The next Iranian-Israeli engagement in Syria is due in late April, early May

It is then that Tehran will try to move a special Russian-backed Iraqi Shiite force from southern Iraq into Syria and so expand its anti-Israel war front.
Since the Israeli Air Force hit a dozen Syrian and Iranian military targets on Saturday, Feb. 10, certain Israeli leaders have been vying for the most belligerent anti-Iran speeches (“They will never forget their next lesson” – Transport Minister Yisrael Katz; “We won’t let Iran set up a forward command” OC IDF’s Northern Command, Maj. Gen. Yoel Strick”). However, the plans Iran has in store  for the next round may tax them with making good on their warnings, although one at least comes after the fact. Iran is already running three forward commands in Syria – one in Damascus, one at Abu Kamal in the east and a third outside Aleppo.
Iran’s next challenge to Israel is likely to be more extensive than a lone Iranian drone intrusion and may start far from Israel’s northern border. Russia and Iran are trying to run a two-way, cross-border military movement between Iraq and Syria, which US forces in Syria have so far frustrated.

DEBKAfile’s military sources report that the United States is in the process of establishing a new “Border Security Force” in Syria, which is composed mainly of Kurdish fighters.
Iran and Russia are meanwhile building and training an elite “rapid deployment force” based on Iraqi Shiites. One of its functions will be to expand the front against Israel in both Syria and Lebanon. It is expected that the coming crossing into Syria of the Iraqi Shiite force may be used to detach a section for service on the Lebanese-Israeli border. Last month, an Iraqi Shiite militia chief traveled to Lebanon to inspect Israeli positions on that border. .
The Iraqi group is composed of 5,000 Shiite fighters, who are undergoing special training course for combat in Syria. They were handpicked from two high-performance Iraqi Shiite militias: One is the Nujaba of Kaabil (Movement of the Part of God), which is the Iraqi version of the Lebanese Hizballah and is headed by Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi. It has four sub-units, the Ammar Ibn Yasir Brigade, the Liwa al-Hamad – Praise Brigade, the Liwa al-Imam al Hassan al-Mujtaba – Imam Hssan the Chosen, and the Golan Liberation Brigade. The other militia is the Abud al-Fadl al-Abbas Forces.

This big difference between this elite Iraqi force and the other Shiite militias Tehran deploys in Syria is that it will be equipped with an air force, according to DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources. Russian and Iranian air force officers are setting up an aviation unit called the Combat Helicopters Directorates, to consist of dozens of Russian Mil Mi-17 assault and freight choppers as well as Iranian Shaed 285 attack choppers.

The bulk of the new force is expected to be ready to start moving west in the course of April and cross over into southeast Syria in the regions of Abu Kamal and Deir ez-Zour by early May at the latest. So far, the American forces deployed in western Iraq and southeastern Syria, centering in Al Tanf, have used live air force and artillery fire to push the vanguard back from the Syrian border.

A US special operations contingent also frustrated a move in the opposite direction by Syrian and Hizballah forces trying to cross the Euphrates to the eastern bank across a floating bridge laid by the Russians. They were heading to link up with the incoming Iraqi militias.  (Read DEBKAfile’s exclusive reports on Feb. 8-9). This major US operation that involved air force, artillery and commandos was somehow missed by the Israeli politicians and analysts who commented on how the US had abandoned the Syrian arena when they discussed the Israeli air offensive of last Saturday.

Despite every effort to block the Iraqi force from reaching Syria, it may find a small gap in the 1,000km long Iraqi-Syrian border and manage to slip through. Israel’s government and military leaders will then face a decision that is much harder than whether to destroy the command vehicle controlling an Iranian drone. Part of the difficulty will be that before actin, Israel will have to keep an eye on the state of relations between the US and Russia which are at a low ebb at this time and how this plays out on the ground.

    Israel has home advantage…Iran-Hezbollah are the OCCUPIERS…groups like the supremacist-named “Movement (Bowel) of the Part of God” should be confronted BEFORE they arrive on israel’s border, not after they have had time to establish themselves there. Where is the USA to bomb them en route like Russia and the US bombed ISIS? ISIS was an horrific bloodthirsty gang of marauders – Iran-Hezbollah is the same except their beards are more carefully well-groomed.

            @iVaN,

            Guess what, iVaN, by placing the Jews in Jerusalem during that time period——-2000 years ago————–you just contradicted the very garbage you’ve been regurgitating in your posts all this time over and over again!

            Just for historical accuracy, Roman authorities murdered the Rabbi Jesus when his followers publicly referred to the Rabbi as “king of the Jews”.
            As anyone who has read any objective books knows, Roman policy was very clear: “You have no king except for Caesar”——or else!

            BTW, iVaN, it looks like the “capital J” on that community computer you’re using is broken which is making you look like an anti-Semite and you wouldn’t want anyone to think that of you, right—–iVaN?

        “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it” (Tehillah 127)

        Malachi – Chapter 3

        15. And now we praise the bold transgressors. Yea, those who work wickedness are built up. Yea, they tempt God, and they have, nevertheless, escaped.

        16. Then the God-fearing men spoke to one another, and the Lord hearkened and heard it. And a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who feared the Lord and for those who valued His name highly.

        17. And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of Hosts, for that day when I make a treasure. And I will have compassion on them as a man has compassion on his son who serves him.

