So if this is the start of the alignment in Ez 38, how do these countries get to Israel when they have to go through Lebanon and / or Syria which are not mentioned in the chapter? Put (Libya) and Cush (Sudan) would have to go through Egypt which is also not mentioned. My own opinion is that Syria (Is 17) and Egypt (Ez 29) will be so weak and possibly aligned with these countries without necessarily contributing. Or maybe God did not include all of the aliance members coming against the Holy Land.
Israel is dwelling at peace when the attack comes. Some have suggested that this attack only comes after the antichrist deceives Israel with false peace. Here only a few nations are listed with others in protest but by the time Armageddon comes all nations are fighting against Israel.
