October 21, 2020 — Breitbart.com reports: “Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday the Islamic republic is entirely uninterested in the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election because the next incumbent of the White House will have to surrender to the Iranian nation.
‘It is by no means important for the Islamic Republic of Iran who will win the U.S. presidential election, because any government taking power in the U.S. would have to surrender to the Iranian nation,’ Rouhani said at a weekly cabinet session on Wednesday.
According to the Tasnim News Agency, he argued the U.S.’ actions against the Iranian nation have all ‘ended in failure,’ claiming the termination of the U.N. arms embargo on Iran is evidence of a victory for Islamic rationalism against force…” (Iran will be blotted out when Russia, China, and Islamic nations fight Israel and her allies during Armageddon – Revelation 16:16.

‘Jerusalem is our city,’ Turkey’s Erdogan declares
October 2, 2020 — The Times of Israel reports: “Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Thursday implied that Jerusalem belongs to Turkey, referring to the Ottoman Empire’s control over the city for much of the modern era.
‘In this city that we had to leave in tears during the First World War, it is still possible to come across traces of the Ottoman resistance. So Jerusalem is our city, a city from us,’ he told Turkish lawmakers during a major policy speech in Ankara. ‘Our first qibla [direction of prayer in Islam] al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem are the symbolic mosques of our faith. In addition, this city is home to the holy places of Christianity and Judaism.’
The Ottoman Empire ruled over Jerusalem from 1516 to 1917. Modern Turkey, its successor state, has long stressed its enduring connection to the holy city, regularly condemning Israel’s alleged efforts to ‘judaize’ it and the US administration’s December 2017 recognition of it as Israel’s capital.
Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel since the country’s founding, and the Jewish people have thousands of years of history in the city, backed up by extensive archaeological finds…” (930 times God promises Jerusalem forever to the Jews.

Psalm 122:6 – “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.”)
