Syria's Kurds head to Iraq to prepare for war

In an October 05, 2012 article at, Jason Ditz reported on the Syrian rebel violence, which saw "various rebel factions seizing territory in the north..." Ditz then turned his attention to "[o]il rich northeastern Syria, the nation's Kurdish region", claiming "many are flocking to Iraqi Kurdistan" to "train with the Pashmearga, the militia of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG)..."

Ditz then cited estimates that claim "25,000 Syrian Kurds are now in KRG-run camps for training..."

This development could have significant implications relative to Jeremiah's prophecy of doom on the land of Babylon as found in Jeremiah chapters 50 and 51 in the hebrew bible.

Following the invasion of the land by "a great king and many nations", the nation's subsequent capture in humiliating defeat and the "punishment" of the "Arrogant One", the "king" of Babylon, there will be fires in the cities and abandonment by the foreign reconstructionists.

After that, the nation will be invaded once again by nations out of the "north", specifically out of the lands of "Minni, Ashkenaz and Ararat," areas that align with northwestern Iran, the lands currently controlled by autonomous Kurdistan, and northeastern Syria and southeastern Turkey. These nations will be led by the "spirit of the kings of the Medes," and the Medes are claimed to be the ancestors of the modern day Kurds.

Currently Kurdistan is ruled by former rival factions of Kurds, those of Iranian persuasion and those of Iraqi alignment. In 1993 the two factions stopped fighting each other and joined the United States in common cause of defeating Saddam Hussein. After his toppling, the two Kurdish factions, under Talibani and Barzani, essentially the "Minni" (Iranian) and "Ashkenazi" (Iraqi) arms, consolidated their power structure into the governing of the semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government.

What then remains missing for the Jeremiah prophecy of the ascendancy of the "Medes" in an attack on "Babylon" is the third faction, the "western" faction of "Ararat", a reference to the southeastern-Turkish-northeastern-Syrian region, a traditional homeland for the Kurds.

If these "Syrian" Kurds were to in some way formally align themselves with the Kurdistan Regional Government, then the stage would be set for the three nations of the Medes -- Minni, Ashkenaz and Ararat -- to rise up under the leadership of the "spirit of the kings of the Medes" to sweep down into the "land of the Chaldeans" to "take a spoil" and plunder her "treasures."
