Peres: Israel Has Secret Weapons
Israel Today ^ | Tuesday, October 29, 2013 | Ryan Jones

Posted on 10/30/2013 1:30:08 AM PDT by F15Eagle

Israel's air force is globally recognized as one of the best. But it also possesses hidden weapons that have never before been seen, Israeli President Shimon Peres cautioned last week.

"Not all of the IDF's and the air force's capabilities are open to view. Whoever derides us and seeks to harass us should take this into account," Peres said during a visit to the large Palmachim Air Force base.

The remarks were taken as a none-too-subtle warning to regional enemies like Iran and its proxies in Gaza and Lebanon.

IDF Chief of Staff Gen. Benny Gantz followed the president by stating, "We are ready 365 days a year, at any range and facing any challenge. ...The air force is our main system for deterrence, offensive and defensive action, and has fantastic technological abilities."

Ah Peres. The man easily fooled by "peace".

Well, I suppose, he didn't say what the weapons are.

I sure do hope so, for Israel's sake.

They're gonna need RANGE in order to reach Iran.

God help Israel.

Shame on America for not dealing with Iran. Shame on Russia, in fact. Well, what do they care? Can't count on the Russkies for anything.

People who brag about “secret” weapons generally don’t have them. What is the relevance of this man?

Having said that, Israel is the world’s acknowledged leader in drone technology and drone production. I suspect that if they do go after Iran’s nuclear program it will be largely a drone war. But Ran’s easier target and one guaranteed to stop the nuclear program and collapse the regime is their oil.

I will. They have thermonuclear weapons (”H-Bombs”) and nuclear weapons (”A-Bombs”) deployed on aircraft, submarines, land-based missiles and artillery. Everyone in the higher reaches of intelligence and military circles knows that and has known it for years and years. It’s like declaring that China has rice. The weapons that Iran is “working on” and that India, Pakistan and North Korea have are the much weaker “A-Bomb” types, similar to what were used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. If Israel retaliates for an Iranian attack, there will be nothing but rubble and cockroaches left in Persia.

Does Israel have to wait for a blast BEFORE leveling Tehran? Or are they permitted to preempt and save themselves? Will Barry permit them to survive?

Peres is a freaking snake. Can’t stand him.

Maybe he should call the Hebrew Hammer or the Zohan their secret weapons!

They caught a lot of crap for striking first in 1967, so I assume they’ll wait for something to come their way before letting one of these off the chain.

Peres is Israel's figurehead President.

He is a visionary, an elder statesman, a dreamer, a Nobel Peace prize laureate and a very respected dignitary OUTSIDE of Israel.

Within Israel, he is respected by the Left power elite, the Israeli MSM and many just by virtue of his title. But the truth lingers just under the surface.

Israelis remember (and hold him culpable) for the Oslo Peace Accord FIASCO which led the Jews of Israel into a terror death trap called “Intifada II”.

In that process, 1,000 innocent Jews were killed in every way imaginable, bus bombs, shootings, stabbings, you name it and more than 5,000 were injured or maimed -all in the name of Peace.

Yesterday another round of these murderers were released for yet the 57th goodwill gesture to the PLO-FATAH Abu Mazen. What does Israel get in return? The PLO will sit down and talk with the Israelis, that's it.

Shimon Peres was the architect of that disaster and Prime minister Rabin took the bullets for it, not him or his cronies.

It is a sad chapter in Israel's efforts to compromise and find peace, a real peace. Not the one promised by this most distinguished and elderly gentleman who sleeps soundly in his bed while others have to live with the trauma and scars of what he brought to his people.

So, now he issues threats. There was a time when Israel did not brag, they just did things and then explained what they just did. Peres is probably correct, Israel has some deadly answers to those that would do her harm but he does not have to publicly mention them.

Yes, Israel took a lot of crap in 1956 (Suez Crisis) and in 1967 (Six Day War) but she hesitated in 1973 (Yom Kippur War) and paid a nasty price. Methinks she’s waited too long regarding iran.

I am looking at the EMP aspect. That’s what they’re gonna do. Massive EMP and then massive (on an Israeli scale) attack.
Obama has held Israel back, trying to give a Yoko Ono, ‘give peave a chance’, option but it will not work. Appeasement never does.

