Panetta Believes Israel Will Attack Iran in April, May, or June 2012



The USA’s Secretary of Defense apparently made an astounding public admission:

US secretary of defense is concerned Israel will launch an attack before Iran enters so-called “immunity zone” when military strike won’t bust Iran’s nuclear facilities, ‘Washington Post’ reports.

United States Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta believes that Israel will attack Iran in April, May or June, the Washington Post reported Thursday.

His position is consistent with those of certain other analysts as well as some positions speculated here.  Of course, there are many reasons he might have said that.  Also notice the following news items:

New York Times – ‎2 February 2012

JERUSALEM – A senior Israeli official said Thursday that the missile testing site near Tehran that was destroyed in a huge explosion three months ago was developing missiles with a range of some 6000 miles aimed at the United States.

WASHINGTON — Even as al-Qaida’s ability to attack the United States continues to diminish, Iran is more willing to attack the United States and American interests overseas, the top U.S. intelligence official told Congress on Tuesday.

Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper said that a failed 2011 plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States in Washington has convinced U.S. intelligence officials that the leaders of the Iranian government are increasingly likely to support attacks on U.S. soil.

“Some Iranian officials — probably including Supreme Leader Ali Khameni — have changed their calculus and are now willing to conduct an attack in the United States,” said Clapper in written testimony submitted to Senate Select Committee on Intelligence…

If the USA really believes that Iran may attack it, the USA may be more willing to publicly somewhat support Israel in its efforts.  Perhaps that is what Secretary Panetta is starting to do.  Israel and the USA will likely remain at least partial allies for a while (cf. Daniel 11:27-39), though the relationship has been strained tremendously since Barack Obama became US President.

World events continue to align with Bible prophecy.  The Bible also shows that a reshuffling of the powers currently in the Middle East needs to occur as the King of the South still needs to rise up (Daniel 11:40).

However, a few years before that leader and his European counterpart (the King of the North) reach the maximums of their power, an apparent peace deal will come (Daniel 9:27).  Of course, it may take a war and/or economic pressure to persuade some of the parties to make this type of deal.  A regional war, that somewhat gets out of control and may involve Syria and others (including many based in Lebanon), beyond Iran and Israel is something I have warned could happen for some time now and really could be a factor that ultimately leads to the fulfillment of Daniel 9:27.

If Iran believes it is going to be attacked, this may encourage Iran to first attack Israel or at least more directly provoke Israel to attack.

If there is a regional war and Syria is highly involved, then there is a chance its capital will be destroyed as ultimately Damascus will be (Isaiah 17:1).

Events are heating up in the Middle East.  “And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!” (Mark 13:37).
