Damascus stands ready if "war is imposed" by Israel as regional tensions rise and hopes for peace fade, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told Lebanese television Wednesday.
"We are faced with an enemy that has shown until this day that it understands nothing but the language of force, and it seems that peace in the region is not in the horizon," Assad said in an interview in Arabic with the Hezbollah-run Al-Manar television late Wednesday.
His statement came amid heightened tension in the region and concern in Lebanon over recent Israeli threats against Shiite militant party Hezbollah and its backers Syria and Iran.
"Damascus" needs to be careful with their rhetoric at this time in history. Very careful. Isaiah 17 is as predictable as any other biblical prophecy - specific, accurate, and highly literal. And it will happen, it is just a matter of time.
In a separate article, this one from the Jerusalem Post, Arab league chief Amr Moussa states: "We must prepare for failure of the peace process"
Arab league chief says the situation "has reached a turning point"; Abbas: No peace deal while e. J'lem occupied; Erdogan calls Israeli policy on east Jerusalem "madness."
“We must prepare for the possibility that the peace process will be a complete failure,” Moussa said. “This is the time to stand up to Israel. We must find alternative options, because the situation appears to have reached a turning point.”
Speaking at the event, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said there would be no peace agreement without ending the occupation of Palestinian land, first and foremost east Jerusalem. He accused Prime Minster Binyamin Netanyahu's government of trying to create a de facto situation in Jerusalem that would torpedo any future peace settlement.
Abbas added that conflict in Jerusalem was dangerous and could ignite the entire Middle East.
Erdogan said that the Israeli position defining the whole of Jerusalem as its united capital was “madness.” Israeli construction in east Jerusalem was completely unjustified, he said.
Once again, we see the real centerpiece of the entire peace process: Jerusalem - as predicted ~ 2,500 years ago. Amazing.
Also of note in this article is the thinly veiled threat contained in Moussa's quotes. If the peace process is considered as a failure, then warfare would predictably ensue - as, according to the enemies of Israel - the only thing preventing full scale war is the ongoing peace process.
Of course, in reality, the main intent of this "peace process" is to coax Israel into giving up as much land as possible before the next invasion, which is inevitable. If the terrorists groups/states were to occupy the Golan Heights, the West Bank and East Jerusalem, any future war against Israel would be far more favorable strategically and militarily to Israel's enemies.
One must always remember that the primary goal in the region remains - as always - the complete destruction of Israel. The so-called peace process is simply a means to create favorable conditions for yet another invasion of Israel.
Watching the Middle East right now is like watching two trains traveling towards each other - on the same track. A collision is inevitable, its just a matter of time before the two trains collide. At some point in the near future we will see Damascus destroyed, presumably during warfare between Israel and some combination of Syria-Lebanon-Hezbollah. Within that general timeframe the world will also see a massive invasion attempted against Israel - an invasion which will be thwarted by God Himself - directly and obviously. We seem to be moving rapidly towards these conflicts. Very rapidly.
