Israel Shocker! It Was Netanyahu and NOT Obama That Cancelled War Games

This was the first time Israel had ever postponed a joint military exercise; it generated a seismic moment in relations between the US and Israel at a time when Iran has never been so close to producing a nuclear weapon. It was perceived as a mark of Israel’s disapproval for the administration’s apparent hesitancy in going through with the only tough sanctions with any chance of working against Iran’s nuclear weapon program: penalizing its central bank and blocking payments for its petroleum exports.

Joint US-Israel drill called off by Netanyahu, to Washington’s surprise

Debkafile’s sources disclose exclusively that, contrary to recent reports published in Washington, Jerusalem – and this site too – it was Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, not the Obama administration, who decided to call off the biggest ever joint US-Israeli military exercise Austere Challenge 12 scheduled for April 2012.

Israel is slowing starting to come to the understanding that perhaps Obama does not have their best interests at heart

Washington was taken aback by the decision. It was perceived as a mark of Israel’s disapproval for the administration’s apparent hesitancy in going through with the only tough sanctions with any chance of working against Iran’s nuclear weapon program: penalizing its central bank and blocking payments for its petroleum exports.

This was the first time Israel had ever postponed a joint military exercise; it generated a seismic moment in relations between the US and Israel at a time when Iran has never been so close to producing a nuclear weapon.

This week, Netanyahu further orchestrated a series of uncharacteristically critical statements by senior ministers: Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon called the Obama administration “hesitant” (Jan. 15), after which Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman urged the Americans to “move from words to deeds” (Jan 16). The underlying message was that the Israeli government felt free to attack Iran’s nuclear sites on its own if necessary and at a time of its choosing. Debkafile’s sources report that Netanyahu decided on this extreme course after careful consideration when he judged the Obama administration’s resolve to preempt a nuclear Iran to be flagging, as indicated by four omissions:

1. Washington has taken no action against Iran’s capture of the RQ-170 stealth drone on Dec. 4 more than a month after the event, and not even pressed President Obama’s demand of Dec. 12 for the drone’s return. Tehran, for its part, continues to make hay from the event: This week, our Iranian sources report, the Islamic Republic circulated a new computer game called “Down the RQ-170.” Players assemble the drone from the components shown on their screens and then launch it for attacks on America.

2. Silence from Washington also greeted the start of 20-percent grade uranium enrichment at the underground Fordo facility near Qom when it was announced Jan. 9. Last November, Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned in two US TV interviews (Nov. 17 and 22) that as soon as the Fordo facility went on stream, Iran would start whisking the rest of its nuclear facilities into underground bunkers, out of reach and sight of US and Israeli surveillance.

Barak made it clear at the time that Israel could not live with this development; therefore, the Netanyahu government believes Israel’s credibility is now at stake.
3. Exactly three weeks ago, on Jan. 3 Lt. Gen. Ataollah Salehi, Iran’s Army chief, announced that the aircraft carrier USS Stennis and other “enemy ships” would henceforth be barred from entering the Persian Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz . Yet since then, no US carrier has put this threat to the test by attempting a crossing. Tehran has been left to crow.

4. Even after approving sanctions on Iran’s central bank and energy industry, the White House announced they would be introduced in stages in the course of the year. According to Israeli’s calculus, another six months free of stiff penalties will give Iran respite for bringing its nuclear weapon program to a dangerous and irreversible level. 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

Published

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

Exit Polls Show Benjamin Netanyahu Winning Re-election As Prime Minister Of Israel, Will Rabbi Menachem Schneerson’s End Times ‘Prophecy’ Actually Happen?

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Former prime minister and Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu is set to become Israel’s next prime minister, according to Tuesday night’s exit polls.

Well, well, well, the news coming out of Israel right now shows Benjamin Netanyahu with the 61-seat bloc he needs, and all he has to do to win is fend off a last-minute-surge from the Arab Balad Party which Bibi should be able to do. If he does win, with all the things we’ve been discussing on the Podcast lately about 2023, it should be a wild ride indeed. Count me in, up and out of here! Here’s some ‘fun facts’ – 5 in the Bible is the number of death and judgment, Netanyahu would be a 5-time prime minister, based on a 4-year term and he’s had 4 of them. Right now it is year 5783 on the Hebrew calendar, add them up and what do you get? 5. The election today is election number 5 in the past 4 years, something also unprecedented. 5-by-5 is also the dimensions of the brazen laver for the sacrifice in the Temple.

“Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:” Isaiah 28:14,15 (KJB)

If you believe the prophets, and we most certainly do, then you already know that Israel has no king over them at the time of the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. Instead, they have a bunch of secular and religious people running the country, Isaiah calls them ‘scornful men’ because they do not honor the God of their own fathers. (see Jeremiah 22:1-10) Remember the article from the other day where we showed you the ‘prophecy’ of Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, the ‘Moshiach Rebbe’ who ‘prophesied’ before his death that Benjamin Netanyahu would be in power at the start of the ‘messianic age’? If Netanyahu wins, that just might be the most incredible coincidence in our modern era. Here’s to (Blessed) hoping!

Benjamin Netanyahu predicted to win Israel election

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: In an update to the exit polls, the Arab party Balad was said to be close to crossing the threshold. If that happens, Netanyahu’s bloc will drop to 60 seats, one short of a coalition majority. Likud sent an urgent letter to the police commissioner on Tuesday night demanding that allegations of voter fraud in the Arab sector be immediately investigated.

