The Watchman On The Wall

The Watchman On The Wall
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Turkey Enters The Qatar Crisis

I think the map above pretty well explains Turkey's interests in Qatar and war torn Syria.

I believe the Lord is putting another piece of the jig saw puzzle into place in the volatile Middle East. 

The Sunnis view the Qatar government as an Iran and Muslim Brotherhood ally and this is a widening of the Sunni Shia religious war in the Middle East. It has spread from Iraq to Syria to Bahrain to Yemen and now to Qatar. 

This crisis has major repercussions for the U.S. economically, politically and for our military air base in Qatar.

Turkey's parliament on Wednesday approved a draft bill allowing its troops to be deployed to a Turkish military base in Qatar, an apparent move to support the Gulf Arab country when it faces diplomatic and trade isolation from some of the biggest Middle Eastern powers.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain severed relations with Qatar and closed their airspace to commercial flights on Monday, charging it with financing militant groups. Qatar denies the accusations.

The Turkish bill passed with 240 votes in favor, largely with support from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and nationalist opposition Nationalist Movement Party (MHP).

Officials from the AKP and MHP said the legislation would allow troops to be deployed to a Turkish base in Qatar, amid reports Turkey is also set to offer food and emergency supplies to the country.
