Israeli Intelligence Officials in Russia to Stop Missile Sale

Everyone is going nuts over Assad’s statement that he already has received Russia’s sophisticated S-300 anti-aircraft missiles. But when did Assad ever tell the truth?

Israeli intelligence officials are in Russia in a last-ditch attempt to try to stop Moscow from sending S-300 anti-aircraft missiles to Syrian President Bashar Assad, the London Guardian reported Thursday.

Assad has told Lebanese media the he already has received the first shipment of the sophisticated missile system that could down Israeli commercial and military airplanes. However, his credibility is near zero, and some sources have noted that Russia has not yet trained any Syrians to operate the S-300. making it even more unlikely that the missile system could be operable in Syria for weeks, if not months.

Israel has said suggested it would destroy the S-300, but military action probably would be used only if Assad were to try to ship them to Hezbollah.

Russia also risks a serious economic and military defeat if Israel succeeds in disabling the missiles electronically in the event that they arrive in Syria.

A source close to Russia’s defense ministry told Reuters that the Israelis “likely have a million ways to combat the S-300 electronically,” but he questioned their feasibility because they had not been tested in war.

Former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens told Voice of Israel public radio, “I’d be very surprised if the Russians deliver this system. It would become apparent that our air force is capable of besting this system, and that would not make for good advertising.”

Israel has been placed in the middle of a cold war between the United States and Russia, which   desperately is trying to keep Assad in power in order to remain a major power broker in Middle East affairs.

  2. Did you know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today? Despite military losses it has always been populated. Yet Isaiah 17 states that God will take it away from being a city. That has not happened as of yet. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at Isaiah 17. I’m not saying it is, but it looks like it could be. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.
