Russia lines up with Syria, Iran against America and the West
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report

Russian Navy prepares for permanent Mediterranean base in Syria
Friday, Sept. 12, Moscow announced renovation had begun on the Syrian port of Tartus to provide Russia with its first long-term naval presence on the Mediterranean.
As the two naval chiefs talked in Moscow, Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov met Iranian foreign minister Manouchehr Mottaki in the Russian capital for talks on the completion of the Bushehr nuclear power plant by the end of the year.
DEBKAfile’s military sources report that the commander of the Russian, Navy Adm. Vladimir Vysotsky, and his Syrian counterpart, Gen. Taleb al Barri, spent all Friday working on details for the outfitting of Tartus port to accommodated increased Russian fleet Mediterranean missions not far from Israel’s shores.
Mottaki’s unannounced visit to the Russian capital focused on the timetable for Atomstroiexport to finish work on the Bushehr reactor after five years of delays.
Moscow has sharpened its tone in comments aimed at the West and the US in particular. President Dmitiry Medvedev said Friday that Georgia’s attack on South Ossetia was the equivalent for Russia of the 9/11 attack on America. Even if Georgia had become a NATO member, he said, he would not have thought twice about ordering the Russian army to go in.
Prime minister Vladimir Putin, after putting Moscow’s case on Georgia to the Western media, warned the US that stationing a missile defense shield near Russia’s borders would start an arms race in Europe. There was no basis for a new Cold War, he said.
DEBKAfile’s sources interpret Friday’s events as indicating that Russia’s leaders have determined not to declare a Cold War in Europe but to open a second anti-Western front in the Middle East.
In the second half of August, DEBKA file and DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s analysts discussed this re-orientation at length (Russia’s Second Front: Iran-Syria), disclosing that Moscow had decided to use its ties with Tehran and Damascus to challenge the United State and the West in the Middle East as well as the Caucasian, the Black Sea and the Caspian region.
The traumatic impact of the Georgia conflict on Russia’s rulers came through in the remarks of an unnamed Kremlin official quoted by the Russian media this week: “Everything has changed since the war with Georgia. What seemed impossible before is more than possible now when our friends become our enemies and our enemies our friends. Russia will respond. A number of possibilities are being considered, including hitting America where it hurts most – Iran and Syria.”
In aligning with Tehran and Damascus, Moscow stands not only against America but also Israel. This volatile world region is undergoing cataclysmic changes at a time when Israel is virtually without a fully competent prime minister and key political and military decision-making by the rest of the government is at a standstill.
Iran boosts covert military nuclear project by diverting UF6 uranium from Isfahan
DEBKAfile Special Report
September 12, 2008, 6:19 PM (GMT+02:00)
Missing from Isfahan: 50-60 tons of uranium
Nuclear watchdog experts have found 50-60 tons of uranium, enough to produce five or six nuclear bombs, missing from Iran’s main nuclear production facility at Isfahan. The disappearance was discovered at the final stage of the production process, where UF6, uranium in gas form is stored, by the only CCTV Iran allowed the International Atomic Energy Agency to install at Isfahan.
US satellites have also identified a number of suspicious sites, not declared to UN inspectors. The UN inspectors and US intelligence suspect that the missing gas is being used to boost covert production of weapons-grade uranium at these secret sites.
Some of the hidden facilities are situated near the main nuclear production center at Isfahan. One was discovered in the Amir Abid residential district of Tehran. There, it is believed that the advanced P2 centrifuges operating in the covert production of enriched uranium.
DEBKAfile’s sources add that Isfahan produces low-grade 4-5 percent uranium, whereas weapons grade is enriched up to 90 percent. The upgrading process is not too complicated.
Tehran has been asked to account for the missing enriched uranium before the next IAEA board meeting later this month.