According to the polls, Netanyahu’s bloc, which includes Likud, Religious Zionist Party (RZP), United Torah Judaism (UTJ) and Shas, crossed the 61-seat threshold and will be able to form the next coalition. In some of the polls his bloc reached 62 seats.

What do the exit polls say?

Netanyahu’s Likud party is expected to receive 30 seats according to Channel 12 and 31 seats according to Channel 13, while Lapid’s Yesh Atid party is expected to get 24 seats according to both polls.

The Religious Zionist Party – led by Itamar Ben-Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich – saw a dramatic rise in contrast to previous years with both channels reporting 14 seats. Defense Minister Benny Gantz’s National Unity Party is expected to get 11 seats (Channel 12) or 12 seats (Channel 13), while Yisrael Beytenu gets 4 in both polls. READ MORE

No, The Biblical Messiah Is Not Preparing To Make An Appearance To The Jews Just Yet, But There Is A Tantalizing Potential Prophetic Nugget Here Anyway

Published

on

Rebbe-Menachem-Mendel-Schneerson-Seventh-Lubavitcher-Rabbi-Messiah-Now-Moschiach
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Decades ago, Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri as well as the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, both predicted that Benjamin Netanyahu would be the State of Israel’s last prime minister prior to the Messianic Age.

Back in the closing decades of the twentieth century, there was a Lubavitcher Rebbe, or ‘rabbi’, named Menachem Schneerson who had a very large and enthusiastic following who believed that he was, in fact, the promised biblical Messiah. Only problem was, it was not based not so much on the prophets in the Bible, but more on Jewish mysticism. In the 1990’s, posters proclaiming ‘Messiah Is Here’ began popping up for a time before dying out. During the New World Order global lockdown, they resurfaced and now seem to be gaining speed.

“And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.” Zechariah 14:9 (KJB)

Now here is where things get interesting. Decades ago, both Rebbe Menachem Schneerson and another Jewish sage named Yitzhak Kaduri ‘prophesied’ that Benjamin Netanyahu would be the State of Israel’s last prime minister prior to the Messianic Age. Israel has their elections on November 1st, 4 days from today as I write this, and guess who is in the lead according to the latest polls to be their next prime minister? If you guessed Bibi Netanyahu, you’d be correct. Pretty neat, wouldn’t you say? But let’s get back to the Bible for a moment before we get too crazy. The Bible says that the Church is going to be removed to meet Messiah in the clouds, while down on the ground the Jews and Israel actually meet the false Messiah known as Antichrist. The Jews have rejected the actual Messiah, Jesus Christ, so that means God will send them the ‘strong delusion’ instead to wake them up. That’s what’s coming for Israel next, so pray for them as they prepare to enter into the time of Jacob’s trouble.

Israeli Rabbi Says He’s Already Holding Meetings With Messiah

FROM ISRAEL TODAY: Rabbi Yaakov Zisholtz told religious broadcaster Radio 2000 that Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky (who passed away earlier this year) had told him that he (Kanievsky) was already in direct contact with the Messiah. To understand why religious Jews are taking this seriously, it’s important to know that Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky was considered one of the two or three top rabbis of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Israel.

And Rabbi Zisholtz says that Kanievsky and others of the mystical “concealed” rabbis had tasked him with informing the public of the Messiah’s imminent arrival.

Rabbi Zisholtz began his explosive three-hour interview with a warning:

“…the process of redemption is about to start happening very quickly and at a fast pace. It is important that people remain calm and steady to act properly in the right time.

“There is a potential Messiah in every generation and there are righteous men who know precisely who it is. This is, of course, true in this generation.

“Getting the word out now that the Messiah is closer than ever is a matter of life and death. Haven’t you heard of Gog and Magog? That is what is going to happen very soon. Right now, the situation is explosive more than you can possibly imagine. Everyone needs to know whether they are on the inside or if they are going to be left out.”

He went on to reiterate a number of signs of which prominent rabbis have taken note and that they firmly believe to be evidence of the coming of Messiah.

Rabbi Dov Kook, as everyone knows, is a very righteous man. He is one of the greatest men of our generation…[and] ten years ago, when Israel was suffering from a horrible drought, someone asked Rabbi Kook when the Sea of Galilee will again be full.

“Rabbi Kook responded that when the Messiah arrives, the Sea of Galilee will be full. In a few weeks, the Sea of Galilee will be full for the first time since Rabbi Kook made this statement.”

“Another righteous rabbi said that according to the current situation in heaven, there will not be Israeli elections – rather, there will be a war. If the elections do take place, it’s pointless since it will end like the other elections; no government will come out of it.”

Decades ago, Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, one of modern Israel’s most revered sages, as well as the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, both predicted that Benjamin Netanyahu would be the State of Israel’s last prime minister prior to the Messianic Age. A great many, if not most of the ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel continue to believe that to be true.

As Israel’s latest round of elections near (Nov. 1, 2022), Netanyahu again looks poised for victory. READ MORE

Was Menachem Schneerson the Messiah?

When Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson became leader of Chabad-Lubavitch in 1951, he created a global phenomenon that would change Judaism forever. Chabad-Lubavitch is one part of the greater revival movement called Hasidic Judaism which developed in the 18th century and began to spread across Europe with each Hasidic court following their own religious leader or “Rebbe.”
