Why Israel WILL Strike Iran’s Nuke Program

An article from Haaretz.com makes it obvious why Israel will have no choice but to strike Iran, assuming the poll is indeed accurate:

1 in 4 Israelis would consider leaving country if Iran gets nukes’
By Ofri Ilani, Haaretz Correspondent

Some 23 percent of Israelis would consider leaving the country if Iran obtains a nuclear weapon, according to a poll conducted on behalf of the Center for Iranian Studies at Tel Aviv University.

Some 85 percent of respondents said they feared the Islamic Republic would obtain an atomic bomb, 57 percent believed the new U.S. initiative to engage in dialogue with Tehran would fail and 41 percent believed Israel should strike Iran’s nuclear installations without waiting to see whether or how the talks develop.

“The findings are worrying because they reflect an exaggerated and unnecessary fear,” Prof. David Menashri, the head of the Center, said. “Iran’s leadership is religiously extremist but calculated and it understands an unconventional attack on Israel is an act of madness that will destroy Iran. Sadly, the survey shows the Iranian threat works well even without a bomb and thousands of Israelis [already] live in fear and contemplate leaving the country.”

Women are more fearful than men that Iran will obtain nuclear weapons: 83 percent of female respondents said they fear such a scenario in contrast to 78 percent of men; 39 percent of women said they would consider leaving the country in such an event as opposed to 22 percent of men.

Age was also a factor for respondents: 89 percent of those aged 42 and above said they were fearful of a nuclear Iran, in comparison to 61 percent of those aged 18 to 41.

Some 80 percent of left-wing voters and 67 percent of right-wing voters expressed deep concern over a nuclear Iran. Respondents describing themselves as centrists were the most fretful, with 88 percent saying they feared Iran would obtain the bomb.

The poll was conducted among 509 people representative of Israel’s adult population.

Prof. David Menashri’s omniscience and gift of divine foreknowledge as to what Iran will do when they get military nuclear capability notwithstanding, there is clearly a great deal of fear among Israelis as to what will happen when a regime that has repeatedly threatened to annihilate them will do when it gets the bomb.

When a nation like Israel has nearly a quarter of their population seriously considering leaving the country if Iran gets the bomb, it becomes clear that Israel has no choice but to act.  A quarter of the population fleeing would mean the end of the state.  When 85% of the population fears something, the country’s leadership has no choice but to deal with the threat.

Would Israelis hold back if they believed the United States would prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons?  Probably.  But the problem is, they don’t believe that.  And they certainly no longer believe that America under Obama is on their side.  When George Bush was president, fully 88% of Israeli Jews believed the president was “pro-Israel”; today under Obama, only 31% of Israeli Jews think so.

Why would there be such a shocking deterioration of confidence in such a short time?  We can go back to such moments as when he pandered and flip-flopped on the status of Jerusalem – first saying it must remain the undivided capitol of Israel, and then saying the city was merely another final status negotiation point.  Intelligent Jews saw the vacuum of character and commitment that day.  But an even better reason would be the cold indifference the Obama administration displayed toward Israel in  snubbing a senior Israeli general during a recent scheduled visit.

We learned in March of this year that Iran can make 50 nukes with the material they’ve produced so far.

Obama appears willing to dialogue ad infinitum while “Iran vows to continue [it’s] nuclear program.”  Does anyone truly believe that Israel is willing to sit idly by indefinitely while Iran continues to dramatically progress in its obvious goal of developing a nuclear arsenal?

And how is Obama responding to this Iranian resolve? Headline: “U.S. may cede to Iran’s nuclear ambitions.”

Israel – an alienated ally of the United States – is well aware that it has been betrayed by Barack Obama. And when Israel attacks Iran’s nuclear program – and it will – that will be a crisis that Barack Obama will have caused due to his own weakness and lack of resolve.

An Israel that does not implicitly trust the United States will take matters into its own hands and attack Iran to defend its right to exist.

If Barack Obama is wise, he will realize that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has absolutely no recourse but to strike Iran unless the latter country’s nuclear program is dismantled within a very short time window.  Obama will realize that such a strike would have grave international ramifications.  He will realize that such a strike could literally result in global destabilization that could even lead to World War III.  And he will seriously begin to ratchet up the pressure on Iran to abandon a program that a country with the world’s second largest proven oil reserves and the second biggest natural gas fields clearly doesn’t need.

But Obama is NOT wise.  So he will do nothing more than quibble over words while Iran – which just launched a ballistic missile capable of striking Israel in an act of clear crystal-clear defiance (with all due respect to Prof. David Menashri’s omniscience) – continues to advance it’s nuclear program to correspond with its successful missile delivery system.

The world will label such an attack “unprovoked.”  A very real question is to what extent Obama will join that chorus.

I would agree that such a strike WOULD be “unprovoked” if it weren’t for the fact that Iran has called for Israel’s destruction.  I would agree that it would be “unprovoked” if Iran or any of the Muslim countries around Israel who would similarly develop their own nuclear weapons had recongized Israel’s right to even exist.  I might even agree tht such an attack would be “unprovoked” if Iran called Israel “Israel” instead of “Zionist entity.” But when a leader of a rogue terrorist regime such as Iran publicly calls for Israel to be “wiped off the map,” the stakes get pretty high when he acquires nuclear weapons that could accomplish precisely that stated goal in the flash of a mushroom cloud.  Particularly when Ahmadinejad last year repeated his threat against Israel, predicting Israel “will soon disappear off the geographical scene.”  Particularly when such a leader has publicly identified himself as an adherent to a radical apocalyptic movement within Islam that calls for violent action to usher in the “Twelth Imam.” Particlarly when he has claimed that he has special insight into Allah’s will.

