* UPDATE: Arutz 7 also reports on military troops coming into Israel. See the news report here. I also want to make the following more clear: The blog below doesn't necessarily mean that we will be occupied. It is based below on the article by Dr. Tabak whose sources and link is below. However, if there will be an 'occupation', it does not mean that it will be by the US. It could be NATO (as we just saw in Libya) or other international forces that could follow on the heels of the US Military, into Israel for whatever purposes - defense against Iran, whatever. It's just that once that door is opened and foreign troops enter.... it's not so easy to close it afterwards. In any case, with the PA wanting to declare itself a state, and the world pressing us to stop settlements, and people saying that the mid-east conflict has spread to their door, I think that Dr. Tabak's scenario is very interesting, and knowing from history about when we invited Rome in.... it merits watching.
Read this breaking news piece before the explanation which will be below.
The Centre for Research on Globalization just put out an interesting piece which was sent to me by one of my listeners. Here is their link
BREAKING NEWS: The Pentagon to Send US Troops to Israel. Iran is the Unspoken Target
Blacked-out news story in America...
January 2, 2012. Jerusalem. In one of the most blacked-out stories in America right now, the US military is preparing to send thousands of US troops, along with US Naval anti-missile ships and accompanying support personnel, to Israel.
It took forever to find a second source for confirmation of this story and both relatively mainstream media outlets are in Israel. With one source saying the military deployment and corresponding exercises are to occur in January, the source providing most of the details suggests it will occur later this spring. Calling it not just an “exercise”, but a “deployment”, the Jerusalem Post (see report here) quotes US Lt.-Gen Frank Gorenc, Commander of the US Third Air Force based in Germany. The US Commander visited Israel two weeks ago to confirm details for “the deployment of several thousand American soldiers to Israel.” In an effort to respond to recent Iranian threats and counter-threats, Israel announced the largest ever missile defense exercise in its history. Now, it’s reported that the US military, including the US Navy, will be stationed throughout Israel, also taking part.
While American troops will be stationed in Israel for an unspecified amount of time, Israeli military personnel will be added to EUCOM in Germany. EUCOM stands for United States European Command. ...
Iran recently made global headlines when it threatened to blockade the Straits of Hormuz if Europe and the US went ahead with their boycott of Iranian oil and the country’s central bank.One-quarter of the world’s oil passes through that waterway every day. President Obama has announced that a closure of the Straits was unacceptable and vowed to take whatever measures are necessary to keep the vital shipping lane open.
… Israeli officials suggested the flamboyant Iranian military drills this weekend were a sign that international sanctions on the country were taking a heavy toll and that any additional boycotts, on its banks or oil industry, would be crippling. [END]
This report above is quite interesting on a couple of levels. On one hand, militarily speaking, one of the tactics governments use to take control of another population is to re-deploy the local arm of law enforcement and/or troops to another area on the map (in this case, they speak about Israeli troops going to serve in Europe at EUCOM) and then replacing those troops with your own military/law enforcement. The reason for this, is that foreign troops on local soil are loyal to their own commanders, and not to the local population whom they did not grow up with and do not know and were never their 'good neighbors' and friends. I do not know if or how many Israeli troops/personnel could be transferred to serve under EUCOM in the EU, but sending any of our personnel to serve under a foreign force and on German soil is very disturbing to many here.
And what about on the ground in Israel?
Has the Foreign Invasion of Israel Begun? Those who have read and kept up with articles written by Dr. Yacov Tabak - the man who predicted (through examining Jewish texts) that our brothers and sisters would indeed be expelled from Gush Katif - and those who have listened to my show when I have interviewed him about this, may be fascinated to know that he talked about another possible future scenario: the foreign occupation of Israel. Hear the interview HERE.
Those who know history, know that Rome, the super-power of those days, was 'invited' to bring their soldiers into Israel to help with a power dispute taking place in the Kingdom. Soon after, Rome used that opportunity and put Israel under its own occupation.
"The last two Hasmonean rulers (from the line of the Maccabees) were two brothers: Hyrcanus and Aristobolus. Quarreling with each other as to who should be king, they hit on the idea of asking Rome to mediate in their dispute. And thus, in 63 BCE, Pompeii was invited to move his armies into Israel.
In 2012, the interval between Jan. 15 and Oct. 07, Hoshanna Rabbah – the seventh day of Sukkot, is exactly 266 days – 38 weeks, i.e. the nine months of a human pregnancy. According to BT Yoma 10a, "Ben-David (the Messiah) will only arrive after the evil kingdom of Rome dominates the entire world for a period of nine months as it says in Micah 5:2 "therefore give them the time it takes for her to give birth." The events at the closing stages of the Redemption process will last the nine months of human gestation.
Since it is understood that the finale of G-d's victory over the nations at the close of the Gog and Magog War takes place on the seventh day of Sukkot – Hoshanna Rabbah, it is logical to seek the year when this interval is 266 days. 2012 is such a year. To read his article, click here.
Let us keep our eyes open and watch to see what really develops, this is getting interesting.
