Israel wants to start an arms race with China

*** The Israeli regime is openly preparing for the possibility of war with China. Israel was created artificially after World War II, and is now a small, struggling state out in the desert of the Middle East. It seems laughable that Israel should have aspirations as a military superpower, with the ability to fight wars against the world's most powerful nations. But according to Jewish scriptures in the Old Testament of the Bible, which are believed by Christians and Jews including many world leaders today, Israel will need to fight and defeat other nations before Judgement Day, in a war that will destroy much of the planet. In the prophecy, Israel wins the war and ends up ruling the world (see below). Israel will "feed on the wealth of nations", with God's help, and deal with "the nations that have come against Jerusalem". God promises Israel: "I will beckon to the Gentiles [non-Jews], I will lift up my banner to the peoples ... They will bow down before you with their faces to the ground; they will lick the dust at your feet." Israel has already amassed a vast stockpile of nuclear missiles, and is a close ally of the USA. ***

Israel must prepare for space warfare

Israel will be facing a possible threat to its vital space-based assets within the coming decade for which it has to start preparing immediately, Israel Air Force chief Maj.-Gen. Eliezer Shkedy told the second Ilan Ramon Annual International Space Conference in Herzliya Wednesday.

His comments came in light of China's destruction on January 11 of one of its own satellites, an act that has sparked concern among the world's leading space powers that potential enemies may target their space-based assets in a version of Star Wars not heard of since the Reagan administration at the height of the Cold War.

Although China has officially denied any military or political motivation for its act two weeks ago, a point reaffirmed Wednesday to the Post by the Chinese military attache in Israel, the US and India have, since the Chinese incident, made remarks about the need to protect their civilian and military [dual-use] space assets.

Addressing the conference, which was held under the auspices of the Fisher Brothers Institute for Air and Space Strategic Studies in Herzliya, and the Science, Sports and Culture Ministry, Shkedy said: "The advantage of information and intelligence in a time of war is paramount to victory. Operational capabilities, command and control, as well as application of force are increasingly connected to space-based assets. It is hard to imagine fighting a war without these assets. Israel will develop its capabilities in space in the coming years as the connection between the military and space is growing. The Americans, Indians and Chinese are all investing huge sums of money in space."

From a purely operational perspective, Shkedy added, Israel needed to become fully autonomous in its space industry and develop its own capabilities. While not relating to China's motivations for destroying its satellite in the fashion that it did, Shkedy said the message "cannot be ignored."

"Battle in space is on our agenda, whether we want it there or not. We need to understand how we develop and protect our space assets at the relevant time. Within five to 10 years this will sadly be very relevant. There may be those who would seek to harm our forces in space, as they would our forces on land and at sea. We could face this reality in a high-intensity conflict in the future," Shkedy said.

Last year, at the first Ilan Ramon Conference, Shkedy announced a change in the official name of the Israel Air Force, to the Israel Air and Space Command. Israel Aircraft Industries recently changed its name to the Israel Aerospace Industries.

Defense Minister Amir Peretz, who was not at the conference but sent a statement to delegates, said Israel had to be ready for "present and future threats" from unfriendly nations harming its space assets, "as we saw was possible by the Chinese example."

"Israel needs to make sure that it is not cut off from its space assets during a time of conflict," Peretz said.

Maj.-Gen. [res] Prof. Chaim Eshed, head of the Space Program Department of the Defense Ministry, says that while the surveillance aspect of the global satellite industry is at five percent, Israel's situation is much different, with a much larger percentage of Israel's space-based assets focused on high-resolution surveillance and other defense-related surveillance functions.

Gen.[res] Prof. Itzhak Ben-Israel, head of the Israel Space Agency, said satellites are integral to the direction of smart munitions, such as the Joint Direct Attack Munitions [JDAM], or bunker-busting guided missiles, of which, as first reported in The Jerusalem Post this week, Israel has just purchased $100 million worth.

    "Then all who survive [after the final war, Judgement Day, the end of the world] of the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year by year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts," (Zechariah 14:15).

    "And the house of Israel will possess the nations as menservants and maidservants in the Lord's land." (Isaiah 14:2)

    "... foreigners will work your fields and vineyards. ... You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast. " (Isaiah 61:4)

    "See, I will beckon to the Gentiles [non-Jews], I will lift up my banner to the peoples ... They will bow down before you with their faces to the ground; they will lick the dust at your feet." (Isaiah 49:22-23)

    "All kings will bow down to him and all nations will serve him." (Psalms 72:11) [Jews believe that "him" refers to their own Messiah who has not yet come, although Christians claim it means Jesus.]

If you not believe in the Jewish or Christian scriptures, you should be aware that many important people strongly do, including leading members of the current US regime, Israeli regime, and British regime. You are encouraged to look-up the above references yourself for more information and to improve your understanding of the context.  Different translations of the Bible vary slightly, and we reccomend comparing as a few different versions. The NRSV Bible is probably the most recent and easily accessible translation.
