In Syria, thousands of residents have fled the northern city of Jisr ash-Shughur since Monday in anticipation of a massive military offensive in retaliation to clashes there that reportedly killed 120 security personnel.

Islamist insurgents repelled government forces on Monday in an operation that was better organized than previous opposition efforts, which have involved disparate groups in different parts of the country.

The same area experienced similar pushes between 1976 and 1982, when the Muslim Brotherhood tried to oust the president, Bashar al-Assad’s father, Hafez al-Assad. Then, the president retaliated strongly. It looks like something similar may happen again.

While the widespread discontent in Syria is unlikely to go away anytime soon, for the moment, the Assad regime appears to still have a firm grip on power, enjoying the strong support of the military officer corps, mostly Alawites and Christians who are loyal to the government and fear an Islamist regime coming to power.

Some analysts do see change on the horizon though. “This looks like the tipping point,” says Barry Rubin, author of The Truth About Syria, speaking of the popular uprising that has continued for nearly three months.

Concessions so far, such as the release last week of hundreds of political prisoners from jails, have thus far failed to blunt the effect of the protests.

Rubin says the impasse may result in the regime staying but Assad leaving. The many people who support the regime are not necessarily reliant on Assad himself to be in power for their interests to be protected. “There are two parts to this regime,” he said, “the man himself and his immediate family, and the larger regime, including its military support.”

“It is possible that at some point a responsible adult high in the ranks of the Syrian Army or the head of an intelligence agency will understand that it is worth throwing the public a bone in order to salvage as much as possible,” Prof. Mordechai Kedar, a professor of security affairs at Israel’s Bar Ilan University, wrote recently. “With the assistance of several armed bodyguards, he will arrest Bashar Assad ….”

Professor Kedar explained that such a person would “conduct a hasty trial and treat [the Assad family] as the public expects them to be treated, in order to attain calm. He will announce constitutional changes and economic reforms and schedule elections for several months later.”

This is certainly a possibility—and could open the door for some serious foreign-policy changes in Syria. Biblical prophecy indicates that at some point in the near future Syria will ally with the more “moderate” Arab states and part ways with Iran. Watch this country for how this may come about.

will69ease very interesting but God has nothing to do with this.
It is man who kills man, not God or prophesy.
The middle east people are fighting for their freedom of choice trying to break the oppressive regimes that keep the people in fear.

Again, it is you who brings God into this. I never blamed God for anything.
In fact, God is not mentioned in any of my threads.

Well, if you're looking for a purely political discussion (not that those go any better)
then you should consider how the words 'Biblical Prophecy' is going to taint your thread.

I'd love to. But nobody has responded to them so I quit looking. I get the feeling I am wasting
my time, and a great deal of time on my moon/ISS threads.
Further more, I am not anti-muslim.

Will, it doesnt matter what side anyone takes,
with Zaff, everyones anti-muslim.
Even those that arent.

its what he does.

And for the record, i wasnt saying you shouldnt mention the bible or prophecy or things like that but be fully aware how this group is going to take it, regardless if youre just saying what somone ELSE has said.. its part of the virulent "anti anything remotely Bible-ish" atmosphere here, and they will just jump your shit..

so if you do mention that stuff, be prepared for what follows,
and dont get offended or indignant, that just works against you.

cheers

Will, may ask where the Bible states Syria will leave change it's allegiances. As you probably know that interests me. See Isaiah 17 states that Damascus will be destroyed in the last days. Become a ruinous heap. This is interesting because Damascus is the longest inhabited city on earth.

1 The burden against Damascus.


“ Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city,
And it will be a ruinous heap. Isaiah 17:1