That leaves Iran literally arming for Armageddon, and any other interpretation is frankly naive.

Some claim that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad doesn’t wield real power.  But that argument falls rather flat on its face when the man who DOESSupreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, publicly denies the Holocaust and calls Israel “a cancerous tumor.”  And the obvious implication of “cancerous tumors” is that they need to be “wiped off the map” and “disappear.”

As an additional plus of Obama’s weakness, the net result of an Iranian nuclear program will be that Sunni Muslim countries – who have worried over Shiite Iran’s nuclear ambitions – will develop their own nuclear weapons programs.  If it’s not bad enough for Israel that Iran is going to develop nuclear weapons, it’s still worse yet that other Muslim countries such as Egypt and Saudi Arabia are almost certain to follow suit by developing their OWN nuclear weapons.

A nuclear arms race in the craziest part of the world is bad enough for the world; but for Israel it is a clear and present danger, if anything – the Holocaust itself included – has ever been.

I’ve been SAYING that an Obama administration would allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons ALL ALONG. Back in April of last year, in urging support for McCain over either Obama or Clinton, I wrote:

A President John McCain can assure the Iranians, “We attacked Iraq when we believed they represented a threat to us, and we will do the same to you. You seriously might want to rethink your plans.” A President John McCain can say to Sunni Arab states such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, “We have stood by Iraq even when it was difficult, and we will do the same for you. You don’t need those weapons; the United States will be there for you.”

And Obama, who can’t say ANY of that, is clearly already blinking – just as I and many others have been predicting he would.

How can anyone wonder why Christians are seeing the pages of the Bible becoming the headlines of tomorrow?

Let’s briefly review what the Scriptures say about Israel, Iran, and the last days.

Zechariah 12:2-3 says, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem.  On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.”

The time is coming when this prophecy, written before two of the three major religions that made its fulfillment possible even existed, will be ultimately fulfilled.

Ezekiel 38-39 describes a massive coalition that will attack Israel led by Russia and Iran.  This coalition of nations are already allied with one another.  The long-ago-prophesied attack only awaits a trigger – such as the impending Israeli strike against the nuclear plants that Russia has built for Iran.

Now Vice President Joe Biden predicted a major international crisis, and indicated that it would not appear as though the Obama administration had any idea whatsoever how to resolve it.  Iran’s determination to continue its nuclear program, the resulting Israeli strike against Iran, and the ensuing chaos in the most volatile part of the world to follow, will certainly more than fit that bill.  The same Joe Biden, for what it’s worth, had previously said that Barack Obama wasn’t ready to deal with foreign policy.

The New Testament predicts a coming Antichrist, or beast, who will ride in on his white horse to save the day, during a time of massive military conflict and economic crisis (Revelation 6:1-6).

I never understood how Americans would come to literally worship this false Messiah (Revelation 13:1-4) and embrace the one-world economic system he would impose (Revelation 13:16-18).  At least, not until the coming of Barack Obama and his literally being hailed as a “messiah.” The picture seems crystal clear, now.

I’ve written so many articles about the looming financial disaster Obama’s spending is creating for the future that it is hard to pick one.  But a ten trillion ton anvil is poised to fall on our economy in the form of massive and unsustainable debt, and send the entire world into chaos.

What will happen to the world after Barack Obama’s policies bankrupt America?

I put much of this scenario together in an article entitled, “Welcome to the hell Barack Obama is marching us toward.”

I don’t know whether the “Twelth Imam” will come or not.  But I do know that the beast is coming.

I hope you’re ready when that future comes for you.

    I agree with everything you write and tried my best to warn people as well. I would add that the Twelfth Imam is already here. His name is Barack. Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam founder, ultra radical who pals around with Wright, Obama’s pastor, both of whom I’m sure you’re familiar with, in no casual terms called Obama “The Messiah” (found on youtube under Farrakhan Obama Messiah search). Of the antichristal ‘trinity’ then, Farrakhan is the False Prophet. Let me know if you think when Israel takes action against Iran, and today someone said on the news it would only be a matter of months till Iran has nukes, do you think that all of the USA will be struck with nukes or just some areas? How much nuclear capability do/will Islamic states have? I would also recommend reading the book by Former PLO terrorist Walid Shoebat, if you haven’t yet, called Why We Want To Kill You and refer it to everyone.

    Ahmadinejad began his speech to the UN the other day saying:

    “Oh God, hasten the arrival of Imam Al-Mahdi and grant him good health and victory and make us his followers and those who attest to his rightfulness.”

    The Imam Al-Mahdi is the Twelfth or Final Imam. And Ahmadinejad believes this imam will only come if his followers force him to reveal himself by a cataclysmic act of violence.

    That is particularly frightening given the fact that Iran is now capable of making at least one nuclear bomb. All they need to do is assemble it (which is the easy part). They have all the materials now.

    Israel will be compelled to launch an attack. Only 4% of Israelis believe Obama gives a damn about Israel according to the latest polls, and a majority of Israelis say they would seriously consider leaving the country if Iran gets the bomb and the means to deliver it. It becomes a matter of survival; if Jews start leaving Israel, Iran wouldn’t even HAVE to use the bomb to destroy Israel; it would simply implode. WHEN is a matter that Mossad will determine; I’m sure they will wait as long as they feel they can, hoping that something else will happen first.

    Iran doesn’t really even have to use nukes to make their bomb deadly. They can proliferate the technology/materials to terrorist groups. Or they can use the bomb as leverage, unleashing a massive wave of terror attacks, or shutting down the Strait of Hormuz (and blockading oil) with impunity due to the bomb that they will threaten to use if attacked.
