Syria's President Bashur Assad Says Israeli Aid To Georgia Encourages Syrian-Russian Military Agreements

By Jimmy DeYoung

On a visit to Moscow, Syrian President Bashur Assad said the fact that Russia's conflict with Georgia in which Moscow says Georgia used Israeli supplied military equipment, underlined the need for Russia and Syria to strengthen their military cooperation.

Assad used the visit to expand military ties with Russia whose arm sales to the Middle East state have angered the US and Israel and this visit comes at a time when Russia is considering closer ties with the Arab world. President Assad told Russia his country would deploy Russian missile systems in Syria in response to the US missile shield in Europe.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Syria's military cooperation with Russia in today's world is a precursor to an alignment between these two countries in a prophetic future tomorrow.

On the hills of the Russian-Georgian conflict and all of its ramifications, the visit by Syria's President Bashur Assad to Moscow put a spotlight on an alignment between two nations that are major players in the Last Days according to Bible prophecy. During the former Soviet Union days, the Arab world was sold military equipment in order to fight against Israel. Now, Russia is considering the renewal of this transfer of military weapons and technology that could arm Syria and all of the Arab nations to the extent that they could stand up to Israel's military might.

This scenario was foretold in Bible prophecy by the ancient Jewish prophets Daniel and Ezekiel 2,500 years ago. The Magog of Ezekiel 38:2 is modern day Russia and the King of the North in Daniel 11:40-42 is modern day Syria. Daniel's prophecy reveals that Syria will be the first nation to make a move against Israel before all of the other Arab and Islamic states join in the battle, Daniel 11:40-44.

This meeting in Moscow between Syria and Russia is indeed a precursor to the End Times scenario found in Bible prophecy.
