Arab states are seeking nuclear weapons to counter Iran, Israel warns

Prophecy Sign:  Perilous Times


The global nuclear buildup is making for a very perilous world.  You have the likes of Pakistan, Iran and North Korea all developing or already holding nuclear weapons in their military arsenals.  These less than stellar nation states would think nothing of launching these weapons at their respective enemies, thus fulfilling the prophecies of Revelation which tell us that millions will die during the coming Tribulation at the hands of others.

Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword. Revelation 6:4 NIV

Arab states are seeking nuclear weapons to counter Iran, Israel warns
Israel has picked up signs of the beginning of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East as Arab states seek nuclear weapons to counter Iran, the Israeli defence minister has warned. Moshe Ya'alon said Sunni Arab nations were not reassured by last year's nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers and were making their own preparations for nuclear weapons. "We see signs that countries in the Arab world are preparing to acquire nuclear weapons, that they are not willing to sit quietly with Iran on brink of a nuclear or atomic bomb," Mr Ya'alon said. The defence minister gave no evidence to back up his claims but Israel closely monitors the military activities of its Arab neighbours.

North Korea’s Kim orders more rocket launches
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has praised scientists involved in the country's recent rocket launch that he said struck a "telling blow" to enemies and ordered them to press ahead with more launches, state media reported Monday. Earlier this month, North Korea ignored repeated international warnings and launched what it said was an Earth observation satellite aboard a rocket. Washington, Seoul and other view the launch as a prohibited test of missile technology and are pushing hard to have Pyongyang slapped with strong sanctions.
India building secret city to produce nuclear weapons reports US-based Foreign Policy magazine
India is building a “secret nuclear city” in Karnataka to produce thermonuclear weapons. When completed in 2017, it would be the subcontinent’s “largest military-run” complex of nuclear centrifuges, US-based Foreign Policy magazine has said in a report.
The “nuclear city” could upgrade the country as a nuclear power and unsettle its neighbours Pakistan and China, the report said. “India’s close neighbours, China and Pakistan, would see this move as a provocation: Experts say they might respond by ratcheting up their own nuclear firepower,” it says.
