Clock Ticking for Israel to Destroy Iranian Reactor

posted by Mark Herringshaw

Will Israel attack Iran’s new Bushehr nuclear reactor before Russia loads fuel on Saturday? Former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton warned this week that once Russia installs the fuel Israel would no longer be willing to strike for fear of triggering widespread radiation.

“This is a very, very big victory for Iran,” Bolton said. “This is a huge threshold.” He added that when Russia announced their plans last Friday, “the element of surprise was essentially taken away” from Israeli calculations.

The US has increased sanctions on Iran in an ongoing effort to pressure Tehran to halt its nuclear program. But with Russia and other countries lending full support to Iran’s program, sanctions have had little impact. In recent months Iranian leaders have issued repeated threats to Israel both verbally and in overt support of terrorists planning attacks against Israel.

Israel needs prayer today…

“God, we again pray for your people, the Jews and your land, Israel. We pray for your Divine hand of protection. We ask you to guard and guide. Give wisdom to Israeli leaders. Give boldness and prudence and supernatural insight for how to navigate this crisis. Give them solutions they have not imagined. Bolster support for them among their few friends in the world. May the US continue to be a bold partner of Israel. Resist Iran’s efforts to gain nuclear weapons. Frustrate their plans and actions. Bring a change in leadership in Iran. Give courage to progressive voices there who want to moderate Iran’s positions. God bless the growing Christian movement in Iran. And bless Iran through them. Protect your people, Israel. Remember them. Bring peace to Jerusalem. Our heart is there, with you Lord! In Jesus…”

    Anyone who quotes John Bolton, except to laugh at him, should hide behind anonymity like the cowardly writers of this tiny piece of Beleifnet.

    Who is this who leads a prayer to incite Americans to engage in a war alongside (or for) an Israel which is not our friend but our parasite; whose war crimes and crimes against humanity spill over onto us because we support whatever they do in the UN. A country whose acts have cost US soldiers’ lives and which even attacked a US Navy ship in international waters, killing 34 sailers and wounding 173.

    I apologize for claiming the foolish writer is anonymous. Mark Herringshaw’s name, while obscure, is there. But he does need to think more deeply about what he espouses.

My Unruly, Devastating Tongue. I Repent.

The Shortest Prayer Can Be the Most Powerful
A friend of mine told me recently the story of a two-word prayer that she prayed that changed her life forever. Moments earlier she had given birth – an emergency C-section – to her firstborn, a son. In the midst of fear and elation, she suddenly realized that she wasn't up for the job. She coul

Pray While Swiffering
I (Jill) like the Fly Lady. She has taught me to not worry about perfectionism. And I love my mom. She taught me how to clean a house thoroughly. But as much as I love her, her voice of perfectionism sometimes reverberates in my mind and brings conflict to my emotions – I want a clean house, but d
