[Last week…] Israel launched an airstrike against a factory inside Syria. Contrary to the usual international brouhaha that usually accompanies an Israeli action against any of its adversaries, the world has been silent.
That’s because everyone knows that Syria was producing chemical weapons at that plant. Apparently, they were also developing precision missiles there.
A former Major General in Israel’s Defense Forces thinks that the lack of response to the strike from Syria and Hezbollah indicates another retaliation is underway. Yaakov Amidror said, “I think the main response will be an acceleration of Iranian efforts to entrench themselves in Syria.”
Recently, Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said, “Everything will be done to prevent the existence of a Shi’ite Corridor from Tehran to Damascus.”
I fear that it’s too little, too late. The corridor exists and it’s already longer than the one Lieberman described.
Hezbollah largely controls Lebanon. Iran controls Hezbollah. Hezbollah is actively fighting in Syria on behalf of Assad. It gets most of its money and all of its high-tech military hardware from Iran.
That means the Shi’ite Corridor already extends from Tehran to the Mediterranean Sea.
Last week, The Wall Street Journal noted, “Iran is using Syria’s civil war, and the battle against ISIS, as cause to gain a permanent military foothold in Syria….”
That puts Iran on Israel’s northern border.
Russia used President Obama’s reluctance to act as an invitation to establish a military presence in Syria. And we know that Russia’s war there against ISIS is allowing its military entrenchment in Syria to quietly solidify.
That puts Russia on Israel’s northern border.
2600 years ago, God revealed to the prophet Ezekiel that in the last days, Iran and Russia would be part of a huge assault on Israel. Today, the actors have taken their places on the stage.
