24 November 2013: As noted, the feckless EU/E3+3 (P5+1) talks with Iran have failed upon reaching the irrelevant deadline. Another resumption of meaningless negotiations has been scheduled for December 2014 with July 2015 set as the next tentative date for failure. In Israel PM Bibi Netanyahu is being hung out to dry as the Israeli prime minister who slept while Iran armed itself with nuclear weapons. Indeed, YNet News has published an OpEd datelined 25 November which reiterates the point made in this report's initial bottom line truth-of-the-matter form yesterday: "The Americans and the world powers no longer take Netanyahu (read: Israel) into account."
Also, as noted in the linked YNet report above, the proverbial "window of opportunity" to strike the Iranian nuclear program is now closed. As I noted to a Bible prophecy author very recently, "Iran's nuclear weapons and the requisite infrastructure for their production are now safely tucked away under millions of tons of mountainous solid rock. Iranians are not stupid, they are adept tacticians and chess masters. Whatever is left of their original nuclear program sites above ground are red herrings, a set of decoys." Now we wait to see how the Lord will bring Jeremiah 49:34-39 into fulfillment.
23 November 2014: On Friday, November 14, an open-air sermon was delivered by Ayatollah Ali Movahedi Kermani in Tehran, Islamic Republic of Iran. Ayatollah Movahedi Kermani is Ayatollah Khamenei's personal representative to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, the gatekeepers to Iran's nuclear weapons and missile delivery systems.In the sermon there was one particular portion that went virtually unreported in the West. This was the portion in which Ayatollah Movahedi Kermani stated that a single Iranian Sejjil-2/3 ballistic missile could hit and raze to the ground Tel Aviv, Haifa and/or all American bases in the region. This threat is viewed as a possible outcome of the potential total failure of the ongoing P5+1 negotiations with Iran.
The Order Of Battle (OOB) for these Iranian launch-on-command nuclear-armed missiles therefore includes Tel Aviv, Haifa and all US bases in the region within approximately 1,250 miles of the Sejjil's launch point.
With just hours remaining for a final agreement to be agreed upon between the P5+1 (EU/E3+3) negotiations and the Islamic Republic of Iran there are strong indications that Israel will stand firm in its refusal to abide by any agreement which contains a "sunset clause" which will allow Iran to complete its indigenous nuclear weapons program. Israel may yet preemptively strike Iran as it has previously struck the Iraqi and Syrian nuclear weapons programs.
That this scenario is a potential occurrence at the same time as the IDF's Chief-of-Staff General Benny Gantz is within 100 days of a sunset to his military career; combined with unrestrained Islamic-inspired violence threatening the peace of Jerusalem, the Temple Mount, Israel's system of mass transportation, and much of the rest of the country, is a true nightmare scenario to many observers. A replacement for Gantz is an imperative, but not more so than Iranian nukes or Islamic insurrection terrorizing the entire country.
An Iranian hand in the recent massacre of dual-national Rabbi's in praying in a Jerusalem synagogue through their PFLP-GC terrorist proxy headquartered in Damascus is well-known, as is the unrelenting Iranian attempts to smuggle weapons to jihadists in Judea, Samaria, the Sinai and Gaza. The repeated attempts of the IRGC to deploy the high-precision Fatah-110 ballistic missile and its 1,100lb warhead (capable of striking Israel's Dimona nuclear complex from southern Lebanon or Syria**) is just that much more gasoline on the fire within Israel's national security apparatus to deal directly with the Iranian Shi'a hojjatieh mullahs. The imperative is to do so before the Sunni jihadists of the Islamic State and their expanding Wilayat (provinces) are able to cross directly onto Israel from all directions. (**Imagine a Fateh-110 fired by Hezbollah from inside Syria and that missile making a successful strike on Dimona. The future existence of Damascus might then be measured in tens of minutes.)
The onus is on Israel to act because the Western negotiations with Iran, even at the most basic level, do not factor in the least of Israel's national security requirements. Jeremiah 49:34-39 may be closer than anyone realizes.
