Isaiah 17:1-3 (KJV)
The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
NEVER SAY NEVER....This prophecy was fulfilled in 2 Kings but could be future as well.
2 Kings 16:7-10King James Version (KJV)
7 So Ahaz sent messengers to Tiglathpileser king of Assyria, saying, I am thy servant and thy son: come up, and save me out of the hand of the king of Syria, and out of the hand of the king of Israel, which rise up against me.
8 And Ahaz took the silver and gold that was found in the house of the Lord, and in the treasures of the king's house, and sent it for a present to the king of Assyria.
9 And the king of Assyria hearkened unto him: for the king of Assyria went up against Damascus, and took it, and carried the people of it captive to Kir, and slew Rezin.
Does Israel know Rebecca, Isaac's wife was Syrian?
Genesis 25:19-21King James Version (KJV)
19 And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham begat Isaac:
20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.
21 And Isaac intreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: and the Lord was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.

Lavrov to Israel: No One Is Going to Attack You. Relax
Russia's Foreign Minister doesn't seem very impressed by Israel's threat to bomb Assad's palace
Wed, Aug 30, 2017
Probably nobody was surprised when a senior Israeli official on Monday "warned the Russian government that if Iran continues to extend its reach in Syria, Israel will bomb Syrian President Bashar Assad's palace in Damascus".
Strong words. But Moscow doesn't seem particularly impressed.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stressed that his government has "no information" about anyone planning an attack on Israel—and reminded all relevant parties that bombing sovereign nations for no reason whatsoever is a violation of international law.
Moscow has no information about anyone preparing an attack on Israel, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said following his talks with the emir of Qatar on Wednesday.
"We don’t have any information about anyone preparing an attack on Israel," the Russian top diplomat said commenting on media reports stating that Iran plans to deploy high-precision missiles, capable of hitting Israel, to Syria and Lebanon.
While speaking about the nature of cooperation between Iran and Syria, the Russian foreign minister stressed that "if they [Iran and Syria] cooperate in any field without violating the foundations of international law, then no one should question their cooperation."
"If anyone in the Middle East or in other parts of the world plans to violate international law by infringing on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other states, including the countries of the Middle East and North Africa, it is reprehensible," Lavrov added. (end of article)
I would add that the word reprehensible is bit like a slap on the wrist to a nation or sending a child to their room for misbehaving. While the nature of war is to fight an enemy but who created these enemies and are they paid to do their dirty work? I heard these defined organizations will work for the highest bidder.
So much of what we see and hear is soiled with greed and covetousness. It is not patriotic of any nation to fight over material gain to increase more wealth using human beings as military power. Their lives have value and cannot be used for increasing bank accounts.
The world is on the edge of their seats watching global leaders take their place on stage to give the best performance of the season. No one knows the next scene and what that will look like but one thing is for sure, they seem to be hungry for war. Is this what the mind of man has accomplished?
