Wars and Rumors of Wars

Matthew 24:6-7 (New King James Version)

"And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places."

Doomsday Articles Reflect Edginess on Iran

by Gil Ronen

Two articles that appeared in internet news sites Sunday morning appear to reflect an atmosphere of edginess in parts of the Israeli public regarding the possibility of a war with Iran and its proxies. One was written by a person who claims to be part of a forum of experts but uses a pseudonym, and the other was written by Udi Pridan, an advertising executive.

An article signed by Haggai Amos, a pseudonym, appeared in the News1 website, under the headline: “Israel will be Attacked by Lebanon and Syria within the Next Two Weeks.”

Amos is identified as a member of the “Israeli Intelligence Forum,” which includes retired members of the intelligence community and former government officials.

Ahmadinejad dismisses US as "unable to beat a small army in Iraq."


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad rejected fears of an attack on Iran, taunting Israel as "too weak to face up to Iran militarily," and the US as unable to beat even a small army in Iraq, speaking in an interview with Al-Jazeera Sunday.

"Israel doesn't have the courage to do it," Ahmadinejad said, "and I do not think its threat is serious." He also stated that "America is not interested in sparking a military confrontation with Iran."

Deputy FM addresses Iranian people in Farsi radio broadcast; calls on Iranian people to protest 'aggressive dictatorial regime' that denies its citizens their civil rights

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said that regional war initiated by Iran was a distinct possibility, adding that "Israel is committed to defending its citizens and if attacked will act accordingly." The comments, released Tuesday, came in a Farsi language broadcast on Israel Radio in which Ayalon addressed the people of Iran, taking calls and answering questions . The broadcast was originally aired on Monday.

"A fear exists that Iran – as it becomes more pressured by sanctions – will goad those under its patronage in Hizbullah and Hamas to initiate military action against Israel. There’s also a possibility that Iran will make a military move against the Arab Gulf states and harm the flow of oil to the world, in which case the entire situation will degrade into widespread confrontations. Remember that the sanctions are aimed against Iran’s efforts to arm itself with nuclear weapons, and if they don’t elicit results, the United States and other nations might consider other options."

While Israel is hoping for a peaceful resolution to Iran's nuclear ambitions, the Jewish state is also preparing for "a time of war," declared a Knesset member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's ruling Likud party.

Danny Danon

"We are prepared for all risks," said Likud Knesset Member Danny Danon. "And I think our enemies should know that even though we are speaking of peace, we are getting ready for a time of war, as well."

Danon, the deputy speaker of Israel's parliament, was speaking in a radio interview with WND senior reporter Aaron Klein, who hosts an investigative program on New York's WABC 770 AM Radio.

Danon hinted that Israel may take action if the world does not stop the Iranian nuclear threat, recalling Israel's lone strike on Iraq's nuclear reactor in 1981.

Stated Danon: "We are ready for all scenarios, and we are able to defend our civilian population. I cannot tell you how long we can wait more....

On The Brink Of War
Posted Image
Yom Kippur War. Familiar feeling Photo: GPO

Op-ed: Situation in Israel too reminiscent of way it was on brink of Yom Kippur War

It happened 37 years, 2 months and 14 days ago. Our credible, high-quality intelligence source, codenamed Babylon, summoned Mossad Chief Zvi Zamir to an urgent meeting in London and delivered the unbelievable warning: A war will break out tomorrow....

...War will be worse this time
Even without Babylon, who fell to his death since then, we must not ignore the following prediction: A war shall break out tomorrow; and if not tomorrow, the next day. Tactically, it will not look like the 1973 war, but it will be stimulated by the same state of affairs: Diplomatic impasse, pushing the Arabs into a corner, a response to domestic pressure (popular unrest, regaining the lost honor,) and the pulling of strings behind the scenes by an interested power (back then it was the Soviet Union, this time it’s Iran.)

The tanks and ground maneuvers will be replaced by ballistic missiles and guerilla operations. It doesn’t really matter, and to a great extent it will prompt worse results, as most of the casualties will be civilians rather than soldiers.

The author of the article, Uri Misgav, makes the same serious mistake that all the New Age, starry eyed, peace-nics do:

He believes in the NWO.
He believes in TPTB.
He believes in the Obama's of this world.
He believes what is written by the MSM.
He has drunk the koolaide.

"Israel, which shrugs off the closing window of opportunity vis-à-vis the Palestinians. Israel, which is completely indifferent to the ongoing impasse on the Syrian track despite Bashar Assad’s signals. Israel, which for seven years now has ignored the Arab League’s Saudi peace initiative."

There has never been any window of opportunity with the Palestinians.
There has never been any clear signals from Bashar.
The Arab league's Saudi Peace Plan is a lie and for Israel, pure suicide.


