A Revelation received by Pastor Dirk this morning – 24th April 2018
Bible Prophecy is being fulfilled in front of our Eyes, and no one is Noticing.
God’s countdown to the Battle of Armageddon has started and no one is listening.
Revelation 12 and 13 is coming into fulfillment since 2017 and the fulfillment of Bible Prophecy are continuing into 2018
The Date of the 23rd is standing out everywhere!
On the 23rd of September 2017, Revelation 12 kicked off with the Star constellation off Venus in Position like it was described in Rev 12.
Rev 12:1 – 2 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
On the 23rd of October 2017. The EU Europe Union announced their Joined Army. The EU Combined Army. In Bible Prophecy the EU with Germany at the Lead is described as The Leopard with the 7 Heads and 10 Horns.
This a fulfilment of
Rev 12:3 – 4 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
On the 23rd of December 2017. The Women with the 12 Stars received her Eagle Wings.
Rev 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
The Women with The 12 Stars is an emblem for Israel = Israel and her 12 Tribes. The Eagle wings are the Emblem for the United States of America in the Bible.
We read of the Eagle Wings twice in the Bible prophecy. In Daniel 7v4
Dan 7:4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
The Lion in Bible Prophecy has always been UK England; in this verse we see the Date and The day of the Independence of USA from England. On July 4th = 7:4. The Eagle Wings broke off from the Lion.
USA Detached by independence from UK on this Day.
On the 23rd of December 2017 President Trump from America will stand with Israel by declaring Jerusalem the Capital of Israel.
Here the Women received her Eagle Wings
On the 23rd of April 2018. The US State of California Voted 50 – 18. To Ban all Christian Books, Including the Bible and make the Biblical sin of Sexual and Homosexuality null and void. Meaning any Book , Gospel Radio, Pastor in a Church , Counselor or anybody that speak out against Sexual Immorality or Homosexuality can face the wrath of the law.
California is Mystery Babylon the Bible speaks about, but it is also the Feet of the Bear of the End Times Revelation 13 Beast.
Rev 13:1 – 2 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
California (Mystery Babylon) arose from the Sea of Sin when they voted to legalize Sexual Immorality and Homosexuality in their soon to CALEXIT from America Republic. The Feat of the Bear of the End Time Beast is standing firmly in the Sea of Sin.
The Next entities that will adopt this law will be the Europe Union betrayed in Bible Prophecy as the Leopard with the 7 Heads and 10 Horns, and Then UK England always the Lion in Bible Prophecy. England will become the Spokesperson of the Sexual and Homosexual Beast of Revelation 13 = The Mouth of a Lion.

Israeli minister tells EU to go to “thousand hells”
Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz on Wednesday told the European Union that it can go to “a thousand thousand hells,” Israeli media are reporting.
The reason is EU’s call to investigate Israel police’s brutality against Israeli Arabs.
On Tuesday, the EU condemned Israeli police’s clash with demonstrators in Haifa, who protested against the high death toll among Palestinians along the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel.
“Let them go to a thousand thousand hells. The EU is now sucking up to Iran and will help (them) against US sanction,” Steinitz, who two weeks ago praised his country’s ties with the EU, told a local radio, also describing the organization as hypocritical. END

Another Bible Prophecy fulfillment on the 23rd of May 2018,
2Th 2:3 ~ 6 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
How will the Christian Zionist Movement take control of Israel and Push their Jewish Messiah onto Israel ?
Well with a Political Party where people can vote for them. but this is not possible . well not until yesterday that was .
Yesterday the 23rd of May 2018 , the 1st Ever Christian Zionist Party Registered in Israel Political scene/ Knesset called “The Biblical bloc”.
Avi Lipkin, a well-known lecturer who has spoken in over 1,000 churches, announced that he has formed the first joint Jewish-Christian party and intends to lead it in the next Knesset elections. A closer look at his motives reveals that this may be the wave of the future.
“The Biblical bloc protects everyone who believes in the Bible and opposes the ethnic cleansing of Jews and Christians from the Land of Israel. The Biblical bloc represents parties all over the world who espouse Judeo-Christian, democratic Western culture.”
