What is Iran up to…and What is Israel Doing about It?

Iranian civilian aircraft suspected of transporting arms to Hezbollah

Iran continues its nefarious activity in and around Syria and Iraq.  On at least two occasions, it is believed an Iranian civilian aircraft has transported arms to Hezbollah in Lebanon and Iranian weapons factories.  Routes taken by the aircraft followed unexpected routes not used by commercial airlines.

The civilian airline ceased operations in 2013, but re-started “under new management” in 2017.  That “management” appears to be members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, according to Fox News.

But news doesn’t stop there, and Israel is not sitting back spectating.

On Tuesday evening, it was reported the Israeli Air Force levied air strikes on military installations near Hama.  Israel has admitted to delivering over 800 missile shells and mortars in over 200 airstrikes on Iranian and terrorists positions in Syria over the past year, primarily in attempts to thwart Iran’s aggressive persistence in establishing military presence on the Israeli border with Syria.

In response, Israel’s Defense Minister said:

“…[we are]monitoring everything that is happening in Syria… regarding Iranian threats, we are not limiting ourselves just to Syrian territory. This also needs to be clear.”

Friends, keep your eyes on Israel, God’s time piece, for sure!  However, take regular glances at Damascus and Iran’s ambitions in Syria.  We continue to see the stage being set for exactly what the Bible predicts will occur in end times.

Though we do not know the day or the hour, we must understand the times and seasons in which we live.  (Matthew 16:1-3, Luke 12:54-56)  Look around, my friends…and be ready for the return of our King!

BREAKING: Did the Obama Administration Secretly Plot with Iran and Mislead Congress?

News is just breaking about possible back channel deals former President Obama made with Iran.  Some are also claiming he misled Congress in attempting to keep those deals secret.

Obama’s alleged dealings with Iran had to do with providing Iran secret access to American banks, despite the sanctions levied by the Iran nuclear deal.  You can read about those allegations reported by Fox News, the Chicago Tribune, National Review, New York Post and others.

Use caution, Christian friends.  While there is compelling evidence to suggest possible impropriety, these are serious allegations that have yet to be proven factually.  I believe most Americans want truth and justice to prevail, and that should be our prayer.  Rather than rush to judgment, pray for God to grant wisdom to those involved in the investigation, and that He brings truth to light.

First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.
~1Timothy 2:1-3

Joel Rosenberg: “Trump is Tougher on Jeff Sessions than on Vladimir Putin”

Joel Rosenberg appeared on Fox News Friday night, where he spoke to Shannon Bream about growing concerns about Russia and the dangerous ambitions of Vladimir Putin.  While Rosenberg acknowledged stronger policy regarding Russia, he calls Trump “radio silent” when it comes to standing up to Putin verbally.

 I’m not saying that the President’s policies [towards Russia] so far are bad. Like, he’s increasing defense spending dramatically in the United States. He’s pushing NATO to spend more on their own defense, and they’re doing it. He’s got a great national security team around him. But he’s radio silent when it comes to Vladimir Putin, the worst dictator on the planet. He’s tougher on Jeff Sessions, than he is on Vladimir Putin.

In addition, Bream and Rosenberg discussed the recently-released statements from Obama National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, revealing her command to a cyber-response team to “stand down” in efforts to squelch Russian interference in 2016 elections.

It is incomprehensible that in the midst of a presidential campaign — a general election — that a national security advisor would tell a team of people dealing with Russian attacks — aggressive attacks — [to stand down.]

BTW – I’m reading Joel Rosenberg’s new book, The Kremlin Conspiracy.  As always, the plot seems all too real in today’s world, as he paints the picture of a power-hungry Russian czar, anxious to become the most powerful man on the planet!  Let’s hope it remains fiction!

The sleeping bear (Russia) is definitely awakening!  How the US (and the world) deal with Russia and Iran is very critical, and as believers, it is our obligation to pray for wisdom for our leaders and our allies.  Will you stop and do that right now?

Blessings!

UPDATE: DIPLOMATIC BREAKTHROUGH AHEAD OF V.P.’S ARRIVAL

———————

ORIGINAL POST: Jordan was not originally on Vice President Mike Pence’s Mideast schedule when the trip was planned for mid-December. When the trip had to be rescheduled (due to the tax cut vote) for mid-January, a visit to Amman was added. 

In my new column for Fox News, I explain why, describe the strains that have emerged in the U.S.-Jordanian alliance, and offer some thoughts on the way forward to strengthen this vitally important relationship.

But first, a look at the current itinerary. On Friday night, Air Force Two will depart…
