ISRAEL PRIMED FOR WAR WITH IRAN SAYS ISRAELI VICE PRIME MINISTER: Tony Perkins to speak at 2010 Epicenter Conference

FRC President Tony Perkins will speak at the 2010 Epicenter Conference.

Israel is primed and ready for a war with Iran should that become necessary, says Israeli Vice Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon.

Yaalon is slated to be the keynote speaker at the 2010 Epicenter Conference in Philadelphia next month. He will give participants an exclusive briefing on the Iranian nuclear threat and the prospects for war in the Middle East. 

“There is no doubt that the technological capabilities, which improved in recent years, have improved range and aerial refuelling capabilities, and have brought about a massive improvement in the accuracy of ordnance and intelligence,” Yaalon told a conference of military officers and experts, reported Reuters. “This capability can be used for a war on terror in Gaza, for a war in the face of rockets from Lebanon, for war on the conventional Syrian army, and also for war on a peripheral state like Iran.”

Also, I’m pleased to announce this morning that Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, will speak at the 2010 Epicenter Conference in Philadelphia next month as we seek to educate and mobilize followers of Jesus Christ throughout North America to show unconditional love and unwavering support to Israel at this critical moment.

Tony will join Janet Parshall and me on Friday night, June 25th for a panel discussion on practical ways that Christians can bless Israel. Tony will specifically discuss Israel-related legislation moving through Congress and how to support or oppose such measures, as needed. Other Christian leaders joining us on that panel will be Lt.-General (ret.) Jerry Boykin, Kay Arthur, Pastor Greg Laurie, Pastor Joe Focht, and a special guest.

On Saturday, June 26th, the conference continues with additional guests, including Israeli Vice Prime Minister Moshe Yaalon, Hormoz Shariat (the “Billy Graham of Iran”), and a video presentation by Mosab Hassan Yousef (the “Son of Hamas”). I will be giving the final keynote address on Saturday night.
