Regarding The Israeli Raids
May 6th, 2013 abeer

The Local Coordination Committees in Syria (LCC) deplores the Israeli raids on Syrian territory and condemns ongoing violations of the Syrian people's national sovereignty.

The LCC confirms that the Syrian regime's reckless behavior has turned Syria into a state of chaos, and the regime alone bears full responsibility for the outcome of a country that has become a playground in which regional and international powers settle their scores at the expense of the Syrian people. It is important to remember that this regime has never served as a resistance force; rather, the regime has protected Israel over the past decades. The game of "resistance" has only been used to impose repression, tyranny, and bullying of the domestic population under the pretext of external danger.

The Israeli raids targeted military installations and ammunition depots, which had been used to kill unarmed civilians -- the sons and daughters of Syria. Nonetheless, the raids can only be seen in the context of serving Israeli interests, which align in many ways with those of the Syrian regime. The regime is trying to force the country into a sectarian war and to become a divided state -- a condition that has long been a strategic goal for Israel.

Syria crisis: 'Strong evidence' of chemical attacks, in Saraqeb.

What the Bible says about Syria and Damascus?
[Amos 1:3-10] Damascus, Gaza and Lebanon Tyre. 

Thus says the LORD,
      “For three transgressions of Damascus and for four
      I will not revoke its punishment,
      Because they threshed Gilead with implements of sharp iron.
4      “So I will send fire upon the house of Hazael
      And it will consume the citadels of Ben-hadad.
5      “I will also break the gate bar of Damascus,
      And cut off the inhabitant from the valley of Aven,
      And him who holds the scepter, from Beth-eden;
      So the people of Aram will go exiled to Kir,”
      Says the LORD.
6      Thus says the LORD,
      “For three transgressions of Gaza and for four
      I will not revoke its punishment,
      Because they deported an entire population
      To deliver it up to Edom.
7      “So I will send fire upon the wall of Gaza
      And it will consume her citadels.
8      “I will also cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod,
      And him who holds the scepter, from Ashkelon;
      I will even unleash My power upon Ekron,
      And the remnant of the Philistines will perish,”
      Says the Lord GOD.
9      Thus says the LORD,
      “For three transgressions of Tyre and for four
      I will not revoke its punishment,
      Because they delivered up an entire population to Edom
      And did not remember the covenant of brotherhood.
10      “So I will send fire upon the wall of Tyre
      And it will consume her citadels.”

Will these prophesies be realized in our day? Sending fire is what's taking place.
