Woe to the state of Israel

From 'Israel Today'(and yes, that is my comment at the bottom of the article)...

Bush gives Israel tentative 'OK' to strike Iran
US President George W. Bush has given Israel the go-ahead to draw up a full plan of attack to take out Iran's main nuclear facilities and to present it to him for final approval, according to a senior Pentagon official who spokes to London's Sunday Times.
The official said the president had given Israel an "amber light," explaining that "amber means get on with your preparations, stand by for immediate attack and tell us when you're ready."
Israeli officials who had previously admitted to preparing for a possible strike on Iran's nuclear facilities said that such an attack would be impossible without a green light from Washington, as Israeli planes would need to travel through US-controlled Iraqi airspace. Israel would also need America's assistance in dealing with the diplomatic aftermath.
The Pentagon source said that the Bush Administration had already determined not to attack Iran, but noted that "the president is really preoccupied with the nuclear threat against Israel and I know he doesn't believe that anything but force will deter Iran."
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is scheduled to travel to the US on Monday where he will meet with various Pentagon officials to discuss how best to handle the Iran threat.
An aide to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned on Saturday that if an attack is launched on his country's nuclear facilities, Iran will "destroy" Israel and 32 American military bases across the Middle East.
"If Israel and the US fire a bullet or a missile at Iran, its forces will attack the heart of Israel and 32 American bases in the region before the dust from such an attack has settled," Mojtaba Zolnour, Khameini's deputy representative in the Revolutionary Guards, told Iran's Fars news agency.
Iran last week held what it called a major test of its improved medium-range missile arsenal, indicating that it possessed the means to launch a substantial counter-strike against Israel.
However, Israeli and Western analysts who examined the missile test photographs so proudly distributed by Iran noted that they had been doctored. The Israelis further noted that the missiles in the photos appeared to be Iran's older Shihab-3 missiles, which are not capable of hitting Israel. The affair called into question Iran's ability to actually retaliate against Israel in the event of an aerial assault on its nuclear facilities.

I would encourage you to look to the book of Amos. Yes, it calls for the destruction of Damascus, as well as Gaza, Ashkelon, and, most likely, Tel Aviv. BUT continue reading and you will see THE DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM....

Amo 2:4 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have despised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked:
Amo 2:5 But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.
Amo 2:6 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes;
Amo 2:7 That pant after the dust of the earth on the head of the poor, and turn aside the way of the meek: and a man and his father will go in unto the same maid, to profane my holy name:
Amo 2:8 And they lay themselves down upon clothes laid to pledge by every altar, and they drink the wine of the condemned in the house of their god.

This destruction is repeated in Amos 8 and 9. Notice it calls for an END OF MY PEOPLE.
It was these verses that Abba gave me while I was in the land a few weeks ago. I was told in the spirit to STEP OUT OF THE WAY, as HIS JUDGEMENT IS ABOUT TO COME. He must clean His house FIRST, to make way for the RIGHTEOUS BRANCH.
A WORD TO THE SAINTS: If you are honoring the sabbath, if you have the LOVE OF YAH in your hearts and the LOVE OF YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF, and you feel Abba has been preparing you to move, the time is COMING CLOSE. It is my belief the righteous branch will become established in 2009!
