Sounds like a special warning in the Gaza area, but Israel is not a very large country, so I imagine most of the country may be affected.

Very short article.

I wanted to say, not to worry, we have your back.

With the Kenyan in the Oval office, I didn’t want to lie.

Israel’s on it’s own for the time being.

I hesitate to post this. Maybe I shouldn’t. But from a purely objectively strategic postion.... well....

Let’s just say, Israel could be in a uniquely desperate situation if certain esacalation caused other neighboring countries to get into the fight.

Think about the allies of the allies that could be involved and supplying weapons and support to nations that would intervene on behalf of the Palestinians. There is no threat of American intervention or defense. And nobody cares about US relations or influence anymore. Many of the deterences that used to exist for enemies of Isreal aren’t there anymore. I hope they don’t realize this.

Iran could become a secondary concern for the nation of Isreal in short order. I hope they are prepared for that.

Pray for Israel.

Israel, if backed into a corner in which they are relatively assured Barack HUSSEIN Obama will desert them (even work against them), has the Nuclear delivery capacity to turn every major Muslim city anywhere near them into GLASS. Be assured of that.

Egypt has just said it will respond to any “assault” on the Palestinians, who have been hurling rockets into Israel for the last few days. The Israelis have defended themselves, and today they got one of the leaders of this with a drone attack.

So that, in the mind of Egypt, was an “assault,” and now Hamas has “declared war” and the implication is that Egypt has joined them.

Who knows if this is just bluster. Morsi is nuts, but I’m not sure he’d use Egypt’s powerful American-supplied weapons on Israel quite yet or not. I guess we’ll know within a few hours.

So does Pakistan. That's not exactly a nation friendly to Israel and they can be bought with relative ease. A nuclear strike from Israel would prompt retaliation and escalation into a global conflict. Iran would love this. Bet Russia would jump in.

Is Isreal's nuclear capability enough to disuade escalation? Islamic nations have no qualms with sacrificing their own for Allah. It's the reason only the preverbial adults should have nuclear weapons. They would use the judiciously. But it would not be justified under any circumstances in the global media regardless of whether it was truly a "last resort" for the survival of their nation. I fear a global retaliation would ensue against Israel.

I hope this does not evolve into a "no-win scenario" for our brothers and sisters in Israel.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak 07/2012;

“The U.S.-Israel relationship is as strong as it’s ever been”

“But I should tell you honestly that this administration under President Obama is doing in regard to our security more than anything that I can remember in the past.”

Praise God for that.

Now everyone knows they are SOLO and they have no idea what is up ahead but, IN FAITH, going for it anyway!!

So THE WORLD can see how GOD is THE ONLY ONE who can/will help Israel.

And the same goes for America but too many chose EVIL in fear - and ‘their idol’ is in opposition to God.

Personally, I think you are very mistaken on this. There is too much history (personally, with American Jews even though they vote liberal) for an Israel/Pakistan question to fall on the side of Pakistan. No way. Too many questions about Pakistan's involvement in support of Taliban, Al Qaeda, harboring Bin Laden, et al. You also neglected INDIA who has an itchy trigger finger with respect to Pakistan.

Post #17 represents the scenario I fear. If egypt get’s involved, Russia will move aid Egypt because it goes against America’s interest. They could count on support from Iran as well. Pakistan always picks the winning side. Turkey? Saudi Arabia? Lybia and Syria are kind of busy at the moment and hopefully impotent.

This could get bad. Obama is going on vacation tonight after his press conference. (just assuming)

“But I should tell you honestly that this administration under President Obama is doing in regard to our security more than anything that I can remember in the past.”

A good portion of Israel's security has depended on the implied support and defense capabilities of the US. It behooves Israel to remind everyone that America will still come to their defense. I expect they are hoping to disuade Egyptian intervention.

The angels are prepared...

Numerous times, we find the angels acting as warriors that make up God’s great, invisible army. The expression, “Lord of hosts” is used over 200 times in the Old Testament which literally means: Lord of a multitude of organized soldiers.

When Ellisha’s servant was fearful of the army that surrounded them, he asked the Lord to open the young man’s eyes so that he could see the mountains FULL of horses and chariots of fire(2 Kings 6:17).

The Iron Dome missile system is in action against rockets being fired by the Hamas. From the Jerusalem Post:

Iron Dome [missiles] intercept 15 rockets

Since at least one rocket hit a shopping center, there must be quite a few rockets being launched.

Hopefully, IAF or IDF will be able to take out the rockets/rocket launchers. May be what the Israeli Navy is doing...

Benghazi was probably a signal to the muslims. “Don’t worry about us responding when you attack Israel. We won’t even respond if you attack Americans.”

And they’ll be dealing with a SOS who lied about the attack to protect the muslims. They’ve been given numerous signals. I hope Israel can see them, too.

So, who thinks Israel will strike within the next few months?

Please pray for our service men and women.

Michelle Malkin has a story that Families of American Service Personnel want answers about the attack on Camp Bastion on September 14

You a Rear Admiral relieved of command while in command of a carrier task force headed for the Persian Gulf.

Then there is Bengazi-gate.

Then there is talk of John Kerry as DoD head (sounds like the Democrats want to rub the noses of American Service Personnel in the dirt with that move).

Please pray those protecting America. Those who must be Harm's Way with this Commander-in-Chief need our prayers.

If the IDF considered that it was completely necessary for the survival of Israel, they would do it in a heartbeat, in my opinion.

Backing Israel into that kind of corner would most emphatically *NOT* be a paying proposition...

In my youth, I lived in NYC and meet many survivors of the Nazis, most of whom left their homes with what they could carry.

I do not understand the Jewish affiliation with the Dems! One person said it was due to Henry Ford’s comments, but that was close to a hundred years ago. The current democrat administration is much more anti-Israel.

Anyway, Give ‘em Hell, IDF!

I predicted that if 0bama got re-elected (which of course he would through fraud), that Israel would commence the war on Iran within DAYS..

The Great Middle Eastern War has started, folks.. Odd that that we're wrapped up in the sex scandal and the fiscal cliff. A MASSIVE war has begun, starting with a major hit on Hamas. Won't be long until we have a full-fledged War on an epic scale. It has started. Few realize it. Very odd. This is going to escalate within hours.. 'Shock and Awe' will be redefined.
