A Messianic Jewish leader expects Israel may attempt to take out Iranian nuclear sites within the next year or so.

Tehran and world powers face a June 30 target date to finalize a comprehensive nuclear deal for curbing Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief. But not everyone is on board with the plan. In fact, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently told a prestigious Israeli conference that he isn't the only voice in the Middle East against the deal.

The Israeli leader said that though he is often "portrayed as the nuclear party pooper," he has talked to Israel's neighbors and that "nobody in this region believes this deal will block Iran's path to the bomb."

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, believes Israel may eventually take matters into its own hands.

"I still believe we're going to wake up one of these mornings with big headlines – either in 2015 or 2016 – and read that Israel has taken out most or all of those nuclear reactors," she shares. "Israel has no choice but to do that, and she'll probably do it alone. I guarantee you America won't be by her side under this current administration."

Markell tells OneNewsNow: "God says when he plants Israel back on the land, nothing will destroy them. Benjamin Netanyahu may not know that reference, but Christians know that God is going to protect Israel from an Iranian nuclear bomb."

She also suggests Israel may want to wait for any move against Iran until after the 2016 elections when a Republican president might become Israel's ally in such an operation.
