Wondering athanasius if this is meant to happen.
I think so daygo, because everytime I read Ezek 38 it always strikes me that the govt of Israel at that time is both weak and foolish. I always had a hard time seeing them as dwelling carelessly, when Benjamin Netanyahu was in charge but now that Hebrew word in there about dwelling without bars and walls-- without fear has an underlying meaning of dwelling carelessly, without being aware of the threats. That describes the current govt, and no doubt more to come yet.

I'm wondering if this is why and how The Sanhedrin come into power...
The Sanhedrin are gaining power quietly. They are behind the religious conservative votes that usually go with Benjamin Netanyahu but under Bennett-- many of them broke away to follow Bennett and his side kick Ayelet Shaked.

It's an odd alliance because that puts them with Bennett, and his allies in the Muslim Brotherhood Arab MK's along with the leftists. NONE of which would gain any power in any free vote, but because they team up, they made the winning coalition. That means back room deals are going on like crazy to keep the religious conservatives happy because they make up a huge sector of the votes.

The bottom line is--the religious conservatives-- who are the ones pushing for the Sanhedrin and a return to the religious laws are holding a TREMENDOUS amount of power in the background.

There was a huge kerfuffle a few months back because the leftists want to keep religious laws out of hospitals and health care and SOMEBODY brought in leavened bread during Passover. Non Jews are allowed to eat it but this upset the Sanhedrin types in the coalition and nearly brought down the coalition back in the spring.

The mainstream news doesn't report on it, but the Sanhedrin is coming into more and more power as time goes by.
