    That's right.

    For Iran is too proud to admit that it completely snookered the previous U.S. administration and Europe regarding its nuclear facilities and ambitions.

    And if Trump reinstates sanctions after May 12, Iran will simply state that it is reinstating in full its Amad program for nuclear weapons, and the ballistic missiles to deliver them unto "the utter annihilation of Israel".

    We must always remember that non-Christian Iran (Persia) is ultimately empowered by a very strong fallen-angelic prince of Satan, one so powerful that he was even allowed by YHWH God to hinder the angel of YHWH from reaching the prophet Daniel for three full weeks (Daniel 10:13-21, Ephesians 6:12).

    But YHWH God and His angels are more powerful than Satan and his angels (Daniel 10:20-21, Revelation 12:7-9).

    Also, while the present state of Israel could still be completely defeated and occupied in our future by the Baathists (Daniel 11:15-17; in verse 17 the original Hebrew word translated as "daughter" is "bath"), instead of ever being occupied by Iran, we must always remember that Iran, along with all other nations of the earth, will still be ultimately defeated and occupied by Jesus Christ at His future, Second Coming (Revelation 19:11 to 20:3).

    Regarding "Israel likely to act", that's right. For Israel knows that its very existence is threatened by Iran and its nuclear program. Israel will stop at nothing to defend itself against them.

    But this still might not be enough, in that Iran's nuclear-weapons facilities could be too far underground to be destroyed even by the best "bunker buster" bombs. And Russia could sell S-400 anti-aircraft missiles to Iran to protect its nuclear-weapons facilities from Israeli attacks.

    Also, even when both Israel and the West will build up the Baathists as the means to completely overthrow Iran, the Baathists could decide not to attack Iran at all, but to turn and attack and defeat Israel instead (Daniel 11:15-17).

    On Tuesday, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) issued an assessment in response to Netanyahu's speech firmly asserting that there are "no credible indications" supporting Netanyahu's claims of a continued Iranian nuclear weapons program after 2009.

    According to the AP summary of the IAEA assessment:

    The U.N. nuclear agency says it believes that Iran had a “coordinated” nuclear weapons program in place before 2003, but found “no credible indications” of such work after 2009...

    The documents focused on Iranian activities before 2003 and did not provide any explicit evidence that Iran has violated its 2015 nuclear deal with the international community.

    The IAEA statements followed on the heels of a number of international Iran analysts weighing in to say there appeared "nothing new" in terms of "evidence" which Netanyahu confidently presented as if it were an open-and-shut bombshell revelation of Iranian malfeasance.

    Nothing really new in @netanyahu Iran speech. Confirms that Iran closed down nuclear weapons program in 2003. Continued technology efforts. In principle all of this well known. No allegation that Iran cheats on 2015 nuclear deal.

    One such specialist in an op-ed for the New York Times called the supposed Israeli Mossad intelligence haul a big "nuclear nothingburger" full of things already well-known to the world, with the further implication that the intelligence operation that netted the files itself appears hokey and untrustworthy.

    Middle East analyst Steven Simon noted in the Times piece that:

    The archive had been stored in what Mr. Netanyahu described as a derelict warehouse in Tehran. The photos he displayed indicated that there did not even appear to be a lock on the door. One wonders how important the Iranians thought these documents were, given the slapdash approach they took to storing them. In any case, the Mossad operation that netted this haul apparently took place in January and President Trump was briefed on it shortly afterward.

    Meanwhile, former Israeli National Security Advisor Uzi Arad in response to Netanyahu's claim that Iran lied about its nuclear program, said that "at no point was there any indication that Iran violated the agreement."

    Indeed, after Netanyahu's bizarre performance which in typical fashion made heavy use of stage props and simplistically styled visuals (who can forget the absurd bugs bunny cartoon bomb image he held up at the U.N. in 2012?), there's been little reporting focused on just how a team of Mossad agents waltzed into Iran to steal from "a dilapidated warehouse" over 100,000 of the country's most sensitive and damning documents.

    To underscore this far-fetched scenario is literally the claim being made — that a large Mossad team walked into an Iranian warehouse to physically carry and secretly transport bulk print files and CDs out of the country — a senior Israeli intelligence official was widely quoted as saying of the covert operation, "We didn’t take everything because it was too heavy."

    To this we might reply it was so nice of the Iranians and their feared and paranoia-driven Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps to leave their most secretive and "hidden" files so unguarded and out in the open, and in an old unsecured building in which there "did not even appear to be a lock on the door" according to the NY Times.

    Below is the official account currently circulating of the details of the Mossad operation inside Iran, sourced to high level Israeli officials and posted to Axios by Israeli national security reporter Barak Ravid:

    • Israeli officials say the Mossad received intelligence that showed the Iranians were trying to hide all documents concerning the military dimensions of their nuclear program.
    • The official said that in a highly secret operation known to a handful of Iranian officials, the Iranians transferred tens of thousands of documents and CD's from several different sites around the country to a civilian warehouse in Tehran. The Israeli official said the Iranians did all that because they were afraid IAEA inspectors would find the documents.
    • The Mossad put the warehouse under surveillance and started preparing for a possible operation to seize the documents. According to Israeli officials, more than 100 Mossad spies worked on this operation and, in January 2018, it was implemented.
    • A senior Israeli intelligence official said the Mossad managed to put its hands on most of the documents in the warehouse. "We didn’t take everything because it was too heavy", he said.
    The trove of Persian language documents are still being reportedly translated and analyzed by separate teams of Mossad and CIA specialists.

    Assuming any of the details of the claimed Mossad "secret files" heist are accurate, the likely correct version of events is that being offered by the IAEA, while the Iranians themselves remained unmoved by the strange presentation, slamming the Israeli PM's accusations, calling him "an infamous liar" who "can't stop crying wolf."

    Iran-aligned Houthis in Yemen fire missiles at Saudi capital

    RIYADH/DUBAI (Reuters) - Yemen’s Houthis fired a salvo of ballistic missiles at Saudi Arabia’s capital on Wednesday - an attack Saudi authorities said they intercepted in the skies over Riyadh.

    The assault took place a day after Saudi Arabia’s top Western ally the United States pulled out of a deal with Iran over its disputed nuclear programme and could signal an uptick in tensions between Riyadh and regional rival Tehran.
