Does Isaiah predict Syria’s imminent destruction?

Exclusive: Joel Richardson examines scripture to determine if Israel will nuke neighbor

For those sensationalists who are predisposed to believe that Israel is about to hit Damascus with a nuclear bomb, the question must be asked: How wise would it be to drop a nuclear bomb on a city that lies less than 50 miles from your own border? The city of Damascus is only: 60 miles from Safed, 90 miles from Haifa, 133 miles from Tel Aviv, 135 miles from Jerusalem. The following map shows the region that would be adversely affected by the radiation fallout if Israel were to “nuke” Damascus:

Does Isaiah predict Syria’s imminent destruction?

Joal’s fallout chart is completely wrong. Fallout flows east from the source. While a small amount will go west, the vast majority will go east due to the rotation of the earth – jet stream flow. Take a look at these nuclear fallout pattern images from Google.

Is Israel led by complete idots?

If you are surrounded by people that want to wipe you out, then why wouldn’t you design bombs that would be more appropriate for your situation? Don’t you think Israel has thought about nuking Damascus? Bombs that focus heavily on neutron production and have a smaller blast might work. They will wipe out the people and cause some physical destruction, but not create a lot of fallout. Also, Israel would surely have thought of tactical neutron bombs for use in the West Bank.

Finally, who else on the planet would think to wipe out Damascus?

Joel’s reference to “glory of Jacob will fade” is completely wrong. Did anybody say anything about a sparse population in Israel? If Israel nukes its neighbors, then it is likely that UN economic sanctions similar to those affecting Iran today will be applied to Israel. Economically, Israel will take a big hit.

Israeli Scenarios of Attack on Iran

As U.S. officials and military analysts express fear that Israel will launch an attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities, an NBC report outlines the possible scenario of that and potential retaliatory strikes from the Islamic republic.

Experts believe that an Israeli attack would take the form of a multifaceted assault involving missiles, warplanes, drones, and special operations forces, according to the NBC report.

In turn, Iran could be expected to retaliate with its Shahab 3 missiles, targeting major Israeli cities, NBC reports.

Report Outlines Scenario of Israeli Attack, Iranian Retaliation

Ahmed Rashid, writing in Haaretz, outlines what he sees as a highly likely response in the Muslim world to an Israeli, or American, strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities. It’s a worst-case scenario, but nevertheless a plausible one (h/t Hussein Ibish). Rashid says the locus of rage would be in Shia communities, but Sunnis might also erupt, as well. By the way, if someone has a compelling counter-argument, please send it along. Rashid:

Such widespread and angry protests could make it almost impossible for Americans or Israelis to travel, work or do business across the Arab world and the Indian subcontinent….

International – Jeffrey Goldberg – An Iran-Strike Worst-Case Scenario – The Atlantic

Scenario 5 — The Israeli Air Force bombs the major Iranian nuclear sites using low yield nukes but claims that only conventional weapons were used. Deaths from the destruction of the nuclear sites, including the fully fueled nuclear power plant, run into the millions. Nuclear fallout spreads throughout the Middle East and SW/SE Asia and eventually over the Northern Hemisphere. Iran responds with a full MAD (mutually assured destruction) counter-force attack. Iranian missiles with radiological warheads, chemical warheads, advanced conventional warheads (fuel air explosive warheads with yields in the tactical nuke range), and some conventional warheads. Syrian missiles, equipped with similar warheads, also fly towards Israel.

The Hezbollah missile force, which is controlled by Iranian and Syrian officers, cuts loose with everything it has.

… Total numbers killed in the target nations run into several hundred million.

Doomsday Preppers Survey

Methodological Notes:
The Doomsday Preppers Survey was conducted by Kelton Research between January 3rd and January 10th, 2012 using an email invitation and an online survey. Quotas are set to ensure reliable and accurate representation of the total U.S. population ages 18 and over.

Results of any sample are subject to sampling variation. The magnitude of the variation is measurableand is affected by the number of interviews and the level of the percentages expressing the results.

In this particular study, the chances are 97 in 100 that a survey result does not vary, plus or minus, bymore than 3.1 percentage points from the result that would be obtained if interviews had been conductedwith all persons in the universe represented by the sample.

What Does the Ayatollah Want? | JR Nyquist | FINANCIAL SENSE

… According to Kahlili, Ahmadinejad “believes that many of the signs of the Madhi’s return have emerged. Known as Hadiths, these signs include the invasion of Afghanistan, the bloodshed in Iraq, and the global economic meltdown.”

Islamic prophecy says chaos and war, famine and mass death will set the stage for the appearance of the Mahdi. What could such a prophecy signify, if not the aftermath of a nuclear war? “People like Ahmadinejad so completely believe that these conditions would hasten the return of the twelfth Imam [Madhi], that they were willing to foment universal war, chaos, and famine to bring it about.”

What Does the Ayatollah Want? | JR Nyquist | FINANCIAL SENSE

So Iran wants to hasten the return of the Mahdi by generating choas through miilions of deaths. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is in spiritual contact with the Mahdi who directs him to continue their nuclear program at all cost. The nuclear program will specifically hasten the return of the Mahdi, says the spiritual Mahdi.

How?

By continuing their nuclear program at all cost, Iran will almost certainly invite attack from Israel. At that point Iranian proxies – Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas – will be called up for action. The resulting massive attack on Israel will be aimed at the complete and total destruction of Israel. That means nobody is playing around. Syria’s full chemical arsenal will be used immediately from time zero – the start of the war. Not to mention hundreds of other missiles coming in from all directions. That is day one of the war.

