Hagee once again uses fantastic
predictions to explain biblical passages that have no reference to any
of his claims. All of his predictions on this passage are drawn from speculation
and have no basis historically. Nowhere in Daniel is there any reference
to "oil" as the driving force of this invasion, nor is there any symbolism
in Daniel that can be interpreted as being oil. If Daniel saw "oil"
as one of the major factors for this conflict, is it not logical for Daniel
to at least create a symbol for oil or even mention this in any of his
passages? Daniel was specifically writing to an audience of his time
and was dealing with issues relevant to the era in which he was writing.
It is important not to forget the historical context of Biblical texts.
