On the wings of eagles

Shortly before the UN Security Council met Thursday, March 17, to discuss a no-fly zone resolution for Libya, Moscow promised Washington and other Western capitals not to apply a veto, debkafile’s sources report exclusively.

The US, British, French, UAE and Qatar air forces were on standby to attack Libyan army targets as soon as the resolution is passed. If attacked, Libya threatens retaliation against civilian and military targets in Europe and the Middle East, according to a statement from the Defense Ministry in Tripoli..

In Tunis, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explained that a UN no-fly zone over Libya “would require the bombing of targets to take out the threat posed by Muammar Qaddafi’s regime.”

She spoke after Cairo rejected Washington’s request for the use of Egyptian air bases to enforce the no fly zone against Libya and from which to launch US air attacks on Qaddafi’s army. This too is disclosed by debkafile’s exclusive sources.

Earlier Thursday, March 17, debkafile reported: Shortly before she left Egypt for Tunis Wednesday, March 16, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urgently asked the head of Egypt’s military junta Field Marshal Mohammed Tantawi for permission to use Egyptian air bases for American military jets to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya. This is reported exclusively by debkafile’s military and Washington sources.
Clinton told Tantawi she hoped for UN Security Council approval of the no-fly zone at its special session Thursday March 17. But this might not be enough to stop Muammar Qaddafi’s advance and the US might have to resort to military action against his army. She did not elaborate on this. In Tunis, she said later that a UN no-fly zone over Libya would require the bombing of targets to take out the threat posed by Muammar Qaddafi’s regime.” source – DEBKA

The Israel Air Force This Week Will Conduct Massive Drill With United States Military Simulating A Strike On Iran’s Russian-Built Nuclear Program

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Israel Air Force this week will hold one of its largest drills in years with the United States Air Force simulating offensive strikes against Iran’s nuclear program.

This is the mission that no one really wants to have to carry out, an actual long-range strike on Iran’s nuclear program and facilities built for them by Russia over the last decade and an half. But at some point, either Israel and perhaps America are going to go after Iran, or Iran is actually going to build a nuclear weapon or weapons with which to fire against Israel. Either way, and according to my King James Bible, it’s going to happen.

“For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, and that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses.” Joshua 11:20 (KJB)

The stunning recent election of Benjamin Netanyahu back into office for what constitutes his fifth term as prime minister of Israel adds a tantalizing layer of complexity to the overall situation. Bibi is famously a hawk, and has said many times that Israel needs to take out the Iranian nuclear program for Israel’s safety. Looks like he just might have his end times wish come true, but oh, at what cost?

Israel, US to hold air drill simulating striking Iran nuclear program

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: The drill will take place from Tuesday until Thursday over the Mediterranean Sea and Israel. It will include long-range flights such as those that Israeli pilots might need to make in order to reach the Islamic Republic.

The exercise will include refuelers as well as fighter jets from both forces. Washington and Israel have signed an agreement that would see the US come to assist Israel with missile defense in times of war, and the two militaries have held numerous joint air defense exercises in recent years.

Iran, which possesses over 1,000 short- and medium-range ballistic missiles, continues to smuggle weapons to countries and non-state actors such as Hezbollah, which is estimated to have an arsenal of some 50,000 missiles on Israel’s northern border.

With tensions high over Iran’s nuclear program and regional hostility, Israel and the Islamic Republic have been threatening each other with senior officers stating that their militaries are capable of striking the other.

Israel has significantly increased its readiness level and has taken steps throughout the past year to prepare a credible military option against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

The NIS 58 billion defense budget set for the IDF in the coming year is expected to allow the Israeli military to focus on the threats posed by Iran across the region, with some NIS 3.5b. designated specifically for this.

The upcoming drill was discussed by IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kohavi during his visit to Washington last week. Kohavi, who returned to Israel a day earlier than planned following a deadly double bombing in Jerusalem, met with senior American officials including Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, and CENTCOM Commander Gen. Michael Kurilla. READ MORE

UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak Turns Against Israel By Refusing To Follow Through On His Previous Pledge To Move The British Embassy To Jerusalem

Published

on

uk-prime-minister-rishi-sunak-reverses-pledge-to-move-british-embassy-from-tel-aviv-to-jerusalem
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has apparently scrapped plans to look at moving Britain’s embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, despite previously claiming to support its recognition.

Back after World War I, England lost their status as a world superpower by betraying the Jews in what is known as the Balfour Declaration. In a nutshell, they promised to create a homeland for the Jews in Palestine, and reneged on their promise. Just this week, newly-elected Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who had promised to move the British embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, showing recognition for Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reversed course and now has refused to do it. Why? Because Rishi Sunak does not believe that Jerusalem is part of Israel, regardless of any previous statements he may have made.

