Hello folks! DEBKAfile, Political Analysis, Espionage, Terrorism, Security Can anyone find other corroborating news sources on this? Realistically precision strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities would only hold back their program by a few years, and after that they will certainly have the cause to develop nuclear weapons. Total war can potentially set back the Iranian nuclear program by decades to "quite a long time", depending on the extent of the bombing campaign and whether strategic nuclear weapons are used. But this will not happen because in Scripture we see that Iran and Russia one day come to be in a position to assemble a great army to attack Israel. Regime change can make things better. Or worse. If we look at the Biblical prophecies on Israel as brought to my attention by Joel Rosenberg in "Epicenter", we already see partial fulfilment of it. Return of the diaspora - Ezekiel 36:24 "For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land." Rebuilding of ruined cities - Ezekiel 36:10 "I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt." Flourishing of a once barren land - Isaiah 27:6 "In days to come Jacob will take root, Israel will bud and blossom and fill all the world with fruit." What is to come? Modern day Gog and Magog - Israel Opinion, Ynetnews It is written that the day will come that Gog, Magog, Rosh, Meshech, Tubal, Persia, Ethiopia, Libya and Gomer come to attack Israel with a great army, and lose (Ezekiel 38 ).
