And in the future, Bnei Yishmael will awake to cause strong wars in the world and Edom will gather on them and begin a war on water, one on land, and one close to Jerusalem.
Prophecy speaks of a war that will be between Yishmaelim and Edomim in the Holy Land... A nation will come quickly to battle another nation who is shocking the world and will bring judgement on Edom...Edom nation shocks the world and instigates wars;
WHO IS EDOM?
During Shabbat, I was reading Parshat Toldot in "Ahavat Chaim", a sefer written by the Mekubal Rav Menachem Menashe zs'l.
(Translation from the Sefer). At the End of Days, Ishmael will fall in Eretz Israel.
Me'am Loez (zs'l) says the nation of Ishmaelim are multiplied more than all 70 nations and no nation will be safe from them. They are dangerous because they are פרא אדם savage and uncivilized. Our Merciful Father scattered them to all 4 corners and each has its own kingdom, and HKB'H entered hatred onto them so they will never be able to unite, and therefore, will never be able to destroy the world. At the end of days, the wicked Edom will try to unite the Ishmaelim so both can go to fight for Yerushalayim.
Prophet Yeshaya (zs'l) says "On that day, HaShem will befall with His big, strong, and hard sword on the leviatan (לויתן) and deadbolt snake (נחש בריח).
Rashi (zs'l) explains on Targum Yonatan (zs'l) who will HaShem befall with the strong sword? On a king that is political like Pharaoh.
Mezudat David (zs'l) says that the livyatan is Ishmael and Edom.
Rashi HaKadosh says the deadbolt snake is EGYPT. Egypt will cause Israel much pain and will not let Israel to go in or out and they planned all this secretly. As it says "נחש עקלתון אשר בים - The zigzag curved snake that is in the sea".
And ""On that day, HaShem will erase with His big, strong, and hard sword on the leviatan (לויתן) and deadbolt snake (נחש בריח)". The strength the sword of HaShem to kill the snake will be received from Bnei Israel, from the power of prayers - especially Yerushalayim residents. The prayers from Olam HaTachton (lower world) will assist to erase Israel's enemies with HaShem's sword.
The Zohar HaKadosh says Ishmael and Edom are called by the Torah snakes - they are compared to snakes biting because they cannot be silenced till both Moshiachs (Moshiach ben Yosef and Moshiach ben Dovid) are revealed.
In Sefer Shmena Lachmo, it says that EDOM IS RUSSIA!!!
All the puzzle pieces are coming together. And we are witnessing all the prophecies materialing.
(מלך ערבי) is Arab King (ruler/leader). Which מלך ערבי is it referring to? The ילקוט שמעוני Yalkut Shimoni says that this should be read מלך מערב, King of the West. Who is the ruler that is being provoked in the Western world? Gog Bush.
The key players in the End of Days are Gog Bush, Ehud Omert (Armilus), Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Vladimir Putin. Edom אֱדוֹם in English is RED. Now we can understand why Russia calls its army the RED ARMY.
The Honest Broker:
In its recent dealing with Iran and Hamas, Russia has succeeded in achieving a major geopolitical objective. And it has done so with relatively little cost. It has managed to convince many in the Muslim world that it is willing to play the role of "the honest broker". representatives of Hamas, on returning from their trip to Moscow, praised the Russian efforts at mediation, and noted that Russia's geographical position made it the ideal party to settle differences between the Islamic world and the West.

רבי יצחק: שנה שמלך המשיח נגלה בו, כל מלכי האומות מתגרים זה בזה, מלך פרס מתגרה במלך ערבי. וכל אומות העולם מתרעשים ומתבהלים ונופלים על פניהם. ויאחזו אותם צירים כצירי יולדה, "Rabi Yitzhok said: 'The year that Melech HaMoshiach will be revealed, all the nations of the world will be provoking each other. The King of Persia (Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) will provoke the King of Arabia (USA, George Bush), and the King of Arabia will go to Edom (Russia Vladimir Putin) to take counsel, but the King of Persia will in turn, destroy the entire world. The nations of the world will be outraged and panicked. They will fall on their faces, and they will experience pains like birth pangs.
US President Bush is said to be considering with interest Russian President Putin's proposal that Iran's fuel enrichment program be moved to Russia to prevent Iran's development of nuclear arms. (Now we know that's a lot like hiring the fox to guard the hen house). Prophet Ezekiel (zs'l) revealed 2600 years ago that Russia would be the Moslem coalition's primary source of arms when they all attack Israel together.
אהבתי אתכם, אמר יהוה, ואמרתם, במה אהבתנו; הלוא אח עשו ליעקב, נאם יהוה, ואהב, את יעקב.
(Ovadia's prophecy) Nations of the world will proclaim war against Edom. Because of Edom's arrogance it will eventually suffer humiliation, as Hashem will humble Edom. Eventually Edom's enemies will deceive her, plunder her and rob her. It will be trapped into going to war, which it will lose. Edom's land will become desolate, because she opposed Jacob. Edom mistreats its brother nation, Israel. Due to Edom's sins its ultimate punishment will be retribution. Edom will be repaid measure for measure for tormenting Israel. Finally the Jewish nation will be redeemed. Israel's exiles will return and its' future borders will be restored. Hashem's Kingdom will be established forever.
ועלו מושיעים בהר ציון לשפוט את הר עשו והיתה לה' המלוכה - For the day of HaShem is near upon all of the nations; as you have done, so shall it be done to you, your deeds shall return upon your head... And liberators shall ascend Mount Zion to judge the Mountain of Esav. - Ovadiah 1: 15-16,21
