Knowing world events clues us in to where we are on the Biblical, prophetic time line.

The big news item this past week was the double terror attack perpetrated in Norway by one man, it seems, who admits to plotting and carrying out the bombing and shooting that killed 77 people. I deal with that in a whole separate post.

Items of interest here: Taliban and Hezbollah operatives arrested on drug running charges in New York. Putin wants to be in charge of Russia again. U.S. ambivalence toward Iran and a tentative Turkey may force Saudi Arabia to be come anally of the Islam Republic, setting up Iran to become the dominate power in the Middle East. Israeli army gears up for U.N.’s consideration of Palestinian statehood.
