Israel stops to mourn those who died in defense of the Jewish state

As the sirens sounded for two minutes the nation of Israel fell silent as Jewish people stood to honor all of those who had given their lives in defense of the Jewish state in their many wars as well as those who had been killed in terrorist attacks.

Prime Minister Olmert has pledged to the bereaved families of the fallen that he would do whatever was within his power to strengthen Israel's security and to lead it towards the path of peace. Israel's Remembrance Day this year comes at a time when the Jewish state faces major threats from without and from within, those who want to eliminate the Jewish state and take the land of Israel for its own.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As Israel marks Remembrance Day, a day to honor Israeli soldiers killed in all of the wars of its brief history, the Jewish state faces the biggest potential for war that it has ever seen, that is according to Bible prophecy. The modern-day Jewish state of Israel has in its brief 58 year history seen many attempts by its enemies to destroy the state and to annihilate its people.

Even as the revived Jewish nation was announcing the conclusions of the UN's decision to establish a Jewish state, the war of independence was already in full force as the Arab world endeavored to end the reestablishment of the nation at its very outset. The Sinai War in 1956, the Six-Day War of 1967 when Israel was under attack at all borders, and even the '73 War, the Yom Kippur War, launched on Israel's holiest day, the Day of Atonement, all of these wars have failed to wipe out the Jewish state.

According to Bible prophecy, it's not going to get any better, only worse as the ancient Jewish prophets have revealed. Daniel, in Daniel 11, and Ezekiel, in Ezekiel 38, plus Jeremiah, Isaiah, Micah, and many others all wrote of the pending wars yet to come upon Israel.

Remembrance Day 2006 in Israel is only a reminder that there are many wars yet ahead in Israel's future and even more intense wars, that is according to Bible prophecy, Bible prophecy that will be fulfilled.
