Okay, this sent chills down my spine
The report that Israel has given Syria a 72-hour ultimatum ("...to stop Hizbullah’s activity along the Lebanon-Israel border and bring about the release the two kidnapped IDF soldiers or it would launch an offensive with disastrous consequences...") didn't do it. But a commenter's note did:
|Isaiah speaks of Damascus ...when he says (17:1):|
The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap... ...and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts.
