Islamic Terrorists Issue Threat To ‘Hit Israel’ In Coming Weeks

On anniversary of 9/11 and celebration of Rosh Hashana

Israeli and Jewish targets all over the world are likely to be sought out by terrorist organizations in the coming weeks, the Israeli government’s Counter-Terrorism Bureau warned in strikingly strident tones on Monday, listing dozens of countries where it said it had “concrete” indications of a terrorist threat.

It cited concerns about terrorist acts timed to coincide with the forthcoming Rosh Hashana (New Year), Yom Kippur and Succot festivals, and also said that the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the US was likely to be “a favored period” for al-Qaeda and other global jihadist groups to attempt to carry out acts of terrorism.

Iran and Hezbollah, it warned, were continuing their “global terror campaign” against Israeli and Jewish targets. It noted that Iran remained bent on avenging alleged Israeli responsibility for the killing of Hezbollah terror chief Imad Mughniyeh in a Damascus car-bombing in 2008, and the deaths of three Iranian nuclear scientists.

It said its information indicated that Israeli businessmen and ex-government officials were prime potential targets for assassination and/or kidnapping.

With all that in mind, the bureau reconfirmed that Israelis are barred altogether from travel to Iran, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Yemen, where the “concrete” terror threat was “very high.”

In addition, it ordered Israelis not to travel to Sudan, Somalia, Algeria, Djibouti, Mauritania, Libya and Tunisia, and to leave these countries immediately if they were there, because of a similarly “very high” terror threat. Where Tunisia was concerned, it underlined what it said were the “threats to carry out attacks on Israeli and Jewish targets.”

The unusually shrill and widespread alert included an order to Israelis not to travel to the Sinai Peninsula, because of the chaotic situation in Egypt. The Sinai’s Red Sea resorts are a traditionally popular holiday destination for Israelis, especially at this time of year. The advisory noted that Sinai was off limits not only because of the general Egyptian disorder and a series of recent attacks in the Sinai, however, but also because of “information on the intention to carry out further attacks.”

Using only slightly less urgent language, the bureau, part of the National Security Council under the authority of the Prime Minister’s Office, ordered Israelis to “avoid visiting” the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Egypt and Qatar, where it cited what it called a “basic” terrorist threat. Israel maintains peace agreements with both Jordan and Egypt, and the warning underlines what the bureau called “the complex security realities” in nations adjacent to Israel.

The bureau also told Israelis to postpone nonessential visits to Turkey, Oman and Morocco, because of “ongoing potential threats.”

Slightly further afield, it cited “very high” terror threats in Afghanistan, parts of southern Thailand, parts of the southern Philippines, east Senegal, India’s Kashmir province, northern Nigeria, parts of Kenya, and Chechnya. Israel were not to travel to any of those areas, and to leave immediately if they were there, it ordered.

The advisory also specified a “high” terror threat in Indonesia, Burkina-Faso, Ivory Coast, Togo, Mali, Malaysia and Pakistan, telling Israelis not to go there and urging them to leave as soon as possible if they were there now.

The bureau’s warning also specified concerns about terror threats to Israeli “business targets” worldwide, and especially in Africa, “in the wake of the exposure of a terrorist infrastructure in Nigeria over the past year.” Generally, it urged Israelis traveling worldwide to take extra precautions, such as avoiding unexpected meetings or out of the way places, and to change regular travel routes. source – Times of Israel

  • Why is it again that The Jewish people are under attack. Remember what Hitler done….These people should be helped from the rest of the world or are are we going to see a repeat of what happened in the Second World war. and stand by and let it happen again. Jewish, Christian, Sikh, Buddist, Hindu etc etc should all stand against this Islamic hatred.

    • Scripture prophesy said this would happen!!

    • Oh no another history channel historian. The events and history of WW2 that you have been told about are not true.

  • Here we go……

  • The Jews are God’s Chosen People. That’s why they are so hated by the rest of the world. This loud, shrill warning may turn out like the warning about the U.S. embassies: nothing happens, now. It may all be postponed. They may have LET the messages be intercepted, just to interfere with Jewish business! The terrorists know their communication is being monitored. Why not use it? I expect the embassies to be attacked in the future, without warning. Obama’s not as smart as he thinks he is! An attack on Jews may happen later, too. I pray it doesn’t happen, but how are we really supposed to prevent it? By catching the terrorists, of course! Our “president” isn’t up to that! He’d rather claim they are “on the run”. He’d rather bankrupt the country on green projects that don’t work. Lord, please protect Your people, keep them safe in Your Arms, and show Your overwhelming strength to their enemies. I ask in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    • Jody:

      Not many tune in to this “green” idea. Green is the code name for Islamic Jihad, take a look at the color of their flag, and the color of clothing they typically wear.

      Make sense to you??

    • Amen.

      • This Amen was in response to Jody’s prayer.

    • Hello Jody – Our president is doing exactly what he is being told to do.

  • what else is new. to hell with the muslims.they want to destroy Israel. bottom line. so Israel should destroy them first.

