Tachles With Aviel – “War Is Nearer Than Peace”

Everything on the geopolitical map is pointing towards a looming full-scale war between Israel and Iran.

All signs, whether in the public media, from secret sources, from security experts, or feelings in people’s hearts, point more to war than peace.

According to the intelligence service of the Israeli armed forces (known as “Aman”), the security crisis will continue even after the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Aman suggests the government wait and plan a more calculated response to recent terror and cross-border attacks. Tensions on the Temple Mount must first calm down.

Israel’s deterrence strategy has been damaged not only because of Israel’s own policies, but also because of America’s detachment from the Middle East. Chinese and Russian influence in the Middle East is becoming ever more powerful. However, what all enemies of Israel are talking about is the “internal political war in the nation of Israel,” which urgently needs to be exploited for an attack on the Jewish state. “Israelis are divided into Oriental and religious Jews versus Western Jews, European Jewry. The Jews hate each other more than the hatred between us,” Hamas deputy leader Saleh al-Arouri stressed at a gathering of top terror chiefs in Beirut. “This is the last warning before the collapse.”

On Friday, Muslims are called upon to come en masse to morning prayers on the Temple Mount. “The Great Dawn” campaign is running on all social networks.

In recent days, military intelligence has warned the government that there will be no rest after Ramadan. According to intelligence officials, Israel is on the verge of a possible war. To calm tensions in the Middle East, they suggest the government wait for any extraordinary response against Hamas, Hezbollah and the Shiite militias in Syria. Israel must first contain the explosive religious escalation that has erupted around the Temple Mount during Ramadan. For this reason, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has strictly forbidden Jews from entering the Temple Mount. The clashes at the Al-Aqsa Mosque have angered the Arab world, and the Palestinians and Iran are taking advantage of this to launch a new front against Israel. Of course, this is fueled by ceaseless propaganda on social media.

Furthermore, Israel’s enemies watched the United States withdraw from the Middle East as the agreed-upon modern fighter jets were taken out of the region and replaced with less advanced aircraft, such as in Saudi Arabia. All of this, and the growing influence of China and Russia in the Middle East, has weighed heavily on Israel’s deterrent power. In addition, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Intelligence Service estimates that Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei decided a year ago to retaliate against Israel’s attacks on the ayatollah regime in Tehran. From an Israeli perspective, the Iranian regime is demanding a response to Israel’s assassinations and attacks on key Iranian figures. Iran is trying to carry out the attacks within Israel’s borders by establishing a new multi-front threat to the Jewish state.

More than that, China and Russia are also engaged in advanced secret talks to sell Iran ammonium perchlorate (molecular formula NH4ClO4) – a key chemical compound essential to powering ballistic missiles. So said senior diplomats familiar with the matter. This is a flagrant violation of United Nations sanctions and would potentially help Moscow replenish its depleted stockpile of missiles in the war against Ukraine. With Russian and Chinese backing, Iran has become a global manufacturer of kamikaze drones and missiles over the past year. These missiles will one day be aimed at Israel, and that is why Israel is bombing the build-up of Iranian bases, defense systems and weapons caches in Syria.

During the past Passover week, the level of attacks on Israel carried out under Iranian auspices has escalated. Rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip, a day later rockets from southern Lebanon on the Galilee. Then Iran surprised Israel with three rocket attacks from Syria into the Golan Heights. At the same time there were two terrorist attacks over the weekend, one in the Jordan Valley where a mother and her two daughters were murdered, and one in Tel Aviv where an Italian tourist was killed.

Iran is uniting all Arab and Islamic countries in a poster in honor of Iran’s “Jerusalem Day” next Friday, under the title: “The West Bank is the protector of Jerusalem.” Iran is urging the Palestinian Authority-controlled “West Bank” to take the reins of the insurgency against Israel. The West Bank is seen as an important key in his strategy against Israel. This is also reflected in the allocation of Iranian resources. After reconciliation with Saudi Arabia, Iran joins all Arab and Islamic countries as one bloc to jointly destroy Israel: “Al-Aqsa & Jerusalem.” The flags depicted on the poster are not only those of the Shia-Iranian axis countries, but also include the Sunni countries. Iran is taking advantage of developments in world politics to unite Sunnis and Shias against Israel.

    Shalom Avi,

    Exactly right, several or one and the same concerning the first three, Miz’mor 83,(which has never happened) Yesha’ayhu 17 which will eliminate Damascus, and then there is Yirm’yahu 49:34-39, and then the Yehez’qel 38-39 war, Israel will come through each war in Victory by the hand of HaShem!!!

    Daniel 10:13 and 12:1 and Revelation 12:7 reveal to us that the chief Angel Michael and his angels once fought with Persia (Iran) at the time of Daniel, that they will rise up to protect the remnant of the Jewish people, and that they are to fight against the dragon. So, despite of all the threats and alarm bells ringing in Israel, we must never forget about the Lord’s Sovereign authority above all wars on earth. Most importantly, for the remnant of the Jewish people, the Lord God is now fully on their side and the wars against the Jewish people are those of the Lord Himself (and His angels) again. Shalom!

    When Abraham died, “..his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah..” Gen. 25:9

    In God’s love for our world He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, “..the Son of David, the Son of Abraham”. (Matt. 1:1)

    I have personally experienced God’s cleansing of my sin and His powerful presence in my life through coming to our High Priest, Christ Jesus, who, “with His own blood entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.” Heb. 9:11-12

    While our enemy, Satan, increases his spiritual battle, God’s aim is His love for our world! God works in ways that are far above our ways, but I know beyond a shadow of doubt that when we obey God, coming to the door of the tabernacle, to our High Priest, Christ Jesus, for His forgiveness of our sins, God intervenes mightily on our behalf.
