Rabat – President Trump has proposed a security and political alliance in the Middle East.

Known formally as the Middle East Strategic Alliance, the proposed alliance would include the six Gulf Arab states—Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates—as well as Egypt and Jordan.

The White House confirmed that they have been working on the prospects of an alliance with “our regional partners now and have been for several months.” The plans arise after President Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia last year, where officials had raised the idea of a security pact.

Sources revealed to Reuters that the administration hopes to discuss the plans for the alliance at a summit, provisionally scheduled for Washington on October 12-13.

The proposed pan-Arab alliance is intended to foster deeper cooperation between the countries on military defense, training, and counter-terrorism and to strengthen economic and diplomatic ties, predicated upon the Sunni Muslim identity of the participating nations.

Antagonistic characterization of Iran

Inherent to the proposed alliance is opposition to Iran.  Some are even calling it the “Arab NATO.” In the easy ring of the disyllabic nickname and the association to the familiar “NATO,” the Trump administration is constructing an analogous narrative in which the alliance would contend against Iran’s looming expansionist powers, likened to that of the Soviet Union.

As a spokesperson from the White House’s National Security Council said, “MESA will serve as a bulwark against Iranian aggression, terrorism, extremism, and will bring stability to the Middle East.”

Such rhetoric has been characteristic of the Trump administration. His foreign policy has depicted Iran as the sole source of instability and conflict in the Middle East.

In his remarks on the Iran strategy on October 13, 2017, Trump outlined that Iran is a “dictatorship” which “remains the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism,” and “proliferates missiles,” and “fueled sectarian violence in Iraq, and vicious civil wars in Yemen and Syria,” holding a “sinister vision for the future.”

Similarly, his 2017 National Security Strategy described Iran as a “dictatorship” and “rogue state” which is “determined to destabilize regions, threaten Americans and our allies and brutalize [its] own people.”

Yet, the administration’s depiction of Iran has hyperbolically inflated the threat of Iran, portraying Iran as a sole catchall catalyst for the instability permeating the Middle East region.

While Iran has certainly sought to limit and undermine US influence in the region, many sources of instability in the Middle East are internal, entrenched in problems of ineffective governance and weak civil society.

This article continues to highlight the evidence of a growing and remarkable New Alliance emerging in the Middle East.  This is not a surprise to Bible Students as it is fully expected that Saudi Arabia along with Egypt and the other southern Arab Nations will support Israel in the latter days making up the King of the South based on Bible Prophecy. 

So this current article will one day soon see a Military Alliance develop and with that a movement develop towards PEACE in the Middle East.

According to Bible Prophecy the Biblical King of the South will see an alignment between Egypt with Israel along with the Arab Gulf States who are largely the descendants of Ishmael the son of Abraham by his wife's maid Hagar (Genesis 16:3). The King of the South will oppose aggression from Russia and the EU.  They will be supported by America and Britain.

Yet again we see that current news is portraying movements towards the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible falling into place before our very eyes.  See this article to learn more about this and the latter day prophecies of the Bible.
