It was an ABM (Arafat-Bush-Mubarak) defeat. Bush had pushed Arafat and bet on Mubarak as the voice of moderation to sway the Arabs. All three went down together. Mubarak cited unspecified domestic commitments, and Sharon rejected permission for Arafat to attend the Summit even though Arafat decided it would be wise not to ask for fear that he might not be allowed to return. What's more, 10 of the 22 Arab leaders will not attend the Summit. And two other peace plans are circulating in addition to the Saudi Plan. And it rained today in Beirut as a weather elephant passed over.
Most of this came to a head today. It is typical of the Arabs, who have never been able to unite. And in the face of such a clear-cut victory, there was only one national leader in the world who stood up for Israel, and that was Ariel Sharon. He didn't bow to political pressure nor cater to Washington hypocrisy.

A large weather elephant stretched along the eastern seaboard from Maine to Florida. There was also a weather elephant over Lebanon for the Arab Summit. An elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal.

Another weather elephant was over Lebanon to rain on Arabs arriving for the Summit in Beirut. The weather elephant over the eastern seaboard of the USA was obviously associated with the weather elephant over Lebanon. They were both signs of a demon Commander, such as Baal.
When the smoke cleared, Ariel Sharon was the only man left standing. All the politicians were preparing to eat crow. They tried to bully and badger Sharon into denying the Abrahamic Covenant. He survived their bullying. Now the question is whether the Bush Administration will admit it's error or proceed to support the Arabs.
The signs are beginning to show that US envoy, Anthony Zinni, is also failing to secure a cease fire. The conflict has heated up during his peace mission. The problem is that the Palestinians want a cease fire that does not require them to arrest terrorists.
Today was March 26th, for Political Babylon, which has often been associated with the US. The US didn't get its way with the Arabs even when it supported them. The message there is that Washington politicians don't control history. The Lord does. And it was Day 85, for an eye or spy. An eye symbolizes grace. There was certainly the victory of grace today.
