Wasn't that 1967? 40 years would be 2007 so it ended 7 years ago, not 25. Unless I missed something. Plus, the 40 year generation isn't in the Bible (I don't think) so even that is iffy. But still valid points that we really have no idea until it happens.
Israel became a nation in 1948, and was immediately fighting against surrounding Arabs for its life. Israel preempted "surprise" attacks in 1956 and 1967, winning both wars. So (1948) + (40) = 1988; and (2014) - (1988) = 26.
I really do not understand why you questioned my comment, "(t)hat approximately 40 years ended over 25 years ago," without first checking Wikipedia or using Google to learn when modern Israel became a nation.
