OUR ISRAELI CONNECTION
News from the Jerusalem Prayer Team
The United States government has agreed to build an advanced missile defense facility for Israel-and now has released all of the details of the top-secret facility as part of the bid process for construction. Israeli military leaders were described as “fuming” over the security breach. “If an enemy of Israel wanted to launch an attack against a facility, this would give him an easy how-to guide. This type of information is closely guarded, and its release can jeopardize the entire facility,” one Israeli military official said. “This is more than worrying; it is shocking.” It is shameful that our government is so careless with Israel’s security.

In an interview with Lebanese television, embattled Syrian President Assad declared that his regime would win the bloody civil war that has dragged on for two years. He also vowed to “strike back hard” against any further Israeli attacks. Israel has taken action on three specific occasions to destroy advanced missiles being sent to Hezbollah terrorists. The Syrian army has fired on Israeli soldiers in Israel on at least one occasion, and there are growing tensions along the border.
Hussein al-Shahristani, Iraq’s deputy prime minister, told reporters yesterday that Iraq has issued a warning to Israel not to violate its airspace in a potential attack to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program. The Iraqi leader said Israel would have to “face the consequences” if it flew over Iraq to get to Iran. Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki is a Shi’ite like the leaders of Iran, and he is suspected of helping Iran avoid international sanctions designed to halt the mullahs in their attempt to get nuclear weapons.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei today ordered that the country’s next president not make any concessions to the West, warning that doing so would be “a mistake” and declaring that Iran should build up its “national might” against the West. The live televised speech exhorted the eight candidates to insulate the Iranian economy in order to leave the West “defenseless in its confrontation with the Iranian nation.”
Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is being criticized for his response to the rioting that has engulfed the country, after the Islamist official dismissed thousands of protestors as “looters,” called social media “the worst menace to society,” declared that foreign agents were behind popular calls for his government’s resignation, and implied that he had personally led an Arab Spring-style “Turkish Spring.”
