OK - maybe this is nothing, and am looking too much into it. Was wondering everyone's thoughts on this.
In anticipation of returning to the 1967 borders perhaps?

Video: Gilo Security Wall Comes Tumbling Down - for Now
by Hezki Ezra & Yoni Kempinski
The IDF has begun removing the wall which was put up in 2001 in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo when it came under intense near-daily rifle attacks from the adjacent Arab neighborhood of Beit Jalla. Israel National News TV was on the scene Sunday and spoke with the IDF representative and local residents.

"We were approached by the Jerusalem municipality, which requested that we remove this wall," explained IDF Home Front Command's Brig.-Gen. Chezi Revivo. "After a professional assessment of the current situation at the IDF Home Front Command, the Home Front commander issued the dismantling order."
One of the local residents told Israel National News TV that he is very scared now that the wall is being removed: "It must not be moved now! Do you think that they're not waiting for this? Tomorrow morning there will be firing towards here, and when that happens and someone dies, we'll talk again."
However, the head of the local administration of the neighborhood chose to express complete support in the act: "When the security authorities decided that it was necessary [to put it up], we were behind them," he said, "and when they now decide that it can be removed, we continue to back them up and believe in them."
And what will be if, G-d forbid, the attacks are renewed? The IDF will not be putting these cement pieces too far away, in case of need. "We're trying to keep everything in order, according to how it was placed here," explained Brig.-Gen. Revivo, "but we of course hope that we won't need to put this puzzle back together."
Folks, something to consider: Israel is still surrounded by Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia. How would Israel be able to be described as living in safety when these enemies are baying at her borders? Also, they are not mentioned in Ezekiel 38, so they are either not extant or are in no condition to attack Israel. That to me says Psalm 83 has to happen first.
Additionally, with these enemies surrounding her, Israel can hardly be described as living in 'peace and safety' as described in scripture. No, i don't think Ezekiel 38 is about to happen, but I also don't think it's too far off either.
Thank you, everyone, for your thoughts - wasn't sure myself at first(and while youtube has been a blessing with many Christians making nice contributions, sometimes even they can over-state things a bit too much), which is why I appreciate all the feedback.
We will see - like we've all said here, let scripture interpret scripture, and God fulfill prophecy in his timetable.
I just "makes sense" that Psalm 83 is yet to happen. The Arabs are rich beyond belief with all that oil and are boastful and arrogant about their wealth and their religion. They feel that God... "Allah" has richly rewarded them.
It's about time for "show time".