"A complacent and haughty Israel not only refrained from seriously looking into the plethora of diplomatic options at its doorstep, it also failed to initiate its own peace plan. At this time, we may indeed be dazed by our daily troubles and drugged by the reality shows on TV, yet the first missile will wake us up to reality."

Uri Misgav lives in a dream world and is deluded by the "Liar".
Israel HAS presented its own peace plan many times, its own proposals,
only to have them rejected out of hand.
He is deluded into thinking there EXISTS a "plethora of diplomatic options".
Was he born yesterday?
No nation has tried as hard as Israel to secure peace with its neighbors
over the past 62 years.
Israel's enemies have made it abundantly clear they do not want peace with israel,
they want a Middle East WITHOUT Israel.

Uri Misgav needs to lay off the ganja.

One thing he said that is indeed true:

"the first missile will wake us up to reality."


That is, I am afraid, what it will take, and hopefully restore the fear of the Lord into the hearts of Am Israel so that they will take His word seriously.

Iran builds new Eastern Front in Iraq against Israel, Jordan

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report January 6, 2011, 3:07 PM (GMT+02:00)

Iraq's radical Moqtada Sadr ready to move in

The urgent phone call Jordan's King Abdullah II put in to Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Wednesday Jan. 5 dealt only marginally with stalled diplomacy with the Palestinians. The king pressed for answers on what Jerusalem and Amman can do to curb Iran's advancing domination of Iraq in the face of America's inaction.

Referring to Hizballah's role, Abdullah commented to Netanyahu: First Iran's missiles had you jammed from the north and the south, now Iran and Hizballah are cornering you from the east. The Americans are not lifting a finger to stop this happening."
The call, which came through the day before the Israeli prime minister met Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak for lunch at Sharm al Sheikh, elicited no real practical replies. Netanyahu confirmed that Israel still stood by the guarantee of support its armed forces and security services had granted the Hashemite Kingdom and its ruler for the past 60 years.

Both the king and the prime minister appreciated that words are not enough. Since both their military and strategic policies are synchronized with Washington, the total disintegration of American strategic positions in Baghdad Wednesday, Jan 5, was an alarming setback to both Jerusalem and Amman.

On that day, the anti-US radical Iraqi Shiite cleric Muqtada Sadr, a close friend and ally of Hizballah's leader Hassan Nasrallah, came marching home from self-imposed exile in Iran, and the new Iranian foreign minister Ali Akbar Salehi paid his first visit to Baghdad – both in full sight of 50,000 US troops.

Sadr was greeted by thousands of supporters on his return to his old stronghold in the holy city of Najef south of Baghdad three years after his armed militia was defeated in bloody revolts against US forces.

The two arrivals from Iran, the cleric and the diplomat, made it plain that Tehran has Iraq by the throat and plans to impose on Baghdad its regime structure, which rests on two focii, the political capital and the clergy. Prime Minister Nouri Maliki is already in Iran's pocket; he is beholden to the radical Sadr's support for his appointment. The same cleric – and therefore Iran - will control his fate - both by means of the 40-member Sadrist faction in parliament and the authority he wields from his seat in the religious city of Najef.
Tehran has also not neglected to carve out a position of influence in Baghdad for its Lebanese protégé, Hizballah, whose officers and instructors have been training the commanders of Sadr's powerful militia, the Mahdi Army, alongside Iranian instructors.
The two ultra-radical Shiite leaders, Sadr and Nasrallah, are now bound closer together than ever before in an adventure for bringing Iraq under pro-Iranian Shiite domination. Iraq's neighbors, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, could only shudder at the sight of the two black-turbaned Shiite extremists taking charge of Iraq on behalf of Revolutionary Iran against no opposition.

This pair and Maliki have taken out of the hands of Washington and Baghdad the decision on whether a reduced US force stays on in Iraq after the main force departs in 11 months' time. Moqtada Sadr has vowed to remove every last American from Iraqi soil and no one shows any sign of stopping him. US troops will be replaced by Shiite-dominated Iraqi forces, the Shiite militias commanded and funded by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Al Qods Brigades and Hizballah militia detachments transferred from Lebanon.
Iran will in the coming months consolidate the Shiite takeover over Iraq. Hizballah will win a place in the sun and strategic depth after being squeezed between Syria, Israel and the sea.
After US troops exit Iraq, the Iranians will be able to deploy their missiles and Hizballah's rockets in the bases the Americans leave behind in Iraq and point them at Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

I wasn't focusing on his personal views when I posted the article, but that there is a sense of what is to come...and many are expecting the same things, even though life goes on as usual. There seems to be a consensus among many now, that war is looming for Israel.

In the news...

Report: Hezbollah simulates Beirut takeover
Arab media outlets report Shiite group held drill simulating takeover of Lebanese capital, surroundings after Hariri indictments are filed. Among the targets – United Nations headquarters in Lebanon.

