Iran vows ‘Death to Israel’ as it unveils its latest missiles during National Army Day parades (but at least one looks like North Korea’s ‘fake’ wonky rocket)

editor 21 April 2017

By Gareth Davies.. Iran has paraded a missile with the sign ‘Death to Israel’ attached to it during a huge military parade showcasing deadly weapons this morning (April 18, 2017).  The ceremony was held in the capital Tehran and troops from all units took part to mark National Army Day in the country, but one weapon in particular looked a lot like a North Korean missile critics said was a fake at a similar parade. The nose of a rocket mounted onto a bigger missile appears to be pointing skywards, in the same way the North Korean weapon was comically built which prompted people to take to Twitter to say it was an empty, painted box.

How Iran Enables Syria’s Chemical Warfare Against Civilians

editor 19 April 2017

By Benjamin Weinthal.. The 59 Tomahawk missiles the US fired at the Shayrat Air Base served to punish dictator Bashar Assad for his use of chemical weapons against civilians. The strikes on April 6 also helped shine a spotlight on Iran’s role in Assad’s repeated use of nerve agents, because the mullahs’ Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps were at Shayrat. What the rapid-fire news cycle didn’t say early this month was that Tehran and Damascus jump-started a program to develop a sophisticated Syrian chemicals arsenal as early as 2004. (more…)

Watching Turkey-Iran prophecy align

editor 31 March 2017

By Bill Wilson – The Daily Jot.. Since the previous Administration placed Iran on the fast track to have nuclear weapons, a curious, possibly prophetic, development has occurred between Turkey and Iran-two nations that figure prominently in the end of days, and one must come into submission to the other for prophecy to be fulfilled. Turkey’s “president” Tayyip Erdogan has been threatening to unleash a flood of immigrants from Turkey into Europe. (more…)

Iran growing network to train foreign terrorists, dissident group says

editor 18 February 2017

By Rowan Scarborough.. Iran’s hard-line Islamic regime has escalated its overseas terrorist operations, establishing a network of over a dozen internal training camps for foreign fighters, the regime’s largest resistance group said at a press conference on Tuesday in Washington. The National Council of Resistance of Iran issued its intelligence report specifying the camps’ locations and the countries represented. [Photo top right:Photo by: Hadi Mizban Members of the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran boast an extensive spy network, including the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and its special forces wing, the Quds force, and has a track record of exposing clandestine parts of the Iranian security apparatus.

Strange Bedfellows: The Russian-Turkish-Iranian Axis

editor 26 January 2017

By Ofra Bengio.. Russia has fulfilled a long-held dream of reaching the warm water of the Mediterranean and is casting itself as the hegemon in the region. Sixty years have lapsed since the Baghdad Pact which grouped together Turkey, Iran, Iraq and the West in an alliance against the Soviet Union and the concomitant Communist danger. Nowadays this Middle Eastern architecture has shifted 180 degrees to where Russia, Turkey and Iran are in an ad hoc alliance against Islamic State but which may turn against the West as well. Still, the new alliance might be termed as a marriage of inconvenience where each of the parties has different motives and is acting at cross purposes in partitioning the Syrian bear. (more…)

Iran: Why the Mullahs Will Not Reform from Within

editor 2 January 2017

Heshmat Alavi.. Iran’s entire power structure and most of its civil society is centralized under the personal control of the Supreme Leader. In this way, Iran’s dictatorship is every bit as entrenched as North Korea’s, making the idea of traditional regime change a pipe dream. The mullahs created a regime — an entrenched revolution — specifically designed to resist change or reform, adopting a unique theocratic structure that uses both Islamic ideology and brutal force to maintain absolute power.

Opinion: End of Obama Could Mean End of Trickery on Iran

editor 22 November 2016

By Amir Taheri.. On several occasions during the presidential election campaign, Donald Trump spoke of “tearing up” President Barack Obama’s so-called nuclear deal with Iran. The Islamic Republic President Hasan Rouhani, however, has insisted that President Trump won’t be able to do that. In a sense, Rouhani is right: there is no duly negotiated, approved and signed agreement to tear up. What we have is a fiction that Obama, helped by the Rafsanjani faction in Tehran and the European Union, has sold to world public opinion. (more…)

“Global Messiah Happening” as Saudi-Iran Conflict Presages Prophesied Nuclear War

editor 10 November 2016

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz.. “And when ye go to war in your land against the adversary that oppresseth you, then ye shall sound an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before Hashem your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.” Numbers 10:9. The aftershocks of the US-brokered deal with Iran concerning their nuclear program have left many political analysts stymied, but one ancient Jewish source presents a scenario, unthinkable just a few years ago, which is now a strong possibility: a nuclear war between Saudi Arabia and Iran that leaves Israel untouched and makes way for the coming of the Messiah.
