Syria's foreign minister tells Israel that if the two countries go to war, it will be an all out war

Syria's Foreign Minister, Walid al-Moallem, warned Israel recently that in case of war, his country would attack Israel's home front, the cities of the Jewish state and that it would be an all out war between the two nations. Moallem said that Israel must stop being the neighborhood bully.

The Syrian foreign minister's warning came in reaction to a statement made by the Israeli Defense Minister, Ehud Barak, who said, at a conference in Israel, that if an agreement with Syria was not reached the two countries might be dragged into a forceful confrontation that may deteriorate into an all out war.

The verbal confrontation between Israel's defense minister and Syria's foreign minister is setting the stage for, as they say, an all out war between the two countries, which, by the way, is a page out of Bible prophecy.

For the last several years the tensions between Israel and Syria have been rising especially over the issue of the Golan Heights. Syria's President Assad has said that Syria will get the Golan Heights back either diplomatically or militarily. In fact, there is a large number of Syrian troops massed at Israel's northern border near Mount Hermon. There has been some diplomatic activity that gave a hint of negotiations resuming between Israel and Syria.

As of this moment nothing has developed along those lines. This prompted the Israeli defense minister to say if an agreement is not reached, war could break out between the two countries. An immediate reaction came from the Syrian foreign minister who said that if war breaks out, it will be an all out war and that Syrian war planes will take the war to Israel's home front, the cities of the Jewish state.

This report is indeed a page out of Bible prophecy, the prophecy of Daniel who foretold in Daniel 11:40-42 that Syria, in the passage referred to as the King of the North, will attack Israel. In fact, the Syrian attack on Israel will be the first move by an alignment of nations who will follow Syria in an attack on the Jewish state (Daniel 11:43-44, Ezekiel 38).

The verbal confrontation by the Israeli defense minister and the Syrian foreign minister is a page right out of Bible prophecy - Bible prophecy that will be fulfilled.
