NEWS FROM ISRAEL AND THE MIDDLE EAST
Report: Israel preparing for nuclear Iran within a year
Haaretz reports: “Israel is preparing for an Iran with nuclear capabilities within the next 12 months, according to a report by the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS), an Israeli think tank.
The U.K. daily Times newspaper published extracts of the report by the Tel Aviv University institute according to an AFP report.
The INSS was asked to prepare possible scenarios in case Iran carries out nuclear weapons tests by security, intelligence and diplomatic officials, AFP reported the Times as saying.
According to INSS predictions, Iranian nuclear weapons tests would change the balance of power in the Middle East region.
If Tehran carries out nuclear weapons tests, the U.S. will offer Israel a defense pact, but would urge Israel not to respond with an attack on Iran, according to AFP.
Russia would be expected to sign a deal with the U.S. in order to prevent armament in the region, and Saudi Arabia would be likely to develop its own nuclear capabilities, according to the report ” (World leaders are concerned. If Iran gets their nuclear bombs created, all hell will break loose globally Revelation 8:7. Read Revelation 9:14 18 at this point. The world is in its greatest danger ever II Timothy 3:1; Luke 21:25.)
Ahmadinejad: Israel’s attempts to ‘Judaize’ Jerusalem will bring about its end
Haaretz reports: “Israeli attempts to Judaize Jerusalem will bring about its end, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, saying Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land was the most important topic in the world.
Speaking to a delegation to the Turkish-Palestinian Parliamentary Friendship Group, Ahmadinejad was quoted by Iranian state television that the Zionists, who have no faith in religion or even God, now claim piety and intend to take away the Islamic identity of the Holy Quds.
This ridiculous move is in fact the continuation of the colonialist polices of oppressors, which will not save the Zionist regime, but also take the regime closer to the endpoint of its existence, the Iranian president added.
Speaking of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Ahmadinejad was quoted by Iran’s official news agency Iran as saying that the issue of Palestine is the main issue in the region and the whole world and nobody can ignore it. ” (The above headline is baloney created by Ahmadinejad, the butcher of Iran. 120 times Yahweh God promises the eternal existence of Israel, as well as our Lord Jesus Christ ruling the world from Jerusalem during the reign of His eternal kingdom Luke 1:32, 33.)
Russian naval force arrives at Syria port in ‘show of solidarity’
Haaretz reports: “A large Russian naval force arrived at the Syrian port city of Tartus, the French AFP news agency reported on Sunday [January 8, 2012], in what the regime of President Bashar Assad is calling a show of friendship.
Last November, a Syrian news agency reported that Russian warships were planned to arrive at Syrian territorial waters, indicating that the move represented a clear message to the West that Moscow would resist any foreign intervention in the country’s civil unrest.
Citing the official Syrian news agency SANA, AFP reported that a large Russian naval flotilla, led by an aircraft carrier, is making a six-day port call to Tartus. SANA also quoted a Russian naval officer as saying that the visit was aimed at bringing the two countries closer together and strengthening their ties of friendship.
The commanders of the Russian naval vessels docked in Tartus took turns to express their solidarity with the Syrian people, SANA added ” (Syria unites with Russia in earths final war Ezekiel 38, 39 and Isaiah 17:1. The solidarity is just beginning. Rick Warrens praise of Assad of Syria has been a great disappointment because Assad has already slain 5,000 of his Muslim brothers. Here is what God says about Assads murderous reign: “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.” I John 3:15. See the next report.)
Syria’s Bashar al-Assad blames ‘foreign conspiracy’
BBC News reports: “Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has blamed a foreign conspiracy for trying to destabilise Syria, as a mass uprising against his rule continues.
The external conspiracy is clear to everybody, he said in his first public remarks in months.
His violent crackdown on dissent has drawn international condemnation.
He said elections could be held later this year but terrorism, which he blames for the unrest, would be met with an iron fist.
Regional and international sides have tried to destabilise the country, President Assad said in a speech broadcast live nationally from Damascus University.
It was his third televised address since protests against his rule began in March, and lasted nearly two hours.
Our priority now is to regain [the] security [in] which we basked in for decades, and this can only be achieved by hitting the terrorists with an iron fist, he said.
We will not be lenient with those who work with outsiders against the country. ”
