[ISRAELUPDATE] War Update July 30 - David Dolan - Jerusalem

Shalom from Jerusalem,

The prospect that a full-scale Muslim-Israeli Mideast conflict will soon break out seemed to increase dramatically today after a powerful Israeli bomb landed overnight right next to a four story building in a Shiite village in southern Lebanon. The blast caused the building to collapse upon scores of Lebanese civilians, including many children, who were reportedly instantly killed. The attack was labeled a "deliberate massacre of our innocent martyrs" by Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Seniora, who furiously called for his regional "Muslim brethren to stand united in the face of the Israeli war criminals"—an apparent call for military intervention.

Speaking on Israel radio in the past few hours, several Israeli analysts say the Sunni politician is apparently hoping, along with Hizbullah Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, that Syria might open up a second warfront on the disputed Golan Heights, which …


Atmosphere of war in Syria -

Syrian reporter: In Syria there is atmosphere of eve of war

Exclusive: In conversation in Damascus, senior Syrian journalist tells about sentiments in Syria ('as if there will be war any moment'); talks about military preparations in his country ('identifying your reinforcements in Golan Heights'); and estimates that Israeli pounding in Lebanon to intensify grassroots support of Nasrallah and his organization. Also in Syria, he says, Nasrallah more popular than ever

As the conflict with Hizbullah in Lebanon escalates by the day, the question of Syria's involvement in the conflict becomes increasingly more relevant.

"The atmosphere in Syria is in every way an atmosphere of war, or at least of the eve of war. Syrian television for the first time since

the '80's has started broadcasting Syrian military marches and nationalistic songs. There is not difference between Syrian television broadcasts and Al-Manar broadca…


Israel and the West in the crosshairs
Iran's Apocalyptic War Plan has Begun; Israel First, West Next

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Northeast Intelligence Network,

Wednesday, July 26, 2006

The wave of the Islamic revolution will soon reach the entire world."-- said Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, just 6 days after becoming Iran’s President

1,500 Islamic terrorist fighters from Iraqi Shi'ite militia in Baghdad recruited to fight Israel in Lebanon – Sunni’s also calling for volunteers

As attacks on Israel and on Israeli troops continued, Israeli news media is reporting that about 18,000 Israeli soldiers have now been mobilized for operations in Lebanon and Gaza. Hezbollah's rocket attacks on northern Israeli cities and towns have been relentless despite the ongoing Israeli operations; more than 90 rockets landed in Israel yesterday, killing two people in Haifa, one when rocket shrapnel hit a man’s car and another when a man’s carpentry shop was struck by a missile.



The Time Shall Come - Commentary on the News

Jack Kinsella - Omega Letter Editor -

"And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows." (Matthew 24:5-6)

The verses quoted above were part of Jesus' response to the question, "What will be the sign of Thy coming and of the end of the world?" (Matthew 24:3)

The Lord's reply to the question is known to Bible scholars as the "Olivet Discourse" because, 1) Jesus was standing 'upon the Mount of Olives' at the time, and; 2) His answer, which is contained in the three Synoptic Gospels, fills the entire chapter. It is one of the most lengthy teaching discourses in the New Testament.

The Olivet Discourse focuses its…



For students of Bible prophecy, even the title of this communiqué should set off alarm sirens. I just received some electrifying intelligence data. First, from the Debka-Net-Weekly's briefing. And second, from some personal intelligence sources (I carefully guard) that confirm Debka's report.

Russia, Iran and Syria have entered a defense pact that is in the process of altering the balance of power in the entire Middle East. Russia's part in the pact has been kept relatively secret for a long time. But the facts reveal a long steady Russian commitment to the Iranian nuclear program and arms supply to Syria.

A Mossad General shared with me in confidence that he had personally traced the hiring and importation to Iran 283 of the defunct Soviet Union's top nuclear and missile scientists. This meeting took place in February of 1991.

