Israel 'preparing for war' against Hezbollah

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East Wars

We already noted in another blog entry for today that the Palestinians have no desire for a state of their own in any other part of the Middle East other than over top of present day Israel.  To that end, Hezbollah in the north and Hamas in the South are prepping again for war, with ISIS and Syrian rebels moving towards Israel from the East.  This sure sounds like a Psalm 83 scenario to us. And what will happen to Gaza and the Palestinians in the aftermath?

Gaza will be abandoned and Ashkelon left in ruins. At midday Ashdod will be emptied and Ekron uprooted. Woe to you who live by the sea, you *Kerethite people; the word of the Lord is against you, Canaan, land of the Philistines. He says, “I will destroy you, and none will be left.” Zephaniah 2:4-5 NIV

* Kerethite - Strong's Definition: Probably from karath in the sense of executioner, (terrorist)

Israel 'preparing for war' against Hezbollah
The Israeli army is currently preparing for the possibility of the eruption of “a very violent war” with Hezbollah in southern Lebanon, Israel's Channel 2 reported. In the report, Colonel Dan Goldfus of the Israeli army said that they will have to use "considerable force" against Hezbollah and “to act more decisively, more drastically” to win any such conflict with them. Noting that Hezbollah has an estimated 100,000 rockets, Goldfus said that a conflict against the Shiite Lebanese group would be "a whole different story” from the recently-concluded onslaught against the Gaza Strip. Most of these rockets are deployed in southern Lebanon – near to the border with Israel – but there are also long-range missiles located in Beirut, which are capable of carrying large warheads of up to one ton, he added.

Hamas Rebuilding Tunnels, Making Rockets: Next Gaza War Soon
Hamas has renewed rocket manufacturing and tunnel building two weeks into the ceasefire, according to a report by Ynet News quoting a senior political source. Why should anyone be surprised? Hamas makes no secret of the fact that its only raison d’etre is the destruction of the State of Israel and all Jews. At a time when the focus is supposed to be on rebuilding Gaza, Hamas takes what little materials there are for its own military needs. There can be no greater demonstration of its cynical disregard of the requirements of the citizens who elected it to power with the assumption that their welfare would be paramount. Indirect negotiations regarding future arrangements for a long-term peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians were set to begin in Cairo shortly. However, Hamas has decided to challenge Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and test his response to their extensive reinforcement efforts.

Mofaz: Islamic State's goal is to conquer Jerusalem, just like Hamas
Kadima party chairman, Shaul Mofaz said on Monday that Islamic State terrorists were active throughout the region and looking to move into Jordan, Gaza and Lebanon. “But their goal is Jerusalem, just like Hamas. Islamic State and Hamas are one, let us make no mistake. They are from the same ‘village’ and they are branches of the same tree,” Mofaz told participants at the annual conference of the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism in Herzliya. “The Islamic State beheads its victims and Hamas operates with the same cruelty,” he continued.
