Received in the last hour from International Christian Embassy Jerusalem this video of a brief press conference at No 10.:
Note Mrs Theresa May’s particular pleasure at welcoming Benjamin Netanyahu,
“Prime Minister, I’m very pleased to welcome you here to Number 10 Downing Street, particularly and obviously in the year in which we recognise the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration – the UK remains a very strong friend of Israel…”

As the ICEJ points out it was only on Saturday that a former official of Iran’s elite military leadership, the IRGC, bragged about attacking Israel (ie. Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps). The statement came amidst a large-scale test of Iran’s missiles and radar systems which was conducted in defiance of a stark warning from the US that such activities violate UN Security Council resolutions and would not be tolerated.
It was watching that forces’ rehearsal in mid-1980s of storming Jerusalem that I was introduced (as a non-Christian) to the reality and accuracy of Bible prophecy!
Moreover, similar units of the Iraqi army were also involved AND at the height of the Iran-Iraq war – ie. whilst enemies!
ALSO, whilst a video of their combined manoeuvres was being broadcast in that BBC documentary it so happened I was thumbing through a secular book I’d been given that explained the whole background, as outlined in Welcome and Bio. Hence my keeping an eye on Iran.
