22-Feb-11: Update - Iranian warships are on the move

From Associated Press in the past hour:
Suez Canal officials say two Iranian naval vessels have entered the strategic waterway en route for the Mediterranean Sea. Canal officials say the ships — a frigate and a supply vessel — entered the canal early Tuesday morning and are expected to reach the Mediterranean later in the day. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they aren't authorized to speak publicly about the matter. 
UPI says this morning:
Passage through the Canal can take 14 hours... Iranian Navy Lt. Cmdr. Rear Adm. Gholam-Reza Khadem Biqam told Iran's Fars news agency the warships will be dispatched to the Mediterranean Sea and will remain in the area for a year for training exercises. The canal's northern mouth, Port Said, is approximately 60 miles from Israel. The warships' intended destination means they will be sailing parallel to the coast of Israel...

The politicians always think that they know what’s best for the Jewish people, but only G-d knows that and He already told us what to do–-fight for the land and get rid of those who refuse to live in peace. The “House of Darkness” (UN) is already stirring, demanding a ceasefire, which is another word for surrender to terror and hope they won’t hit us again. Of course, the current unnamed leader of Hamas lost no time in getting in front of the TV cameras and said, “Israel must pull out of Gaza and stop the blockade. Then we will talk.” What a big surprise! That’s what happened in 2009 and their “talk” was more rockets being lobbed at Jewish homes. [Sigh] Let’s hope Bi Bi doesn’t wimp out like all the others. No Ceasefire until there is total victory!!! More at http://moshesharon.wordpress.com
