Russia sent a detachment of ships of the Black Sea Fleet to the coast of the Gaza Strip in order to evacuate Russians in case of escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, a source in the main command of the RF Navy said.
"The detachment of combat ships of the Black Sea Fleet, including the Guards missile cruiser Moskva, the patrol ship Smetliviy, large landing ships Novocherkassk and Saratov, the sea tug MB-304 and the big sea tanker Ivan Bubnov, got the order to remain in the designated area of the Eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea for a possible evacuation of Russian citizens from the area of the Gaza strip in case of escalation of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict", -the Agency's interlocutor said.

Exactly. It’s all coming together fast, isn’t it?
It sure seems to be. Things seems to be falling into place....
1. They need THAT many ships for how many Russians in the Gaza Strip? Are there even 25 Russians in Gaza?
This is simply trying to intimidate the Israelis.
2. I wish OUR country had done at least this when our consulate in Benghazi was attacked and the Ambassador and three others were killed.
Shows you which nation is a paper tiger, huh?
Seems whenever the Russians deploy a few ships they send an “ocean-going tug”. Speaks volumes about the reliability & serviceability of Russian combat vessels.

Is this another post in Breaking, hit and run? Do you have an opinion today?
Do not today’s writers and readers know that a “detachment of ships” is a “flotilla”?
the only thing holding Russian Wessels (LOL) together is the paint
Why are there Russians in the Gaza Strip that have to be evacuated?
Leave them in place, just like the Americans did at Benghazi.
I suppose, with the caliper of writers coming out of journalism schools today, we should be thankful they're not calling them assault weapons.
The Russians always vacation in Gaza. You know thousands flock there during holiday. Great shops, restaurants, bars, night clubs, beautiful Mediterranean beeches. //sarcasm off//
Good time for Israel to practice Naval defense on some Russian ships
Guaranteed that the Russians will turn around and run if one of those ships are blasted by Israel. The Russians are a lot of bluster....but once popped in the mouth they turn around and run crying
31 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the Lord!
2 Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity.
3 Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the Lord shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.
4 For thus hath the Lord spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the Lord of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.
5 As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.
6 Turn ye unto him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.
7 For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.
8 Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited.
9 And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, saith the Lord, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.
There are a bunch of russians in Gaza?
How bout that
And the formal training of the Rusky Navy.

That is exactly what I thought when I read the article. It is chilling. When I read first read prophecy over 25 years ago I could never envision how and why America would be among the countries “coming against Israel”. Unfortunately, now I know.
Well, that’s a relief!
I mean, considering that we’re going to be light on our naval presence in the region for some time with all those extraordinary repairs we’ll be making...
Just yesterday there was a thread about ours being turned back to port in Virginia. That flexibility is working to well for the kenyan.
No, they are not joining Obama’s “rescue fleet”. We already pulled our carriers out of there. See this: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/162401#.UK59zVIZRQR

anyone correct me if I am wrong, but in WWI and WWII, the US, Britain, Japanese and Germans engaged each other in many Naval Battles.
The Russians NEVER did, as far as I know. So, their Naval History of Combat is about zero!
Actually there are parts of Gaze that are quite nice.
It's hard to guage your statement. Are you trying to take their measure?
LOL! You got me. I guess I fall short. :-)
I was always curious as to how/why Russia gets involved in such an attack. I guess I know now.
Now settle down you Israelis. Mind your own business and stop interfering with our allies’ attempts to kill you.
When I was in seminary about 10 years ago, we had a casual discussion with a few professors and they all agreed there were basically three main ideas floating around. 1) The U.S. did not exist any more (the 1/3 of the world that was burned up or too much internal strife or civil war) 2) the U.S. is represented by the lamb with the forked tongue before the throne, meaning we decided to sit the war out 3) or we no longer existed as the same nation, with the same values. At the time, I couldn’t imagine any of these happening. Lately... I would be more surprised if our leaders didn’t help our historic enemies.
Too early. Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17 first.
It has been coming together fast since Paul and those many years before him prophesied. I remember in the 80’s those who thought Gorbachev was the Anti-Christ because of the mark on his forehead and his leadership of the Soviet Union, America’s foremost enemy at the time. Won’t be long now!
Back in the 1980’s, the IDF found tunnels in Lebanon dug by the Russians.
They also found documents, plans, supplies for a full scale invasion of teh middle east by Russia.
One object of note that the IDF found: Coffee beans.
Fresh coffee beans.
Coffee beans go bad within three months.
That meant that the Russians had plans to begin their operation at least within three months.
The Israelis going into Lebanon to kick the PLO in the butt derailed that plan.
I’d say Gaza is their backup plan.
Say, do you ever say anything about any articles you post?

Thanks for posting this regardless of others questioning why you didn’t comment.
I’d have missed it otherwise.
Yep. It’s pretty disconcerting.
Civilian rescue ship, lolz
Unless they sent a cruise ship defended by the flotilla this was a military mission
