“The Air Force launched an attack at a Gaza Strip target affiliated with terror activity. The IAF strike is retaliation for three mortar shells that were launched earlier Tuesday at an IDF troop in the Negev.”
A lot of people are chiming in on the supposed France-Israeli-Gulf state alliance. I am bit skeptical of this alliance. First, Saudi Arabia is denying it. Second, France has said nothing about it’s involvement on the military side. Third, this all seems a little too public to be believable. Both Israel and the Gulf states would want to keep this alliance a secrete. Other than some political influence in the Middle East, France stands to gain nothing to jump in militarily. France loves to jump in when the US leaves a vacuum. But they know their limited. France could not really do much in Mali without the support of the US and Britain. Then there is the US Chairmen of the Joint Chiefs who said today that the US would back Israel in a strike on Iran. Wow, talk about mixed messages. Finally, a Israel-Gulf state alliance dose not seem to fit prophetic scripture. We could be interpreting scripture wrong of course but anyone who works with Israel or helps Israel pays a pretty step price in that region of the world. The Saudi monarchy might see a revolution if it were to let Israeli planes base out of their country.
We reap what we sow. For years Hezbollah has perpetrated atrocities like this around the world. Now God says it is time for them to suffer the same.
Not sure I buy this. Hizballah is desperate but even for them I’m not sure they would go this far.
