Breaking Israel News: “Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.” (Jeremiah 17:5)
“Following the temporary embargo placed by the Obama administration on weapons shipments to Israel during Operation Protective Edge, Israel is taking steps to not have to rely in the future upon the kindness of strangers.
Officials from Israel’s Defense Ministry who wished to remain anonymous told NRG that Israel will focus more on bolstering its own internal manufacturing of weapons.”
Opinion: In Israel’s ancient wars and the wars of Independence, the nation was outnumbered many times over:
A few examples:
- Exodus 14:13-14 Pharaoh at the Red Sea
- Exodus 17:8-15 War at Rephidim
- 2 Chronicles 20 War with Edom, Ammon and Moab
- Judges 7 Gideon at Midian
- Esther 8-9 Persian war
- 1948 War of Independence
- 1956 Sinai War
- 1967 Six-Day War
- 1968 War of Attrition
- 1973 Yom Kippur War
- 2006 Lebanon War
God always provides a protector for times such as these.
In recent wars, the 2012 Thanksgiving Hamas rocket attacks and the recent 50 day war with Hamas, Israel relied on the US-provided Iron Dome and IDF fire power.
In the future wars of Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38, and Armageddon, the Lord Himself will be Israel’s protector.