“The party will also work to strengthen Israel by formulating a program to improve public relations around the world by recruiting Jewish and Christian speakers and training them to improve Israel’s image in the world and protect Western democracy.”
The essence of his party is much more simple.
“Christianity has its share of hatred for Jews but we have our share of hatred for Christians,” Lipkin told Breaking Israel News. “We have to stop hating the Christians. We have to become like Ruth and Naomi. In my lecture tours, I have seen that many Christians are ready for this.”
In a candid interview with Breaking Israel News, Lipkin explained how this vision of a renewed relationship between Jews and Christians makes sense in Israeli politics. He sees the Christian demographic rapidly becoming a major factor which, shockingly, currently has no representation in the Knesset.
“For hundreds of years, the only Christians in Israel were Arab,” Lipkin explained. “This changed twenty years ago when one million people made Aliyah to Israel, mostly from the former Soviet Union. Fully one third were not Jewish.”
“Eight percent of the population in Israel today is Christian but they have no representation in the Knesset,” he said. “Until recently, the Arab Christians who used to be anti-Semitic aligned with the Muslims. In the face of growing Islamic extremism, these Christian Arabs are slowly realizing they need to change and slowly, they are turning to Israel and the Jews.”
What Happened on the 23rd of June 2018?
3 THINGS HAPPENED ON THE 23RD OF JUNE 2018
1. KUSHNER MEET NETANYAHU FOR A SECOND TIME
2. GOG ATTACKS CLOSER TO THE NORTHERN BORDER OF ISRAEL
3. The Christian Zionists Jewish Messiah says too the Palestinian People via National TV, He is not sure President Abbas has the ability to, or is willing to, lean into finishing a peace deal.
The Christian Zionists Movement of USA candidate for the Jewish Messiah had a 2nd and Final meeting on Peace Plan with Israel!
23 rd of June 2018 .
KUSHNER MEET NETANYAHU FOR A SECOND TIME.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Saturday night for the second day in a row with US negotiators Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt, even as the Palestinian Authority continues to boycott the team and characterize them as “spokespeople for the Israeli occupation” intent on normalizing “Israeli apartheid.”
The two senior US officials arrived in Israel late on Thursday on the final leg of a five-country Mideast tour that began in Jordan on Tuesday, and included Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Qatar. They met for four hours with Netanyahu on Friday afternoon, joined in their talks by US Ambassador David Friedman, and Israel Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer.
Following Friday’s meeting, the Prime Minister’s Office issued a statement saying the discussions centered on the diplomatic process with the Palestinians, regional developments and the security and humanitarian situation in Gaza.
The Kushner and Greenblatt tour of the region comes as the Trump administration is considering if, when and how to roll-out a blueprint for a peace process which the Palestinians – because the US decisions to move its capital to Jerusalem and recognize the city as Israel’s capital – have already rejected.
The US Embassy put out a statement after the meeting very similar to statements issued by the White House following Kushner and Greenblatt’s meetings in each of the other countries they have visited on this trip.
Kushner and Greenblatt, the statement read, “Discussed the means by which the humanitarian situation in Gaza can be alleviated, while maintaining Israel’s security. They further discussed the continued commitment of the Trump administration and Israel to advance peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.”
Even as the Palestinian Authority was boycotting the US delegation, their spokespeople were saying that if the US wanted to broker a peace deal, the address was the PA.
PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh was quoted Saturday by WAFA, the Palestinian Authority’s news agency, as saying, “The right address for achieving a just and lasting peace that cannot be bypassed, neither regionally nor internationally, is the Palestinian decision-maker represented by President Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian leadership supported by the legitimate international community and the Arabs, who made this clear to the American delegation.
“What is required after the end of the US delegation’s tours to the region is for the American administration to understand the need to stop pursuing imaginary political alternatives and projects aimed at splitting the Palestinian homeland to prevent the establishment of our Palestinian state,” Rudeineh said.
Last week he said that US efforts to drum up support in the Gulf states for infrastructure projects costing hundreds of millions of dollars for Gaza was an effort to “separate Gaza from the West bank under the tile of humanitarian aid to Gaza.”
