Israel Stands Alone - U.S. To Israel: We Don't Have Your Back

Exactly as we would predict based on our knowledge of biblical prophecy. At least we have some honesty now and at least Israel knows where they stand (as if they didn't already know). Either way, Israel stands alone in this world:

The U.S. military's top officer made statements Thursday which appear towarn Israel that it should not expect U.S. assistance if it chooses to attack Iran's nuclear weapons program.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, said such an attack would "clearly delay but probably not destroy Iran's nuclear program," The Guardian reported Thursday. He added: "I don't want to be complicit if they [Israel] choose to do it."

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters the U.S. is "closely studying" the UN International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) quarterly report on Iran, "but broadly speaking it is not surprising that Iran is continuing to violate its obligations."

"As the report illustrates," he added, "we are in a position to closely observe Iran's program."

Carney said the US has told Iran that "The window of opportunity to resolve this remains open ... but it will not remain open indefinitely."

Iran has increased its uranium enrichment capacity by at least 30% in the last four months, according to the IAEA report. It has doubled production capacity at the Fordo nuclear site, the report says

Surely Israel realizes the obvious: "studying" the IAEA report will not save Israel from Iran's nukes, nor will rhetoric. And thus far, all Israel has received from the U.S. is just that - "studying reports" and rhetoric - neither of which stops missiles or bullets.

The U.S. would rather wash their hands from any potential conflict:

The US does not want to be “complicit” in an Israeli strike that “probably” would not only fail to destroy Iran’s nuclear program, but could also undo international diplomatic pressure on Tehran, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staffs General Martin Dempsey said Thursday in London.

An attack by Israel would “clearly delay but probably not destroy Iran’s nuclear program,” Dempsey said, adding: ”I don’t want to be complicit if they [Israel] choose to do it.”

The US’s top general – the Guardian reported – said that he could not presume to know Iran’s ultimate intentions in pursuing a nuclear program, as intelligence was inconclusive on that score. It was clear, however, he maintained, that mounting pressure from the American-led “international coalition…could be undone if [Iran] was attacked prematurely.”

The general doesn't know Iran's "ultimate intentions" in pursuing a nuclear program? Huh?

Has he somehow missed the numerous press releases quoting Iran's leadership constant calls to destroy Israel? Does he read the papers? Is he tuned in to international politics? Does he even bother to read the news? It doesn't take much work to discover Iran's stated intentions.

Last week, Dempsey said that Israel and the US did not see eye to eye on the Iranian nuclear threat, admitting that Washington and Jerusalem were on “different clocks” regarding Tehran’s nuclear ambitions.

The US has been working to keep Israel from launching a unilateral strike, maintianing that sanctions should be given more time to work.

Last week, the former American ambassador to Israel, Martin Indyk,termed Israel’s talk of attacking Iran “a classic case of crying wolf.”

The conference of the Non -Aligned Movement (NAM) in Teheran was intended by the regime to be a propaganda event on the scale of the 1936 Berlin Olympics, marketing Iran as a regional and international leader thanks to its three-year presidency of NAM.

However, the summit is not turning out to be a success. First of all, the Iranian regime failed to learn from Nazi Germany. In 1936, in the run-up and during the Olympics, the Nazi regime toned down the public displays of anti-Semitism and even allowed Jewish athletes to try out for the German Olympic team.

This duped foreign visitors, who concluded that previous reports on persecution of Jews were an exaggeration. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in contrast, opened the event with an address attacking the Israeli regime of "Zionist wolves" and branding the United States a hegemonic meddler.

Khamenei even accused the UN Security Council of being a puppet of US influence. He thus made things extremely difficult for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, already under attack for his decision to attend the conclave.

Such remarks forced Ban's hand and he upbraided his hosts for Holocaust denial and threatening the destruction of the State of Israel. This, of course, does not exonerate the UN Secretary-General for his decision to attend the summit in the first place; it merely points out the clumsiness of the Iranians.

As upsetting as this is - we have to remember that the world events we are witnessing daily - are all part of an unfolding scenario that must take place. We are on the verge of witnessing the final events which lead directly into the Tribulation. Momentum is gaining rapidly and the world is shaping up exactly as we would predict.

Bet you won't hear this on the Nightly News tonight!

I have NEVER seen this kind of statement come from anyone but the President or his Secretary of State. To attempt to hide behind the stars on. General's uniform rather than man up to such a statement speaks as much about the man in the White House as it does to his broken promise to our once most valued Allie.

God said "I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you". I pray we don't find out just what those words mean!
