Iranian Bases in Syria Take Another Hit from Israeli Warplanes

Reports are surfacing that the Israeli Air Force took aim…and hit…yet another Iranian/Hezbollah military base south of Homs, Syria.  It is believed that at least two dozen terrorists were killed and Iranian ground-to-air missiles were destroyed.

This follows at least two other unconfirmed airstrikes in the Deir ez-Zor region which destroyed two Syrian military posts near an energy installation.  The Syrian army and Hezbollah reported the strikes being part of a US coalition, though the Pentagon has denied reports of an American strike.

Israel has strongly vowed not to allow Iran to establish a military presence in Syria, from which to attack Israel.  Over the past couple weeks Israel has taken out multiple military sites and rendered many of Iran’s bases inoperable.

Friends, I truly believe the Lord is honoring the prayers of those who seek Him, and is granting favor to Israel and a last chance for America to right the immoral ship we are on.  Ultimately, Ezekiel 38-39 tells us what will happen in that part of the world, but until then, let’s be about our Father’s business!

Pray on!

Secretary Pompeo’s Iran speech: Tehran hated it. But most Arab & Israeli leaders loved it. So did I. Here’s why.

Wow….and Amen!

Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

Pompeo-HeritageIranSpeech(Washington, D.C.) — Iranian leaders hated it. Most European leaders hated it. So did most former advisors to President Obama and Vice President Biden, and most of Washington’s so-called “experts.” But this is hardly news.

What’s fascinating is that most Arab leaders loved it.

I’ve spoken with two very high-ranking Arab officials in recent days about the speech delivered by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at The Heritage Foundation on Monday morning. Both made it clear to me how deeply grateful and appreciative their countries are to the Trump-Pence administration for finally taking a bold, decisive, uncompromising position against Iranian aggression. 

One Arab official told me privately: “It’s like the world is sane again.”

After watching Iran be feted and praised and rewarded and appeased by President Obama and his team over the past eight years, most Sunni Arab leaders are rejoicing that the U.S. is finally treating Iran as…

Hamas’ Determination to Demonize Israel

Last week, as many of us celebrated the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, Hamas was busy with an agenda of their own.  It isn’t a new agenda, but one they have implemented and advanced for decades now.  In fact, their charter of 1988 makes their purpose clear:

The Islamic Resistance Movement, also known as the HAMAS, is an extremist fundamentalist Islamic organization operating in the territories under Israeli control. Its Covenant is a comprehensive manifesto comprised of 36 separate articles, all of which promote the basic HAMAS goal of destroying the State of Israel through Jihad (Islamic Holy War).
~The Covenant of Hamas

Hamas recruited Palestinian citizens (mostly jihadist rebels) to riot at Israel’s borders, leading up to Nakba Day, the day Palestinians remember the “catastrophe” of Israel’s rebirth.  Thus, we have witnessed significant violence as Hamas ordered Palestinian people to storm the border.

The predominately liberal media has sympathized with Hamas, but is seemingly (though gradually) beginning to see a little more clearly.  Even the ultra-liberal Washing Post ran an editorial by Israeli Ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer, last week.  In it, Dermer exposes the lies perpetrated by Hamas.

The article is informative, and also includes a 3-minute interview with Dermer.  You will find the article and video here:

Stop Demonizing Israel for Defending Itself

In addition, Hamas leader, Yahya Sinwar just admitted that Hamas is coordinating with Hezbollah and Iran!  Indeed, it is Iran working the puppet strings of both Hamas and Hezbollah, and Iran who is likely directing the riots at the border between Gaza and Israel.  Click here to watch Sinwar’s admission.

Continue praying for truth to be made known, and the lies of Hamas revealed.  It is important, during this time of increased respect for Israel, to grow roots of strength in standing for Israel.  Ultimately, the day will come when doing so will be more difficult.  May your roots grow deep in knowledge and resolve!

Israel is First to Use New F-35 Fighter Jets in Combat

Israel purchased F-35 fighter jets from the United States and accepted delivery of the first jets in December 2016.  Earlier today, during the IAF’s International Conference, Israel Air Force Commander Maj.-Gen. Amikam Norkin announced that Israel has become the first to use F-35’s in actual combat.

“We are flying the F-35 all over the Middle East. It has become part of our operational capabilities. We are the first to attack using the F-35 in the Middle East and have already attacked twice on different fronts.”

“Beyond the satisfaction from the Adir’s performance and abilities, the psychological aspect carried a lot of weight too.”
~Maj-Gen Amikam Norkin
“With C4I technology integrated into the Adir, the F-35 is particularly critical to countering Hezbollah’s vast rocket threat through rapid identification and prioritization of targets for the IAF.”  [The jets] “can fly in what we call ‘beast mode,’ carrying up to 18,000 pounds of internal and external ordnance, in a mix that can include 5,000-pound-class weapons.”
~Lockheed Martin chairman, president and CEO Marillyn A. Hewson
