Israel Strikes Back

After claiming that the initial rocket fired into Israel was launched by mistake, Egyptian and Palestinian sources now report that Iran ordered the rocket attack in order to embarrass Benjamin Netanyahu prior to the April 9 elections in Israel. It was clear to them that Netanyahu’s trip to the US would likely ignite his political base. Thus, they ordered the rocket launches during the Prime Minister’s trip to the US.

Under pressure of US sanctions, Iran is becoming desperate and even more obsessed with destroying Israel. They have dished off the dirty work to proxies such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria, and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. As the ruling party in the Gaza Strip, Israel holds Hamas responsible for all attacks emanating from there. Thus, when Israel struck back, one of the targets was the office of the highest ranking Hamas leader in the Gaza Strip, Ismail Haniyeh. Here is what’s left of his office building:

One day, Iranian forces will join Russian forces (and others) in attacking Israel from the north. (Ezekiel 38-39) When that occurs, the Lord Himself will come to Israel’s defense with power much greater than that exhibited by the Israel Air Force in this airstrike!

Indeed, Israel is a powerful nation militarily, but they don’t hold a candle to the power and might of the God of Israel! Little do Israel’s enemies know what they are getting themselves into!
