Lebanese Shi’ite group Hezbollah on Friday welcomed Russia’s military buildup in Syria in support of common ally President Bashar al-Assad, saying it was the failure of a U.S.-led campaign against Islamic State that had forced Moscow’s hand.

The relevant Scripture:

And the word of the LORD came to me saying, 2 “Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog [modern-day Russia], the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him 3 and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal [all in area of modern-day Russia]. … 5 Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet; 6 Gomer with all its troops; Beth-togarmah from the remote parts of the north with all its troops– many peoples with you. 7 “Be prepared, and prepare yourself, you and all your companies that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them. … 15 “You will come from your place out of the remote parts of the north [Russia is directly north of Israel], you and many peoples [Islamists of the Middle East and Iran] with you, all of them riding on horses, a great assembly and a mighty army;  16 and you will come up against My people Israel like a cloud to cover the land. It shall come about in the last days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me when I am sanctified through you before their eyes, O Gog [the leader of Russia].

How does Shia Iran fit into the picture? Ah, for that, you need read chapter 4 of my book, Islam the Cloak of Antichrist. If you click here, I will send it to you free for the cost of the shipping!
