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?

France Considers Evangelicals A Threat For Putting God Above Law Of The Republic

Evangelical Christians in France are expressing unease as they see how the national government inflames the rhetoric against their churches.
The last episode has to do with the words of the French Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin. In an interview with tv broadcaster C News, he said: “Evangelicals are a very important problem”, only to add, “obviously not a problem of the same nature than the Islamism that makes terrorist attacks and deaths”.
One day before, speaking about the controversial anti-separatism law that is expected to be passed soon, he told radio broadcaster France Inter: “We cannot discuss with people who refuse to write on paper that the law of the Republic is superior to the law of God”.

“I would like the public to have a vigorous understanding of this,” said Dr. Quay.

Stephen K. Bannon blasted the CCP for its involvement.

“The Chinese Communist Party has lied for 50 years. they basically built a Chernobyl…in Wuhan that the [People’s Liberation Army] PLA controls,” he said.

Dangerous Precedent: France To Create Religious/Political Database

The government of France will include information about the faith and political opinions in the police files of people who could be a threat to national security.


The Interior Ministry has issued three decrees that now allow to collect information about the “political opinions”, “philosophical or religious convictions” and “labour union membership” of individuals followed by the government for representing potential threats to the state.


Views expressed on social media will also be collected, the government confirmed.


Until now, the law only allowed to gather information about the “activities” of individuals, not opinions or beliefs.

Several labour unions have denounced the move as a dangerous step towards more “state surveillance”. Human rights organisation Amnesty International also denounced that now “not only people but groups” could be surveyed, adding that the new rules allow authorities to analyse the “lifestyle and movements” of citizens.
An appeal against these decrees was rejected by the Council of State on 4th January.
