THE GROWING NUCLEAR THREAT
A Nuclear-Armed ISIS? It’s Not That Farfetched, Expert Says
March 30, 2016 — Defense One reports: “The murder of a security guard at a Belgian nuclear facility just two days after the Brussels attacks, coupled with evidence that Islamic State operatives had been watching researchers there, has re-ignited fears about ISIS and nuclear terrorism. Some experts, including ones cited by the New York Times and others, dismiss the possibility that ISIS could make even a crude nuclear bomb. But Matthew Bunn, the co-principal investigator at the Project on Managing the Atom at Harvard’s Belfer Center, says that the threat is quite real.
Belgium has seen numerous suspicious events related to nuclear material and facilities. In August 2014, a worker at the Doel-4 nuclear power reactor opened a valve and drained a turbine of lubricant. The valve wasn’t near any nuclear material, but the act caused at least $100 million in damage and perhaps twice that. Later, Belgian authorities discovered that a man named Ilyass Boughalab had left his job at Doel-4 to join the Islamic State in Syria. (His last background check was 2009.)
In November, shortly after the Paris attacks, Belgian authorities arrested a man named Mohammed Bakkali and discovered that he had video surveillance footage of an expert at Belgian’s SCK-CEN nuclear research facility in Mol. It now seems that the footage was collected by Ibrahim and Khalid el-Bakraoui, two of the suicide bombers in the recent Brussels attacks.
Then on March 24, a guard was found shot at Belgium’s national radioactive elements institute at Fleurus. A Belgian prosecutor declared the death unrelated to terrorism and denied reports that the guard’s security pass had been stolen and hastily de-activated…” (The above headline is being planned between 2016 and 2017. God help and bless America. I am dogmatic when I state this global shaking event could occur as predicted through nuclear weapons. I also believe this world shaking event would take the lives of millions. Revelation 9: 14 – 18 is the prophecy describing Armageddon: “…Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.” The good news is that I dogmatically believe that this battle is fought after the Rapture: “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth” – Revelation 3:10; “…I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter” – Revelation 4:1; “…the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” – I Thessalonians 4:16 – 18. Rest upon God’s Word: “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” – Titus 2:13. See the next six reports.”
UN atomic chief warns on ‘nuclear terrorism’
March 28, 2016 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “The world needs to do more to prevent ‘nuclear terrorism’, the head of the UN atomic watchdog has warned ahead of an important summit and in the wake of the Brussels terror attacks.
‘Terrorism is spreading and the possibility of using nuclear material cannot be excluded,’ International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief Yukiya Amano told AFP in an interview late Thursday.
‘Member states need to have sustained interest in strengthening nuclear security,’ he said. ‘The countries which do not recognise the danger of nuclear terrorism is the biggest problem.’
Amano’s comments came before a summit of around 50 leaders in Washington on March 31-April 1 on ensuring that nuclear material in the worlds roughly 1,000 atomic facilities are secured…”
Islamic State threat raises stakes for US nuclear summit
March 31, 2016 — SpaceDaily.com reports: “The specter of the Islamic State group obtaining a ‘dirty bomb’ will loom over a top-level nuclear security summit hosted by President Barack Obama in Washington on Thursday and Friday.
Obama welcomes several leaders from countries as diverse as China and Nigeria, as well as representatives from nearly 50 other nations, for the summit aimed at elevating the problem of shaky safeguards from the desks of technocrats to the highest corridors of power.
The meeting comes just days after 32 people were killed and 340 were injured in bombings at Brussels airport and the Belgian capital’s metro.
The attacks featured conventional explosives, but two of the suicide bombers — Ibrahim and Khalid El Bakraoui — have been linked to possible efforts by the Islamic State (IS) group to secure fissile material.
Late last year, Belgian police investigating the November 13 Paris terror attacks found 10 hours of video surveillance detailing the comings and goings of a senior Belgian nuclear official…”
