BREAKING NEWS! US Prepared To EVACUATE American Citizens From Israel

| November 20, 2012

 

Three US warships on standby and prepared to sail for coast of Israel

The US has ordered three amphibious warships with 2,500 Marines aboard back to the eastern Mediterranean to remain on standby off Israel’s shore in case they are needed to evacuate American citizens. The USS Iwo Jima, the USS New York and the USS Gunston Hall, were sailing west of Gibraltar on their way to back to Norfolk, Virginia, when they were turned around.

The United States have never before evacuated American citizens from Israel. The US notice does not say whether a possible evacuation would include the US forces posted in American bases in Israel. A mass evacuation would entail a Marine shore landing in order to lead the evacuees to the amphibious craft.

The Iwo Jima is a helicopter carrier, while the New York, one of the newest vessels of its kind in the US Navy, is a primary class of amphibious transport dock.

Although a decision to evacuate nationals was defined in the CNN report as a “remote contingency,” our sources stress that it is extreme enough to be taken only when a war situation is envisaged capable of endangering Americans.

This step negates the expectation articulated widely in Israel Monday, Nov. 19,  that a ceasefire with the Hamas is within reach. It rather indicates that Washington sees the situation surrounding the Gaza Strip in a far different light, more like a situation holding the threat of a general conflagration beyond the confines of the Israel-Hamas contest in Gaza.

According to the same report, the US military also maintains three to four ships off the coast of Israel that are capable of shooting down ballistic missiles. That deployment has stretched for some months in the face of a potential ballistic threat from Iran. source – DEBKA

    We need to lift up our heads as our redemption is drawing near! Israel needs ours prayers now more then ever! God’s Word is being filled right before our very eyes!

  2. tomnchrist says:

    I am thankful someone in the Pentagon is thinking correctly and watching out for our citizens!

    • Craigory says:

      Shouldn’t the US be assisting their greatest ally and not helping the terrorists? What happened to the war on terror? Seems like the Obama administration has chosen to switch sides.

  3. Marie McGaha says:

    While I am hopeful this means there will not be another Benghazi where our embassy is attacked by Hamas, I hope it doesn’t mean pulling our military out of the region. We have to help Israel defend herself, and if our troops aren’t there, I am afraid for the safety of the Israeli people. While they do have a great army and air defense, they are a small country and now that Egypt has joined Hamas, Israel needs her allies.

    • Psalm 100 says:

      Marie,

      You are right: Israel is tiny in size and I find myself thinking the same thing. Then I reflect on all the wars in the OT where God literally has the odds against the Jews. Here is just 3 for us to reflect on: Gideon with 300 men; Jericho with walking and a trumpet blast and shouting; and another where God slays 100,000 of the Assyrian army at night….whew! It always causes me to stand in awe.

      The upcoming wars will be ones that will highlight God’s strength and might, and the whole world will see the results; even Israel will stand amazed.

      Even still, just like you, we pray fervently for Israel’s protection and salvation. This is what we all can and must do to participate with Israel in their battles. It is also important for us all to remember that the wars we see on this side of heaven are just a very small picture of the battles being fought in the spiritual realm over Israel.

      Joining with you, dear Sister, in prayer for Israel.

    • Do not think for a moment that God is not with his beloved nation. Nothing will happen to Israel without his consent. “If God is for us, who can be against us”.

  4. Gail Webster says:

    KEEP PRAYING FOR ISRAEL. FATHER GOD IS IN CONTROL. SHALOM.

  5. Wily says:

    Marie,
    Understand what your saying but don’t you think the Lord will take care of His covenanted Land & People? No matter what the US does the Lord knew before hand – what concerns me (us?) is we know the Lord is bringing Judgment on us (usa) and many believe that Gog will use this time to avenge us. Do believe before spring has sprung here we’ll (hope not the Church) be looking at a different nation if the Lord chooses and we can rest assured that He knows you (me – us) we know Him and He knows how to speak to us in ways we know that it’s Him if He should tarry! Keep your eye’s upon Jesus, rest assured He’ll see all your needs.

