Has Bashar al-Assad been wounded or killed?
Syrian president Bashar al-Assad’s whereabouts have been unconfirmed in the aftermath of the rebel bombing of Syrian government headquarters yesterday, July 18th, 2012. One source, according to a report in The Guardian, claims the Syrian head of state was wounded in yesterday’s blast. Killed in the attack were Assef Shawkat, Assad’s brother-in-law and the deputy head of the armed forces, and his closest security adviser. Also slain were Dawoud Rajha, the minister of defence and the regime’s most senior Christian figure, and Hassan Turkmani, Assad’s crisis management chief.
Assad’s whereabouts are unclear. An unconfirmed report claims that he had been wounded and left Damascus for Latakia, Syria’s principal port city, situated on the Mediterranean coast. Rumors persist that Assad’s wife Asma has fled to Russia. It is also speculated that troops were being issued gas masks, fueling fears that chemical weapons may soon be deployed.
Supporters of Assad admit the attack was a serious blow, but do not believe that it will mean the end of the regime, despite the loss of critical members. But, when we consider key and critical members of the regime, one question remains: Where is Bashar al-Assad?
Slowly, but with steady deliberation we are seemingly moving toward the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies written in Isaiah 17:1 and Jeremiah 49:23-27. Newly-elected Egyptian president Mohamed Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood desire to take Jerusalem as the capital city of a new unified Islamist region. The fall of Damascus and the Brotherhood’s subsequent take-over of Syria would put them one major step closer to the holy city.
But does God have other plans?
Americans by and large have little interest in what takes place in the Middle East. “That’s way over there” may be the mindset, but what takes place “over there” has greater bearing on the life of Americans than Obama vs. Romney.
Presidential candidates have become tools of the banksters and elites – to be paid-for and manipulated like human chess pieces to fulfill an avaricious means to an end. What is taking place in the Middle East is supernatural and was prophesied ages ago.
This writer would put more credence into the words of the Bible than those of lying leveraged natural men seeking maintain to positions of power.
