Ezekiel 38: 3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Rosh*, Meshech and Tubal: 4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: 5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet.
* Rosh is left out in newer Bibles – is still to be found in my Bible from 1962.
The Daily Mail 30 Sept. 2015: Russia begins air strikes in Syria after warning the US to remove its planes from Syria.
But all the areas targeted are held by moderate rebels backed by coalition.
Strikes have infuriated Washington who accused Moscow of destabilising the region even further
Russia’s upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to allow President Vladimir Putin to send troops to Syria to fight the Islamic State.
The Federation Council discussed Mr Putin’s request for the authorisation behind the closed-doors meeting on Wednesday. The last time he did so was before Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in March 2014.
The Kremlin reported that Mr Putin hosted a meeting of the Russian security council at his residence outside Moscow on Tuesday night, saying that they were discussing terrorism and extremism.
Ivanov insisted that Moscow is not going to send ground troops to Syria but will only use its air force ‘in order to support the government Syrian forces in their fight against the Islamic State’ group. (Untrue: Russian boots are already on the ground in Syria – and are fighting alongside Assad´s troops!!)
He said the motion came after Moscow received a request from Mr Assad asking for help.
Putin said the biggest difference between Russia and other countries carrying out air strikes in Syria – such as the US – is that ‘they do not comply with the international law, but we do’.
DEBKAfile 30 Sept. 2015: According to initial reports from Middle Eastern sources, Russian Air Force jets carried out bombing runs against rebel positions in Syria on Wednesday afternoon. The jets targeted positions in the cities of Homs and Hama and in the areas of Ltamenah and Zaafrana Talbeseh.
DEBKAfile 30 Sept. 2015: A day after the White House said that “clarity” on Russian intentions in Syria had been achieved at the Obama-Putin summit in New York, the Russian President Vladimir Putin notched up the military tensions around Syria. A senior US official said that Russian diplomats had sent an official demarche ordering US planes to quit Syria, adding that Russian fighter jets were now flying over Sy
rian territory. US military sources told Fox News that US planes would not comply with the Russian demand. “
His action now contradicts his assertion to CBS on Sept. 28: “Russia will not participate in any troop operations in the territory of Syria or in any other states. Well, at least we don’t plan on it right now.”
DEBKAfile’s military sources report that Russian preparations for military action in Syria are clearly not limited to that country. They are being run by a joint coordination forward command and war room established a few days ago by Russia, Iran, Iraq and Syria in Baghdad. It is designed as the counterpart of the US Central Command-Forward-Jordan war room e
Conspicuous in the swiftly evolving Syrian situation is the detailed advance planning which went into the Russian military buildup and partnerships.
Tuesday, US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter instructed his staff to establish a communication channel with the Kremlin to ensure the safety of US and Russian military operations.
Israel’s Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon denied Tuesday night that Israel was coordinating its operations with the Russian army, stressing that Israel reserves the IDF’s right to freedom of action over Syria and would continue to prevent arms supplies reaching terrorist organizations such as Hizballah.
The Russian military buildup is assuming far greater proportions than either imagined, far outpacing US or Israeli efforts at coordination.
Two days ago, it seemed that despite certain disagreement, a common ground on Syria had been achieved in Washington between the 2 Freemasons and presidents Obama and Putin.
It also seems that for some months, the US has approved of Russia´s moves in Syria. The very short interval between this meeting and the Russian bombardments seems to hint at an agreement. Does Obama now want to save Assad to avoid Libyanisation in Syria?
The harsh tone from the Russian side could be part of this staged play – which will, no doubt lead to a clash when their puppeteers command it to happen. The only question is: When? The Chabad Lubawitch, which has so long brainwashed probably Jewish Putin, and the Pentacostals and the High-degree Masons will see to it that God´s (Matth 24, Luke 21, Ezekiel 38-39, Jeremiah 25 etc,) plan is fulfilled!