        18. And you shall return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God and him who has not served Him.

        19. For lo, the sun comes, glowing like a furnace, and all the audacious sinners and all the perpetrators of wickedness will be stubble. And the sun that comes shall burn them up so that it will leave them neither root nor branch, says the Lord of Hosts.

        20. And the sun of mercy shall rise with healing in its wings for you who fear My Name. Then will you go forth and be fat as fatted calves.

        …behold, the Lord commands, and he shall smite the great house into splinters, and the small house into chips. יא.
        12. Will horses run on the rock, or will one plow with cattle, for you have perverted justice to hemlock and the fruit of righteousness to wormwood? יב.
        13. Those who rejoice over a thing of nought, who say, “With our strength we have taken horns for ourselves.” יג.
        14. For, behold I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel, says the Lord God of Hosts, and they shall oppress you from the approach to Hamath until the brook of the Arabah.

        iVaN the Hater: IRAN-Hezbollah are the invaders and the occupiers – Zionism does not want to establish Jewish influence over other people’s land, it just want what is historically, biblically and legally Jewish land given to us by the UN, the European and American powers of the day and G-d too. That makes quite a concrete claim. So why are you, iVaN the Hater, not going nuts over Iran-Hezbollah, Qatar, Hamas, Turkey, Russia, etc.? I know the answer and so do you – it is in your name, iVaN the Hater.

            The Arabs rejected partition AND the original Mandate included ALL of present Israel AND Jordan.

            If the Arabs reject peace and then 70 years later figure that they had a good deal offered to them back in the 1940’s, then it is their evil and stupidity and antisemitism to blame, not Israel’s ability to move on and create a great country for itself and its 1 million Arab inhabitants.

      Let the Iranians pile equipment and money into the bottomless pit known as the Middle East. Just make sure that the armaments, bombs, drones, electronics and hardware never make it anywhere near Israel.

      Eventually Russia and Iran will have a HUGE disagreement…two ideologically evil empires will not work together for too long when push comes to shove.

      Both Iran and Russia will eventually be broke and this Syria venture will be unsupportable – especially if there is a targeted war against their positions and installations and top brass.

      Iran and Russia now hold their own people hostage to their imperialist-ideological goals of invading, occupying and trying to conquer their neighbors. It is not a winning formula for domestic success and Israel and USA needs to keep the pressure on the invaders.

      The Kurds need to be heavily equipped so they get their state which they deserve 100% more than the Terrorstinians deserve another fake Arab state for a fake people.

      Not a good idea to affect his election. Better to deal with the one you know. How ever he is an expansionist, and clearly stated that Iran is Russia’s ally. He is also allied with NOKO.
      The key is to destroy NOKO, to keep their hydrogen bombs and missiles from Iran.
      Better to attack Iran’s, Iraq’s, Afgani’s, and Hezbollah’s forces with Putin remaining at the helm. Only Russia can do something to control them. If Russia actively aids them, they will have to face the US.

    What’s with all the superstitious woo woo being preached all over the comments here? This site was intended to host discussions based on analysis of demonstrable, readily verifiable facts and purported info from government intelligence sources, not fairy tale prophecies which are so vague that literally any sequence of global events whatsoever will be said to have fulfilled them (or will be said to be in the process of fulfilling them).

    You want to talk about Biblical prophecy? The Bible very clearly says that the sky is covered by a glass dome and behind that dome is an ocean of blue water; so why aren’t the Bible thumpers here mystified every time someone launches a rocket into low Earth orbit? How come no one here mentions how the Biblical name for the Ashkenazis is based on a spelling mistake? It was supposed to be Ashkhoozi, but the Greek-speaking Jews who wrote the Bible in Hellenist times misread a couple of letters.

    The Bible also says that Noah and his sons successfully crammed 2 of every land species on Earth into a relatively small wooden barge (by today’s standards) built and staffed by something like a dozen men and their wives, and fed and cared for all these animals. Guys, a ship like that wouldn’t even hold all the different land species you could find in Bolivia, let alone Australia or the world at large, and there’s no way a dozen men would be able to shovel away all the megatons of poop, never mind feeding these things.

    So yeah, with all due respect, if you guys want to discuss utterly implausible conjecture based on the magical stories your grandparents and bearded or pointy-hatted leaders taught you, why not go do that on a site specifically intended for that purpose?

      I’m just wondering if you’d be as willing to bash and mock those who, being motivated precisely by what you call “fairy tales”, were saving little Jewish lives from the flames of the Holocaust? Real human lives, I say, nothing less. How much Common Sense would you see in THEIR actions and attitudes? “With all due respect”, you say? Well, there’s surely nothing resembling hypocrisy here.

        Oh? So you’re saying that people didn’t save Jewish lives based on the fact that saving innocent vulnerable human beings is the right thing to do, they only did it because a magical invisible being in the sky commanded them? What do they say about non-Jewish minorities who were and continue to be victimized around the world- lesser priority, maybe?

        And what do you suppose we should say about those who oppressed, murdered and hunted Jews and others to extermination based on the exact same legends and myths that you invoke as justification for their salvation? Support for Israel is great if it’s based on universal human rights and Israel’s posture compared to other regional powers, but if the only support they get is from people who think some humans are more equal than others, it will ultimately turn into a Jewish Taliban state and even American Christians won’t be welcomed there for long.

