The Bible prophecies a war of Gog and Magog that will involve several Islamic countries and Russia (before you e-mail me, I know there are other theories and they’re on our website). When ever I read an article on Russia transferring arms to Iran and other Islamic countries (this happens more often lately), I wonder if we’re getting closer to that war against Israel that will likely lead to a 7 year peace agreement and the tribulation.
Russia and Iran signed a deal Sunday that would deliver nuclear fuel to the Middle East country for the startup of its first reactor – a project the United States had for years pushed Moscow to drop, claiming Iran is trying to build a nuclear bomb.
Iranian Vice President Gholamreza Aghazadeh and Russian Atomic Energy Agency chief Alexander Rumyantsev signed the agreement at the Bushehr nuclear power plant. The signing, which was delayed by a day, came after the two senior officials toured the $800 million complex.
“Today, a very important development occurred, and that was the protocol on returning nuclear fuel, which we signed together. In the next few weeks many Russian technicians will arrive in Bushehr” to finish the plant, Rumyantsev said after the signing.
Both officials refused to discuss the details of shipping the nuclear fuel to Iran and the spent fuel back to Russia, but insisted that the agreement conforms to international nuclear regulations. . . . .
If their following international nuclear regulations so carefully, then why not be open and transparent about the deal? I think we all know why.
On a related note, Pakistan, who has helped Iran gain nuclear technology in the past, pointed out today that, should the U.S. launch a war against Iran, Iran would be forced to surrender within weeks. Perhaps Pakistan is trying to talk some sense into their fellow Arabs. They don’t like the thought of a rather large parking lot next door.
Senator McCain may have a good idea for a change as well.
