IsraelNavyJPost: “Advanced weaponry, much of it supplied by Iran, is flowing into Syria and Lebanon, a senior Israel Navy source warned on Sunday.

The Navy is spending a large chunk of its operational time dealing with advanced weapon smuggling, according to the source, who added, “Such weapons pose a challenge to all Western navies in the area.”

“What happens in Syria, happens in Lebanon [in terms of weapons availability], and vice versa. I’ll go a step further and say that everything that happens in Iran can end up in Syria, which can then end up in Lebanon,” the source stated. “In the event of war with Hezbollah in Lebanon, I’m not sure Syria will remain on the sidelines. Hezbollah assists the Assad regime, and the help is mutual.”

Opinion: Correct. Psalm 83:1-8 is clear that one day, possibly very soon, Syria (Assyria) and Northern Iraq will join in with Lebanon (inhabitants of Tyre) in an Arab assault on Israel with the battle cry “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”

But that is not all, Syria and Lebanon will have assistance:

  • The tents of Edom – Palestinians of the West Bank
  • The Ishmaelites – Saudi Arabia
  • Moab and the Hagrites – Central Jordan and Egypt
  • Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek – Northern Lebanon, Northern Jordan, Sinai 
  • Philistia  – Palestinians of Gaza

 Syria’s capital city, Damascus, is specifically called out by the prophet Isaiah for destruction:

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

Isaiah 17:14 “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.”

Mid East Eye: “Jordanian authorities announced Monday that the kingdom would be taking part in the US-funded “train and equip” programme to help vetted Syrians battle Islamic State (IS) militants.

“Jordan and other nations in the coalition and in the region will jointly train … Syrian tribes to fight against the terrorist bands,” government spokesman Mohammad al-Momani told press at a news conference.

The Pentagon-run programme has been in the works since June 2014, but Jordan’s role has been shrouded in secrecy as key details have been worked out. At the top of the list: which fighters will take part, how they will be vetted, and whether their mission will include taking on forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, or focusing efforts on IS militants.

Vason’s thoughts:
So many countries funding different tribal sects, terrorist groups, and ME governments in a futile attempt to do what exactly? Come out ahead?

This sectarian arms race is just like the Gloucester Cheese Race. Participants chase a giant piece of cheese down a deadly steep hill and nobody ever catches the elusive cheese. And some people are left badly broken when it all calms down.

The Jerusalem Post: “In private talks with European sources, the Saudis have expressed their willingness to cooperate with Israel on Iran, including use of Saudi air space by the IDF for a possible air strike, according to a report by Channel 2.

Cooperation with Saudi Arabia would not come free, however. According to the report, the Saudi officials said they would need to see progress between Israelis and Palestinians before having enough legitimacy to allow Israel to use their air space.”

Opinion: Extortion. Give up land, move 500,000 Jewish families out of the West Bank, create a Jew-free corridor between the West Bank and Gaza  and permit 5 million Jordanians the right of return. All that so the Saudis, who are scared silly of the Iranians, will give Israel airspace. What a deal.

Other Sunni states, such as, Egypt, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates say that a nuclear deal allowing Iran to keep its nuclear-producing technologies would likely drive nations in the region to develop nuclear capabilities in order to match those of Iran’s.

A nuclear arms race will break out in the region.

Meanwhile, John Kerry and the P5+1 nations are absolutely, positively certain that Iran will not get a nuclear weapon despite having said the same about North Korea until the hermit kingdom surprised the world with a nuclear test in 2006.

So what does the Bible have to say?

The best clues of a nuclear Iran are found in Ezekiel’s war of Gog and Magog. The alliance of 7 nations will advance on the mountains of Israel led by Russia, Iran, and Turkey. The alliance will fall by divine intervention and Ezekiel says this:

  1. Ezekiel 39:6 “I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in safety in the coastlands”
  2. Ezekiel 39:9 “Then those who live in the towns of Israel will go out and use the weapons for fuel and burn them up—the small and large shields, the bows and arrows, the war clubs and spears. For seven years they will use them for fuel”
  3. Ezekiel 39:12 “For seven months the Israelites will be burying them in order to cleanse the land”

All three verses suggest nuclear warfare:

  1. Fire on Russia/coast lands (other members of the alliance) – indicates nuclear exchange
  2. 7 years worth of fuel from weapons indicates nuclear reactors
  3. Burying the dead for 7 months suggests nuclear contamination

3 World Leaders Emerge To Fight ISIS

Joel Rosenberg: “Amidst President Obama’s repeated moves to withdraw American military power and influence from the Middle East and “pivot” to Asia, three regional leaders in the epicenter are forming a quiet, unexpected but fiercely determined alliance. Why? To protect their people against two existential threats, one posed by the Shia Radical Islamists of Iran, the other posed by the Sunni Radical Islamists of ISIS.
