Iran's Nuclear Program

Introduction - Iran's nuclear program is at the point of developing weapons and the rhetoric makes it sound like they intend to use them. This and the repercussions of it would, of course, change our world by an order of magnitude or two more than 9/11 did. Most people have no idea of the scale of the crisis that is coming. And they certainly don't understand the behind-the-scenes activity of the four angels who are holding back the winds of strife until a certain objective is accomplished.

You make think that I put too much emphasis on this one area but it surpasses many of the other signs of the times we might look at in importance. Soon, the present truth of the very relevant prophecy of Daniel Chapter 8 will be fulfilled.

Note that I am simply sharing items of interest. That does not imply that I agree with everything presented.

"And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars ... nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes ..." (Matt 24:6-7)

"'The entire equation in the Middle East will change,' he asserted."

Khamenei Warns Iran's Top Leaders: WAR IN WEEKS / August 1, 2012

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

"On July 27, just before Friday prayers, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei summoned top Iranian military chiefs for what he called 'their last war council.'

"'We'll be at war within weeks,' he told the gathering, debkafile's exclusive Iranian and intelligence sources disclose.

"That same Friday, the US Air force unveiled its new Massive Ordnance Penetrators. Each bunker buster weighs 30,000 pounds and is able to penetrate 60 feet of reinforced concrete.

"Turning to retaliation, the war council endorsed a battery of paybacks for potential US and/or Israeli pre-emptive strikes against Iran's nuclear program.

"Hizballah in Lebanon and Hamas and Jihad Islami in Gaza stand ready to pitch in against Israel with attacks from the north and the southwest.

"Saudi oil export terminals would be blown up and mines sown in the Strait of Hormuz to impede the export of one-fifth of the world's oil.

"Khamenei put before his war council a timeline of weeks for the coming conflict-September or October."

By Joanna Paraszczuk / The Jerusalem / August 1, 2012

"Anyone who loves freedom and justice
must strive for the annihilation of the
Zionist regime."

"In a speech published on his website Thursday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the ultimate goal of world forces must be the annihilation of Israel.

"Speaking to ambassadors from Islamic countries ahead of 'Qods Day' ('Jerusalem Day'), an annual Iranian anti-Zionist event established in 1979 by Ayatollah Khomeini and which falls this year on August 17, Ahmadinejad said that a 'horrible Zionist current' had been managing world affairs for 'about 400 years.'

"Repeating traditional anti-Semitic slurs, the Iranian president accused 'Zionists' of controlling the world's media and financial systems."

Wartime tasks split: US to Smash Iran's Missiles, Israel Tackle Syria, Hizballah -- Exclusive Report / August 5, 2012

The Fateh-110 is the core weapon Syria
and Hizballah have stocked for destroying
strategic targets in Israel, Jordan and Turkey.

"An authoritative US military source told debkafile Sunday, Aug. 5 that the American armed forces are standing ready for war with Iran.

"It is understood that one of the US Air Force's tasks will be to destroy Iran's Shehab-3 ballistic missile batteries which have Israel and Saudi Arabia within range.

"This task is not as formidable as Iranian spokesmen would have the world believe. Tehran's entire stock of those missiles is no more than 30-40. That quantity is not nearly enough to take on the entire gamut of potential wartime foes, the United States Middle East bases, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan and Turkey. They would quickly be picked off by American Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense Systems and Israeli Arrow guided interceptor rockets, which are synchronized through the advanced US X-Band radar systems installed in the Israeli Negev and southeast Turkey."

"We Are Preparing For Massive Civil War," Says DHS Informant
ETF Daily / August 7, 2012

Civil War
"The situation is far worse than a struggle
between any two factions within the U.S."

"In a riveting interview on TruNews Radio, Wednesday, private investigator Doug Hagmann said high-level, reliable sources told him the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing for 'massive civil war' in America.

"'Folks, we're getting ready for one massive economic collapse,' Hagmann told TruNews host Rick Wiles.

