Evening Update: Egyptian Anti-Israeli Rhetoric Increasing And Sudanese Missile Factory Destroyed By Israel

Israel Rattled By Rise In Anti-Semitic Rhetoric from Egypt

The new tone coming out of Egypt - punctuated by President Mohammed Morsi mouthing "Amen" to an Imam's call for the destruction of Israel - is rattling residents of the Jewish state, who claim the Obama administration isn't taking the ratcheted-up rhetoric seriously.

“There is no question that the rise to power of the Muslim Brotherhood has prompted open expressions of anti-Semitism in ways that were never publicly expressed during the Mubarak period," Efraim Zuroff of the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Israel office told Fox "The Obama administration is treating this far less seriously than it should be.”

The party that propelled Morsi to power, however, has made no secret of its contempt for Judaism and Christianity. When Mohammed Badie in 2010 became leader of the Muslim Brotherhood - and consequently President Morsi’s spiritual guide - he stepped up his attacks on Israel even while Hosni Mubarak still held an iron grip on power in Egypt.

Determined to recapture Jerusalem and the Al Aqsa (Golden Dome) Mosque, Badie told his followers, “Every Muslim is obliged to wage Jihad in order to restore it (Jerusalem) to Muslim rule”. Of the Jews he added, “Allah would free the world of their filth and corruption...Jerusalem will be regained only through Jihad, not through negotiations.”

In Jerusalem, the Israeli government is without doubt monitoring developments in Egypt very closely.

A U.S. monitoring group says satellite images of the aftermath of an explosion at a Sudanese weapons factory suggest that the site was hit by an airstrike.
The Sudanese government has accused Israel of bombing its Yarmouk military complex in Khartoum last week, killing two people and leaving the factory in ruins.

The images, released by the Satellite Sentinel Project to The Associated
Press on Saturday, showed several 52-foot (16-meter) wide craters. Jonathan Hutson, a spokesman for the project, which is backed by Hollywood actor George Clooney, said military experts found the craters to be "consistent with large impact craters created by air-delivered munitions."

Sudan, which analysts say is used as an arms smuggling route to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip via neighboring Egypt, has blamed Israel for such strikes in the past, but Israel has always either refused to comment or said it neither admitted nor denied involvement.

Senior analysts in the Arab world have characterized the alleged strike as a rehearsal aimed at sending Iran a clear message that Israel will not hesitate to strike distant targets.

Sudanese President Omar Bashir pledged decisive steps against “Israeli interests which are now legitimate targets.”  He spoke Saturday, Oct. 27 after a team of Iranian generals completed a secret examination of the rubble left of the Khartoum Shehab ballistic missile factory after an air attack on Oct. 24.  Israeli officials have refused to comment on the attack. However, Sudanese Information Minister Ahmed Belal Othman said “military experts" who surveyed what was left of the Yarmouk Industrial Complex had determined that it was destroyed by Israel-made missiles.
Othman did not identity the “military experts” who examined the residue at the bomb site or explain how they were able to identify the weapons used. However, DEBKAfile’s military sources disclose that those experts were Iranian military chiefs of the highest ranks:  Iranian Air Force Chief Brig. Gen. Hassan Shah-Safi; Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Forces Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh; Deputy Air Force Commander Brig. Gen. Aziz Nasirzadeh; and Commander of Iran's Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base Brig. Gen. Farzad Esmaili.
The exalted ranks of these officers, sent secretly and post haste to Khartoum after the incident, attested to the extreme consternation caused in Tehran by the missile factory’s destruction and its importance to Iran’s regional military organization for a potential US or Israeli attack.

I hope that all of this conflict will cause more Israelis and people all over to turn and be saved while they still can.

If any of you wouldn't mind please say a little prayer for me that I will get the job that I am gong to apply to or a job like it. Thank you in advance.

The U.S. and Israel are having the largest war games ever. I 'm confused...I thought we were abandoning Israel...yet we're having the biggest war games ever?

I still can't believe how many people there are that don't have a clue about the M.E. conflicts, and just how much prophecy is being fulfilled. Just this week I talked to a friend about going to visit my church. He wouldn't respond at all. How many more chances will people get?

Engaging in war games does not equate to supporting a country. Not by any means.

But supporting Israel's enemies, as we are doing (Libya, Egypt, Syria, etc.) is going directly against Israel and by doing this run dangerously close to the warning of Genesis 12:3. We are aiding Israel's strongest enemies with the Muslim Brotherhood (Egypt) and the radical Islamists involved in the Libya takeover and the attempted Syrian takeover.

As a matter of fact, when looking ahead, prophetically, at the countries who will invade Israel - the U.S. will have set the stage by this administration's policies. Think about that for a few minutes in the context of Genesis 12:3.
