This issue looks at China’s plans to nuke America, American-Israeli relations, a prophetic word of God in a Los Angeles high school, and more.
OUR ISRAELI CONNECTION
News from The Jerusalem Prayer Team
Over breakfast with a very powerful leader in Israel (I cannot say his name, but he and I have been friends for 30 years), I was told: “Iran will cross the red line in a matter of weeks. They now have thousands of centrifuges spinning in a virtually impenetrable facility near Qom. The more time elapses, the more it becomes a zero-sum game. We are distributing gas masks to the population and preparing bomb shelters.” He continued,
“Your president is spending all his time and force attacking us. He is saying he does not trust us, and he downgraded our joint military exercise last year. And while Iran threatens to exterminate us daily, your top military officer says the US does not want to be ‘complicit’ in an attack on Iran. The mullahs are dancing in the streets of Tehran.”
Yet, at the same time…
In recognition of the growing threat facing the Jewish state, the US Department of Defense has announced a “fast-tracked” sale of V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft to Israel.
News from The Israel Project
Details continued to emerge throughout the day regarding the likely terms of an interim agreement between the international community and Iran over the latter’s nuclear program, amid increasing skepticism from U.S. policymakers that the deal being worked out would substantially check the Islamic republic’s ability to sneak across the nuclear finish line.
Analysts and diplomats are increasingly concerned that Saudi Arabia and other Gulf nations, responding to what they perceive as Western willingness to leave Iran’s nuclear program largely intact, may turn to Pakistan in order to purchase nuclear weapons off the shelf.
Tens of thousands of anti-American Iranian protesters marched today on the former U.S. embassy in Iran, part of what the Associated Press described as “Tehran’s largest anti-U.S. rally in years.”
Reports noted pervasive chants of “death to America,” and called attention to a speech by Saeed Jalili, a senior adviser to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in which Jalili described fighting the “hostile policies of America” as “the symbol of [Iran’s] national solidarity.”

Obama Secret Service Agent: Scandals ‘Worse Than You Know’
Conservativebyte.com reports: Dan Bongino has protected numerous Presidents over his career, including President Obama. He has been within ear-shot of many a discussion in the Oval Office, but up until this administration has stayed out of the lime light. Apparently, however, the activities of this administration are so abhorrent that he could no longer keep quiet. Read more.
NYC Elects a Communist Mayor
Patriotupdate.com reports: Bill de Blasio will be the next mayor of the nation’s largest and most important city. He will be the first Democratic mayor of New York City since 1993, when Rudy Giuliani defeated David Dinkins amid high crime rates and racial strife. De Blasio worked in Dinkins’ City Hall, and prior to that volunteered with the radical socialist Sandinista movement in Nicaragua. Read more.
Islamist Watch reports: Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s successor will bring change to New York City, and some of it is likely to warm an Islamist’s heart. Consider the NYPD’s post-9/11 intelligence –gathering –operations inside the Muslim community. Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly have defended these counterterrorism tactics against years of criticism; long-shot Republican candidate Joe Lhota also supports them. However, Democratic frontrunner Bill de Blasio has pledged to replace Kelly and clearly seeks to curb the NYPD, telling Muslims that “the efforts of surveillance have to be based on specifically specific information.”
Chinese State Media Show Plans for Nuke Strikes on US Cities
Conservativebyte.com reports: Chinese state-run media revealed for the first time this week that Beijing’s nuclear submarines can attack American cities as a means to counterbalance U.S. nuclear deterrence in the Pacific.

The article features 30 photos and graphics detailing, among other things, damage projections for Seattle and Los Angeles after being hit by Chinese nuclear warheads and the deadly radiation that would spread all the way to Chicago.