I would imagine their EMP capabilities are probably the most advanced in the world.

An electronically blinded enemy in this day and age is helpless.
Tremendous force multiplier.

Israel is number one or two in EW technology in the world.
Her Air Force, if not neutralized or bogged down by Hizbollah (in southern Lebanon) and HAMAS (in Gaza) can deliver devastating blows to any enemy. For how many days?

Question is, will Obama allow Israel to do anything? The Israelis have the capability to set the Iranian nuclear clock back but not eliminate it. Will the USSR, oops, I mean Putin's Russia intervene with their own countermeasures? I would assume so while Barry goes out to golf.
Very stressful times for Netanyahu or any of America's allies.

I view EW technology in three stages, jamming and counter measures, non-nuke driven EMP and finally nuke driven EMP.

Will be interesting.

Without Obama support, Israel will hit hard, very hard and decisively.
Think they will go for the kill, not just wounding.

Generally believed they have between 50 and 140 warheads - 85 "at ready" is a number I read quite often.
An EMP-type strike from sub-launched nukes (from Indian ocean?) may make it hard to finger Israel as the "culprit".
Iran goes dark - could have been the Saudi's using Ukranian nukes for all they know......

It will take about ten minutes to know where ANY nuke originates. Each type has a signature.

And if an EMP is used, the retaliation will not be at Tel Aviv, it will be at NY...or just the US in general. (Wishful thinking would be DC.). In any event, we need to think these things through before being cheerleaders.

And yes, I think Iran must be prevented from getting nuclear capabilities.

ELECLECTROMAGNETIC PULSE WEAPON

The Israelis could put down the entire country without killing anyone—blowout every electronic device within specified parameters. They are not talking about nuclear weapons.

Peres is the probable murderer of Rabin.

And a collaborator with Arafat, and having casino mob interest in “palestine”.

And, of course, Obama’s creature.

Israel’s secret weapon? God! Zechariah 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Zechariah 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Ezekiel 38:22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

Ezekiel 39:3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. 4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. 5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God. 6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord.

Exodus 32:13 All this land that I have spoken of will I give to your seed, and they shall inherit it FOREVER.

What Peres does not yet realize is there are also some "secret" weapons that will be used in a future war, specifically: hail storms, fire, brimstone, and battlefield confusion.

Good points.
But not being a cheerleader, just know the Bible is quite clear that (new) Israel will not be destroyed by foreign enemy - it will be attempted, but not successful.

I don't know what it is, but it is true that the Jews have a knack for being in powerful places.

If this is stereotyping. I apologize .. I'm commenting on what I think I think

They're in finances, medicine, entertainment, politics, physics, and some et cetera's

They're not only God's chosen people, but they're blessed BY God (undeservedly imo) with mental faculties that help put and keep them in key positions around the world

Events move too quickly these days, and too much happens behind the scenes for me to attempt prognosticating the Jews .. or ANYone for that matter ...

I don't think the Middle East is Israel's worry ... I think it is Russia

They have to strike pre-emptively. Israel is known basically as a "one-nuke" country. It would only take one big one to virtually destroy them. But the key of course is God Almighty. As it says in chapters 38 and 39 of Ezikiel(paraphrasing here) Israel will be attacked "full on" during the last days by a Gog-Magog type military (usually thought to be Russia) and "not one hair" will be harmed on the heads of God's children. RAPTURE READY? This event is not seen as a necessary precursor to the Rapture event. But I would not be surprised to see it as something either immediately preceding or just after the rapture.

Two things: first, by now Netanyahu has told Peres to shut his pie hole. second, there will NEVER be peace in that part of the world until the PRINCE OF PEACE sets foot there. This is stated by God Himself in His Holy Word.

Read Jeremiah. Jerusalem was leveled by Babylon at God’s insistence(Jeremiah) and later by the Romans in 70AD.
The whole book of Jeremiah is about God’s intention to destroy Jerusalem.

That’s what I thought you were referring to. The Jews have been brought back to the land of Israel because of prophecy. There are 7 years left of the 490 prophesied by Daniel. That will be the seven year tribulation. God promised the land to Israel “forever” and so it shall be. Preterism is dead wrong.
