WWIII – Prepare for War!


Calling Israel a danger to Islam, the conservative website Alef, with ties to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said the opportunity must not be lost to remove “this corrupting material. It is a ‘jurisprudential justification” to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel, and in that, the Islamic government of Iran must take the helm.” 

Ayatollah: Kill all Jews, annihilate Israel

It’s Monday morning, the day after the Super Bowl, where most Americans gather in select groups and stare at the boob-tube for three hours, while munching on an assortment of snacks that we won’t see again until next year.  It was a good game and both teams played well.  The last pass in the end zone could have won it for the Patriots but that was not to be.  We were entertained at half-time, with spectacle and bombast.  Meanwhile, half a world away the region known as the Middle East is seething.  Here’s why.
Take a close look at the map to the left.  Can you find the nation of Israel?  I thought so….
Now let’s examine each of the nations that are in Israel’s neighborhood.
Syria:  Syria is in the midst of what I would call a civil war.  Thousands of people have been openly murdered by the Assad regime.  Assad has also threatened to reign missiles down on Tel-Aviv if he is attacked or his country imposed with sanctions.  The situation is extremely tenuous and like a lion backed into a corner Assad is unpredictable at best.
Lebanon: SInce the 2006 war with Israel in which the Israeli army destroyed much of Hezbollah’s forward positions, the terrorist organization has re-grouped.  Some INTEL puts the number at missiles that are aimed at Israel at over 100,000.  Many of these have been retrofitted with better war heads and some analysts posit that chemical war heads may also be deployed.
Egypt: Egypt was one of two countries that had a peace treaty with Israel, with the election of the Moslem Brotherhood, I would venture to say the treaty is meaningless. Over the weekend while most Americans were anticipating the Big Game, the pipeline from Egypt to Israel was once again blown up.  You may also recall the banner that was unfurled at a recent soccer game that stated: One Nation under a new Holocaust.  I would suggest that these people mean business and the focus is on the destruction of the Jews and Israel.
Jordan: Jordan is the second country to have a peace agreement with Israel.  For the time being Jordan has escaped much of the so-called Arab Spring.  However, I posted an article that indicated US troops were stationed on Jordan’s border with Syria.
Libya:  The Arab Spring brought down dictator Moamer Ghadaffi, which leaves a power vacuum that I believe will be filled by The Moslem Brotherhood.  Count this as yet another Islamic state that will implement Sharia law.  Like its neighbor Egypt the focus will be on the destruction of Israel, rather than implementing changes that would benefit the people.
Iraq: Sectarian violence continues unabated in this country with no end in sight.  Week after week bombs go off killing and maiming hundreds of people.  Iraq is no closer to democracy now than it was before we invaded it under the pretext of weapons of mass destruction.  So much for the Bush doctrine….
Iran: This country poses a real threat to Israel existentially.   The ongoing vitriol and unmitigated hatred of the Jews and Israel has reached a fever pitch.  The Iranian/Shia eschatological view that believes that the Madhi – or Islamic savior – can only come in a time of chaos, is fueling the constant saber rattling.   Khanemei has stated – see above – that the killing of all of the Jews is the end game.  Hitler said the same in Mein Kampf and was largely ignored by the west until it was too late.
Russia:  The bear has stated that an attack against Tehran, Iran is an attack against Moscow.  I believe that this is the hook in the jaw that the prophet Ezekiel wrote about 2600 years ago.
In closing todays Post:  The situation in the Middle East is at a breaking point.  Look for an incident that will plunge the region into WWIII.  This war will not be like WWII, in that I believe it will be of short duration.  However, nukes may be used and we will see the nations above go up against a land of un-walled villages, i.e Israel.  Is the Ezekiel prophecy about to be fulfilled?  While the Super Bowl is entertaining and I enjoy the special snacks, there is a dark shadow that hangs like a specter, just out of sight.  It is the specter of war and it is coming…
