Haftarah Repeats Itself

Did anyone notice how this week's (Parshat Hukat) Haftarah had a lot of similarities to events happening today?

Ammon: You took our land!

Yiftah: No we didn't! Hashem gave it to us in battle, a defensive one at that.

Actually, I was once asked to give a talk at a friends Shul. Since it was political I wanted to add in a bit of Torah. So at the end I paraphrased the arguments between Ammon and Yiftach. My friend's son realized what I was doing, but I think most everyone else was a little surprised when it turned out I was talking about Nevi'im.
