Evening Update: Israeli-Iranian War Now Out Of Shadows

This title comes from the Jerusalem Post in "Breaking News":

If there was any doubt, the capture of two Iranian nationals in Bangkok on Tuesday – just hours after the home they were renting exploded in a work accident – shows that the Israeli-Iranian war has now moved out of the shadows.

Iran is out to strike at Israel and appears to be panicking as it tries. The three recent plots, including the relativelysuccessful bombing in New Delhi on Monday, are a demonstration of a determined Iranian effort to attack Israel at almost all costs.

What Iran is likely trying to do is hit Israel hard enough to inflict pain, but not so hard as to give Israel justification to retaliate, possibly even militarily.

In the meantime – and as long as the attacks are notsuccessful – Israel is going to try and use the spate of attacks to its benefit, and specifically garner international support against Iran’s nuclear program.

Israeli intelligence agencies are now working to try and connect the dots among the three recent terror plots – in New Delhi, Tbilisi and Bangkok – in an effort to be able to portray Iran as what Israel claims it is: the greatest state sponsor of terrorism in the world.

Israel is also using the attacks to explain to the world the danger of a nuclear Iran. If Iran is carrying out these attacks today, just wait until the ayatollahs have a nuclear bomb, some officials are saying.

But this all depends on the Iranians. If the attacks continue and one of them succeeds, Israel will need to consider how to respond.

For the time being, Israel is focused on the diplomatic track, but one bomb could change everything.

Israeli officials told ABC News that the level of personal security on high-ranking Embassy officials as well as other, lower profile officials in the U.S. is at its highest in at least five years, a response to what they called "a coordinated series of attacks." When Israeli officials travel to and from events, ABC News has observed a notable increase in the security presence.

I've been noticing a lot of articles on CNN about Syria, and all of the terrible things going on there. I can't help but get the feeling that the US is trying to get the mass population aware of the situation so the population would support a military intervention.

I think something in syria will happen first, and then it will get carried into a conflict with Iran.

Daniel 10:20 the one speaking is to come soon and fight war with the prince of persia.
the first to fight the prine of persia is the prince of greece.
the rise again of persia means that soon return of the one speaking in dan 10:20 is near.
and since persia is one in the gog war, the timing could probably after gog war.

Welcome, mato! Nice to see a new face...so to speak... ;)

I'm not sure if I understand your post above, but I just want to point out that the "princes" of Greece and Persia in Dan. 10 are angels (however, not good ones) over principalities with whom the angel speaking (a good one) had to fight for 21 days (Dan 10:13) before he arrived to speak to Daniel. It even says in verse 13 that one of the chief princes, Michael, had to help this good angel fight the prince of Persia. This is Michael the archangel and they were warring in the heavenly realm.

I have always understood that Michael is the protector of the nation of Israel. Also, that there are both good and bad angels over various principalities throughout our world - especially the middle east.

Yes Michael is the chief prince of Israel as implied in verse 21.
Gog on the other hand is the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal eze 38.
what i mean is, if the one speaking in dan 10:20 is not the prince of greece, then his return is near (to fight the prince of persia), since persia is rising up along with the others.

as the fourth beast has a part of the first. (he was and is not and yet is)

Thanks for the clarification, mato!

Scott, what has happened with the sign in words ("prove you're not a robot")??? There are always 2 words now and they are sometimes very difficult to read! It often takes me 2 or 3 attempts just to post. Weirdness!

I don't know Alice - I don't get involved in those details, I just have to do this because of a LOT of spam that it blocks. Why "they" added this is a mystery to me...