          Attitudes harden, ‘Common Sense’, right? To begin with, motivation is a complex multifaceted phenomenon, isn’t it, and in a given set of circumstances some particular aspect can rise above all the others and tip the scale and prompt action. You can be naturally struck with fear and cower at one moment, but then think of Christ and his sacrificial love and thrust yourself into action no matter what at the next.

          Now, in your convoluted mind you basically do nothing but revile those who had a choice back then in WWII and who decided to act and saved lives of their fellow humans having been taught by the Bible to truly love one’s neighbor. You go as far as to suggest that what they did was a mistake actually, and the kids that did remain alive thanks to their actions should have died rather! I’m amazed at how callous you are, man, and I assure you you’d get a good dressing-down from your own fellow Jews now in their 80’s and 90’s who lived with those righteous persons and who now testify of their lives and characters molded and influenced, and perfected by the Word of God.

          And believe me, you know nothing about what the children and grandchildren of those righteous people are doing in Africa, in India, in a host of other countries throughout the world nowadays for all the categories of those poor and deprived that you take pains to mention in your diatribe.

            I never said there was anything wrong with saving innocent lives, that’s always a good thing regardless of the reasons. However, if you need to feel divinely compelled in order to save lives when you already have the means, and you can’t recognize that whatever is taking those lives will ultimately seek to take yours too, then you need to rethink your morals. America entered WW2 because Japan and Germany declared war on it, not because of what was happening in Auschwitz.

            Using the Bible or any other belief system as justification for saving lives is good. Using it as justification for starting wars or disenfranchising an ethnic group or snatching their land and resources, or for treating human beings of different racial and religious backgrounds by different standards, is simply not beneficial to the human species.

        How’d those prayers work out for you during the holocaust? Cause, the entirety of my family was wiped out there.
        Yes, he’s mocking you, yes you’re offended. Yes, he’s got a good point. This is an intel sharing website, with some apparent access to intel that often doesn’t make the mainstream news, and is remarkably often correct. Hence, some of us come here to try and discuss current affairs.
        Also, its a destination for paid trolls, but, everyone needs to make a living, and scum like that are also ‘gods children’ as you’d call them and have a place in our world.
        Either way. he’s right, the religious diatribes add nothing to these discussions and are just background noise. Take it where its welcome please.

          Do you point to the Holocaust to disprove God’s existence? You mean, had there been no Holocaust you’d be an ardent lover of God and follower of His Messiah today? Come on, search your heart and see it for what it is. You only mock yourself, I’m sorry I have to make it clear to you.

            Nothing can disprove God’s existence. You also can’t disprove Buddha or Vishnu or even Yoda. You can’t logically prove a negative, plain and simple. What Sigh’s family experience does prove, however, is that praying to the traditional Jewish God does not in any way guarantee that you or your people will be spared from mass extermination and inhuman cruelty on an industrial scale. Arguably, it exacerbated the problem by promoting complacency amongst the Jewish people, as well as making it exceedingly easy for the Nazis to identify and round them up.

            ‘Common Sense’, you don’t know me, do you, and it’s only logical and what should be expected. But you do know there were and are absolutely bright minds in this world – a fact you won’t be able to deny no matter how much you’d like to have your way here – who don’t see ANY problem in why and how the world is run by the God of Israel, why we have all this mess here now, where it is headed and what its FINAL state is going to be. Think of I. Newton for a moment, just for one, whose Bible theology exceeds 2 000 000 words. Will you call him a fool? The one about whom the world has this to say:

            “Isaac Newton… who by a strength of mind almost divine, and mathematical principles peculiarly his own, explored the course and figures of the planets, the paths of comets, the tides of the sea, the dissimilarities in rays of light, and, what no other scholar has previously imagined, the properties of the colours thus produced. Diligent, sagacious and faithful, in his expositions of nature, antiquity AND THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, he vindicated by his philosophy THE MAJESTY OF GOD mighty and good, and EXPRESSED THE SIMPLICITY OF THE GOSPEL IN HIS MANNERS. Mortals rejoice that there has existed such and SO GREAT AN ORNAMENT OF THE HUMAN RACE”.

            Do you know what Einstein said about the man? Lagrange? Lomonosov? And host of others… Now, will you pronounce your judgment and call the man ‘stupid’?? Do you seriously believe that, on hearing your childish spoilers on Noah’s ark etc. Newton and his likes would just be taken aback, shake their heads and… dump their beliefs? Come on, you sure get it all.

            Please try to understand this: if there is anything you don’t understand or cannot figure out, or connect all the dots, it in no wise means that there is no one in the world who might have the answer. You’re right in one thing, though: this is not a good platform to discuss serious questions in all their depth. Also, I could not agree with you more on this one:

            “Using it [the Bible] as justification for starting wars or disenfranchising an ethnic group or snatching their land and resources, or for treating human beings of different racial and religious backgrounds by different standards, is simply not beneficial to the human species.”

            Where did I say that people who believe in the Bible are stupid? I called iVaN stupid because he’s an insecure antisemitic simpleton, for the rest I merely pointed out that the Bible is a terrible source for prophecy and accurate observation of the real world. Brilliant people are just as capable as anyone else of believing in absurdities and falsehoods, they just come up with much more detailed excuses.

