AFP – John Brennan, director of the US Central Intelligence Agency, arrived in Israel late on Thursday on a surprise visit to discuss the situation in Syria, an official Israeli source said.

The CIA chief went straight into a meeting in Tel Aviv with Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon, the official said.

Private television station Channel 10 said that Yaalon reaffirmed during the talks that Israel “will not permit the transfer of weapons” from Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The powerful Shi’a group is a strong ally of both Israeli arch-foe Iran and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

Brennan’s trip comes two days after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Putin warned against any moves that would further destabilise the situation in Syria.

“In this crucial period it is especially important to avoid any moves that can shake the situation,” Putin was quoted as saying by news agencies, days after Israeli forces launched air strikes against regime targets in Syria.

Netanyahu had been expected to warn Putin against delivering advanced S-300 missiles to Syria, which would severely complicate any future air attacks against Assad’s regime.

In his public comments, the Israeli premier did not indicate whether he succeeded in convincing Putin to halt arms supplies to Syria or whether the two leaders reached any firm agreements.

  • In my opinion, Russia sent the fleet into the med to deal with Israeli air strikes. That’s what the anti – sub warfare ship is for. Russia believes that Israel’s greatest threat to the fleet would be Israel’s submarines. The US should give immediate aid to Israel for free in the gifting of some stealth cruise missiles by no latter than Monday. fly them in. If were going to defend Israel, then were going to have to give them better weapons than Russia can give Syria. Just don’t give weapons to the rebels. We have to let Russia understand that Hezbollah cannot be allowed to have advanced weapons to use against Israel. Did you know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today? Despite military losses it has always been populated. Yet Isaiah 17 states that God will take it away from being a city. That has not happened as of yet. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at that short chapter. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next
