Find out what motivates the Islamic Republic of Iran to pursue nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic weapons capabilities as top analysts, including former IAEA Deputy Director, Olli Heinonen, point out that “given the stockpile of low-enriched uranium the Iranians have on hand,” within three to eight months Iran could construct a nuclear bomb.

Hear this and more as special guest, Raymond Ibrahim and I expose President Obama in his dishonesty regarding a non-existent fatwa. Repeatedly, the President and his team have sought to suggest that the Islamic regime issued a ruling or fatwa creating an Islamic law that had in effect placed a ban on nuclear weapons – this in an attempt to allay the fears of the American people. However, such a fatwa has never materialized. [See: http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/8508.htm , Inquiry and Analysis, report no. 1151, 04.06.2015]
Also a Middle East specialist, Ibrahim is fluent in Arabic, writes and speaks on critical topics such as Islamic law and doctrine and documents the abuse of Christians in Muslim dominant countries. Hear our discussion on the latest attacks on Christians and the dangerous potential for increased terrorism on America’s home soil as the staggering growth of immigrants from the Middle East persists.
Also hear about some Christian Arabs who are choosing to serve as soldiers in the Israeli Defense Forces, (IDF), now under threat from the Muslim population in the heavily Christian city of Nazareth in northern Israel.
And listen to this special interview with in-studio guests Col. Gordon Fisher, Vice President of the Military Officers Assoc. of America, (MOAA), Kern County Chapter, who served as a Commanding Officer in the United States Army for several years. Col.

Finally, President Obama is set to kill the Tomahawk and Hellfire Missile Programs. These missile programs are considered the most advanced cruise missiles in the world and are currently used against the Islamic State or ISIS. Contact your member of Congress. Urge your elected officials in the House and the Senate to fund these programs and maintain military readiness rather than reduce the ability of the United States to shape events around the globe.
