Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Tuesday accused Iran and Hezbollah of carrying out Monday's terror attacks in India and Georgia saying they were "intent on sabotaging the Israeli way of life and operating against Israelis all over the world."Within hours of Monday’s attacks in Tbilisi and New Delhi, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahuplaced the blame squarely on Tehran, saying Israel would continue to “systematically and with patience use a strong arm” against international terrorism originating from Iran.
Israel has dispatched a number of naval vessels – under cover – into the Arabian Sea, and they are moving into its northern regions, just off of IranThe Israeli vessels have been positioned at the mouth of the Gulf of Oman, which leads to the Strait of Hormuz. Iran has threatened to shut down that gateway to the Persian Gulf if further sanctions are imposed against its sale of oil and on its central bank.
Placement of the covert naval vessels in the northern Arabian Sea allows Israel to use them as a standoff C4ISR, or Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance platform.
This would give the Israelis the capability of not only intelligence-gathering on Iranian communications of its missile and air defense activities but also to coordinate attacks employing jet fighters, missiles and missile-carrying submarines in the event Israeli forces get the order to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities.
The atmosphere is already dangerously charged over the crisis in Syria, reciprocal US and Iranian threats over the Strait of Hormuz, and US and Israeli preparations to strike Iran’s nuclear sites.
But wars may be ignited without notice by a small spark or a terrorist attack far from Middle East shores that would cause enough Israeli fatalities to satisfy its instigators in Tehran and Beirut and provoke an Israeli military response. This was dangerously close to happening in New Delhi Monday.
Mossad head Tamir Pardo's visit to Washington around two weeks ago was meant to evaluate how the United States would react if Israel decided to attack Iran's nuclear facilities on its own, Newsweek magazine reports this week.
According to the report, Pardo posed a number of questions during his talks with senior administration officials, including: What military preparations are being made with regard to Iran? Is America willing to attack Iran? What would be the significance of Israel doing so on its own?According to the report, Obama's refusal to offer these assurances was what led Israel to formulate its current position - refusing to promise restraint in anything regarding Iran or to necessarily inform the United States of a pending attack in advance.
Russia will place several new S-400 Triumf air defense systems near its borders in 2012, Air Force Commander Alexander Zelin said.
“The Russian Armed Forces will receive several S-400 air defense systems this year,” Zelin told RIA Novosti on Monday. “This time they will be deployed in air defense units guarding [Russia’s] border regions.”
The world is justifiably concerned about a nuclear capable Iran, but the Islamic Republic’s prime ally, the Russian Federation, is putting into active service a weapon with more destructive capability than Tehran could ever dream of possessing. While Iran’s main target is America’s ally, Israel, Moscow still aims its atomic weaponry primarily at the United States.As budget cuts place ever greater limitations on American deterrence, Moscow - and its allies—are forging ahead in their construction of an ever greater military capability.Russia’s newest nuclear ballistic submarine, the Yury Dolgoruky, is symbolic of the continuing progress which Moscow and its allies are making in their determination to end America’s role as the last powerful defender of human freedom in the world. The Yury Dolgoruky will enter full service in the Russian fleet in the second quarter of 2012.
By Friday, February 10th, an estimated 500 Europeans had died from the freezing weather gripping the continent. This is the price they and British citizens are paying for embracing the global warming hoax, spending billions for wind power when they should have been building coal-fired and other sources of energy to heat their homes and businesses.
I and others have been warning for years that the Earth has been cooling since 1998 and that the planet is on the cusp of a new ice age because the average length of an interglacial period of warmth between such ages is now coming to an end after the passage of some 11,500 years.All aspects of global warming legislation and spending programs must be utterly reversed if we are not going to see huge losses of life and the disruption of entire economies.Friday reporting that “Thick ice closed vast swaths of the Danube on Thursday, crippling shipping on Europe’s busiest waterway, as the death toll from bitter cold across the continent rose…as it has every day for nearly two weeks.” The report noted that “Navigation was impossible or restricted in Serbia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary and Austria, as ice covered the river or formed dangerous floes in shipping lanes.”No shipping means no delivery of coal and oil and no shipping of food and other necessities. Europe is freezing over as the United States has been experiencing an unusually mild winter thus far. That, too, is likely to yield to the increased cooling of the planet and then, maybe, Americans will realize the threat to their lives that the closing of coal-fired plants, instigated by the Environmental Protection Agency, really means.In England, the Mail, reported on Sunday, February 12th, that large numbers of its elderly citizens are being “frozen to death as fuel bills soar: hypothermia cases among the elderly double in five years.” England, now gripped by foolish green notions of renewable energy, has covered itself with wind turbines, despoiling its countryside and coasts while proving unreliable and incapable of meeting its energy needs.
