Daniel’s Biblical “King of the North” (NATO) prophecy could be fulfilled in days (and let’s not forget Isaiah 17:1 too!)

UK and US military chiefs are drawing up a list of targets for precision-guided bombs and missiles to strike at the heart of Bashar Al-Assad’s regime. Defence correspondent Ian Drury looks at the options.

WHAT TARGETS WOULD THE COALITION HIT?

The favored option among top brass is for limited Western action using ‘stand-off’ weapons from long distance to disrupt Assad’s ability to carry out chemical attacks and damage his military machine.

Intelligence on targets would come from pilotless drones patrolling the skies above Syria and special forces on the ground.

Military analysts believe an attack could last between 24 and 48 hours and would target key regime installations.

These would include Syria’s integrated air defence system, command and control bunkers, communications hubs, government buildings, missile sites and Assad’s air force.

The dictator’s use of air power has been a huge advantage for the regime, and eliminating or weakening it would tilt the odds toward the rebels.

Other military options are airstrikes on Syrian units believed to be responsible for chemical attacks. Reports last week claimed the chemical weapons were fired by the 155th Brigade of the 4th Armoured Division of the Syrian Army.

This division, which has a military base in a mountain range west of Damascus is under the command of the president’s brother, Maher Assad.

WHAT BASES WOULD BE USED?

US-led strikes would be launched from warships or submarines patrolling in the eastern Mediterranean or Persian Gulf, or from combat aircraft that can fire missiles from hundreds of miles away.

A US Navy battlegroup including four destroyers is already in the eastern Mediterranean and has moved closer to Syria in preparation for action.

They are armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles capable of hitting a target from up to 1,200 miles away. Around 124 of the 18ft-long, £300,000 warheads were fired by US and British forces against Colonel Gaddafi’s forces during the Libyan war.

The US Air Force could also send B-2 stealth bombers to pound Assad’s military installations. Based in Missouri, they can cover the entire world with just one refuelling.

The most expensive aircraft ever – at a cost of £600million each – they are almost invisible to radar and can carry 40,000lbs of bombs.

As well as having F-16 fighter jets and refuelling aircraft based at airfields in the Middle East, the US also has defensive Patriot missile batteries positioned in Jordan, which neighbours Syria.

WHAT FIREPOWER  CAN BRITAIN OFFER?

Despite multi-billion-pound cuts to the defence budge that have seen top brass axe fast jets, warships, spy planes and 30,000 troops, the armed forces can still contribute to an assault on Syria.
The Royal Navy could fire Tomahawk missiles from its nuclear-powered Trafalgar-class submarines – one of which is constantly on patrol in the Middle East.

The subs carry a giant payload of the super-accurate missiles.

Heavily-armed RAF Tornados could in theory fly from RAF Marham in Norfolk to attack targets in Syria – a 4,200 mile round trip – or be deployed to Cyprus to launch bombing raids from there.
Carrying precision-guided Storm Shadow missiles, the air crews could devastate enemy defenses including radar stations, anti-aircraft batteries and supply lines.

    Brutal regime? Rick, respectfully, he is better then the terrorist rebels! Right?

    Russia is probably not going to stand by while this happens.

      The US already has a proxy war against the Russians.

    That is true!! I have known that passage in Daniel 11:40-45 for quite a while. “Bad tidings from the North and the East…” Russia, China, perhaps more. Things will not go well for NATO, and I do not care!! “…no one will help him.” Edom(Israel), Moab(Saudi Arabia), Children of Ammon(Jordan). “ISRAEL??!!!” You say?? Do not hear it from me, read it in their own writings:
    “EDOM IS IN MODERN JEWRY.” The Jewish Ency. 1925 Ed., Vol. 5, Pg. 41.

    “Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew.”
    (1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).

    The Ashkenazis are the descendants of the Khazars veritably a people of the far North, whom have come about the “mountains of Israel” both upon the Middle East, and upon the people of the dispersion of John 7:35 and James 1:1 as it is written in Ezekiel 38.

