Tomorrow, on September 1, 2018, Jews in synagogues around the world will be recounting a long list of horrible curses that stand in stark opposition to a list of beautiful blessings which are all ours, if we will just do what we are supposed to do.

Tomorrow, September 1, 2018, will be the 79th anniversary of the beginning of WW2, a time in which no one can deny that all the curses came true.

Tomorrow, September 1, 2018, may actually see the beginning of WW3. Let's hope, that it will bring us to the period of the blessings this time.
Russia and Syria vow to 'wipe out terrorists' in Idlib
Humanitarian fears grow as Russian and Syrian FMs signal all-out attack on last rebel-held stronghold is imminent.

..."It's not a question of if it will happen, it is a question of when and the severity of it," he added, noting that the Russian and Syrian governments believe that the seven-year war will largely be over if they capture Idlib.

Russia notches up military tensions by pouring out charges of coming US aggression in Syria

The latest claim by the Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday, Aug. 30, was that “it will take the US and its allies just 24 hours to ready its missile-strike group for an attack on Syria.” This charge followed Moscow’s announcement of a major Russian naval exercise in the Mediterranean Sea starting as soon as Saturday Sept. 1 with 25 warships and submarines and 30 planes, including fighter jets and strategic bombers, taking part.

In Washington, the Russian ambassador warned the US against engaging in “unjustified and illegal act of aggression in Syria.”

...On Wednesday, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused the US of planning a false flag chemical weapons attack in Syria’s Idlib province to frame Damascus and use as a pretext for a new strike. In a classical pot calling the kettle black tactic, Lavrov accused the US of planning a “provocation” in Syria to thwart the coming Russian-Iranian-Syrian offensive against the rebels in Idlib, in order to save the Syrian “terrorists” – just as America did in Libya and Iraq.
