The IDF released this video earlier today that explains that Hamas has acquired a new rocket from Iran called the Fajr 5 that has a much higher range than previous rockets.

Watch:

Also, they’ve updated their Hamas Rocket Threat map to include it. As you can see, pretty much everything is within distance of this rocket, including Jerusalem which isn’t on this map but just sits around 15-20 miles ENE of Bet Shemesh:

    Most people have no idea how significant this is. If even one of these rockets does fall upon the city of Jerusalem and cause hundreds if not thousands of deaths, there’s no question we can expect the “domino effect”.

    • PovrlaChasse

      Close to half of Jerusalem is Arab. They are just as likely to kill their own as they are to kill Jews. (not that they care)

      The best outcome would be if they hit that big mosque defacing the temple mount.

      • sjmom

        It would be an easy task for Heaven to redirect one of these weapons to obliteratate the big dome of that mosque. From my computer to God’s ear. Amen.

        • Cindy09

          One always wonder how the 3rd temple is going to come about. This would be quite spectacular if they obliterate their own mosque and open the way for the Jewish temple.

          • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

            From what I understand, the Mosque does not sit on the temple mount. Geologists have determined that the Mosque actually sits in the courtyard in front of the temple mount. The bible actually predicts this as being the case. I can’t remember which scripture, but it has something to do with the courtyard and gentiles.

            I have heard that all of the temple treasures are ready to go, and the mount is actually clear. The anti-Christ brokers a deal to get the temple built. You don’t want to be here when the temple is finished, because the anti-Christ will claim to be God in the temple, and this will be the abomination that causes desolation. This is when everyone starts to run for the hills. Not good stuff.

            • Joe Mudd

              Bible bending of the 1st degree.
              God put an end to the old covenant sacrifices
              to rebuild that system is anti Christ as He
              became the sacrifice “once and for all”
              It’s over for that system, done, toast, kaput.
              The old testament is full of examples of God using
              the enemy’s of Israel to bring her to Him.
              If they are truly trying to revive what God has
              put asunder, what we are witnessing will go poorly
              for Israel.
              I pray they accept Jesus as the Messiah, the
              only sacrifice accepted in Heaven.

              • jdbaird

                I agree…Why would Jesus preside over animal sacrifice in the new temple as the dispensationalists say he will, when with his death he erased the sins of men who accept him? Israel can still be thrown out of the promised land since they’ve rejected Christ.

                • IsraeliCojones

                  but the fact that Israel persecutes Palestinian Christians along with Palestinian muslims pisses me off to no end.

                  That “fact” is a load of crap residing only in your head, skippy.

                • jdbaird

                  You can live in denial all you want, but when they come through and bulldoze Palestinian settlements they don’t stop and ask if the people are Christian or muslim. http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/anti-christian-persecution-israel/
                  http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/04/25/israels-persecution-of-christians-in-the-holy-land/ There are many articles about it, but you get the idea. I’m not anti-Israel, but truth is truth, Jews have rejected Christ since He walked the earth, and they continue to reject him today.

                • Joe Mudd

                  The truth of the bible is wrapped up in proper interpretation the basis of
                  which is the guide line of “sola scriptura” scripture alone interprets scripture.
                  Israel gets to heaven through the same door everyone else uses, there is
                  nothing special about them or anyone we are all the same, equal in every
                  way. No man comes to the Father but by the Son, Jesus is the door, a
                  stumbling block for the Jew and the Rock of ages Christians stand on.
                  Jesus the fulfillment of the law.

                • jdbaird

                  Exactly, it’s simple I don’t know why people try and complicate it.

                • IsraeliCojones

                  Jews have rejected Christ since He walked the earth, and they continue to reject him today.

                  LOL. Of course, we are Jewish . And intent to remain so. Now go cry in your beer.

                • jdbaird

                  Well then you’re on your way to hell. Because even under your own system of the law you don’t atone for your sins. “For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.” And the last time I heard there’s no animal sacrifices going on (not that it would do any good), so you’re just piling up God’s wrath against yourself and still waiting for a Messiah that’s come and gone.

                • IsraeliCojones

                  Because even under your own system of the law you don’t atone for your sins.

                  According to my law, not recognizing Jesus is not a sin, it’s exactly what we have to do.

                  Your logic is a spinning wheel.

                  WELL maybe Israel should put up a sea block, sink any ship that approaches, create a wall of tanks around Gaza on land, starve them out of existence and end the problem!!

    Should these fools decide to use this power as described above they will not only face the full force of Israel’s military but the wrath of God in Heaven.

    • Cindy09

      True. God will keep His part of the covenant He has with Israel. NO. MATTER. WHAT.

      • 1endtimes2020

        God said “I will bless those who bless my people and cursr those who curse them” Since then, the gentile who accepts Jesus Christ died for our sins (to gain entrance to a sin-free heaven) will also be under Gods’ blessings as they bless Israel.

        Seriously? The muslims are the agressors here. They have no trouble with honor killings, random killings, stoning women, and too many other disgusting practices that should relegate that vile excuse for a religion to the trash heap of history. You stand with them? Stand under a bomb.

            lol. That’s a good way of looking at it. Scoopers are the smartest folks I know, but not many actually would want to read dear leader’s books, so I don’t doubt some would not know of that quote. Well done :-)

    • marketcomp

      Stewie, I think this administration has already shown us it’s true colors and they ain’t pretty. My heart goes out to the people of Isreal. I wish we could have turned this election for them alone.

