Israel Warns Of War With Hezbollah;Isaiah End Time Prophecy In Clearer Focus
A prominent Israeli general Thursday warned of a war between Israel and the Syrian/Iranian-backed Hezbollah between now and the year 2007, bringing into clearer focus an Isaiah 17 prophecy about the destruction of Damascus. General Benny Gantz, Chief of the Israeli Defense Forces Northern Command, said that Syria, under pressure to quit Lebanon, was likely to approve an Iranian-Hezbollah campaign against Israel. General Gantz said that Hezbollah has become a threat to Israel because it has over 15,000 rockets and missiles pointed at Israel from the Lebanon border. He said that Hezbollah has become increasingly supportive of Palestinian terrorist cells in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.General Gantz was speaking at the 2nd International Warfare in Low Intensity Conflict Conference in Tel Aviv, a meeting of military leaders where Israeli Defense Forces experts share strategies and doctrines about how to fight the type of warfare they have experienced in the conflicts with Islamic fundamentalists and other hostile Arab neighbors. Gantz told the conference that he did not envision a conventional attack by Syria against Israel, but rather a scenario whereby Iran or Damascus would use Hezbollah for a proxy war.