    God bless
    you all

    This conflict with Hamas in Gaza and Eygpt, Iran etc.. is the Obadiah war that God showed me when my kids were young that would come to pass when my girls were grown women! Israel Destroys Hamas in Gaza, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, etc.. and gets most of the land back that God gave them by covenant in the old testament. That’s what it says in Obadiah and that’s what God told me would happen! Keep praying God will get the glory as he defends Israel from her enemies! Shalom!

  7. friend of God says:

    I hear you Marie

  8. R.Koch says:

    I Pray that the LORD intervenes for Israel. Watch because Israel is GODS time Clock. HE will allow Other Nations to come against Israel, but He in turn will Pour HIS wrath out on Them. They were forced by Obama & Hilary to divide Their Land. So Gaza was turned over to the Palestinians( the Old Philistines). It was not Their Land. They squatted on it from Jordan, Egypt & Other Muslum Nations. It’s time Israel has Her Land back. This is all Prophecied for end time. We must continue to Pray for Israel & that the U.S. will remember to stand with Israel or We as a Nation are done. So Pray, Pray, Pray.

  9. A point of interest: We have been led to believe that the US in the protector of Israel. To the contrary, Israel is the protector of all who will believe and honor the promise given through Abram ( Genesis 12:3/ Numbers 24:9/ Jeremiah 25:14/Galatians 6:8 ect…) When the US officially pulls the plug on Israel it will be amazing to watch the results of that Godless decision. I do not fully understand when the Lord will call the true believers out, but until He does we are called to fight the good fight and to keep looking up. He WILL come!

  10. wow…interesting posts!!!

  11. Rhonda B. says:

    Mr. Netanyahu, if you capitulate to Mr. Obama, you fail in your duty to your people. YOU are the leader of your country, NOT Mr. Obama. I can’t understand why you feel you need the approval of any other country’s leader when you have the approval of ALMIGHTY GOD, Who just happens to trump any other leader!

    Get on your knees and pray to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He will give you all the answers you need.

  12. leon p says:

    God said he would bless the ones who are friends to his chosen people God will be coming back soon for all that are his till then we ned to watch over Israel and help them anyway we can

  13. GOD BLESS ISRAEL!! D LAND IS THEIRS BY OATH, GOD IS NOT MAN THAT HE SHOULD LIE OR REPENT SO
    NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, WHO SUPPORTS THEM OR NOT, ISRAELITES ARE GOD’S PPLE. JESUS IS A JEW, THEY WILL ALWAYS WIN!!
    ALL WE NEED IS TO PRAY, PRAY, PRAY FOR THEM!

  14. Scott says:

    Putting biblical profficy aside for a moment Israel does NOT need our military help ! They are and have been for quite some time capable of defending themselves. What they need is for the U.S. to stay out of the way and let God deliver his will !!

  15. Domenic ;p says:

    The end is near

  16. LIFT UP YOUR EYES CHURCH!!!!! THIS IS THE TIME THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY READY TO BLESS US ABUNDANTLY FOR PRAYING FOR THE PEACE OF ISRAEL…..PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF ISRAEL…..

  17. Whose worried about Israel, Just look at her foes and see here in Jeremiah 30:11 KJV there end! After all is said and done, God is not a man that He should lie. What we better concern ourselves with, during this dispensation of grace, is, am I saved. Do I possess what I confess, save from sin and shame.

    Repent, and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost Acts 2:38; 4:10-12; 8:12-17; 19:1-7 KJV.

    Then and only then, shall you find rest for your aching soul’s and be found numbered among them which are sanctified 1st Peter 2:9-10, the body of Jesus Christ, “the triumphant church of the living God which He has purchase with His OWN blood!

  18. Danny says:

    Well we are free just like Israel and God can not nor will He force His will on anyone. God never leaves but WE CAN be it any nation. And we should be praying for ALL nations just as much as you would for Israel. All need Jesus.. even those in Israel. For no matter where you are if you dont know Jesus you wont live forever.

    So get our eyes off us and show this world God is alive and well and doing AWESOME THINGS! Not evil as in killing and destroying as some seem to think. You know not the Father. Hes trying to SAVE this world.

    See He wants to take with Him that person that stands next to you that knows Him not. Thats the one He wants to come take!
