Day 324: Top Iranian Nuclear Scientist Killed

Today is November 27, 2020. It has been 324 days since the supreme leader announced a grace period for the American military to leave the Middle East.

We who watch the Signposts tend to take this warning from the supreme leader a little more seriously than the rest of the world does since this fits with the coming Second Signpost.

It was reported today on November 27 that Mohsen Fakhrizadeh (pronounced Fak-RIZA-day), who was the head of the IRGC’s nuclear weapons program, was ambushed and killed 40 miles east of Tehran. He was not only a physicist, but also an officer in the IRGC.

Dr Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, nuclear physicist, killed November 27, 2020.

There seems to be a buzz over news channels about the shooting. Some are comparing this shooting to the assassination of General Soleimani.

However, in light of the Signposts, these two events are very different. General Soleimani was the leader and a chief king (of the kings of the Persian ram of Daniel 8:20) of the IRGC. It was his death that triggered the IRGC to make the rocket attack on a US base, and the supreme leader to make his grace period announcement.

The killing of Fakhrizadeh is not as significant. Though he was the top nuclear scientist working behind the curtain as it were, any nuclear weapons the IRGC may use as part of its invasion and occupation of the Middle East may have been built or not, or may have at least been designed or not. And that’s the pointthe Second Signpost will occur with or without nuclear weapons. Only God knows, literally.

On the path to the Second Signpost, among all the events on the way, there are major and clear steps toward the Second Signpost, such as the IRGC’s ability to destroy oil facilities or military bases. The IRGC chose to display that ability five days after Soleimani’s death.

Then there are events we hear about, but are shrouded so that we do not know exactly what it means on the way to the Second Signpost. The killing of Fakhrizadeh is in this second group. Though some news sources will report that Iran’s nuclear program (most notably, Project 111) has been stopped, again, we don’t know if his work was finished or not. Either way it will not stop the Second Signpost if God has ordained it. Such events are more like course corrections, adjusting how and when the Second Signpost will be carried out.

It is only my opinion, but Fakhrizadeh’s death, unlike Soleimani’s, will not cause any direct major response from the IRGC.

Keep watching.

  1. The Soleimani killing on 2020-01-02 was justified. “The Qods Force ran Iran’s IED campaign against US and Coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. Both the Bush and Obama administrations ignored advice to retaliate against Qods Force leaders like Soleimani… By terminating Soleimani, President Donald Trump has gone to the source of not only Iranian subversion in Iraq and elsewhere, but the source of the IED attacks that ruined or destroyed so many American and Coalition lives.” https://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/2020/01/02/qassem-soleimani-ran-ied-program-to-kill-and-maim-us-coalition-troops/

    I doubt that whoever killed Fakhrizadeh had any moral justification for doing so. On 2006-06-04 the Supreme Leader of Iran stated: “We do not need a nuclear bomb. We do not have any target for which we want to use our nuclear bomb. We believe that using a nuclear weapon is not compatible with Islamic rules and we have said this frankly and outspokenly.” Khamenei has not abandoned his fatwa against nuclear weapons. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali_Khamenei%27s_fatwa_against_nuclear_weapons

  2. On 2020-10-14, the New York Post reported: “Both Twitter and Facebook took extraordinary censorship measures against The Post on Wednesday over its exposés about Hunter Biden’s emails — with Twitter baselessly charging that ‘hacked materials’ were used.” https://nypost.com/2020/10/14/facebook-twitter-block-the-post-from-posting/ A recent poll found that 17% of Biden voters would not have voted for him if they had known about what the New York Post had reported.

    On 2020-11-27, the New York Post reported that at least 11 of 13 of the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board members were fired by the Trump Administration on Thanksgiving Eve. https://nypost.com/2020/11/27/trump-administration-ousts-11-pentagon-defense-policy-board-members/ On the day after Thanksgiving, Fakhrizadeh was killed. Was that killing, which has stirred up Iran against both Israel and the US, related to the Defense Policy Board firings? Those ousted included Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright, Jane Harman, Eric Cantor, Jamie Gorelick.

    On 2020-11-29, the New York Post reported new information about the Fakhrizadeh assassination. https://nypost.com/2020/11/29/irans-mohsen-fakhrizadeh-killed-hit-squad-report-says/ The well-organized 62-person assassination team had access to detailed secretive information. Where is such information kept?
