The next country to look at was Syria. I believe that as I said back in November it is only a matter of time before Syrian President Assad is gone. Syria is a very important country, and will go Islamist because it figures heavily in Bible prophecy. It is also given an important place in Islamic eschatology. It is from there that the Islamic Jesus will come back to Earth. Yes, you Christians heard me correctly! Muslims believe, probably more so, than most Christian churchgoers that Jesus is literally coming back to Earth in the last days. According to their traditions, he will land in Syria. So it is a logical conclusion, that today's " moderate dictatorship" that currently runs that nation will eventually become more radically Islamic.
Though in the realm of geopolitics events seem to come in fits and starts, they also like waves on the ocean, still continue to move forward until they eventually reach the shore. We may have seen a lot of movement in 2011, that has seemingly drifted out of the headlines. But, according to this interpretation of end times events, eventually all of the moderate Middle Eastern nations will fall to become part of a larger Islamic Caliphate of sorts.
It doesn't take a whole lot of imagination to contemplate what this turning of the tide would do to that region of the world, our global economy, and the effects that it would have on the state of Israel. So, a praying Christians, we must always adhere to the Lord's request for us to "pray for the peace of Jerusalem". And because He is above all the Father of all, remember too to pray that the light, and love of His grace shine in the hearts of all mankind so that they see Jesus as their saviour first, before they see Him as their judge.
