Prophetic Showdown?: Netanyahu Tells World Leaders Israel Will Make Its ‘Own Decisions’ Responding To Iran

Breanna Claussen

As the nations of the world actively seek to temper Israel’s response to Sunday’s large-scale drone and missile attack by Iran, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made clear that the Jewish State will make their “own decisions” in defense of their country.

Shortly following meetings with British and German Foreign Ministers, the Israeli leader on Wednesday stressed that foreign powers would not make the decision surrounding Israel’s next steps in dealing with the Iranian regime.

“I thank our friends for their support in defending Israel, and I say support in words and deeds,” Netanyahu stated. “They [world leaders] have also all types of suggestions and advice. I appreciate it, but I want to make clear that we will make our own decisions, and the State of Israel will do all that is needed to defend itself.”

Early Sunday morning Israel-time, the Iranian regime commenced an attack on Israel, which included over three hundred suicide drones, ballistic missiles, and cruise missiles fired from Iran soil. 99% of the airborne projectiles were intercepted prior to reaching the Jewish State, with the US, UK, France, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia also taking part in shooting down the weapons.

At an annual army parade speech on Wednesday, Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi warned that the “slightest action” by Israel in retaliation will be “met with a severe, extensive and painful response.”

Iran asserted that their attack was conducted in retaliation for an alleged Israeli airstrike on their consulate in Syria in which twelve individuals were killed, including an IRGC general reportedly involved in the “planning and execution” of Hamas’ brutal massacre of Israelis on October 7th.

Since the beginning of the war, Israel has vowed to target and eliminate all terrorists involved in the massacre, no matter their current location. Many have attributed the Iranian regime as responsible for the murderous rampage—which their terror proxy, Hamas, carried out. The most recent country to lambast Iran’s involvement was Saudi Arabia, who insisted earlier this week that Iran strategically timed October 7th to thwart their normalization with Israel.

Sunday’s attack by Iran was the first incident in which Tehran has targeted Israel from its soil, which is usually done by way of its proxies—Hamas, Hezbollah, Houthis, and other terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria.

Prior to Iran’s attempted “blitz,” Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz warned the regime that “If Iran attacks from its territory, Israel will react and attack in Iran.”

On Sunday, Israeli President Isaac Herzog called the Iranian attack a “declaration of war” and said that Israel is “considering all options.”

The United States, the European Union, and others have announced plans to sanction Iran, which The Globe and Mail highlighted is “seen as aimed at mollifying Israel and persuading it to rein in its retaliation.”

Erick Stakelbeck, the host of “Stakelbeck Tonight” on Wednesday, asked Amir Tsarfati, Founder and President of Behold Israel, if he sees “any prophetic implications in the showdown right now between Israel and Iran.”

“Absolutely,” Tsarfati responded.

“As much as we would love to see the Ayatollah being toppled and have a much greater regime for the Iranian people—which, by the way, are people whom we love very much—the Bible is telling us that the war with Iran is far from being over,” he explained.

“In fact, whether it is going to be defeated by Israel now or call it even, Iran will eventually join a coalition against Israel led by Russia. Lo and behold, we see already that Russia is siding with Iran, Turkey is siding with Iran, and they’re preparing their proxies in Libya and Sudan as well. These are exactly the countries that Ezekiel prophesied as the coalition that is going to come against Israel.”

“The Middle East is all about interests, intrigues, and ‘my enemy’s enemy is my friend.’ Israel must be very ready for this Alliance, but you know, we’ll never be ready enough for an alliance of giants like Russia, Iran, and Turkey together,” he stressed.

Stakelbeck further emphasized, “The Book of Ezekiel chapters 38-39 talks about God’s Divine hand, and it doesn’t end too well for that Ezekiel Invasion force.”

According to Tsarfati, many Israelis have recognized the unlikely probability that 99% of Iran’s projectiles on Sunday were intercepted, attributing it to “divine intervention.”

“If we’re seeing divine intervention already,” he stated, “you can imagine how the Israelis are going to be amazed when God shakes the Earth and throws things from the skies on the enemies of [the Jewish State] and defeats them on the mountains of Israel.”

“There’s a great Exodus of Jewish people from secularism, hedonism, and materialism,” he described. “We’re at the point where only He can help us. God has always been there for us, and He always wanted us to be at the point where we call for His help and not rely on our own strength. ‘Some trust in horses, some in chariots, but we shall call upon the name of the Lord,’ as Psalm 20 says.”