  • Everyone forgets that Iran said they will wipe Israel off the map, then the USA!! So, if we protect Israel, we protect the USA as well!!

    • America was Israel’s worldly protector ever since May 1948, but with the democrats and the anti-Israel attitude, the rejection of Christ, homosexuality and abortion agendas in America today, America has become a curse in God’s eyes… You may ask, “How would I know this?” God has made it very clear with the visions of a nuclear holocaust given for America to three different Pastors here since the mid ’80s.
      To read God’s judgment for America, Google: “The Message For America, Hand of Help Ministries.” To read how I was led to this, Google: ” Watchman On The Wall, America ~ Mystery Babylon? ” To read the message of the 2nd major terrorist attack, Google; “The Eagle and the Serpents, Hand of Help Ministries.” And for where I believe the location of the 2nd attack will be, Google: “Watchman On The Wall, The Eagle and the Serpents (Part 2).”

      • Hi Watchman, thank you blessings

    • Hi Teresa B,
      And Obama does nothing, while they kill the Christians and burn their Churches. Can you imagine if it were the other way around. He isn’t the least bit concerned about us or anyone else. Still think he has supernatural powers from the dark side.

      • Good aft Tracy, good to hear from you. Interesting you say that about Domonic Powers. One night I was here w dogs, hubby gone. I was watching tv and in the lower left corner appeared the President in a form about 3×4 size? guessing. His eyes were piercing and there was a glow around him. I was shocked and there was no ad. My hair stood up feeling on my arms. It was just for a minute. But it scared me Have a nice eve Blessings in the Lord

        • @Teresa B,
          That is a bit scary. Wonder why his face appeared like that?

          • Hi I don’t know but I thought it odd you mentioned Demonic and I had that experience! 🙂

      • I hear you on that Tracy. He is like teflon. Some sort of protection…not Godly.

        • @ Bristol,
          Yeah, and regardless of what he does, his actions seem to show no worry at all. It’s as if he knows he’s protected.

      • [Still think he has supernatural powers from the dark side.]
        Pres. Obama may be control by evil forces that we fail to see….. God does not give Pres. Obama the power but He allows him to do the things he does to accomplish God’s divine will.

  • If those are the tools they are planing on going to work with in that photo. I think they are going to have a hard time wiping anything off the face of the map with that stuff. They would have a hard time taking out a honda civic with those tools.

    • 🙂 🙂 🙂 D City

  • “O” is a muslim so of course he does’t care about the Christians and wouldn’t care about us, if it happened here. You have to understand, it’s the muslim pipe dream to take over the world. Don’t worry, God has our back!!

  • They look pretty rusty!!

    • HI Bristol, did you mean what I posted? I haven’t got the answer to who right yet! If so, I thought sort that way too, who knows what they used. I was sm when I saw the Movie The Ten Commandments and it stuck to me. When I saw it I thought, that could be us one day, and it bothered me. Have a nice eve, Blessings to you,

  • No no…I meant the weapons in the picture!

    • OH SORRY!! I was so disturbed I only saw Blood! 🙂

  • Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
    Rev 17:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
    Rev 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
    Rev 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
    Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
    Rev 17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
    Rev 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

    The Anti Christ will reign from Jerusalem, proclaiming to be God.
    Dan 11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
    What place would hate the City of Jerusalem, if her sacrifices started again? The same Place that has always hated her, Palestine! And all of Canaan with it.

    • So now, I have one question to ask: Why would God give so many woes to these places if they were not involved in the end time events?

      They all was chosen to receive punishment and wrath from God in all the Major Prophets and many of the Minor as well, Zephaniah being an excellent example.

      Dan 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
      This is not America all this is taking place. It’s Middle East.

      Zep 2:2 Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’S anger come upon you.
      Zep 2:3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.
      Zep 2:4 For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.
      Zep 2:5 Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant.
      Zep 2:6 And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks.
      Zep 2:7 And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the LORD their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity.
      Zep 2:8 I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people, and magnified themselves against their border.
      Zep 2:9 Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them.
      Zep 2:10 This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the LORD of hosts.
      Zep 2:11 The LORD will be terrible unto them: for he will famish all the gods of the earth; and men shall worship him, every one from his place, even all the isles of the heathen.
      Zep 2:12 Ye Ethiopians also, ye shall be slain by my sword.
      Zep 2:13 And he will stretch out his hand against the north, and destroy Assyria; and will make Nineveh a desolation, and dry like a wilderness.

      • The word is going out through the wilderness, will anyone hear?
        Luk 18:7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
        Luk_18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

        Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?




      • Good Morning STL. I agree w you when I came here I thought it different than what I figured it would be . Having said that, I am now accustomed to the way things roll, I think. I asked for those who post reg to teach/explain a little more than just Scriptures, because especially Revelations is difficult for a Milker. That IS being done now and very helpful. Maybe what you are asking could be also brought into the urgency of being Saved in these End Times? Anyway, yesterday was so so good, hope today brings such too! You have a great day, Blessings

      • Am I stopping you from discussing the blood. Most people have heard about the Blood of The Lamb already. But in no way would I interfere with that teaching. Do your work and I’ll do mine. The whole Bible is not John 3:16. John 3:16 is very simple to understand. Other things are not.

