Israel has concerns about its safety and security and apparently made an unusual plan:
‘Israel to Give Obama 12 Hours Notice on Attacking Iran’Israel told visiting US Gen. Dempsey that Obama would get no more than 12 hours notice before an attack on Iran, the London Times reports.
This is a relatively odd position for a formerly very, very close USA ally to take.
Currently, since the death of an Iranian nuclear scientist (which some are blaming on Israel), the effects of the embargoes against Iran, and USA pressure, Israel may wait before having a direct major attack in Iran. On the other hand, its statement indicates that it is seriously considering an attack.
And more is going on in the Middle East. Notice the following two headlines from today:
Iran really does not want those sanctions and they may affect it as well as Syria.
Syria’s President Assad must realize that he is under increased pressure on many fronts. The embargoes on his country, those developing with Iran, civil unrest in Syria, and the Arab League turning against him may contribute to him lashing out more.
It remains possible that the problems in Iran and Syria may encourage those nations to attack Israel or at least more directly provoke Israel to attack.
Since Bible prophecy tells of a time when Damascus will cease being a city (Isaiah 17:1), the idea for war in the area is consistent with end-time prophecy.
It may be that it will take a regional war to bring about the apparent peace deal in Daniel 9:27. (Of course, it is possible that it will be through other negotiations and/or even “confirming” the old Oslo Accords that Daniel 9:27 will be fulfilled.)
Jesus said to watch (Mark 13) and Israel’s and Assad’s statements are items that seem to of the nature to be watched.
