Posted on 11/14/2012 10:15:12 AM PST by topher
Defense Minister Ehud Barak has declared a special situation in all Israeli territory, covering all Israeli cities up to a radius of 40 kilometers around the Gaza Strip.
The decision will have a number of effects.
Very short article.
Yes, Go Israel The Lord is with you!
I wanted to say, not to worry, we have your back.
With the Kenyan in the Oval office, I didn’t want to lie.
Israel’s on it’s own for the time being.
Didn’t mean to imply God wouldn’t be with them, and I believe that’s enough.
The dominos have begun to fall. I hope all the Jews who voted for Obama are happy with their decision.
I hesitate to post this. Maybe I shouldn’t. But from a purely objectively strategic postion.... well....
Let’s just say, Israel could be in a uniquely desperate situation if certain esacalation caused other neighboring countries to get into the fight.
Think about the allies of the allies that could be involved and supplying weapons and support to nations that would intervene on behalf of the Palestinians. There is no threat of American intervention or defense. And nobody cares about US relations or influence anymore. Many of the deterences that used to exist for enemies of Isreal aren’t there anymore. I hope they don’t realize this.
Iran could become a secondary concern for the nation of Isreal in short order. I hope they are prepared for that.
Pray for Israel.
I hope it was an “attack ANY one of these and you’d better get some 50,000 SPF lotion!”......
Israel, if backed into a corner in which they are relatively assured Barack HUSSEIN Obama will desert them (even work against them), has the Nuclear delivery capacity to turn every major Muslim city anywhere near them into GLASS. Be assured of that.
You are right, we do have their back ‘in prayer’!
Our nation/majority may have succumbed to evil but not God’s own.
They are protecting what Faithful God gave them and they know it.
Israel is never on it’s own..The G-d of Abraham, Issac and Jacob has always had their back..
I know you, so yes I knew you implied it! Once you said, Go Israel, you didn’t have to say much more! I tend to use alot more words.
Egypt has just said it will respond to any “assault” on the Palestinians, who have been hurling rockets into Israel for the last few days. The Israelis have defended themselves, and today they got one of the leaders of this with a drone attack.
So that, in the mind of Egypt, was an “assault,” and now Hamas has “declared war” and the implication is that Egypt has joined them.
Who knows if this is just bluster. Morsi is nuts, but I’m not sure he’d use Egypt’s powerful American-supplied weapons on Israel quite yet or not. I guess we’ll know within a few hours.
Thanks. Glad you understood.
I agree with your take on it too.
Initial reports indicate that the Iron Dome has intercepted a number of rockets above a major Israeli city. #Gaza #PillarOfDefense
Reports #Israeli gunboats are shelling northwest #Gaza - RT @TomBarton_RT; LIVE UPDATES http://on.rt.com/1d6yjw
So does Pakistan. That's not exactly a nation friendly to Israel and they can be bought with relative ease. A nuclear strike from Israel would prompt retaliation and escalation into a global conflict. Iran would love this. Bet Russia would jump in.
Is Isreal's nuclear capability enough to disuade escalation? Islamic nations have no qualms with sacrificing their own for Allah. It's the reason only the preverbial adults should have nuclear weapons. They would use the judiciously. But it would not be justified under any circumstances in the global media regardless of whether it was truly a "last resort" for the survival of their nation. I fear a global retaliation would ensue against Israel.
I hope this does not evolve into a "no-win scenario" for our brothers and sisters in Israel.
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak 07/2012;
The U.S.-Israel relationship is as strong as its ever been
“But I should tell you honestly that this administration under President Obama is doing in regard to our security more than anything that I can remember in the past.”
Say what ???
Praise God for that.
Now everyone knows they are SOLO and they have no idea what is up ahead but, IN FAITH, going for it anyway!!
So THE WORLD can see how GOD is THE ONLY ONE who can/will help Israel.
And the same goes for America but too many chose EVIL in fear - and ‘their idol’ is in opposition to God.
Israel is not going to repeat the Nazis marching Israelis into the boxcars like sheep scene in the Middle East ever. Israel will launch every and anything they have at their Muslim Murderers, rather than be annihilated by the Muslims?????
