WILL ISRAEL INITIATE A PRE-EMPTIVE STRIKE ON IRAN?December 2nd, 2011
By Melva Lea Beacham
Recently, a British newspaper, The Telegraph, reported that British intelligence warned Israel would launch a military action as early as Christmas or the very beginning of 2012 to thwart Iran’s nuclear weapons’ development.
Coincidentally, the “no fly zone” over Iraq, agreed upon by the US and Iraq in November 2008, will expire December 31 with the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.
The shortest air route from Israel to Iran is over Iraq.
According to Nov. 14, 2011 DEBKAfile, intelligence sources have apprised President Obama that Iran will have 5 nuclear bombs or warheads by April. Thus, Israel’s window of opportunity to stop Iran’s attaining a nuclear weapon will be closed by late March.
Iran is ruled by Islamists who believe it is their divine mandate to rid the earth of Israel and Jewish people. For Israel to wait until Iran actually has nuclear capability is national suicide.
But apart from Divine intervention, a preemptive strike by Israel would launch massive retaliatory missile barrages upon the tiny nation, not only from Iran, but also Iran’s terrorist proxies, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and Hamas in Gaza. Also, just this week the Muslim Brotherhood won a landslide election victory in Egypt. This does not bode well for Israel.
People have asked do I believe this next war will be Gog-Magog. No, not the next one. Although the nations mentioned in Ezekiel 38-39 are now aligned together against Israel, other factors are not in place, such as the “man of sin” has not yet been revealed and the spiritual harvest in Israel is not yet full enough.
But, make no mistake, this coming war will be deadly and Israel and the Jewish people are going to need massive support from Christians. In next month’s edition, I’ll recommend specific ministries in Israel that you can financially support.
Until then, PRAY! Pray for wisdom for Israel’s leaders—that they will humbly seek God for His strategies against their enemies; that though their military capabilities are mighty, that their trust will be in God Himself!
