Russia is one of Israel’s greatest enemies. It has armed Israel’s enemies since the 1970s, and supplied them with intelligence and satellite intel since 1973. Russia has supplied Iran, Syria and Hezbollah with an enormous modern arsenal, including its best anti-tank missiles.
Russia has blocked UN sanctions to stop the Mullahs from building their bombs, and defending the bomb manufacturing facilities with state-of-the-art air defenses, which may possibly be good enough to take down Israel’s second cruise missiles.
The prophet Ezekiel warned that Russia (Rosh) will lead a coalition of mostly Muslim nations against Israel:
“And the word of the LORD came to me saying, “Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, “Thus says the Lord GOD, Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them splendidly attired, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them wielding swords; Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer with all its troops; Beth-togarmah from the remote parts of the north with all its troops – many peoples with you.'”
Of course Iran is an ongoing threat to Israel but without oil dollars and Russian weapons they would not be nearly as threatening. Nevertheless, the leaders of Iran have repeatedly and publically called for the total destruction of Israel.
Syria is the enemy next door, armed to the teeth with Russian weapons paid for by Iranian oil dollars. It’s the master of Hezbollah, providing it with all of its weapons and logistics, plus support bases outside of Lebanon.
Syria has three brigades of surface-to-surface missiles, capable of hitting any target in Israel and likely tipped with highly toxic Sarin, VX gas, mustard gas, anthrax, botulinum toxin, and Ricin. It is common knowledge that the Syrians hide Iranian nuclear materials to keep them off the UN Sanctions radar.
The Western MSM (Main Stream Media) continuously distorts its news coverage to limit Israel’s ability to defend itself. The MSM uses selective reporting, forgery, staging and simple dishonesty. A few thousand individuals, some local Muslims but most based in Western cities – notably London, Paris and New York – are responsible for the distortion.
The UN is no friend of Israel. In all of Israel’s wars, the UN forced it to cease operations before its forces had won decisive victories, so guaranteeing future wars. UN “peacekeepers” stepped out of the way when Israel’s enemies were ready to attack http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six-Day_Warand have been complicit in terror attacks on Israel. In the Lebanese conflict, the UN published daily details of Israel’s troop movements, but not those of Hezbollah.
Pakistan is also a staunch enemy of Israel. The head of Pakistan’s nuke program gave the Mullahs the means to wipe out Israel. The Pakistani government did not sanction him, and is probably providing technical support for the Iranian centrifuge program.
This is just a small sample of Israel’s enemies; those who wish Israel to cease to exist. But the Bible is filled with God’s love for Israel. Those who go against Israel are essentially going against God Himself and his wrath surely will be poured out upon them:
“I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed” (Genesis 12:3).
