Whole ME is a powder keg and somebody lit a fire underneath. Wonder how long it will smolder before it goes off?

It’s kind of funny that they make it clear that it was the military, not merely Israel launching airstrikes, I think we could have figured out that it was their military who carried it out.

The Associated Press waits 10 paragraphs to mention that the teenager killed was an Israeli Arab, not an Israeli Jew.

I think the fact that Israel protects its Arab citizens just as vigorously as it protects Jewish citizens might be worth mentioning before that.

It should also be noted that hundreds of Syrian citizens cross that border area peacefully each year to obtain free medical care from the Israeli health system.

Such high quality care is not available to Syrians on their own side of the border.

"Or........ Libyan assets delivered to Syria via Benghazi courtesy US State Dept black ops. Thanks to Hillary Obama and Muslim brotherhood pals."

The targets were Syrian government and Iran-related (Hezbollah) positions.

From the article:
"...included a regional military command center...also believed to have carried out several airstrikes on arms shipments it believed to be headed from Syria to Hezbollah militants in neighboring Lebanon..."

The Syrian government has been in cahoots with Iran for a long time. Several years ago in public news, Iranian leaders promised nuclear facilities to the Syrian government. Iran (Shiite) wants to be the boss of the Middle East and rule over the Saudis. Various Sunni Muslim groups are keeping busy for now with trying to keep that from happening.

Many bipartisan political folks have obviously been shrieking against any military action to demolish Iran's nuke facilities and in favor of the Iran-associated Assad government. They expressed the same sentiment toward Lebanese people who want to destroy Israel. Most bipartisan political folks are sympathetic to the most anti-Israel elements in the Middle East.

The nations are positioning along with Iran and Russia against Israel and have been doing so for a long time. Most people in political constituencies are more afraid of oil production and trade being hurt than they are of our One and Only G-d. May the time for all wrongs to be corrected come swiftly.

"You have to wonder if ISIS will eventually reach Israel and will that be Armageddon?"

There are many other remnants of Ham and Japeth influential in many of the nations. The first of them will likely come from nations to the east and northeast of Israel. [Some of the descendants mainly of Japeth--what the Prophets seemed to be saying. Not my guess, and I'm not trying to predict anything.]

Here's other recent news that might be interesting for some.

Maybe, but I haven’t seen China mentioned in any way that I’m aware of (no New Testament here), but here are some names of anti-Israel entities mentioned.

Gog (a leader of Meshech and Tubal)
The land of Magog (son of Japeth, descendants)
Meshech (son of Japeth, descendants of a tribe)
Tubal (son of Japeth, descendants of a tribe)
Persia (Japeth mainly, some of Ham, descendants)
Cush (son of Ham, descendants)
Put (son of Ham, descendants)
Gomer (descendants)
Togarmah (son of Gomer, son of Japeth, descendants including those in the extreme north)

Many of Iberian descent (probably of Rome/Carthage during the Roman Empire, later, after migrating from an area of Turkey as other tribes did) are descended from some of those figures (southern Europe, spread up through the Balkans, Russia and now the U.S.A over time). And not only of Iberian descent but others also. Finding general movements of descendants is a long and difficult task. They’re all over the world.

Most people are descendants to various degrees of most of the figures mentioned above. Is some balance of heritage in each person important maybe? Or philosophies/customs of various nations in the present? Who knows. But most likely, most of the nations of the world will be opposed to Israel. Most of them are and have been so for a long time. What appears to be sure, is that it has to do with the leanings of two kinds of souls.

Maybe it’s mostly about souls. Maybe a future conflict will be worldwide: first around Israel (nature of eventual movement by one kind of soul into leadership in nations), then immediately in the nations (see plague, brother against brother).

It appears that Israel is done playing piece games while death cultists pick off our children. If that lights the fire, then it does.
