Debkafile: “There were two unclaimed explosions in Damascus overnight Thursday and early Friday (Jan.12-13) – one at an officers club in Damascus and the second at Mezzeh airport, which Syria alleged was the work of the new Israeli S-35 stealth aircraft firing across the border from a point over the Sea of Galilee.

There was no claim to either of the attacks.

Some unknown hand struck into the heart of that regime in the space of a few hours – not once, but twice. The Assad regime used its standard scapegoat, Israel, for covering up embarrassing and inexplicable occurrences.”

Opinion: Recent headlines concerning the US embassy and the military forces of Russia, Iran, and Turkey’s presence in Syria along with yesterday’s explosions in Damascus, suggests two prophetic events and four outcomes may be near:

  • Damascus is destroyed in one night (Isaiah 17:1, 14)
  • A coalition of 7 Arab nations marches on Israel (Ps. 83:1-8)

It is important to note that the two events were prophesied 250 years apart by two different prophets. There is no hard evidence that they happen together or in that order. Several prophecy scholars listed in Bible prophecy 101 (bottom of chapter 10) have connected the two events in a sequence of prophecies with the following outcomes:

  • Israel is victorious (Psalm 83:9), the war ends, and Israel becomes an exceedingly great army (Ezek. 37:10)
  • Israel dwells securely; the wall of separation comes down (Ezek. 38:11)

As long as Israel is surrounded by neighbors whose only goal is the total destruction of the Jewish state, there is no way for Israel to be living securely enough to take down the wall of separation. The destruction of the surrounding Arab states (Obad. 1:18) leaving Israel the sole owner of the vast oil and gas reserves in the Levant and the Golan Heights could be the motive for the war of Gog and Magog.

Turkish army, like Iraqis, stalled by ISIS pushback

 Barack Obama, End Times, Iraq, ISIS, Russia, Syria, Turkey  Comments Off on Turkish army, like Iraqis, stalled by ISIS pushback
Dec 292016
 

Debkafile: “Wednesday, Dec. 28, hours before US Secretary of State John Kerry was due to deliver a major speech on his vision for the Middle East, Turkey and Russia announced a ceasefire plan going into effect the same night for the whole of Syria, and in all regions, where fighting between pro-government forces and opposition groups were taking place – excepting for terrorist organizations.

Moscow and Ankara assumed the role of guarantors of the process. This accord will be brought for approval before the Syrian peace conference to be convened in the Kazakhstan capital, Astana, this week, attended by Russia, Turkey, Iran, the Syrian government and Syrian opposition groups. The US and Europe were not invited.”

Opinion: Turkey’s wanna-be Sultan Erdogan claims he has pictures, photos and videos that prove the Obama administration is arming ISIS and various terrorist fighters (YPD, PYD.) in Syria.

That ISIS is estimated to have only 4,000 fighters holding off the US-backed 100,000 man Iraqi army in Mosul, and 20-30,000 fighters in Syria causing both Russia and Turkey to want a cease fire, is to say the least, unbelievable.

Could it be the US (who is left out of talks), is fighting ISIS in Iraq and arming them in Syria?

Nah, it can’t be that bad … can it?
