Skip to comments.[Defense Minister] Barak declares special situation in all Israeli territory
Posted on 11/14/2012 10:15:12 AM PST by topher
Defense Minister Ehud Barak has declared a special situation in all Israeli territory, covering all Israeli cities up to a radius of 40 kilometers around the Gaza Strip.
The decision will have a number of effects.
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 its 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.”
Say what ???
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.
Israel is not going to repeat the Nazis marching Israelis into the boxcars like sheep scene in the Middle East ever. Israel will launch every and anything they have at their Muslim Murderers, rather than be annihilated by the Muslims?????
Iron Dome successfully intercepts 13 rockets fired from the #Gaza Strip. #PillarOfDefense
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)
Thanks for keeping us up to date.
Breaking: Israeli Navy has struck terror sites in the #Gaza Strip.
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.
I pray that you are right on all accounts.
The angels are prepared...
Numerous times, we find the angels acting as warriors that make up Gods 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 Ellishas servant was fearful of the army that surrounded them, he asked the Lord to open the young mans eyes so that he could see the mountains FULL of horses and chariots of fire(2 Kings 6:17).
They are *not* going to be pushed out, He has said so, and He will prevail...
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...
How long can the population of Egypt tread water?
Jerusalem Post says 15 rockets intercepted (Jerusalem Post is quoting Channel 2).
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?
From the Guardian live site;
“Syrian rebels may have more powerful shoulder-mounted surface-to-air missiles than previously thought, if photographs posted by Brown Moses (Eliot Higgins) on his blog are correct.
