Israel is in mortal danger.
Just a few weeks ago, during the Vienna nuclear negotiations, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei stated, “there is no cure for Israel, only annihilation.” Then, last week, he declared two of the United States’ main negotiating principles null and void. He said that all economic sanctions would have to be lifted on the day a final deal is signed and that Iranian military sites would be off limits to foreign inspectors.
And now the Russian government is claiming that it may ship the S-300 air defense missile system to Iran “at any moment.” This system, one of the most advanced air defense weapons in the world, has a range of 125 miles and can track and strike multiple targets simultaneously.
To recap, the world is handing the ability to manufacture nuclear weapons to Iran on a silver platter for the promise that they won’t…for awhile anyway. At the same time Iran is refusing to allow their nuclear facilities to be inspected. Trust, but don’t verify may be our new policy! Brilliant! And the Russians will now help make Iran invulnerable to attack… immediately after it has repeated its threat to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth.
The Jews have been persecuted before in the recent past. Iran has over 9 times the population of Israel. Iran is over 79 times larger than Israel.
And it is Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel that get portrayed by the mainstream media as unreasonable and war-mongering??!
I thought we loved the underdog?
In Ezekiel 38-39 the Bible warns that Iran (Persia at the time) and Russia (Magog) will go to war with Israel. It also warns us that the United States will not defend Israel, as it will be unwilling or unable to do so. Israel, therefore, must stand alone…with God. Further, the Bible alludes to a future world leader who will enforce a Peace Plan (“covenant”) upon Israel. This Antichrist’s actions will trigger the final 7-Year period of time often called the “Apocalypse.”
For the first time in its history, the U.S. is led by a president that appears unwilling to defend Israel. One, in fact, who seems to delight in snubbing Israel and its leader while bending over backward for Iran and others (even Russia to an extent). Netanyahu himself came over to address the United States Congress and issued an urgent plea to the U.S. not to make a Nuclear Deal with Iran.
Yet the president seems Hell-bent on getting just such a deal done.
Anybody getting nervous yet?
