Syria says Israel will give up the Golan Heights for peace

The Syrian FM is saying that through indirect talks with Israel, Israeli PM Ehud Olmert has agreed to give up the Golan Heights back to the June 4, 1967 borders and that the Syrian government would consider such a move in order to begin serious peace talks with Israel.

The Israeli PM is denying any such commitment has been given and said Syria knows what Israel is ready to do before going to the peace talks; however, Olmert did confirm that indirect talks with Syria are being brokered by Turkey.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As Syria works to retrieved the Golan Heights and purchase military armament from Russia, the stage is being set for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

For over a year, there have been indirect talks going on between Israel and Syria brokered by the Turkish PM Tayip Erdogan. On a visit to Turkey, Israeli PM Ehud Olmert persuaded the Turkish PM to work as a broker to bring about a peace agreement between Israel and Syria and Olmert offered to withdraw from Golan Heights which Erdogan passed along to Syrian President Bashur Assad. What seemed to be a dramatic announcement by the Syrian FM that Israel would indeed give up the Golan Heights, now seems to have been in accordance with these indirect talks. The Syrian announcement has caused an uproar in the body politic of Irael and among Israeli political leaders. The latest survey on the issue revealed that 65 percent of all Israelis are not willing to withdraw from any portion of the Golan Heights and they believe it is inappropriate for PM Olmert to be making such an offer.

The Last Days scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy indicates that such a giveaway, withdrawing from the Golan Heights by Israel would only enhance the sooner fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Daniel 11:40-43 reveals that Syria, referred to as the King of the North, will make an attack against Israel soon after the Rapture of the Church has taken place. According to Bible prophecy, Syria leads the way of an alignment of nations that will attack Israel and Arab and Moslem nations of today are members of that coalition.

Giving up the Golan Heights to Syria will indeed lead to a soon fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