JERUSALEM – The U.S. is planning to issue a letter guaranteeing the country will back agreements reached during current Israeli-Palestinian negotiations aimed at creating a Palestinian state before President Bush leaves office in January, WND has learned.
The move is intended to ensure any agreements reached by the Israelis and the Palestinian Authority, and spelled out in a joint document, will be recognized by the next U.S. administration and binding for Israel and the PA.
The information comes as Jacob Walles, the U.S. consul-general, stated in an interview with a major Palestinian newspaper yesterday that Israel and the PA agreed to negotiate Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley area leading to the Dead Sea.
In response to the report, the State Department issued a statement claiming the U.S. government has not taken a position on the borders of a future Palestinian state and denying Jerusalem is being discussed.
The sources also said the U.S. recently floated a plan to divide Jerusalem.
YOU CAN NOT GIVE AWAY A CITY THAT BELONGS TO G-D - IN MY OPINION THAT IS WHY WE ARE SEEING THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR REFINERIES ON THE GULF COAST. IT IS GOING TO GET MUCH WORSE ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES.
U.S. Refiners Accelerate Closings as Ike Strengthens (Update1)
By Christian Schmollinger and Nidaa Bakhsh
Sept. 12 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. refiners are speeding up plant closures as Hurricane Ike gathers strength toward the Texas Gulf Coast, home to 23 percent of domestic oil-processing capacity.
About 19 percent of U.S. refining capacity is being shut before Ike makes landfall today. Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Europe's largest oil company, started shutting down its Port Arthur, Texas, refinery because ``of shifts in Hurricane Ike's track,'' the company said on its Web site.
``Ike is headed into the heart of the refining industry,'' Bruce Bullock, director of the Maguire Energy Institute at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, said in an interview. ``The damage is likely to come in flooding, a lack of power for an extended period of time.''
Ike is forecast to ``become a major hurricane prior to reaching the coast,'' the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. Refiners including BP Plc, ConocoPhillips and Exxon Mobil Corp. are securing plants from Texas City, Texas to Houston.
A hurricane warning was issued from Morgan City, Louisiana, to Baffin Bay, Texas, after Ike strengthened to a Category 2 storm, the center said. The storm has sustained winds of 100 miles per hour (160 kilometers per hour) and ``strengthening is forecast during the next 24 hours.''
The Houston area's eight refineries have a processing capacity of 2.22 million barrels a day, which represents 13 percent of the U.S. total, according to their owners and the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association.
Shell operates the 285,000 barrels-a-day Port Arthur facility with Saudi Aramco through its joint venture Motiva Enterprises LLC.
Exxon Mobil began shutting its Baytown, Texas, plant, the largest in the U.S, with processing capacity of 590,500 barrels of oil a day. The Irving, Texas-based company started shutting down its 363,100 barrels-a-day Beaumont plant yesterday.
BP is closing its 475,000 barrel-a-day Texas City, Texas, refinery. ConocoPhillips, the second-largest U.S. refiner, said its 260,000 barrel-a-day refinery in Sweeny, Texas, is closing. LyondellBasell Industries, a unit of Access Industries Holdings LLC, is shutting its 299,300 barrel-a-day Houston refinery.
GreenHunter Energy Inc., an alternative energy producer, said it will shut its Houston biodiesel plant, the largest such U.S. refinery, according to a Business Wire statement.
Valero Energy Corp., the largest U.S. refiner, shut three Texas oil refineries with a combined capacity of 700,000 barrels a day because of the danger posed by the hurricane.
Valero will close its 325,000 barrel-a-day Port Arthur, Texas, refinery, a Texas City plant with a capacity of 245,000 barrels and a Houston facility which can process 130,000 barrels, spokesman Bill Day said yesterday in an e-mail.
Marathon Oil Corp., the fourth-largest U.S. oil company, began to shut its Texas City refinery, which can process about 81,500 barrels of oil a day, according to the Energy Department.
Shell earlier said it was closing its Deer Park, Texas, plant. Deer Park refines 340,000 barrels a day of oil.
The U.S. Coast Guard closed Houston, the nation's largest petroleum port before the storm, according to a statement on its Web site. Ships, barges and tugs were ordered yesterday to leave the port or obtain Coast Guard permission to remain.
The storm ``could also impair the ability to import refined products because Houston is a major port,'' Bullock said. ``You have a double whammy here.''
The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port, the biggest U.S. oil- import terminal, shut marine operations as did Port Fourchon.
U.S. energy producers have idled about 97 percent of oil production and 93 percent of natural-gas output in the Gulf of Mexico, the Minerals Management Service said on its Web site.
Gulf fields produce 1.3 million barrels a day of oil, about a quarter of U.S. production, and 7.4 billion cubic feet a day of natural gas, 14 percent of the total, government data show.
Exxon Mobil, the world's biggest oil company, shut down Gulf wells as it evacuated offshore platforms. The company said yesterday that 26,000 barrels of daily oil production and 130 million cubic feet of gas output was halted. Chevron Corp., the second-largest U.S. energy company, evacuated all of its Gulf oil and gas production platforms and drilling rigs.
Murphy Oil Corp. shut Gulf of Mexico production at two facilities, said Dory Stiles, a company spokesman, in an e- mailed statement. Hess Corp., the fifth-biggest U.S. oil producer, also said it has shut in all Gulf output.
Cheniere Energy Inc. is closing its Sabine Pass liquefied- natural-gas terminal and Creole Trail pipeline. Sabine can move up to 2.6 billion cubic feet per day of gas to Creole Trail and has 10 billion cubic feet of storage, according to Cheniere.

Jerusalem is a powder keg, loaded with nuclear potential! No city on Earth is so fraught with international tension as Jerusalem!
Not only does this ancient city play a central role in the beliefs of the three major religions—Judaism, Islam and Christianity—it is a powerful nationalist symbol for both Arabs and Jews.
Today the Israelis and Palestinians are in a bloody deadlock over who will control Jerusalem. They have tried for years now to resolve their many differences through negotiation and compromise. But their talks always break down over Jerusalem!
This is an impossible problem with no resolution that will be acceptable to all parties. As one analyst put it, “A peace between the Arabs and Jews that does not resolve the question of Jerusalem will be no peace. Indeed, a peace that weakens the Jews by returning the West Bank, Gaza and the Golan Heights to Arab control but leaves Jerusalem as an unresolved dispute will make war more not less likely. … The assumption of the diplomats that all things can be solved by negotiation underestimates the emotions involved. Jerusalem is non-negotiable (Islamic Affairs Analyst, June 1, 1993). That means there is no peaceful solution.
The situation is very bad in Jerusalem today, but your Bible says it will get much worse before it gets better.

Presently the Jews rule over all of Jerusalem, even though East Jerusalem is mostly comprised of Arabs. The Palestinians want this half for his capital. But most of the Jews won’t budge, saying they must rule all of Jerusalem.
Both sides proclaim that they must rule East Jerusalem or there will be war!
Here is the real shocker. Did you know the Bible prophesies about this one half of Jerusalem and the super-miraculous outcome? It is a prophecy that will stagger your mind.
Half of Jerusalem
“Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee” (Zechariah 14:1). The subject is the Day of the Lord—the end time. This whole book is focused on the latter days.