            If Isaac Newton were around today, there’s no doubt he would either accept the modern scientific paradigm in which any talk of the supernatural is considered baseless unsupported speculation, or he’d be stressing out for the rest of his life trying to reconcile his ancient superstitions with modern scientific fact. In Newton’s time there was little known about light (although astronomical methods did obtain a reasonably accurate estimate of its speed), he wouldn’t have known anything about light from distant galaxies taking billions of years to reach us. They also had next to no understanding of genetics, evolution, inheritance and natural selection, and no fossils to back it up. Since virtually no one (including the leaders) actually read more than a few cherry-picked segments of their Bibles, very few people were finding and pointing out all the fallacies and contradictions, and they’d usually be arrested or executed when they did (see Galileo, for one particularly famous example).

            See normally it’s guys like you accusing scientists and seculars of appealing to authority, but here you’re trying to use the exact same tactic- “So and so is smarter than you, and they believe in the Sacred Beaver, so you should believe in it too.” I would argue that Einstein wasn’t very religious at all (at least not in the traditional sense), but even if he was, it would be just as irrelevant as his failed attempts to debunk modern quantum mechanics with its probabilistic/multiverse description of reality. Going back to Newton’s case, he was a deeply religious man who spent more time studying the supernatural than he spent on the natural. Why do you suppose we only remember him for things like calculus and the theory of gravity?

            I’m not intending to insult anyone’s intelligence here (except for the antisemites with their blood libels). I’m simply tired of seeing people coming here, intelligent or otherwise, calling for innocent blood based on vague, ancient superstitious prophecies that can be fulfilled by a million different scenarios. You need to learn to take criticism of your beliefs in stride instead of feeling personally insulted, just like you implicitly criticize everyone who believes in something different whenever you preach.

            You’ve never had an in-depth study of Newton’s theology, have you, so please tell me how on earth you consider yourself able to predict what would become of his faith in God if he lived today?? How at all can you be sure that what you cite as ‘reasons’ for him to renege on his beliefs in the modern world would not rather enable him with his mind unparalleled in terms of efficiency to view those same facts as an even greater proof of the Creator’s unsearchable wisdom? Mark this: what Newton could see today would simply boost his faith as he’d be in a way more favorable position to CONNECT ALL THE DOTS! Please accept this fact: from what you wrote and from HOW you wrote it one can see a sure proof you’re completely ignorant both of the man’s life and his thinking, and you’d do well to fill the gap in your perception of the one of the greatest men that ever lived if you spend time and energy on acquainting yourself with his works.

            Let me give you just one idea for you to think about and contemplate seriously. Newton wrote extensively, proving to his generation that it was unwarranted and even ridiculous to look for the return of Christ BEFORE the Jews are first RESTORED TO THEIR NATIVE LAND after centuries upon centuries of dispersion, persecution, humiliation, etc, and have a coherent state there. Do you know how much emphasis he puts on the prophesies that speak of the restoration of Israel’s fortunes in the Last Days and how he yearned for it to happen? Now, apply your Common Sense and try to imagine Newton seeing the living embodiment of his dreams, all founded on his profound knowledge of God’s Word which he’d been studying all his life and, yes, on the multiple prophesies it contains, and Israel having its place back among the nations as if from “nowhere” and “all of a sudden”! And not in some backwater part of the world but PRECISELY where it had ever been since the Almighty chose to place His redeemed people in the land of Canaan: “Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it” (Psa. 80:8).

            None other but you, the Jews, are the greatest proof of all that God does exist and that He is one, and just everything in the Universe goes according to His Purpose and will be accomplished at the time appointed by Him.

            Show me another precedent or example in history where a whole nation would be (1) violently uprooted from its land, (2) fanned throughout the whole world under heaven but (3) not left alone there but (4) persecuted and harassed and murdered through millennia to the point of (5) becoming as good as dead, and yet …. (6) restored to the place where it exactly had been before the catastrophe overtook them, and (7) become a mighty nation? Ez. 37, yeah? No? Nothing of a prophecy? Just a fairy-tale? Newton? Others of his mind? You? And Ez. 37 is just one of the dozens that send shivers down one’s spine when read against the background of what is known as the history of the world.

            Shall we now talk about some pertinent highly specific prophesies? Yes? No? Why?

And since then they have been testifying and insisting that it was through His intervention that they were saved? What if the difference is in ourselves, i.e. how we view God, what we think of Him, what place we give Him in our lives and so on and so forth? Ever contemplated these vital questions?

          GOD’S FLEAS
          October 13, 2008

          Friends,
          Corrie ten Boom wrote her amazing autobiographical story, The Hiding Place, about her experiences hiding Jews in Nazi-occupied Holland and subsequent punishment in various concentration camps. At the concentration camp, Ravensbruck, Corrie is talking with her very ill sister, Betsie, who reminds her of the verse which says “in every thing give thanks.” (1 Thess. 5:18) They begin to thank God for the things they are thankful for such as still being together. At that time, they are in a place that is entirely infested with fleas which are biting them. Betsie reminds Corrie that the passage says to give God thanks for all things, not just pleasant things. With that, Betsie thanks God for the fleas.
          What we come to find out later is that the fleas are, in fact, a blessing. The ladies in this particular building are left undisturbed by the guards because the guards will not enter into the building with the fleas. In this environment, the ladies are able to hold Bible classes and strengthen the other women around them who were in the pits of despair undisturbed by their Nazi persecutors.
          How many times do we pick and choose which things to thank God about based on our perception on whether or not God’s gift to us is thankworthy or not? Do we thank God when we get the cold as well as when we recover from it? Do we thank God when we are hungry as well as before we eat? In this present economic environment, do we thank God for our losses as well as our gains? Do we thank God for the fleas? ……