Day two sees us monitoring nuclear fallout from what is left of Israel’s neighbors. All of Israel’s neighbors now cease to exist. This war will be henceforth known as The One Day War.

A couple of weeks later, Russian and Chinese leaders have a little meeting to discuss events in the Middle East. The west (Israel) attacked Iran for no apparent reason, then ended up obliterating millions of Arabs in the process. It certainly looks like the west crossed the line in the sand as drawn by Moscow. Moscow warned the west that interference in Iran or north Africa will bring on catastrophe far and wide. China has also threatened nuclear war over Iran. Now the west has interfered in both Iran and north Africa, and it has brought on millions of deaths in the process. The west didn’t cross the line. It ran as fast as it could and jumped as far over the line as possible.

At this point we get to see if Russia and China are bluffing about nuclear retaliation. However, any nuclear attack would not be immediate. They need time to prepare. They will most certainly target spring in order to avoid winter. If an attack comes, it will be sudden for no apparent reason. It will catch everybody (not you) off guard. Perhaps it would be prudent for you to plan for the worst and hope for the best.

On this website I am going to try to figure out precisely to the day when such an attack might take place. Not sure if I can do it, but I’m going to try. My Doomsday Calendar gives my best estimate at this time – Monday, May 6, 2013. Mondays in May have the highest probability for attack.

If America, Russia and China are taken out of the world equation, then that leaves Europe in charge. Now Iran only has to focus on Europe in order to facilitate the return of the Mahdi. If Iran can obliterate Europe, then that positions Islamic countries for a leading rolling in world affairs. Now the Mahdi can finally emerge to lead the world, minus a few billion people.

If America is obliterated in 2013 or 2014, then I would estimate that Europe will meet its demise around 2025. The emergence of the Mahdi occurs by 2030. Then we get to meet the Mahdi’s new buddy – Islamic Jesus. Finally, we all get to convert to Islam, take a mark in Arabic script (looks like 666) that says “In the Name of Allah” or die.

I’m getting depressed.

 

 

 

Vendors caught price gouging for potassium iodide pills as citizens panic over nuclear fallout fear

But this preparedness has caused a massive increase in demand for iodine supplements, which has left most manufacturers and vendors completely out of stock. And many of those that still have stocks have jacked up their prices by massive amounts. Some vendors, for instance, are now selling what would otherwise be a $5-10 box of potassium iodide tablets for over $400 (http://www.amazon.com/iOSAT-Potassi…).

What many people don’t realize, however, is that the iodine found in these expensive, and now out-of-stock, iodine supplements is the same iodine that you can naturally find in many foods. Iodine-rich sea vegetables like kombu and kelp that cost just a few dollars contain very high levels of natural iodine. According to a 2006 review in the Vegetarian Journal, a single 1/10-inch sheet of kombu seaweed contains 150 mg of iodine. And less than a 1/4 teaspoon of kelp contains 150 mg of iodine (http://www.vrg.org/journal/vj2006is…).

Russians Rush for Iodine Pills – WSJ.com

In Russia’s Far East near Japan, residents bought up pills to ward off radioactive isotopes, and military units prepared to evacuate towns on concerns of nuclear fallout, even as the government insisted that radiation levels in Russia remain at safe levels.

The country’s flagship airline, OAO Aeroflot, said it would check incoming aircraft from Tokyo for radiation at its hub in Moscow. Meanwhile, Russia’s nuclear chief complained to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin that his atomic experts, including a veteran of the Chernobyl disaster 25 years ago, haven’t been permitted to enter Japan.

US vulnerable and unprepared for nuclear attack

Given this potential, the review concludes that the US appears to be inadequately prepared. During the Cold War, for example, it was standard for the military to require that equipment be “hardened” to survive the Electromagnet Pulse EMP) produced by a nuclear explosion. However, today the US has far less hardened electronics, and ironically, tends to be more reliant upon these electronic systems than ever before.

Also, the level of infrastructure has decreased. Fallout shelters, for example, used to be fairly commonly found in public areas, and now far fewer of these are operational. Certainly not as many people have bomb shelters in their back yards, or stockpiles of food, and medicines such as Potassium-Iodide, which can protect against thyroid cancer resulting from exposure to nuclear fallout.

Nuclear fallout could poison food supply

In a potential nuclear conflict, fallout could contaminate fisheries and poison food supplies, according to formerly classified British military documents.

Although the threat of global nuclear warfare has declined since the end of the Cold War, there is no reason, said science historians, that a regional conflict between countries such as India and Pakistan might not have similar effects.

Iran Has Started a Mideast Arms Race

Over the next 10 to 20 years many countries all over the world will possess nuclear weapons thanks to countries like Pakistan, Iran and North Korea.

From the article:

Make no mistake: The Middle East may be on the verge of a nuclear arms race triggered by the inability of the West to stop Iran’s quest for a bomb. Since Tehran’s nuclear ambitions hit the headlines five years ago, 25 countries — 10 of them in the greater Middle East — have announced plans to build nuclear power plants for the first time.

Tehran, meanwhile, is playing an active part in proliferation. So far, Syria and Sudan have shown interest in its nuclear technology, setting up joint scientific committees with Iran, according to the official Islamic Republic News Agency. Iranian media reports say Tehran is also setting up joint programs with a number of anti-U.S. regimes in Latin America, notably Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Ecuador, bringing proliferation to America’s backyard.
