Turkey with Wrench In Hand

It appears a "last-ditch" effort to stave off of the use of military force in the near future is under way by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bibi today put forth a demand that the cycle by which enriched uranium is funneled back to Iran, according to Obama's proposal, be slowed. This is to delay even longer Iran's ability to complete production of a nuclear bomb. Netanyahu's demand was rejected outright by Obama who said no additional amendments would be added to the negotiated arrangement. Of course, Iran has complete rejected the entire proposal. This means Netanyahu has been left to pursue the matter in a different direction, namely the establishment of some sort of negotiations with the Syrians that will somehow keep a second front from developing should Israel decide to strike Iran's nuclear sites.

But, the day after French President Nicolas Sarkozy said his country was ready to facilitate a resumption of talks between Syria and Israel, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that although Israel no longer trusts Turkey to mediate the talks, Damascus would not accept Paris's role. "On this issue (of mediation), Israel's stance is that it doesn't trust us," Erdogan told a press conference in Rome. "Former Israeli prime minister Olmert trusted Turkey, but [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu doesn't trust us. That's his choice," he said, according to a Reuters translation. "Now France is trying to take up the role we had," Erdogan added. "I'm not sure what kind of stance [Syrian President] Bashar Assad will take, but from what I've heard from him, they're not going to accept something like this."

Don't look for Netanyahu to sit back and wring his hands. He will continue to hotly pursue any "OUT" that might appear, anything that will allow him to delay bombing Iran's facilities. In all probability, positive appearing moments will arise over the next few days. However, I think any hope of settling this threat has long since passed Israel by.
Read tomorrow's blog as I do a "walk-thru" of Isaiah 17 to demonstrate how the chapter can only be talking about the times in which we are living. Keep looking up, but while you do, pray for the peace of Jerusalem. (Throw in some fervent prayer for both Jews and Muslims. Jesus is revealing himself.)
