The looming war in Syria, onions, and the prophetic clock

The White House seems all to eager to get America into another war. This time Syria. Like the layers of an onion, as each of these wars in the Middle East peals away, their results bring the world closer to an ultimate battle of destruction, perhaps as predicted in ancient prophecies of the Bible. Syria is specifically mentioned by the prophet Isaiah (17:1) "The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap." And like a catch on a sprocket to prevent it from moving backwards, each move toward a prophecy seems to permanently lock forward until the next event. America's role in Middle East policy is exponentially accelerating these events.

On June 4, 2009 in Cairo, Egypt, the man who occupies the Oval Office cast a new vision for American foreign policy. He said, "I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles - principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings." He has fulfilled this promise by partnering with terrorist sponsors such as the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorist groups like al Qaeda to overthrow governments across the Middle East.

The result is a destabilization not seen since the United Nations established Israel as a nation on May 15, 1948, which nearly resulted in another world war. As it has unfolded over the past three years, the White House plan appears to support the establishment of Islam and Sharia law at the expense of human rights and freedom. Couched in democracy, the US has assisted radical Islamists dressed in suits and ties for public acceptance in ousting longstanding governments, setting up elections, and standing by while the most radical of radical Islamists are legitimately elected by the people. The outcome is "democratically" elected Sharia Constitutional governments that are highly volatile against the US and Israel.

Syria is a unique target because it is a vassal state for Iran. The Islamic power struggle between two Sharia-oriented powers--Shiite Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia--looms in the balance. Saudi Arabia controls the most holy of holies for Islam--Mecca. Saudi Arabia has pumped millions upon millions of dollars into American presidents' political coffers. Iran is closely aligned with Russia and China. Israel, which is hated by Saudi Arabia and Iran and only tolerated by Russia and China, is further isolated by the change in US foreign policy and the resulting hostile environment created by it. There is one thing, however, that will unite Saudi Arabia and Iran--their hate of Israel. This onion still has a few layers on it before we reach the end.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
