Large fire at oil pipeline in South Iran

Video circulating in local and social media Saturday night show a large fire blazing at an oil pipeline in southern Iran’s Khuzestan Province/ It comes after a series of devastating explosions and fires at Iran’s most sensitive nuclear and other military sites, the latest being fires on seven vessels at the Iranian port of Bushehr. There were no immediate reports of casualties.

There is a lot going on in Iran the past couple of weeks. Not sure who if anyone is doing the damage. The Middle East is the “always on”, hot spot of the world. Iran is coming to the forefront as the nation to watch at the present time. Trouble will always brew in that region. Debka File

Iran

Iran is under attack, and evidence is mounting that the long arm of Israel is behind the recent destruction of key Iranian nuclear and missile facilities. from Israel Today

Update to Previous Story

The mysterious explosion today at the Natanz nuclear facility in Iran targeted the site where Iran’s centrifuges were manufactured and assembled. The Iranians are in panic mode as it appears to be a series of inside jobs sponsored by an enemy country!

Interesting.  You just never know about the Middle East.  Israel can never allow Iran to go full nuclear.

Iran Nuclear Facility

Another explosion in an Iranian nuclear facility, this time at Natanz hardened fuel enrichment plant. The Iranians reported of a minor malfunction however there are reports of a much bigger damage.     @BeholdIsrael – Amir Tsarfati reports    
It is always curious to me when damage happens at an Iranian Nuclear facility.  Could Israel be taking care of things in a covert way?  If so, more power to them.  Iran’s capacity to make nukes must never happen.  End of the world anyone?  Just my thoughts.  I support Israel!!

Trump and Religious Freedom

PRESIDENT TRUMP SIGNS EXECUTIVE ORDER ON ADVANCING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Tuesday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to further protect religious freedom around the world. On behalf of the over two million members and supporters of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, we commend President Trump for making it absolutely clear that protecting religious freedom is a domestic and foreign policy priority.

The executive order outlines that the U.S. will budget at least $50 million per year for programs that advance international religious freedom. The White House will expand available economic tools to support our allies on religious freedom and address bad actors, whether by increasing religious freedom programming, realigning foreign assistance to better reflect country circumstances, restricting the issuance of visas, or deploying Global Magnitsky sanctions where appropriate. This order will also mandate more federal employees who work abroad to undergo training on international religious freedom.

“We are grateful to have a leader such as President Trump, who has made it so clear that he supports religious freedom and wants everyone to worship God freely,” said Timothy Head, executive director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition. “Our brothers and sisters are facing severe persecution around the world for their faith. Through this Executive Order, Trump is showing that he cares for the persecuted and is reaching out to protect and help them.”

In September 2019, President Donald J. Trump made history as the first American President to convene a meeting of global leaders at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to address International Religious Freedom.  The President was clear when he called upon “the nations of the world to end religious persecution.”  This Executive Order fully integrates the President’s vision – a vigorous defense of International Religious Freedom rights for all – into key aspects of United States foreign policy. Yet again, President Trump is taking a decisive action to keep his promise to people of faith around the world.
