The Biden administration may have known about Iran’s attack ahead of time, and it allowed the sanctions on the Muslim nation’s drone and missile production to expire. 

From The Daily Wire. Iran intended to kill large numbers of people with the unprecedented attack that it launched against Israel over the weekend, according to a new U.S. intelligence assessment.

Reuters reported that the Biden administration communicated to Iran, through the Turkish government, that it’s attack on Israel had to be “within certain limits”.

Senior U.S. officials told Semafor that that the attack — which included hundreds of one-way suicide drones and missiles — was “designed to cause mass casualties and infrastructure damage,” the report said.

Israeli officials said that Iran crossed a major red line with its attack, the first time the Islamic Republic has ever directly attacked Israel. …

They said that despite Iran’s claims that it was only targeting military infrastructure, Iran also targeted “major civilian areas” and that a direct military response would be required. …


From Breitbart. The administration of leftist President Joe Biden did not move to renew expiring sanctions in Iran’s drone and ballistic missile production at the United Nations in October, shortly after the Iran-backed massacre of an estimated 1,200 people in Israel and Saturday’s unprecedented direct missile assault by Iran on the country.

The Iranian military spent much of the past week threatening retaliation against Israel in response to a military operation targeting senior leaders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), an arm of the Iranian military and U.S.-designated terrorist organization. The operation resulted in the elimination of seven Iranian terrorists, most prominent among them Quds Force commander Mohammad Reza Zahedi.

Tehran finally acted on Saturday, launching over 300 drones and missiles towards Israeli territory. The barrage orchestrated directly by the Iranian military — and not one of its many proxy forces, such as Hezbollah in Lebanon or the Yemeni Houthi terrorist organization — was “unprecedented,” Biden said in response. It did not, however, result in major damage. …

Critics of the Biden administration noted in the aftermath of the attack that Iran has had nearly five months to legally expand its development of drone and ballistic missile technology after “transition day,” October 18, 2023. As part of former President Barack Obama’s catastrophic 2015 “Iran nuclear deal,” known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the United Nations Security Council imposed limits on Iran’s ballistic missile and drone programs. The signatories to the agreement chose October 18 as an automatic expiration deadline, presumably expecting Iran to abide by the deal and earn the termination.

Iran has consistently violated the agreement since its 2015 signing, most recently expelling International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors in November. The IAEA has repeatedly warned that Iran is enriching uranium at levels that are not consistent with peaceful nuclear development. …

The Security Council sanctions could have been extended through protocol in the United Nations to formally accuse Iran of violating the provisions of the nuclear deal. The Biden administration made no move to “snap back” the sanctions, however, instead announcing a new series of sanctions limited to some Iranian individuals and organizations, backed by dozens of states that co-signed a joint statement with the State Department in October. …

Israel is the Apple of God’s Eye. Joe Biden is not. In appeasing Iran, he has endangered the Apple of God’s Eye and failed America and America’s closest ally.
My prayer is for God to protect both America and Israel from Joe Biden and his administration.

Perhaps each and every one of us who name the Name of JESUS are experiencing GOD’s refining fire in one way or another:

Zechariah 13:9 – “And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, the Lord is my God.”

Father please continue to protect and prosper your people. You have always done great things for and through your chosen ones and I know you hold them in your heart and your hands. I pray that you continue to call them to you and that soon they respond. Please don’t ever give up on them. Even though they are a stiff necked people and have often hurt you, please continue to strive with them and do for them as you have me, all the times I back slid and didn’t honor you — you never gave up on me and I pray you won’t on them either. Thank you Savior for your mercy and grace that are new each morning. You are an awesome and faithful God. I adore you.

Yes, Biden Administration policy towards Iran have been typically feeble. I do think that the idea that they knew beforehand of the Saturday attack is quite questionable. The Administration is SO inept, that I have a hard time believing that they had advance warning. We do, however, need to stop appeasing Iran. This would not have happened under Pres. Trump’s watch. It is crucial and of the greatest importance for our government to wake up, and take a tough stance toward Iran. Lord Jesus, may Your will be done.

I have been praying and Rejoicing Greatly in this Victory also. Then I received this news article below:
This was not Iran’s actual attack – Israel365 News

(I am not sure why the above copy and paste did not put the underline on this link to just click on it and go there. ? But this is the title on the article and is the link information. Hopefully, you can find this to see it.)

I concluded from this article that we need to continue to be on the alert to the enemies’ devices and continue to pray for Israel and this situation.
This is worth being aware of, and prayerful, regarding it. This article brings out some interesting things for us know and pray about further. LORD, we Thank YOU that YOU continue to reveal the enemies’ strategies against Israel. We THANK YOU, LORD, that YOU always protect them, using whomever YOU need to. Shalom Blessings on Israel.

It was a miracle of God that Israel was not damaged by the attack by Israel of Drones and huge and many missiles . God provoked many nations to use Their air defenses.
Father You decided to give Israel and the US ( I am in Israel today and I am from upstate NY USA)
Father you urge us to tell others about Jesus, and his ability and desire to forgive suns and give a new and eternal life.

Israel must stop all media. Do not let them in to report any information about what is taken place in the war until it is over.. Israel must quickly finish Gaza off, and not answer any questions. God will take care of the rest.
