18 This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord. 19 In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. 23 And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the Lord.’
The Path from Moscow to Ukraine to Israel Begins
The whole world is paying attention to the ongoing war crimes committed against Ukraine launched by Valdimir Putin. Yes, he is a narcissistic megalomaniac, a pathological liar, an atheistic mass murderer, and a totalitarian dirtbag who doesn’t possess one ounce of human conscience. And these are his lesser evils. But, you have to dig deeper into what motivates him.
Others, like Stalin and Hitler, shared the same psychological defects as Putin. But Putin has a far more sinister drive. He’s undoubtedly under demonic control… Satan’s puppet on a string, and there’s nothing he wouldn’t do, no matter how ghastly or macabre, to submit to the king of hell.
In answer to the question, “Would Putin lead the Russian army to attack Israel?” Yes, he could and would if there was a good reason. What you will not hear from the major news desks around the world is that every circumstance is lining up for this to become an unavoidable eventuality.
Vengance Against NATO
Fact #1: Putin Loathes NATO’s Solidarity in Western Europe and Has Been Striving to Unravel It for Decades.
Right! Isn’t that the main reason he attacked Crimea and Ukraine? He feared NATO’s continued expansion. But there’s more. Most people haven’t been paying attention to the fact that Russia has two military bases in Syria: The Hmeimim airbase in the northwest and the naval port of Tartus, further south. So why would a civil war-torn, ISIS-infected hole in the Middle East have any value to Putin? The primary reason is that Syria is at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, which opens direct access to the rest of NATO-controlled Western Europe.
All About Love Triangles
Fact #2: Syria and Israel Share a Common Border and Have Long Been Mortal Enemies Since 1948.
These two nations have been locked in a perpetual war resulting in several bloody engagements: 1948-49, 1967, 1972, and 1982. Their mutual disgust with each other runs deep. Today, each nation blocks the citizens of the other from travel across the border. Syria refuses to recognize Israel as a legitimate state and is a strategic ally of Iran… another enemy of Israel.
Fact #3: Russia Loves Syria. Syria Loves Russia Back. Israel and Russia Have Been “Unconditional Allies” Since 2016.
Now follow this one very closely, because it has all the makings of a love triangle… and we all know how those end. Naftali Bennett, the Israeli Prime Minister, believes he can mediate the peace talks between Ukraine and Russia. In fact, Bennett was the first foreign leader to meet with Putin in Moscow after the invasion of Ukraine.
So why would Israel cozy up to Russia? The answer is simple. Israel expects Putin to keep them out of another armed conflict with Syria or a nuclear war with another Russian ally… Iran. Remember that old proverb, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Israel seems to believe, “The friend of my enemy is my friend.”
Bennett, Israel’s Prime Minister, is playing with fire and doesn’t realize it. He refuses to condemn Putin or even allow Ukrainian refugees safe passage into Israel. Bennett is being played by Putin. There can only be one reason that Russia shows any interest in Israel… Israel and the U.S. are allies. This is the second love triangle playing out in real time. Putin is playing a game of chess while the rest of the world is playing checkers.
Fact #4: Syrian Mercenaries Have Joined Russia in the War Against Ukraine, Whereas Israel Tries to Maintain Friendly Relations with Ukraine.
This begs the question, “What did Putin promise these blood-thirsty mercenaries in return for sacrificing their blood on Ukrainian soil?” Almighty rubles? No, those are worth less than a penny. Nice homes in Ukraine? No, the whole country is being bombed back into the dark ages.
What would Syria want more than anything else?
Syria’s main grievance against Israel is their continued occupation of the Golan Heights, which officially belongs to Syria. This has been going on for decades and is the primary source of conflict throughout the Middle East today. Syria wants Israel to leave… to put it politely.
This begs another question, “Why would Putin offer Syrian mercenaries anything to fight for him?” Ha, he’s desperate. His mighty Russian army is manned by marshmallows, and he knows it. Putin is desperate at this point to save his ass after underestimating the Ukrainian’s ability to resist. He can’t lose this war and survive assassination.
Putin would sell out Israel to Syria in a heartbeat. He as no soul. He has no loyalties other than to himself. Would America come to the rescue of Israel? Maybe. Would NATO? No, Israel does not belong to NATO. Let me say that again. ISRAEL DOES NOT BELONG TO NATO!!! They are in the same position as Ukraine... a sitting duck with clipped wings.
