Syrian President Bashur Assad is ready to talk peace in his second presidential term

Syrian President Bashur Assad, who has begun his second seven-year term, said during an address he delivered before the Syrian parliament that his country is ready to talk peace but not via secretive channels.

He called upon Israeli officials to publicly announce its intentions if indeed the Jewish state desired to make peace with Syria. Assad stressed that any peace negotiations would be based on Israel returning to pre-1967 borders and that such conditions must be made clear by any serious peace envoys.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As Syrian President Bashur Assad begins his second seven-year term as the leader of Syria, talk about peace as the Syrian military prepares for war does set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Since the summer of 2006, the Syrian military had been preparing for a war supposedly with Israel since all the rhetoric has been focused on the so-called defeat of the invincible IDF by the guerrilla-type warfare of Hezbollah. The Syrian military has thousands of their troops at Israel's northern border training in these guerrilla-type combat techniques and threatening to take the Golan Heights by force. The Syrian leader says that his country is ready to talk peace, but it must be based on Israel giving back the Golan Heights before they begin peace negotiations.

The ancient Jewish prophet Daniel revealed some 2,500 years ago that there would be some type of peace in place, Daniel 9:27, before the Syrian would make their move to destroy the Jewish state. Daniel 11:40-45 is the pre-written history of this End Time scenario. The king of the North in this passage is modern-day Syria, who will be the first of a number of nations that will come against Israel as recorded in Ezekiel 38 and Psalm 83.

Talk about peace by Syrian President Bashur Assad as his military prepares for war is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
