US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities last year by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran. The strength of the leaked report also relies on the confirmed history of the United States thwarting a previous effort when Former US diplomat Zbigniew Brzezinski, who enthusiastically campaigned for Obama in 2008, called on him to shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran as they fly through Iraq.
The story, which was also picked up by Israel National News (Arutz Sheva) and the Washington Times which originally came from Kuwait, begins with “well-placed” sources saying that Netanyahu, along with Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon, and then-Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, had decided to carry out airstrikes against Iran’s nuclear program after consultations with top security commanders. The Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran last year soon after Israel had discovered that the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back.
According to the report, “Netanyahu and his commanders then agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army’s chief of staff, Benny Gantz, to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran’s nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel’s security.”
The sources added that Gantz and his commanders then prepared the requested plan and that Israeli fighter jets trained for several weeks in order to make sure the plans would work successfully. Israeli fighter jets reportedly even carried out experimental flights in Iran’s airspace after they managed to break through radars.
The report told of an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration and revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry; Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.
The Brzezinski Affair
This shocking news smacks of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s influence. Brzezinski was the National Security Advisor to Jimmy Carter, who began the policy of assisting the Mujahideen in its fight with the Soviets in Afghanistan. Officially, the 2008 Obama campaign considered Brzezinski for a top advisory position but backed out:
Brzezinski was a top candidate to become an official advisor to President Obama, but he was downgraded after Republican and pro-Israel Democratic charges during the campaign that Brzezinski’s anti-Israel attitude would damage Obama at the polls.
Unofficially, there are indications that Brzezinski has practically been an Obama insider when it comes to foreign policy.
In 2009, Brzezinski urged Obama to shoot down Israeli jets from U.S.-controlled Iraq if they ever chose to carry out a strike on Iran. In an interview with the Daily Beast, Brzezinski was asked about an Israeli strike on Iran and said the following:
“We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?… we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not.”
A few years later, it appeared that Israel was secretly partnering with Azerbaijan to launch a strike on Iran but that the covert strategy was leaked by the Obama administration. Azerbaijan is a country that borders Iran to the north. At the time, relations between Israel and Azerbaijan were strengthening and relations between Azerbaijan and Iran were fraying.
Brzezinski’s threat to shoot Israel planes out of the skies over Iraq didn’t even need to be idle; it wouldn’t be necessary. With Azerbaijan a country that borders Iran, the proximity of the nuclear sites for those Israeli jets would make the mission easier than it otherwise would have been.
As was the case with the threat to shoot down Israeli planes, the leaking of this information smacked of Brzezinski’s influence as well. Here is former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton ripping the Obama administration for leaking the information at the time:
Even when it comes to ISIS, Brzezinski’s influence on Obama is palpable, notwithstanding claims that he was rejected as an advisor in 2008. Consider that just two days prior to Obama’s September 10, 2014 speech in which he insisted “ISIL is not Islamic”, none other than Brzezinski was among a chosen few to be in attendance at a private White House dinner with Obama. Presumably, insisting that “ISIL is not Islamic” was one of the agenda items.
Within hours of that private dinner, Obama delivered this nonsense to the American people:
To demonstrate just how Brzezinski and Obama are in sync on this issue, check out what the former said in the wake of the Islamic terror attacks in Paris this past January. Brzezinski’s nonsense was so absurd that the look on his daughter’s face back in the studio at the end of this clip seems to reveal it:
A Biblical Prophetic Perspective
As Shoebat.com maintained for two decades, and last year we wrote: “no matter how many times Benjamin Netanyahu calls to stop Iran from gaining nuclear weapons and no matter what prophecy teachers proclaim that Israel will hit Iran’s nuclear facilities, they are all wrong; Iran will build nuclear weapons, but instead of aiming them at Israel, they will aim them at Saudi Arabia.”
How do we know that? Netanyahu while calling the world to intervene, should read what his greatest grandfather Isaiah said in chapter 21 of his bestseller: The Book of Isaiah.
