Future Northern, Central, and Southern Offensives against Israel!
November 1, 2006
Empowered by weapons replacement, rebuilding of military bunker complexes, and a political offensive, we now find Hizballah, a terror army led, financed, and put in place by Iran and Syria, preparing for a northern offensive against Israel, while the Hamas is creating a trained army in Israel for a Southern and Central Attack.

Hizballah Demands More Government Power in Lebanon
Emboldened by this summer’s war with Israel, the radical Islamist Hizballah has gone on the political offensive inside Lebanon, determined either to replace or to bring down the pro-American government. Hizballah and an allied Christian political party led by Gen. Michel Aoun are demanding a government reshuffle that would give them more positions – and would in effect give Hizballah veto power over any legislation.
They have threatened to boycott the government or try to bring it down through strikes and street demonstrations if they don’t get more posts.
U.S. officials say that by gaining veto power, Hizballah would paralyze the government, extend Syrian influence over Lebanon, and ruin Lebanon’s prospects to rebuild.

Hizballah Could Take Power within Five Years
Hizballah could definitely take power in Lebanon within a few years…even within five years,” said Dr. Boaz Ganor, deputy dean of the Lauder School of Government and Diplomacy at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya and executive director of the International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism.

DEBKAfile Exclusive: Israel Air Force warplanes over-fly Hizballah’s reconstructed command centers and fortifications in S. Beirut Tuesday
October 31, 2006, 1:22 PM (GMT+02:00)
According to DEBKAfile’s military sources, the low Israeli air passes, about which the Lebanese government complained, recorded Hizballah’s reestablishment in Beirut’s Shiite Dahya district, two months after its military centers were flattened in the Lebanon war. It is now a closed military zone whose entry is closely guarded by Hizballah operatives. Israeli warplanes also recorded Hizballah’ s revived bunker
system, foundations for new rocket launchers and rebuilt intelligence and surveillance positions rising day by day along the Lebanese-Israeli border. Similarly, the tempo of Iranian-Syrian weapons consignments to Hizballah units has been stepped up. They include ground-to-ground missiles, anti-air, anti-tank and shore-to-sea missiles.
DEBKAfile’s military sources confirm that Hizballah has fully re-stocked the arsenal of rockets
of the type which blasted northern Israel for 33 days in July and August. A senior Israeli military source pointed out to DEBKAfile that intelligence-gathering on Hizballah’s recovery, rearming and regrouping for battle is of little use when it is not followed up by action. He disclosed that each time the disturbing data is put before the chief of staff and his superiors in Jerusalem, no one there decides on a response. Syria and Hizballah are exploiting this inertia to openly refortify and rearm their former positions on the border and southern Beirut, while their arms convoys ply Lebanon’s highways in broad daylight. Neither the Lebanese army nor UNIFIL’s European contingents deployed in S.
Lebanon and at sea make any move to stall the illegal influx of war materiel.
An Israeli intelligence source commented that the arms embargo contained in UN resolution 1701 is a one-way exercise. It keeps the Lebanese army and anti-Syrian militias from procuring weapons but does nothing to halt supplies to Hizballah and other pro-Syrian groups, which Israeli intelligence officers see as having two goals: 1. The takeover of Beirut’s government centers in Beirut by Iran-backed Hizballah and pro-Syrian factions – if possible without bloodshed. The weapons will be used to quell possible political or armed resistance. None of these groups, joined by Gen. Michel Aoun’s pro-Syrian Maronie Christians will have no qualms about sparking a civil war or murdering prime minister Fouad Siniora and other ministers in order to achieve their aims.
This information has been in American, French, German and Israeli intelligence since the start of October, prompting US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice to say Monday, Oct. 30: “We too have heard that there are people who would like to destabilize the government of Prime Minister Siniora. We’ve heard that there are people who would like to intimidate or assassinate again, they’ve done it before in Lebanon.” 2. In the case of an armed clash, however limited in scope, between the US and Iranian forces massed in the Persian Gulf or in Iraq – which Israel’s high command believes unavoidable – informed Israeli sources have no doubt Hizballah will hit back on Tehran’s behalf with a fresh rocket offensive against Israeli cities. Intelligence-gathering is important, say those sources, but action to head off a fresh war offensive against Israel is vital. Buzzing Beirut will solve nothing.

Galant: Hamas building real army in Gaza
JPost Staff and AP, THE JERUSALEM POST
October 31, 2006
OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant said Tuesday that since the disengagement from Gaza, the strength of Hamas has grown considerably.
Speaking before the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Galant went on to say that Hamas was preparing units for battle, even against IDF armored units.
According to experts, Hamas has drawn many conclusions from the war in Lebanon and is attempting to emulate Hizbullah’s tactics.
Galant said that Hamas was organizing itself into a “professional” army, with battalions, divisions, and perhaps even more.
In addition, said Galant, “Thousands of families living in the Gaza Strip make a living by smuggling weapons into the area.”

Ezekiel 38:8 – “After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.”
The “after many days” have piled up to some twenty-six hundred years since Ezekiel wrote these words. “Thou” refers to Gog, the anti-Christ. “Be visited,” means to muster, or to be called to arms. The rest of the verse identifies the general time, the place of the battle, and the people he will attack.
The time (latter years) represents the closing years of the age of the Gentiles. The land is the restored nation of Israel that has been “brought back from the sword” (that has been restored from war). “And is gathered out of many people” refers to the residents of the land that is “brought back from the sword,” which have been gathered out of many nations across the face
of the earth.
“Against the mountains of Israel, which have always been waste” gives a topographical description of the land of Israel into which the anti-Christ will plunge southward. “Which has always been waste” refers to the hundreds of years between A.D. 135 and 1948 that the land of Israel was, compared to her former years of productivity, virtually a barren wasteland. “But is brought forth out of the nations” is exactly how the present nation of Israel was formed – by Jews brought forth from virtually every Gentile nation on this planet. Thus far, I am confident that all this has already been fulfilled. However, the last expression in verse eight has yet to be fulfilled, but I am convinced it is very likely to occur before 2012.
The last phrase in verse eight, “And they shall dwell safely all of them,” has not happened since the temple was destroyed in A.D. 70. Israel has not lived a single year, since she became a nation in 1948, without facing the constant possibility of war or a conscious awareness of a terrorist act at any given moment. They have most assuredly not dwelled “safely all of them.” In many of my previous Prophecy Updates, which you may bring up by clicking on the
Prophecy Archive button on this page, I have detailed what I believe will cause peace to finally come to the Mid-East, in spite of what is currently going on in the region. But it will be a false peace, and of short duration. It will abruptly end with primarily the forces of Syria, Lebanon, and Iran pulling off a surprise blitzkrieg attack from the north.
The Palestinians will attack Israel from within at the same time, and Israel will be forced to withdraw into the Negev. There will be seven other Islamic nations involved in the peace of deceit but Iran, Syria, and Lebanon will provide the bulk of the force. My guesstimate for this attack will be at some point in time
between 2008 and 2012.