        How do you figure that The Holocaust is comparable to Terrorstinians in Gaza and Judea-Samaria, who are quite well off and with a life expectancy 5 years longer than other Arabs and with an army of NGO’s, a billion dollar per year UN branch devoted to their needs (and supporting their terror and propaganda) and a population which as grown from 200k to 3 million counting all the Arabs signing up as “Palestinians” to get in on the great deal they get from Israel and the world?

      Your excellency, only show where it says about the glass and the blue water and i will believe.,

      In the beginning Elohim created hashomayim

      (the heavens, Himel) and haaretz (the earth). |2| And the earth was tohu

      vavohu (without form, and void); and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Ruach Elohim was hovering
      upon the face of the waters. |3| And Elohim said, Let there be light: and there was light [Tehillim 33:6,9].

      |4| And Elohim saw the light, that it was tov (good); and Elohim divided the ohr (light) from the choshech (darkness). |5|
      And Elohim called the light Yom (Day), and the darkness He called Lailah (Night). And the erev (evening) and the boker
      (morning) were Yom Echad (Day One, the First Day, Mk 16:2). |6| And Elohim said, Let there be a raki’a (expanse, dome,
      firmament) in the midst of the mayim (waters), and let it divide the mayim from the mayim.

      |7| And Elohim made the raki’a, and divided the waters under the raki’a from the waters which were above the raki’a; and it
      was so. |8| And Elohim called the raki’a Shomayim (Heaven). And the erev and the boker were Yom Sheni (Day Two, the
      Second Day)..

        Here, stupid. Here’s 60 verses talking about Earth being a flat disc covered by a solid dome: http://reflectionofmind.org/60-bible-verses-describing-flat-earth-inside-dome/ , and there’s plenty more just on that subject alone, if you feel like digging for info and actually reading your own Bible from cover to cover instead of cherry-picking. You love quoting from your sacred scriptures, which only came to you via a man-made publishing house, so here’s some more scripture for you:

        Genesis 1:7- “And God made the firmament, and divided the waters under the firmament, from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so.”
        Job 37:18- “Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass?”
        Revelation 6:13- “And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.”
        Psalms 104:5- “He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved.”

        Before you tell me it’s all just a metaphor, note that this is the precise cosmological model adopted by all the primitive bronze-age tribes and civilizations of the Middle East at the time, it’s not only the Bible which paints this picture. Furthermore, if the Bible is only a metaphor, then every single chapter and verse can be interpreted however you like and should only be taken with a grain of salt at best.

        If the literal Biblical description of the universe were accurate, why are we seeing light coming to us from distant galaxies billions of light-years away? Moses had no telescope, why would God need to accelerate the light just so scientists could see it thousands of years later and conclude that the Bible is completely fake? Why’d he go planting dinosaur bones all over the planet with exotic DNA traces and isotope ratios indicating millions of years of aging? Why did he erase all geographic traces of a global-sized flood? Never mind, these are questions for inquisitive minds; you can just go back to your Jew-hating now, since it’s the simplest and most convenient means for you to explain away all your personal failures and inadequacies.

        By the way, I just noticed that you yourself quoted Genesis 1:7 where it specifically describes a flat Earth covered by a solid dome in the sky. Shows that you don’t even bother reading your own words, too busy foaming at the mouth waiting for a couple of Jewish people to die somewhere. Go look up what raki’a means.

      While I agree with you that we should discuss verifiable facts, non the less it should’nt be overlooked that aspects in the Bible would appear to be very accurate when applied to this present situation. However on one point only of your statement of two of every species in a boat incidently 450 foot long I would agree, it’s impossible but for the fact that the Bible doesn’t say that. Crucially it states two of every animal “in it’s kind”. That being said by example rather than two of every species of dog, all that’s was required would be a pair of wolves to fulfill the, “In it’s kind” direction. This is the critical piece of information your missing and in doing so you believe a lie.

        Sorry, but you’re plain and simply wrong. There are now estimated to be 6.5 million different land-based species presently living on Earth. Part of the modern definition of species is that inter-breeding between different species to create viable reproducing offspring is virtually impossible. There is simply no means whatsoever of reconciling the literal Noah’s Ark tale with plain and obvious scientific fact, end of story. They didn’t know about Koalas when they wrote the Bible, nor did they apparently have a very good account of the local florae and faunae closer to home.

        It doesn’t make sense in any case that an infinitely powerful being has to start all over with all life on the planet, he could have just snapped his fingers and gone for a quick fix. And if he just simply had to do it the hard way, it would have been far more plausible for him to erect a giant dome over Noah and have a whole bunch of animals and plants showing up over the subsequent weeks, not having the man build a big creaky wooden boat which would rip apart from torque if it were made too long. Speaking of domes, the dome covering Earth is mentioned once again in Noah’s tale, specifically “God” opens a window in the dome and lets a whole bunch of water flood through to the surface, then he vacuums it all back up into the sky at the end. As we now know from direct observation, there’s nowhere near enough water in the atmosphere to flood the entire Earth’s surface, and no sign whatsoever that anything like that ever happened in the last 100 million+ years (just local tales of flooding oceans, lakes and rivers, one of which came from the Mesopotamians and likely morphed into the Noah story).

