U.S. says Syria government was behind chemical weapon attack


Trump speaks at the White House in WashingtonWASHINGTON/UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The United States on Friday blamed the Syrian government for a deadly chemical weapons attack this month and slammed Russia for failing to stop its ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

As the prospect of U.S.-led military action that could lead to confrontation with Russia hung over the Middle East, the White House accused Syria of staging a toxic gas assault on April 7 that killed dozens of people in Douma, near Damascus.

“We have a very high confidence that Syria was responsible and, once again, Russia’s failure to stop them and their continued (lack of action) on this front has been part of the problem,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said…. more

Heightening Mid-East Tensions


By Hal Lindsey

On Saturday, Syria apparently launched another chemical attack against its people — including small children … By the time you read this, the expected US military response may have already begun … Russia has warned that it will shoot down US missiles and even target the US naval vessels that fire the missiles … After the chemical attack, came a mystery air strike against Syria — probably launched by Israel … Russia then began a war of words with Israel, finally showing their long-held but usually camouflaged disdain for the Jewish state … Hamas continues to stir up violent anti-Israel protests along Israel’s Gaza border … Iran says it will soon restart its nuclear program — as if it had ever actually stopped.

And that’s just part of what’s gone on, in only the last few days!

The first big question is whether the Trump Administration can really be sure that Syria launched the chemical attack. Russia and Syria both deny it. That’s what they would say in either case, but thiiming seems suspicious. Only a few days ago, the President said that with ISIS defeated, he wanted to pull US troops out of Syria, and soon. That would seem to be in Syria’s favor. Why rock the boat now… more

Iran, Russia and Turkey meet to plan Syria’s future — without U.S.


Chicago Tribune: The leaders of Iran, Russia and Turkey met Wednesday for high-level talks on ending the Syrian war, cementing their influence on the outcome of the conflict and isolating the United States from the region’s most crucial diplomacy.

The three presidents — Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, Iran’s Hassan Rouhani and Russia’s Vladimir Putin — gathered in the Turkish capital, Ankara, where they pledged to cooperate on reconstruction and aid. They also vowed to protect Syria’s “territorial integrity,” even as all three nations maintain a military presence inside the country.

The leaders called for more support from the international community and emphasized their opposition to “separatist agendas” in Syria… more

Opinion by BIBLE PROPHECY TRACKER: Three amigos are taking over Syria while the US proudly announces a pull-out.

Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal; and I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel.” Ezekiel 39:2

A 7-nation coalition led by Russia, Iran and Turkey will attack from the mountains in the north …

… while a 4 nation alliance, Cush (Sudan), Somalia, Ethiopia and Put (Libya), of North African nations will come up from the south (Ezekiel 38:5 NIV):

Image result for Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets,

It is remarkable that the US is pulling out since Ezekiel 38:13 appears to be be an indication that the US, Britain and Israel’s new friend, Saudi Arabia, will be powerless to stop the invasion:

Ezekiel 38:13 “Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?

  • Sheba and Dedan are cities in Saudi Arabia
  • Merchants of Tarshish represents Spaniards who sailed from Spain to bring back tin (Britain)
  • The lion is the symbol for Britain – young lions may then represent America and colonies. (All three nations are depicted as powerless)

Bible prophecy must be and will be fulfilled perfectly.

Preparing To Take Plunder and Booty From Israel
The Old Testament speaks a lot about destroying the Israelites. When they were obedient to God then God protected them and they won wars, and when they were disobedient to God He handed them over to their enemies. Israel is God’s chosen people therefore many despise and HATE Israel. The bible tells us in Psalm 83:4 They say, “Come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more!” They have been wanting to destroy Israel since the Old Testament. So what … read more

Preparing To Take Plunder and Booty From Israel


Ezekiel 38:12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land. 13 Sheba, Dedan, the merchants of Tarshish, and all their young lions will say to you, ‘Have you come to take plunder? Have you gathered your army to take booty, to carry away silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods, to take great plunder?””

