Israel Launching Attacks Against Syria


Israel has launched attacks against Syria:

ISRAELI troops have fired tank shells into Syria, confirming “direct hits” on the source of a mortar round that struck the Golan Heights as tensions flared along the ceasefire line. The exchange marked the second straight day that Israeli troops have been drawn into the Syrian conflict and came just hours after an appeal for restraint from all sides by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

On Sunday, Israeli troops fired a warning shot across the UN-monitored ceasefire line in response to Syrian fire, in the first instance of Israeli fire directed at the Syrian military in the Golan Heights since the 1973 war.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu reacted Monday to Syrian shells that landed in the Golan Heights, asserting that Israel “will not allow anyone to breach our borders or to fire on our citizens.”

Will this action get out of control?

I remain convinced that a regional war in the Middle East will happen and could get out of control, especially presuming Iran, as well as Syria, is involved.  Things are not going to go the way that Syria’s President Assad currently thinks they will.

Wall Street Journal – ‎12 November 2012

Two Arab organizations offered initial blessings Monday to a newly formed Syrian opposition umbrella group, marking a swift international debut for the group one day after it was founded in Doha, Qatar.

In Cairo, the 22-member Arab League acknowledged the new National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces as the legal representative and main interlocutor for Syria’s opposition. The six-member Gulf Cooperation Council recognized it as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people.

The Bible suggests that Syria will be involved in a confederation of North African and Middle Eastern nations (Ezekiel 30:1-8; Psalm 83:4-8) who will support a leader that the Bible refers to as the final King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43).  Since the Muslim Brotherhood wants a similar confederation, I have long believed that Syria will align with it or a group like it–and since Syria’s President is opposed to that, he will have to go or change his views. But since he does not wish to do either, Syria’s President Assad may decide to engage in an attack with Israel, which is more likely to result in the destruction of Damascus, as well as a change in the Islamic world to unite closer together behind a group like the Muslim Brotherhood.  And Assad’s resistance to what is going on in his country and with Israel may lead to the destruction of Syria’s capital Damascus as the Bible predicts (Isaiah 17:1).

Of course, according to the Bible, the King of the South (Daniel 11:40) will rise up and we will see if this happens sometime after a conflict with Iran and Syria.   The Bible also seems to tell of a peace deal in the Middle East in Daniel 9:27 which needs to happen–and it may well take a regional war for such a deal to take place.

With the end of 6,000 years of human rule coming closer, and the apparent peace deal in Daniel 9:27 not yet confirmed, it may be that a war involving Israel will be soon. Israel has been planning for the likelihood of an Iranian & Syrian regional war for some time.  We will see.
