27 Jun 03:30 PDT: Iran- Iran informs the EU that they will increase their stock of nuclear fuel for their reactor above treaty limits in ten days if Europe has not taken steps to secure the treaty by then. Iran intends to break out of the unfair position of being restricted to the treaty by the EU remaining in the deal, while the US refuses its responsibilities under the deal by leaving the treaty. The present Iranian situation is that they must keep all provisions of the treaty while receiving none of its benefits.
16 Jun 15:30 PDT- Economics- India added to Trump trade wars.
10:00 PDT: Mideast Peace- The peace plan will be delayed by the Sep 17 Israeli elections. Greenblatt is now speculating about a Nov 6 2019 date for the plan’s release.
08:00 PDT: USA- President Trump accused the New York Times of committing a “virtual act of treason” for exposing US cyber attacks against Russia and tries to lie to cover up the attacks. The Times had cleared the article with administration officials before publishing it.
06:00 PDT: Mideast War- A senior Hamas delegation met with Iran’s intelligence minister in Tehran yesterday to discuss developments in the region. One can expect Iran to use its proxies to react to US pressure, which could well result in an Israeli operation in Gaza.
Israel- A large scale five day military preparedness exercise including heavy vehicles, fighter jets, assault helicopters and other aircraft is beginning mainly over the north and the Jordan Valley, Upper Galilee, Nahariya, the Sea of Galilee and the Golan. The Israeli Gaza operation is expected to also involve a war on Hezbollah, Syria and Lebanon.
01:45 PDT: Mideast War- The US got what they were hoping for from the recent tanker attacks, as the Arabs agree to action against Iran. The Arabs must now support the US Establishment peace plan at the Manama Bahrain donors conference to complete the deal. See the 14 Jun 01:00 and 16:00 news.
Israel- Lieberman’s Jewish Home party offers to join the Blue and White party and a Likud without Netanyahu, to form a national unity government after the September 17 elections. This means that Lieberman will recommend that the president task the Blue and White party to form a government; at the same time Netanyahu will face a pre trial court hearing on 2 October and the Likud could easily split between the far right Settler Movement extremists and the Likud moderates. If this works out it practically guarantees a Mideast Peace deal as soon as next year.
Gaza- Israel to allow Qatari envoy with a list of Israeli demands for concessions to avoid an invasion to enter Gaza. This list of demands to continue the calm amounts to a pre war ultimatum by Israel. An Egyptian delegation will then head to Gaza to try and save the ceasefire.
15 Jun: A Blessed Sabbath for All God’s Faithful!
12:45 PDT: Gaza- Israel blocks Qatari cash Saturday evening and makes new demands which were immediately rejected by Gaza. The Israeli move brings the Gaza situation to an explosive pitch with a major Israeli operation close at hand.
14 Jun 19:45 PDT: Iran- Pompeo insists that the 2001 AUMF provided the president with authority to wage war against anyone who “planned, authorized, committed, or aided” the attacks “or harbored such organizations or persons.” This declaration supports the international [and European] suspicion that the US carried out the attacks to create an excuse for war on Iran.
16:00 PDT: Iran- Various US allies including Japan reject US claims that Iran attacked tankers; Japan insisting that the tankers were attacked from the air by a UAV. In fact Iran shot at an American UAV loitering near the ships. Britain backs the US claims while others are calling for an independent investigation.
12:00 PDT: NATO- The NATO defense ministers will meet on 26-27 June.
Israel- Iron Dome rocket defense systems again deployed as Israeli military abandons objections and calls for major Gaza operation.

