1. On Yom Kippur, the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, gave a speech at the United Nations consisting of a semi-coherent religious-mystical rant declaring the Zionist Regime, the Western Democracies and the Capitalists as the source of all evil in the world. But not to worry, his god and his messiah is coming to clean it all up. (Full text link.) Not to worry his messiah will bring the xian messiah along as a bowling buddy (he says so!).
2. The Syrian Civil War was resulting in 1000 dead per month until Tisha B'Av. After Tisha B'Av 5000 people have been killed per month. Note any discussions of Western action have fallen away (the U.S. election is the focus) even while reports of chemical weapons on the move and increasing Iranian presence. Even the Russians have begun to evacuate their people and bases (source link).
3. In the biggest ignored related news item, a Syrian attack crossed the Turkish border and killed (at least 5) civilians in Turkey. The Turkish response has been massive and swift… returning fire directly at Syrian military bases near the border as well as running a sweeping artillary bombardment to create a 10 mile buffer zone (news link). (Note when Israel did something like this in Lebanon and Gaza, immediate massive world condemnation… here, crickets.) The Turks also got a NATO backing statement (the incident qualifies as a foreign attack on a NATO member).
Here’s the point. Several trigger incidents are in place, each of which by itself could precipitate a regional or world war and further align nicely with various prophecies (Zohar VaYeira 119. "There will be a major war in the North in which two kings will perish.")
a. Turkey – Syria. Turkey is primed to react, Syria continues in it’s civil war with increasing Iranian presence (and the Iranians have their own goals).
b. Iran/Hizbollah/Hamas – Israel. The proxy war scenario is not new but remains primed and could provide a good distraction from Iran’s perspective.
c. U.S. – Iran. The U.S. now has 3 battlegroups in place to protect Arab oil suppliers to the West. This is a hair trigger situation with Iran threatening almost every day.
d. Israel – Iran and nukes. How and when will Israel react to Iranian nuclear progress, as well as Western sanctions now causing hyper-inflation in Iran [news link], which may cause Iran to react sooner and/or target it’s actions against the U.S. or the E.U.
Ignore the politicians, note the events.
