Iranian Factory Near Qom Faces Significant Explosion by Behold Israel

A chemical factory in central Iran experienced a massive explosion on Sunday, resulting in the arrival of well over a dozen firefighting vehicles; The source of the explosion remains unknown.

Qom, located in central Iran, was rocked by a massive explosion on Sunday in one of its chemical factories, resulting in the injury of at least two firefighters. Reports indicate that upwards of 20 fire engines had to arrive on the scene to help put out the fire, consisting of approximately 150 firefighters. The particular site of interest is the Movaledan chemical factory.

According to one representative from the fire department, two of the fire engines involved caught fire following multiple explosions that occurred. Online video showed how dark smoke filled the sky in the immediate area. One of two firefighters injured in Sunday’s event remains in critical condition.

Initial reports revealed that the cause of the blast remains unknown, much like the series of explosions and fires that took place throughout the Islamic Republic in the summer of 2020. Sunday’s explosion took place during a time when tensions are on the rise between Iran and Israel. Iran blamed Israel for the series of explosions that occurred last year.

WARGAMING: China LIve-Drilled Attacks on US Carrier While Sending Record 25 Warplanes Into Taiwan’s Airspace

China live-drilled attacks on US carrier while sending record 25 warplanes into Taiwan’s airspace, analysts say

By: Ryan Morgan, American Military News, April 14, 2021

Chinese warplanes appear to have simulated an attack on a U.S. aircraft carrier during Monday flights around Taiwan, multiple defense analysts told Newsweek on Tuesday.

On Monday, China sent a record number of warplanes into Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ), as part of an ongoing aerial campaign around the island. On the same day, the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group (CSG) sailed north of the Philippines’ northernmost island of Luzon, according to publicly available ship tracking data. Luzon lies directly south of Taiwan.

Chieh Chung, a research fellow at the Association of Strategic Foresight in Taipei, Taiwan told Newsweek the Chinese warplanes likely took the opportunity to run a “simulated attack” on the U.S. aircraft carrier.

Report Suggests Tehran Further Violated Terms Of JCPOABy Behold Israel, Apr 11, 2021Without going into detail, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) hinted that the Islamic Republic once again violated the terms of the Iran nuclear deal this week.In the most recent report from the IAEA, Iran is suggested to have violated the terms of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) once again. This violation, as has been the case in other instances, relates to Iran’s enriched uranium stockpile. However, while the UN’s nuclear watchdog refrained from specifically mentioning any violations, Reuters pointed out that these reports are typically in sync with new violations.The site in view in this case is the Esfahan nuclear powerplant.According to Reuters, “On 7 April 2021, the Agency verified at the Fuel Plate Fabrication Plant at Esfahan that Iran had dissolved six unirradiated scrap fuel plates for the TRR Tehran Research Reactor containing 0.43 kg of uranium enriched up to 20% U-235.”The alleged violation(s) took place while representatives from Iran were in Vienna partaking in indirect conversations with the US concerning the deal.The post Report Suggests Tehran Further Violated Terms of JCPOA appeared first on Behold Israel.

Biden Administration Removes Air Defense Systems From Saudi Kingdom by Behold Israel

y Behold Israel, Apr 2, 2021

As the new White House administration seeks to shift US policy concerning the Middle East, it has removed key military assets during a time in which military pressure is mounting from the Islamic Republic.

In what was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Biden administration is moving military assets out of the Gulf region at a significant rate, according to a report this week. The removal of military interests from the region is reportedly for several reasons, including the refocusing on other regions of the world. However, there’s no question that the Biden administration has zero intentions of working with the Saudis like the former administration.

According to the report, the White House has “removed at least three Patriot antimissile batteries from the Gulf region, including one from Prince Sultan Air Base in Saudi Arabia, that had been put in place in recent years to help protect American forces.”

Continuing, it revealed that more assets could soon be departing the region, saying, “Some capabilities, including an aircraft carrier and surveillance systems, are being diverted from the Middle East to answer military needs elsewhere around the globe…other reductions are under consideration.”

This move from the Biden administration comes when the Iranian-sponsored Houthi Rebels have been increasing their attacks on the Kingdom via ballistic missiles and explosive drones. They have often targeted Aramco oil facilities and civilian airports.

Despite the administration’s said commitment to building a relationship with the Saudis, removing these key military interests comes at a very compromising time.

The Great Shift – Changing Christian Demographics Around The World

News Image
One of the major religion-related news headlines today revolves around the decline of Christianity in North America. Western Europe is now considered post-Christian and surveys consistently report declines in religious belief, attendance, and self-identification.