10:30 PDT: Gaza- 49 Gazans wounded by Israeli live fire so far today.
Syria- Russian president Putin has told the Bishkek SCO conference that he backs the complete destruction of the Idlib based terrorists in Syria. The Syrian Army’s 14th Special Forces Division has joined the 9th Division’s shock troops and 7th Armored Division deploying this week for another offensive against Al Qaeda.
09:00 PDT: Gaza- There is a significant disconnect between the Hamas Political Wing which wants peace and on the other side the Islamic Jihad and Hamas Military Wing which believe in armed struggle. Today dozens of incendiary balloons were launched during strong border demonstrations in spite of the Israeli offer to implement understandings if there is calm for the next week.
Everyone understands that Netanyahu wants calm to pursue political talks ahead of the deadline to register candidate lists for the September elections and the militias want to extract more concessions. This could well backfire on them as Bibi cannot afford to look weak and could be forced to undertake very strong measures instead of making more concessions.
07:00 PDT: Gaza- Mediators convinced Israel to send a message to the Gaza militias via the Qatar, Egypt and the UN envoy to the Middle East, committing to implement the understandings for the truce, which include transferring the Qatari funds and reopening the fishing zone by the weekend in exchange for calm.
04:45 PDT: Israel- Psychological preparations for war.
Asia- Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan focuses on fighting terrorism and forming Asian alliance against Trump trade war. Trump will have short term victories but will ultimately lose his trade wars, bringing the US dollar and America down into catastrophic economic collapse. See our articles on events in the immediate future.
01:00 PDT: Mideast War- Pompeo publicly blames Iran for tanker attacks even though the attacks are contrary to Iran’s interests and play directly into American hands by motivating the Arabs for the Bahrain donors conference. A brief film of Iranians collecting evidence to begin an investigation in no way proves who set the mines. Based on who has the most to gain by the attacks one would naturally suspect the Mossad, CIA or one o their proxies. This “rush to judgment” without any real evidence is inappropriate.
Israel- Tel Aviv set for huge flaunting of homosexual pride, Jews completely forgetting that possession of the land is CONDITIONAL on living by every Word of God Deu 28-30.
13 Jun 16:15 PDT: Gaza- Israel bombs multiple sites in Gaza.
11:15 PDT: BREAKING Gaza- Incoming rocket warning sirens are sounding in the Sderot and Ivim areas in the south.

Mideast War- Israel – US – Russia security conference to be held in Jerusalem Jun 24 to 26 while the Bahrain Middle East Peace donors conference is taking place.

Their joint proposal will be presented to presidents Putin and Trump at the G 20 summit in Osaka on June 28 and 29.

14:30 PDT: Gaza- Israel closes off all Gaza fishing and begins a complete naval blockade of Gaza. The escalating situation began with Gaza fire balloons in response to Israel failing to keep its ceasefire obligations, and the tension could increase explosively during this coming Friday’s Gaza border demonstrations.
10:30 PDT: Gaza- Twenty fires in Israel so far this week caused by Gaza fire balloons.
06:45 PDT: Syria- Syria rushing reinforcements to the front during 72 hour ceasefire, just declared for civilian evacuation.
02:00 PDT: Syria- Last night the Israeli military launched a missile attack on Syrian air defense radars situated at Tel Al-Harrah, a hill overlooking the Golan, Galilee and the Sea of Galilee, and used the attack to test an electronic warfare system designed to suppress Syrian air defense radar installations in southwestern Syria.