This charge was rejected by Greenblatt in a Twitter post, saying, “Hamas and the PA, who have been fighting one another for over a decade, are each cynically claiming that the US is trying to divide Gaza and the West Bank, instead of acknowledging that we are trying to help the Palestinians in Gaza. What hypocrisy.”
Veteran Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, meanwhile, told the Voice of Palestine on Saturday that the projects for Gaza – done outside the aegis of UNRWA, which he said the US wants to terminate by proposing direct aid to countries hosting Palestinian refugees – “is actually aimed at liquidating the issue of the Palestinian refugees.”
Erekat, according to WAFA, said Netanyahu told Kushner and Greenblatt that Israel was ready to use money it collects at its ports for PA tax and customs revenue to provide for Gaza’s needs.
“The goal behind this is to sustain the [Hamas] coup and keep Gaza separated from the West Bank on the way to creating a mini-state in Gaza while bringing down the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank,” Erekat said.
Erekat, in an interview with the Middle East Eye published on Friday, said that Americans had become “nothing else than spokespeople for the Israeli occupation” whose intention was to “normalize Israeli apartheid.”
Earlier this month Greenblatt – often the target of Erekat’s tirades – responded in an op-ed column in The Washington Post, saying it was time the Palestinian were served by leaders other than Erekat, who he said has for the last 40 years voiced the same talking points and failed to deliver “anything close” to what the Palestinians want.
“Dr. Erekat – we have heard your voice for decades and it has not achieved anything close to Palestinian aspirations or anything close to a comprehensive peace agreement,” he wrote.
“Other Palestinian perspectives might help us finally achieve a comprehensive peace agreement where Palestinian and Israeli lives can be better. The time for leadership and responsibility is now. The time for meeting after meeting of government officials repeating the same talking points is over. The Palestinian people want real action, and they need honest, realistic and decisive solutions.”
Erekat, according to WAFA on Saturday, said that Greenblatt advocated changing the Palestinian political system and overthrowing the regime of Abbas.
“In order to target the leadership, the US administration starts by creating a state of destabilization and confusion in the West Bank and at the same time works on undercutting international consensus” on the Palestine issue, he charged.
WAFA reported that Erekat and Palestinian intelligence chief Majed Faraj held talks in Amman on Friday with Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi and Jordanian intelligence head Adnan al-Jundi that concentrated on the results of meetings Jordanian King Abdullah II had with Netanyahu on Monday, and Kushner and Greenblatt on Tuesday.
Abdullah is scheduled to meet US President Donald Trump on Monday in Washington.
The king began a tour of Washington on Friday calling on the Trump administration, in the final stages of preparing its Middle East peace plan, to commit to the establishment of a Palestinian state in east Jerusalem.
Abdullah met with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and National Security Adviser John Bolton, according to Jordanian officials.
The king’s meeting with Pompeo “covered efforts to move the peace process forward,” according to the embassy. “King Abdullah stressed the importance of stepping up efforts to relaunch serious and effective Palestinian-Israeli negotiations based on the two-state solution, leading to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on Palestinian national soil, with east Jerusalem as its capital.”
According to local media reports, Jordanian officials have grown concerned that the Trump administration’s peace plan may spark outrage in the region.
GOG IS GETTING CLOSER= Russian jets strike rebel held town in Syria BORDERING ISRAEL
AMMAN (Reuters) – Russian jets struck an opposition held town in southwest Syria on Sunday, opposition sources said, in the first air cover provided by Moscow to an expanding Syrian army offensive to recapture the strategic area bordering Jordan and the Israeli occupied Golan Heights.
Two tracking centres that monitor military aircraft movements recorded at least twenty strikes on Busra al Harir, northeast of Deraa, a city in Syria, two sources told Reuters.
“We have tracked a sortie of 5 Russian jets that performed 25 raids,” said one source saying the war jets had set off from Russia’s Hmeimim air base in the western coastal province of Latakia in Syria.
Syrian government forces had so far made heavy use of artillery and rockets in the current assault, and Russian warplanes that were critical to the recovery of other rebel-held areas had not been deployed until now.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has sworn to recapture the sensitive strategic area and the army began ramping up its assault there last week, threatening a “de-escalation” zone agreed by the United States and Russia last year.
