Israel's process of inclusion into the NATO alliance began in 1994 when the North Atlantic Council created the Mediterranean Dialogue which is composed of six non-NATO countries of the Mediterranean region: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia, plus Mauritania in the heart of West Africa. The purpose of the Dialogue is for stability and security. More recently the nations of NATO and the Dialogue have been referred to as NATO+7. Military cooperation and coordination constitute 85% of the activity engaged in, making the NATO+7 essentially a military precursor to full integration into the NATO alliance. Opening a Mission in NATO's Brussels HQ is, again, a major step in that direction.
I cannot think of a single 'last days' prophecy from this point forward where there is not some significant aspect involved either prior to or during the 70th Week. Most important of the significant prophetic aspects, I believe, is the "confirming of the covenant among many" which initiates the 70th Week. This is truly a goose bumps breaking news story, with some serious 'past is prologue' implications as well.
