Israel Gets Ready To Strike At Iran's Nuclear Sites - Media
RIA Novosti ^ | March 29, 2010

Posted on 03/28/2010 6:37:43 PM PDT by Strategy

Israeli air force have practiced simulated strikes at Iran's nuclear facilities using airspace of at least two unidentified Arab countries, a newspaper published in east Jerusalem reported.

According to Al Manar paper, several Israeli combat jets carried out in late February bombing drills "targeting" known Iranian nuclear sites "in two Arab countries in the Persian Gulf, which are close territorially with the Islamic republic and cooperate with Israel on this issue."

Al Manar said Israel had received the permission to use the airspace from the top leadership of these countries and Washington "gave a blessing" to Tel Aviv to conduct these exercises.

Saudi Arabia is almost certainly one of the Persian Gulf nations...Which might be the other? Egypt allowed Israeli ships pass thru the Suez last year, so Egypt is at least tacitly on board, but they aren’t on the Persian Gulf... Oh, and WHO in Washington “gave ther blessing” to these exercises? Barack? Not very freakin’ likely...

a.) NObody in Washington has "given their blessing" to Israel to take out the Iranian nuke program and Netanyahu wouldn't give a good damn if they did OR didn't.

b.) In light of the U.S. reportedly holding back bunker buster weapons from Israel, don't be surprised when the IDF helps Iran acquire some nukes, but not in the way those little Persian pricks were hoping for.

WHEN Israel strikes Iran, this could be the ‘hook’ in the jaw that Ezekiel talked about... bringing the ‘confederation’ together that will co-jointly attack Israel. Ezekiel 38 &39. God will obliterate those haters in the hills of Israel. Just sayin’.

Tomorrow, under a full moon, Jews around the world will celebrate the first day of Pesach. Jews will celebrate eight days.

Evil can’t stand this situation and frequently attacks Jews during this period.

Enter the muslim-in-chief who got a running start against the Jewish people this year.

What predictions do people have for what barack hussein obama amalek will attempt against Jews and Israel during this period?

All entries must be submitted in advance of events, in case of identical predictions the earlier one takes precedence, prizes awarded based on accuracy, closeness of predicted to actual times and general prophesy factor (P).

Unlimited entries are allowed, just reply to this post.

If his plane would crash and Pelosi’ plane would crash and Reid’s plane would crash and Biden’s plane would crash would that qualify as an “act of God”?

It would be an act of Hillary, not God.

If Obama was gone, if Biden and Pelosi were gone, and if the president pro tempore of the Senate.....Robert Byrd....was also gone, Hillary would be the president.
God forbid.

Exactly what I said a couple days ago. Bebe will do what he has to do regardless if B.O. doesn’t like it. When he gets it over with maybe he could invite Obama to Israel for a state dinner at the local McDonald’s.

Only way it will be considered a US stike is if Massad tapes Obummer to one of the nukes they plan on dropping.




F-15 at base. Notice the shoot-downs marks on the noses of the jets

Think those planes are something on deck? They deliver fear and rightousness when the need calls!

This is all publicity and hype. Since when do simulated exercises require Washington’s “blessings”. Since when is a simulated exercise newsworthy. Nothing of the kind is about to happen any time soon. El Manar is reporting a press release as fact.

Yes, that's the F-15I Ra'am (Hebrew = thunder), an Israeli variant of the Strike Eagle.

It has 2 CFTs and can carry three 600 gal drop tanks and up to ~17000 lb of ordnance, twice that of the B-24 Liberator.

That's one hefty load to get off the ground.

I remember in a documentary film about the bombing of the Baghdad reactor that the Israeli F-16s were so loaded down with fuel and two large bombs apiece, that they used virtually the entire runway just to take off with little to spare.

Given the greater distance to Iran, the F-15I, and presumably the F-16I, would shed a lot of weight as well as their drop tanks, before entering hostile airspace.

Too bad Israel doesn't have and B-1Bs. Would make things a bit easier.
