Yemen Houthis upscale attacks on Saudi air facilities and bases

The Iran-backed Houthi insurgents of Yemen on Monday rained missiles and exploding drones on three air facilities in southwest Saudi Arabia: The big King Khalid Air Base and the Abha and Najran regional civilian airports. DEBKAfile’s military sources report that this escalation is of interest to Israel since Hizballah officers are attached to Houthi operations headquarters and taking notes for assaults on similar targets in Israel.

    More than half of Russians fear nuclear war

    More than half of Russians are concerned about the hypothetical start of a nuclear war, showed the results of a poll. However, most of the population does not know where the bomb shelter closest to them is located. In addition, almost one in five Russians believe that nuclear weapons have never been used for military purposes. The results are published on Hiroshima Day – World Nuclear Weapons Day.

    More than half of Russians said they were afraid of nuclear war to a certain extent. This is evidenced by a survey of the All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion ( VTsIOM ). According to the study, 33% of respondents “experienced some concern” about the possible onset of nuclear war. 14% of respondents are very worried about this, and 5% “experience constant fear.”

      At least the Russian people have a bomb shelter, not so the English people who you are wiping from the face of the earth.

      8Now, come write it on a tablet with them, and on a book engrave it, and it shall be for the last day, forever to eternity.
      engrave it: (חֻקָּהּ) engrave it, this prophecy.
      9For a rebellious people are they, lying children, children who would not hearken to the Lord’s instruction.
      a rebellious people are they: Israel.
      10Who said to the seers, “You shall not see,” and to the prophets, “You shall not prophesy for us true things. Speak to us with smooth talk; prophesy mockery.
      smooth talk: Flattery.
      prophesy: (חֲזוּ, lit., envision) prophesy.
      11Turn away from the road, turn away from the path, cease from before us the Holy One of Israel.”
      turn away: (Turn) us (away).
      from the path: We want the false prophecy.
      12Therefore, so said the Holy One of Israel, “Because you have despised this matter, and you have put your trust in oppression and a perverse one, and you have relied upon it.
      this matter: the true prophecy.
      and a perverse one: a disgraceful one and a mocker.
      13Therefore, this iniquity shall be to you as a breach of a falling [wall], revealed in a fortified wall, whose breach will come suddenly.”
      as a breach: of a fallen wall.
      revealed in a fortified wall: Revealed to enter thereby the walls of your fortification. נִבְעֶה is an expression of revealing, as in Obadiah (1: 6): “His hidden things were revealed (נִבְעוּ).” Dunash, however, interprets נִבְעֶה as a protrusion, since the wall develops blisters (אֲבַעְבּוּעוֹת) because of the rains and the deterioration of the weak mortar.
      14And He shall break it like the breaking of a potter’s jug, crushed without pity, and in its crushing shall not be found a shard, to scoop fire from a hearth, or to scoop water from a cistern.
      a potter’s jug: An earthenware jug.
      shall not be found: in the crushing of its fragments a shard large enough to scoop fire from a hearth, to pick up fire from a hearth. All scooping up of fire is referred to with an expression of חֲתִיָּה.
      or to scoop water: Or to draw. Comp. (Haggai 2:16): “To draw off (לַחְשׂף) fifty measures.” Also (below 47:2): “Draw off (חֶשְׂפִּי) the path.” Draw water from your path, Epuyse in O.F.
      from a cistern: (מִגֶּבֶא) A pit full of water.
      15For so said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; “With tranquility and restfulness shall you be saved, with quietude and trust shall be your might; but you did not want.

        maybe you not believe all that religious hocus pocus. Do not let religion rule your life. Admittedly I am not a religious person.

    As, Arabians Talks with Tehran the Iranians are still Sowing the Seeds of Deceit Attacks in Yemen & Arabia! So be it, a Religious Reconvening Reckoning is upon both the Iranians and the Houthis that the Shiia Regimes Cannot Control bringing a Curse Upon Both Misguided Men of Evil! The World Is Ready for Both!

    While throwing Russia and nukes around, one should keep in mind Israel is one SS18 Satan missile. More would be overkill. 😉

      …for he that toucheth you (Zion) toucheth the apple of His eye.‭

      Look out Gog, Prince of Magog and of Meshech, don’t get your nose hooked into needless conflict by Persia, it won’t end well.
