Netanyahu ‘determined to attack Iran’ before US elections, claims Israel’s Channel 10

TV reporter adds: ‘I doubt Obama could say anything that would convince PM to delay a possible attack’

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “is determined to attack Iran before the US elections,” Israel’s Channel 10 News claimed on Monday night, and Israel is now “closer than ever” to a strike designed to thwart Iran’s nuclear drive.

The TV station’s military reporter Alon Ben-David, who earlier this year wasgiven extensive access to the Israel Air Force as it trained for a possible attack, reported that, since upgraded sanctions against Iran have failed to force a suspension of the Iranian nuclear program in the past two months, “from the prime minister’s point of view, the time for action is getting ever closer.”

Asked by the news anchor in the Hebrew-language TV report how close Israel now was to “a decision and perhaps an attack,” Ben-David said: “It appears that we are closer than ever.”

He said it seemed that Netanyahu was not waiting for a much-discussed possible meeting with US President Barack Obama, after the UN General Assembly gathering in New York late next month — indeed, “it’s not clear that there’ll be a meeting.” In any case, said Ben-David, “I doubt Obama could say anything that would convince Netanyahu to delay a possible attack.”

The report added that Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak believe Obama would have no choice but to give backing for an Israeli attack before the US presidential elections in November.

There is considerable opposition to an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, the report noted — with President Shimon Peres, the army’s chief of the General Staff and top generals, the intelligence community, opposition leader Shaul Mofaz, “and of course the Americans” all lined up against Israeli action at this stage.

But, noted Ben-David, it is the Israeli government that would have to take the decision, and there Netanyahu is “almost guaranteed” a majority.

Other Hebrew media reports on Tuesday also said Netanyahu had despatched a senior official, National Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror, to update the elderly spiritual leader of the Shas ultra-Orthodox coalition party, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, on the status of the Iranian nuclear program, in order to try to win over Shas government ministers’ support for an attack.


The first war of the biblical end times scenario is about to unfold. The Joseph Plan believes that it is the war described in Psalm 83. Only time and a revelation from God will verify if this is the prophesied war in Psalm 83.

Regardless of which prophesied war is about to begin, it will be war. A war where many thousands of people will be killed(possibly hundreds of thousands) and many more lives disabled and turned upside down.

The people of Israel are in a struggle for their existence and lives. There enemies have sworn to kill each and every one of them. Iran has stated, absolutely, that it is developing nuclear weapons that IT WILL USE against Israel. Israel has no other choice but to fight for its survival.

In the above article it is stated that Israel is not going to bow down to Americas request to postpone this preemptive attack on Iran for Obama’s political purposes. That means that the war will be started before November.

I don’t think the leaders of Israel will want to be at war during Yom Kippur. Sept 26th. My guess is that it will begin right after Yom Kippur with a goal of having it all end within a few weeks. Which would be just before or during the US election.

However it comes down we know it is about to all start. This war will end with a seven year peace treaty and all of us with eyes to see will know that the time of tribulation has started.

The Joseph Plan will absolutely continue. We will keep doing what the Lord asked us to do. We will be referring to this first part of the Tribulation period as the Time of the Wrath of Man. The time when the power of the sin of man, represented by a New World Order of governance, rises up to conquer, control and try to enslave the populations of the entire world.  One third of the worlds population will be killed or die of disease or starvation over the next few years.  My prayer is that through a Faith that Endures we will be here to be a blessing for all those in need. But that is up to Jesus.

There isn’t very much time left until the world we are accustomed to changes. And change it going to. Do you have a stock pile of supplies to carry you, your family and loved ones for a month or two. I advise 90 days if you have the means. With our meager income we are trying. One of the disadvantages of being disabled. Our Lord is good. He will provide.

I would like to call everyone’s attention to a post from almost a year ago. It is entitled “The Jesus Problem”. I originally wrote that posting for a different ministry about nine years ago. It’s been viewed by hundreds of thousands of people since. But its message still rings so very true today. There is only one Jesus. There is only one Jesus Christ of the bible. All religions and all teachers that proclaim any other will be dealt with by God. Believing in the right Jesus is going to make all the difference in the world as we enter this new age. Having and living with An Enduring Faith, regardless of your denomination, is what will carry you to the end of your days. Regardless of when we are raptured. Live for today with A Faith that Endures. Plan for tomorrow with the Lord’s promises. Call on God to do for you what you cannot do for yourself. Believe in God’s promises for His children. This is going to be a time of great miracles along with the troubles. Jacob’s Troubles!


Let’s all walk each day under the covering and protection of the of Jesus and the Holy Spirit, with an Enduring Faith.

1John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and you have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
Psalm 91:22 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”Through Him, We will overcome”.

Through An Enduring Faith and in the hands and through the mouth of a true believer mountains can truly be moved.

But not by our own strength.

My friend, Are you confident where you are going to spend eternity when this all ends? There is an end for all of us some day. Some of us maybe today.

There is only one way to know and be assured– Ask our Father in heaven in Jesus Christs’ name in prayer today!

Are You Saved from damnation, the eternal fate of so many? Are you sure? Ask Him. Find out and be assured.

Rom 8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that  we are the children of God.

When we ask the Lord, in Jesus Christ’s name, He assures us with His peace and understanding. If for any reason you question your salvation, go to a quiet place, alone, and talk to Jesus. Repent of your sins and commit your life to Him. Then go to a bible believing church and get baptized.

He is faithful! He always listens and always responds!
