After yesterday's news that French President Jacque Chirac is pressing for the European Union to approve the controversial unity government deal signed in Mecca, Saudi Arabia earlier in the month, it has been reported today that three French citizens have been shot dead and one critically wounded in a terrorist attack in this same country. 

Quote: "A senior diplomat told Reuters that two Europeans, possibly French nationals, were shot on a road between touristic ruins at Madain Saleh and Medina in the west of the vast desert country on Monday morning. "They were two Caucasians, but what they were doing there I don't know," he said. "We heard that two French died and one is seriously injured," another diplomat said. U.S. and British diplomats said they had heard reports of an incident but did not believe that any of their nationals were involved. French diplomats were not answering phone calls. Saudi interior ministry spokesmen were not available for comment.

Having started to read my friend Judy's book, Eye to Eye, which details America's dealings with Israel in the division of the Holy Land and the subsequent "judgements" on the United States, this news just seemed to jump out at me. The author of the book, William Koenig, believes that God is presently judging the nations that are touching His land, through natural disasters and other catastrophes that seem to befall them shortly after major developments in the Middle East peace process. Saudi Arabia was of course the nation that hosted the Palestinian unity government talks, and France is pressing the European Union to accept the deal, offering legitimacy to a terrorist government bent on the destruction of Israel. Earlier in the month Israel was struck by two moderate earthquakes, also the day following the signing of the Palestinian unity government agreement in Mecca. 

Isaiah 52:8 
Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye (i.e. the prophecy and its subsequent fulfilment), when the LORD shall bring again Zion.
