Syrian Warns and Warns and Warns It Will Retaliate

One basic difference between Israel and Arab nations: The Jews warn and warn and warn and finally strike when there is not choice. Arabs attack and attack until there is not choice but to warn.
Syrian president Bashar al-Assad's grandfather was fearful of a Muslim massacre and appreciated Zionism.

A Syrian official warned Israel on Sunday that the bombing of its “military research facility” [Read: missiles from Iran] is a “declaration of war,” and Damascus will retaliate whenever it wants.

The bombing of the missiles, which were destined for Hezbollah as a way station before their final explosive stop deep inside Israel, “opens the door to all possibilities,” said Syrian Information Minister Amran a-Zoabi.

Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al Mekdad told CNN the attack is is an act of war and an outcome of Israel’s allegedly working with terrorists in Syria.

Israel is taking all precautions, such deploying the Iron Dome anti-missile system in the north.

But before everyone in Israel runs for the bomb shelters, it is worthwhile remembering that Israel in 2007 staged an aerial attack on a nuclear reactor that was under construction with the help of North Korean scientists.

Syria did not react.

Four months ago, Israel bombed a convoy of missiles on its way from Damascus to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Syria’s ambassador to Lebanon, Ali Abdul-Karim Ali, said Damascus “has the option and the capacity to surprise in retaliation.” He warned that Syria will retaliate in the way it chooses and when it chooses.

It sill is choosing.

Israel struck again early Friday morning, bombing Fateh-110 missiles that had been sent to Syria by Iran and were being stored at an airport in Damascus.

Syria did not react.

And again on Sunday morning Israel bombed again.

This time, Syria retaliated by sending a complaint to the United Nations.

Assad has been described by Pulitzer Prize winner Joel Brinkley as “the most dangerous man in the world,” a far more accurate description than that of then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who termed him a “reformer” two months after the rebellion began in the form of peaceful demonstrations.

Given his position of “kill or be killed,” it would not be wise to pooh-pooh the possibility of his going totally berserk and attacking Israel.

And given Israel’s strikes to keep Hezbollah from accessing “game-changer” long-range missiles aimed south of the border, Assad would be wise to run for a very deeply buried bomb shelter if he “retaliates.”

  1. IS 17: 14 And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us. (Damascus and Syria). I emplore you to read IS 17! I noticed how familiar the situation in the middle east looks compared to what the Bible states will happen in Isaiah 17. 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 that short chapter. 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.

    The similarities and goals between Assad and Obama are striking.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Oh come on.. This idiot Assad warning Israel? At least they have the balls to confront these Islamic puppet states and lay down the answer in force for their sucking up to the radical Iranian as*holes. Unfortunately, they are not bombing the living crap out of the source (Iran) because the soft liberal American Government would rather "chat" with these morons and think they will become civilized rather than the Islamic Terrorists that they are.. You go Israel, and hopefully the American public who support you can persuade the cream puffs running our country to back you up in eliminating the planet of these radical pieces of crap once and for all! Kiss my A*s you liberal do gooders, and one can only hope that someday these Islamic scum are shoving their Koran up your A*s..then we will see what you think then!
