Israel and Syria: edging towards the brink

Prophecy Sign:  The coming Middle-East wars and the Israel defences

Bible prophecy warns of a sequence of battles and wars, (perhaps just one long war culminating in Armageddon), that will be fought in the Middle-East in the last days.  Prophecy also indicates that the army of Israel, (the IDF), will be empowered by God to lay a licking on the invading Arab armies.  In fact it would appear that there's not much left of the armies of Allah after Israel gets done with them.

On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place. Zechariah 12:6 NIV

Jacob will be a fire and Joseph a flame; Esau will be stubble, and they will set him on fire and destroy him. There will be no survivors from Esau." The LORD has spoken. Obadiah 1:18 NIV

Israel and Syria: edging towards the brink
Developments in Syria are of great worry for Israel because they have far reaching ramifications well beyond the two countries’ relationship, and also affect relationships with Iran, Lebanon, the Palestinians and the spread of fundamentalism closer to Israeli borders. For a country which used to believe, rightly or wrongly, that it could play a major role in shaping its international surroundings through direct or indirect intervention this is a rude awakening. Suddenly she is left on the side-lines, with nearly no input or influence, regarding a major change which is taking place on her doorstep.
The dilemma for Israel is whether to risk a rapid escalation or potentially facie a better equipped and experienced Hezbollah in a future theater of war. Neither of these options is appealing to Israeli leadership, and for now it would probably prefer to avoid confrontation. The situation is extremely volatile and any localised incident might lead to full blown hostilities reminiscent of the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah.

'IDF More Advanced And Accurate Than Ever'
A senior IDF source discussed the encouraging advancements as well as the budget constraints of the army on Tuesday, exactly a week after an IAF air strike hit Syrian army posts in response to an explosive placed on Israel's border. "All of the national infrastructure is in the IDF's scopes," reported the source. "The army is preparing for the threats of the enemy, and for all scenarios demanding an immediate attack without time to prepare." Speaking about the IDF's capabilities, the source noted "we are armed today with the most effective, advanced and, most importantly, precise weapons, that are much faster than in the past."

    The prophesies of the Bible will come true. In the Middle-East the great war will happen in near future. NATO will be powerless when Russia, China and Muslims alliance start great war in the Middle-East. Jesus Christ will return soon.
