Arutz Sheva: Israeli medics were checking on Wednesday (September 10) a 12-year-old Syrian boy who was brought to Ziv Medical Centre in Tzfat (Safed), northern Israel.

A Syrian youth who was also being treated in Israel said anonymously that he has been helping the child and considers him as a brother. “I help him to eat and to drink water and juice. Whatever he asks me to help him with I do for him,” the youth said.

The youth said that the Syrian regime used to teach them that Israel is an enemy, but now he believes that the regime is the enemy and Israel is a friend. “I hope that God will help us and all the people will go back to their homes and this war will stop. That is enough, it has been four years of destruction and killing,” he added.

Opinion: One can only imagine what would happen if the story were reversed. Conflict in the Middle East is a war between brothers. Both Palestinian and Jew share the blood of Abraham, only one side will be held accountable by the God of Abraham:

“For violence against your brother Jacob, Shame shall cover you, And you shall be cut off forever.”

Arutz Sheva: In a new article, Professor Arnon Sofer, head of the Chaikin Chair of Geo-Strategy at the University of Haifa, and Anton Berkovsky discuss the danger of immigration from the turmoil-filled Arab states to Israel.

“Countries in the Middle East are currently in states of internal and external war, pressing the State of Israel to prepare for waves of immigrants from Arab countries to Israeli territory, which may endanger her existence,” they wrote.

Opinion: Israel will have to deal with ISIS if the nations of the west are unwilling. The wave of 13 million Amalekites from Jordan would not only dilute the Jewish majority but would put Israel’s deadliest enemy in their land.

But Prime Minister Netanyahu has already set a precedent; on January 8, 2014 thousands of African migrants who demonstrated outside the Knesset demanding refugee status were deported.

Imagine how world opinion and the mainstream press will turn on Israel should they deny ‘Jordanians’ entry even though they are denied citizenship in Jordan.

The New American: “Members of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Liberty Caucus have become the sole congressional voice openly speaking out against President Obama’s proposed third war in Iraq.

The Washington Post noted on September 11 that “A group of younger libertarian doves sounded unhappy with their colleagues’ embrace of the president’s push for military action, and wondered aloud whether House Republicans were rushing to rally behind a campaign that could turn sour.”

The anti-war Left has faded into insignificance since the election of a president from the Democratic Party, but the anti-war Right has become more vocal and numerous since its halcyon days of the lone calls by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) against war in Iraq.”

Opinion: It began in Libya. The Obama administration’s decision to lead from behind was a banner to despots and dictators that the time is right to rise up.

Now the West wants an end to war. The US and EU have no interest in boots on the ground despite their citizens being slaughtered on video. The nations being run by dictators know that and are exploiting weakness.

It is not time for an end to war. Matthew 24:6 tells us that wars and rumors of wars will be like birth pangs, increasing in frequency and intensity right up to the third world war.

Isaiah 2:1-3 gives an account of  the days after the war of Armageddon:

Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the Lord’s house  (Temple) Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And all nations shall flow to it. 

Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, To the house of the God of Jacob; He (Jesus) will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths. For out of Zion (Israel) shall go forth the law, And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

He shall judge between the nations (final judgment, sheep and goat nations), And rebuke many people; (Here is the end of war) “…  They shall beat their swords into plowshares, And their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, Neither shall they learn war anymore.”

Fox 6 News: “U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday would not say the United States is at war with ISIS, telling CNN in an interview that the administration’s strategy includes “many different things that one doesn’t think of normally in context of war.”

Debkafile: ““We’re going to build the kind of coalition that allows us to lead, but also isn’t entirely dependent on what we do,” said US President Barack Obama at a fundraiser at the home of former AIPAC head Howard Friedman in Baltimore Friday, Sept. 12.

That was one way of defining the turbulent cross-currents set off in the Middle East by the US president’s launch last Wednesday of his strategy for defeating the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant with a broad coalition.

That was also exactly the kind of ambiguous comment, which the governments America is wooing to join the coalition, find so off-putting. The response of 10 Arab and Muslim leaders to Secretary of State John Kerry’s recruitment bid in Jeddah last Thursday, Sept.11, was therefore just as equivocal.”

Opinion: I’m not sure that there is any past coalition to compare this to. The president says he will destroy the non-Islamic Islamic state, appoints a United States general, then asks the rest of the world to provide boots on the ground.

Not one nation is buying it. Britain, our once closest ally, wants no part of the coalition and other key players are clearly not interested.

  • Jordan – Out
  • Turkey – Out
  • Germany – Arms to Kurds only

There are two prophecies to watch for; Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17. Since the prophecies were written 250 years apart by two different prophets, we can’t say for sure they are prophetically connected , but neither has happened and both appear imminent.

In our book, Antichrist: The Search for Amalek we placed Isaiah 17;1,14 during the 7 nation Arab assault on Israel. With the potential ISIS takeover of Assad’s forces, the destruction of Damascus may be near. Here’s why:

If the US-led coalition fails, the only army left with the capability to take out ISIS is the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). An Israeli entry into the fray could be the one common denominator to unite both Sunni and Shia to join Al Baghdadi’s quickly growing army and fulfill the Psalm 83:4 battle cry: “Come let us cut them off from being a nation so that the name of Israel is remembered no more.”

That Damascus will be destroyed from being a city in one night, could be accomplished by Israeli nuclear-tipped cruise missiles on board Dolphin submarines patrolling off the Syrian coast. Together with IDF tactical nuclear missiles from the air, this combination would have the firepower to devastate ISIS in a matter of days.

And the rest of the Arab armies will be like the “whirling dust, Like the chaff before the wind! Psalm 83:7.

The Daily Caller: “The beheadings of American journalists galvanized U.S. public opinion, pushing Obama toward war. The same thing may happen to Cameron.

Hours after the family of a British aid worker held hostage in Syria appealed to his captors to make contact with them, jihadists posted a sickening video online of his beheading. He is the third Western hostage to be murdered by militants from the self-styled Islamic State.”

Opinion: Ecclesiastes 3:3 “a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build.”

What will be the decision? David Cameron, like Barack Obama is being taunted into war. When beheadings become commonplace (Revelation 20:4) we can know that the wars of the latter days are near. But the British are not about to rush into war.

In fact there is a chance that the House of Commons will vote to do very little “A government spokesman said the British Prime Minister would chair an emergency meeting later today of the so-called Cobra committee, a top security panel of ministers and military commanders.”

The Book of Tears is referred to by David in his Psalm 56 verse 4:

“You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book?”

Whether the book referred to is the same book as the Book of Life, or another one, we cannot know. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known” 1 Cor. 13:12.

This post is dedicated to Gila and Doron Tragerman, the parents of  four-year-old Daniel, who was killed on August 24, 2014 just 2 days before the ceasefire between Hamas and Israel. A mortar fired by Hamas struck a car in Nahal Oz, near the Gaza border, sending shrapnel flying into the Tragerman family home.
