Muslims waited till after election to attack. Palestinians are MUSLIMS.

This is Islam genociding a different religion (jews/Israel) as Islam genocided 2 million Christian Armenians in 1915 , as Islam genocided countless hundreds of millions of Hindus in India and POkistan. Google it.

War is coming—when Egypt steps in it will spin out of control. Look to see Iran doing something and fighting in the north. Prayers for Israel! What can we do? buy Israeli war bonds! If Obama refuses to act—the good people of the USA should act on their own. Write to your congresspeople to help Israel.

War in the middle east, hostess implodes, unemployment spirals out of control. Reality is about to give America the mother of all bitch slaps about re-electing the boy king. America need not actually be weak to foster instability in the world, it needs only to appear so. And boy does it.

Muslims feel emboldened now that Obama is elected.

To me doesn't look good for Israel. Israel is what a country 20 miles wide surrounded by 56 huge Islamic countries. Hope they do have nuclear weapons . That's the only deterrent against tyranny.

Yes, but until the Time of Jacob’s Trouble begins, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob fights with them. That’s how they are going to win the Psalm 83 and the Ezekiel 38 wars.

Dear friends of Israel we will be praying for all of you..I pray God sends his angels to camp around your whole country and keep you safe..

Our so called President is no where to be found but we all know he is rooting for your enemies..He is hiding in the closet like a fool..I hope God bring down his wrath on the whole bunch of Obamas supporters for voting for this Communist Muslim again..Curses on their whole life ..and on the ones that cheated to get him back in charge..

IT’S COMING.

The whole goal of this crap was the US toppling all these regimes to install “democracy” but, they had no Big Shots to replace them. Hence chaos ensued.

Iran took advantage of that chaos and started increasing funding, arms, supplies and logistics to increase the chaos.

Their goal is to make sure the chaos goes Boom! When that powder keg finally explodes it’s on like Donkey Kong and Syria goes full scale, rolls across Lebanon, grabbing conscripts along the way.

Egypt says Allah Akbar! and throws in with the Syrians.

Next, look for factions in Africa to start making their way to the Egyptian front line.

Attacks to come from small boats launched from the Mediteranian coast lines toward Israel.

Groups who have been squirreling arms and munnitions will appear from Iraq and make their way through Jordan.

King Abdullah will be forced to abdicate and leave. Jordan takes up positions on across the Jordan River.

And I’m not sure but somehow Turkey and Cyprus will get in on the action but, can’t recall what their involvement might be. Only thing I can think of is Moslems support Moslems and maybe Turkey, who has increasingly turned Moslem agitator, despite wanting to be a part of NATO, throws in with the KuhRayZeez or they prove the are worthy of NATO membership and throw in on the right side of this.

Anyway, at the point Jordan had missiles at the waters edge everyone will move in mass to overwhelm Israel by deadenders who are sexually aroused and high on their own death.

I can’t think how we stop that without getting into ourselves and going “Drone” crazy, tomahawk chopping and putting AC 130’s everywhere.

Sadly, we have may have to assert our desire from Saudi Arabia and how knows what happens after that.

It’s gonna be a huge Shit Sandwich and were all gonna have take a bite....

Drat, I was all set to visit Jerusalem. I thought I’d go once President Romney and Bibi took care of Iran. Then I thought we’d go while it is still possible to go. Now we’ll have to take firearms training to be useful to the Israelis. Where do we sign up?

Assuming the Israelis will put a stop to the attacks within the next few days, what is the likelihood that rockets will be fired from southern Lebanon?

Only overseas Jews can join

Israel must know that over here , it is the fired up
evangelical Christians that are , by far, their best source of support . Will they remain stiff necked , eve in the face of being overrun and in need of help?

Pay our tickets ! We will come . Many of us are crack shots already , and old enough to not be overly worried about surviving either .

Thanks.

I think Debka is insanely inaccurate, to the point of requiring back-up sources. Do you have an issue with that?

no issue at all questioning Debka, I know the reputation.

But I’ve been watching this closely for about a week and already had read about most of what they were saying and the parts I hadn’t read about I assumed were logical steps to the ramp up, like the part about the hospitals. I try to read as many English language Israeli news sources as I can when things get stirred up over there.

Sometimes Debka is right on the nose.

Me too. Just read that said rockets are now being fired into Israel from Sinai.

http://www.jpost.com/Headlines/Article.aspx?id=292214

“Terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula launched rockets into Israel Friday night.

The rockets fell near an Israeli village on the southern border, causing some damage, but no injuries.”

When you click to read the full story it goes to something else.

Camp David Accord has a couple months left to go, tops. Probably a *lot* less if it’s starting from Sinai. It was really only a matter of time once Morsi took over, right?

Yes, Debian was full of crap in 2001. They seem to have cleaned up their act. No more Chinese troops, etc. I tend to scan it, and then two days later I see the same thing in the jp.

Not that everything over there is slanted, but it’s worth a glance.

I’d go in a heartbeat.

Years ago I bought (used) an IDF ammo box, I have had more offers for that thing.

BTW, is there an Israel ping list?

Interesting question. If there is an Israel ping list, I’d certainly like to be on it. I haven’t noticed any pinging going on in these recent threads.

I have noticed while reading these current Israel threads that we have been missing at least one who posts regularly to Israel topics who actually lives in Israel.
He/She usually is the one who starts the threads.

I’ve been wondering if he/she doesn’t have access, or chooses not to post while active military campaigns are going on.

That could very well be the case. Perhaps we should start another ping list for Israel for the time being.
