Debka, and now other sources, note Iran stating they’re sending additional blockade running ships together with military ships to confront Israel. I’ve been asked what I think.
First note that Debka always shouts the most worrisome headline points, picking the smallest statements of any foreign personnel to create the biggest loudest worry. They are headline grabbers, and I don’t (yet) see any mainstream outlets reporting similar (not even Al Jazeera).
That said, the scenario isn't ridiculous. The question is how impotent the other world powers will be. Most of the world powers want STABILITY. War is generally bad for business, and Middle Eastern war can have major economic impact if it disrupts oil shipments. Even Russia, who wants to gain increasing influence, doesn't really want war (but doesn't mind tension to gain influence and sell war equipment). So I would think they would use their influence to stop things getting to this point. Nor do I think having Iran start a war on their border is in Egypt's interest.
On the spiritual side of things, the mekubalim have said a war scenario was put off "until the 3 weeks" of this year. There's also a calculation debate whether it's brought down from the Gra in Kol HaTor whether the last possible date for geulah before it's time (rather than in it's time) falls on July 12 - the first of Av (at ~12:40pm) of this year or the 25th of Tammuz (at the end of Mincha gedola) next year (Rabbi Nati says it may be this year, Dov bar Leib calculates it to be next year).
It’s important to note the Lubavitcher Rebbe's view that such times don't have to develop into a negative physical scenario, and only our teshuva and (lack of sufficient) desire for the geulah is holding it back. Certainly we've seen amazing world events in the last 30 years such as the falling of the Berlin wall and crumbling of the Soviet Union, where tremendous world changes occurred in a bloodless fashion.
Of course we don’t know what tomorrow will bring. But the Rebbe stressed that in any scenario Israel remains the place of Hashem’s attention and protection, even in apparently worrisome times it’s never appropriate to run from Israel, and it’s the safest place in the world to be a Jew.
If we are coming to the biblical prophecies of Gog u’Magog, the question may be not whether it’s safe to be in Israel but if it’s safe to not be in Israel.
May the Geulah come b’rachamim mamash today.