Throwing in Russia’s full military weight in the campaign to regain southern Syria will weaken the ability of mainstream Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebel groups to withstand relentless bombing on civilian areas that forced their compatriots in other areas to submit to surrender deals.
Opposition hopes had been raised after Washington warned Assad and his Russian allies that violations of the zone would have “serious repercussions” and pledged “firm and appropriate measures”.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said earlier on Friday that the Syrian military escalation “unambiguously violates” the de-escalation arrangement.
“Russia will ultimately bear responsibility for any further escalations in Syria,” Haley said in a statement.
Rebels in southern Syria have received support, including arms from Assad’s foreign foes during the seven-year-long war .
But analysts believe the aid has dropped after U.S. President Donald Trump decided last year to shut down a military aid program run by the Central Intelligence Agency.
Unless an agreement is reached between Moscow and Washington over the fate of southern Syria, a big offensive risks an escalation that could draw the United States deeper into the war.
Southwest Syria is of strategic concern to U.S.-allied Israel, which this year has stepped up attacks on Iran-backed militia allied to Assad.
U.S ally Jordan which had long said the zone had brought relative calm on its northern border announced it was engaged in intensive diplomacy with Washington and Moscow to preserve the zone and prevent a wider confrontation.
“We stress the importance of respecting the agreement and we are working to prevent the explosion of the situation,” Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi said in a tweet on Friday.
Jared Kushner (The Christian Zionists Jewish Messiah) says I am not sure President Abbas has the ability to, or is willing to, lean into finishing a peace deal .”
Palestinian Interview, Questioning His Ability to Reach a Deal
Kushner spoke about the peace plan, saying details will be up to the parties: ‘Not everyone will agree that it’s the right package, but reaching for peace takes courage’
WASHINGTON – Jared Kushner, U.S. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, gave a rare interview in Arabic over the weekend to the Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds. Kushner spoke about the United States administration’s peace plan, and criticized the blanket rejection Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has expressed for the plan before it has even been presented.
The interview is considered an attempt to speak directly to the Palestinian people at a time when the Palestinian leadership refuses to engage with the Trump administration.

Gog and Magog attack – Eseg 37 and 38
Israel Shoots Down Syrian Fighter Jet Penetrating Israeli Airspace
Two Patriot missiles fired at Russian-made Sukhoi plane that flew 2 kilometers into Israel, IDF says
Israel shot down a Syrian fighter jet that penetrated Israeli airspace on Monday, the Israeli army said.
It said that the Russian-made Sukhoi plane was under surveillance when it flew some 2 kilometers (1.25 miles) into Israeli airspace.
Syria said in response that one of its jets was targeted by Israel while conducting raids in southern Syria, in Syrian airspace.
Israel’s air defenses fired two Patriot missiles at the jet. IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis said the plane was either a Sukhoi-22 or -24 and that it crashed in Syrian territory in the southern portion of the Syrian Golan Heights, although the fate of the pilots was unknown. A non-Syrian source close to the Assad government, however, said the pilot was killed.
The Israeli military said the Syrian plane took off from the T-4 airbase near Homs, which was the target of at least two Israeli airstrikes in the past. The base was used by Iranian forces and housed a command center for Iran’s drone operations in Syria.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu echoed the military’s statement, calling it “a gross violation” of the existing agreement between the two countries.
“Our air defense systems identified a Syrian Air Force jet that took off from the T-4 Syrian Air Force base and penetrated Israeli airspace,” Netanyahu said. “This is a gross violation of the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement with Syria. I have reiterated and made clear that we will not accept any such violation. We will not accept any such penetration of, or spillover into, our territory, neither on the ground nor in the air. Our forces acted appropriately. We insist that the Syrians strictly abide by the Separation of Forces Agreement between us and them.”
In Tuesday’s incident, sirens sounded in Israeli communities across the Golan Heights, near the Syria border. Residents in northern Israel reported seeing interceptor missiles being fired from the Safed area and reported hearing explosions.
The Israeli army said in a statement that Tuesday morning saw internal fighting in Syria intensifying, “including increased activity by Syrian air forces. The Israel Defense Forces is ready and vigilant, and will continue to act against violations of the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement.