        So yeah, what’s with all the people taking away other people’s rights based solely on unsubstantiated superstition?

          BTW by land-based species, I’m not counting bacteria or other micro-organisms, only kingdom animalia. I’m specifically counting stuff that needed to be on the ark to survive. Of course in nearly all those cases, we need a pair, there’s only a few animals on the planet known to be capable of asexual reproduction or self-cloning.

          Hi again Common Sense. Again while I agree today we have 6.5 million species today, this is not equvalent to or the same as “In it’s kind” Two of each in it’s kind equates to around 1600 total animals. The marsupial you reference unlike the Panda is one of the 21 orders of Metatheria and as far as Noah is concerned from the Cladogram branches (not an evolutary tree) only two were required but from the upper branches.

          Common Sense In addition again you make claims about the (boat) Ark when by contrast the Bible explains it quite specifically.

          First God is quite clear on the size of the Ark in both length width and height. Each dimension is given in cubits, each cubit being about 18 inches in length, If you do the calculation then find the dimensions of a modern ocean going work boat of equivalent length such as used in the oil industry you will find the length width and height within a meter of the original Arks dimensions. On the vessel I work on we can lift 300 tonnes, have in addition two 250 tonne deck cranes and can lift from a depth of 3000 meters depth, we house 120 men working around the clock, with a gym, canteen, hospital and have enough fuel weight to travel half way around the world. Granted in welded steel. When by contrast God’s suggestion was Gopher wood more in line with a reed like construction using pitch and tar for waterproofing one of the strongest materials weight for mass still used for hot air balloon baskets rather than your keel and plank assumption that wont work at these lengths due to flexing as you pointed out .

          As for the water required to flood the Earth you also make the assumption that the Earth was the same before the flood as it was after when from a Bible perspective it wasn’t. The flood came from the breaking of the “Fountains of the Deep” by contrast only in addition did it also rain for 30 day and 30 nights.

            Did you even seriously think about the points you’re trying to make here? Do you really think you can take your oil tanker, modern equipment and all, and host enough animals to represent the entire genome of Australia? You probably couldn’t even manage the full genome of Alaska. You’re not going to get 6.5 million distinct species with their own unique genetic traits and reproductive mechanisms from breeding 1600 animals for 5000 years or even 10 000.

            Sure, with regards to geology you can say that the water content of the Earth was different in Noah’s time. You can also say that the sky was a glass dome with lights draped across its surface, then God changed his mind when Copernicus and Galileo came along. You’re only missing one thing in this case: evidence. If you work in the oil industry, why don’t you go ask the engineers if they conduct their surveys based on the Biblical view of the world, or if their methods involve assuming the Earth is hundreds of millions or billions of years old.

            Even ancient Greek mathematicians knew that the Earth was round- in fact, they had a remarkably accurate estimate of its size based on measuring surface curvature. They also knew that the solar system looked much more orderly if you assume the sun is at the centre (or extremely close). Funny how Jews, Christians and Muslims didn’t seem to know about any of that until the Renaissance…

            Common Sense, this bible verse in Genesis says the earth is round:

            The Bible indicates that the earth is round. Consider Isaiah 40:22 which mentions the “circle of the earth.” This description is certainly fitting—particularly when the earth is viewed from space; the earth always appears as a circle since it is round.

            Another verse that indicates the spherical nature of our planet is Job 26:10. This verse teaches that God has inscribed a circle on the surface of the waters at the boundary of light and darkness. This boundary between light and darkness (day and night) is called the “terminator” since the light stops or “terminates” there. Someone standing on the terminator would be experiencing either a sunrise or a sunset; they are going from day to night or from night to day. The terminator is always a circle, because the earth is round.

            One of the great delights of observing the moon through a small telescope is to look at its terminator, especially during the first or third quarter phases when the terminator is directly down the middle of the moon. The craters are most easily seen at this boundary since the sun is at a low angle and casts very long shadows there. The moon looks particularly three-dimensional when viewed through a telescope during these phases; it is clear that the moon is a sphere—not a flat disk (see photo below).

            Hi Sue, both of your passages refer very clearly to circles, but I don’t see nothin’ talking about spheres there.

            To me it looks like you’ve just cited yet another two passages referring to a flat, disc-shaped Earth (the “raki’a” mentioned in Genesis, which iVaN hilariously referred to without any clue what he was actually exposing).

            Job 26:10 as quoted by you is particularly revealing. It only refers to one specific circle, not a multitude of such circles as seen by people at different points of Earth, and describes the edge as a boundary between light and darkness, as if outer space/the big glass wall suddenly begins right at the edge. In reality, the horizon isn’t dark during the daytime, it’s just as dark 200 miles overhead as it is 200 miles off towards the horizon, so it looks and smells an awful lot like Flat Earth Theory to me.

