A Prophetic Image as I Listened to Pres Obama's Cairo Speech

As I listened to the President give his speech a vision rose up.

I saw the President sit down after his speech and the guards who stood by on both sides of the podium were executed. First by a cut into the shoulder then by beheading. These guards being sacrificed went willingly. They knew what was expected. They knew what was coming. They knew that upon the completion of the speech that they must die.

As the blood flowed on the dais, as the severed heads and the bodies fell to the ground, no one moved. No one felt like it was unusual or unexpected. No one grieved for the fallen now dead guards.
I have a sense of what this means, you may as well.
