The 2 Nations Left at the End of the World - Edom and Paras
The events that are occurring throughout the Middle East show that nationalities are disappearing in favor of democratization and Islamization. They are either influenced by the West or by Iran. The people of these nations will have to decide between these two sides. There will be no more middle ground. Nationalities will be nationalities by name only.
Iran has been making alliances throughout the world, including South American countries, like Brazil and Venezuela. North Korea and China are its allies as well. It seems amazing that the leader of Iran can talk the way he does about destroying Israel, and then continue to make friends and wield its influence throughout the world. However, logic doesn't have to come into play when dealing with things that are decreed Above.
The gemara in Avoda Zara 2b says that Edom and Paras will be the last ones standing before Mashiah. The gemara in Yoma 10a says that they will fight each other and one will win, and then, Mashiah can come. The Yalkut Shimoni and Pesikta Rabbati have Paras threatening to destroy the world while the Arabs ask Edom for help.
Before I quote the Ben Yehoyada, it's important to know that sometimes the word "אדום" (Edom) in the words of Haza"l is called "ארם" (Aram). The Ben Yehoyada on Avoda Zara 2b says that the 2 nations of ארם and פרס have Rashei Teivot of אף (anger) - this is a bad sign for the rest of the nations. Also the Sofei Teivot is מס - this is also a bad sign for the other nations, as they are melting away (המסה). The middle letters make up ר"ר, whose gematria equals 400, which are the powers of the Sitra Ahora, just like Eisav had 400 men with him. This is also a bad sign for the other nations as this is from the the expression in the Torah רר בשרו - saying that they will continue to melt away when the good parts of those nations will be filtered out of them.
