Iran and Syria warn Israel



Both Iran and Syria are warning that action may be taken against Israel for its recent incursion into Syria:

4 February 2013

(DAMASCUS, Syria) — A top Iranian official visiting Damascus on Monday said Israel will regret its “latest aggression” on Syria and said the entire Muslim world should be ready to defend the Syrian people.

Saeed Jalili, the head of Iran’s National Security Council…“Just as it regretted its aggressions after the 33-day, 22-day and eight-day wars, today the Zionist entity will regret the aggression it launched against Syria,” Jalili said, referring to past wars between Israel and the Lebanese militant Hezbollah and Palestinian Hamas groups…

“The Islamic world will not allow aggression against Syria,” Jalili said. “Syria stands on the front line of the Islamic world against the Zionist regime … The Islamic world must show due reaction to the Israeli aggression.”

A top Iranian official says Israel will regret its latest “aggression” against Syria.

The head of Iran’s National Security Council, Saeed Jalili, said Monday in a visit to Damascus that the Muslim world supports Syria…

The Syrian government has said Israeli jets targeted the Jamraya military research facility outside Damascus.

In his first reported response to the attack, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad accused Israel Sunday of seeking to destabilize Syria and said his military forces could confront “any aggression” against it.

Syrian ambassador to Lebanon Ali Abdul-Karin Ali has said Damascus has the “option” of carrying out a “surprise” response to the alleged Israeli attack. He did not elaborate his remarks to Lebanese website Al-Ahad.

Iran has long tried to get the rest of the Islamic world to support it with its military/religious objectives to take over Jerusalem from Israel.  While some in Israel are concerned, some others have suggested an overconfidence that they may later regret (see Israeli confidence may be misplaced).

As far as Iran and Israel, notice something from my book, Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term:

Iran, Islamic Prophecy, and 2013-2016

Because Bible prophecy indicates that it will be primarily Arabic nations that support the final King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43; Ezekiel 30:1-8), though with some (probably temporary per Daniel 11:25-26) support from Turkey, it is not biblically likely that Iran can truly be the leader of the Islamic world as it seems to want to be.  Iran will be effectively neutralized, as I have long written, perhaps from an attack involving Israel and/or internal civil unrest (this could include electromagnetic [EMP] or similar weapons used against Iran.  Note: The U.S.A. itself is vulnerable to EMP type attacks and they and/or items such as biological weapons, chemical weapons, terrorism, nuclear weapons, dirty bombs, etc. could affect the U.S.A. because of a conflict involving Iran, Syria, and/or others).

Various prophecies of the Mahdi indicate that he would return in an even numbered year, like the one beginning with the end of 2012, since the Islamic calendar runs differently than the Roman calendar.  Islamic year 1434 runs from November 15, 2012 to November 3, 2013.  Islamic year 1436 runs from October 25, 2014 through October 14, 2015; while Islamic year 1438 runs from October 2, 2016 through September 21, 2017 (which would be other periods that the Mahdi allegedly can rise up).

Apparently in March 2011, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad approved a video that quotes someone as saying this Imam Mahdi leader arrives after a time of great earthquakes and sedition.  It says that, according to the Hadith, Iran is to be among the “preparers” for the arrival of the Imam.  It blames the U.S.A. and its allies for causing Islamic fear-mongering since 9/11/2001.  The video indicates that Islamic writings have warned that westerners would invade the Middle East first; it suggests that Iraq and other western military interventions are proof that the Imam Mahdi is about to appear.  It tells that a time of Arab/Islamic cooperation is prophesied, while also claiming that annihilation of the “Zionist regime” needs to happen prior to the arrival of the Mahdi.

And the video goes further.  It says that the Hadith tells of a leader named Abdullah, states that the ill King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is the first Abdullah leader in a hundred years, and then it cites something that states when Abdullah dies the reappearance is guaranteed.  It claims that Iran is the most powerful force in the Middle East.  It claims that their prophecies state that a Seyed Khorasani will turn Jerusalem over to the Imam Mahdi.  It discusses prophesies that Islamic antichrists must rise up and hints that the Free Masons, with their influence on American, European, Israeli, and apparently certain Arabic leaders, has fulfilled this.  The video shows a picture of Hosni Mubarak along with a prophecy that the leader of Egypt must die prior to the arrival of the Imam Mahdi.  (However, even though Hosni Mubarak is no longer the leader of Egypt, he still was alive but ill in early 2013.  So might some in Iran decide they need to do something soon?)

It also essentially tries to explain who is Seyed Khorasani (the current top leader of Iran).  It also says that 72 months prior to the arrival of the Imam Mahdi that Seyed Khorasani will appoint Shoeib to assist.  It then asks if “Doctor” Ahmadinejad could be the Shoeib.  It shows Ahmadinejad making various speeches and discusses him taking over Jerusalem in the future–and prior to the arrival of the Imam Mahdi.  It basically ends with stating that the Imam Mahdi will rise up soon and that all should praise God with Jihad.

In earlier speeches, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has suggested that the Imam Mahdi would rise up prior to him leaving his office, as preparing the way for him is supposedly his mission.  (Thiel B. Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term. Nazarene Books, 2013, pp. 22-24)

As regular readers of the COGwriter news page are aware, I have been warning for some time that a regional war involving Iran, Israel, the USA, and/or Syria seems likely.  And Iran keeps taking steps which may help it get ready for such a war.

Since Iran, however, is NOT really south of Jerusalem (though it may support such a king per certain interpretations of the peoples listed in Ezekiel 30:1-9), it will not be the final King of the South of Bible prophecy (cf. Daniel 11:40-43). Because of that, I have tended to believe that Iran may somehow get “neutralized” before this final king rises up.

My reading and re-reading of Bible prophecy simply does not show that Iran will be a major player in Daniel 11:21-44 nor the deal of Psalm 83:4-8 (Arabs, Turks, and Europeans are); though Ezekiel 30:1-9 possibly implicates Iran as a supporter of an end-time confederation involving Egypt.

“Neutralizing” Iran would allow most of the other Islamic states (like Saudi Arabia and Egypt) to continue to exist (Syria might not do well per Isaiah 17:1) and allow for the rising of the prophesied King of the South to rise up (revolution in Iran, is also another possibility, for its “neutralization”).

Syria, itself, is in a tough spot.  It is having trouble with the opposition military which is strengthening and attempting to over throw its government.  It is increasingly becoming isolated internationally.  It is also facing criticism because it has not responded militarily to Israel’s attacks last week (see New fighting in Syria and ramifications for Israel).

It may well decide that it needs to engage Israel in some type of battle or war and this may not turn out well for either of those countries.

Iran and/or Syria could severely damage Israel, and since Israel knows that, it may decide it has to hit Iran and/or Syria quite hard if attacked.  Of course, the Bible shows that Syria’s capital city Damascus (Isaiah 7:8) will be destroyed (Isaiah 17:1).  And this could be a factor that ultimately leads to the fulfillment of Daniel 9:27 (which seems to be a peace deal) as well as the rise of the final King of the South of biblical prophecy (Daniel 11:40-43).

The end is not here, yet (Matthew 24:6), but is getting closer.
