Syria is saying that the reason the US attack took place on their air bases was motivated by the American desire to make Israel stronger in the region

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Syria has responded immediately by saying that the United States did this for the purpose of only making Israel stronger but in reality I don’t believe the United States did this only because of Israel. Would you say that’s correct?

DD: I don’t think they did it because of Israel at all Jimmy. We are back to 1917 here. This is what was happening 100 years ago during World War I. There was heavy use of chemical weapons in that horrible war. I think again that fact that the world didn’t take much stronger action the first time these weapons were used is a shame and its about time action is taken but we have progressed into this war to the point where there is a hot war going on. Israel is not involved Israel’s watching this horrific slaughter to the north. 400,000 people killed; this is reflecting the worse wars in history right now. Everybody should be outraged and outraged to the point where he takes the military action. It’s a warning shot across the bow to Syria and to Russia. You keep doing these things and there will be further consequences.

But yes in a way it strengthens Israel that certainly wasn’t the objective. What the Israeli’s are most worried about is not the Syrian chemical weapons although they are worried about those but weapons chemical weapons that have been passed along to Hezbollah that they can fire from other locations especially Lebanon. The Israelis believe they have a huge stockpile of that. Nobody has attempted to disarm them. No UN resolutions have been passed against this militia that’s now so powerful that it’s just a war waiting to happen. Israel is going to be involved but this action by the US is simply a result of Syrian action and Russian action and the response to it.

JD: David Dolan with his Middle East news update and a focus on Syria.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The one fact that we do know for sure is that there are chemical weapons in Syria. At one time in fact Syria had the largest chemical weapons arsenal in the world. We also know that these chemical weapons have been used on the Syrian people. Now these are the absolute facts behind the story.

Another fact is that Bible prophecy says we know that Syria will be a major player in the alignment of nations that will endeavor to wipe Israel off the face of the earth, that’s Daniel 11:40-43. Isaiah 17 also gives us the fact that Damascus Syria will be destroyed sometime in the future. Both of these prophecies will be fulfilled at the beginning of the 7-year tribulation period. My good friend that is a fact.
