Iran's proxy Syria

Reader comment on item: What To Do in Syria

Submitted by Tom (United States), Apr 14, 2013 at 17:28

You're right about keeping the battle going on between Assad's forces and the rebels whom both groups are monsters but I feel like the Sunni Arabs are destined to win.

The Jewish prophecy about the destruction of Damascus and there being only a remnant left (Isaiah 17:1-3) seems to fit a long drawn out war or a short war with massive destruction.

Its seems like the various factions of the Israeli government will have respect for its maker but God warns of desolation. (Isaiah 17:7-11) And God states many nations (Arab likely) will come against Israel and then will flee. (Isaiah 17:13) This sounds like a Sunni Arab attack upon Israel.

The Israeli population should prepare for this war. Whoever controls Damascus in the future will have control over the chemical weapons plant located in downtown Damascus. As of last December 2012 only 60% of Israelis have gas masks and only 30% have a room which could be sealed should a chemical weapons attack occur. Last December 2012 the Russians sent Assad over 3,000,000 gas masks enough gas masks to protect Assad's Alawite tribe.

The Jews in Israel should secure gas masks to protect the entire population while their enemies are killing off each other in Syria. The war will come to a close someday with a terrorist victory and their warrior chants to invade Israel. Its hard not to believe the terrorist would not use chemical weapons first before the attack so the Jewish people should be ready.

American Christians send millions of dollars in food aid for Israel's poor. The Jewish rabbi working with Christian organizations should appeal for gas masks also. If Assad has enough gas masks to protect his Alawite tribe, Israel should have enough gas masks to protect its own people.

American Christian aid to Israel depends on how good the American economy is going and America is going bankrupt under Obama's reign. The Iron Dome defense system isn't 100% effective against all the missiles which could be hitting Israel at once so for double protection each and every Israeli should own a gas masks and shelters should be expanded by the Israeli government.