“Over the years of the fighting in Syria, the Israeli army has not been involved in the fighting. But in recent days the fighting has gotten closer to Israeli territory,” the IDF spokesman added. “Today too, we are sending messages through a number of channels in a number of languages that we will not agree to accept a violation of the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement.
We can clearly see. God uses the dates of the 23rd as a Countdown date for Bible Prophecy fulfillment. Let’s Watch , Listen and see and Build Faith for God is Real and Bible Prophecy get fulfilled daily.

The Leopard with the 7 Heads and 10 Horns asks for a One Money System
Satanically Empowered Control
Control of the coming endtime government will be consolidated into the totalitarian hands of the Antichrist. The dragon, which is the devil, gives this world governmental system its seat, power, and great authority (Revelation 13:2). We will all feel the oppression of this world government structure because it is satanically inspired, and it is forming right now.
Revelation 13:7 states that power will be given to the Antichrist over “all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” Verse 3 says, “And all the world wondered after the beast.” Daniel 7:23 tells of a world governmental system ruled by the Antichrist, “The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.” The prophecy then states that this world government will rule the world until the Second Coming.
Germany Calls for New Global Payment System Independent of the US
(ZHE) 23/8/18 — In a stunning vote of “no confidence” in the US monopoly over global payment infrastructure, Germany’s foreign minister Heiko Maas called for the creation of a new payments system independent of the US that would allow Brussels to be independent in its financial operations from Washington and as a means of rescuing the nuclear deal between Iran and the west.
Writing in the German daily Handelsblatt, Maas said “Europe should not allow the US to act over our heads and at our expense. For that reason it’s essential that we strengthen European autonomy by establishing payment channels that are independent of the US, creating a European Monetary Fund and building up an independent Swift system,” he wrote, cited by the FT.
Maas said it was vital for Europe to stick with the Iran deal. “Every day the agreement continues to exist is better than the highly explosive crisis that otherwise threatens the Middle East,” he said, with the unspoken message was even clearer: Europe no longer wants to be a vassal state to US monopoly over global payments, and will now aggressively pursue its own “Swift” network that is not subservient to Washington’s every whim.
Swift, a Belgium-based global payment network, enables financial institutions worldwide to send and receive information about financial transactions. The system’s management claims Swift is politically neutral and independent, although it has previously been used to block transactions and enforce US sanctions against various countries, most notably Iran. In 2012, the Danish newspaper Berlingske wrote that US authorities managed to seize money being transferred from a Danish businessman to a German bank for a batch of US-sanctioned Cuban cigars. The transaction was made in US dollars, which allowed Washington to block it.
According to Thorsten Benner, director of the Global Public Policy Institute, a Berlin-based think-tank, Maas’s intervention was the “strongest call yet for EU financial and monetary autonomy vis-à-vis US.”
The German foreign minister’s article highlights the depth of the dilemma facing European politicians as they struggle to keep the Iran deal alive while coping with the fallout of US sanctions imposed by Mr Trump against companies doing business with Tehran.
Maas also called for the creation of a “balanced partnership” with the US in which the Europeans filled the gaps left where the US withdrew from the world. Europe must, he said, “form a counterweight when the US crosses red lines”.
As the FT adds, the EU has vowed to protect European businesses from punitive measures adopted by Washington, but that has failed to convince EU companies, who are more concerned about maintaining their access to the lucrative US market than in the more modest opportunities presented by Iran.
Last month Washington rebuffed a high-level European plea to exempt crucial industries from sanctions. Mike Pompeo, US secretary of state, and Steven Mnuchin, Treasury secretary, formally rejected an appeal for carve-outs in finance, energy and healthcare made by ministers from Germany, France, the UK and the EU.
Swift is also affected: unless it wins an exemption from sanctions, it will be required by the US to cut off targeted Iranian banks from its network by early November or face possible countermeasures against both its board members and the financial institutions that employ them. These could include asset freezes and US travel bans for the individuals, and restrictions on banks’ ability to do business in the US.
