First the Video:
From Mike Evans the founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Team
In a video released by German television, General Ataollah Salehi, commander of the Iranian army, has declared that it "Will Take Us 11 Days 'To Wipe Israel Out of Existence'" although he is a little vague on how he reached his calculations. "Nothing can prevent Iranian missiles from targeting the heart of Israel, if Iran is subjected to a military strike by Israel."
Iranian Chief-of-Staff General Hassan Firouzabadi reiterated Iran's readiness should its nuclear sites be threatened: "We are fully prepared to confront any attack that would threaten the interests of Iran. We have sufficient means and the necessary force to defend our territory."
General Salehi seemed to challenge Israel with his comments: "The truth is that Israel does not have the courage to attack us. If we are subjected to any attack by Israel, I do not think we will need more than 11 days to wipe Israel out of existence."

Last Wednesday, Iran launched a long-range, solid-fuel missile capable of reaching Israel and Europe. Pentagon officials cautioned, "(Iran) can either continue on this path of continued destabilization in the region or decide to pursue relationships with the countries in the region and the United States that are more normalized."
The type of rocket launched can be fueled in advance and hidden in various locations until fired. Many in Israel think the test firing was directly related to Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Washington on Monday, May 18, and President Obama's threats to implement more sanctions if Iran does not come to the table on its nuclear program.
A senior fellow at London's International Institute for Strategic Studies surmised that Iran could wed the capabilities of the Sajjil-2 with its burgeoning nuclear capabilities and produce a nightmare situation unlike any other the U.S. and Israel have ever faced.
Six Iranian warships have been dispatched to international waters as a show of force against "foreign threats." This includes the Gulf of Aden which is a vital link for both Persian Gulf Oil and the world economy. This move comes only five days after an Iranian surface-to-surface missile with a range of 2000 km was test fired. According to Admiral Habibollah Sayyari the move by Iran was "to protect oil tankers from the world's fifth-largest crude exporter against pirate attacks."
"Iran has dispatched six ... warships to international waters and the Gulf of Aden region in an historically unprecedented move by the Iranian Navy," Sayyari said. He reiterated that preserving Iran's "territorial integrity" in its southern waters called for "perseverance and firmness" by its navy, and was "indicative of the country's high military capability in confronting any foreign threat on the country's shores," Sayyari said.
This announcement was made the same day President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad rejected the most recent Western proposal to stop Iran's nuclear program: "Our talks [with major powers] will only be in the framework of cooperation for managing global issues and nothing else. We have clearly announced this," Reuters reported. "The nuclear issue is a finished issue for us. We will not allow anyone to negotiate with us outside the [UN International Atomic Energy] Agency's regulations and issues," Ahmadinejad told a news conference.
This year, Iran will have enough centrifuges to produce an atomic bomb, which they want to wipe out Israel. Over 50 percent of the Jews living in Israel have said they will leave Israel if Iran gets the bomb. If Israel ever needed your support, it is now.

Please stand up for Israel, today. Bless her with an "I Support Israel" gift to help provide food, clothing, medications, and shelter for the poor Russian Jews who left everything behind to become a part of God's promise. The world's economy has created a grave crisis for the poor. They are forgotten and suffering.
