Trump is considering a military strike against Iran in an attempt to stop Tehran`s growing nuclear program

Iran will make a new nuclear bomb in a short period of time, and The New York Times reported last week that President Trump was considering a military strike against Iran in an attempt to stop Tehran`s growing nuclear program.

Iran`s uranium stockpile is 12-times larger than allowed under the Obama-era nuclear deal that the Trump administration withdrew from in 2018, according to The International Atomic Energy Agency.

Trump held a meeting Thursday in the Oval Office to discuss his options, but Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo dissuaded him against any actions right now. Saudi Arabia is also concerned, and Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz has spoken twice over the past two weeks with Miller to discuss Iran.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met in Saudi Arabia with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and the main topic of conversation was Iran. Tensions between Washington and Tehran have been high since January when Trump ordered a drone strike in Baghdad that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran`s elite Quds Force.

Thousands of U.S troops will by mid-January withdraw from Afghanistan and Iraq. Trump has long called for troops to come home and has criticized US intervention abroad. It seems like the troops are on the way to Iran because the US will not sit still and see Iran create a nuclear bomb.

The head of Nato warned of a «very high price», and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called the plan «a mistake».

Mitch McConnell warned the president against making «any earth-shaking changes in regards to defense and foreign policy» before leaving the White House. Trump is yet to concede to Biden, and the cuts are scheduled to take place five days before Biden takes office on 20 January 2021.

Soleimani supported Hezbollah in Lebanon and helped bolster the government of Bashar al-Assad, and he helped to plan the Russian military intervention in Syria

Iran is the no.1 state sponsor of terror and according to president Trump, Soleimani was a monster. Obama was taking out Osama Bin Laden and everybody said is was OK, but there is hysteria because Trump was taking out Soleimani who was a dangerous terrorist.

When Osama Bin Laden was taken out, oil prices did spike before it declined again, and we see the same situation now. But there is one thing that makes this case different. America has become the nr.1 exporter of oil, and that is a game changer.

Soleimani was designated as a terrorist by the U.S and the EU for his alleged involvement in attacks that led to the deaths of American troops stationed abroad. The entity he led, the Quds Force is considered a terrorist arganization by Canada, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and The U.S.

Soleimani supported Hezbollah in Lebanon and helped bolster the government of Bashar al-Assad, a key Iranian ally, during Irans operations in the Syrian Civil War. He also helped to plan the Russian military intervention in Syria. Some countries in Europe are also supporting Hezbollah.

Hezbollah allies are Iran, Syria, Russia, Lebanon, Iraq, Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela. They also get support from Amal Movement, Houthis and Hamas. Hezbollah was founded in the early 1980`s as part of an Iranian effort to aggregate a variety of militant Lebanese Shia group into a unified organization.

Hezbollah acts as a proxy for Iran in the ongoing Iran-Israel proxy conflict. Hezbollah was conceived by Muslim clerics and funded by Iran primarily to harass Israel. Its leaders were followers of Ayatollah Khomeini.

Hezbollah`s military strength has grown so significantly that its paramilitary wing is considered more powerful than the Lebanese Army, and they organized volunteers who fought on the Bosnian side during the Bosnian War.

Since 2012, Hezbollah has helped the Syrian government during the Syrian civil war in its fight against the Syrian opposition, which Hezbollah has described as a Zionist plot and a «Wahhabi-Zionist conspiracy» to destroy its alliance with Assad against Israel. It has deployed its militia in both Syria and Iraq to fight or train local forces to fight against ISIL.

ISIL stands for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria). Officially known as Islamic State (IS). Also known by its Arabic-language acronym Daesh.

ISIL gained global prominence in early 2014 when it drove Iraqi government forces out of key cities in its Western Iraq offensive, followed by its capture of Mosul and the Sinjar massacre.

The group has been designated a terrorist organization by the United Nations. ISIL is widely known for its videos of beheadings and other types of executions of both soldiers and civilians, including journalists and aid workers, and its destruction of cultural heritage sites.

The United Nations holds ISIL responsible for committing human rights abuses, genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. ISIL committed ethnic cleansing on a historic and unprecedented scale in northern Iraq.

Their ideology is Islamic nationalism, Anti-Zionism, Anti-imperialism, Shia Jihad, Khomeinism, Anti-West and Antisemitism. Their religion is Shia Islam. Trump said he is trying to stop a war. Not to start a war. Huh. Is he trying to stop Islamic globalism?

Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq end at session highs amid tensions with Iran.

Netanyahu`s re-election improved the changes of a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians

Benjamin Netanyahu is set to be Israel`s longest-serving prime minister despite ongoing probes and a tough election campaign against a former military chief. Netanyahu faced tough challenge from the military veteran Gantz, who has the security credentials prized by Israeli’s and a clean-hands image.

This referendum was all about Netanyahus character, as hes likely to be indicted on corruption charges later this year. But people in Israel voted for him because they don`t care about some cigars and a few packages. He is suspected of wrongfully accepting $264,000-worth of gifts, which prosecutors said included cigars and Champaign, from tycoons and dispensing favours in alleged bids for improved coverage by an Israeli newspaper and a website.

Attorney General Avihai Mandelblit intends to charge Netanyahu in three craft cases, but Netanyahu claim he is innocent but will also stand down if convicted. Netanyahu is called «the magican» and «King Bibi», and he has previously said that the corruption probes were fabricated by opponents who can`t defeat him at the ballot box.

Netanyahu became the leader of Likud in 1993 and won the 1996 elections, becoming Israels yongest-ever Prime Minister, serving his first term from June 1996 to July 1999. He worked as a Finance Minister from 2003 to 2005 in Ariel Sharons governments.

Following the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, his temporary successor Shimon Peres decided to call early elections in order to give the government a mandate to advance the peace process. Netanyahu hired Republican political operative Arthur Finkelstein to run his campaign, and he became the youngest person in history of the position and the first Israeli Prime Minister to be born in the State of Israel.

Netanyahu`s victory over the pre-election favorite Shimon Peres surprised many. The main catalyst in the downfall of the latter was a wave of suicide bombings shortly before the elections, on 3 and 4 March 1996.

Palestinians carried out two suicide bombings, killing 32 Israelis, with Peres seemingly unable to stop the attacks. Unlike Peres, Netanyahu did not trust Yasser Arafat and conditioned any progress at the peace process on the Palestinian National Authority fulfilling its obligations, mainly fighting terrorism, and ran with the campaign slogan «Netanyahu – making a safe peace».

He engaged in a major reform of the Israeli economy, which was credited by commentators as having significantly improved Israels subsequent economic performance. During Netanyahus decade in power, Israel`s economy grew nearly 75 percent.

Netanyahu retook the Likud leadership in December 2005, after Sharon left to form a new party, Kadima. In December 2006, Netanyahu retook the Likud leadership in Opposition in the Knesset and Chairman of Likud.

Following the 2009 parliament election, in which Likud placed second and right-wing parties won a majority. He formed a coalition government. He won electoral victory in the 2013 elections for the third time, and in the 2015 elections for the fourth time, matching David Ben-Gurion for most premierships, and he is the only prime minister in Israel`s history to have been elected three times in a row.

This is a historic day for Israel, and one of the secret weapons in this election is the relationship with the U.S president Donald Trump who recognized Jerusalem as Israels capital and recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. He also delivered Netanyahu a jackpot when he was withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal.

Netanyahus re-election improved the changes of a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. «Hes been a great ally and hes a friend. Id like to congratulate him on a well-thought-out race,» Trump said.

«I think well see some pretty good action in terms of peace,» Trump told reporters at the White house on Wednesday. «I never made a promise. But everyone said you cant have peace in the Middle East with Israel and the Palestinians. I think we have a chance,» Trump said.

Before the inauguration in 2017, Trump assigned his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to seek the «deal of the century» by coming up with a new Middle East peace plan. Pompeo has also said that they have some new and fresh and different ideas.

Kushner said a few weeks ago that the Trump administration will not release its peace plan prior to the election this week. He is working with Trump`s former personal lawyer Jason Greenblatt to present economic elements of the plan to wealthy Arab allies after series of meetings at the Munich Security Conference in Warsaw, Poland.

It would be great for Netanyahu if the peace plan is released before coalition formation because that can broaden his coalition. But he has said in the past that he will not divide Jerusalem, even if Palestinians say they want to establish their capital there as well. Jerusalem is a pivot point and that can also disrupt Natanyahu`s ability to hold together a coalition.

If Kushner can`t achieve Mideast peace, nobody can, Trump said.