"Hagmann goes on to say that his sources tell him the concerns of the DHS stem from a collapse of the U.S. dollar and the hyperinflation a collapse in the value of the world's primary reserve currency implies to a nation of 311 million Americans, who, for the significant portion of the population, is armed.

KAHLILI: Iran's Radical Rulers Close In On the Bomb
By: Reza Kahlili / Washington / August 9, 2012

Iran's Radical Rulers

"Iran continues unabated with its illicit nuclear and missile programs despite a decade of negotiations, being targeted by cyberwarfare and recent harsh sanctions on the Iranian Central Bank and oil industry piled on top of earlier, crippling sanctions.

"Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized that the enemy has been plotting to pressure Iran. 'They clearly say that with pressure through sanctions, our officials will be forced to re-evaluate their decisions,' the ayatollah said. 'However, realization of the facts are that not only will we not rethink our decisions, but we will continue the chosen path with more confidence.

"More than 11,000 centrifuges are currently spinning at the Natanz nuclear facility, an increase of 3,000 from just months ago. Hundreds of centrifuges are enriching uranium to the 20 percent level at the previously secret Fordow facility deep in a mountain.

"The latest IAEA report as of May verified that Iran has enough enriched uranium for six nuclear bombs, should it advance enrichment to weaponization grade.

"Meanwhile, Iran, in collaboration with China and North Korea, has stockpiled more than 1,000 ballistic missiles capable of reaching all U.S. bases and oil fields in the region, Israel and several capitals in Europe. Iran currently is working on intercontinental ballistic missiles under the guise of its space program that will soon be capable of reaching any point on the planet."

Barak: A Nuclear Iran Is Taking Shape Before Us. Time for Decisions Is Short / August 9, 2012

The price of allowing Iran's nuclear program
to attain a nuclear weapon will be much
greater than the cost of an attack.

"Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, took up most of a long radio interview given by Defense Minister Ehud Barak Thursday, Aug. 9. He explained that US and Israeli intelligence essentially see eye to eye on this matter and so do he and the prime minister.

"Barak referred to the new US National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran as confirming that both capitals understand that not much time is left for making decision on whether or not to go on the offensive against Iran's nuclear program facilities and when, because, he said, 'a nuclear Iran is taking shape right before our eyes.'"

Is Israel Planning EMP Attack on Iran?
Tehran nearing 'zone of immunity' against conventional assault on nuclear sites
By: F. Michael Maloof / / August 20, 2012

EMP Attack

WASHINGTON -- Analysts say because Israel now believes diplomacy has failed to halt Iran's nuclear program and the Jewish state's very survival is at stake, Israelis have not ruled out a Jericho III missile launch to detonate a single electromagnetic pulse warhead at high altitude over central Iran.

"The assessment is underscored by recent comments from Israeli officials that the Islamic republic is reaching its "zone of immunity" from conventional military attack on its nuclear sites.

"Meanwhile, top religious and political officials in Iran have issued repeated warnings they plan to obliterate the Jewish state."

Egypt Prof: Israel Will Be Gone By Next Year
Ex-MP Gamal Zahran tells Iranian TV station that, Allah willing, Jewish state will be annihilated
Times of / August 27, 2012

Israel Will be Gone
The revolutions have not reached the throne
of power.

"An Egyptian political science professor told an Iranian TV station that, with Allah's help, 'Israel will be annihilated' by 2013.

"In an interview with Iran's state-run Arabic news channel Al-Alam last week, Professor Gamal Zahran, head of the political science department at Egypt's Port Said University and a former Independent MP, said: 'Jerusalem is at the heart of the Palestinian cause, and the Palestinian cause is the cause of all Arabs and Muslims. The elimination of the Zionist entity is beyond debate, and the only question has to do with the circumstances.'

"Zahran added that 'the Arab revolutions, which broke out in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen -- as well as in Bahrain and elsewhere -- generate the people's hope that one day, Jerusalem and Palestine will return to them.'"

"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21:28)

Iran's nuclear program is moving closer to its apparent goal of nuclear weapons and the ability to "wipe Israel off the map." I will be watching world events very closely over the next few weeks as this crisis builds and as we soon have a U.S. presidential election.
