Twice in July Israeli jets struck Iranian targets deep inside Iraq. This was the first Israeli strike in Iraq in almost 40 years. The targets were weapons transfer facilities operated by the Badr organization, a Shiite militia and political force that answers to Iran rather than to the Iraqi government.

The Israeli strikes reveal a stunning new reality in the Middle East: Iraq has fallen to Iran, and the Baghdad government has no power to stop it. What does Iran’s hold on Iraq mean as part of the ongoing quest to contain Iran?

On today’s program, host Brent Nagtegaal explores the ramifications of the Israeli strikes on Iraq, and shows how biblical prophecy supports an Iranian takeover of its long-time adversary.
