The former chief of staff to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Saturday 02/18/12 that an Israeli strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities is “imminent.”
Naftali Bennett appeared on the Fox News program “Huckabee” and painted a picture of an imperiled world with a nuclear Iran, saying Israel will not hesitate to take action if necessary. Bennett stressed that time is of the essence.
“We’re at the very last moment. This is going to be the first time in history that a maniacal, radical Islamic regime will acquire a nuclear weapon,” he said. “The day after they have a bomb will be a different day for the entire world.”
Because the Obama administration continues to drag it’s feet – only paying lip service the Iranian threat – the tiny nation of Israel feels the pressure of going it alone to not only protect itself but also the rest of the world.
There was the confidence of conviction in Bennett’s voice as he referred to Iran as “an octopus of terror”. With boiling vehemence, the former Netanyahu Chief of Staff elucidated to host Mike Huckabee “We have to stop them, and yes, it is imminent.”
The day after Iran has a nuclear weapon will certainly be a different day for the world – not just Israel. Indeed, Israel is cornered and must move to protect herself; and in that she will be supernaturally protected. Still, a strike on Iranian nuclear installations will be tantamount to smacking a hornet’s nest with a Louisville Slugger. The maddened stinging insects will swarm and seek reprisal; taking human form not only through the Iranian military but through Hamas, Hezbollah, other Middle Eastern nations, and quite possibly Russia and China.
An attack on Iranian nuclear installations would list among the most seminal moments in world history. As the world economy continues to deteriorate while Syria, Egypt, Yemen, and Afghanistan are in brutal upheaval; as gasoline prices in late February are approaching $5.00 a gallon in some U.S. cities – the blow-back from this drastic albeit necessary move on Iran’s nuke sites will be colossal.
It has been slow, deliberate, and manipulated; but we are moving into the end of days – one day at a time. This is not the end of the world but instead the end of the world as we know it.
An Israeli assault on Iran could trigger the Gog-Magog War as prophesied biblically in the book of Ezekiel through chapters 38 and 39. As Iranian proxies Hamas and Hezbollah are quartered in Syria’s capital, the destruction of that embattled nation’s city of Damascus as prophesied in Isaiah 17:1 could likewise be a strong possibility as those Islamic terror groups could retaliate against Israel with weapons of mass destruction.
As the storm gathers we must stock our storehouses in anticipation of extreme hardship while living through this uncertainty one day at a time. And as this storm approaches, we who embrace the saving grace of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords are wise to prepare for the long haul, but know that we could be called-up on no notice.