      • 1endtimes2020

        Despite having to campaign against Obama and his helper, Bill Clintin, Romney came very close. It’s too bad Romney didn’t ask Obama, during a debate, what HE thought happened in Benghazi. It would at least have alerted millions, who didn’t know about what had happened to Ambassador Stevens and the soldiers protecting him, and begin asking questions. Once they would have realized there was a suspicion of a cover up of wrong doing (not sending help), it could have made a big difference in the outcome of the election. The door would have been opened for Romney to discuss it, and the media would have HAD to talk about it. I think Romney’s advisors made a huge mistake, speaking only of the economy. This was a big relief for Obama. Obama knows he averted a disaster. Even Clinton phoned Romney to tell him he should have won the election. What a nerve.

        • marketcomp

          1endtime2020, you are so right. I like it that Romney was the first one to speak out about the emabasies buring and then ridicule by people like Peggy Noonan and Bill Krysto and really most of the establishment GOPl. I am so tired of these people because after that he never really talked about it again.

          • 1endtimes2020

            I agree with you. Now Obama has to be soooo careful not to show his anti-Israel thinking, No wonder he took off to Asia. He can run, but we know what will be foremost on his mind while he’s away. I’m sure he’ll be keeping a constant lookout about the events going on in Israel. He’ll try to divert attention from Israel, while hoping events de-escalate. He is not in a comfortable zone right now.

  • KurtUSA

    I guess Hamas having a rocket that can target Isreal’s largest population center was just a matter of time. Eventually, they will have even worse weapons given enough time. The question I have, is what is the Isreali government going to do about it? The only realistic solution is to make sure there is no one in Gaza or any surrounding country that is capible or stupid enough to try and use such weapons. You do this by creating a deterent. You make sure that any cowardly baby killer is either in jail or in a grave somewhere. They had there chance at a state, they would rather kill Jewish babies. Time to kill all of the terrorist they can find in Gaza and reoccupy the land G-d gave to the Jews. Then allow anyone in Gaza who thinks Jews should not be in the middle east to find another country to lic=ve in. Anything short of this means, that after a shorter period than after Cast Lead, the rockets and worse will start again, terrorizing an increasing larger circle of the Jewish people. Time for the politicians to get out of the way and allow the brave IDF do their job and end the nightmare currently affecting Isreali citizens. G-d speed to the IDF.

      There will be a serious encounter, enough to motivate the Vatican to do what Mary, the mother of Jesus, had requested in 1917. Ever hear of Fatima, and the miracle of the sun? Ever hear of the three shepherd children Mary apprared to several times. There are photos of 70,000 people waiting in the rain for the miracle, most of them not believing it will happen, including the anti-Christian government leaders of Portugal. It did happen, and when it was over, all the people were completely dry, and so was the ground, and every leaf on the trees. The last of the 3 children, Lucy, died a few years ago. She had seen Mary again, and was told that if the world did not return to God, the world would become Communist. Lucy asked if that included the United States. Mary said yes.
      So, what was the request Mary wanted, authorized by her Son? It was to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart, so that Russia would not spread its errors throughout the world. What errors—we know the history. It’s the same Russia Obama wants to be “more flexible” with. Mary spoke those words just before Russia became Communist.
      Mary also said the Pope would consecrate Russia,along with the Bishops in the world, and it would be converted to true Christianity, but “it will be late”. and there will be “peace for a time”. The Vatican became ‘modernized ‘ in the early 1960, and liberalized. Previous Popes had warned about the slippery slope of liberalization. It was true, because the Vatican did not want to reveal the request to the Christian world. It will be forced to, very soon. The newspaper columnists in Rome are hounding the Vatican all the time. The person who has been fighting the Vatican all his life is Father Nicholas Gruner (he looks like Santa Claus) and is called ‘the Fatima priest’.

    The only way these savages will be controlled is when someone drops a nuclear weapon on them, maybe like that they will understand that their tactic of attacking innocent people is not in their best interest. I am not sure but I think Israel has nuclear weapons and the only way they are going to put this savages to sleep is to detonate a big one on them, if It was up to me I would’ve done it a long time ago, and I know its a little crude but we did it in Japan and it worked like a charm.

    And how did Hamas GET these rockets? Iran. Iran is the key to all of this. Stop Iran and Hamas and Hezbollah take a big beating. But the other problem now is Egypt. If Iran is neutralized, will the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafists in Egypt step in to fill the void and re-supply Hamas and Hezbollah? Obama and Hillary Clinton are going to keep kicking themselves for getting rid of Mubarak. Obama and Clinton have singlehandedly destabilized the entire Middle East and are about to let Iran get a nuclear bomb. Once Iran gets the bomb do you really think Obama will do anything about it? Give me a break. He will say that we have to live with it just like we live with a nuclear Pakistan. But Iran’s bomb will probably unleash the final war in the Middle East, a nuclear war. The only question is, will nations like Saudi Arabia get into the fight as well with their own nuclear weapons? What a mess. But, hey, Americans voted to re-elect the man who made all of this possible. Hope they can sleep well at night knowing that.

Once Iran has nuclear weapons, it will be a whole new ballgame.

  • stage9

    For those of you who are interested, there is a really good website that explains where all of this fits in biblical terms and the biblical timeline of end times events.

    http://www.arewelivinginthelastdays.com/road/mewar.html

    The YouTube presentation on the page is a playlist presentation, so it will automatically begin successive videos automatically. It is a bit dry but it explains in great detail what all of this means in terms of Israel’s future. The site also includes a textual version of the video presentation that you can also follow if you choose.

    What really disturbs me is the fact that America is nowhere mentioned in biblical prophesy. That is because it is believed that America will literally not exist any longer.

      I mean we have so many folks in positions of authority in this nation who are simply too stupid to be there. I can’t point to a SINGLE person who I believe is competent enough to lead us in this age of terror and uncertainty. No one! And in a time when we NEED a strong and courageous, Constitutionally aware leader, we have the weakest president to ever sit in the oval office, put there by a little over half of our nation!

      We have truly educated ourselves into imbecility!
