World leaders have wavered on supporting the Syrian rebels and now more so than ever because of the infighting going on in the opposition. Ken Timmerman out of Washington, D.C. tells us that Great Britain has made a decision not to support the rebels in Syria and others may well be falling in line with that decision as well.
Ken Timmerman: People kind of wake up to what's going on inside the rebel camp. It's now split up into two or three actually warring factions, three if you count the Kurds in addition to the Islamists and the Free Syrian Army. Last week, the Islamists murdered two of the leaders of the Free Syrian Army and have threatened to do a lot more and this is going to be frankly an open war inside the rebel camp at the same time that Assad, the Syrian President, and his allies Hezbollah, Iran, and Russia have solidified their alliance. So the opposition is fragmented, fighting amongst itself and the Syrian government is solid. In that context, Britain is taking a second look at their earlier desire to arm the rebels and they are beginning to wonder that now just might not be the time. They are afraid that the weapons will fall into the hands of the Islamists.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
It does not matter whether the Syrian rebels or the Assad government wins in the Syrian civil war, either way, Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
Because of the infighting among the Syrian rebels, the Assad government seems to be winning the civil war in Syria. Bible prophecy reveals that either side can win and the prophecy of the ancient Jewish prophet Daniel will be fulfilled. Syria will attack the Jewish state as the first of many nations align themselves against the Jewish state of Israel to destroy this state, Daniel 11:40 where Syria is referred to as the King of the North. The other nations will come along and join Syria in their efforts to wipe Israel off the face of the earth, Daniel 11:40-43, Ezekiel 38, and Psalm 83.
It doesn't really matter who wins the war in Syria because Bible prophecy will indeed be fulfilled.
