Israel's explosive answer to Iran amid prophetic overture
Israel's M-O never has been to wait until its too late. That's why the world is on edge that Israel may take a preemptive approach toward Iran's growing nuclear weapons program. But Israel has been taking an aggressive approach all along, it hasn't been all that public, but it has been explosive. In May 2004, a train carrying North Korean missiles to Syria was mysteriously blown up along with a dozen Syrian missile technicians. In September 2007, an Israeli air strike left a crater at a nuclear facility Iran was helping Syria build for military purposes--this was confirmed by the United Nations in April 2011. In December 2010, the Stuxnet virus attacked Iran's nuclear programs, setting it back two years.
A finger has been pointed at Israel over a 2010 explosion at Iran's Shahab facility and an attack earlier the same year that killed one of Iran's top nuclear physicists. Other less newsworthy explosions have also occurred in Iran associated with its nuclear or military facilities. It appears that Monday's explosions in Iran was yet another subtle, but not so subtle reminder that Israel intends to seek every possible option before direct confrontation to protect itself from Iran's nuclear armed future aggressions. The UK Guardian reports that Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad, was behind the blast at the Bid Ganeh military base that killed Iran's leading missile developer and 16 others.
Israel's defense minister Ehud Barak reacted to Monday's explosion saying, "May there be more like it." Former head of Israeli national security Ilan Mizrahi said, "I have no idea whether this blast was accidental or whether it was sabotage. But I will say God bless those who were behind it, because the free world should be doing its best to prevent Iran from achieving nuclear military capability." Mizrahi also told reporters that "There is nothing in this latest IAEA (UN) report that Israel hasn't known for a long time. Their arsenal of long-range missiles is also too often overlooked. I believe a military strike is an option that should be put clearly on the table. Something should be done to stop Iran."
Then Mizrahi waxed prophetic: "I think in the end [Israel] will stand alone." Certainly, with Israel's chief ally the United States supporting al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood in overthrowing the governments in Libya, Tunisia and Egypt, Israel must feel pretty alone already. But as any reader of Bible prophecy knows, this is just a beginning. Zechariah 12:3 speaks of the Day of the Lord where "all the people of the earth be gathered together against it (Jerusalem)." And there is clear warning in verse 9,"I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem." Indeed, Israel will be alone, with the exception of the one true God. And if God be for them, who can be against them? No one that's remaining.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
