BREAKING: Assad Shot By Bodyguard – Hospitalized in Damascus | The Gateway Pundit

Comment & Analysis


L. A. Marzulli

I’ve been watching this for about three hours now, and felt it’s time to put it up.  We don’t have any details and as far as I’m concerned the story is still in the rumor stage as it has not been vetted.  However, all things considered, I’m posting it because if it is true it is a game changer.

Here’s some thoughts to consider:

1.  If Assad dies who will take control?

2.  If Assad has a head wound and survives now what?

3.  What happens to Syria’s chemical weapons?

4.  Will the Israeli’s move in to secure the chemical weapons?

5.  Will Turkey seize the opportunity to invade?

6. Will Iran assert its muscle?

7.  How will the Russians react?

I’ll keep you posted as news comes my way.

  1. Wow! I haven’t had news on at all today so hadn’t heard anything. Thanks for keeping your finger on the pulse of things. Yes, if true, a game changer!

  2. WOW,if this turns out to be true this may indeed be a real game changer! Things sure do seem to be Accelerating!! Thanks La for being so on the watch!

  3. WOW! RE: Your #2 on the list about the head wound. Years ago when we lived in Oklahoma for almost 7 years, (1987) Bible Study Daniel & Revelation (The year the Challenger went down that night we had our weekly Bible Study); anyway the pastor told us the Antichrist would come out of Syria. I have that written in the front of my Bible on one of the blank pages for notes. If this comes true, it is really going to freak me out! We live back in NE KS not far from KC. I have goose bumps thinking about this. Earlier when I my husband first saw an article about this, I thought about a head wound the pastor also told us about. I also had written the false prophet will be a Jew, but if the false prophet may be the Pope, he is not Jewish. I am not very well educated on all this as you can probably tell, but just remembering what our pastor back then said and my notes I took.

    I only recently connected with PITN on FB as I first saw J.R. Church on TV when we lived in OK.

    Thank you for your ministry. I am still trying to grasp and understand the Nephilim. I remember my grandmother talking about giants and Nephilim when I was young and did not even pursue that further in my younger days. Things are happening so fast. Oh dear and my grandbabies are in Japan (Navy parents-son and daughter in-law both serve.) That makes me sad thinking I may never see them again. The mystery of God and all these prophecies are coming to life.

    God Bless, Terri

  4. Still unconfirmed. MSM is still dark on it. So is DEBKA.



    Best I can find at present. Whatever takes his place will be as bad if not worse than he is. Of that you can be assured.

    • “”

      Use of chems is basically confirmed all the way around in Syria, though. I don’t think anyone’s surprised.

      After two years of this something’s got to give soon. Maybe even today?

    • I’ve heard from more than one source that supposedly Assad has standing orders to his military that if he dies they are to attack Israel upon his death. Take it for what it’s worth.

    • This is out of Lebanon:


      It reads like more of the same until this:

      “Update: His assassin was identified as Mehdi Jakoby , a member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard who was in charge of presidential security.

      Ya Libnan will update this report as more information becomes available

      This is a developing story more to come” – With a link back to NY Daily News.

      So I guess something happened if they’re putting out a name of a potential assassin. Iranian? Huh.

    • “”

      ^^ If this ends up being a confirmed story I wonder if this will be at least part of the motivation for this.

    • “”

      This is a solid source and also suggestive of potential increased opposition against Assad.

  5. Psalm 83 on the horizon😬😬😬?…anyone wanna join me in praying for those living in the Middle East?

  6. Just the other day it was 3/22… A significant number for skull and bones in which they would set something in motion. One day later, “Olympus Has Fallen” opened in theatres depicting an attack on the White House. I surmised that this date would be when they would set something in motion. Looks like they did if this story is true. With Assad gone, the plan for the course of World War can advance according to the Illuminati plan. I guessed the other day before the 3/22 that if something didn’t happen, you can bet that something behind the scenes will be set in motion that we would soon see visibly. Looks like they did just that. People shouldn’t dismiss these occultic numbers so easily as it is very significant with these globalist satanic rulers.

