Iran’s response to Israel’s attack on their embassy in Syria which killed several people including top military personnel, resulted in ZERO Israeli deaths this past Saturday night.

News sources reported that Israel was set to immediately strike back, until they received a phone call from U.S. President Joe Biden, who allegedly stated that the U.S. would not support them, which dissuaded them.

The next day (Monday) it was widely reported that Israel was about to retaliate, but that the response would not be severe enough to “escalate” tensions in the region.

When I got this up this morning (Tuesday), the news media began reporting that Israel was now trying to decide between a “hard” response in “revenge”, or a more tempered one to avoid any escalation.

This was the headline news this morning, but an hour or two later, most of those headlines disappeared, and it was reported that Israel would pick the time and location for their next response, which is almost identical to what Iran stated just after their embassy was bombed in Syria on April 1.

Israel has decided how to respond to Iran’s missile attack. This was reported Tuesday evening on Kan 11 evening news. Israel is now waiting to “seize an opportunity.” The agreement came against the backdrop of significant disagreements in the Israeli leadership over the timing and nature of the response. Some ministers demanded to wait for agreement on the international coalition, while others thought it was necessary to respond immediately. (Source.)

By the time you read this, their alleged plans may have changed again.

Perhaps the most significant news of the past few days in this alleged Israel – Iran war, was the news Saturday that Iran had captured a cargo ship with “links” to Israel in the Straight of Hormuz, because this is a key passage for the flow of the world’s oil and energy resources, and if Iran starts preventing ships from passing through there, it will potentially lead to higher oil prices, similar to what is currently happening in the Red Sea with the Houthis.

This alleged “small rebel group” operating in Yemen has allegedly taken on and withstood attacks from some of the most powerful naval forces in NATO, including the U.S., and not only have they survived the attempts to stop them, they have now allegedly expanded their operations!

US Says Over 90 Missiles & Drones Were Launched From Yemen In Past 48 Hours

New statements from the Pentagon issued Monday have said the Houthis fired over 90 ballistic missiles and drones – most of which were intercepted by US and allied forces over the past 48 hours, once the Iranian attack kicked off in the overnight hours of Saturday.

US Central Command described that at one point during the attack the Houthis fired an anti-ship ballistic missile directly against US Navy and commercial ships in the Gulf of Aden. (Source.)

With recent attacks on major oil refineries in both Russia and Ukraine, we can definitely see a pattern here of an apparent attempt to reduce the production of oil and other energy products in an attempt to raise the price of oil around the world.

If the website, publishing out of the U.K., is not in your newsfeed yet, it should be. This is the website for reading news through the lens of oil pricing, and is most likely used by the major Globalists who fund these wars.

Gregory R. Copley published an article yesterday that seems to cut through the B.S. being reported in the corporate media about what Iran actually did on Saturday night.

Iran’s Response To Israel’s Strike Was Pure Political Theater

Iran’s attack on Israel on the night of April 13-14, 2024, showed how well the two countries understand each other and recognize that they are not each other’s main threats. They do have a lingering conflict, but misleading Western media rhetoric that Shi’ite Iran is the primary sponsor of the Sunni/Muslim Brotherhood Hamas movement obscures realities.

1. Primary sponsors of Hamas, which began the war against Israel on October 7, 2023, are Turkey and Qatar, both Muslim Brotherhood states extremely hostile to Israel. Each has a delicate relationship with Iran, and they would have been happy to have Tehran bear the brunt of Israel’s anger. Having said that, Iran had no option but to respond to the Israeli bombing on April 1, 2024, of the Iranian consulate in Damascus, killing senior Pasdaran (IRGC) officers.

2. Iran’s response was pure political theater: Tehran leaked to the US and Israel the nature, targeting, and timing of the proposed Iranian attack on Israel, clearly indicating that it proposed a symbolic attack designed to avoid human casualties. Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei announced when the first salvos of several hundred unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs or loitering munitions), cruise missiles, and light ballistic missiles were fired, giving Israeli anti-missile forces (mainly Iron Dome and David’s Sling systems) and Allied (US, UK, and Jordanian) systems time to prepare. Some 300 Iranian systems (170 UCAVs and 120+ ballistic missiles) were fired, 99 percent were intercepted, and no deaths were recorded by Israel. As well, some 350 rockets were fired from Iran, Iraq, Yemen, and by HizbAllah (in Lebanon). No Turkish, Qatari, or Hamas assets were used in the attacks.

