In another example of growing Israeli-Indian military ties, a new anti-missile system being jointly developed by India and Israel experienced a successful test. The joint Israeli-Indian missile was tested in Israel (no doubt with India’s military and technical personnel present). The missile has a stated range of 70 kilometers, and India intends to deploy them on its warships and these new missiles will also be used by India’s air force. It is likely that this missile can be adapted to either a sea-based or land-based usage. The next test of this new missile system will be conducted in India.
Military cooperation between India and Israel has been steadily growing more varied and broad-based. India and Israel are acting more and more like allies, which makes perfect sense given their geographic situation. India is threatened by its historic Islamic rival, Pakistan as well as China, which is an ally of Pakistan. Israel is most threatened by Shiite Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas (these last three are Iranian proxies). Israel and India both badly need regional allies, and the fact that they are mutually threatened by radicalized Islamic nations pushes Israel and India together. An alliance of India’s manpower and Israel’s technological skills would greatly increase the national security of both nations. Given that India and Israel are also both nuclear powers, they may be cooperating in nuclear weapons expertise as well.
Both the Israelis and Indians are, in my view, going to be targeted in the future by the attack of the Gog-Magog alliance at the very end of this age. The Israelis are the modern Israelite tribe of Judah, and I believe India is substantially descended from “Sheba and Dedan” which are mentioned in Ezekiel 38:13 as not being part of the Gog-Magog alliance. As previous blogs have mentioned, Sheba and Dedan were grandchildren of Abraham via his wife Keturah, and they are mentioned in the same passage mentioning that the sons of Abraham’s concubines were sent away “to the east country” by Abraham in Genesis 25:1-6. If some of Sheba and Dedan’s seed went with the children of Abraham’s concubines to the east, they would all be blessed by God’s promise that Abraham would be the “father of many nations” (Genesis 17:5), that the nations descended from Abraham would have immense combined populations (Genesis 13:16), and that just the descendants of Isaac would number in the billions over the span of mankind’s generations (Genesis 24:60). That total does not include the many sons born to Abraham born via his second wife Keturah, his concubine, Hagar, and all the concubines that were unnamed in Genesis 25:6. India’s large population would help fulfill the prophecy that Abraham’s seed would be as uncountable. Hagar was an Egyptian (Genesis 21:9), and his other unnamed concubines may also have been from non-Semitic origins.
A persuasive indicator that some of Abraham’s seed settled in India is the fact that the dominant caste of India is called the “Brahmins.” As many readers realize, vowels were often not written in ancient languages and were omitted in historical writings. If you put the vowel “A” at the front of the word, Brahmin, you have “Abrahmin,” a word clearly etymologically related to the name of Abraham. The growing alliance of India and the Israelis is further evidence that the nations descended from Abraham are being “herded” by God via world events into an alliance that will rival (and be attacked) by the Gog-Magog alliance at the end of this age. The ten tribes of Israel (the USA, the British nations, and many NATO nations) are now allied in NATO with many of the sons of Keturah who settled in Eastern Europe (research on that descent has been done by Craig White in Australia and his website, Origin of Nations, is accessible at my recommended links). Recent blogs have commented that the Sunni Arab nations (the descendants of Ishmael, Hagar’s son) have been drawing closer to the Israelis due to a shared fear of Iran and the Sunni Arab nations have also been allied to the USA. This alliance of Abraham’s descendants (who would develop into “many nations”) is being put together in the modern world by God’s direction, in my viewpoint.
