US could finish Iran’s nuclear facilities in less than a night – Barak

“An American military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities would take “a fraction of one night” to complete, if one was ordered by President Obama, said former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak Thursday night. He was speaking to the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Barak went on to say that this would be a simpler operation for the US than the assault planned last year against Bashar Assad’s chemical weapons infrastructure. “The American administration has changed its objective from no nuclear military Iran to no nuclear military Iran during the term of this administration,” Barak said, adding that the US “is perceived to have been weakened” over the last several years.”

They could but they won’t. You can have all the power but if you lack the will that power is useless.

Defense minister calls off Israeli home front exercise

“A defense ministry source reported Friday that Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and Chief of Staff Lt. Gen.

The source added that the cancellation marked the total winding-down of training projects for the army and security forces, as a result of budget cuts. “This is not a game or a threat. It’s just reality,” he said.”

Potential Israel partner Cyprus looks to speed gas search

Why is the 1920 San Remo Resolution for Israel being Ignored?

“What took place in San Remo in 1920 made Israel’s right to exist into an international legally binding and unavoidable documented fact. Additionally, the Bible is replete with references to the Land of Israel (never Palestine) being given to the Jewish people by God in places like Genesis 12:7, 13:15, 15:18, 17:7-8, 25:5-6, 26:3, 28:3-4 Exodus 2:24, Deuteronomy 1:8, 7:7-9, Leviticus 25:23, Psalm 89:30-37, Jeremiah 31:35-37 and Ezekiel 37:11-12 among many others.
Unfortunately, today when it comes to Israel and the Jewish people, fact-finding is the last thing that people are interested in! Not to mention that many prophecies were fulfilled in 1948 when Israel was reborn. Here is a short list*

1. Jacob’s descendants would regain control of Israel – Amos 9:14-15
2. Israel would be brought back to life – Ezekiel 37:10-14
3. Isaiah spoke of an Israel being reborn in one day – Isaiah 66:7-8
4. Israel would be re-established as a united nation – Ezekiel 37:21-22
5. The second Israel would be more impressive than the first – Jeremiah 16:14-15
6. Ezekiel predicted when Israel would be re-established – Ezekiel 4:3-6
7. The people of Israel would return to “their own land” – Ezekiel 34:13
8. God would watch over the people of Israel – Jeremiah 31:10
9. Israel’s army would be disproportionately powerful – Leviticus 26:3, 7-8
10.The fortunes of the people of Israel would be restored – Deuteronomy 30:3-5″
