Reuters World News: “Four of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) vessels “harassed” a U.S. warship on Tuesday near the Strait of Hormuz, a U.S. defense official said, amid Washington’s concerns about Iran’s posture in the Gulf and in the Syrian civil war.

The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said on Wednesday that two of the Iranian vessels came within 300 yards of the USS Nitze in an incident that was “unsafe and unprofessional.”

The vessels harassed the destroyer by “conducting a high speed intercept and closing within a short distance of Nitze, despite repeated warnings,” the official said.”

Opinion: The direct result of leading from behind. It began in Libya, 2011, during the downfall of Gadaffi as the rebels reached Tripoli. Obama choked and passed the baton to an international coalition.

It continued in Syria with the infamous red line and it continues today as Russian Planes buzz US war ships, Iran takes US Navy sailors prisoner on their knees at gun point, and now the same nation that was bestowed $150 billion in Obamacash and  $400 million in ransom, is kicking sand in the face of the President of the United States.

It is embarrassing and it is on purpose.

From underfunding the military to firing over 100 generals to an incompetent and bloated Veterans Administration, this president is doing every thing he can to weaken and degrade the world’s lone global superpower and strongest military in the world.

The transfer of power and prestige to a global government is underway. All that is needed is 4 more years.

YNet News: “While Israel’s leadership is busy exhausting itself arguing over Hamas’s tunnel digging in Gaza in 2014, they are missing—or perhaps ignoring—a major threat the terror organization is preparing in the West Bank.

This political threat, which very well might pose obstacles to Israel’s operations in the West Bank, can’t be destroyed using technological measures.

Hamas is about to take over the municipal centers of power in the West Bank in a legal and democratic way in several weeks time as part of its plan to take over the entire Palestinian Authority—but we, as we always do, may have missed the train yet again.”

Opinion: Flush with $70 million from the Christian charity World Vision scandal, and from Iranian Obamacash, Hamas appears ready to try for a Palestinian takeover of the West Bank.

Unlike the cunningly deceptive terrorist Mahmoud Abbas, who convinced progressive left leaders that he is a moderate, Hamas overtly declares its intentions to wipe out every Jew in the holy land.

They even said so in their covenant:

“Or struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious and calls for the eventual creation of an Islamic state in Palestine, in place of Israel and the Palestinian Territories, and the obliteration or dissolution of Israel.” 

If Hamas defeats Fatah in the October 8 elections, the danger for Jews in the West Bank will ratchet to new heights, as Palestinian/Hamas territory would grow ten-fold.

Even more daunting is that the West Bank borders Jerusalem. Instead of rockets raining down on the small towns on the Gaza border, the most populous centers of Israel would be under threat, as well as the Holy City.

If the elections swing towards Hamas, Bible students should watch for the beginning of two prophecies:

Psalm 83:6-8, (pre-tribulation) lists both Edom (West Bank-Judea and Samaria) and Philistia (Gaza) as part of an alliance that will attack Israel.

Zechariah 14:2 (post-tribulation) takes place just before the return of Christ.

After bombers, Russian S-400s for Iranian base

Debkafile: “Russian giant Antonov An-124 air freighters are ready to take off Wednesday, Aug. 17, carrying an array of advanced S-400 and S-300 air defense missiles bound for the new Russian air base just completed at Noji, 50 km from the western Iranian town of Hamedan (Biblical Shushan).

Moscow is getting set to explain to concerned Americans and Israelis that the sophisticated missile systems will not be put in Iranian hands but serve exclusively for defending the new Russian air base just established in Noji to house heavy bombers for air strikes against Islamist terrorists in Syria.

This is the first time since the 1979 Islamic revolution that Iran has allowed a foreign military to set up a base on its soil.”

Opinion: “And in Shushan the citadel the Jews killed and destroyed five hundred men.” Esther 9:6

Biblical Shushan, or Susa, was a city in Persia (modern day Iran). That Russia, who will one day lead Iran in an assault on Israel (Ez. 38:1-6), would be the first foreign military to establish a base is more than coincidental. Shushan is modern day Shush.

Esther 9:1-2 records that in Shushan, the Jews pre-empted an attack by the Persian army that had been instigated by Haman, who had plotted to destroy every Jew. That pre-empted attack became the battle plan for the Six Day War of 1967.

Russia is expanding its military might in Iran, Syria, and Ukraine with little or no resistance from the west. It appears that Putin might be setting up an attack to influence the US election.

A J Street man on the ticket

JPost: “The Obama administration ultimately crafted an Israel doctrine largely in sync with the raison d’etre of J Street.

Tapped as Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Kaine
