Mess with Israel, and the true and living God has a wide range of choices in how He deals with you.

Several days ago, it was reported that the Syrian army was afflicted with plague. This would make sense during a drought, as rodents would leave their distressed area and go where people had food. When they died, the fleas on them would head to the nearest animal, or person.

I believe the shooting is about to start over there so this is just a case of being a chicken Shi'ite. I believe they are signaling to Israel that they will sit this one out!

Amen.
And I would say this is probably just the first, and most mild choice he offered them.
They’re stiff necked though- they’ll keep pushing and things will escalate.

Very true. Will He deal with 0bama or America? I hope He spares America and deals with 0bama.

0bama is in for some great humiliation, for certain.