  7. It could be that they are trying to provoke Russia and whoever to attack the White House. Kind of suspicious that now you have this “Olympus” movie opening in theatres right before this. By taking out Assad, Russia gets involved as they are allies. Something major is in the works here with a possible attack on the White House. I heard that later in this summer season, another movie will open depicting an attack on the White House. I think it’s called “White House Down”.

  8. This doesn’t bode well for America. America itself may be getting ready to fall. The reason for the recent massive Ammo purchases. I think they are getting ready to drop the hammer on America. The comet coming through later this year in my opinion portends something disasterous. Jesephus the Jewish historian wrote that before the destruction of the city of Jerusalem and the Jews were taken captive, a great light stood over the city for a period of time. This coming comet will to. We COULD be that close to the rapture. Hopefully, we’re outta here before something really bad happens. I hope God’s plan isn’t for any of us to experience any severe pre-tribulational birth pains. wink wink

  9. I think my money is still on Tony Blair as a strong candidate for the Anti Christ.

    Member of the universal church.

    Wants to bring all faiths together.

    Leader of the European side of “the quartet.”

    Has previously been or could be again one of the ten horns.

    And oh yeah get this, turns out he is Jewish, so he is of “the land” and not “the sea.”

    • My money is on Obama. If Obama isn’t, I can’t help but think that he is an immediate forerunner of the Antichrist paving the way for the real thing. Sorta what John the Baptist was as the immediate forerunner of the arrival of Christ… preparing the way of the Lord and making his paths strait. This would sorta be the demonic counterpart to that… I guess.

    • Blair is a good looking AC prototype in some ways to be sure but this:

      “And oh yeah get this, turns out he is Jewish, so he is of “the land” and not “the sea.”

      Blair is Jewish? Can you cite a source for that please?

    • I can’t cite a source I’m afraid, there was an entry on wikipedia it got deleted, but it his grand mother was a Jew from Germany it would seem.

    • But just google it. I literally only discovered it the last twenty fours, but people have known for a while it seems and there is also a small contingency of people drawing the same conclusion around the internet.

      The thing is before I got deeper into my studies and realised the AC had to Jewish, I’d pegged Tony Blair for a player candidate as it were. Seems the odds are even higher.

      I don’t get why people think Obama might be the AC though, not Jewish.

      People need to learn that the AC is going to be Jewish and of “The Land” (israel) and not “The Sea” (gentile multitudes)

  10. Many believe he will have a mortal head wound, and his miraculous recovery will usher in the anti christ. Now go back and read Revalation 13:3 (NIV) “One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.” This verse does NOT say the leader of this One-World Governement will be wounded. NO!! it says one the ‘heads’ of this government will be wounded. This means to qualify as a candidate for the antichrist, you must be one of the ten heads. The Bible says one of the ten heads is fatally wounded, not the leader of the ten heads. An important point to understand is, the event that leads to one of the ten heads of state being fatally wounded cannot occur until the One World government is in place. This means that according to 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, the gathering of believers or the rapture cannot occur until the antichrist is revealed, and the One World Government is in place.

    • @brightside. The european union is getting ready to elect a permanant leader to lead the countries or regions that are aligned with this new One-World governement. Tony Blair, the former leader of England, is one of the leaders who has tossed his hat into the ring to run for this position. I have allready heard of Bible teachers who believe that Tony Blair is going to be the antichrist, But No, this is not whats being said in the Bible. The Bible says one of the ten heads is fatally wounded, not the leader of the ten heads.

    • Ya know Marlene… I heard that as well elsewhere. I gotta say that was pretty interesting. We’ve heard for a long time that it’s the Antichrist that gets the headwound, but I’m not so sure now. Thanks for the reminder. So then… since we’ll know who the Antichrist could be before the rapture, I think Jesus revealed it in Luke 10:18. I went over that in yesterday’s comment section. Needless to say, the responses I got from it weren’t very favorable. I fully understand that Jesus was saying to the disciples in that passage that he saw Satan fall as lightning from the Heavens and that is the primary meaning of what he was saying. However, I can’t help but think that those two words “Baraq” and “Ubama” in that passage in the Hebrew of that scripture was at the same time a clue to us.

