Arab League Wants to Take Steps About Libya

There is still fighting going on in Libya and the Arab League has apparently taken sides:

Cairo – Arab foreign ministers on Saturday began discussing the possibility of imposing a no-fly zone over Libya at an Arab League meeting in Cairo.

The Libyan delegation, which arrived in Cairo on Friday, did not attend the meeting.

The League suspended Libya’s membership last month because of the violence used by government forces against protesters calling for Moamer Gaddafi to step down.

Libyan rebels called Saturday for help from the Arab League as it met for key talks on the conflict, including recognition for their council and backing for a no-fly zone to help their battered forces.

On the front line, rebel fighters had pulled back from the town of Ras Lanuf, where an oil refinery was still in flames and Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi’s forces appeared to be in control, AFP reporters said.

Arab League Secretary General Amr Mussa also called for a no-fly zone and said he wants the pan-Arab organisation to play a role in imposing it, in an interview published Saturday.

Germany and the European Union foreign policy chief have both said they would look to the Arab League’s decision to help guide their own policy on the issue.

The 27 EU members on Friday endorsed the Libyan National Council as “a political interlocutor.”

Two diplomats say the Arab League has agreed to ask the UN Security Council to impose a no-fly zone over Libya, a decision that would give a regional seal of approval that NATO has said is needed for any military action.

The Arab League is making some gestures and getting some support from the EU.  Those gestures, plus the fact that many fleeing Libyans have been allowed into some of the Arab League countries, will likely bode well for the Arab League after the situation in Libya stabilizes.  Having the Arab League doing anything  may help Arabs feel that they need to trust themselves more than ever.

As I have been reporting, I believe that interim governments will likely be put in place in Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia and other lands in the Middle East/North Africa.  These will be followed ultimately by one that supports a pan-Arabic leader known biblically as the King of the South, but also known as the Caliph or Imam Mahdi by various ones in the Islamic world. The stage clearly is being set for this to happen as this latest step by the Arab League is consistent with that.

Notice what one Muslim wrote about the appearance of their Mahdi:


The world will be filled with a great amount of injustice and oppression. There will be widespread evil in which all people will be heavily involved.

Muslim countries and their people will have become so weak that even animals would defeat them in battle.

Muslims would be totally disunited, hence their state of weakness. On the other hand, the Kuffar of the whole world would be united under one leader…

Throughout the world earthquakes would occur frequently. Innocent people will be put to death…

I would suggest that the protesters and rebels in the Middle East believe that they have been subject to injustice and oppression. If an earthquake happens in the region, it would seem that some may consider that to be a sign for the leader to rise up as they already believe that they have the injustice and oppression.

Yet, while it may also take a war in the Middle East for this leader to rise up, civil unrest, riots, rebellions, demonstrations, and protests may also be involved. Things are changing in the Arab world. And events are lining up for the King of the South/Imam Mahdi to arise.

R.C. Meredith of the Living Church of God (LCG) wrote:

Al Qaeda named its Internet newscast, which debuted in September, ‘The Voice of the Caliphate.’…Kerem Acar, a tailor in central Istanbul {said} ‘…one day maybe my children’s children will see someone declare himself the caliph, like the pope, and have an impact’” (January 14, 2006).  Indeed, a coming “Mahdi” whose arrival Muslims are expecting—in Bible prophecy known as the “King of the South” (Daniel 11:40–45)—will soon arise and have a dramatic impact on world events. This powerful Muslim religious leader will unite many of the more than one billion Muslims. He will pose a genuine threat to the coming European Empire, which will have to crush that threat in order to continue exploiting Middle Eastern oil to further its military ambitions. (Meredith RC. Prophecy Fulfilled: God’s Hand in World Affairs. LCG Booklet, 2007, pp. 16-17)

And the current situation in Libya and elsewhere in the Arab world seem to be pointing in that direction. There will also be more riots in Europe and even some in the USA, but the ones in the Middle East are the ones that will apparently set the stage for the rising up of the final King of the South.
