US Senate Passes New Sanctions on Iran
The U.S. Senate passed new legislation approving sanctions on Iran Thursday in a 98-2 vote that slapped penalties on  the Islamic Republic for its "continued support of terrorism." The legislation, which was tied to sanctions on Russia, came amidst an increase in harassment of US naval ships and aircraft by Iranian forces in the Persian Gulf. Elsewhere, Iranian security forces reported that they had killed two operatives from a Sunni terror militia near its southeastern border in a shootout on Thursday. Teheran accused Saudi Arabia of supporting the terrorists.

In related news, U.S. lawmakers from both parties expressed deep concerns Thursday about a raft of proposed arms and military equipment sales to Saudi Arabia, Lebanon and Pakistan. “I don’t have a problem helping Saudi Arabia, but many members of Congress, on a bipartisan, bicameral basis, do have a significant problem when the Saudi-led military coalition is committing war crimes in Yemen,” said Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) during a meeting of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

The meeting was held during a week in which several high profile sales of US military equipment to Arab Gulf countries were either approved or made progress, including a $12 billion deal to sell dozen’s of Boeing-built F-15 jets to Qatar.

Teaching truth, celebrating God’s faithfulness

The ICEJ is probably best known for annually hosting the Christian celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles - a multicultural event that draws thousands of pilgrims to Jerusalem for teaching, worship and prayer.

In addition, ICEJ speakers undertake teaching tours, seminars, and conferences across the globe.

The ICEJ is committed to telling the truth about Israel, and helping the church to understand the wonderful faithfulness of God through the fulfillment of His promises to the Jewish people.