Figures showed that “1,876 patients were treated in hospital for hypothermia in 2010-2011, up from 950 in 2006-2007” reported the Mail. “Three-quarters of victims were pensioners, with cases soaring among the over-60s more than any other age group.”“The lack of readiness should come as no surprise because for decades the sensationalist message of global warming has dominated the public area,” said Ms. Adali.
The current freeze is not just affecting Europe, but reaching across the Mediterranean to North African nations. And at some point America will feel it too.
We have not built a single new nuclear plant in America since 1978. EPA rules are forcing the closure of coal-fired plants throughout the nation. The national grid for the distribution of electricity is in need of upgrades.
America and the rest of the world have been horribly deceived by the United Nations Intergovernmental Climate Change Panel that continues to drive the global warming hoax. The lying scientists who got on the global warming gravy train, the politicians that embraced it, and the media that misled millions are all culpable, all responsible.
People are freezing to death in their homes and in the streets. What will it take to drive a stake into the heart of the global warming monster?
“The cold snap in Europe, which began in late January, has killed hundreds and brought deep snow where it hasn’t been seen in decades,” says this article in theSeattle Times.
How about a headline that tells it like it is?
Look at these headlines. Are these the result of a “cold snap”?
- Serbia cuts power in desperate bid to prevent collapse of national grid The country’s entire electric distribution system could collapse…
- Hundreds of barns collapse in Italy At least one million farm animals in danger of running out of food.
- Villages buried under 4-5 meters of snow—Video “23.000 people are isolated, how many people and animals have died we don’t know since nobody can reach there.”
- Italian villages trapped in more than 9 feet of snow With the death toll already at 43, another blast of freezing weather…
- Danube freezes over—One of the greatest rivers in Europe Danube wholly or partially blocked in six countries.
- Most winter grain destroyed in southern and eastern Ukraine With temperatures 12 to 17C below average, the situation in Ukraine has became serious.
- European death toll rises to 480—and counting 150 cattle killed when roofs collapse. “It seems more like a war in Europe.”
- Code red for agriculture in Tuscany “Blizzard comes and farmers tremble”—Loss rates up to 50%.
- Turkey quake survivors fighting the snow Walking 300 feet through the snow to reach the nearest toilets.
No, this is no mere cold snap. There’s a tragedy unfolding in Europe, and the world needs to know.
While the headlines focus on upheaval in the Middle East, financial crisis in Europe, and election year politics in the U.S., the UN has been planning its grand summit-level Rio+20 Conference, scheduled for June 20-22 in Brazil. This will mark the 20th anniversary of the Rio Earth Summit, which helped spade the ground for climate hysteria, the Kyoto treaty, and the quack vilification of the world’s most productive economies. This round, the UN plans to make even more “sustainable” the things the UN-ocracy would like to see sustained — paramount among them, the UN itself.Now, Fox News Executive Editor George Russell reports that Ban Ki-Moon, Sha Zukang and another two dozen or more of the UN’s top Rio+20 planners held a closed-door retreat last October, at a Long Island mansion, where they discussed how Rio+20 could help them reshape the world.The proceedings were meant to be secret (apparently, UN top managers prefer that the world not know the details until their world reshaping is already well underway). But Russell got hold of the confidential minutes of the discussions, which are linked in his story, “UN chief, aides, plot ‘green economy’ agenda at upcoming summit.”“bold ambitions that stretch for years beyond the Rio conclave to consolidate a radical new global green economy, promote a spectrum of sweeping new social policies and build an even more important role for UN institutions ‘to manage the process of globalization better.’”
