The road to war: Scud knife at Israel's throat
NY Post ^ | April 19, 2010 | BENNY AVNI

In sending Scud missiles to Hezbollah in Lebanon, Syria may trigger a Syrian-Israeli- Lebanese war. You can thank several years of Western "outreach" to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Such a conflict would trash hopes for renewed Palestinian-Israeli negotiations and international sanctions on Iran -- President Obama's regional goals. Yet Obama's penchant for "engagement" has played a vital role in Assad's remarkable transformation from the Mideast's loneliest player to its cockiest.

US sources have confirmed the news broken last week by Israeli President Shimon Peres, who said in Paris that even while Syria talks of peace, it's sending Scuds to Hezbollah. With a range of 435 miles, the missiles are a significant addition to Hezbollah's known arsenal: During the 2006 Lebanon war, the terror group could only hit northern Israeli towns; with the Scuds, it can reach all of Israel's populated areas.

Due to 0bama’s dip-lunacy, it’s his fault — he gave terrorists against Israel the green light. His smacking around of Israel [along with other dip-lunacy] is listed here:

Israel had better be building Arrows as fast as possible, and buying every PAC-3 and THAAD system they can get their hands on.

Sorry the time for negotiation is past, the first one to be launched against Israel, should generate the wholesale invasion, and takeover of Lebanon. The buffer is needed to counter the latest move in the game of lethal chess.

Same applies to Iran, stand down, or face the world, the time for talk, and negotiation is past. We are just going to sit on our duffs, till they get the bomb, and then what? Unfortunately our friend in this effort we have just spat upon.

When Jesus (Jeshua Hammeshiah) comes (back again) to govern this world the right way for the first time in its history, he’s going to bring peace by killing all those who are for war. We all know who they are.

Dunno just when He’s coming, though.

Ready to go Biblical? The people at Prophecy News Watch have been doing the math:

Psalm 83 Conflict on The Horizon? Humanity ought to now heed the war prophecies of the Bible and prepare for war rather than peace in the Middle East! These prophecies are scheduled to occur soon and sequentially each building upon the other. According to scripture the aftermath of these wars will lead to a one world order, construction of a third Jewish Temple, and the arrival of Antichrist.

Note to Israeli special forces:

Don’t scuds have a history of “accidentally” blowing up on the launch pad or in the storage shed? (wink, wink)

First, Syria will be destroyed. Next, Egypt will be hit by a great deluge unlike any flood in recorded history. Egypt will never be a leading nation again. I expect that these events will occur later this summer to coincide with the beginning of the ascendancy of Israel as a world power. Buy lots of popcorn long in advance people. It’s gonna be one HELL of a show.
