“The [Syrian] regime has used deadly chemical weapons in a number of incidents – most probably sarin gas.
This is the words of the head of the Research Division at IDF Military Intelligence, Brig. Gen. Itai Baron.
He told this at the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University on Tuesday.

I am not a fan of the secular Arab dictator Basher al-Assad. Neither is the IDF.
But if Israel has to chose between two evils ruling in Damascus, Basher is any day better than Islamic Jihad. Israel already has Hizb”Allah at its northern border, and should surely not desire to see Islamic terrorists at the eastern hillsides of the Golan.
Now several Islamic fraction groups fight each other tooth and nails, in an almost not explainable civil war in Syria.
Shihite Hizb”Allah fights to save a secular dictatorship, one of its sponsors. A sponsor who try to survive the terror launched by Salafist Sunny Muslims, supported by Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
The Basher al-Assad regime is supported by the religious minorities of Syria. In a secular Nationalistic dictatorship, the rulers are not too concerned about which “god” you are following.
But if the Islamic forces comes to power, that will be the end of religious diversity in Syria.
During World War I, millions of soldiers in Northern France perished because of Sarin gas. It is a cruel weapon of war. If the Syrian arsenal of gas comes into the hands of Islamic Jihad and al-Qaeda, this gas will be used in a bid to cripple and kill Jews. Than Israel will face greater problems with Syria, than any day under the regimes of the two Assad’s.
May Jesus the Messiah have mercy on all deceived souls. Amen.
A prophecy against Damascus: “See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins.
Syria is an ugly example of the terrible state of the Muslim World. The Bible says Damascus shall be reduced to rubble. There is nothing neither Russia nor the US can do to save her.
