RT: “It may look like any other top resort in Iraq, but the Ninawa International Hotel in Mosul has one major difference. It is the first 5-star hotel for Islamic State jihadists. It includes a swimming pool and tennis court… but no bar.

The battlefield is a place of few comforts, so the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) has decided to re-open a luxury hotel in conquered territory to give its jihadists a bit of R&R. The Ninawa International Hotel in Mosul used to be one of the most luxurious in Iraq, catering to foreign guests and local dignitaries. However, its 262 rooms will now be used by extremist terror group.”

Opinion: At first I thought it was a joke. I was ready to call it the roach motel complete with  free beheading and crucifixion classes offered in the  lovely al Qaeda ball room.

But Ninawa International hotel it is the real deal. ISIS has oil wells, a gold based currency and issues annual reports. I sarcastically quipped several month ago that ISIS is planning to buy a seat on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol IKLL.

It might have been prophetic.

Arutz Sheva: “US intelligence officials revealed that during the ongoing Iran nuclear negotiations, North Korea has provided several shipments of advanced missile components to the Islamic regime in violation of UN sanctions – and the US hid the violations from the UN.

The information is particularly damaging given that Admiral Bill Gortney, Commander of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and US Northern Command (USNORTHCOM), admitted this month that the Pentagon fears that North Korea and possibly Iran can target the US with a nuclear EMP strike.

US President Barack Obama was given details of the shipments in his daily intelligence briefings, but the officials say the information was hidden from the UN by the White House so that it would not take action on the sanctions violations.”

Opinion: At least the Castro brothers are out in the open. When the UN becomes the standard of honesty we can know that our nation is in serious trouble.

But we are prepared. Our opinion post from April 6 said this:

Remember the story from Daniel 3: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego refused to bow to king Nebuchadnezzar’s statue and as a penalty were thrown into a fiery furnace stoked 7 times hotter than usual?

When the king approached, he found the three men were unharmed:

Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?”

They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.”

 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

No matter what government does, remember, we have Christ standing next to us

De-Dollarization Accelerates As More Of Washington's "Allies" Defect To China-Led Bank

Zero Hedge: “The global de-dollarization trend continues as it appears the UK’s move to join the China-led Asian Infrastructure Development Bank has indeed shown other US “allies” that spurning Washington’s advice is actually acceptable and concerns about the institution’s “standards” may simply be a diversion aimed at undermining China’s attempt to exercise more influence in
