Luke 19:43 The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side.
“Hardly a day goes by when our senses are not bludgeoned by some new outbreak of terrorism in the Middle East. Despite our best efforts at making and keeping the peace, political, economic, and religious tensions often lead to unrest, violence, and riots.”
-Jim Bakker in “Prosperity and the Coming Apocalypse”
A German citizen and three Iranian-German duel nationals have been arrested for illegally supplying Iran with equipment necessary to build a nuclear reactor. Germany has laws in place prohibiting the sale of any nuclear-related equipment to Iran.
Iran is currently in the process of building a heavy-water reactor that they claim is only for peaceful purposes.
Prosecutors have told media outlets that the men have acknowledged they were aware the purpose of the parts. A fifth suspect is currently at large and has not been named by government officials.
Last month, President Obama ordered new economic sanctions against Iran and also on financial companies to enhance the existing sanctions against the country. US intelligence sources believe that Iran is using the facility for enriching uranium for nuclear weapons.
Iran has previously tested medium range missiles capable of striking Israel. Iran leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly expressed his desire to annihilate Israel.
