Will Israel Attack Iran?
What Would be the Result?
Will Israel attack Iran? It is certainly looking more like a possibility as there are increased fears that Iran will soon have nuclear weapons capability. Of course, Israel - that small land rich in biblical history - feels most at threat. They may be reasoning that a pre-emptive strike is the best option to protect their national security.
With the "Arab Spring" we witnessed early in 2011, and recent developments there seems to be a greater move to consolidating the power of Islam. While alliances in that part of the world can shift like the desert sands, Israel and its allies are surely concerned.
Will Israel attack Iran? My belief is that this war is certain to come and when it does it will be a fulfillment of
Daniel Chapter 8.
Among all the signs we might be watching for of Christ's soon return, this will be a very definite sign. Others such as the increase of earthquake frequency are trends we can see increasing but this will be a singular event spoken of directly. And all of our lives will be greatly affected by it in a variety of ways.
Here are some recent stories in the news on this topic and a few others signs of the times as well.

A Military War of Nerves Against Iran: The US Leads, Israel and UK Go Along
DEBKAfile / November 2, 2011
The British media reported that
the Ministry of Defense in London
had accelerated and upgraded its
contingency planning for partic-
ipation, in a US-led assault on Iran.
"The sudden rush of military news Wednesday, Nov. 2, is part of an orchestrated Western performance to convince Tehran that the US, Britain and Israel are on the verge of a military operation against its nuclear installations.
"Directed from Washington, it is meant to warn Iran that the play could become a reality show if it refuses to give up the drive for a nuclear weapon. President Barack Obama may then decide to strike Revolutionary Guards Corps targets, the bulwark of the Islamic regime, and its strategic infrastructure, thereby knocking over the key props holding up the regime of the ayatollahs."

For Israel, the Language of War has Reached a Critical State. Target: TEL AVIV!
By: Gary Stearrmen / Prophecy in The News.com / November 2011 Magazine
"War talk is more than an idle threat. It is the spillover of language that has taken place behind the scenes after diplomacy has failed.
"Historically, the reality of an impending war can be measured by the language used by opponents as the horrific day of actual battle approaches.
"Currently, Syria's despotic President, Bashar Assad, has adopted a siege mentality and threatens to hurl rockets in every direction. But he has specifically named Tel Aviv as his prime target.
"Today, the Middle East has left the field of peace talk. War talk has broken forth!
"An ongoing high-level threat against Israel is now a dark reality. War could come in moments. The following report gives the reasoning behind the threat.
"In an October 4th news release, DEBKAfile reports that, 'For the past three months, Syrian President Bashar Assad has staved off a military attack by Turkey or NATO for halting the exceptional brutality of his crackdown on protest by explicitly holding Greater Tel Aviv's 1.2 million inhabitants under threat of missile retaliation. Iran and Hizballah are exercising the same deterrent.
"'According to Western intelligence sources, Syria, Iran and Hizballah have charted a coordinated military operation for flattening metropolitan Tel Aviv. Israel's financial, industrial and cultural center, with thousands of missiles launched simultaneously by all three-plus the Palestinian Hamas and Jihad Islami [Islamic jihadists] firing from the Gaza Strip.
"'Western intelligence sources have reported that Israel reacted with a warning of its own: If a single Syrian missile explodes in Tel Aviv, Damascus will be the first to pay the price, and if the missile offensive persists, one Syrian town after another will be destroyed.
"The Israeli message to Assad cited the warnings Defense Minister Ehud Barak and government members addressed in the past year to Hizballah, that if Tel Aviv comes under attack from its missiles . . . all of Lebanon would go up in flames. Assad was given to understand that Syria would go the same way as Lebanon if it engaged in missile belligerence against Israel.'
"For decades, we and other Bible scholars have pointed to an amazing prophecy in the book of Isaiah. It prophesies the 'flattening' of Damascus. And we have often pointed out that this city has never suffered the fate described by the prophet. It has existed in its present location for about four thousand years, being continuously inhabited. But one day, it will be smashed, as in the following description:
"'The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid. The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts. And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean' (Isaiah 17:1-4).'
"Now, for the first time in history, we see warring parties following a course that could very well fulfill this prophecy. War talk has now reached the stage that historically, has led directly to battle."

Peter Schiff -- The US is in Worse Shape than Italy
King World News Blog / November 11, 2011
There's a price to pay and we're going to pay it....
"With gold, silver still consolidating recent gains, today King World News interviewed Peter Schiff, CEO of Europacific Capital.
"'There is a serious problem going on over there in Italy and pretty soon it's going to be a serious problem over here in America. What's going on is people are questioning the ability of governments to repay the money they've borrowed and there is already a lot of turmoil.'"
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21:28)
