It looks like Sar of Syria wants a Jewish fight after all. As I've said, the last of Yishmael is clinging on for its life, and the remnant will be the ones that will only go out with a bang. The meforshim all state, Yishmael's fall is the impetus that clearly marks Moshiach Ben David's arrival. He has certainly taken his time to fall, and the elimination of Assad and Syria would be the straw that breaks the camel's back, as that would isolate Iran and Hizbulah [and Gaza I guess - which is also coming into fruition].
People have lost interest in Arab Spring because it has lingered for so long. But let it be know, it will be the end of Arab Spring that contains the Grand Finale, a show starring their hated neighbor, Israel. We just happen to call that Gog V' Magog.
Speaking of Gog...Obama anyone? Obama to Israel? [i.e. Gog's 2nd and 3rd visits to Israel]
Times are getting exciting: as the Mayan Calendar is coming up, and no matter what your opinion/expectation of it may be, it is in fact a massive astronomical portal/node based on the overlapping Rakiah's involved. [Altogether there are at least 6 different phenomena converging in that time frame, constituting it as a node. Perforce [and these events are rooted in Torah as well] there should be at least an opportunity for change, as Astronomy is a simon/observsation point showing what is going on on earth, and not the other way around, i.e. astrology that governs us. We govern it, by superimposing [what we do here] to reflect this image above.
From there we have gone through Chanukkah 5773, and into the depths of 5773 - Obamaland, etc. Obama will focus on Israel - and heavily. He will play with fire, and we can only hope all of this is the 5773 we hoped for.
Israel fired at and struck two Syrian mortar launchers on Monday, following the second time in as many days that Syrian artillery shells exploded in Israeli territory.
A tank from the 401 Armored Brigade fired at the Syrian targets in what was an escalated Israeli retaliation to Syrian fire. Unlike Sunday’s exchange, the IDF fired with the intention of hitting its target, as part of a new policy designed to deter Syrian forces from firing into Israel.
There were conflicting reports on whether Syrian soldiers were injured in the aftermath. IDF sources said there were no known injuries, though a Channel 2 report claimed that a number of soldiers in Syria were hurt, and broadcast video of a Syrian ambulance sent to evacuate the soldiers.
The IDF does not believe that Monday’s shell was deliberate, but intensified its response nonetheless in order to send the message to Damascus that the errant shells must stop.
The Syrian army is in the area to pursue rebels who have taken refuge in the village of Be’er Ajam, a few kilometers from Israel. The Syrian shell exploded near an IDF outpost at Hezakia on the Golan Heights.
“We will not allow anyone to breach our borders or to fire on our citizens,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said following the incident.
Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon said earlier Monday, before the second shell hit Israel, that Syrian President Bashar Assad was being very careful regarding the border with Israel.
Ya’alon noted, however, that there was very heavy fighting taking place near the Golan Heights as well as in Damascus, referring to Syria’s ongoing civil war.
On Sunday, after a similar incident, the IDF fired an advanced Tapuz-type missile at a Syrian artillery cannon aimed toward a Syrian military target, deliberately missing the cannon.
“In the midst of Syrian infighting, a mortar shell fired by the Syrian army struck near an [IDF] outpost at Tel Azeka,” IDF spokesman Brig.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai said Sunday.
The shell did not cause injuries or damage. It was one of a series that hit Israeli territory.
“In light of the policy instituted by IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen.
Benny Gantz, a warning round was fired back into Syria. We don’t believe it caused injuries or damages,” Mordechai added.
“We will not accept any firing into our territory,” he concluded.
