Massive naval buildup in Persian Gulf as Israel moves closer to war.
Western powers and several of their Middle East allies have deployed an enormous naval fleet to the Persian Gulf just days after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu again suggested that his country may soon launch a preemptive strike against Iran's nuclear facilities.
The fleet includes ships from 25 nations, include three full US carrier groups, each one with a complement of more aircraft than the entire Iranian air force.
What is Ahmadinejad and Khamenei hatred for America and Israel about?
Western culture is the greatest enemy of the Iranian regime, and for that reason they hate the West’s leader – the United States, and the country they perceive as its agent in the Middle East, Israel.
This is why they refer to the former as “Great Satan” and to us (Israel) as “Little Satan.” The US is not hated in Iran because of Israel’s conduct. The opposite is true: Israel is the target of Iranian hatred because it represents American culture. Full article written by Isaac Ben-Israel of Y-Net news can be viewed here: Y-Net
September 25th quotes by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in the US for the UN General Assembly, may hint at just one of those reasons for such hatred. In an exclusive interview with CNN's Piers Morgan, the president took a swipe at what he said was the West's lenient attitude toward homosexuality, which is forbidden by Iran's theocratic regime.
"Let me ask you this," Ahmadinejad said. "Do you believe that anyone is giving birth through homosexuality? Homosexuality ceases procreation."
"If a group recognizes an ugly behavior or ugly deed as legitimate, you must not expect other countries or other groups to give it the same recognition," he concluded.
As the Nations of the World gather in hatred of Israel, the word of God has the following promises for Israel. There is an appointed time in History when the following scriptures will be fulfilled.
Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob...
Is. 45:17 "But Israel will be saved by the LORD with an everlasting salvation; you will never be put to shame or disgraced, to ages everlasting."
Is. 59:20 "The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins," declares the LORD."
Jer. 31:1 "At that time," declares the LORD, "I will be the God of all the clans of Israel, and they will be my people."
When will “at that time” be? All signs point to Yom Kippur, year unknown.
Yom Kippur the second of three fall feasts begins September 25, 2012 at sundown. Of the three fall feasts that are yet to be totally fulfilled by Yeshua (Jesus); the second one is what is considered by the Jews to be the most holy of feast days.
It is the most Holy day because it is the one day of the year that the High Priest enters the Holy of Holies to make atonement for the nation of Israel. It is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.
Kippur is a Hebrew word that comes from the primitive root word which means to “cover”. The word carries with it the sense of being covered because of a sacrifice. Jesus as He hung on the cross became our kapparah.

Sound the Alarm!!!
"Blow you the trumpet in Zion,
and sound an alarm in my holy mountain:
let all the inhabitants of the land tremble:
for the day of the LORD comes,
for it is near at hand" Joel 2:1