      But in any case, I think I agree with you about the headwound not being inflicted on the ANtichrist himself but one of the heads of the government.

    • i also want to say, that we have been misled concerning the kind of mortal wound this leader would have. Most christians believe the world leader would recover from a fatal head wound. This is taken from Revalation 13:3 (NIV) ‘One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.” This verse does not say this leader will recover from a head wound. No, what it is saying is one of the ten heads of the beast is fatally wounded. What does “one of the heads” mean? what it means is the beast is comprised of a number of leaders or heads of state, and one of thses ten heads of state is fatally wounded but not necessarily from a wound to the head. Why is htis so important? I believe this even will reveal the antichrist and the beginning of the great tribulation will soon follow. If most christians have been taught the antichrist would arise from the miraculous recovery from a fatal head wound, then when this leader does not recover from a head wound but maybe from a fatal wound to other vital organs, this will confuse many. They will not know if this really is the antichrist. Then when the antichrist rises to decieve even the elect if possible, he will have confused christians who are open to be decieved.

    • There are many anti Christs afoot for sure.


      Stay close to the Lord with everything you’ve got and share the good news with everyone who has ears to hear.

      Keep prayed up and keep your lamps trimmed.

      Shalom and Maranatha

    • I’ve heard tidbits of prophecy (couldn’t say where) claiming that England gets nuked. That could be one of your ten heads getting wounded. Scary, coz that’s where I am…

    • It’s like I’ve said before… It’s all in the numbers with these evil, Satanically inspired and controlled people (Illuminati).

    • It is very strange, Corey – and I don’t believe in coincidences.

      I’m anxious to know where he was wounded:

      Zechariah 11:17
      American Standard Version (ASV)
      17 Woe to the worthless shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

      Revelation 13:3
      American Standard Version (ASV)
      3 And I saw one of his heads as though it had been smitten unto death; and his death-stroke was healed: and the whole earth wondered after the beast;

      If he has a head wound, we may be off to the races.

      However, he also may only be a casualty of the proxy war (soon to go hot, I’m sure) between the U.S. and Russia. Time will tell.

    • VLADIMIR PUTIN (7+8=15=6)
      3149499 73295
      43 =7 26 =8

      The name gives a “destiny” number. Tho numerology states that a “6” is a real home body, loving type person. If the fallen angels gave man numerology….it would make sense that they would pick a meaning other than what God states in the Bible. Can’t imagine the antichrist being a homebody from various things said about him in the Bible.

      VLADIMIR PUTIN=6, FOX (666=18=9) OF(66=12=3) RUSSIA=6

      And….when you add each word’s number up the entire phrase comes out to a SIX. 6+9+3+6=24=6 Another candidate! I was surprised to see that his name added up to a 6. Not only that it starts with a master number (22, the V). Was surprised to see that RUSSIA was also a 6. His nickname is FOX isn’t it…or was that someone else? What a surprise to see that every letter in FOX was a 6, so 666, but it has to be added up, thus the 9 above.

      VLADIMIR PUTIN(6) OF(66=12=3) RUSSIA(6) =15=6

      We have alot of candidates! Keep watching.

      Has anyone noticed how long Obe’s fingers are? He really does resemble an alien hybred (grey).

      Enough of this, sooooo many ways to track, probably all of them wrong. We should trust our “gut” feelings…..we will sense we are near rotten meat.

      I have been watching the revised German empire also. It symbolically fits the head wound recovery.

    • @rose, i guess you didnt read my post. Another verse that helps to understand the nature and makeup of the beast is ofund in Daniel 7:20-21 (NIV) “I also wanted to know about the ten horns on its head and about the other horn that came up, before which three of them fell- the horn that looked more impossing than others and that had eyes and a mouth that spoke boastfully. As i watched, this horn was waging war agaisnt the saints and defeating them.” The portion of this verse that says, “The horn that looked more impossing than the others”, is a phrase that gives evidence that one of the ten horns will rise up from the others to become the antichrist. Once this horn of head of state has been fatally wounded, he will come back as satan in the flesh, and then it will be evident who the antichrist is.

    • Start with the words, “Cute Purple Dinosaur.”

