I started writing an article about the threats now facing us here in Israel on our northern border with Hezbollah and Syria, when DEBKAfile sent me this very informative article. It covers most of what I had to say and with more details.
I should mention before going on that our southern border is also becoming a serious threat not only with Hamas in Gaza who claim to be more prepared for war than ever before, but ISIS in the Sinai has united with Hamas for an invasion of Israel.
Most Israelis, as most Americans are, just not aware of the sudden destruction that is about descend on them.
In the natural there is no comfort to be found within this information. The only possible way to accept what is happening, and about to happen, is to have total faith in God and His Word. His Holy Word assures us that Israel will not be destroyed, that God will bring the Jews back to this land. We saw the greatest miracle or our lifetime in 1948 when Israel became a nation for the Jewish people after 2500 years of exile. However, the rest of the story is yet to be seen – for He will bring the Jews back a second and final time as declared thus in Isa. 11:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

Hizballah lists targeted Israeli “nuclear sites”
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report March 3, 2017, 6:05 PM (IDT)
Hizballah’s latest round of threats against Israel reached a new peak Thursday, March 2, with the release of a videotape claiming to expose nine locations allegedly tied to the production and assembly of Israel’s nuclear weapons, debkafile reports. The Lebanese Shiite terror organization said it possessed precise missiles for wiping out Israel’s nuclear infrastructure and attached addresses to all its targets.
Five locations topped the list, starting with the nuclear reactors at Dimona in southern Israel and Nahal Soreq on the Mediterranean coast. “Revealed” next are three secret locations for the production, assembly and storage of nuclear missiles and warheads. Kfar Zacharia near Beit Shemesh in the Jerusalem Hills, defined as the main depot for the Jericho Series I, II and III, of three-stage ballistic missiles, which can reach ranges of up to 6,000km.
Two others were a factory in Beer Yaakov near the central Israeli town of Ramleh, the alleged production site for nuclear warheads; and the “Galilee Wing-20” plant at the Tefen Industrial Park, 17km from the town of Carmiel, a facility where the Rafael Advanced Defense System Authority was said to mount nuclear warheads on ballistic missiles and prepare them for launching.
The video stresses that Hizballah now possesses precise missiles able to pinpoint and destroy every single facility.
Just two weeks ago, Nasrallah “advised” Israel in an aggressive speech, to dismantle its large ammonia tank in Haifa and the nuclear reactor in Dimona before they were hit by Hizballah rockets and caused massive casualties. He and his associates have repeatedly warned in recent weeks that their Lebanese terrorist group has acquired weapons capable of deterring Israel as well as the capability to catch Israeli intelligence unawares by “surprises.” In previous articles, debkafile accounted for the heightened bellicosity of Hizballah’s leaders by the permission Bashar Assad recently granted Hizballah to launch missiles against Israel from Syrian soil as well as from Lebanon.
Our military and counterterrorism sources draw a straight line from Hizballah’s latest stance and the newfound aggressiveness displayed this week by the Palestinian extremist Hamas which rules the Gaza Strip.
Thursday, March 2, Hamas spokesmen stated that the group would no longer exercise restraint in responding to the heavy Israeli air and artillery strikes that are conducted in retaliation for rocket fire from the Gaza Strip. Henceforth, it would conduct a policy of “military position for military position” – meaning that for every Hamas position destroyed by Israel, the Palestinian extremists would swipe at a comparable Israeli military site.
The new Hamas posture challenged Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman”s strategy of holding the Hamas government of Gaza responsible for any attacks coming from the Palestinian enclave – whether the work of Hamas or the extremist Salafis running loose there.
On Feb. 27, the Israeli Air Force smashed five Hamas targets in the northern, central and southern regions of the enclave after a rocket from Gaza exploded in Israel. The IDF did not respond to the rocket fired subsequently at the Hof Ashkelon region. But then, after a round of fire from Gaza to shoot up IDF military engineering equipment, the IDF knocked over two small Hamas look-out positions in the north.
Hamas had in fact given the defense minister an ultimatum: either exercise restraint, or continue the policy of massive retaliations for every rocket coming from the Gaza Strip – at the risk of a fresh round of fighting with Hamas. Lieberman appears to have settled for the first option for the time being.
We awoke this morning with a large bang over the Jordan Valley as the Israel Air Force bombed more weapons shipments in Syria headed for our border. They also intercepted anti-aircraft missiles over the Jordan Valley that could be heard even in Jerusalem.
The one thing that comes to my mind is this; is this why God has directed us to move one of our boats out of Israel and nearer the rescue locations of Europe? For one thing is certain – when this war is over Israel will be here and God will be the victor, and the only place a Jew can live safely will be in the land God set aside for him.
We have been given a short period of time to be prepared with the necessary provisions and logistics many things must be in place. It is not something we can do when the wars begin. We must be ready. My dream for a larger boat to carry many more and travel greater distances at higher speeds is still what this ministry really needs.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this ministry and your part in it.
Shalom, Jerry Golden
