article imageOp-Ed: The pre-war buildup reflects past Mideast conflicts

“The next 50 days are the most fateful Since Yom Kippur War,” said Hanegbi. Russia starkly warns Israel and the U.S. not to attack Iran. And analysis of the pre-Mideast war buildup reflects the 1967 Six Day War.
From Israel National News: We now stand, in my opinion, before the 50 most fateful days in Israel's history, since perhaps the Yom Kippur War, in which there were also several dozen fateful days," said the former Head of Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Tzachi Hanegbi, at a closed meeting of Likud activists in Yafo.
From National Post News: Russia has starkly warned Israel and the United States against attacking Iran, saying Moscow sees no evidence that Tehran’s nuclear program is aimed at developing weapons, the Interfax news agency reported recently. “We warn those who are no strangers to military solutions that this would be harmful, literally disastrous for regional stability,” according to Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov. An attack on Iran “would set off deep shocks in the security and economic spheres that would reverberate far beyond the boundaries of the Middle East region,” said Ryabkov.
Today, the Mideast reflects the buildup before the 1967 Six Day War. Back then, analysts worldwide followed the events everyday on the news and it was apparent the war was about to begin. No military strategists or tacticians gave Israel a chance for survival because the Arab armies were larger and they appeared more capable of victory. Analysts could see the war coming and they were all talking about it. Analysts saw the Egyptian army massing in the Sinai. However, within six days the Egyptian army was destroyed and retreating back to Egypt. Many reporters can remember those days like it was last week. That was how the war concluded 45 years ago and the tension now parallels then.
This coming conflict will be massive, disastrous, and apocalyptic. While Israel and the U.S. will emerge victorious, both countries will be significantly damaged by the loss of life during this war. Many Israelis will be killed during the war, while many Americans will be killed due to acts of terrorism. The result of this Mideast conflict will trigger worldwide anti-Jewish and Christian persecution by many Muslims and secularists because they will blame Christian Zionists and Jews for terrorism attacks and the global economic collapse resulting from this conflict. Additionally, this conflict will force the US to diminish its presence in the Mideast, while Russia will establish stronger relationships with the Mideast Islamic nations.
