Isaiah 17:1 Coming soon?
{snippet from newsletter}

While Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas puts on a show of playing nice with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the sake of the Obama Administration, the Palestinian ambassador to Lebanon this month assured the Arab world that the current negotiations are just part of a larger plan to delegitimize Israel.

The Palestinian daily newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida reported that on September 9, Ambassador Abdullah Abdullah insisted that “the Palestinian-Israeli negotiations…are not a goal, but rather another stage in the Palestinian struggle… to isolate Israel, to tighten the noose on it, to threaten its legitimacy, and to present it as a rebellious, racist state.”

Certainly, I do not believe that Hamas desires in any way to make peace with Israel. I have always believed that the goal of the Islamic world has always been to get back as much land as possible through peace negotiations before mounting a major attack against Israel. One has to wonder if Hamas and other terrorist groups such as Hezbollah are finally getting on the same page as the Palestinians in their quest to regain lost territory? There is no doubt that with Hamas cooperating with the US in peace talks this could ultimately place Israel in a no-win situation where they are forced to negotiate with terrorist organizations. A refusal to participate in peace talks which could include Hamas would bring world condemnation followed by sanctions and further isolation.

Israel Today

The Washington Institute for Near East Policy asserted that Israel was preparing for a multi-front war that could result in the occupation of most or all of the Gaza Strip. The report, by former Defense Department official Jeffrey White, said Israel's military would seek to improve its performance over that of the war against Hamas in 2009.
"The IDF [Israel Defense Forces] would be occupying some, perhaps substantial, parts of Lebanon and potentially all of Gaza," the report, titled "If War Comes: Israel vs. Hizbullah and its Allies," said.

The report envisioned Israel facing a coalition of such Iranian proxies as Hamas and Hizbullah as well as Syria. White said the war could erupt between Israel and Hizbullah but could soon include Hamas, estimated to have 5,000 missiles and rockets.

"At the same time, no one should be surprised if a new war in the north included a Gaza excursion," the report, released on Sept. 17, said. "Hamas could decide to enter the conflict in serious fashion, employing heavy rocket fire and long-range weapons. Alternatively, Israel could decide to finish the job begun with Operation Cast Lead in 2008–2009."

"Hamas — assuming it became involved directly — would lose its military power in Gaza and at least some of its political power," the report said.

The report said Israel's military strategy would employ massive air and naval power to destroy Hizbullah's missile and rocket network. White said Israel was expected to seek to deter Syria from joining the war.

World Tribune

This is likely the scenario that will play out in the coming future. The Bible says in Isaiah 17:1, speaking of the future of Syria regarding "the burden of Damascus, " Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap." This prophecy has yet to be fulfilled and I believe is still future. Some have declared they believe it will be a war that will ultimately serve as a catalyst that will bring peace. Personally, I believe peace will come before war but I certainly would not rule out this scenario playing out in the near future.

Whether this prophecy will play out during the Battle of Gog and Magog or some other separate war only the Lord knows for sure. But the prophetic winds seem to be blowing towards a sooner than later epic Middle East battle.

You didn't quote the whole article, did you?

Three lost years I've been crying here,
I'm over, I'm over, I'm over, I'm broken...
