Suspected Nuclear Site Identified in Syria

by Dr. Michael D. Evans

The Institute for Science and International Security in Washington has published satellite photos that appear to confirm suspicions of a nuclear site in Syria. The Institute's report declared that Syria's nuclear weapons program was much more advanced than previously thought when Israel bombed it in 2007. Photos show the nuclear reactor to have been nearly operational at the time.

Inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) found traces of processed uranium at the site, although Syria's spokesmen continue to deny they had a nuclear program. The published photos also reveal efforts by Syria to conceal evidence following the attack. Ominously, Syria has denied repeated attempts by the IAEA to return to the site for follow-up inspections, and German intelligence reports there may be three new nuclear sites being developed at the al-Kibar site.

This news comes as two Iranian warships are docked in Syria—including a supply ship with undisclosed cargo. Iran and Syria share a radical Islamic worldview and a hatred of Israel, and it is certainly possible that they are sharing nuclear weapons technology as well.

Yet against this backdrop of uncertainty and threat, the United States government is continuing to pursue a policy of appeasement by working with world powers to create a Palestinian state at great cost to Israel. The plan is for the UN to unilaterally and officially proclaim a Palestinian State with East Jerusalem as its capital. This action will be taken not far from where Islamic terrorists flew fuel-laden airplanes into the World Trade Center Towers and killed 2,752 innocent men, women, and children almost exactly ten years after that dreadful attack.

The Jerusalem Prayer Team has launched the "Save Jerusalem" Campaign—a national media initiative to sound the alarm to alert Bible-believing Christians to the danger posed by this plan...and to urge them to speak out against it.