    Encyclopedia Britannica (15th edition):

    “Khazars, confederation of Turkic and Iranian tribes that established a major commercial empire in the second half of the 6th century, covering the southeastern section of modern European Russia… In the middle of the 8th century the ruling classes adopted Judaism as their religion.”
    “British Israelism” or “Identity” you might be thinking??!! Not hardly, do not sell neither your blood birthright nor your Born Again birthright as Esau did. Did you know God hates??!! Now that might bug your eyes out!!
    “And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.” Malachi 1:4

    “As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.” Romans 9:13

    “But they are God’s chosen people!!” Says you filled with Pharisee leaven!!
    But does Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 say so??!!!

    “I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” Revelation 2:9

    “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.” Revelation 3:9

    If you think I am wrong, then maybe you need to read in 1 John 2:22-23 and see what an “Anti-Christ” is defined as.

    So ask yourself, if the king of the north “shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain”(Daniel 11:45), who is living in that area that will let him do so?

      I love your cherry picking verses and quoting secular “Jews” who desire to distance themselves from the Orthodox,hoping to find a way to dull their influence in Israeli society.. Somehow you seem to ignore Ezekiel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel and the words of Jesus Himself about the restoration of Israel and God’s promises to protect and restore His people in the Last Days. Yes God is against those who call themselves Jews but do not acknowledge Him or mix their religion with pagan practices…but He is also against those who call themselves Christians and do the same and He will curse those who curse Israel…that He also promised. By the way check out Google on who Edom really is you might be surprised to find that they might be the ancestors of the modern day “Palestinians”. Please hang your hate at the door or you may discover what “synagogue” you actually belong to. Praying for you to find truth, like the Jewish Messiah says “it will set you free”.

      • Thomas

        I have quoted “Jewish” writings. Passing out New Testaments on Jerusalem streets will get you put in jail, but they definitely do not have a problem allow gay-pride parades. They blaspheme in calling themselves “Israel,” Jacob’s name. Jacob and Esau were twins, not Jacob and Ishmael. I see you have “cherry-picked” one verse or other quotation. Yet you have the audacity to accuse me of “hating” while hypocritically hating on me; you sure have no intention of hanging up your hate. Who and what were the main people of Jesus’ rebuke as in Matthew 23? Who did Jesus say “you are of your father the devil…” in John 8:44? Hint: they claimed their father was Abraham. Who stone Stephen the martyr? Who did the disciples hide for fear of after Jesus’ death?
        You say “Jews are Israelites??!!” The Jews do not think so, let them tell you:

        “Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew.”
        (1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).
        You can hang your hate, your ignorance, and your own stupidity up at the door. I have already shown that John 7:35 and James 1:1 is Biblical proof that the Israel “multitude of nations” Genesis 48-49 are the European nations, the USA, and Canada. Diasphora means dispersion or Israelites in other nations. Take that yourself HATER ANTI-SEMITE!!

        • Linda Fowler

          I agree. People forget that only two of the the twelve tribes remained in the area. I have a relative that has worked relentlessly over the years to trace our ancestry and on my maternal side through England and the far northwest part of Germany (formerly a part of France), we can be traced back to both Ephraim and Manasseh. So…..some haters should beware that they might be from one of those tribes

          • Thomas

            “James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.” James 1:1

            That is not true that two of the twelve tribes remained in Judea, wherein all were referred to as “Jews” All people that live in Texas, but not all Texans are White.

            The Old Testament meaning of the word “Jew:”
            3064 Yhuwdiy yeh-hoo-dee’ patronymically from 3063; a Jehudite (i.e. Judaite or Jew), or descendant of Jehudah (i.e. Judah):–Jew.

            Here we see that Israelite descent is determined “patronymically.” or through the FATHER, not the mother, hence the statement in the 1980 Jewish Almanac. Also a Jew in this definition is a descendant of Jacob of the Tribe of Judah.

            The New Testament meaning of the word “Jew”

            2453. Ioudaios ee-oo-dah’-yos from 2448 (in the sense of 2455 as a country); Judaean.. i.e. belonging to Jehudah:–Jew(-ess), of Judaea.

            Here the meaning in the NT context of someone from the Roman Province of Judea, which is the most common meaning, or in the context of Revelation 2:9 & 3:9 such to say “those that say they are of the Tribe of Judah or Israelites.”

            My Patriarchal Lineage traces to Germany and France, and to both the Tribe of Judah. Hence I took a peculiar interest in exactly what the question was with Jews in the modern contemporary term.