In his latest show Gov. Mike Huckabee was seen interviewing a Catholic priest, as they spoke, the Governor said that since the Catholics have come under attack “we are all Catholics.” The audience accepted what he said and while they knew the Governor was not referring to some giant ecumenical switch to Catholicism he was stating the obvious. When the government suspends or denies first amendment principles to the church, be it Protestant or Catholic, we all tend to close ranks.The practice of abandoning God’s word is not only increased during the years just before Christ’s return, but entire religions will be popularized, promulgated and fully accepted without the slightest connection to God or his word. It is a period that lasts for only a few years, but leads the world into that dreaded last period of time the Bible often refers to as The Great Tribulation.Hearing that President Obama is requiring that Catholics pay insurancepremiums that will cover abortifacients is just a primer for what is to come. It is almost too early to predict what else Mr. Obama may decide to enact as part of Obamacare or some new executive order, but we can rest assured that both he and other world leaders will be flying against the revealed word much more in the days ahead.
The error begins when even those who claim to be Christians (Including the president) begin to view the Bible on a selective basis, choosing or rejecting the part of scripture they like or want to use and discarding the rest. They think as some say that the Bible may only be inspired in spots and they will need to be inspired enough to spot the spots. When God’s word is subject to the feelings and impressions of the hearers to give it veracity; then it has been made purely subjective and is worth nothing. God’s word is true and viable whether we get it or not.A government that ignores its own Constitutional principles and its very foundation, will find it easy to disregard the laws of God and in so doing will have reduced its citizens to a piece of bread when it asks them to abandon their faith for a law or mandate that goes against God, his word or his church. The choice to stand as men is now ours alone to make.
Scott, were you up all night gathering this??? Thank for the extensive post! God bless you for all you do!
Amen Alice..I agree. God Bless you Scott.
Interesting articles on the folks freezing in Europe. We are closing two coal fired power plants in my area this spring. The EPA is trying to kill WV business. I have contracts at both power plants. I guess I better get out of the office and start knocking on some doors. My preference would be to skip that and go straight to heaven via the rapture! :)
Has anyone experianced an Al Gore sighting lately? Speaking of the cold spell in Europe, last week they were skating on the canals of Amsterdam, which hardly ever freeze up. On to another topic, last week, Obama quoted the scripture text about to whom much is given, much will be required to justify increasing taxes on the rich. He cracks me up everytime he talks about matters of faith. While he may not misquote scripture, he sure misinterprets it; and uses it to his own political advantage. WV, at the rate of speed in which things are going today, you just may get your wish.
Yes Dutch, no doubt about it. "Occupying" is getting harder and harder to do all the time. I think one of my "obsessions" with watching is to gleen any little tid-bit that indicates we are near the tribulation or Biblical battles from Isaiah and Ezekiel. Obviously the closer we are to that 7 year period the closer we are to catching our ride "home". :)
I wonder how long the shofar will sound? I wonder what I will appreciate the most about my glorified body? I wonder what it will be like to "fly"? I wonder what it will be like to see Jesus face to face? I wonder what it will be like to see and chat with Moses, Noah, John, David, Peter, Daniel, Joseph, Paul and Martha? Wow!
This is our destiny and it could be as soon as today or tomorrow. What a priveledge! Thank-you Jesus!
WV, I've wondered about these same things myself, what it will be like; and I have a feeling once the shofar sounds we can throw those feelings and imaginations right out the window because it will be indescribible and beyond anything we could ever comprehend. I know one thing: I'll look forward to washing that gray right out of my hair, and seeing all of you. Thank you Jesus for making it all possible; and thank you Scott for keeping us abreast of all the signs.
And despite all of this, bulls do not DIE ?? We are UP again, only
4 pts but still up.
However, cracks are STARTING TO
appear in the bull's armor.
(1) Gold and Silver Mining companies are falling apart.
starting a bigger 3 down.
(2) Financial stocks are starting
to sell off with BAC leading the way.
(3) Speculation is RAMPANT on the
Nasdaq, reminds me of FEB 2000,
12 years ago.....AAPL UP yet
again, above 500 on the close.
(4) EURO starting to sell off
DESPITE the so called bull news out
We MAY be topping here, I am just not sure. Time will tell.
Like I have said before, I NEED to

Here is a good article about the debt (WHAT IT REALLY IS !!)
An old article, but TIMELY
notheless from AUG 2011.
which means IT IS worse now.
Scott your prophecy update site is excellent. I don't know how you find time to do it. This is the first time I think you missed or overlooked something. This contraception thing is being pushed on all religious organizations equally. The Catholics are the only ones the media gives a voice to.
I don't see this applying to Catholics one bit more than to all religious institutions.b