            If nothing else, you must admit that my interpretation of scripture is far simpler, more direct, and requires far fewer assumptions in order to justify the interpretation as compared to yours. Plus my version is consistent with what it says pretty much everywhere else in the Bible. Took European Christians almost 2000 years to rediscover what ancient Greek mathematicians and scientists had already known for so long, and then the Vatican took another 500 years to catch up after that- I don’t think it’s because they weren’t reading scripture properly.

            So once again I ask, what’s with all the hatred, ethnic tension and war drumming based on unsubstantiated legends and myths? You’ll get your apocalypse in a few decades when you finish choking the planet with CO2, why do we need to be stirring up more man-made catastrophes now when all kinds of crazy nutheads have nukes and itchy trigger fingers?

      In the chant of Balaam at Numbers, 24:20, Amalek was called the ‘first of the nations’,

      20. When he saw Amalek, he took up his parable and said, “Amalek was the first of the nations, and his fate shall be everlasting destruction.”

      Amos – Chapter 6

      1. Woe to those who are at ease in Zion and to those who are secure in the mountain of Samaria, those called the | first of the nations | , and the house of Israel has come to them. א.
      2. Proceed to Calneh and see, and go from there to the great Hamath, and go down to Gath of the Philistines-are they better than these kingdoms, or is their border greater than your border? ב.
      3. You, who bring yourselves closer to the day of evil, and you bring near the dwelling amidst violence.

      Tehillim – Psalms – Chapter 97

      1. The Lord has reigned, the earth will exult; many islands will rejoice.
      The Lord has reigned: when He takes the kingdom from Amalek and from his descendants.
      the earth will exult: This is what Ezekiel said (35:14): “When the whole earth rejoices, I shall make you desolate.” He prophesied this concerning Amalek.

      2. Cloud and thick darkness are around Him; righteousness and judgment are the foundation of His throne.

      3. Fire will go before Him and will burn His enemies all around.
      Fire will go before Him: in the war of Gog and Magog, for it is written concerning his war (Ezek. 38:22): “And I shall plead against him with pestilence and with blood, and rain bringing floods and great hailstones, fire and brimstone.”

      4. His lightnings illuminated the world; the earth saw and quaked.
      His lightnings: His brilliant lights, an expression of (Ezek. 21:15): “It is polished that it may glitter.”
      and quaked: “Surely there will be a great earthquake on that day in the land of Israel. And at My presence, the fishes of the sea… will quake.” [The word] is an expression of (above 48: 7): “pangs like [those of] a woman in confinement.”

      5. Mountains melted like wax from before the Lord, from before the Master of all the earth.
      melted like wax: as it is written (Ezek. 38:20): “and the mountains will be thrown down, and the cliffs will fall.”

      Now, join Me In A Prayer For G-ds warrior VLaDiMiR V PuTiN

      Heavenly Father

      Blessed be Your holy name and Your holy messiah.

      We are gathered together on this thread to offer up our thanks for the life of your holy warrior, Russian president, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, messiah of Russia and the Russian church. We humbly beseech You, Lord, may he know the peace of Your glorious Messiah, clarity of vision, to know and to submit to Your divine ineffable will and to liberate the earth from the forces of Amalek.

      Amen, brothers.

    People of Israel: your politicians are taking you to a major war for Saudis. Don’t you see that Iranians are there to fight ISIS and not Israel. The drone story is total fabrication. Your politicians are getting paid for this. Ask your prime minister why he orders bombing forces who fight extremist muslims. Iran knows it is not a match for Israel. They don’t want war. Even if they could then USA would never let them to harm Israel. Iran has an ideologic regime and strongly believes that has to wait for Mahdi and avoid any war(OK, you can laugh it). Most Iranians love Israel and Iranian arm forces respect IDFs. Don’t fight for Saudis. Don’t become second in line after ISIS that Saudi use to destroy Iran. You are better than this. Shalom

      Hello to Iran, from a western Jew. Fighting really sucks, hope it ends ASAP. I know Israeli leaders often use inflammatory rhetoric and unnecessarily offend a lot of people in the region, but it seems based on what I read even in Iran’s own media that Iran’s leaders are doing the very same thing. I guess we should both hope it’s only for domestic consumption and no one really wants to spark a war.

      I hope you can understand that there are plenty of legitimate grievances the Syrian people have with Mr. Assad and his regime, and, whether you agree or disagree with their viewpoint and methods, it’s simply not plausible to label them all as terrorists even if many of them truly are. Also despite your generous assessments of IDF strength, you should know that Jews and most westerners take your own nation’s capabilities very seriously. We may not be shaking in our beds at night waiting for imminent annihilation, but we do perceive there to be some very serious and credible threats coming from Iran’s leadership, and we don’t feel like we can afford to let the threat grow too large right next to Israel’s doorstep.

      Again, I think we both hope there will not end up being any sort of war between Israel and Iran, but perhaps it will depend on what some of the other powers in the region wish to see. Have a great day!

            You seem to be very mistaken. Most Jews are semites, even the European ones- this is demonstrated both by the historical records and the latest in genetic testing. If you want invaders to leave the lands of the semites, you ought to perhaps start with all those descended from Saudis, Turks, Iraqis, North Africans, Egyptians, Persians, Romans, Crusaders, Greeks, Armenians, Mongols, and also migrants from Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. Or you can accept that stuff happens, wars happen, and even if you could change the past, it wouldn’t fix your personal inadequacies and make you into a relevant human being.