BREAKING SYRIA- The Syrian Arab Army is advancing on south Kabani after peppering the jihadist defenses with missiles for several hours on Tuesday. Intense clashes are ongoing between the Syrian Army’s 4th Armored Division and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham [Al Qaeda] at the southern axis of Kabani.
Kabani is an imperative mountaintop position of Al Qaeda defending the Latakia approach to the terrorist heartland in the plains of Idlib Province, located in the Zuwayqat Mountain region in northeastern Latakia. The Syrian Army is attempting to capture the town in order to regain control over the last jihadist-held areas in the Latakia Governorate and position itself to sweep done on the terrorists situated in the more open plains of Idlib Province.
Israel has been waiting its Gaza offensive until the Syrian army is fully engaged in wiping out the terrorists from Central Asia.
05:45 PDT: Gaza- Islamic Jihad official Muhammad Shalah complains that Israel has placed two impossible conditions on approving the next round of Qatari money: stopping the demonstrations on the fence and returning the missing bodies of IDF soldiers captured during Operation Protective Edge. He threatened that if Israel continued to insist on the new demands [which clearly break the ceasefire deal] there would be an escalation.
04:15 PDT: TheShiningLight: CORRECTION: In Chapter 49 of the Jeremiah free download study Elam has been corrected to Assyrian Empire. If you have a older version you might want to update your copy of the Jeremiah study in the interest of accuracy.
Gaza- Incendiary balloons again sparking fires in Israel and after a one-week respite the weekly protests at the border will be renewed this Friday.
Syria- Syria and Russia are holding talks with Turkey on evacuating civilians from the Kobani area before the looming Syrian assault to liberate the last terrorist stronghold on the way to their Idlib heartland.
04:45 PDT: Iran- The EU is close to completing a payment method for bypassing the US dollar. The development of this system is adding impetus to US plans to attack Iran, since the US cannot allow the dollar to be threatened. Once the Iranian regime is changed this plan will remain at the ready if a need to circumvent the US dollar should arise in the future. See this article about the future of the US dollar.
02:15 PDT: Mideast War- Gaza set to heat up as Hamas warns Israel through international mediators that they are losing patience with the Israeli failure to implement its cease fire promises. At the same time the PLO is calling for demonstrations against the Bahrain economic conference. The Gaza militias are expected to take advantage of the PLO call and up their demonstrations at the end of the month as well.
This call by the PLO is part of their posturing for the Palestinian Authority elections expected after the coming war, which elections are likely to be fought over the peace deal. The PLO demonstrations are scheduled for Friday June 14th in the village of Jibiyeh, north of Ramallah and June 24 in central Ramallah, to be followed up by demonstrations on Jun 25 and 26 during the Bahrain economic workshop. The Bahrain conference is really about getting approval for the US peace plan and iron clad financial pledges from the Arab nations in exchange for American intervention against Iran.
Syria- After a week of intense fighting over a few key hilltops the Al Qaeda has suffered very heavy casualties. Al Qaeda which is made up of various factions is beginning to come under heavy pressure as Turkey is working to entice various factions to leave Al Qaeda and join the Turkish backed militias.
Several Al Qaeda factions are strongly tempted to seek support from Turkey and bolt membership in the international Al Qaeda organization, leaving behind the foreign fighters from Central Asia to fend for themselves. The key Russian focus in Al Qaeda [Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham] is the Turkestan Islamic Party, which is made up of Central Asian terrorists and must be destroyed to prevent them returning to Russia, China and Central Asia.
Iran- A week of high-stakes diplomacy to try and save the nuclear deal begins with a visit by the German Foreign Minister, the Japanese leader is to arrive on Wednesday. This effort seems doomed to fail because the US is insisting on 12 preconditions for talks, which if accepted would amount to the complete surrender of Iran before the talks even begin. Trump’s recent climb down from the 12 preconditions is only public relations to make it appear that he does not want war as he prepares for war.
Brexit- Trump buddy Boris Johnson threatens the EU as the Conservative leadership race kicks off.

08:30 PDT: USA- Vast tracts of prime farm land under water delaying planting.
06:00 PDT: Fake US anti Iran news- Former IAEA deputy director Olli Heinonen, long a critic of his former employer, accused the IAEA in an interview of letting Iran “weaponize” uranium. He further claimed that Iran, with “maximum effort,” could produce a nuclear weapon in “six to eight months.”
Neither of these allegations are even close to true. Iran is only enriching uranium to the 3.6% level needed for its power plant, and far below the 90%+ needed for weapons-grade uranium. Iran is simply not capable of the incredibly difficult task of enriching to even half way up to the 90% level needed for nuclear weapons.

US/UK- U.S. President Donald Trump promises “a very, very substantial trade deal” between the United States and Britain after Brexit.
Israel- Jared Kushner will hold talks on the Middle East Peace Initiative with European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels on Tuesday. The visit comes ahead of the Peace Plan Donors Conference which begins on 25 June. The 25 June Bahrain conference amounts to a confab to finalize a deal between the Arabs and the US for their political and financial support for the peace plan in exchange for a US war to end the Iranian march to dominance in the region.
Syria- The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated Hamirat and the towns of Qaratah and Hardane from Al Qaeda this morning.

2 Jun 15:30 PDT: Syria- In an attempt to interdict a large shipment of precision missiles from Iran the Israeli Air Force attacked the Syrian T-4 base near Homs tonight killing five persons. The IDF reported that earlier today Israeli warplanes and helicopters attacked a number of military targets belonging to the Syrian army, including two artillery batteries, a number of observation and intelligence posts on the Golan Heights, and an SA-2 air defense battery as well as Damascus.
This was the second Israeli attack on Syria within 24 hours and the third within one week. Usually Syria and Iran respond to such provocations on Syria via proxies in Gaza.

A Gaza war to eliminate the militias and bring Gaza into the Palestinian Authority fold is looming and the US wants this peace plan financial “carrot” in place to influence the upcoming Palestinian elections, in the hope that a candidate open to the peace plan will be elected; then the way will be open to announce Phase Two, the political and security dimensions of the plan.
