By allusion and by critical observances of the unfolding drama now swirling around the current visit of PM Netanyahu, too many corresponding activities of the various world players that may have some (even a limited) role in world developments point to several and multiple event scenarios which, if even just one were to begin momentarily, will have critical applications in Scripture. I am inclined to align with most, if not all, of your 5 points, but from which I have perceived are merely starting points.

From decades of listening to the various prognostications of countless eschatological sources, one thing became clear, unless an egg is hatched, one has a hard time knowing if the hatchling is alive or dead. If a revelation truth is hidden, until it is revealed, one does not know the LORD's intent. Timing is everything and that is what we are told to look for.

As mentioned, each of your scenarios may have a precipitous moment in the incubator, but I'll add that there is still more to Isaiah's nested sayings; that the issue of a greater Syria may still provide a shove to what's happening and you have already mentioned Russia's involvement. I will defer to wait for that egg to crack after ISIS/ISIL/IS has run its course..
