Israel texts to warn of missile strikes
The Telegraph ^ | 8/12/2012

A nationwide SMS system for warning the public of an imminent missile attack was being tested in Israel on Sunday as new intelligence on a possible strike on Iran was leaked.

With front page stories in two papers suggesting Tehran had made progress towards the manufacture and assembly of a nuclear warhead, Israel's Home Front Command began final tests of a public warning system which is expected to be operational by September.

"The Home Front Command will today start conducting nationwide testing of the 'Personal Message' alert system, which will end on Thursday," said a statement indicating that SMS texts in Hebrew, Arabic, English and Russian would be sent to subscribers on Israel's three main networks: Cellcom, Pelephone and Orange.

The idea is that the SMS system could be used to warn the population of an imminent missile attack by Iran or Lebanon's Hezbollah militia, which could become a reality if Israel decides to mount a pre-emptive military strike on nuclear facilities in Iran.

Israel believes the Islamic republic is trying to develop a military nuclear capability under the guise of its civilian programme which it says would pose an existential threat

Luke 17:31

King James Version (KJV)

31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house,
let him not come down to take it away:
and he that is in the field,
let him likewise not return back.

I hear the sound of war drums growing louder! When the blow comes it will be unexpected and sudden—I do not think the USA can keep out of it—our people will be attacked—maybe more attacks in the US herself. This will be the war to end all wars. The us needs to think of ways to pull our citizens out of Israel is it looks like a bloodbath. Next seven days should be most dangerous—or so my Ouija Board says....

The events will certainly move rapidly during the Great Tribulation. Such as the world cannot imagine. A Bible will be worth more than 1,000 lbs of gold in those days.

I think it no accident that the Apostle Paul referred to “birth pains” (in context).

Ordinarily, a woman gestates for 269 days, and then in the last few hours of that 270th day, things move very, very quickly. Less than 1/3 of 1% or so of the total time.

International Standard Version (©2008)

When people say, “There is peace and security,” destruction will strike them as suddenly as labor pains come to a pregnant woman, and they will not be able to escape.

Interesting that the ISV notes the statement on ‘peace and security’.

With all of the cellphones around, that would be a critical system to have...as long as cell towers still existed.

While its a national system, it would be interesting if other people in the world could sign up for those alerts. Imagine sitting in a Chili’s restaurant in Podunk, SC, when the balloon goes up. You get a text saying Israel is being attacked. Talk about being on the edge of history.

I just wonder if Iran has a supply of heavy water because it can be use as a moderator in a reactor with natural uranium from which plutonium can be extracted. No enrichment required.
