These enemies of the God of Israel (Psalm 83:2) are very fond of saying "if Allah wills" and who cry out how great he is every time they send a rocket to bring fire upon the children of Israel.
On the altar that is Gaza will these prophetic words now begin to be made manifest before our own witnessing eyes. "Then you shall know that I am the Lord."
As one of the terrorists from Gaza was reported to say when asked why they couldn’t aim their rockets more effectively: “We do aim them, but their God changes their path in mid-air.”
The War Expands
Final Update - OPE Day 17: The Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades claimed responsibility in the shooting today of an Israeli law enforcement officer in Qalandiya (north of Jerusalem). This group of terrorists is the military arm of Fatah which is led by PA president Mahmoud Abbas, and are well known jihadist allies of the PFLP-GC and PIJ. It would seem at this point that the Fatah terrorists have expanded their war effort against Israel from Gaza into the environs adjacent to Jerusalem. This attack has resulted in a continuing firefight in Qalandiya with more than 60 Palestinians wounded and three killed by Israeli return fire. Hostilities have also erupted in the area of Rachel's Tomb (Kever Rochel) south of Jerusalem. Hostilities are reportedly continuing in these areas at 0300 in the morning in Israel.
25 July 2014 - OPE Day 18/Ground War Day 8: The image above strikes me as being illustrative of how close HAMAS is to being literally pushed into the sea with their missiles. It also strikes me that there must be huge subterranean stockpiles of this weaponry which HAMAS no longer has access to because it was relatively quiet last night. These are the kind of sequential IDF battlefield victories which usually bring one of two things: either a desperate plea for an immediate ceasefire from a plethora of leftist, international pro-HAMAS third parties (which HAMAS would take advantage of or just plain ignore), or yet another plea from the current Iranian sock-puppet president for Muslim unity in a grand military confrontation against Israel.
Looks like the IDF is close to hitting the jackpot because today we've got both urgent ceasefire pleas and three days of successive Iranian government calls-to-arms against Israel. The first call was Ayatollah Khamenei's on Wednesday calling for the destruction of Israel through "mighty armed resistance", and his newest sock puppet Rouhani essentially repeating that call yesterday, followed by all the other mullahs repeating those calls in Tehran and Qom today. It may well be the Iranian calls will result in either or both Syria and Hezbollah intervening in this war on HAMAS behalf. That intervention would come with all of the Bible prophecy implications we have discussed here at length previously.
Final Update OPE Day 18: The Good News is that PM Netanyahu's security cabinet in a unanimous vote has "flatly rejected" US SECSTATE Kerry's alleged 7 to 18 day long "humanitarian cease fire plan." It was apparently a pro-Arab plan largely crafted by pro-HAMAS Qatari Arabs and therefore a total non-starter. The ceasefire plan was even a non-stater for HAMAS, which should tell everyone one thing very clearly - the peace plan was a ruse, a ploy, a political bear trap set for Israel to step into. All of this is par for the course with an incompetent such as Kerry and his friends.
Again, any Arab demand should be rejected out of hand, and only an unconditional HAMAS and terrorist surrender coupled with total disarmament is appropriate at this point. Israeli aircraft, armor, naval forces and boots on Gaza's soil rule the day, and the nigh,t and must dictate the terms of a terrorist surrender. Period.
The death toll among "Palestinians" in Judea and Samaria violent protests and attacks has risen to a total of 5 through today. Most of today's violence was the direct result of violent political Islam being preached in the "religion of peace" mosques in the Jerusalem area. The Muslim Imams are no doubt responding the HAMAS calls for a general uprising in Israel, which mirrors the calls made by Iran over the past three days as well as their Hezbollah pawns in Lebanon. The Jewish Sabbath in Israel is likely to be anything but restful.
