LATEST: HAARETZ 7 May 2013: A spokesman for a Palestinian militant group in Syria said Tuesday that it had received a nod from President Bashar Assad’s regime to attack Israel following alleged back-to-back Israeli airstrikes over the weekend. He stressed there is no official note. PFLP-GC has fought alongside government troops against the rebels trying to topple Assad. On Monday evening, two mortar shells  and on Tuesday morning yet another one were fired from Syria to Israel,and landed in an open area near the border fence. The IDF notified UNDOF.

Damascus-5-mayGlobal Res. 5 may 2013 The first missile which hit Jamraya near al-Haviyeh in Reef (outskirts of) Damascus contained uranium substances, a correspondent of Russian television quoted some local sources as saying. Other media outlets had also earlier released similar reports on Israel’s use of radioactive materials in attacks on Syria.

The New York Times 5 May 2013 The US military as well as politicians  have tasted blood: Due to the lack of resistance to the Israeli attacks on Damnascus on 5 May, these people are now discussing to follow Israel´s example in the time to come. They think they can force Assad to resign that way!!!

DEBKAfile 6 May 2013: Israel’s two air force strikes on Syria in three days – the second targeting the emblems of Assad rule overlooking Damascus from Mt. Qassioun – appear to be part of a tactical plan put together by the US, Israel, and two Sunni powers, Turkey and Qatar, to break up the Tehran-Damascus-Beirut radical bloc and eventually force Iran to give up its nuclear bomb aspirations. This is how it will be interpreted by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Bashar Assad and Hassan Nasrallah as they prepare their responses for the Israeli attacks. A third Israeli strike would incur an instantaneous Syrian response, Al Assad warned.

According to our military sources, the Syria would launch a cross-border war of attrition  from Syria and Lebanon by Syrian and Hizballah soldiers posing as Palestinian fighters. Washington is meanwhile expected to follow up on the Israeli operation in Syria by the end of May, early June, with operations ranging from US arms supplies to the Syrian rebels to demolishing Syria’s air force facilities and missile sites by US air strikes from Turkey, Europe and Israel.

The Obama administration made a point of getting these options into print in Monday’s media after saying in answer to a question about the Israeli air strikes: “Israel justifiably has to guard against advance weapons reaching Hizballah.”
Debkafile’s military sources: Since the Syrian rebels are being systematically ground down and falling apart under the crushing weight of the Syrian army backed by Iranian and Hizballah troops and Moscow,  feeding the rebels more weapons may no longer avail. So this would be the less probable of the two options.

Comment
Isaiah
17: 1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap 7 At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel. 9 In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation.
An incursion of many peoples into the Middle East and a massacre is being envisioned. Something like the prophecy of the Masonic guru  Albert Pike.

Damascus has this far not been destroyed in war - and in particular not by the Israelites.  Judgement Day sects will see to it that Damascus will be leveled with the ground. God´s word will be fulfilled - and as always through men. The question is: when?
