Turkey has been pursuing a policy called “strategic depth doctrine” or “neo-Ottomanism,” which is a push to resurrect at least part of the old Ottoman Empire. As can be seen in the image of the map of the Ottoman Empire, numerous areas highlighted in Ezekiel 38 were once part of that empire. Will it rise again? Certainly, in part, it appears likely and with the greater power just given to Erdogan, either he or a successor will likely be able to move with greater speed and clarity toward this new “caliphate” (a geographic area controlled by a caliph in Islam).
The truth is that the people called “Palestinians” are a construct, a PR creation to advance an ideology and narrative that deposes Israel and Jews living in the Middle East. It is also important to understand why Israel continues to exist and the plans God has for Israel’s future.