The Old Testament speaks a lot about destroying the Israelites. When they were obedient to God then God protected them and they won wars, and when they were disobedient to God He handed them over to their enemies.

Israel is God’s chosen people therefore many despise and HATE Israel. The bible tells us in Psalm 83:4 They say, “Come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more!”

They have been wanting to destroy Israel since the Old Testament. So what we are witnessing today is nothing new but of old. So, why do they want to wipe Israel out? Where does all this hate come from that began in the Old Testament to the news occurring today? Is it about the land? Is it about a god? Is it about power? What is this all about… more

PRESIDENTS OF IRAN, RUSSIA AND TURKEY PARLEY OVER SYRIA’S FUTURE


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin met in in Ankara on Wednesday for a three-way summit on the Syrian conflict.

The leaders were determined to speed up efforts to ensure “calm on the ground” in Syria, and to protect civilians in “de-escalation areas,” according to a joint statement posted on Rouhani’s presidential website.
The three countries are working together to try to reduce the violence in Syria despite supporting opposing sides in the war. Russia and Iran are Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s strongest backers, while Turkey supports anti-Assad insurgents.

Despite their differences Iran, Russia and Turkey are three of the major powers involved in a conflict whose course has been largely defined by foreign interventions, and their influence could increase further if the United States pulls out… more

TRUMP’S WIN IS THE REICHSTAG FIRE OF INTERNET CENSORSHIP


Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism.

Trump’s election victory was the Reichstag fire of internet censorship. The fury and conspiracy theories that followed were not just about bringing down President Trump, but ending free speech online.

It’s no coincidence that the central conspiracy theory surrounding the 2016 election involves free speech or that the solution is internet censorship. The claim that Russian trolls and bots rigged the election has zero actual evidence behind it. But it’s a convenient tool for not only delegitimizing Trump, but the very idea of a free and open internet where anyone can say anything they choose…. more

Russian Superweapons


By Hal Lindsey

President Trump’s critics seem to have their wish. The Cold War is on again!

Over the last few days, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a series of new superweapons. Among those weapons is what he called an “invincible,” nuclear-capable, intercontinental cruise missile that travels at 20 times the speed of sound. He said, “No defense systems will be able to withstand it.”

According to Russian media, the so-called “Satan 2” can wipe out an area the size of Texas or France. Putin also showed off next-generation ICBMs, underwater drones, and nuclear depth charges. Russia recently announced development of a nuclear-armed torpedo that can take out aircraft carriers as well as coastal cities…. more

Russia to Israel: We will defend you if Iran attacks, but also defend Iran’s presence in Syria


“If Iran attacks Israel, Russia will stand alongside the US to defend Israel,” said Russian ambassador to Israel Alexander Shein at the Munich security conference last week – in a mixed message from Moscow. This assurance is part of the effort Moscow has been making for some time to allay Israel’s concerns and stop the Netanyahu government from agitating against the peril posed by an Iranian military presence in Syria. The Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu carried this message when he paid an unprecedented visit to Jerusalem last October.

DEBKAfile’s sources note, however, that since the Kremlin is broadcasting contradictory messages, Israel’s concerns are far from being allayed. One the one hand, the Russians, knowing they can’t alter Tehran’s implacable aspiration to “wipe Israel off the map,” are promising to defend the Jewish State and even line up with the United States for this purpose. But on the other, Russian policy-makers seem to believe that Israel ought to be satisfied with their guarantee of safety and understand that it has nothing to fear from the Iranian military sitting permanently in its Syrian back yard. That being so, Israel has no reasonable cause to attack Iranian targets in Syria. Therefore, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps may continue to establish bases under their command in Syria.

Moscow’s affirmation of the Iranian presence in Syria as a fact of life is also intended to reach Washington. If Iranian military bases in Syria are no threat to Israel, because of Moscow’s guarantee, neither should it concern the United States… more
