The Nuclear Dangers of Illegal Immigrants
A terrorist slipping through America’s borders is bad enough; what about a terrorist employed in a nuclear power plant?
On April 13, Associated Press issued a report stating that 57 illegal immigrants were arrested in March who worked at “airports and other risk-sensitive facilities.” One man worked as an airplane mechanic in Greensboro, N.C. Another worked in a Florida nuclear power plant.
The danger this situation poses is obvious. Although none of those arrested appear to have ties to terrorism, the idea that employee background checks in key areas are this lax points toward a danger that the Trumpet has warned about many times.
We already know that the borders of the U.S. are not even close to secure, with tons of illicit drugs and a million illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border every year. A terrorist could easily enter the U.S. with whatever destructive capabilities he brought along. But imagine how much damage someone with a fake id and access to a nuclear facility could cause!
We live in a country that faces a horrifying prophecy, found in Ezekiel 5:12: “A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee ….” In his book Ezekiel: The End-Time Prophet, editor in chief Gerald Flurry explained, “The word pestilence just means destruction or death (see the Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon). One definition of the root word is ‘to lay snares, to plot against, to destroy.’ So this pestilence could be a plague of violence or burning—not necessarily a physical disease at all! It can be defined as a plague of violence or rioting—such as the Los Angeles riots in 1992 or the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks!”
The threat of terrorism in the United States is very real. Sadly, despite post-9/11 efforts, inadequate security in many areas is one element that will lead to the fulfillment of Ezekiel 5—if we don’t wake up.