It seems to me that Iran is aching to cause a war with Israel, and bring about their 12th Imam Mahdi.



MEDVEDEV MAKES HISTORIC TRIP TO THE EPICENTER, RECOGNIZES PALESTINIAN STATE, AVOIDS ISRAEL, DEEPENS ALLIANCE WITH IRAN...

UPDATED: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev today began an historic Middle East tour. He is meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and other Palestinian leaders in the West Bank. Then he will meet with King Abdullah and other Jordanian leaders in Amman. While he canceled his scheduled visit to Israel, Medvedev did speak by phone with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad yesterday. The two are taking steps to deepen the alliance between their two countries and coordinate their Mideast policies. “Russia is ready for all cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Iran,” said Medvedev.

Prior to the trip, Israeli officials were reportedly particularly concerned that Russian leaders might unilaterally recognize a Palestinian state, as a series of Latin American countries have recently done. CNN reports: “Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat called Medvedev’s trip a ‘historic state visit’ adding that ‘the message to the world is that the Palestinians are ready for statehood and independence.’” Their fears were confirmed on Tuesday. “Russia recognized an independent Palestinian state in 1988 and they would continue to do so today, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday,” reported Haaretz. “‘We made our decision then and we have not changed it today,’ Medvedev said during a press conference after meeting with the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank city of Jericho….One [Israeli foreign] ministry official said that Russian recognition of a Palestinian state would be a severe blow to Israel that would cause a domino effect of other states following Russia’s lead, including China.”

Western military fleets are heading to Lebanon & Israel's army is on full alert


24 Jan 2011
Hezbollah, the armed Iranian-Syrian terrorist proxy, is resorting to all sorts of force, terrorism, intimidation, threats, bribery, division, sectarianism, and instigation to install a new puppet government in Lebanon after toppling on January 13/2010 the Hariri national unity one in response to direct orders from its two Axis of Evil supporters, Syria and Iran.

In a report that was published today in the Kuwaiti daily Alseyiasi, veteran analyst and journalist Hamid Gheriafi wrote that many Western and Arabic countries have been lately issuing urgent travel warnings cautioning their citizens who are residing in Lebanon to take the highest required measures to avoid being targeted by Syria's and Hezbollah's armed groups and advising them not to travel deep into Lebanon's southern and Bekaa Valley regions or to go to Beirut areas where there are Sunni Shiite tensions.

Cairo shock: Egyptians riot against Mubarak
Tags: Egypt Mubarak riots
DEBKAfile Special Report January 25, 2011, 11:46 PM (GMT+02:00) Tags: Egypt Mubarak riots

Cairo is unprepared for so much anger

More than 100,000 turned out Tuesday, Jan. 25 in central Cairo and other Egyptian cities for stormy demonstrations such as Egypt has not seen for more than a quarter century. Airing many grievances, they called on President Hosni Mubarak to resign after 30 years in power. Officials said three people had been killed in clashes between stone-throwing demonstrators and policemen using tear gas, water cannon and night sticks – two demonstrators and a policeman. debkafile's sources report the number is higher and, while no figure was given for the injured, our sources estimate that there were at least 150.

After dark Tuesday, the authorities announced that Mubarak's supporters would mount a counter-demonstration the following day. A collision between the two camps might well lead to further upheavals.
The anti-government movement mustered its biggest show of strength at central Cairo's Liberation Square. The authorities estimate the figure at 10,000. debkafile sources say it was at least 30,000. Some 10,000 also rallied in Alexandria with thousands more in the cities of the Delta and along the Suez Canal.

The government and security forces were not prepared for these numbers, the extent of the unrest or the force of the demonstrators' anger. They had counted on their warning Monday night that all demonstrators faced arrests to deter many from joining the protests. Instead of making good on this warning, the Egyptian police at first stood by quietly and watched the protesters sounding of. But when hundreds broke through the police phalanx and ran toward the parliament building, they were told to use rubber bullets, stun grenades and tear gas.

A mass melee resulted such as Cairo has not seen since 1977 when mass riots forced Anwar Sadat to back down from bread price hikes.

Cairo remained tense Tuesday night after some 15,000 protesters decided to stage a vigil in Liberation Square in protest against police violence.
debkafile's Cairo sources report that the organizers plan to keep their protest going non-stop to absorb all the non-religious opposition elements in the country. So far, the Islamic parties led by the Muslim Brotherhood have ordered their followers not to join in. If this order is changed, the Mubarak regime will be in trouble.
Further north, Tuesday also saw fierce Sunni-Christian riots across Lebanon against Prime Minister-designate Najib Miqati, who was attacked as a pawn of Hizballah and Iran. Anti-government outbreaks also continued in the streets of Tunisia and Jordan. For the first time in decades of Middle East history, Arab streets are willing to battle incumbent regimes and brave the security forces ranged against them.
