Will Israel attack? It’s up to President Obama

Flag of the International Atomic Energy Agency

Jonathan Tobin writes in Commentary that the chances of an attack against Iran by Israel are decreasing and that Israel has asked for – but not yet received from the U.S. – a set of “red lines” that will trigger the U.S. to implement the military option that President Obama has always insisted remains on the table. Tobin writes:

The latest report from the International Atomic Energy Agency is eroding any lingering doubts about Iran’s intentions or the progress it has made toward realizing its dangerous ambition. But with the number of centrifuges being doubled and now stored in a possibly invulnerable underground facility, the Israelis are rightly worried that time is running out fast before it will be too late to stop Iran.

    Unless obama is voted out of office, sadly Israel is on it’s own and as was proven in the democratic platform vote…this is the party that is emboldened to vote down God and Israel.

    my thoughts ? PRAY AND BELIEVE AND THEN STEP TO ONE SIDE AND LET GOD BE GOD… OBAMA IS NOT BIGGER THAN THE GOD WHO CREATED HIM. HE WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO VOTE OR LEGISLATE HIM OUT OF THE HEARTS OF THOSE OF US THAT BELIEVE IN GOD. THERE ARE SO MANY OF US. GIVE, GIVE, GIVE TO ISRAEL AND PRAY, PRAY, PRAY FOR THEM UNTILL GOD MAKES HIS MOVE….GOD BLESS ISRAEL…. MANY OF US IN THE USA ARE STANDING WITH YOU.

      What concerns me is that God allowed Babylon to take Israel captive for they had turned their back on God. I think this is also the case for the U.S. I know that there are many Christians in the U.S., but since 1960′s many have turned to the Muslim faith. It is as Obama said, “We are no longer a Christian nation”.We are headed toward the end times just as it is written.

Whole lot of mean people there. There are some beautiful people there though. People that love God and their fellow neighbors. Won’t be long before Jesus returns, how I long for that day !!!!

    I hope that Israel will stop waiting for the U.S. to do anything for her. It’s not going to happen, no matter who is president of the U.S, who in power is an antisemite, not an antisemite, etc.
    “A king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. The war horse [otherwise known as modern weapons]is a vain hope for victory, and by its great might it cannot save. Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, that he may deliver their soul from death, and keep them alive in famine.”

    What would happen if God made Himself real to Obama? One miracle already happened, President Obama recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The president’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes.

    The Bible promises that once the Jewish people return to Zion the land will never be destroyed again. Our God and theirs will defend Isreal against attack and it will be super natural. We must rest in that. We have been given the story ending. It is glorious,with Jesus in the center.

    What Israel may do is wait until Iran declares it has the atom bomb. Then the whole game becomes a nuclear war in which Iran cannot win if the element of surprise is used by Israel cunningly.

    You Know what??? Barack Obama, will let time run out for Israel to hit Iran. I do not know, in my wildest dreams, what fantasyland that reporters get the silly notion that Barack Obama, is going to do anything or make a decision about giving his backing to Israel or anybody else, in regard to an attack on Iran, or anybody else, for that matter. He says, as he did in his speech Thursday night at the DNC, that our backing is solidly behind Israel and must stay that way, but, how many times has he come to your aid in anything? How many times has he tried to make it hard on Mr. Netanyahu, and put pressure on Israel, when they have had a perfect right to do what they wanted to do. He is not about to do anything to involve himself in anything that he considers to be a problem to what he hopes will be his reelection. I am afraid that Israel is eventually going to have to bite the bullet and do what they have to do in their own good time, because President Obama, considers your country a loose cannon and he will not touch anything that he considers to be a political problem for him, even while trying to tell the world what a great ally you are and how much he supports you. I realize that this does not make any sense to any normal thinking person, but sadly, that is the way things are at the moment.

    Well look at it this way if Iran get’s the bomb and uses it and Israel respond’s with an all out exchange then the rest of the world will wake up to the fact that the muslim’s don’t want any kind of peace, of course Iran will be a city of glass and Israel will most likely be too. Maybe the world need’s to see that so it won’t happen in the future

    Israel should make their own decisions about how to defend themselves. President Obama does not even have the right, according to the U.S. Constitution, to be President of the United States. Do not rely on him for anything. The God of Israel has spoken, and will accomplish His
    purposes. Seek His guidance, and you will do the right thing.

    God’s word is the final authority. God’s word tells and teaches us of the past we were not alive to experience and of the future. Was His word wrong about the past? It seems that archeology and true science continue to prove His historical accounts given to us as true! So, does He speak of Israel being destroyed in this way at this time? Are there not still prophecies needing fulfillment? A nuclear attack is severely destructive. I am sorry that there is so much anxiety in Israel and amongst her leaders at this time. It is a frightful situation. It reminds me of David before Goliath. These nations seem like GIANT GOLIATH and the Philistines to me. I get so weary of reading and hearing about all of the hatred in the nations surrounding Israel and I can only imagine that if I were in Israel’s shoes right now I might be shaking too. However, if God is truly God, and His covenant is now with the whole earth, including Israel, through His Son Jesus, then there is still a God abiding with Israel. In 1 Sam. 17:45-47, David declares boldly, “You come to me with sword and spear and javelin; but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This very day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down and cut off your head; and I will give the dead bodies of the Philistine army this very day to the birds of the air and to the wild animals of the earth, so that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel, and that all this assembly may know that the Lord does not save by sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s and He will give you into our hand.” This reminds me of what is written in Ezekiel’s prophey often talked about these days in 38 and 39. The Lord states, “I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; I will turn you around and put hooks into your jaws, and I will lead you out…..In the latter days I will bring you against my land, so that the nations may know me, when through you, O Gog, I display my holiness before their eyes.” Anyway, the whole thing is just too long to fully quote here, but praise our God, so many of us have bibles to read it in. That is a mighty miracle in and of itself! So, the battle is the Lord’s! As for me, I am praying and trusting in the Lord to act. If Israel can take down the walls of Jericho by marching around the city and blowing trumpets, then my song of pure praise, a new song unto the Lord is enough. I did just that and continue to do just that. Like Miriam after the Lord drown the mighty armies of Egypt in the Red Sea. Like Mary when she sang forth declaring about Jesus in her womb and the mightiness of His reign. The Lord will triumph and keep Israel and win the hearts of her people unto Himself once again. “O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie. Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by. Yet, in thy dark street shineth, the everlasting light. The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.” We can sing old songs too. I don’t know how, but God will triumph just as He promised. Israel, trust in and put your hope in the Lord! Seek His face and His counsel; He will guide you and defend you.

      Absolutely correct, Mary. Israel should not trust anyone outside of Israel’s government, especially Obama and his cronies. He is trying to downsize the U. S. If a so-called leader will do that to his own country, what will he do to its allies? He is a Muslim sympathizer at the least if not a full-fledged Muslim.
