Israel Cyber Attacks Iran

Iranian security has uncovered evidence of the Duqu computer virus — found to be infecting computers at Iranian nuclear sites. The virus is called, “Son of Stuxnet” by cyber experts. Duqu appears, based on its code, to have been written by the same authors as the Stuxnet virus that was used to cripple an Iranian nuclear-fuel processing plant.

Both virus’ are widely believed to be the work of Israel and the United States. Experts who looked at the program were awed at its ability to penetrate Iran’s highly protected security system without the malware being detected.

Duqu secretly penetrates computer systems.  The virus then creates “hidden” weaknesses that can be exploited to destroy the networks at any time its creators believe is best. The Duqu Trojan Horse records every keystroke used on a system, allowing it to learn passwords to systems inside the network, making future penetration much easier.

Israel and Iran have been at war for some time.  Iran uses proxy terrorists to strike civilians.  Israel uses assassination and sophisticated cyber-war tactics to attack Iran.

The question is:  Will the war escalate to include aircraft strikes and troop clashes.

The Bible tells us that there is a spirit war going on in a parallel world that we do not see.  After Daniel had been fasting to seek greater understanding, God sent an angel to speak with him (Daniel 10:10–12). The angel gave Daniel an explanation about why it had taken him so long to answer Daniel’s prayers. “But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia” (vv. 13–14).

Later, this same angel relates further details of the unseen spiritual world. “Then he said, ‘Do you know why I have come to you? And now I must return to fight with the prince of Persia; and when I have gone forth, indeed the prince of Greece will come. But I will tell you what is noted in the Scripture of Truth. No one upholds me against these, except Michael your prince’” (vv. 20–21).  Michael is the prince watching over Israel (Daniel 12:1).

Clearly, this passage is speaking of spirit wars. It is describing the struggle that goes on behind world affairs in the spirit world. That Prince of Persia (Iran) exists today.  Satan is stubborn in his pursuit to stir up trouble against Israel.
