Israel Steps Up Its Preparedness

May 31, 2009
JERUSALEM -- Israel began its biggest civil defense drill in the country's history.

The five-day drill, which will include a 90-second siren sounded across the entire nation on Tuesday morning, began Sunday.

The exercise will involve various governmental offices, local authorities, security and rescue teams, the Israeli education establishment and other public and private institutions, according to the IDF Spokesman's Office.

The exercise is aimed at improving Israel's national preparedness by exercising the coordinated operation of its emergency response institutions during emergencies. The exercise will examine the simultaneous functioning of the various institutions in order to highlight possible areas for improvement.

The drill, taking place for the third year in a row and code-named Turning Point 3, will be the most extensive ever held in Israel. The question is why? What does Israeli officials see coming?

Israel has lived with the need for preparedness since it burst into existence on May 14, 1948. It has functioned in a heightened state of alert since it was born. So what gives? While the Obama administration plays politics with the Supreme Court, those who seek the destruction of the West continue to look outward for ways of accomplishing their goals. While Obama cuts the anti missile defense budget by one third, Iran test fires their latest version of an intercontinental missile.

Could it be that Benjamin Netanyahu has finally given up hope that America will do anything other than pressure it to back down and give up land? Is he seeing the hand writing on the wall? Israel is alone. How many more weeks will pass before Netanyahu sends an armada of F-16 Lightning fighters to put a stop to Iran's nuclear progress? And finally, if this is the course that Netanyahu takes, what will Iran's biggest ally will Russia respond?

The answer to that question is written. Check it out in Ezekiel 38 and 39.