Yet, over the last century, there has been a pronounced shift of Christianity from the Global North to the Global South, with dramatic growth of Christian populations in places like sub-Saharan Africa and East Asia. 


This phenomenon appears to be continuing in the 21st century. This article provides a nuanced analysis to a big, global question about the world’s largest religion: is it shrinking, or is it shifting?


The World Christian Encyclopedia, 3rd edition, 2 helps to answer this question by presenting a portrait of Christianity that is truly global. By ‘truly global’ we mean in the sense that Christianity is present in every country and among many peoples, but more fundamentally in its contextualization in the world’s cultures and its engagement with the rest of humanity.


Africa became the continent with the most Christians in 2018, surpassing Latin America (which surpassed Europe in 2014). This marks a milestone for African Christianity and raises several important issues related to Christianity’s shift to the South.


Are Christian resources also shifting? Is theological writing shifting? Are global histories of Christianity being written?

Media and Mind Control

I have put a self-imposed fast on watching or listening to any main stream media. Since the election I pretty much go to websites and people that I trust to get what little news that I get. I’m just sick and tired of the main stream media lying constantly and using psychological tricks to try to control the population. The media has an agenda, it is a far left wing Nazi agenda. It’s funny how they call conservatives Nazis. The Nazi party was a left-wing socialist group. They banned and burn books, they confiscated weapons, they put unorthodox rules and laws into affect to control the people in Germany. I am a Christian conservative I am not a Nazi and just because I love our country and want to put it first in the world doesn’t mean I’m a nationalist. A strong America makes for a strong world. We are the last great hope for democracy in this world. With God’s help we will keep it. But it will not be easy.

Pompeo: When China Sees Dems ‘Deeply Tied’ to BLM ‘They Sense That America May Well Be in Decline’ – Must Defend America’s Greatness

By: Ian Hanchett, Breitbart News, 19 Mar 2021:

On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reacted to the exchange between American and Chinese officials earlier in the week and said that Chinese officials “mentioned Black Lives Matter as part of the reason they think American democracy is in decline, those are running buddies of Marxist-Leninists all around the world.

And so, when they see a Democrat Party that is so deeply tied to the Black Lives Matter movement, I think they sense that America may well be in decline.”

Pompeo said, “I would have called it out for exactly what it is, this idea somehow that America isn’t a beacon of democracy around the world, that’s just nonsense and it is crazy for them to make that attack. … They mentioned Black Lives Matter as part of the reason they think American democracy is in decline, those are running buddies of Marxist-Leninists all around the world. And so, when they see a Democrat Party that is so deeply tied to the Black Lives Matter movement, I think they sense that America may well be in decline. I would have made clear that America stands for protecting its own. I would have reiterated our views about America first. We would have talked about the greatness and the exceptionalism of our nation, and we would have called them out for what they did to the world with this virus that has destroyed millions of lives. We’ve lost millions of lives and billion dollars worth of wealth. It is unacceptable that the administration didn’t push back in that way.”

IAEA Says Iran Is Enriching Uranium With Advanced Centrifuges At Natanz Nuclear FacilityBy Behold Israel, Mar 19, 2021

The facility was believed to be attacked via a Mossad operation last year, which led to significant damage being dealt; The IAEA reported that Tehran is using the IR-4 centrifuge to enrich uranium.

According to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which operates as the United Nation’s nuclear watchdog, the Islamic Republic is now enriching uranium via advanced IR-4 centrifuges at its Natanz nuclear facility. In so doing, Tehran is further breaching the terms set in the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran nuclear deal. 

Under the terms of the JCPOA, Iran is only permitted to use the 1st generation IR-1 centrifuges. 

In its recent statement, first reported by Reuters, the IAEA said, “On 15 March 2021, the Agency verified that Iran began feeding the cascade of 174 IR-4 centrifuges already installed at FEP (fuel enrichment plant) with natural UF6.”

They added, “In summary, as of 15 March 2021, Iran was using 5,060 IR-1 centrifuges installed in 30 cascades, 522 IR-2m centrifuges installed in three cascades and 174 IR-4 centrifuges installed in one cascade, to enrich natural UF6 up to 5% U-235 at FEP.”

Interestingly enough, this particular facility was dealt heavy damage last summer after a fire broke out, which was speculated by many to be an act of sabotage. The suspicion grew due to a series of similar incidents throughout the season, specifically in Iran. However, it’s clear that Tehran has been committed to restoring this facility.

Though the Islamic Republic began increasing its violations of the deal after the Trump administration withdrew in 2018, these breaches have only increased all the more in recent months. Furthermore, Tehran intends to install a second cascade of the IR-4 at the Natanz facility in the future.
