Chunk of Antarctic ice shelf collapses

Wednesday March 26, 09:42 AM

A chunk of Antarctic ice about seven times the size of Manhattan has suddenly collapsed, putting an even greater portion of glacial ice at risk, scientists said.

Satellite images show the runaway disintegration of a 415 square kilometre chunk in western Antarctica, which started on February 28. It was the edge of the Wilkins ice shelf and has been there for hundreds, maybe 1,500 years.

This is the result of global warming, said British Antarctic Survey scientist David Vaughan.

Israel, Germany agree to step up military cooperation

EXTRA: Israel, Germany agree to step up military cooperation Mon, 17 Mar 2008 4:37 AM PDTJerusalem -
Jerusalem -
Israel and Germany agreed Monday to intensify their military cooperation, partly by investing in technological projects of mutual interest, a joint statement said. This means, for example, developing protection for both the German and Israeli armed forces against such threats as ballistic missiles, a member of the German delegation to Israel said.

The two countries will also exchange more military personnel, expanding an exchange programme launched in 1998 to include officers and cadets from their navies and air forces.

The memorandum of understanding signed by Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak and his German counterpart, Franz Josef Jung, and detailing the stepped up military cooperation is as part of a broader bilateral agreement between the two countries.
Germany may be the key nation to break the United Nations gridlock over how to deal with Iran (Jerusalem Post, March 16, 2008).
Daniel 9:27 talks about a “prince” confirming a covenant with many—a covenant that will lead to the establishing of sacrifices on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. A King of the North will defile the “sanctuary fortress” and remove the daily sacrifices, eventually magnifying himself above the gods (Daniel 11:29-37). This King of the North will emerge from a powerful political-religious union involving European nations.
It is important to watch the continuing involvement of European nations and the Vatican in Israel.
