    The new Amazon Kindle Thriller, The Bahrain Protocol, continues to predict a future that we are living in right now; read the snippet below. DAY 1 – 1:00pm Tel Aviv, Israel – Council of War One thousand four hundred kilometers away from Riyadh, deliberations were taking place in Tel Aviv, in a bunker five stores deep under the city. Around a large oval mahogany table, a group of men sat, some in military uniforms, and others in suits. The Prime Minister sat at the head of the table, and behind him was a large screen with satellite pictures of Iran nuclear sites. “Iran now has advanced centrifuges, and they have just announced reaching 20% purity for uranium.” “Gentlemen, they have enough centrifuges to reach 90% purity for the uranium in six weeks, which is all that is needed for an atomic bomb; we cannot wait any longer!” the Prime Minister emphatically stated to his colleagues. Slamming his fist on the table, the Prime Minister growled, “This American President-and the Europeans-have gone soft with the idea that the new President of Iran will negotiate their nuclear technology away; or worse, have accepted the idea of Iran having nuclear weapons, and of somehow containing them”. “We however do not have the advantage of being on the other side of an ocean thousands of kilometers away.” If we do not act, Israel will be open to annihilation within minutes, 24 hours a day.” “Perhaps if you had not interfered in the last American elections, we would have a stronger friend in the White House.” The Prime Minister’s eyes reddened from this slight from a coalition minister. “What is done is done!” he retorted. “We still have many American friends, and the economic and military aid still comes.” “Yes, but for how long?” asked another minister. “Even the American conservatives have warned us that there is not an endless supply of aid.” “That is precisely why we must act now,” said the Prime Minister fiercely. America has forgotten who her true friends are.” “We must remind her!”
