War between Israel and Gaza? (Nov 15, 2012)


Israel and the Palestinians are on the verge of war. Are we seeing the beginnings of the Psalm 83 war and the Ezekiel 38-39 war?

Region on the precipice: Israel, Gaza slide closer to war neither side wants

Three Israelis were killed when their apartment building was struck by a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip, an attack that intensified tensions between Israel and Palestinian militants. The incident came after Hamas’ top military commander and others were killed in a series of airstrikes by the Jewish state. NBC’s Martin Fletcher reports.

News analysis

TEL AVIV, Israel – Israel has called up army reserves, the standing army is poised for a ground invasion of Gaza, the air force and navy is attacking a list of specified targets, mostly Hamas fighters and weapons facilities.  All is set for war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

The only sure thing, in this fog of war, is that nobody actually wants the war to take place — not Israel, not Hamas.

It is a tightrope of the most dangerous kind.

Israel: Three civilians killed by rockets fired from Gaza as violence escalates

Israel is resolved to end the Palestinian rocket attacks on its southern cities and communities — 100 rockets fired in the five days before Israel’s response and, at the time of writing, 150 since.

Israel’s surprise attack Wednesday killed the man who has been on top of Israel’s hit list for a decade, Hamas military commander Ahmed Jabari, accused of being responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Israelis, as well as taking part in the kidnapping of Gilad Shalit, the Israeli soldier who was held hostage in Gaza for five years.

Two sides exchange deadly airstrikes, rocket attacks.

But just as significant, according to the Israeli military, its precision air attacks destroyed most of Hamas’ stockpile of long-range Fajr rockets, whose 47-mile range threatens cities in central Israel, including the country’s largest, Tel Aviv.

Not only would that end the threat, but it would end the threat of unplanned escalation. For if Tel Aviv suffered casualties from rocket attacks, the government would have no choice but to order the ground invasion of Gaza.

To illustrate the precipice on which the region now stands, Hamas said it had fired a 1.1 ton, Iranian-made Fajr rocket at Tel Aviv, but there was no reported impact in the Israeli city and the claim appeared to be unfounded.

A Fajr rocket would likely kill and injure many if it exploded in an unprepared city.

Israeli leaders indicate that a new offensive against Islamic militant commanders is underway. NBC’s Martin Fletcher reports.

Israel’s southern cities, subject for years to Palestinian rocket attacks, are well prepared. There was no school for children within 25 miles of Gaza, which is the range of the smaller Fajr 3 rocket, and residents were told to stay within a hundred yards of a bomb shelter as air sirens sounded every few minutes.

The three Israelis killed when a rocket hit their apartment building in Kiryat Malachi were standing by the window, looking out, instead of following instructions and staying in a safer place.

In their building, an older one, there was no bomb shelter. The advice, which they ignored, was to shelter in the more solidly constructed central stairwell.

Israel kills Hamas military chief, officials say

Israeli war planes and navy ships continued to pound Hamas targets in Gaza Thursday, while warning that a wider operation could ensue. Hamas is returning fire — while the United Nations has appealed for an end to the violence.

So far, that appeal is being ignored as each side here tries to gain the advantage.

But how they define that advantage could lead them over the edge into the wider war neither side wants.

Today Mr. Gary Stearman of http://www.prophecyinthenews.com had this to say of the constant bombardment of rockets into Israel from the North, West and South.

  1. I believe that the fact that all these events are happening against most people’s will is a sure sign that its the last decade of this world system.
    No one neither Israel nor surrounding states want Psalms 83 war but as per bible prophecy its happening. No one wants BHO to be the antichrist but he seem to be fitting all necessary criteria.

    Those like me who are traditional pretrib Rapture believers are starting to consider seriously a mid trib pre wrath Rapture. Those like Dewey ? Bruton (Daniel’s timeline best watched on you tube), who have done an almost perfect breakdown of Daniel’s 70th week dont believe in or want a Rapture- but all signs are that they have helped us confirm a pre wrath Rapture possible date 22nd March 2013 if not sooner.
    No one not even the ‘elite’ illuminati want an economic meltdown anymore but that is what they are getting. Effectivley Revelations chapter 6 is happening and has by my calculations been happening since 9/9/2009 which I have just discovered is BHO speech day about the healthcare refom bill. In addition said RFID chip is said to be implemented from March 23rd 2013 a day after possible Rapture date. Using various sources of info especially Daniel’ timeline teaching, I calculated the 7 year tribulation to have started on 9/9/2009. 999 for us in the U.K is equivalent to America’s 911-emergency!

    Further someone sent me this morning further confirmation about planet x in the system so now seal 6 possibly definately by April 2013. Rapture for prewrathers thought to be at end of seal 6! RAPTURE round the corner.
