Crisis is building while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu forewarns of the dangers of a nuclear weapons-possessing Iran. The world of diplomats and geopoliticians–who are proclaimed as earth’s smartest people–see Mr. Netanyahu as the instigator of the crisis, not the Iranian Islamist mullahs, ayatollahs, and war planners who have as their stated intention wiping Israel from the map. It is as if complete Chamberlain-like naivete has metastasized in the brains of those who are supposed to know how to best govern –and protect–the rest of us.
The Iranian nuclear weapons development has been allowed to continue while the likes of former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry proudly blusterd that he has assured that Iran’s nuclear weapons achievement had been postponed for ten years. This, he says, was “guaranteed” through the signatures of Iran’s Muslim leaders. These are the same leaders whose “holy” book, the Koran, tells believers in Allah that they may lie, cheat, or do anything that is necessary if it puts forward Mohammed’s directive that every person on planet earth must be made to bow the knee to Allah or else die.
According to those in the know, all of this deal-making has been done without the significant input of Israel, who is first in line to receive the terrifying products of the Iranian nuclear program, should it reach fruition. Likewise, it is relatively common knowledge among those possessing the wherewithal to know that verification of the ten-year pact of non-nuclear weapons production has at best a verification process that makes the many broken deals made with Russia and China over the years of the cold war look like unassailable agreements made with the saints of Heaven.
The Obama Administration had no comparable philosophy within its strategic planning that I’ve been able to detect like that of President Ronald Reagan when making deals with those who want to do away with you –“Trust but verify.”
Mr. Reagan was reportedly a Bible reader and a believer that Bible prophecy is truth from the Creator of all things. He surely had at the center of his thinking in this regard the following admonitions/exhortations: Mark 3:2: No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
Luke 11:21-22: When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.
Benjamin Netanyahu is a practicing Jew, thus bases his beliefs on Old Testament teachings. However, he is said to conduct Bible studies within his home, and includes thoughts from New Testament teachings. Doubtless, he has perused the above Scripture, which, after all, is based upon Old Testament truth. He knows beyond any doubt that you cannot “trust” unless you “verify,” as Ronald Reagan put it. The very fact that Netanyahu came to the U.S. Congress as early as 2015 to lay out the critical nature of dealing with Iran shows (me at least) that the Israeli government is very close to a devastating, preemptive attack on Iranian nuclear production facilities.
Implicit within his many speeches, has been the intimation that he does not trust the U.S. State Department’s internationalist version of how to “verify,” in the matter of dealing with those who want more than anything to completely destroy every Jew on planet earth.
It is just a matter of time, he has forewarned, until not only Israel but all of the west, including the United States, will be in the Iranian nuclear crosshairs. This should be a prognostication that is unnecessary to even verbalize. However, the fact of such a bleak future didn’t seem to register with even now dismissed Secrretary of State Rex Tillerson –although when plainly stated by the Israeli prime minister. This is primarily, apparently, the prime reason Tillerson was fired by President Donald Trump. He continued to make back-room efforts to maintain the same dangerous policy as involved in Kerry’s dealing with the Iranians. with
The Israeli prime minister came down adamantly against the Obama-Kerry deal with the Iranians. He gave clear, unequivocal reasons why he is so opposed to this “bad” deal, as he put it on several occasions during the speech.
The Obama Administration’s intention to lift restrictions after a ludicrous ten-year period of the Iranian’s agreeing to hold off on producing nuclear weaponry was met by Netanyahu’s following response–each point given tremendous applause by most in the U.S. congressional chamber during his powerful address a few years ago.
The Israeli leader said that before lifting those restrictions, the world should demand that Iran do three things. First, stop its aggression against its neighbors in the Middle East. Second, stop supporting terrorism around the world. And third, stop threatening to annihilate my country, Israel, the one and only Jewish state.
There was left little doubt after that speech–directed at the Islamist hordes more than at those in Congress or President Obama at that time– hat Israel’s security is his all-consuming intent. As Iran, with 119 nuclear centrifuges in action, is on the brink of producing weapons that could indeed accomplish their vicious leaders’ goal of destroying the Jewish state, Netanyahu made his own determination unmistakably clear in his warning.
I can guarantee you this, the days when the Jewish people remained passive in the face of genocidal enemies, those days are over.
We are no longer scattered among the nations, powerless to defend ourselves. We restored our sovereignty in our ancient home. And the soldiers who defend our home have boundless courage. For the first time in 100 generations, we, the Jewish people, can defend ourselves.
This is why–this is why, as a prime minister of Israel, I can promise you one more thing: Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand.
Again, we notice with great interest that the prophet Ezekiel foretells that Persia (Iran) will come with the forces of Magog (Russia and others) in an all-out assault on Israel. They do so with conventional forces, not nuclear. They obviously have not nuked Israel by the time they launch this attack. I conclude that somewhere along the line Persia (Iran) has either failed to develop nuclear weapons, or that capability has been neutralized in some way. If they get those weapons they will almost certainly use them, and their first target will almost just as certainly be Israel.
Whether the Israeli Defense Force takes them out–an action that would almost assure Israel would instantly reach Zechariah 12: 1-3 status–or it is an act of God, it appears from Bible prophecy that Iran and their grand plans to use atomic weapons against the Jewish state will never happen.
America is at a crossroad in its dealing with God’s chosen nation. There is no such God-guaranteed prophetic protection given any other nation than Israel.
Our Congress–at least a great portion of that body– responded for the most part with tremendous approval of the things Bibi spoke Tuesday March 3, 2015. I’m encouraged by that response.
