Report: Azerbaijan Assisting Israel With Iran Strike?

This is a very interesting article from Arutz Sheva:

 Azerbaijan has looked into the possibility of assisting Israel with a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, a report Sunday by Reuters reveals.

The report, published by correspondent Thomas Grove, is based on "local officials with extensive knowledge of Azerbaijan’s militarypolicy." According to these sources, Azeri authorities have, along with Israel, looked into how Azeri air force bases and the drones at its disposal could help the IAF to carry out attacks in Iran.

“That is a far cry from the massive firepower and diplomatic cover that Netanyahu wants from Washington. But, by addressing key weaknesses in any Israeli war plan -- notably on refueling, reconnaissance and rescuing crews -- such an alliance might tilt Israeli thinking on the feasibility of acting without U.S. help,” says the report.

At the same time, two Azeri former military officers with links to serving personnel and two Russian intelligence sources told Reuters that Azerbaijan and Israel have been looking at how Azeri bases and intelligence could serve in a possible strike on Iran.
"Where planes would fly from --- from here, from there, to where? - that's what's being planned now," a security consultant with contacts at Azeri defense headquarters in Baku said. "The Israelis ... would like to gain access to bases in Azerbaijan."
Rasim Musabayov, an Azeri lawmaker and a member of parliament's foreign affairs committee, told Reuters that he understood that Azerbaijan would probably feature in any Israeli plans against Iran, at least as a contingency for refueling its attack force.

Foreign Policy magazine reported in March that Israel has purchased an Azeri airfieldon Iran's northern border, prompting the United States to watch very closely, believing Israel may use the site as a springboard for an attack on Iran's nuclear plants, or as a landing and refueling spot following one. 

Also tonight - it looks like riots are spreading through Europe as the economy continues to decline:

Well, now that everyone knows about this, it would seem to me that all the Russians or Iran would need to do now is bomb the Azeri air base Israel has purchased in order to stop Israel from benifiting from it and slowing them down too. Funny how quickly assests are blown open in the media now days.

O Heavenly Father,
We lift up Your daughter, Ally, in prayer to You.
Let Your mighty healing Hands touch her body and heal her completely. Let those around her know that You are God and are mighty to save! Jesus, breathe Your Holy Spirit into Ally and give her Your peace. Thank you, Father, for this sweet sister who encourages and shines the hope that You give! Bless her Lord! We pray this in the Name of Jesus! Amen

Ally, it times of distress I lean on 2 Corinthians 1:8-11 - it helps me so much.
For we don’t want you to be unaware, brothers, of our affliction that took place in Asia: we were completely overwhelmed — beyond our strength — so that we even despaired of life. 9 Indeed, we personally had a death sentence within ourselves, so that we would not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead. 10 He has delivered us from such a terrible death, and He will deliver us. We have put our hope in Him that He will deliver us again 11 while you join in helping us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gift that came to us through the prayers of many.

Maranatha! Come soon, Lord!

I am still bleeding but it has really slowed down now and I feel amazingly well and at peace considering how significant the pain was yesterday.
