Because He knew the spirit of islam would never cease in their quest to annihilate the Jewish people . Has anything changed since 1948 and before ?? Only a change to gradual destruction because all out war cause's their defeat at the hands of Israel . Should Israel trust a single word they say - NO ! Should Israel trust a single word the rest of the nations say - NO ! Why ?? Because it is written that there will only be true peace when The Jewish Messish is ruling the world from the capital of Israel - JERUSALEM . Until then there will be continual war - to test the nations until their wickedness reaches its fullness . G-D'S Judgement is according to how they treated Israel and the Jewish people's of the world . HENCE G-D , IN HIS AMAZING GRACE , TRAINS ISRAEL'S HANDS FOR WAR !!!