Iron Dome successfully intercepts 13 rockets fired from the #Gaza Strip. #PillarOfDefense
Personally, I think you are very mistaken on this. There is too much history (personally, with American Jews even though they vote liberal) for an Israel/Pakistan question to fall on the side of Pakistan. No way. Too many questions about Pakistan's involvement in support of Taliban, Al Qaeda, harboring Bin Laden, et al. You also neglected INDIA who has an itchy trigger finger with respect to Pakistan.
Post #17 represents the scenario I fear. If egypt get’s involved, Russia will move aid Egypt because it goes against America’s interest. They could count on support from Iran as well. Pakistan always picks the winning side. Turkey? Saudi Arabia? Lybia and Syria are kind of busy at the moment and hopefully impotent.
This could get bad. Obama is going on vacation tonight after his press conference. (just assuming)
Thanks for keeping us up to date.
Breaking: Israeli Navy has struck terror sites in the #Gaza Strip.
A good portion of Israel's security has depended on the implied support and defense capabilities of the US. It behooves Israel to remind everyone that America will still come to their defense. I expect they are hoping to disuade Egyptian intervention.
I pray that you are right on all accounts.
The angels are prepared...
Numerous times, we find the angels acting as warriors that make up Gods great, invisible army. The expression, Lord of hosts is used over 200 times in the Old Testament which literally means: Lord of a multitude of organized soldiers.
When Ellishas servant was fearful of the army that surrounded them, he asked the Lord to open the young mans eyes so that he could see the mountains FULL of horses and chariots of fire(2 Kings 6:17).
They are *not* going to be pushed out, He has said so, and He will prevail...
Iron Dome [missiles] intercept 15 rockets
Since at least one rocket hit a shopping center, there must be quite a few rockets being launched.
Hopefully, IAF or IDF will be able to take out the rockets/rocket launchers. May be what the Israeli Navy is doing...
How long can the population of Egypt tread water?
Jerusalem Post says 15 rockets intercepted (Jerusalem Post is quoting Channel 2).
Benghazi was probably a signal to the muslims. “Don’t worry about us responding when you attack Israel. We won’t even respond if you attack Americans.”
And they’ll be dealing with a SOS who lied about the attack to protect the muslims. They’ve been given numerous signals. I hope Israel can see them, too.
So, who thinks Israel will strike within the next few months?
From the Guardian live site;
“Syrian rebels may have more powerful shoulder-mounted surface-to-air missiles than previously thought, if photographs posted by Brown Moses (Eliot Higgins) on his blog are correct.
Michelle Malkin has a story that Families of American Service Personnel want answers about the attack on Camp Bastion on September 14
You a Rear Admiral relieved of command while in command of a carrier task force headed for the Persian Gulf.
Then there is Bengazi-gate.
Then there is talk of John Kerry as DoD head (sounds like the Democrats want to rub the noses of American Service Personnel in the dirt with that move).
Please pray those protecting America. Those who must be Harm's Way with this Commander-in-Chief need our prayers.
Do you think they would blow the Aswan Dam?
They report only 13 rockets intercepted (UPDATE 11/14/2012 20:56 time in Israel)
Barak said that the IDF operations wiped out most of the long-range fajr rockets, and dealt significant blows to the terrorist infrastructure in the Gaza Strip.
Sadly, they are very well aware of that little detail.
If the IDF considered that it was completely necessary for the survival of Israel, they would do it in a heartbeat, in my opinion.
Backing Israel into that kind of corner would most emphatically *NOT* be a paying proposition...
In my youth, I lived in NYC and meet many survivors of the Nazis, most of whom left their homes with what they could carry.
I do not understand the Jewish affiliation with the Dems! One person said it was due to Henry Ford’s comments, but that was close to a hundred years ago. The current democrat administration is much more anti-Israel.
Anyway, Give ‘em Hell, IDF!
First order of business, he needs to change his last name.
The whole world will be against Israel and that includes US.
The Great Middle Eastern War has started, folks.. Odd that that we're wrapped up in the sex scandal and the fiscal cliff. A MASSIVE war has begun, starting with a major hit on Hamas. Won't be long until we have a full-fledged War on an epic scale. It has started. Few realize it. Very odd. This is going to escalate within hours.. 'Shock and Awe' will be redefined.