      Since classic Latin doesn’t have the letter U, substitute Vs:


      OK, now take out the letters that correspond to Latin numerals:

      C = 100
      V = 5
      V = 5
      L = 50
      D = 500
      I = 1
      V = 5

      Add the number up = 666

      Barney the Purple Dinosaur is the Antichrist! Now that I can sign off on. 😉

    • if you study the scriptures, you will come to realize there is one sure way to know who the antichrist is before his coming to power. The Bible says he who has wisdom may be able to figure it out. Revalation 13:18 (KJV) says, “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and six” think about this, if the antichrist were to be the leader of the european union, such as tony blair, it does not take any wisdom at all to figure out who the antichrist is-the president of the european uninon. However,if you try to figure out which of these ten horns or leaders is to be the antichrist, you would need to see all of these leaders birth certificates so that you could see the name with which they were born with. One prominent world leader that could someday be one of the ten leaders of this new world government, his birth certificate is not available for anyone to see.

    • Eric — thank you for that run-down on Barney the dinosaur. It gave me a laugh to start off the morning! Have a blessed day, and same to all of you on this blog too.

    • How many main world religions are there? I wonder if satan will bring the original Buddah, Hindu god, himself for Christ, etc. Maybe God considers religious groups to be the world governments????

  11. I get easily irritated watching television news. Can’t ever find out what’s really happening there. But I still watch Fox sometimes regardless. Hmmmm indeed. Why isn’t the news media picking up on this?

  12. Here are some reports, conflicting:

    Report: Syrian Tyrant Bashar Al-Assad Shot – Clings to Life

    Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad with top generals

    Translated from JSS NEWS–According to Arab media w w w. eltira . org, Bashar al-Assad would have been seriously wounded by gunfire last night Saturday, March 23 by his bodyguard but Iran is not dead. He is currently hospitalized, between life and death, Shami Hospital in Damascus which the streets were closed.

    UPDATE: Wikipedia already reported his death:

    More… First time Wikipedia user IP in Islamabad was the Wiki source of #Assad death edit.

    UPDATE: Al-Arab media says there are conflicting reports on the shooting.

    UPDATE: Assad’s inner circle says the reports are not true – the dictator is in high spirits and will deliver a keynote speech within days (unless he’s dead).—–The sources said that President Assad was transferred to Shami Hospital in Damascus, suffering from wounds and described it as very serious, and he is fighting for his life there, while the Syrian army has closed all roads leading to the hospital. Even the meantime there has been no official statement by the system, while sources close to him denied what was in the news altogether, noting that the president was in good health and high spirits, and will deliver a keynote speech in the coming days.

    UPDATE: Isreali News One is now reporting Assad is dead: According to Arab media reports that have been verified – officials assassinated by his bodyguard of Syrian President life Heavy security around the hospital a – my mother in Damascus and in-hospital–

    Arab media reported the assassination of Syrian President Bashar Assad.On – reportedly not yet been validated and have not yet received echo Western media, Assad fired one of his bodyguards.

    This is an Iranian officer named Mehdi Jacoby, who was attached to Assad on – by allies of the Syrian president in Tehran.

    . Various reports published that Assad al-Shami was rushed to the hospital and in serious condition. Also reported the big fuss that has developed around the hospital and that all roads leading to the hospital were blocked – by the Syrian army. . Also reported large military forces are in the hospital.

    Syrian television broadcasts were discontinued. Syria apparently inhibits the official report on the assassination until it became clear whether the president would live or die. Datge: 24/03/2013

    UPDATE: Syrian TV premises have been evacuated.

    • The problem with wikipedia is people…even you or me…can edit entries and it takes a while for “fact checkers” to sweep through so take what you read on there with a grain of salt.

      I wish we could get more solid intel. It’s several hours until sunrise in Syria.

  13. Russian TV and the China TV I watch has been full of photo ops today of Putin and the China leader signing papers up in Russia. One read said something like they had agreed to work together to enforce UN laws. That made me feel real cozy. Than the China leader went and met with African leaders. I am sure our leader is working behind the scenes to do his part…whisper whisper…..making us vulnerable. It is just unbelievable that americans cannot see what is happening. The cookoo bird is in the nest. and they don’t even begin to talk of impeachment.

