A Saudi Arabian think tank has outlined a plan to end Israel’s war on Gaza, by transferring the leadership of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas to the Algerian capital, Algiers.
According to a report by French newspaper Le Monde on Wednesday, a “confidential document” released by the Riyadh-based Gulf Research Center was drafted by its director Abdelaziz Al-Sagher following a meeting on 19 November in the Kingdom with Anne Grillo, head of the North Africa and Middle East Department at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The document is said to have made its way to the ministry, the report added.
Le Monde reports today on a Saudi plan that would see senior Hamas leaders exiled to #Algeria.
Algiers is staying silent for now, but is likely to accept a plan that would enable it to claim both a role in peacebuilding and a show of support for Palestinian resistance. https://t.co/XbqB8El8oT

Le Monde said that the choice of Algeria as a potential destination for exiled Hamas leaders was due to its “favorable relations with Qatar and Iran, identified as ‘the main supporters of the Hamas movement,’ and its perceived ‘security capacity’ to effectively ‘monitor the activities of these leaders.’”
The specific suggestion for the transfer of “the military and security leaders of Hamas” is believed to refer to commander of the movement’s armed wing, Al-Qassam Brigades, Mohammed Dief and the leader of Hamas in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar.
Other aspects of the plan include the deployment of Arab peacekeeping forces to Gaza, under a UN mandate, and the creation of a “joint transition council,” bringing together the main parties in Gaza (including Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad) who would be “responsible for managing the enclave for four years and organizing presidential and parliamentary elections.”
Last month, Algeria’s parliament voted unanimously in favour of authorising President Abdelmadjid Tebboune to go to war against the occupation state in solidarity with Palestine. It was reported by local media that all members of the Algerian People’s National Assembly (APN) voted in favour to allow Tebboune to express support for Gaza.
Israel at war with Hamas what will happen?
This war with Hamas has been foretold in the Bible and its result has also been foretold and it is leading to the time of the end when Christ will return.
It’s interesting that the very word ‘Hamas’ is a Hebrew Biblical word found in…
1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. 2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult (Heb ESL 1993): and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
1993 הָמָה [hamah /haw·maw/] or hamas v. A primitive root [compare 1949]; TWOT 505; GK 2159; 34 occurrences; AV translates as “roar” eight times, “noise” six times, “disquieted” four times… Signifies: 1a (Qal). 1a1 to growl. 1a2 to murmur (fig. of a soul in prayer). 1a3 to roar. 1a4 to be in a stir, be in a commotion. 1a5 to be boisterous, be turbulent.
So very much like the modern day ‘Hamas’ terror group attacking Israel now.
Psalm 83 is a prophetic psalm that speaks of Israel’s enemies right up until Christ and the God’s Kingdom is established as it concludes with these words:
17 Let them be confounded and troubled forever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: 18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is YAHWEH, art the most high over all the earth.
This time can only refer to when God’s Kingdom and Glory is established on the Earth.
Interestingly Joel 3 which is about the lead up to Armageddon says that Saudi Arabia shall be on control of the Gaza and Southern Lebanon areas where these terrorists are.
” 4 “Now what have you against me, Tyre and Sidon (southern Lebanon = Hezbollah) and all you regions of Philistia? (Gaza = Hamas) Are you repaying me for something I have done? If you are paying me back, I will swiftly and speedily return on your own heads what you have done. 5 For you took my silver and my gold and carried off my finest treasures to your temples. m 6 You sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks, that you might send them far from their homeland. 7 “See, I am going to rouse them out of the places to which you sold them, and I will return on your own heads what you have done. 8 I will sell your sons and daughters to the people of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans, (Saudi Arabia, see below) a nation far away.” The Lord has spoken. 9 Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare for war! Rouse the warriors! Let all the fighting men draw near and attack. 10 Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weakling say, “I am strong!” 11 Come quickly, all you nations from every side, and assemble there. Bring down your warriors, Lord! 12 “Let the nations be roused; let them advance into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, for there I will sit to judge all the nations on every side. 13 Swing the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, trample the grapes, for the winepress is full and the vats overflow— so great is their wickedness!” 14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. 15 The sun and moon will be darkened, and the stars no longer shine. 16 The Lord will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the heavens will tremble. But the Lord will be a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel.”
שְׁבָא (compare Æth. ሰብእ፡ man), [Sheba],—(1) Sabœans, Sabœa, a nation and region of Arabia Felix, rich in frankincense, spices, gold and gems, 1 Ki. 10:1, seq.; Isai. 60:6; Jer. 6:20; Ezek. 27:22; Ps. 72:15; carrying on a celebrated traffic, Eze. loc. cit.; Ps. 72:10; Joel 4:8; Job 6:19; but Job 1:15, carrying on depredations in the neighbourhood of Ausitis. The genealogies in Genesis mention three men of this name—(a) the grandson of Cush, and son of Raamah, Gen. 10:7;—(b) a son of Joktan, Genesis 10:28 (which accords with the Arabic traditions);—(c) a grandson of Ketura, Gen. 25:3; and in two of the places (a, c), Shebah is coupled with Dedan his brother; this I would thus account for, by supposing that there were two Arabian tribes of this name, the one descended from Joktan in southern Arabia (letter b), the other dwelling by the northern desert of Arabia, near the Persian gulf and the mouth of the Euphrates (letters a, c, and Job loc. cit. [But a and c were of different ancestry]).
= Modern day Saudi Arabia
It is also, interesting that Israel have said that once they are removed Hamas they no longer want to be in control of this area.
Based on Bible Prophecy we expect to see Saudi Arabia take some part in stabilising this whereby a degree of Peace will exist with Israel and the Palestinians and those on her northern border as all the terrorist’s on Israel’s borders must be removed for Israel to dwell at peace with her neighbours. Saudi Arabia and Egypt will all be key parties to this forming what is seen in the Bible as the emergence of the ‘King of the South’ see this article for more information.
