Chorus of Israeli voices renews calls for Iran strike

Prophecy Sign:  The coming Middle-East Wars, (Isaiah 17, Psalm 83, Jeremiah 49)

Voices in Israel are renewing calls for a strike on the Iranian nuclear facilities, feeling that the world will do nothing but sell out Israel and allow Iran to continue to pursue its goal of entering the nuclear weapons club. When you have Arab lawmakers calling for the massacre of Jews, can you blame Israel for being just a little paranoid? Israel feels she can trust no one, (including the Obama administration), and continues preparatory military training for future wars with her Arab neighbours, (Syria, Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinians).

God will see to it that those enemies of Israel that hold to this ancient hostility and hatred will be severely punished for calling for bloodshed and massacre of the Jews.

Because you harbored an ancient hostility and delivered the Israelites over to the sword at the time of their calamity, the time their punishment reached its climax, therefore as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I will give you over to bloodshed and it will pursue you. Since you did not hate bloodshed, bloodshed will pursue you. Ezekiel 35:5-6 NIV

Chorus of Israeli voices renews calls for Iran strike
A rising chorus of Israeli voices is again raising the possibility of carrying out a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities in what appears to be an attempt to draw renewed attention to Tehran’s atomic program — and Israel’s unhappiness with international negotiations with the Iranians. In recent days, a series of newspaper reports and comments by top defense officials have signaled that the military option remains very much on the table. While Israeli officials say Israel never shelved the possibility of attacking, the heightened rhetoric marks a departure from Israel’s subdued approach since six world powers opened negotiations with Iran last November.

Hamas Lawmaker: Koran Says We Must Massacre Jews
A lawmaker from Hamas recently called for a “massacre” of Jews, explaining that the Koran indicates that this must be done. In a televised address the lawmaker, Yunis Al-Astal, also said that Jews must be forced to pay the “jizya” tax, which under the strict Islamic Sharia doctrine, non-Muslims living under Muslim sovereignty must pay in return for the ruler's protection. Jihadist rebels who have taken control of areas in Syria have imposed such a tax on Christian minorities. Al-Astal’s address aired on March 6 on Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV. It was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

As border heats up, reservists train for Syria scenarios
As the Syria-Israel border heated up in the wake of Tuesday’s attack on an IDF patrol and Israeli retaliatory strikes on regime army positions, IDF reservists trained this week for scenarios they might face in a hypothetical operation in Syria. Though the Yiftah Brigade’s exercises were not tied specifically to this week’s events, the growing uncertainty in the border area adds urgency to grueling training to prepare for combat against jihadist groups, Hezbollah, and the Syrian army.
