HASHEM makes a move...

25 Menachem Av 5772

So the Olympic games are over and nothing catastrophic happened to the world. Only, Israel disgraced herself and her King by running after the goyim (and failing so miserably at it).

But, while the world was obsessed with sports play, Israel's enemies were not at ease. Evil does not rest and evil does not play, except for keeps. This latest report from Debkafile is proof of that (as if we needed more proof).

Iran can build an N-bomb by Oct. 1. Cairo coup hampers Israeli action

...Iran will have the capability and materials for building an operational nuclear bomb by approximately October 1.

However, it's also true that He who "neither slumbers nor sleeps" is in masterful control of the situation even if we're not and there is clear evidence of His moves:

...Netanyahu and Barak have behaved as though a decision on Iran is in their exclusive province, insulated from the turmoil and change swirling through Israel’s Arab neighbors in the past two years.

But the Middle East has a way of catching up with and rushing past slow-moving politicians:

Sunday, at 10:00 a.m. Netanyahu warned his ministers that no threat was worse than a nuclear Iran. At 17:55 p.m., Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi dropped a bombshell in Cairo. In one fell swoop, he smashed the Egyptian military clique ruling the country for decades, sacked the Supreme Military Council running Egypt since March 2011 and cut the generals off from their business empire by appropriating the defense ministry and military industry.

That fateful eight hours-less-five-minutes have forced Israel’s leaders to take a second look at their plans for Iran.

Morsi’s lightning decisions were the finishing touches that proved the Islamist Bedouin terror attacks in Sinai of Aug. 5 fitted neatly into a secret master plan hatched by Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood to seize full control of rule in Cairo – a plan DEBKAfile first revealed exclusively last Friday, Aug. 10.

Netanyahu now faces one of the hardest dilemmas of his political career - whether to go forward with the Iran operation, which calls for mustering all Israel’s military and defense capabilities – especially for the repercussions, after being suddenly confronted with unforeseen security challenges on its southwestern border, for thirty years a frontier of peace.

The exceptional talents of Netanyahu and Barak to put off strategic decisions until they are overtaken by events has landed Israel in an especially perilous plight, surrounded now by a soon-to-be nuclear-armed Iran from the east; threatened Syrian chemical warfare from the north and the Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt to its south.

No one can beat HASHEM at His own game.
