Israel in a Really Tight Spot

Israeli Military analysts believe Israel will be in a war not only with Hamas, but also Hezbollah some time this summer. If it were only these two, and Israel wanted to get really tough, it would be over very quickly. I wish that was the whole story, but it isn't. Syria has now moved scud missiles into Lebanon for Hezbollah, giving them a very long-range capability; in fact all of Israel is now in their sights. The question now to ask? Is Syria planning on joining in this time? Lebanon has already made Hezbollah part of the Lebanese government thereby opening up the possibility of the whole country now being in danger from the IDF and IAF. Assad of Syria has made the statement several times over the past few months that he is ready for war with Israel - and that is the only thing Israel understands. But in fact he has that a little backwards. Israel wants more than anything to have peace, but it is the Arabs who only believe in conquest by military power. It has become obvious to me over the years that they don't want peace by way of a negotiated agreement. They want to be able to say they destroyed Israel and killed the Jews.

I feel like I am preaching to the choir because most reading this know there is no such thing as peace with the Islamic terrorists. They have programmed and indoctrinated their kids to believe to die killing Jews gives Allah glory and praise. Many have taken polls in Gaza asking 6th graders and younger what they wanted to be when they grew up. The large majority said they want to be suicide bombers and kill Jews.

The next war will not be like any other Israel has experienced, because the weapons now in the hands of Hamas and Hezbollah, Syria and Iran will present a totally different scenario.

I believe we will see Isa. 17:1 come to pass if Syria gets involved, and it looks like they have now talked themselves into taking no other option other than to join the fight. The Government controlled daily newspapers, continue to spread incitement and hatred towards Israel.

With Obama as President we know Israel cannot count on any help from the US, or at least not in time to make a difference. In Europe, anti-Semitism in 2009 more than doubled over the previous year. In some places there has been over a 500% rise in violent attacks upon Jews, and Jewish Institutions such as synagogues and Jewish businesses. Jews are beginning to pour out of Europe now and it is still possible to simply fly to Israel on commercial airlines. However, we are hearing Hezbollah making speeches saying that they can now strike Tel Aviv airport. With armaments flying into Beirut from Iran, North Korea, China and Russia, they are threatening that should Israel attack, they will retaliate against Tel Aviv. In other words, if Israel strikes Beirut airport, they will hit the airport in Tel Aviv. This has Israel in a really tight spot. If Israel sits here waiting, and doesn't try to stop not only Iran, but the arms build-up in Lebanon and Gaza, Israel will only make it more uncertain of achieving an easy victory. Or any victory! One thing is certain, and this also has been stated by more than one Israeli General; many Israeli civilians will die in this next war.

If you are anything like this Messenger you will know who wins in the end. God will gather again the second time His people to the land God promised Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by an everlasting covenant (Isa. 11:11-12)

We have a very busy schedule starting the end of this month. There is so much to be done, and so many places to visit and speak with those who need to know certain things. My greatest desire is to have a much larger boat to save many more. Our boat in Turkey may have to be moved soon, if the relationship with Israel deteriorates further in the next few months. We ask for your prayers and support for so much is needed. Our boat here in Israel went back into the water today and it is in very good condition. The one in Turkey should go in the water after repairs, some time this coming week. It also is in very good condition. And as I said in earlier reports, tourism is down in Turkey and the economy is very depressed. Now is the time to find the best deal for a 35 to a 40-meter Gullet in good condition capable of carrying over a 100 at a time to Israel. Pray with me for this need to be met.

No one knows how much more time we have to prepare. I thank God for every day He gives us, knowing that many are on the verge of making a commitment to bless Israel.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers, pray for this Ministry and your part in it.

Shalom, Jerry Golden
