Israel plans a nuclear strike on Iran

The Sunday Times based in London England, had a story that said Israel has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iran's Uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons using low yield nuclear bunker busters.

The Sunday Times story was based upon contacts with Israeli military sources; however, Jerusalem officials refused to comment on the report, and there was speculation that Israel may be trying to scare Iran or conjole the US into taking stronger action. Iran came out strongly in response to the report declaring that any attack would be met with a response that the attackers would regret.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Sunday Times report that Israel has a secret plan to use nuclear weapons to attack Iran's nuclear weapons program is somewhat of a precursor to the scenario of Bible prophecy for both of these nations.

For several years now there has been speculation that Israel would attack the Iranian nuclear program as they did the Iraqi nuclear program back in the 1980's. Israel has always said they do not want to do this alone, but also told the world if no one else steps up to deal with Iran's nuclear program that is developing a Nuclear Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD), Israel would go it alone. The report in the London-based Sunday Times seems to indicate that Israel is ready to do what needs to be done. Tehran has responded by saying, as they have been saying all along, that they will strike any attacker, especially Israel and render devastating damages to those who come after Iran. This unfolding scenario is a lead-up to the prophetic scenario found in Bible prophecy for both Iran and Israel in the Last Days.

The Psalmist in Psalm 83:6 and the ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel in Ezekiel 38:5, both mention Iran by its biblical name as a major player at the beginning of the yet future seven year Tribulation Period and a member of an alignment of nations that attack the Jewish state of Israel. Both of these passages, Psalm 83 and Ezekiel 38 say that the attack on Israel will be to remove the Jewish state from the Earth.

This report indicates that the stage is being set for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
