Those who follow/study Middle East events ( and geo-politics in general ), as closely as this blogger does, are hardly surprised by the report offered below.
And, it is important to recognize who is stating ‘such and such’. To be sure, none but a handful know the exact score. But, it is also the case, those who have close access to PM Netanyahu – as does Mike Evans – are in a better position to ‘speculate’ aloud – http://www.mystic-art.com/sandypr/evans.htm
Therefore, it is up to the readers to decide if this blog’s commentary – Exhibit A, since it was printed previously, plus Mike Evan’s analysis, Exhibit B, posted today – ring true.
‘The Mother of All Strikes A Very Real Possibility To Be Unleashed Against Iran’ is worth re-reading –
‘Israel Readies Secret Weapon For Iran Attack’ is presented below –
“Israel sees Iranian nuclear weapons as an existential threat, and plans are in place to carry out strikes to cripple the nuclear program by the middle of next month. Middle East expert Mike Evans says his discussions with top Israeli officials this week suggest there is a strong likelihood the attacks will take place between Sept. 15 and Oct. 15.”
“Evans estimates a 75 percent chance that strikes will be carried out in that 30-day window. Evans says high-ranking Israeli leaders also tell him they have a secret weapon they intend to deploy for any strikes, but they would not tell Evans what that weapon is. He believes the likely weapon is an electromagnetic pulse (EMP), which would cripple Iran’s power grid.”
“Israel is trying to get a hard promise from the U.S. that they’ll support an attack,” Evans told WND.
“Evans says he’s not surprised that the Obama administration is telling Israel and Iran that the U.S. will not back any Israeli attacks. He also reports that CIA Director David Petraeus and other American officials are strongly pressuring Israeli leaders to hold off on attacks before the U.S. elections. Evans explains what sort of ironclad promises from President Obama could convince Israel to stand down temporarily.”
“WND Senior Staff Reporter Jerome Corsi reported in 2009 on a “secret weapon” being developed and tested by Israel.”
“The test was done at an undisclosed Israeli military base, but few details were uncovered at the time. It was confirmed that the military specifically designed the weapon to be used in a possible conflict with Iran.”
Rational thinkers intuit – it is only a matter of differences in timing – that a pre-emptive strike will occur.
Therefore, the only thing left for others to do – outside of Israel – is to pray on her behalf, as well as lend moral support from wherever they reside.
It is what it is….and proper blame ( why it came to this devastating point ) will be apportioned at a more appropriate juncture in time.
UPDATE – from Mike Evans…….
|I cannot tell you the name of the Israeli leader, but I can tell you what he said…|
|Shalom from Jerusalem.|
|“I had a breakfast meeting with a very powerful leader in Israel. I cannot say his name, but he and I have been friends for thirty years. He told me, “Iran will cross the red line in a matter of weeks. They now have thousands of centrifuges spinning in a virtually impenetrable facility near Qom. The more time elapses, the more it becomes a zero-sum game. As we prepare for the High Holy Days, we are distributing gas masks to the population and preparing bomb shelters.”“Your president is spending all his time and force attacking us. He is saying he does not trust us, and he has downgraded our joint military exercise called Challenger 12. And while Iran threatens to exterminate us daily, your top military officer says the US does not want to be ‘complicit’ in an attack on Iran. The mullahs are dancing in the streets of Tehran.”“We may have to stand against the entire world. If we don’t, our children will experience Armageddon…and yours will, too, in another decade. What will the world do when there are dozens of atomic reactors in the 200-mile gulf region and more than 1.7 billion Shi’ite and Sunni Muslims trying to usher in the Islamic messiah?”
“It is more important than ever that we stand with Israel as the looming threat of war grows closer by the day. I am here in the Jewish state as your ambassador, meeting with leaders and working to do everything we can to encourage and uplift and help a nation on the brink of war. They urgently need us right now—and we cannot afford to ignore the pleas for help of God’s Chosen People.”
