US Pull Out Could Expose Israel to Annihilation

A total American pullout from Iraq will provide a “land bridge” for a Shi’ite Muslim Crescent – headed by Iran and Hizbullah – to “pulverize” Israel. a Hizbullah general says.

He added, "The Iranian forces could cross Iraq and arrive in Syria in order to participate in a direct war on the Golan front,” World Net Daily’s Joseph Farrah reported.

The crescent would expose Israel to an axis of Iraq, Iran, Hizbullah, Lebanon, Hamas and Syria, according to retired Hizbullah Brigadier-general Walid Sakariya, who also is a Hizbullah legislator in Lebanon's parliament.

Hizbullah already has an estimated 60,000 missiles in Lebanon, three times as many the number it possessed before the Second Lebanon War five years ago and in direct violation of UN agreement 1701 that ended the war.

President Barack Obama has withdrawn most of the American combat troops, but 50,000 remain to help Iraq maintain control over insurgents and terrorists. Iraq and the United States are discussing the possibility of several thousand American soldiers remaining beyond the end of this year, the deadline President Obama has set for removing all U.S. troops from Iraqi soil.

The president, whose popularity has sunk to new lows, is facing strong national resentment against American interference in foreign countries as the economy creeps closer to a new recession and unemployment remains at 9 per cent or even higher.

As our troops leave Iraq in even greater numbers, the violence (celebrations?) there will increase...as we have seen in recent days/weeks. Iran will certainly take control in Iraq, providing an unobstructed roadway leading straight into Syria. Israel simply cannot allow that to happen. Things will get very bumpy over there...to put it rather mildly!

Israel will get no support from the USA, either. Israel has been tossed to the wolves.

I agree. Unless the Lord intervenes, what happened today is just a dress rehearsal...it's going to escalate and then explode. We need to pray more than we ever have!
