Debkafile: Syrian President Bashar Assadevidently disinclined to be left out in the cold by the Arab world’s pursuit of peace with Israel, has put out his own feelers, according to the influential Saudi Sharq al-Awsat of Sunday, Sept. 27.

He is considering climbing on the bandwagon driven by the Trump administration, whose peace diplomacy brought about United Arab Emirates and Bahrain normalization deals with the Jewish state. More Arab governments, including Sudan, are heading in the same direction. Latterly, as DEBKAfile reported this week, Lebanon and Israel have also been led to the table to discuss their longstanding maritime and land border disputes.

Opinion: This is getting downright contagious.

Syria, as told by the prophet Daniel, was the original King of the North whose evil king Antiochus was a precursor to the final Antichrist.

“And in his place shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give the honor of royalty; but he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue.” Daniel 11:21

By 188 BC, Syria had already been incorporated into the Seleucid Empire. Antiochus, son of the Persian-born Antiochus the Great, ruled from 175 BC to 164 BC.

Antiochus regarded himself as Zeus, the Greek god; hence, his self-given title Epiphanes, meaning “manifestation of God” or “illustrious one”, who committed the first abomination by slaughtering a pig on the holy altar, and erecting a statue of Zeus in the temple.

His diabolical plan was to Hellenize Israel and thereby eradicate Judaism.

Fast forward to a future unfulfilled prophecy from Isaiah 17:1,4

“A message concerning Damascus. Observe! Damascus is about to be undone as a city.”

v.14: “At evening tide, lo, terror! Before morning they are gone. Such is the fate of those who pillage us and the lot of those who plunder us.”

Damascus, the capital of Syria, is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, population approximately 1.7 million.

Although Damascus was conquered many times in history and the city was partially destroyed in 732 BC when the Assyrians defeated the Armenians, the city was never totally destroyed.

Fast forward again to the final battle of the global war of Armageddon

“At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through.” Daniel 11:41

The time of the end refers the end of the time of the Gentiles. The him that is attacked is the Western alliance of Antichrist.

The King of the South has always been referred to as Egypt, but at this point it likely refers to an African coalition that is still able to make war after the Gog Magog invasion. The King of the North has always been referred to as Syria, but at this point it likely includes all the nations north of Israel that are still able to make war after the Gog Magog invasion.

Bashar Assad’s peace overture, like the rest, will fail.
