Skip to comments.Echoes of '67: Israel unites
Posted on 05/12/2012 12:12:57 AM PDT by gunsequalfreedom
In May 1967, in brazen violation of truce agreements, Egypt marched 120,000 troops to the Israeli border, blockaded the Straits, abruptly signed a military pact with Jordan and Syria. Pledged to destroy Israel. On June 5, Israel launched a preemptive strike. The Six-Day War. Less remembered. The nationalist opposition was brought into the government. Emergency unity coalition. Forty-five years later, May 7, Netanyahu has done the same thing.

Long live Israel and what it stands for and by the way I am not Jewish
No problem. Our army of diplomats can continue to keep world oil/import peace by floating messages back and forth over the ocean. And we Americans will stay rich forever and ever on our service economy, clean environment and animal worship. And the nations that have developed and mounted nuclear weapons over the past couple of decades will never, ever nuke us, because our western economic rulers of the world are proud and magic.
Looks like we’re going to get to know the new Asia better while reckoning with our own new squalor. Take cover.
“Those counseling Israeli submission, resignation, or just endless patience can no longer dismiss Israels tough stance as the work of irredeemable right-wingers. Not with a government now representing 78 percent of the country.
Netanyahu forfeited September elections that would have given him four more years in power. He chose instead to form a national coalition that guarantees 18 months of stability 18 months during which, if the world does not act to stop Iran, Israel will.
And it will not be the work of one man, one party, or one ideological faction. As in 1967, it will be the work of a nation.”
God bless and protect Israel and her long-suffering people.
If Israel is overrun by the nations, BTW, crawl under a rock and intensify your prayers.
God has declared that no nation shall stand against his chosen people, Israel.
In the long run - yes. But the Nation of Israel has seen lots of bad times over their history with their country destroyed, peoples exiled, etc.
However, I think that the miracle of 1967 has not led to the fullness that Israel is meant to be. Yet.
I remember it well, I reported to Paris Island, S.C. on June 7th 1967. Confused and disoriented we were roused from our sleep at some ungodly hour, the D.I. , kicking over trash cans and screaming at the top of his lungs called to attention in front of our racks the D.I. paced quietly for what seemed to be forever and then announced ..The Jews have just kicked the dogshit out of the A-rabs ! Hit the racks! , and then we went back to sleep as did the whole world. Are we soon to be awakened again ?
Ok, Israel, whatever you grab this time, please learn to not give it back.
Don't like it? Tell it to the Creator. He likes to laugh.
....and push all of it’s enemy inhabitants into the neighboring crap hole, secure it, wall it, and make sure no peace-loving muslims ever enter again.
Here is my take on what will happen before summer.
Here is an updated version of the spreadsheet that accompanies the article.
FR has frequent threads titled “Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem”. While I approve of the sentiment, both from a religious perspective and in the real world, I am praying for real peace, not just for what they have now with ongoing low-level violence. I’m not sure how firm an Israeli action it would take to produce real peace, but I hope and pray that Israel is both united and resolved enough to make that happen sooner rather than later.
Ditto that for me. We all too often forget that Israel is our only reliable ally in the mid-east.If we fail to help them we are not playing with a full deck.
Bibi loves his country and will not stand by and watch the communist, halfrican, mooselimb prick from the USA aid his mortal enemy as they attain nukes for the destruction of Israel.
The early elections would have made clear what he already knew - he would win handily. Dropping them allowed his detractors to save face and get on the right side of history by bumping the unity up to 78% - time for Iranians to migrate away from target-rich environments.
When God started to bring Israel back into the land for the 2nd time in May, 1948: He made it clear that they would stay in the land of Israel through the millenial rule of Jesus Christ our Lord and how her enemies are His enemies and He would destroy them when they come against the land and the City of the Great King, even Jerusalem. This will happen during the wrath of God called the tribulation and He will protect and save Israel from the nations He will cause to come against her for a recompense and reckoning of past sins against Himself and the Jewish peoples worldwide. It is His way of setting up the Kingdom rule of Jesus Christ on the earth for the millenium rule He ordained in the Scriptures.
1Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
2And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
3And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
4Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
5Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
7So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.
9And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:
10So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, saith the Lord GOD.
11And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.
12And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.
13Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.
14And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.
15And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog.
16And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.
17And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
18Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.
19And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.
20Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.
21And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.
22So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward.
23And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword.
24According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.
25Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;
26After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.
27When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;
28Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
29Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
