G-8 'fully believes' Israel will attack Iran, says Italy PM
Haaretz via The Woodward Report ^ | June 27, 2010

Posted on 06/27/2010 10:10:27 AM PDT by honestabe010

World leaders "believe absolutely" that Israel may decide to take military action against Iran to prevent the latter from acquiring nuclear weapons, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said Saturday.

“Iran is not guaranteeing a peaceful production of nuclear power [so] the members of the G-8 are worried and believe absolutely that Israel will probably react preemptively,” Berlusconi told reporters following talks with other Group of Eight leaders north of Toronto...

“Iran is not guaranteeing a peaceful production of nuclear power [so] the members of the G-8 are worried"

Took them long enough to figure it out. What's next, recognition that Hezbollah and Hamas are terorist orgs? Nah, that might be too much sanity to hope for.

They are all hoping they will do it, and will excoriate them if they do. Marxist cowards.

The whole Western World should hang it’s head at deferring the Iran question to Israel.

That little nation will have to wipe Iran’s snotty nose, while the rest of us sit back and sip mint julips.

My parents had the distinct pleasure of living through one of the most glorious times in human history, a time when the world stood up to Nazis and Fascists.

I and my children have the distinction of living through one of least glorious, where the world cowers in the face of hatred for Jews, and Fascism is installed in what used to be the predominant nation on the planet.

We’re circling the drain folks. It’s not too late yet, but we’re getting there on what seems like a refurbished Concord.

... There, fixed it.

World leaders "believe absolutely" that Israel may decide to take military action against Iran.....but then it may not.

The "believe absolutely" rhetoric seems superfluous.

Israel will not attack Iran yet. Only after hitting Hizbullah will they strike.

When they do it, it will very likely trigger a world war. Iran will set loose its surrogates Hezbollah, the Syrians, Lebanon and their own special forces. It will get really ugly from there.

That is why they will hit Hizbullah first (see my post above). Lebanon will do nothing and if they get the message to the Syrians that Israel will leave them alone then the Syrians won’t get involved.

Don’t believe the World War hype.

The charade of negotiations with Iran has been going on long enough - at least 6 years by my count.

Iran has no intention of negotiating. Israel has every intent on remaining in existance.

Get it done Israel - and God speed.

I would wager that Israel’s intel services have concluded that short of using tactical nukes, Iran’s nuclear weapons program is too far along to stop with conventional airstrikes; hence no Israeli airstrikes....

And if Israel WERE to attack Iran, Hussein will IMMEDIATELY jump in to claim CREDIT for both the idea and the OK he had to provide. A good whack on Iran might be the only thing which could prevent the November electoral disaster dems are now facing. And don’t think for one moment that Hussein wouldn’t take this step if he thought it might prevent republicans from taking over the house.

END TIMES, DREAMS, VISIONS, PROPHECY PING LIST LEVEL 1 PING.

BTW . . . Had lunch with a fellow from church . . . former Nazarene . . . asserted, insisted that The Lord impressed on his mind very firmly when he saw [OThuga’s] pic on Yahoo.com . . . that he was the AC. Noted that his St Louis gall friend’s prophetic Mentor insisted the same thing.

I told him I was still skeptical, that I think he’s ‘merely’ a forerunner. We shall see.

Of course, in one sense, Scripture speaks of many such from 2000 years ago to now . . . still, my friend meant THE AC.

They are trying to make sure that Israel attacks Iran. All of them want the problem taken care of - and they want Israel to do the work. Cowards, every last one of them.

Well, if Obama’s the Antichrist, he better start performing his signs and wonders soon - he needs to do something grand and glorious because the contempt for him is growing by the day.

I pretty much agree G.

There are times I think Ears has traits I'd expect from the AC, but I don't think he's him.

But like Q said, he's a forerunner. Everything about BO is antichrist-ian. From his views on life, to Israel, to society, to economics. Everything about him is the antithesis of the teaching in the Bible.

The people wanted THEIR messiah, and BO was going to be it. Well, he seems to be pissing just about everybody off. BUT... he is doing what liberals typically do. He is getting thoughts and ideas and attitudes into the peoples brains, so that when it comes time to really implement them, they will already be ready. Then when THEIR messiah does arrive, all the foundation work will be done to sweep everything right in.

Oh absolutely he's a forerunner. And I believe you're right about how he's getting people ready for the real deal.

When Obama won the election, I knew that this nation was finished and I have seen what I suspected come to fruition - Barack Obama is steadily destroying this country and, while he doesn't believe Scripture and is not aware that he is fulfilling God's prophetic purposes, he is taking us out of the way and when the Antichrist comes to power, America will not be a problem.

INDEED.

Of course, if the Biblical scenario plays out . . .

a mortal wound and a ‘resurrection’ . . . maybe I’d have to consider.

However, I mostly expect the folks who put him in, to take him out as a fall guy for the chaos they assigned him to create.

What a job!

It isn’t going to be about ‘who’ the Anti-Christ will be as much as about the dumbing down of the people to ACCEPT that DECEPTION....and the world’s people are fast being primed just for that. Bo’s election only showed that the American people are ready to be deceived..

One other thing I took note of in your e-mail....You wrote of the “distinctions” between what your parents saw and stood for and what we see in the generations today. That word “distinction” needs to be used often I think, as the lines which were once clear and very distinct have been blurred to the point, in many cases, where there are no distinctions. That can be applied to morality, borders, government responsibility, homes, religion etc. etc.

That's true, and the American people are ready to be deceived and will be even more so as this nation goes further into the abyss.

It is important, though, for people to know the traits of the Antichrist - especially those who will be here after the church is taken.

It is vital that people have that information so even if they reject the doctrine of the Rapture, and the Tribulation, and everything else prophesied by God, they will know the Antichrist for what he is when he comes to power and will take advantage of their one last opportunity to accept Christ's offer of salvation.

Maybe, Though I do question if they will be able to discern who the Anti-Christ is, after the believers are taken , as the great deception God said he would likely be in full swing so that they, those who have already been presented with Christ but rejected Him, will indeed believe that lie.

Those who have been presented with the Gospel of Christ prior to the church being taken will NOT have another opportuntity for salvation during the tribulation..... People who will be saved out of the tribulation are only those who have never heard the Gospel before. The Jewish Christians left to witness to these people will surely be equipped for that task and will undoubtedly know how and in what manner to make the anti-Christ known for who he really is.
