Assad warns of 'earthquake' if West intervenes in Syria"
Any problem in Syria will burn whole region," Syrian president tells 'Sunday Telegraph'
Western powers risk causing an "earthquake" that would burn the Middle East if they intervened in Syria, President Bashar Assad said in an interview with Britain's Sunday Telegraph newspaper.
"Syria is the hub now in this region. It is the fault line, and if you play with the ground you will cause an earthquake," he said.
"Any problem in Syria will burn the whole region. If the plan is to divide Syria, that is to divide the whole region," Assad said.
Assad's comments came as Arab ministers said on Friday they had sent an urgent message calling on him to end seven months of violence against civilians following the killing of 40 pro-democracy demonstrators by Syrian forces.
The prophetic implications are obvious. Something will trigger the battles leading to Isaiah 17 and ultimately Gog-MaGog.
The region continues to heat up by the day - soon enough the powder keg will be ignited.
