Expressing concern over the US, France, and Great Britain response to the chemical attack on civilians in Syria, Russia, Turkey, and Iran met this past weekend in Moscow to try to hammer out a solution of their own. Or so they said. While Turkey welcomed the missile attack from the Western nations in response to the chemical attack, Russia and Iran released news stories claiming the attack was a false flag to frame their man, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.
Turkey’s Erdogan has made it no secret that he has two problems with Syria: (1) he hates Bashar Al-Assad; and (2) he hates the Kurds in Syria who are growing stronger because they have successfully fought ISIS with the help of the US, which only emboldens Kurds in their fight against Turkey. Nevertheless, despite their differences, the three nations see the need to try to work things out over Syria because they all have a foe they consider more of a bother than their disagreements–Israel.
If they can’t find a solution for Syria, it will delay their focus on bringing down Israel. That, in my opinion, is their real impetus for dealing with Syria’s problems. It’s a precursor to their future attack against Israel as predicted in Ezekiel 38-39. Russia (Magog, Meshech, and Tubal), Iran (Persia), and Turkey (Togarmah) will be three of the main nations to lead that attack. According to Ezekiel 38:12, the impetus for their attack will be anti-Semitic envy over Israel’s prosperity as they covet Israel’s natural resources.
The results of this meeting are worth paying attention to.