        • Hi Ron, thank you. Both should be here and thankful for those who share.

        • Ron: I think you missed the meaning of John 3:16, as its the foundation of our Faith in Jesus Christ. Without John 3:16, then we would be just like the unrighteous ones, having no meaning in life.

          Then you say, do your work and I will do mine, that sounds like pride again. We should all be working for one cause, getting others to believe in Jesus Christ and bringing them to Salvation, than worrying about our future?

          Again question asked? If you stop discussing Tribulation, what would you discussed?

          As other things, Jesus will get others to help the young converts, to understand God scriptures.

          Why so much pride on your part?

  • Hello Teresa B. – I as you are new and growing in my faith. I agree with your concerns about this site, that it loses its focus. A focus that needs to be strengthening those who are new to Christ and reassuring those who are strong in their faith. What I have to say, is so strong in my heart. I have stated a few times my core for belief. It to me is everything a person who may be looking into Christ needs to know, it is 1 Corinthians 15:3,4. If you put your faith in Jesus, and what He did for us you will have eternal life with Him in the new Jerusalem. Think about it. It goes all the way back to the new testament. God himself revealed Himself to His people. God promised a Savior. Jesus came. Jesus lived. Jesus died. Jesus rose again. Jesus is coming back and taking us all home to heaven. Where God has meant all of us to be from the beginning. And we can be there in His glory forever by FAITH. It can be hard sometimes to keep the focus. We didn’t walk with Jesus. WE don’t have the divine inspired words that Paul had when he wrote the books. But what we do have is God’s promise and Gos never breaks a promise. Jesus died a sacrificial death for you Teresa, for me for everyone who reads this. For everyone who was, is and will be. HE went to the CROSS. They laid him down on a cross!!! AND DROVE NAILS THROUGH HIS HANDS AND FEET so He wouldn’t fall off…FOR US!!! He died THE death we deserved!!! But He rose again from death to prove He is more powerful than our enemies. satan, sin and death. Jesus died for all of this for all of us who believe. Jesus is coming again. Coming to take all in Christ home. If you think about it being in Christ has the lowest bar there is. All we need to do is BELIEVE. That’s it. Nothing more. Pretty simple but yet tough to do. God Bless. Please let’s strengthen each other.

    • Good Even Bo, oh my I don’t know what to say other than how inspiring your words are to me, and I hope others will be as well. I think that in my heart and maybe one day I too can share that kind of Love and Faith. God Bless you and thank you so very much for sharing 🙂

    • Amen Bo! So proud of you.
      You are right, in these rapidly changing times, we do need to help strengthen the new in Christ and keep reassuring each other that EVERYTHING is in God’s control. He will NEVER leave us nor FORSAKE us.
      He is with us ALWAYS.

  • FYI: Adolph Hitler was Catholic. It is not one specific people who hate the Jew. That is why God told Abraham ” I will bless them that bless thee and curse them that curse thee”.

    Since the whole world “lieth in wickedness”, it is no wonder that we see this ramping up of confusion and evil in the whole world. just look at the escalation since the promised “change” in the past five plus years. Man’s history is rapidly rushing to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    I look forward to this event as a saved man but also have sorrow for my country and how she has failed to honor the blessings and privilage that the God of the Bible bestowed upon her at the start.

    Don’t blame Obama, he is blindly fulfilling the plan of God. There is no way anyone can stop him.


  • Very similar to the threats that caused us to close our embassies…threats that never materialized. The terrorists make gain just by threatening. Ultimately, we will just say “the boy who cried wolf” and ignore the warnings. Then we will be ripe for destruction. So, we need to continue to take threats seriously and stay in prayer for all of God’s people…including the ones who don’t know it yet.

  • WOW what an incredible day here on the End. So much Teaching and Sharing Gods Word, His Truth. It is almost overwhelming to me, I cant thank everyone enough.
    Eph 1:3
    Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has Blessed us with every Spiritual blessing in the Heavenly places in Christ.



  • Third Day Give me Revelation

  • I often wonder why so many different places are listed to get information from elsewhere than the scriptures.One’s faith stands or falls on one’s own understanding,at least that what Paul told Timothy to do.”Study to show thyself approved…

  • Just making the point that what I believe will happen is based upon my own understanding of scriptures.I listen to other’s viewpoints but never point people to different web sites for their understanding of the Bible,tghat’s all.Don’t be upset.:-}

  • To elaborate,the reason we have so many denominations and so many phonies in the “Christian community is because people would rather follow someone else’s studies than develop their own.Clear enough?

    • oh not upset, just didn’t understand is all. If you refer to anything I post it is not for that purpose, just FYI. just clarification on me.

    • Amen, Glenn.

  • Thanks Ron for the Revelation scriptures you post! Each time I see truths I missed or it reinforces the ones I already believe. You and Dc have been a blessing to me. God Bless!

    • And to me too, Debra 🙂
