An Evil Force From The North
“Israel has foiled attempts to transfer a portion of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s chemical weapons stockpile, which he had committed to destroying, to Hezbollah, according to a senior Hezbollah defector quoted over the weekend by the Kuwaiti newspaper Al Rai.”
This is disturbing because there is a high likelihood some chemical weapons transfers have made it to Hezbollah.Being a terrorist group they will not hesitate to use it against a civilian population. I would include Lebanese civilians not just Israeli civilians.
“While Geert Wilders was being prosecuted in the Netherlands for talking about “fewer Moroccans” during an election campaign, a state-funded watchdog group says that threatening homosexuals with burning, decapitation and slaughter is just fine, so long as it is Muslims who are making those threats, as the Quran tells them that such behavior is mandated.”
Another disturbing story, as Europe becomes more Islamic with each passing day.
“Court rules Islamist ‘Sharia Police’ vigilante patrol is simply exercising ‘freedom of speech’.”
“The Iranian defense minister says Donald Trump’s election has led to “unease,” and that any war with Iran caused by his administration would “destroy” Israel and smaller Gulf states. It comes amid concern Trump will pull out of the nuclear pact agreed with Tehran last year.”
Iran is very nervous about Trump. Be interesting to see if Iran continues to challenge the US Navy in the Persian Gulf.
“Beirut (AFP) – The fall of Aleppo will be a pivotal moment in Syria’s war, boosting regime hopes of regaining control over the entire country and dealing a probable knock-out blow to rebels. Analysts say the virtually inevitable regime victory in Syria’s second city will give the government of President Bashar al-Assad a comfortable upper hand.”
“However, there is another possibility that Ben-Yishai doesn’t mention. That’s the potential of Israeli and Russian aircraft engaging in battle. Russian fighters have already confronted U.S. aircraft attacking ISIS in Syria. If Israeli planes were to accidentally bomb Russian troops, and Russian fighters and SAMs fired at them, and then Israeli called in more fighters to rescue their planes and knock out the SAMs . . . it could be a very, very bad day for all concerned.”
The Bible says at some point in the future Israel will come under attack by a force from the north. It could be Russia or it could be Turkey or perhaps both. Russia has the technology to face Israel but they have a difficult time projecting force beyond her borders. Bombing rebels is one thing but squaring off against an air force that is the most powerful in the Middle East is quite another. Alone, I do not think Russia could do it right now. Something is going to happen to Israel in the future that weakens her to the point where her enemies will consider a land invasion of Israel. That means the IAF will not be able to stop them as they could today. It also means they do not fear a nuclear attack. Only God will stop this evil force from the north.
