Actually the whole location is like a deliberate set-up for endless conflict.
Yes it is, isn't that odd?
Joel 2:1 Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the trumpet on My holy Mountain. Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the YAHWEH HAS COME .
It is NEAR. a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness. Like dawn spreading across the mountains a numerous and mighty people comes,
such as never was of old nor ever will be in ages to come until years of generation after generation . Before them fire devours, behind them a
flames scorches. Before them the land is like the garden of Eden, behind them, a desert waste— there is no remnant from it. They have the
appearance of horses; so like horseman they do run. With a noise like that of chariots they leap over the mountaintops, like a crackling fire
consuming stubble, like a mighty people drawn up for battle. People tremble before it; every face is blackened. They charge like warriors; they
scale walls like soldiers. They all march in line, not swerving from their course. They do not jostle each other; each marches straight ahead. They
plunge through defenses without breaking ranks. They rush upon the city; they run along the wall. They climb into the houses; like thieves they
enter through the windows.
Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine
heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people,
Where is their God?
Nothing new under the sun.
