The Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert Agrees to give the Golan Heights up to Syria for a peace agreement

Reports that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was using a third party to communicate to Syria that Israel would give up the Golan Heights for a peace deal surfaced first on a Damascus based internet site but now has been confirmed by Syrian President Bashar Assad.

It has been learned from President Assad that the Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan had informed the Syrian president of Israeli Prime Minister Olmert's agreement to cede the Golan Heights for a peace agreement.

This diplomatic activity coming at the same time that there had been rumors of Syria massing it's military might for a possible war with Israel and in light of warnings from Iranian President Ahmadinejad for Syria not to give in to the enemies of Islam, who will soon face total destruction.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As Syria and Israel talk peace and the evacuation of the Golan Heights, one must remember that Bible prophecy reveals Syria as the first of the nations that will try and destroy the Jewish state in the last days.

Reports of diplomatic activity between Syria and Israel have recently surfaced; however, the truth be known, Israeli Prime Minister Olmert has been working through a third party for over a year to bring the two Middle East nations to the negotiating table.

That third party, Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan told Syrian President Bashar Assad that Olmert was ready to give up the Golan Heights for a peace deal. That announcement made public has the Israeli Knesset scrambling to pass a law calling for a national referendum to approve such a move, and the latest polls indicate that 80% of the body politic of Israel is opposed to giving up the Golan Heights.

That said, let me remind you of the prophetic scenario that is found in Bible prophecy on this matter. The ancient Jewish prophet Daniel wrote 2500 years ago that Syria, the King of the North in Daniel 11:40, would be the first Middle East nation to attack the Jewish state with a mindset to destroy Israel.

Daniel 11:40-44 lists the other Middle East states that will join Israel in this military mission and it includes the nation of Iran. Diplomatic talks aside, Bible prophecy will indeed be fulfilled.