“And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the LORD fought against the enemies of Israel.” 2 Chronicles 20:29 (KJB) 

As we told you this afternoon on our Friday Prophecy News Podcast, the Middle East is a beehive of end times activity, and the stage has been set for the soon arrival of Antichrist. Benjamin Netanyahu has been returned to power in a miraculous turn of events, and the table appears to be nearly set for the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. What does all this mean? It means that the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, a doctrine no longer preached in hardly any Christian church, is mere moments away. The last Baptist church I was a part of didn’t preach one sermon on the Rapture, rightly dividing, or dispensational truth, and your church probably hasn’t either. That’s why we’re here, to stand in the gap and give you the Bible, so you can know just how close we really are. And guess what? We are closer than you could possibly imagine.

PM Rishi Sunak Scraps Planning to Move British Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Prime Minister Sunak’s short-lived predecessor as premier, Liz Truss, said she would “review a move” of the British embassy to Israel during her campaign for the Conservative Party leadership in August, following in the footsteps of President Donald Trump.

While the State of Israel officially regards Jerusalem as its capital, and key institutions including the Knesset (legislature), Supreme Court, central bank, and several government ministries are sited there, principally in the neighbourhood of Givat Ram, most Western countries do not recognise it as such and have their embassies commute into the city from bases in Tel Aviv, in order to appease the Palestinian Authority and various Islamic polities.

Sorry, Just Kidding!

Sunak, who lost to Liz Truss in the Conservative Party leadership race but was installed by fellow MPs shortly afterwards without an election anyway, does not appear willing to buck this trend, with a spokesman for 10 Downing Street that a move had been “looked at” but there are now “no plans to move the British embassy,” according to the left-wing Guardian.

This is despite the fact that, while he was running for leader in August, Sunak claimed he believed that Jerusalem was “undisputedly the historic capital” of Israel and that there was “clearly” a “very strong case for it to be recognised” as such.

“It is something I would like to do,” he added.

The fact he will apparently not be doing so has been welcomed by Husam Said Zomlot, Head of the Palestinian Mission to the United Kingdom.

“We would like thank the UK government, faith leaders, activists and members of the public whose efforts have helped keep the UK in line with international law in this matter,” Zomlot said. “The question about the location of the UK’s embassy should never have been asked for in the first place.”

Sunak’s climbdown follows an even more dramatic about-face by Australia’s relatively new leftist government, which reversed a decision to recognise even West Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — East Jerusalem, only annexed by Israel in 1980, was not part of the recognition — earlier this month, souring relations with the Israeli government.

The recent change of government in the UK seems to be ushering in not only an economic shift but also a foreign policy shift. It seems that the UK is now backing down from a controversial move proposed by the former Prime Minister Liz Truss to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Zelenskyy Demands That Israel Join In The Fighting Against Russia In Ukraine, But The Jews Would Be Wise To Stay Far Away From That Trap

Published

on

zelenskyy-demands-israel-join-fight-in-ukraine-against-russia-putin
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Monday called on Israel to join the fight against Russia and repeated a request for Israeli air defense systems.

Hey Israel, thinking about fighting against Russia in the regional war taking place in Ukraine right now? Let me help y’all out. “Nooooooooo!!!!!” Now, I feel bad for the Ukrainian people, and we have already sent them 12,000 Bibles, but this war if you study war at all is one of the phoniest wars you will ever see. In fact, it’s not a war at all, it is a cover for something else. But regardless of how you personally feel about it, this is one fight that Israel should have nothing to do with.

“Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.” Habakkuk 1:5 (KJB)

Since Russia began the military conflict, it has been the strangest war you’ve ever seen. Members of the US Congress could come and go as they please, engaging in staged displays and photo ops like they were at the mall. Rock band U2 staged an unmolested concert in the subway, where did we ever see that in WWII? Of course. Ukrainian president Zelenskyy and his wife have made the most of it on social media while raising close to $100 billion in ‘defense funds’. Yes sir, strangest ‘war’ I have ever seen. Israel, you’d be well advised to stay out of this carefully crafted and concocted conflict.

Ukraine’s Zelenskyy asks Israel to join fight against Russia

FROM NASDAQ: “Isn’t it time for your state to choose who you are with as well?” Zelenskiy said in a video speech to a conference for the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

“Is it with the democratic world, which is fighting side by side against the existential threat to its existence? Or with those who turn a blind eye to Russian terror, even when the cost of continued terror is the complete destruction of global security,” he said.

Israel has condemned the Russian invasion. But it has been wary of straining relations with Moscow, a power broker in neighbouring Syria where Israeli forces frequently attack pro-Iranian militia, and wants to ensure the wellbeing of Russia’s Jews.

The country faced some criticism of its stance in Washington on Monday. Republican U.S. Representative Mike Turner told reporters on a conference call after he travelled to Ukraine that he was “personally disappointed” with Israel.

“We have never seen, since Bosnia, this level of absolute murderous thuggery against innocent civilians since World War Two and this is the time for all democracies and all countries that have a moral compass to stand together against this type of brutality,” said Turner, who holds senior positions on the House of Representatives intelligence and Armed Services committees.

Israel, which will choose a new government in an election on Nov. 1, has limited its assistance to deliveries of humanitarian aid and defensive equipment. Most recently it offered to help Ukrainians develop air attack alerts for civilians. Zelenskiy said that was not enough and asked that Israeli leaders reconsider sending air defenses as well. He has made the same appeal a number of times since the war started in February. READ MORE
