Surprise attack

Rabbi Jonathan Blass

17 Adar II 5763
Question
Do you think the surprise attack discribed in ezekiel 38 and 39 of the old testament is close to becomming reality with the current events going on with the united states going after iraq? This will cause a major uproar with the arabs and they will all be focused on Israely Palistian conflict. Thank You
Answer
It is important to fight terror and prevent the murder of innocent people like the kind of attack that took place on 9/11. The United States, which is now combatting terror in Iraq, should- together with other civilized nations- support Israel's ongoing fight against Palestinian terror. We cannot know the exact meaning of Biblical prophecies until after they have been realized. In the meantime it is up to each of us to act morally and responsibly.
