Netanyahu vows to banish ‘darkness’ of Iran nuclear program
Times of Israel ^ | November 28, 2013 | JOSHUA DAVIDOVICH

Posted on 11/28/2013 11:59:56 AM PST by Mean Daddy

Melding the Hanukkah holiday and foreign affairs, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu solemnly vowed to act as a “light unto the nations” and act against Iran’s nuclear program should diplomacy fail Thursday night.

Speaking at the Western Wall for a Hanukkah candle-lighting ceremony, Netanyahu compared Iran’s nuclear program to a darkness that would be forced out by Israel, referencing a popular children’s song for the holiday.

I don't know if Bibi is trying to goad the Iranians into striking first or what. Israel has never backed away from a fight. Typically it's when their government is quiet is when Iran should worry. Lot of sword rattling going on.

IMO - Bibi has been ready but Obama has been successful in holding him off. Since the relationship has dramatically changed who know what he will do. Although I am sure there are some substantial threats in place.

I’m just amazed from the clamor from the media that Oombama have world wide consensus for his actions. < insert sarcasm >

Swords become very silent when unsheathed & in the warrior’s grasp.

Watched a vid about the IAF in the 1967 war. One of their major advances was cutting fighter/bomber ground turnaround time to mere minutes, greatly increasing the number of daily sorties flown. If the Israelis could do that then, with 1950’s Mirage & Mystere aircraft, then the IAF must by now be the world’s largest airborne scalpel.

Just prior to the initial strikes that caught the Egyptian air force on the ground, the IAF sent their pilots on leave to splash in the surf with their families. It was a deception that succeeded brilliantly.

Anything can happen now with few if any warning signs.

“Be ready, for ye know not the hour”

On a different thread I wrote that I think Israel’s Mossad has Intel. It might point directly at that fake president obummer. I stated they may release it at the appropriate time, like say just after they destroyed Iran’s nuclear capabilities.

Hate to say it....but I think Net will send intel to Russia first.

"Should diplomacy fail". Hmmm....sounds like Netanyahu is pulling back the rhetoric a bit. Interesting.

Well he looks like he is taking the high road. He wants to illuminate the problem to the whole world, at least the part of the whole world that will listen. (Christians generally will.)

And... ultimately the high road is the way of God.

There is a time to do smackdowns for God, but it isn’t on a whim. Circumstances have to be right. I think he knows that Christians, by and large, have his spiritual back, even though he does not yet believe in some Christian tenets. (Same God, but there’s a dispute about details.)

No he's not. Netanyahu has been all over the airwaves promising that Israel will not allow Iran to go nuclear.

My money is on someone finally convincing Netanyahu that his thinly veiled threat of military action is isolating Israel at a time when it needs to be involved with events.

Well he didn’t spell out HOW he was going to achieve this goal.

It would sound reasonable to still hope to prevail upon Christians in America and elsewhere.

He’s Jewish and that means he has the promise of God on his stubborn soul. We can wrangle theological details — does this mean salvation or just earthly blessing? — but earthly blessing is certainly marked enough for the Jews. They suffer AND they bring blessing. Kind of like their King did... hmmm?? God doesn’t always wait for someone to say out loud that they accept Him, before blessing them. Because He has an omniscient view.

What would he prevail upon American Christians to do? Exactly?

Overthrow the Democrat rule, for starters.

Remember this mere mortal has a mere God behind him.

Fair enough. Then why has Netanyahu not acted on this threat to Israel in the 20 years he's been talking about it? Does he not know he has the promise of God?

And if any time was pregnant for the God of truth to be called upon to move to overthrow a world of lies... it would seem to me, IMHO, that this is it. One huge lie, Obamacare, which touches people where they can NOT ignore. One big turkey, in chains, while here’s your musket, Pilgrim. (Turkey being figurative for the Democrat lies.)

The Jews are slow to understand this, yes. Ultimately they have the Christian blessing... yes Jesus died for their souls too. And that hurts their prides! Oy vey does it hurt their prides!

Israel showed with the Iraqi and Syrian reactors that it will not hesitate to strike if it has the ability to do so.

What Netanyahu has shown with all his talk and inaction is that key components of the Iranian program are beyond Israel's conventional react.

He may not be referring to bombs or such extravagant action.

The bomb has been delayed or crippled by killing the scientists, by stuxnet disruption, by explosions in Isfahan and elsewhere. These are results about which we know. We don’t know what we don’t know.

We read today of S audi “fishing boats” being detained off Iran.

There are others besides Bibi with fish to fry.

We don’t know what they are up to. Bibi knows that and is rattling the Mullah’s cage

You mean like this?

Sebastian Vettel's incredible four-second pit stop

( I wondered why lately so many NASCAR pit crew members seem to be wearing yarmulkes?... IAF doing OJT?)

And if a man had faith the size of a mustard seed, he could command a mountain to cast itself into the sea. Haven't heard of that happening - as you so aptly pointed out, he is a mere mortal.
