Show Notes

  • Terror again struck New York City as a man tied to the Islamic State drove a truck through a crowd, killing eight people. What is the solution to these attacks?
  • North African leaders warn that Iran is making inroads into their countries, and say Iran wants to dominate the Arab world—which is exactly what Bible prophecy says.
  • New satellite imagery shows that China has continued militarizing the South China Sea, and analysts say that it is certain to begin asserting its power in these strategic waters.
  • Efforts to form a new government in Germany are not going well, and all Europe seems stuck as it awaits a resolution to this leadership vacuum in the Union’s strongest nation.
  • We’ll also talk about a newly declassified CIA document showing the depth of collusion between Iran and al Qaeda—a thawing of frosty relations between China and South Korea—and the annual spike in crime and violence on Halloween.
