Iranian Parliament website outlines reasons to attack Israel

Israel National News reports: "The Iranian parliament's official website has published an article calling on the government to attack Israel before the end of the year. According to Israeli TV Channel 2's veteran Middle East expert, Ehud Yaari, the article cites three reasons for the call. First – a religious fatwa allowing such a strike. Second – threats from Israel regarding a planned strike on Iran. And third – Iran's alleged military capability to carry out such an attack. The article specifies that the area between Lod and Jerusalem should be targeted, as well as Tel Nof Air Force Base..."

"...On Saturday, press outlets in Iran also widely quoted a blog post by Alireza Forghani, a computer engineer, who called upon Tehran to "wipe out Israel" by 2014. Forghani called on his leaders to target Israeli sites using land-to-land missiles. Ballistic Sijil missiles should be launched at Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa, he suggested, as well as power stations and other vital infrastructure. Then, Shahab 3 and Ghader missiles should target the rest of Israel's population centers. Nine minutes would suffice for 'total annihilation,' he predicted."

Nine minutes... that's some rhetoric. I'll give more rhetoric: the bible says that Israel's enemies will say that they should be wiped out. God said they would say that. "For behold, Your enemies make an uproar, And those who hate You have exalted themselves. They make shrewd plans against Your people, And conspire together against Your treasured ones." (Psalm 83:2-3)

"They have said, "Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more." (Psalm 83:4 NAS)

It's all coming together...

  6. I have an incredible sense of urgency and "inner-knowing" that our time here on earth will be drawing to a close very soon

  7. Powerful! My friend and fellow believer actually sent a mass text quoting Luke 21:36 this evening and she's not the type that follows bible prophecy at all. I definitely agree that the end of this age is near.
