475283101000100396220YNet News: “Official says that despite stockpile, Israel confident that ‘our deterrence’ would continue to keep Damascus in check, warns that use of chems against Israel ‘wouldn’t be a game-changer, it would be a game-ender.’     

Israel believes Syria has retained caches of combat-ready chemical weapons after giving up raw materials used to produce such munitions under pressure from foreign powers, a senior Israeli official said on Thursday.”

Opinion: It was just a mater of time. The Obama administration’s deal with Vladimir Putin to destroy Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons that were transferred and stored in Syria was a ruse and destined to fail.

Bashar Assad has been embroiled in a violent civil war for 3 years with over 200,000 dead, some from chemical waepons. Since Assad is under fire from the SRF, Al Nusra, and now ISIS, it would be naive to assume that he would be destroying one of the largest chemical and biological stashes in the world.

Once again Israel, the enemy of all three groups, is in the crosshairs.

On August 27, 2013 Bashar Assad said this “If Damascus is attacked, Tel Aviv will become a target and a full-scale war against Syria will essentially justify an attack against Israel,” a senior Syrian army official told Iranian news agency Fars news agency.”

Israel, and specifically Jerusalem, is the prize that every nation in the Middle East covets. That is why Zechariah 12:3 calls it a burdensome stone. The nations that try to take it will be cut to pieces.

Once again, Isaiah 17 is on deck and once again the Obama plan on whether or not to attack Syria is on the table.

Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap. Isaiah 17:1.

Isaiah’s prophecy was only partially fulfilled when the Assyrians defeated the Arameans and overran their capital, Damascus, in 732 BC.  Amos 3:7 tells us “Surely the Lord God does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.”

The Lord does not do things halfway and to prove it Damascus is listed as the world’s oldest inhabited city with 1.7 million people.

And the Lord does not leave us to wonder about the details “Then behold, at eventide, trouble! And before the morning, he is no more.
This is the portion of those who plunder us, And the lot of those who rob us.”

Although Isaiah does not specifically say that the destruction of Damascus is connected to the Psalm 83 attack, Syria is listed as one of the attackers.

World Net Daily: WASHINGTON, D.C. – At a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing Wednesday on Ebola, government health workers were unable to answer specific questions posed by Republicans skeptical of President Obama’s decision to deploy 3,000 U.S. troops to Liberia to combat the disease.

None of the government health witnesses testifying were able to answer basic questions, including how many physicians and nurses would be among the 3,000 troops allocated or what type of protective equipment and training would be employed to prevent infection.

The witnesses explained the State Department was in charge of the military mission, not the Pentagon.

“Who do we call when there is a problem with the troops in Liberia?” asked Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, a physician and a guest on the committee.

“You call USAID,” replied Nancy Lindborg, assistant administrator for the U.S. Agency for International Development, USAID.

Opinion: No preparation, no explanation as to the mission, and absolutely no one can explain why 3000 US soldiers are putting boots on the ground in LIBERIA.

The soldiers are being put in harm’s way in a hot zone while no one can answer if there is adequate protective gear or medicine if the troops become infected.

To assuage the fear of infecting 3000 US army troops, government medical officials default to saying that ‘Ebola is not easily spread’ without adding ‘in its current form’.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, under questioning, argued that while unlikely, it is possible the Ebola virus could mutate in Liberia to become airborne.

I keep trying to fit a potential pandemic into what we know:

  • A massive Ebola outbreak could be apocalyptic – check
  • The Rider on the Pale Horse (Revelation 6:7-8) brings death and disease – check
  • The 4 horsemen of the apocalypse enter after the rapture of the Church  – check
  • We are either near the rapture or this will pass – checkmate

The Times Of Israel: “Free Syrian Army spokesperson says brutal jihadi group quietly making inroads in villages near Golan by offering aid in exchange for services to be named later.

The Islamic State terror group is operating sleeper cells in southern Syria near the border with Israel, a spokesman for the opposition’s Free Syrian Army charged Sunday.

The spokesman, speaking to The Times of Israel on condition of anonymity, as he was not authorized to communicate with Israeli media, said that some of the 6,000 Islamist fighters who fled southward toward the borders with Israel and Jordan in July actually belong to the Islamic State, not to the less extreme Nusra Front as previously believed.”

Opinion: While the nations dither over boots on the ground, Israel will not.
