Some of our readers have been asking about the ongoing situation in Syria. It’s very tragic–and tens of thousands of civilians have been killed in the crossfire between the Assad government and rebel forces.
Why is all of this happening? We know the Assad government has been a ruthless dictatorship and a major state sponsor of terrorism over the years, but would a rebel-run government be any better?
More importantly, is there light at the end of the tunnel? In this guest editorial (below), our friends at Israel College of the Bible point us to Isaiah’s prophecies and the prophet’s vision of a future Day when Syria will be Israel’s friend! Now that’s a refreshing thought in the midst of the current barrage of bad news from the Middle East.
