C-of-S Gen. Eisenkott: I am confident the IDF will prevail in a war

The IDF’s Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen. Gady Eisenkott, sounded for the first time Tuesday as though he was addressing a potential war with Hizballah. He said: “There are many challenges facing us amidst the apparent calm on the northern border. Hizballah, in breach of UN resolutions, maintains a military presence and weapons systems and is constantly enhancing its capabilities. The IDF works day and night to stay ready and retain its deterrent strength.” He went on to say: “We shall continue to advance our knowledge of the enemy and [take action] to restrain its capabilities. I am absolutely sure of our military superiority, {trust in the] the high quality of our commanders and troops and [am confident in] our ability to achieve victory in the event of war.”

    Which would make God a liar for promising her eternal preservation, and given the last 4,000 years of Israel’s survival, I’d bet on you being the liar, not the Lord Jesus Christ.

      Israel is a people, you moron. judah is not.

      26. Behold days are coming, says the Lord, and I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with seed of man and seed of beasts.

      seed of man and seed of beasts: The good and the foolish of them, I will sow all of them to be My seed. Seed of man and seed of beasts. Jonathan renders. I will set them up (our edition: I will increase them) like people and I will make them succeed like a beast, whose iniquities are not visited upon her.

      9 Do not presume to say to yourselves, We have the yichus (proud lineage), we have the zechut Avot (merit of the Fathers) of Avraham Avinu (our father Abraham). For I say to you that Hashem is able to raise up from these avanim (stones) banim (sons) of Avraham. 10 And already the ax is laid at the shoresh haetzim (the root of the trees); therefore, every etz not producing pri tov (good fruit) is cut down and thrown into the eish (fire).

      |11| And Rebbe, Melech
      HaMoshiach entered into
      Yerushalayim into the Beis
      HaMikdash and, having
      looked around at everything,
      and, the hour now being late,
      he went out to Beit-Anyah with
      the Shneym Asar (Twelve).
      |12| And on the next day,
      when they came from Beit-
      Anyah, Rebbe, Melech
      HaMoshiach was hungry.
      |13| And having seen in the
      distance an etz te’enah (fig
      tree) in leaf, Rebbe, Melech
      HaMoshiach approached it to
      see whether he might find pri
      (fruit) on it. But when he
      came to it, he found nothing
      except leaves. For it was not
      the te’enim season.
      |14| And in reply, Rebbe,
      Melech HaMoshiach said to it,
      May no one ever be nourished
      from pri from you again! And
      Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach’s
      talmidim were listening.
      |15| Then they came to
      Yerushalayim. And having
      entered the Beis HaMikdash,
      Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach
      began to drive out the ones
      buying and selling in the Beis
      HaMikdash, and he
      overturned the shulchanot
      (tables) of the machalifei
      hakesafim (money changers)
      and the chairs of the ones
      selling the yonim (doves).
      |16| And he was not allowing
      anyone to carry things
      through the Beis HaMikdash.
      |17| And he was teaching
      Torah and he was saying to
      them, Has it not been written,
      BEITI BEIT TEFILLAH
      YIKAREI LKHOL HAAMMIM
      (My House shall be called a
      House of Prayer [for] all
      peoples), but you have made it
      a MEARAT PARITZIM (den of
      robbers). [YESHAYAH 56:7;
      YIRMEYAH 7:11]
      |18| And the Rashei
      Hakohanim (the Chief Priests)
      and the Sofrim (Scribes)
      heard this,
      and they were seeking how
      they might destroy him, for
      they were afraid of him, for all
      the multitude were amazed at
      his torah (teaching).
      |19| And when it became late,
      Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach
      and his talmidim went out of
      the city.
      |20| And in the boker
      (morning), early, as they
      passed by, they saw the etz
      teenah (fig tree) having been
      withered from [the] roots.

        Hey IvAN, very good, wow! You know just like there is only one real etrog, there is only one real isod or Tzaddik isod haolam. If you grant me my Tzaddik isod haolam you will merit the etrog. If you don’t then you have no word and you are not from Juda.

    That’s what Israel’s enemies have said for the past 70 years. The next war will see Israel victorious on all fronts yet again. So victorious, in fact, that there will not be another war against these same enemies ever again.

    Only the warriors in the IDF know, that they train above and beyond any other army, the training is harsh and brutal. I know because I served both as a Marine an IDF infantry soldier. Any standard IDF infantry platoon outguns any other platoon of any other army in the world. The forced hikes any IDF infantry soldier goes on is way beyond what I ever endured as a Marine. G’d bless the IDF.

      IDF Warriors that’s the funniest thing i’ve heard in ages.. IDF is the most coward army in the world. The only thing it’s best in the world is killing defenceless women and children.

        Most of your women would be pleased to be free of you so they don’t get diseased by low life’s like you and your brothers.
        Uncover your women. Let them speak for themselves and be treated like other women around the world. You can keep up your affairs with your camels and donkeys.

      Amen. But Israeli arrogance is also what keeps Israelis from believing what their own prophets wrote of Jesus Christ the Son of God.

      Really? My Rabbi makes it clear that a persons destiny is not only in prayer but also in deed. Praying and not acting resulted in 6m dead. Not sure what you’re going to do, but most of us are going to act in Deed.

    amyisraelchai, Moses and your own prophets prophesied the Holocaust half a dozen times, you just refuse to read and believe the word of your God. Go read Leviticus 26 or Deuteronomy 28. What a blasphemous, rebellious, proud, and painfully ignorant comment that was…wow.

    Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; THEREFORE ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

    guns and weapons…like they protected you against the Egyptians, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, and the Romans, right?
