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.
