What is best for this area of the world? I am reminded of this incident:
I use an illustration in my sermons about talking with a Muslim patriarch before I left Zambia. He asked me what I thought about the action in Lebanon. I turned it around to ask him what he thought. He concluded that Israel was never going away and would eventually colonize most of the area. I asked him why he thought that would happen. He answered that it would happen because the Arabs are always fighting among themselves. He described two bible prophecies: Amos 9:14-15 and Gen 16:12.