    • Looks like it. Seems like this is going to die off as rumor. It’ll be sunrise in Syria in several hours. Maybe we’ll know more then.

    Assad death report dismissed as ‘ridiculous’ rumor
    RT – ‎1 hour ago‎
    Media websites were abuzz with rumors of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s death on Sunday, after he had supposedly been shot the previous day. But RT later heard from a source close to the government that the news is completely untrue. The president …

    Assad Confirmed Dead, Iran Attempts To Control Syria Army
    Israel News Agency – ‎52 minutes ago‎
    Jerusalem, Israel — March 24, 2013 … Russian media sources have confirmed that Syria President Bashar Assad was shot by an Iranian bodyguard Saturday night. “The lone assassination pumped several bullets at point blank range into Assad,” said the …

    This is the type of confusion that:
    a. results from the fog of war
    b. is an intentional psy-op to distract the enemy from the real mission
    c. a sure sign of the devil
    d. all of the above

  15. @halona on twitter say “I’m living close to Shami hospital the streets haven’t been closed and you can access freely to the place. “

  16. It is way too soon to be looking for a head wound on a person. If it is a country it could be Germany…..or it could be “Babylon” in the middle east.

    The little horn that comes up on the 10th horn replaces three others. The seven heads of the beast are mountains that are set upon. Mountains are usually governments. The 10 horns are individuals, kings, men. One of the horns replaces three others….referring back to the old testament about the little horn.

    The most likely time for a head wound in a man, would be the Spring of 2015 when the dragon takes over the antichrist man, than declares himself god.

    Obe is home safe….but it sure looks like the earth will erupt sometime in the window bracketed by March 30th and October 1st. according to the timeline given by God in the Bible.

    • There is NO head wound, please go back and re-read my posts above on this subject. why is everyone so stubborn about it? why? its very simple.

  17. REVELATION 17: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (This is the woman riding the Scarlet Beast/DRAGON. He supports her endeavors from the beginning.)

    the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads (7 kingdoms that the DRAGON has or will RULE) and ten horns………a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns……The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit (5th/6th Trumpets)and go into perdition: (This is the DRAGON)

    The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth (the DRAGON kingdoms that support her). These seven mountains (kingdoms/religious beliefs?) have seven kings…….. five are fallen, (John wrote in 95AD…BUT…the vision concerns the latter day Jerusalem..and could be speaking of that time…which would mean the Roman Empire was already fallen…and the SIXTH is the Muslim/Islamic empire.) and one is (SIXTH), and the other is not yet come (SEVENTH); and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

    From the seventh horn comes the little horn, the EIGHTH. I believe these seven horns, with the little horn coming from the seventh and being the eighth….are NOT the 10 horns on the beast. Those 10 horns are probably the fallen angel kings that come with the dragon when he returns during the 5th/6th trumpet wars. The dragon is the little horn (eighth) that comes from the seventh horn on the seventh head of the beast (mountain/kingdom). That 7th kingdom that will be on earth during the latter times. The 7th kingdom that will be in power over in the middle east when the antichrist announces world rule (which is basically already here.

    And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, (these are not the 7 kingdoms that the woman has had influence on) which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. ……These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
    The 10 kings/horns shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

    And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

    And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. (In the latter times…we have the Holy Roman Church with their Pope….will be interesting to see if they move the Vatican to Jerusalem.)(God’s people were set up in Israel/Jerusalem. They crucified Christ there, and from that city came the Apostles, one of which established the Holy Roman Empire. It was from the city of Jerusalem that God wanted to establish HIS Rule through the Jews. Instead they went apostate, the Catholic church went apostate…appointing a man (pope) to stand as God’s authority, instead of Jesus Christ.) (Babylon could be the city of Jerusalem in the latter times when the dragon takes over.)

  18. In post 23 I confused the horns. The 10 horns are not the same as the 7 horns. The 10 horns I think come with the dragon and don’t rule until he establishes his kingdom. The 7 horns are past, present and future of existing or to be earthly governments as shown to John. The 8th, little horn comes fromt he 7th. And that will usher in the 10 horn fallen angel rule.