Maas’s stark warning against US domination of global payments comes with relations between Germany and the US in their worst state for decades. Mr Trump has chastised Berlin over its large trade surplus, its relatively low military spending and its support for Nord Stream 2, a new gas pipeline that will bring Russian gas directly to Germany.
Meanwhile, Berlin has looked on in dismay as Mr Trump has withdrawn the US from the Iran deal and the Paris climate treaty, imposed import tariffs on EU steel and aluminium and appeared to question America’s commitment to Nato.
In short: Europe has finally had enough and it plans on hitting back at Trump where it truly hurts: the money.

23rd of August 2018
And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.Luke 21:20
Israel Navy takes part in world’s largest maritime exercise
The Rim of the Pacific Exercise, attended by the naval commandos of 26 countries this year, practice a large international naval maneuver in which the enemy blocks a critical sea route, similar to the Strait of Hormuz Iran threatens to blockade; IDF officer: ‘The level of difficulty is remarkably higher.’
For the very first time, an IDF Navy delegation took part in the Rim of the Pacific Exercise (RIMPAC), the world’s largest international maritime warfare exercise. During the drill, which took place near Hawaii last month, Israeli officers joined the commanding team. The exercise included 25 participants from 26 countries, 47 warships, 200 fighter planes, and five submarines.
Since the early 1970’s, the exercise is held every couple of years, and simulates a naval maneuver with the participation of an international task force.
Each time, more fleets take part in the maneuver as long as they follow RIMPAC’s entry requirement and observe the previous exercise. After observing the previous one, this is the very first time the Israeli Navy takes part in the maritime drill as an active participant.
The exercise was led by the US Navy. Its main participants were Australia, Canada and Chile. Amongst this year’s participants are countries like such as Malaysia and Indonesia with whom Israel has no political ties.
Besides Israel, this was the first time for the naval commandos of Vietnam and Sri Lanka.
Because of the enormous distance, close to 10,000 miles away, Israel didn’t send its own ships, but rather joined the commanding team at the heart of the drill—the central command room at the second biggest naval base in the US, the Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam (JBPHH), in Hawaii. The exercise lasted about a month and ended two weeks ago. These days, the Israeli Navy is drawing its necessary conclusions.
The exercise simulated a relevant than ever combat scenario, in which a critical maritime route—similar to the Strait of Hormuz, which Iran threatens to intercept—is blocked.
The RIMPAC exercise also simulated a large American enemy force equipped with sea vessels spread in the sea and along the coast. The commandos, that included tens of thousands of combat soldiers and officers, split into large combat units, whose goal was to destroy a terrorist organization that had taken over two out of the five islands adjacent to Hawaii.
The international coalition forces fought against the terrorist organization according to an intelligence scenario that evolved during battle.
After the initial stage of preparation and making acquaintance with the various delegations, the forces move on to the next stage—basic training and formulating the order of battle.
Part of the mission was to communicate with and synchronize the different task forces, each consisting of about ten ships, including frigates and aircraft carriers from five to seven countries.
In the third and main stage of the exercise, dubbed as “free play,” the task forces attacked the terrorist organization with fighter jets, land forces composed of 18 countries, including the American Marines arriving from the Carl Vinson supercarrier.
“At the command post in Hawaii, we dealt with intelligence gathering, the planning of operations and the immediate operations. Alongside us, the participants included officers from the United States, Germany, Chile, Peru, Australia, Bronay, Singapore and Thailand,” Major Ran Steigman, who had a central role in the drill, told Ynet.
Besides Steigman, the head of the Navy’s Shipyards, Brigadier General Ido Ben Moshe, the naval attachés in Washington, Col. Amir Gutman, and the commander of the Israeli naval commando in charge of the INS Yaffo ship, Major Ran Koval.
“The level of difficulty in such exercises is much higher. Officers from different armies saw the Israeli flag on my uniform, turned to me and expressed great appreciation for the navy and the IDF for our achievements since the Six-Day War,” Major Steigman said.
“The Israeli delegation in the next exercise would be bigger, and American officials told me they want us to send ships as well. It is more likely that we will send land forces, such as rescue and rescue teams and combat troops. It was an amazing experience with that benefited all participants,” the Major added.
