IRAN HAS ENOUGH URANIUM TO BUILD AT LEAST TWO BOMBS
***Note: Today is the last day to sign up for The Joshua Fund "prayer & vision trip" to Israel in Nov
By Joel C. Rosenberg
(WASHINGTON, D.C., September 1, 2009) -- Last night, Lynn and I and several members of our Joshua Fund team hosted a dinner party for Dr. Dore Gold and a small group of evangelical Christian and Catholic leaders and journalists at our home.
A long-time friend and senior advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Gold is the author of several New York Times best-selling books about the Middle East. His latest is a must-read expose of the apocalyptic ayatollahs entitled, The Rise of Nuclear Iran: How Tehran Defies The West.
The evening's chilling headline: Gold noted that a careful reading of the new IAEA report indicates that Iran now appears to have enough uranium to produce at least two nuclear bombs.
[FULL DETAILS AND QUOTES FROM THE EVENING ON MY WEBLOG, INCLUDING LINK TO NEW IAEA REPORT]
Gold told the group -- which included former Senator Rick Santorum, former. Rep. Steve Largent, radio host Janet Parshall, and journalists from CBN, National Review and World magazine -- that he is deeply skeptical of the West's efforts to engage Iran diplomatically, arguing that the evidence clearly indicates Tehran has used previous negotiations to buy time to aggressively advance the country's nuclear program.
He noted that Hassan Rowhani, who served as Iran's chief nuclear negotiator from 2003 to 2005, once bragged to hardliners in a closed-door speech in Tehran: "When we were negotiating with the Europeans in Tehran, we were installing equipment in parts of the facility in Isfahan." It is the opening anecdote Gold uses in his fascinating new book as he documents how Iranian leaders are engaged in a systematic campaign of "strategic deception" with the West to hide the enormity of its efforts to acquire nuclear weapons.
Gold, who could be tapped in the future to serve in the Netanyahu government, declined to speculate on Israeli military options.
He did say Israelis feel very much alone in the current conflict, and he expressed his deep personal gratitude to the evangelical Christian and pro-Israel Catholic community for their love and support of the Jewish people and the Jewish state.
As the evening closed, I gave Amb. Gold, whom I have known since I worked for Netanyahu in 2000, an advance copy of the new INSIDE THE REVOLUTION documentary film on DVD. The film will be released nationwide on September 11th, and will be highlighted in the "National Town Hall Meeting on the Threat of Radical Islam and the Church's Response" we are hosting on 9/11. The event will be moderated by Janet Parshall.
An interview with Amb. Gold appears in the film, along with exclusive interviews with Prime Minister Netanyahu and other U.S. and Middle Eastern political, military and religious leaders.
Nearly 500 churches are now signed up to show a high-resolution webcast of the 9/11 town hall meeting. It's not too late to sign up at www.insidetherevolution.org.

unpossible. Israel still exists.
But it’s OK, because according to the International Atomic Energy Agency, it is unclear whether they are making nuclear weapons. Whew. I feel so much better. Don’t you?
The 3,000 centrifugesshould supply enough material for at least 1 bomb per year, so.....at this point in time, 2 bomb’s worth is probably about right.
Obama gave them a mandate
No, the IAEA does not know if it is coming or going. /s
I am shocked, absolutely shocked, that someone would accuse the democratically elected government of Iran of such scoundrelous subterfuge.
Like Clockwork -—— Orange.
I think the most insulting approach to destroying the Iranian nuke program is to paint our bombs to look like hogs. :’)
Heh... The only disappointment of a-bombing most Moslem countries is, the aftermath doesn’t look that much different than the, uh, foremath.
The Borg Cube!
“Heh... The only disappointment of a-bombing most Moslem countries is, the aftermath doesnt look that much different than the, uh, foremath.”
You definitely got a point. More in reply to #13.
I don’t think the Star Trek writers put it into the show by accident..
Exclusive of the technology of course.
Can you imagine the stink arising from that mass of neanderthals?