Isaiah brilliantly predicted that Iran (biblical Elam) must and will destroy Arabia. In Isaiah 21:9, Isaiah levels a prophetic oracle against Babylon using the same announcement in Revelation 18:1-2 and Revelation 14:8: “Babylon is fallen, is fallen”:
“The burden against Dumah” (Isaiah 21:11)
“The burden against Arabia” (Isaiah 21:13)
“All the glory of Kedar will fail” (Isaiah 21:16)
These “Dumah” and “Kedar” are all in Arabia as well as “Arabia” (v.13) is also in Arabia; it can’t get any clearer than this, which is destroyed by Iran “Elam” (Isaiah 21:2) in a complete wipeout.
There has been an immense oversight by many in the field of biblical eschatology, that when it comes to the destruction of end-days Babylon, Scripture makes no mention of any of the ancient Babylonian cities: Nineveh, Ur, Babel, Erech, Accad, Sumer, Assur, Calneh, Mari, Karana, Ellpi, Eridu, Kish, or Tikrit. All of the literal references in Scripture are in Arabia. The reason for such oversight is simple; they are overly focused on Rome, regardless that Scripture clearly says “Babylon is fallen is fallen” references Arabia, literally, there are no burdens against Rome. I find that most who claim to say they “follow ONLY Scripture” in reality follow ‘traditional interpretations’ which they invoke over Scripture. For evidence on biblical Babylon, read: Muslims Rebuild The Tower Of Babel (Shocking Research!)
As to all the other biblical theories I had to endure, like why Rome is the Harlot since it sits on seven hills, when truth is that Vatican City—the city where the Catholic Church is headquartered—is not built on seven hills, but on a hill separate from the seven hills of Rome: Vatican Hill, which is not even one of the seven upon which ancient Rome was built. Those hills are on the east side of the Tiber river; Vatican Hill is on the west.
Other cities are known for having been built on seven hills as well. Istanbul is known as the City on the Seven Hills, which – consciously following the model of Rome – was built on seven hills too. There are about seventy cities that claim to be on seven hills, some of which are Jerusalem, Amman, Tehran, Brussels, Kiev, Moscow and Madrid.
Yet none of these (including Rome) were destined for destruction in the Bible, yet Arabia is (Isaiah 21).
The question I ask is this: Why would Christians follow such a theory which was proposed by the Albigensian heretics? It was the Albigensians who first proposed that Rome is the Harlot of Babylon.
The Bible is also precise and pinpoints a geographic location for this “Babylon” as was predicted in Jeremiah 49:21, literally, “the Red Sea” which confirms Arabia’s destruction. This is also confirmed in Revelation 18 regarding the harlot city:
“And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning” (Revelation 18:9). “And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What [city is] like unto this great city!” (Revelation 18:18).
And once one studies Isaiah 34, there should be no doubt. In nearly identical language concerning Mystery Babylon in Revelation 17, 18:
“Its streams shall be turned into pitch and its dust into brimstone; its land shall become burning pitch. It shall not be quenched night or day; its smoke shall ascend forever” (Isaiah 34:8-10).
Incredibly, almost three millennia before the discovery of fuel oil, Isaiah predicted the burning of the very thing that was used in Babel to build a name for the rebellious ones – the pitch. Pitch is bitumen and tar, which technically is simply crude oil.
This judgment is not against Rome but “Edom” which extends from Teman to Dedan:
“Thus Says the Lord GOD; ‘Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them. ‘Therefore thus Says the Lord GOD; ‘I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cutt off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword’” (Ezekiel 25:12-13).
The Lord vindicates Rome from this specific judgment.
So relax, God will let Obama, the devil, have his way. Iran will get its nukes. But it will direct a few on Obama’s favorite harlot, Saudi Arabia, which his beloved Muslims bow towards several times a day. In the end, the one who watches over Israel laughs. He always does, at the completion of the story which is beginning to prophetically unfold.
Editor’s Note: The Kuwaiti newspaper reported that an Israeli plan to strike Iran was thwarted by Obama but it did not indicate which country’s airspace the plan was designed to use. We originally stated it was Iraq. This may or may not have been the case. For this reason, we removed that premise from the article.
