Syria admitted for the first time recently it has chemical weapons and may use them against outside forces.Fears that those weapons could fall into terrorist hands or that jihadists could infiltrate Israel's border with Syria has the Jewish state on high alert.Israeli authorities are quietly stepping up distribution of gas masks at malls and other public places. By the end of the year, the army estimates another half million gas masks will be distributed--an average of more than 80,000 a month.But Israelis say they're not panicking about chemical weapons. They're just doing what they're told and getting prepared."Yes, I'm concerned but I don't think the masks will help us. Just God will help us, I think," one woman at the gas mask distribution center told CBN News."Everybody's concerned because nobody knows what happens. I sleep well at night," another man said.The Israeli-Syrian BorderMeanwhile, chemical weapons falling into the wrong hands is not the only Syrian threat Israel is facing.The Israeli-Syrian border on the Golan Heights has been Israel's quietest border for the last 40 years. But experts say that could change if and when Syrian President Bashar Assad falls."We run into a country that has no rule of law, no law, no authority and then it's used to regularly attack Israel, let's say in the Golan Heights with rockets, with terrorist infiltration, similar to what we see along Israel's border today with Gaza and with Sinai," Jerusalem Post military correspondent Yaakov Katz told CBN News.read more: http://www.charismanews.com/world/33930-israel-remains-calm-as-it-girds-itself-for-war

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem. Psalm 122:6
Psalm 83 - Prophecies Arab-Israeli war3 They lay crafty plans against your people;they consult together against your treasured ones.4 They say, Come, let us wipe them out as a nation;let the name of Israel be remembered no more!5 For they conspire with one accord;against you they make a covenant6 the tents of Edom and of the Ishmaelites,Moab and the Hagrites,7 Gebal and Ammon and Amalek,Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;8 Asshur also has joined them;they are the strong arm of the children of Lot. Paslm 83 has a prophecy yet to be fulfilled about an Arab confederacy that will attack Israel. Countries like Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt,(maybe Iraq too) and other populations like palestinians.It is believed by some bible teachers, that this war against Israel will occur prior to Gog & Magog war of Ezekiel 38 & 39 that happens before Tribulation.Interesting to note that the arabic countries & populations that are going to attack Israel in Psalm 83, are missing from Gog and Magog war (Russia-Iran led invasion) against Israel.
