JERUSALEM (CC) - Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu announced that his nation has declared war on the Muslim terrorist organization, Hamas. His shocking announcement came this past weekend, almost 50 years to the day of Israel's last declaration of war.

Is this latest outbreak of Arab-Israeli hostilities the forerunner for Armageddon, a war that the Holy Bible prophesies will end with the victorious return of Jesus Christ, King of Kings, Lord of Lords?

Christian Commander is on 24-hour alert, watching, waiting for an answer to that question.

The latest Arab-Israeli war began on Saturday, while sirens started screaming across Israel at around 7am, as Hamas began launching thousands of rockets into Jewish territories, in yet another surprise attack on the Jewish people, from the Islamic stronghold of Gaza, an enclave also called Gaza City or the Gaza Strip.

The Yom Kippur War began on October 6, 1973, when a coalition of Arab states launched a surprise attack against Israel on the sacred Jewish holy day that also occurred during Islam's holy month of Ramadan that year.

Also known as the Ramadan War, the October War, the 1973 Arab-Israeli War or the Fourth Arab-Israeli War, fighting ended after U.N. Security Council Resolution 340 for a ceasefire was adhered to.

Hamas is said to be fronted by Iran, who is allied with Russia. The U.S. is arguably Israel's most reliable ally. During the Yom Kippur War, the Soviet Union supported the Arabs, while America stood firmly behind Israel.

The Bible reveals that the Lord plans on gathering the nations of the world to Israel, in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, or the Valley of Decision, aka the Kidron Valley, Megiddo and Armageddon, for a final war before He returns to end the era of the government of man and usher in His everlasting kingdom. (Daniel 2, Joel 3, Revelation 16:16)
