Just going by the papers, it’s been a busy couple of months for the Mossad, the Israeli spy agency. Saudi Arabia nabbed a vulture wearing a transmitter from Tel Aviv University, hard evidence not of avian research but of a “Zionist plot.”
The mangled body of an elderly German woman washed up off an Egyptian resort bearing bite marks from a shark. But whose shark? “What is being said about the Mossad throwing the deadly shark in to hit tourism in Egypt is not out of the question,” the South Sinai governor was quoted as saying.
“But it needs time to confirm.” The half-baked always does.
No one was laughing, however, at the report in Sunday’s New York Times, a 2,800-word assessment of Israeli involvement in Stuxnet, the computer worm that wreaked havoc with Iran’s nuclear program, sending centrifuges into wild gyrations that brought down perhaps 1,000 of the contraptions whose spinning enriches uranium that Israel fears will end up in atomic weapons that would be pointed its way.
The newspaper said Israel, in cooperation with Washington, tested the worm on the exact same centrifuge model, known as P-1, that Israeli intelligence had set up at its own Dimona nuclear facility in the Negev Desert in the country’s south.
“It’s good that the Iranians think we have these capabilities,” a senior Israeli intelligence official told TIME, taking care not to confirm the specific deployment of capabilities that Israel is widely known to, in fact, possess.
The Jewish state has a robust high-tech research industry, a private sector nourished on the financial side by global venture capital and on the far more important human side by a stream of veterans of elite units of the Israel Defense Forces.
The units are devoted to computer science and warfare, and bear dashingly nerdy names like 8200 and 8153, the latter known simply as Eight One to members of the other government security bodies it brings together in joint operations.

No one’s going to have Israel’s back, but Jesus Christ. Countries surrounding them, with headline acts as Iran being in the front of it, are always going to try and sink hooks in any way they can to try and bring God’s chosen nation down.
With accusations such as the Mossad throwing a shark off an Egyptian resort resulting in the death of an elderly German woman, borders on insane. Or that Saudi Arabia captured a vulture wearing a transmitter, confirming it was a “Zionist plot.” To what end will countries stop trying to accuse Israel of the most mundane acts is beside me.
Next act up: Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who says Stuxnet, the computer worm which reeked havoc with Iranian’s nuclear program. For the sake of argument, let’s say President Ahmadinejad was right. Doesn’t Israel have a right to defend themselves against the countries that want to see them wiped out?
Are nations like America so blind that they are willing to placate Ahmadinejad, and let him go ahead with his goal of obtaining nuclear weapons?
Because of this, and for so many reasons, Israel has time and time again have had to stand on their own two feet, with few if any nations helping them. But we Christians Believers of Jesus Christ know that Our God is Israel’s protector, and our King’s promise is eternal.
Ezekiel 38 verse 17-23
“This is what the Sovereign LORD says: You are the one I spoke of in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel.
At that time they prophesied for years that I would bring you against them. This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD. In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.
The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence.
The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign LORD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed;
I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD.”
