Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu at first said that he would attend President Obama's nuclear summit in Washington and then reversed his decision and decided not to attend once he learned that the Egyptian and Saudi Arabian delegates were going to use the summit to expose the truth behind the Israeli nuclear arsenal. The Israeli policy has been ambiguity as it relates to the potential of a nuclear powered Israel with the Israeli government neither denying or confirming that they have a nuclear arsenal ready to use against any enemy attack.
The potential deadly Israeli nuclear arsenal has been a deterrent to any Arab or Islamic country coming against Israel in an all out war in recent years and has acted as a balance against an Iranian offensive nuclear attack.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The reality that Israel has a nuclear arsenal that could be used to defend itself against an all out Middle East war against the Jewish state is indeed a deterrent but not the scenario for divine protection for the Jewish people that can be found in Bible prophecy.
The question about Israel's nuclear capabilities has been on the minds of world leaders recently but of great interest to the Arab and Islamic nations of the Middle East for decades. Israel has used the policy of ambiguity pertaining to its nuclear arsenal as the main deterrent to keep their neighbors from attacking with full force in an all out war. The new Obama nuclear policy and the recently signed nuclear arms treaty between the United States and Russia has set the stage for exposing the truth about Israel's nuclear program.
Bible prophecy adds to the discussion as it lays out a scenario where the Arab and Islamic nations for a coalition and align themselves against Israel (Ezekiel 38, Daniel 11, and Psalm 83). This Islamic alignment of nations will attack the Jewish state at a time of peace which will follow a peace agreement put together by the Antichrist (Daniel 9:27, Ezekiel 38:8,11). However, Israel will not be protected at that time with nuclear weapons but instead Israel's protection will come from the heavenlies as the Lord intercedes to save the Jewish state from total destruction (Ezekiel 38:18-39:6).
Nuclear weapons in the Middle East will not stop Bible prophecy from being fulfilled.
