War in Syria: Russia’s 'rustbucket' military delivers a hi-tech shock to West and Israel

Prophecy Sign:  The Gog/Magog alliance - Russia, (Land of Rosh/Magog)


Russia is slowly wrapping its tentacles around the Middle-East.....or is it the tentacles of the Middle-East wrapping themselves around the Russian Bear?  This tightening hold may be the hook that draws the Russians into a future conflict with the Jewish State, (the war of Gog/Magog).

The word of the Lord came to me:  “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal; prophesy against him and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal.  I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army—your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords.  Ezekiel 38:1-4 NIV

War in Syria: Russia’s 'rustbucket' military delivers a hi-tech shock to West and Israel
It is not just NATO member states watching the Russians with concern. Israel, too, sees the build-up of Russian weaponry across its northern border in Syria and wonders where it will all end. Their apprehension is that the advanced equipment already in situ in the Middle East will end up with Iran, viewed as an existential threat to the Jewish state, or with other Arab countries, thus eroding the air superiority that is Israel’s primary advantage over its neighbours.
One of the most senior analysts in Israeli military intelligence told The Independent in Tel Aviv last week: “Anyone who wants anything done in this region is beating a path to Moscow.” Mr. Putin has relished pointing out the significance of the West seeing “for the first time that these weapons do exist, that they are of high quality, and that we have well-trained people who can put them to effective use. They have now seen, too, that Russia is ready to use them if this is in the interest of our country and our people.”
