Foreign Press renting rooftops in advance of expected Israel-Iran war

This was in Hebrew and google-translated to English

The foreign media is preparing an Israeli confrontation with Iran
--Various agencies, including Reuters, the roofs of houses in Tel Aviv hired to prepare an attack on the town photography
--In addition, television networks in Israel sent senior producers

"Although non-ongoing uncertainty in Israel around the nuclear confrontation with Iran, Globes "has learned that the foreign media feel that the great event - meaning going to happen. Learned that recently hired various agencies, including Agence Reuters, roofs of houses in Tel - Aviv, to prepare for the shooting attack on the city. Also, the world's television networks, more and less significant, senior producers sent to Israel to examine means of Helena, communications infrastructure, and protective measures in favor of big teams will come to Israel to cover the events. Between the agencies considering the deployment of these networks is currently FOX , NBC and CBS networks of American and European and Asian. One senior source said foreign broadcasters Globes: "It would be illogical not to prepare for it, when we hear your defense minister expressed constantly on. This assessment is similar to that which was here before the days of the Gulf War, the early '90s."

This article was in English originally, it is an opinion piece of irony and sarcasm from Eurasia Review:

Foreign Press Rents Tel Aviv Rooftops To Cover Iran War – OpEd
"You remember the descriptions of the First Battle of Bull Run when all of Washington’s high society rode out in their fine carriages and horses to picnic under the shady trees and watch their Union boys send the Rebs packing? Did they get the shock of their lives when the Rebel musket balls whizzed over their heads and the Union soldiers ran for their lives from the field? Or similarly, the Israelis in southern Israel who took lawn chairs out to watch the IDF smash Gaza to smithereens in 2009? Here’s a picture of another group of expectant, thrilled Israelis watching the action. That’s what the foreign press corps appears to be doing now in Tel Aviv in preparation for an attack on Iran. They’re renting the right to put film crews and reporters on the city’s rooftops (Hebrew) during the upcoming war in order to cover the anticipated Iranian counterattack. That way they can get great photo ops and pictures of missiles wreaking havoc on the city. What a story! What a feast for the eyes! Other news organizations like CBS, Fox News, and NBC are sending their senior producers to Israel to scope out the place in case they have to send in the big boys–the news anchors and senior correspondents (especially since no one can report from Tehran!)."

On one webpage discussing this story/rumor of the day, Daniel F stated, "In January 1991 everybody was caught by surprise at 03:00am in the morning when the first Scuds hit Tel Aviv. CNN, the most aggressive news agency at the time, had paid handsomely for access to a rooftop and provided excellent live coverage (and were also inadvertently acting as a forward artillery spotter for the Iraqis). Other news agencies were quick to follow suit until some understood that the Iraqis might be watching TV. So I suppose that some of the news agencies are “buying options”, hardly surprising and I suppose that the asking prices are still reasonable. More dancing in the streets of Gaza?"

We know from prophecy in Ezekiel 38-39 that Israel and Iran get into it, as well as Israel and the Psalm 83 nations (Lebanon, Gaza, Hezbollah, Hamas, Jordan, Egypt) and we know Syria's capital of Damascus is obliterated at some point in between all this (Isaiah 17). The only question is, when. I don't think we have long to wait to find out.

  1. Alot of people are turning into conspiracy theorists over the way the talk of war has been escalating especially in the US media. They will be foaming at the mouth when they hear of this...

    Anyway, it seems that there won't be much of a gap between what people call the psalm 83 battle and gog-magog. What do you think?

    Goodness, these days it's almost like we are in the midst of a left behind book or movie. We will be face to face with God Himself very soon.

  2. They better stay in their own countries because they will be missing all of the fire that will be falling on all the distant coastlands that think they are living in security.
