I got this from a friend who is a conservative, a veteran, a former journalist, and prolific professional writer.
He says he can’t vouch for what you’ll read below, but it was sent to him by a former captain in the U.S. Navy, who is “very reliable.” Here’s what the naval officer wrote (note that he wrote this BEFORE the assassination of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, and the attacks on our embassy in Cairo and on our consulate in Benghazi):
Subject: Something unusual is happening in Israel
Date: Sept. 11, 2012
Just recv’d this from a good friend in Bel Air, MD
I got this from one of my close friends who has a brother in Israel and believe it 100%. Something is coming.
I don’t know if you follow such things but…
My brother and his family live in Jerusalem – he is a minister – and a former Navy SEAL – his office is close to one of Israel ‘s largest underground military bases.
He called me last night which is very unusual – usually it is email.
He called to tell me that he is sending his family back to the US immediately due to what he is seeing happen within the last week and what he is being told by his military contacts in both the Israel and US military.
He said he is seeing with his own eyes military movements the likes of which he has never seen in his 20+ years in Israel. What he called a massive redeployment and protective tactics of forces is underway.
Over the last two days he has seen anti-aircraft missile deployments throughout the Jerusalem area including 3 mobile units that he can see from his office windows. In addition, he has seen very large Israeli armored columns moving fast toward the Sinai where Egypt has now moved in Armor.
There are reports of the top military leaders meeting with Israel’s senior rabbi which is something that has happened preceding every prior military campaign.
His admonition is to watch carefully and pray for Israel and its people.
He is convinced that barring something extraordinary Israel will attack Iran – with or without the US – and very soon. It is the belief in Israel that Obama does not stand with Israel but with the Arab countries.
He has told me before that Israel will saber rattle from time to time but that this time is very different from what he is seeing and hearing. He was at the Wailing Wall 2 days ago and there were hundreds of IDF [Israel Defense Forces] soldiers there. As he was leaving he passed at least 20 military buses full of soldiers in route to the wall.
He has never seen this before either.
Just thought I would pass this along.
My brother is not an alarmist by any means. When he talks like this it gets my attention for sure and usually I find he knows more than he shares.
There are reports that Israel is asking Obama to come to Israel immediately but they are being answered with silence.
My opinion is that I see the making of the perfect storm.
Obama in fact is refusing to communicate with Israel. Reuters reports on Sept. 11, 2012, that “In a highly unusual rebuff to a close ally, the White House said on Tuesday that President Barack Obama would not meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a U.S. visit later this month….”
In so doing, the POS in the White House is deliberately isolating Israel — at a time when extremist Muslims in the Mideast are rampaging, rioting, killing.
Israel is being pushed into a corner.
God help us. Pray!
DEBKA is reporting tonight (Sept. 13) that “In the wake of the anti-US Islamist turbulence sweeping Arab capitals, Israel has posted additional military, police and security forces in the West Bank, opposite the Gaza Strip and among Israeli Arab communities following information received that all three are preparing to stage big anti-American protests Friday, Sept. 14, which could easily spill over into Israel.”