            Hamas is a creation of the Muslim Brotherhood which originated in Egypt, and Israel was merely complacent in allowing them to take root. ISIS was cultivated by Assad and his intelligence forces and given free reign in eastern Syria to attack American forces when they occupied Iraq (most likely you were cheering them on at the time, until they started turning their guns on you instead).

        @ Common Sense.

        Motti, you don’t really believe any of the pollyannish stupidity you spew, but you unfortunately allow your unresolved childhood issues to cloud your intellect.

        And come now, oh “western Jew” , let’s face facts. You profess not to believe in anything the Torah – the basis for all civilization and progress in the world on many different levels – has to say, disparagingly referring to it as “fairy tales”. Well, Jews have absolutely no claim on Eretz Yisroel whatsoever sans the Torah. In fact, the only response we have to the accusations of “listim atem” which we face daily (many of them from the “enlightened” western leaders who share your dim view of religion) is that Hashem gave it to our forefathers Avrohom, Yitzchok and Yaakov. Motti, you know better than this. Do genuine teshuvah before it’s too late, and daven that you are zocheh to partake of the geulah sheleimah, may it come speedily.

          Hey if I throw around a bunch of Yiddish gibberish, does that make me more Jewish just like you? Let’s see… Chutzpa, schmalz, mensch, weinerschnitzel… Ya ok I’m an authentic Jew now.

          The Torah requires that you stone children to death for lesser things than what I’m doing here, how’s that working out for you? My claim to Israel is that my ancestors lived there, they were ethnically cleansed by the Romans and sent to Europe, never given the right of return by any of the thieves who subsequently came and took the land for themselves over the centuries, Palestinians were barely using any of it by late 19th century, Europe no longer safe, so my cousins are now back where they belong and extending me the offer to join them any time I want.

          If your claim to a piece of land and the right to occupy and oppress people already living there is based on bronze age fairy tales, you’re seriously screwed.

    Just having a good laugh at that so-called “special force”.
    Take a good look at their feet. They’re all out of step.
    If they can’t master such a simple, fundamental military manuever as marching in step, what does that say for the rest of their training?
    Sure, it doesn’t take a lot of training and esprit-de-corps to pull a trigger, but I’d have no worries if this “unit” went up against the mighty IDF or US Marines.
    It feels good to be on the winning side.

      Why doesn’t Jesus just write his name clearly in the sky, so there’s absolutely no doubt that he’s real, and then he can separate the legitimate skeptics from the “Satanists” without all the fuss and nuclear war?

      BTW I don’t personally want the US and Russia to go to war. That’s why the US should sanction every single Russian with so much as a penny to their name and cut them off from all viable ties to the west, until they fall flat on their faces and either make peace with the world or run out of cash to make war.

          The people of Lebanon kicked the land-grabber scum out of their country completely.

          And right now, at this very minute, ISISrael’s proxy army–which it defends with F16s that get BLOWN OUT OF THE SYRIAN SKY–is being smoked out of Syria by an alliance of Russia, China, Iraq, Lebanon, and Iran.

          We’re watching the masterplan–Occupy and Exterminate the Arabs–turning into a smelly, 71 year old corpse.

          Right before our eyes.

            Sounds like overhyped professional wrestling commentary to me. Israel never claimed Lebanese territory and never included it on any maps, except for the disputed Sheba Farms which of course they still hold. They had no choice but to leave South Lebanon in 2000, because the UN security council specifically demanded it, and again in 2006 they were forced to accept a ceasefire. The Lebanese border has never been this quiet since the 1960’s, and while it will most likely flare up sooner or later, I don’t expect that it will be Israel who runs to the UN begging for yet another ceasefire and yet another frozen conflict.

            Yes, Syria shot down an F-16, whoopeedeedoo. No reasonable person ever said those planes were invincible, nor even the F-35. What matters is that Israel has hundreds of such planes, whereas Syria only has so many missile batteries, planes and airbases of its own, and Russia’s ability to hold Israel back is similarly limited. But don’t believe me, just wait for the next load of bombs to fall as usual, and you’ll be here talking trash as always to make yourself feel like you’re part of an accomplished civilization and therefore somehow relevant to the human race.

    Iran’s leaders have stated publicly many times they wish to destroy Israel.
    Iran funds (and controls) terrorist organization like chamas and hizballa that shoot thousands of rockets on Israeli civilians. So, no matter how nice you write, the truth about your country is self evident. Especially sticking out is the name of some of the Iranian military (call them militia if you prefer) units. Like the “capture the Golan” unit. Hmm…. I wonder what their goal is?

    What a lot of BS ; Once upon a time, 14 billion years ago ,a creator created the world we know; Jews chose to have a special relationship with such creator and built laws and ordenances based on that relationship, to live by whilst they journey on the face of the earth . Having lived and reproduced thereafter to be recycled . Every attempt to copy this template has failed so far causing much damage . One day, man will realise that life is for living , once and no more , and getr on with it

    I think Putin says to Iran and Syria: ” Go ahead, makes as much war with Israel as you want, i am not gonna stop you, i might even provide you with weapons and systems, but i am not gonna fight Israel myself.” It is fair enough. Fighting Israel is dangerous, and it may start WW3, he knows that. Let the countries have a fair fight over it, some get support from US, and some from other parties. May the best man win ! So I don’t think Putin is dishonorable or very dangerous as such at all !