            Diaspora dee-as-por-ah’ from 1289; dispersion, i.e. (specially and concretely) the (converted) Israelite resident in Gentile countries:–(which are) scattered (abroad).
            Yes, the hater that responded to me earlier might be ignorant of his own heritage, that is for him to find out. But nonetheless, my substantiation is hardly based on “hate” of anything of the hate of evil. Say nothing about “cherry picking,” there is an orchard of information.

          • Terry Bridges

            No reply to the part about prophecy that involves a restored Israel including the lost ten tribes? How is it that I am a hater? What do I hate? My wife is a Messianic Jew and I have studied Hebrew Roots for 30 years and lead a Messianic Worship congregation. We love Israel and support her and all of the sons of Abraham through the promise. What exactly is your point in all the lengthy discourse you provide? God knows who is a true son of Abraham….are you feeling insecure or what, I don’t understand. These are the last days and we all need to stand together and stand with those whom God chooses. Your tone is very agitated and seems somewhat belligerant, that is why I said check the hate at the door. Anyway if you believe that Jesus is the Messiah, Son of the Father, the Second Person of the Trinity, virgin born, died for our sins, rose again and is coming again for His church and then to restore and fulfill His promise to rule as the King from Jerusalem as the Son of David for 1.000 years after which the end will come followed by a new heaven and earth, you are my brother and we will meet with Him in the air very soon and all this debate and “endless controversy” will cease…thank God.

            All I am saying is that there are Israelites that are Christians. The Jews would not even have a nation if it were not for the “multitude of nations” formed out of the dispersion of the entire 12 Tribes, not a “lost 10.” The Pilgrims knew themselves to be the descendants of the House of Israel. I have met numerous “Jews” in my life that were quite hostile against Christianity, but I managed even then to get along with them despite. Granted there are things about many denominations and dogmas that I cannot stand. I have studied much about the many religions of the world, understanding the errors and oppressions of organized constructs, but have reserved my own understandings of their writings in compare and contrast to the Bible. I find the Sumerian Tablets especially interesting and insightful in understanding the Book of Genesis, and then also the rest of Bible and likewise inspired writings such as The Book of Enoch. And yes being that I am what I am in terms of ethnic descent, I took an interest in examining the issue that I have presented the previously mentioned facts. No I am not feeling insecure, but have no problem making it clear that I am hardly a pushover, and definitely not televangelist fed; and will push back. I took your tone in the same way that you perceived mine. I see that such is a matter of what one has learned, and how one has learned. Different schools of thought are bound to have friction, but there is of course common ground. Granted you have a ministry to the Jews, because they need to hear it. I have baptized even Jews for remission of sins in what I do for a living.
            2 Peter 3:9 NASB

            “The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.”
            Shalom

            Any restoration must be in Jesus He was the promised Messiah in fulfilment of the promise given to Abraham

            God is not concerned about the Real estate (the Land), but rather the state of the heart in Christ Jesus… No one gets a second chance when the last trump blows Rev11:18
            It is a false doctrine that the Jews are God’s elect!

            “For the Son of man will send forth His angels and they will gather out of His Kingdom all stumbling blocks and those who commit lawlessness Mat13:41-43
            The church Heb12:23,24 are the elect out of His kingdom which He (Jesus) will present to the Father 1Cor15:24

          • Thomas

            I know that is right on!! The 144,000 Sealed are Israelite Christians who form the Church: those who know “the song” only they can learn: Revelation 14:3.

        Truth is hate to those who hate the Truth.

    The christian element that support Zionism ignore the warning of Apostle Paul “Beware of the false circumcision” Phil3:2

    This support for the Zionist state of Israel is at the very centre of what is the Luciferian agenda unfolding before our very eyes.

    As always those who see beyond the enemies deceit get labelled anti-semite or Cursed by God by those supporters of Israel.
    How ironic that we be accused by those who support the Zionist antichrists.

    This was planned quite awhile ago. They will demonize Assad because the elite want the Muslim Brotherhood to be in control (Saudi’s.) Remember there are two Muslim groups..We are seeing Scripture play out before our very eyes. Scripture says that Damascas will be destroyed/gone.. I am thankful to the Jewish people for preserving G-d’s word. I am thankful to the Jewish disciples that took the truth of the Hebrew Gospels to the world. I am thankful because I heard their message thru Ruach HaKodesh/HS and I am grafted into Israel and to know our Messiah Yeshua will be returning soon to rule and reign as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. The G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is in full control.