3. Iran very pointedly did not use its heavier ballistic missiles, such as the 2,000km range Sajjil or Sajjil-2 MRBMs (almost certainly nuclear capable) in the strike. This would not only have been threatening in terms of imagery (because of its nuclear capability), but would have brought up the Israeli Arrow 3 ABM systems. For Iran to have its Sajjils defeated (even if they were carrying only a conventional payload) would have subjected Tehran to reduced prestige and credibility. As it is now, the Iranian retaliation signaled “honor is satisfied”, even to its regional audience. Significantly, as a result, Israel has deferred a response.

4. Russia almost certainly worked with the Iranian leadership to ensure that Tehran was not drawn in by Israel to a broader response. Moscow has only now succeeded in bringing Iran into its International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC) which creates a riverine, rail, and oceanic transport link from the Baltic/Atlantic to the Indian Ocean and India via Iran. It cannot afford to have an Israeli war against Iran jeopardize this. Russia is clearly unhappy about Turkey’s réle in attempting to disrupt the INSTC in order to promote its own proposed link through the Persian Gulf to Iraq to Turkey and on to Europe.

5. There is some suggestion that Russian links may have been used to pass Iranian information to Israel and the US. Russia is also anxious not to re-ignite US or Israeli hostilities toward Syria, where Russia enjoys significant military basing.

6. Turkey on April 9, 2024, announced a trade war against Israel, in violation of specific bilateral agreements, to pressure it on the Gaza war, and also announced that another “Gaza flotilla” of multiple vessels would attempt in mid-April 2024 to breach the Israeli containment of Gaza, as was attempted in 2010 by six ships of the Mavi Marmara flotilla. The provocation, symbolic rather than substantive, comes as Turkish Pres. Recep Tayyip Erdogan attempts to recover from his worst electoral setback, showing widespread rejection of his policies at home. (Full article.)

Meanwhile, while the world has been focused on Israel and Iran for the past few days, during that same time period the genocide in Gaza has continued with Israel’s relentless bombing of the Palestinians.

68 people were killed and another 94 hospitalized in Gaza during a 48-hour period, as the death total has now allegedly reached over 33,000. (Source.)

Yesterday it was reported that new mass graves were discovered at al-Shifa Hospital and other places. Some of the bodies reportedly still had medical bandages and catheters attached to their bodies. (Source.)

Also published yesterday was a report by The Guardian that according to the World Food Programme, malnutrition among children in Gaza is spreading at a record pace, with starvation claiming at least 27 young lives of children, and thousands more are at risk.

This was a difficult one for me to watch.

As I have reported numerous times since this war broke out in Gaza, Evangelical Zionist Christians are among the main supporters of this genocide against innocent Palestinians, some of whom are Palestinian Christians.

American Congressman Pastor Timothy Walberg Calls for Nuclear Bombing of Gaza Like we Did in Japan

Trump’s Zionist son-in-law Jared Kushner, has publicly stated that he believes Gaza’s waterfront property could be very valuable after all the Palestinians leave.

Meanwhile, the Jewish Passover draws near, starting on April 22.

But if you call yourself a Jew and rely on the law and boast of your relationship to God and know his will and approve the superior things because you receive instruction from the law, and if you are convinced that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, an educator of the senseless, a teacher of little children, because you have in the law the essential features of knowledge and of the truth – therefore you who teach someone else, do you not teach yourself?

You who preach against stealing, do you steal? You who tell others not to commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?

You who boast in the law dishonor God by transgressing the law!

For just as it is written, “the name of God is being blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.”

For circumcision has its value if you practice the law, but if you break the law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision.

Therefore if the uncircumcised man obeys the righteous requirements of the law, will not his uncircumcision be regarded as circumcision?

The physically uncircumcised man, by keeping the law, will judge you to be the transgressor of the law, even though you have the letter and circumcision!

For a person is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision something that is outward in the flesh, but someone is a Jew who is one inwardly, and circumcision is of the heart by the Spirit and not by the letter. This person’s praise is not from people but from God. (by Paul, the Jewish Pharisee – Source: Romans 2:17-29)
