If someone had asked you a year ago what would be the most efficient way to cause a major war in the Middle East, you might well have said: Giving the mullahs in Iran the opportunity to get advanced conventional weapons, ICBMs, nuclear weapons and tens of billion of dollars to fund terrorist organizations and destabilize other countries in the region. You might have argued that a regime that does not hesitate to attack targets in Washington or Berlin might not be the most prudent one to shower with gigantic quantities of money and the deadliest weapons.
If one knows anything about the regime in Iran, it is difficult to understand how U.S. President Barack Obama’s agreement with Iran could create anything other than chaos and war in the Middle East.
The content of the Iran nuclear agreement creates the perfect conditions for a major war in the Middle East — one that could spread and start a major regional conflict.
Despite what President Obama likes to say, it is not true that the agreement “permanently prohibits Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon” or “cuts off all of Iran’s pathways to a bomb”. The agreement means that the U.S. has accepted that after 15 years, or sooner, Iran may build as many bombs as it likes.
Afsana Lachaux, now 47, had been a successful civil servant and worked as a policy adviser for Gordon Brown and David Blunkett when she met French engineer Bruno in 2008.They married two years later, moved to Dubai and had a son, Louis, but when the marriage broke down in 2011 Afsana’s dream turned into a nightmare as she was branded an unfit mother and falsely accused of kidnap before her little boy was cruelly taken away from her.Reasons given by the court for awarding custody of the child to his father rather than Afsana include her inability to breastfeed, the fact that Louis suffered from eczema, that some of her friends are gay, and that she sent an “un-Islamic” text message to her ex-husband wishing him a happy Christmas.
A new YouTube clip shows Iranian troops conquering Jerusalem.
It’s an animated piece, with combined forces from Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Hamas, Iraq’s Badr group, and Hezbollah combining to take the city from the Israelis. It is a scenario that is plausible to too many across the globe, including pro Israel individuals and groups, and allies.
But it isn’t biblical.
The headline of the clip states:“Preparation of the complete destruction of Israel by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Islamic Revolution in Iran.”
A Saudi press report revealed the identity of the figure behind attempts to recruit Palestinians in the West Bank to the ranks of Hezbollah, Israeli news site nrg reported on Sunday.
Citing Palestinian sources, Saudi daily Okaz said that Qais Obaid, a former Mossad agent who became a Hezbollah operative in Lebanon, has been instrumental in recruiting members of Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades to carry out terrorist attacks against Israelis on behalf of the Iran-backed terrorist organization.
Spain’s center-right government under Mariano Rajoy continues to pursue policies that are antagonistic towards Israel — policies that are virtually unchanged from the government of former Socialist Prime Minister of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero — policies that largely coincide with the objectives of the BDS movement.
Although Spain’s Foreign Minister has repeatedly said that the government does not support a boycott against Israel, under his watch the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), the Foreign Ministry’s primary aid-giving agency, has continued to subsidize organizations that work to delegitimize Israel.