I shared this information with no one until nine months later when it was…


The Middle East is Back on the Brink of All Out War - OUT of ZION Ministries -

Israel is Under Attack

In 1990 Israel withdrew from the 20 km security zone in South Lebanon that they had maintained as a buffer zone against Hizb'Allah rocket attacks. Israel then withdrew from the Gaza Strip in August 2005 in a " land for peace " deal. The Palestinians got the land, but all Israel got was more Kassam rocket attacks in the last eight months than during the last 10 years. Then out of the blue, in the morning of Wednesday July 12th, Hizb'Allah declared war on Israel on as they infiltrated across the northern border with Lebanon, killing 8 soldiers and taking 2 prisoner. Israel and Hizb'Allah have been involved in a tit for tat campaign ever since. More than 1000 rockets have struck Israeli towns and cities, killing 14 civilians and injuring hundreds more, and causing serious damage to building and infrastructure. It is now Tuesday morning. I am writin…


July 17

Praying for World War III?

Once again the nation of Israel has become the center of world attention. The unrest started two weeks ago in the Gaza Strip area when Palestinian forces tunneled into Israel, killing two soldiers and abducting Corporal Gilad Shalit in a raid. A few days later, the situation was made worse when Hezbollah forces opened up a northern front, killing eight soldiers and taking two more captive. Hezbollah has also been firing rockets into northern Israel.

The Israeli military has responded to the unprovoked attack with a series of bombings. It has bombed several transportation hubs and a command center used by the terrorists. There are some reports that Israel has sent strong warnings to Iran and Syria that could lead to a wider conflict.

Whenever there is a blow-up in the Middle East, I often get emails from people who think I’m sitting at my computer and salivating all over myself with glee over the prospect of war. Here is one good example:

“A friend and I f…


"Isaiah 17, An Oracle Concerning Damascus" - Jack Kelley -

Isaiah 17: An Oracle Concerning Damascus: The situation between Hezbollah and Israel is heating up, and nobody seems able (or even willing) to stop it. The US and Russia have agreed that Israel has a right to defend itself from unprovoked aggression, and even the moderate Arab states have questioned Hezbollah's motives.

At the recent emergency meeting of Arab Foreign Ministers sharp rifts erupted as moderate Arab states denounced Hezbollah for starting the conflict, according to Fox News.

Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal called the group's actions "unexpected, inappropriate and irresponsible," telling his counterparts: "These acts will pull the whole region back to years ago, and we cannot simply accept them."

Supporting his stance were representatives of Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Iraq, the Palestinian Authority, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, delegates said.



The burden of Damascus- Chuck Missler - (Note: The following article is a couple of years, yet it relates to our current headlines' ...)

". Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap ... And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us." Isaiah 17:1,14

"Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail. How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!" Jeremiah 49:24-25

:: "Taken Away From Being a City.."

Many who study Bible prophecy believe that one of the soon to be fulfilled events may be the destruction of Damascus as prophesied in Isaiah 17. Damascus is the capital of Syria.

Syria is finding their way into the News Headlines more and more lately. Whether it is because of their extremely harsh stance against …


Wake-up call for Israel? - Joseph Farah -

This is a hard column for me to write.

It's difficult because what I need to say about the two-front terrorist attacks on Israel is nothing new.

I've said everything that needs to be said many times in as many new ways as I could imagine.

Suffice it to say I am not shocked by these developments. I am not even a little bit surprised. In fact, I predicted it.

I knew that Israel's evacuation of Gaza was not solving problems with terrorism but creating bigger problems for another day.

I knew that Israel's evacuation of Judea and Samaria was not solving problems with terrorism but creating bigger problems for another day.

I knew that Israel's unilateral evacuation of southern Lebanon was not solving problems with terrorism but creating bigger problems for another day – not to mention selling out the Jewish state's Christian friends in the region.

However, the point of this column is not to point out how smart I am.…




WHILE THE WORLD is concerned about North Korea's missile capabilities and whether Zidane should be banned from soccer for life for his flagrant head butt, the real focus should be on the border between Lebanon and Israel.

Politicians throughout the West are putting blinkers on their eyes when it comes to the Middle East situation, believing it will go away if it's ignored long enough. However, the crisis will only escalate.

As a former Middle East reporter, based in Jerusalem, I believe an extremely volatile confrontation could be only days away. At least that's my opinion.

So what are the reasons for my concern?

Although Israel has endured wars with its enemies ever since its birth as a modern-day nation in 1948 there was always a desire to fight if it needed to for the right to survive. Its pure guts were admirable and then through a series of misadventures it lost that will, at least its most recent gove…
