20,000 Heat-Seeking Missiles Reportedly Feared Missing From Libyan Warehouse (Fox News) While you were sleeping, a waking nightmare began. “Matching up a terrorist with a shoulder-fired missile, that’s our worst nightmare,” Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., told ABCNews.com. One of the inevitable effects of deposing Gaddafi in Libya was the loosing of multiple thousands of weapons from his arsenal. These weapons are now finding their way into terrorist hands throughout the Middle East. This even includes Hamas in Gaza as reported by DEBKAfile: Egypt uncovers Libyan SA-24 anti-air missiles and sea mines bound for Gaza.
The missiles, (link to ABC Nightline video), four to six-feet long and Russian-made, can weigh just 55 pounds with launcher. They lock on to the heat generated by the engines of aircraft, can be fired from a vehicle or from a combatant’s shoulder, and are accurate and deadly at a range of more than two miles.
Meanwhile, back in the Arab Spring, an ominous warning was just issued by the Military leader of the rebels in Tripoli, Libya. Libya’s Islamist groups “will not allow” secular politicians to exclude or marginalise them in the intensifying battle for power in the post-Gaddafi era, the country’s most powerful Islamist leader has said. Abdel Hakim Belhaj, head of the Tripoli Military Council and founder of a jihadi group that was later disbanded, appears to be firing a shot across the bows of liberal, western-backed rivals after negotiations over broadening the rebel administration foundered. Libyan Islamists must have share in power, warns leader.
Naturally, with this ominous development, you would expect the Obama Administration to be all over it. But what is the big warning coming out of the State Department this week? Israel is building 1,100 new homes in their Capital and the US calls it: “counterproductive” and “deeply disappointing.” Yes, that is much more disturbing than 20,000 shoulder fired missiles on the loose. Those “impudent” Israeli’s are trying to build more homes in Jerusalem! Why won’t they do what the Obama Administration demands? Pray courage for Prime Minister Netanyahu to withstand the pressure.
Therefore, shall we trust God or shall we fear? It is our choice. The Bible is full of wonderful promises of His protection. We must pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all of God’s people who love the truth. We know that the truth is a person, Yeshua ben Yehovah; Jesus, Son of God. Here is one of my favorite promise passages.
Yehovah is my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid? Yehovah is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident. The one thing I ask of Yehovah—the thing I seek most—is to live in the house of Yehovah all the days of my life, delighting in Yehovah’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock. Psalm 27:1-5 NLT
