Al Monitor: Senior Israeli Cabinet ministers refer to the US-Russia deal on Syria as a strategic failure of the highest level. One minister told Al-Monitor on condition of anonymity, The United States threw Israel under the bus for the second time in a row.
The first time was the nuclear agreement with Iran, the second time is now that the United States ignores the fact that Iran is obtaining territorial continuity to the Mediterranean Sea and Israel’s northern border. What is most worrisome is that this time, it was President Donald Trump who threw us to the four winds — though viewed as Israel’s great friend. It turns out that when it comes to actions and not just talk, he didn’t deliver the goods.
Yossi Cohen, the head of the Israeli Mossad, painted a dismal forecast at a meeting of the government Aug. 13. “The region is changing to our detriment,” he told the ministers, noting that Iran has experienced economic growth since the signing of the agreement. more …
Opinion: Free Beacon Sept. 8, 2016: “Iran may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert on last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

What is no mystery is that Iran’s caliphate from the Persian Gulf, to Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon is continuing to grow, as the US presence in the region focuses on destroying ISIS.
Iranians believe that Muslims should prepare the world for the coming of the Imam Mahdi, who will establish Islamic rule around the world and clean up the planet from those who do not practice Islam.
Apocalyptic Muslims have long believed that the appearance of Mahdi would coincide with a civil war in the lands of sham (Syria), which will destroy the country.
The Shiite clerics of Iran believe that Mahdi is the child of Muhammad, the “hidden Imam” and the twelfth Imam. They argue that Muhammad al Mahdi was born thousands of years ago and disappeared to reappear later when certain signs emerge.
Shiites believe that at the end of times, the 12th Imam, will reappear with Jesus Christ at his side, kill all the infidels and raise the flag of Islam in all four corners of the world.
“And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.” Revelation 6:2
