Debkafile: The US is upending its decade-long policy of condemnation for the Assad regime. A senior US official revealed this week. “Although the Biden administration itself may not be welcoming Assad back into the fold with open arms, it has clearly left open the door for others to do so…” and, said the official, “…will not act to prevent or reverse US allies re-engaging with and normalizing Assad’s regime.”
The presence of Iranian and Hizballah forces in Syria, a vital issue of concern to Israel, was not mentioned in the comment. Other Washington sources pointed to the high significance to this move of the Jordanian King Abdullah’s visit to the White House on July 19, although the Israel government and its new heads remained oblivious to what was happening.
In fact, the king was given to understand by President Joe Biden that he would not be held to US sanctions if he went ahead to re-engage with Damascus. Those sanctions were clamped down for the atrocities perpetrated by Bashar Assad against the opposition and civilian population in the civil war. Abdullah lost no time in taking this US U-turn aboard. Just a week later, he welcomed to Amman his first Syrian visitor in years: Defense Minister Gen. Ali Abdullah Ayyoub, a close crony of the Syrian president.
DEBKA’s Mid East sources add that this visit was the signal for Jordanian General Intelligence (CID) to crack down on the Syrian opposition groups which were given sanctuary during the civil war. Their key information site, Syria Direct, was shut down and its editorial staff detained. Read More …
Opinion: Of course. The US move toward Assad, who killed his own people with sarin gas in 2013 and again in 2017, is disturbing but there is more:
- On April 13. 2018 President Donald Trump ordered the United States to launch 59 cruise missiles on a Syrian air base in response to Assad’s sarin gas attacks on civilians
- On March 25, 2019, President Donald Trump signed an executive order recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, angering progressives in the Biden foreign policy team. Undoing every Trump initiative is the #1 goal of the Biden State Department, especially if it compromises Israel’s security
- Syria will need to be in a position of great power as King of the North in the opening salvo of the final battle of Armageddon. Russia will have been defeated and destroyed in a previous war called Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38-19)
“At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him (Antichrist); 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 11:40
The nations are forming alliances that will bring about the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. The US actions to weaken the Jewish state will actually happen in reverse.
