While it’s no longer news, it’s still shockingly unbelievable that President Obama and the P5+1 group (United States, United Kingdom, Russia, China, France and Germany), have agreed to a nuclear deal with Iran; the world’s largest supporter and exporter of terror. Iran currently has a nuclear program in place and, despite denials from the White House, this new deal has opened a pathway for Iran to enrich weapons-grade uranium and be ready with a nuclear bomb in ten years or less. Furthermore, part of the nuclear deal will lift current economic sanctions resulting in a windfall to Iran in excess of one hundred and fifty billion dollars.
Now that Benjamin Netanyahu has won what the Israeli media are calling "a decisive victory," people in Israel and around the world are asking themselves what Netanyahu's victory means to Israel and to the world.

As in the once very popular game of Monopoly, Iran drew another ‘get out of jail free’ card and the right to ‘return to Go’ - to go ahead with seven more months of continuing nuclear advancement. That’s what U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and five other nations received for all the time and effort invested in nuclear negotiations however Kerry did receive a slap in the face from Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

It is official. The current government in Israel is dissolving. An early election has been set for March 2015. As one of the tens of millions of Evangelical Christians who stand fervently with Israel and her citizens, it brings much relief to finally see Prime Minister Netanyahu fire the two leading left-wing ministers, who continually and loudly oppose him, in his cabinet – Finance Minister Yair Lapid and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni. These two have appeared to want their names in the headlines more than establishing unity within the coalition. The Prime Minister’s firing of Lapi and Livni sends a loud and clear message that he is more determined to tackle issues facing Israel than in pacifying media seekers within his coalition.
