ISRAEL – IRAN: A LONG-RUNNING SHOW
Every six months to twelve months, Iran makes a very public threat to “wipe Israel off the map.”
And every six-twelve months, Israel responds by threatening to bomb Iran.
AND THEN, the rest of the world argues over what it was Iran really meant to say. Was “wipe off the map” just an invention of the Western press?
Both sides get to chip in with their opinions and call the other side names.
Afterwards, it’s time to start a NEW round of the Israel-Iran affair all over again.
In case the reader thinks this is an exaggeration of events, we take this opportunity to offer the following.
US, Israeli and other US-ally intelligence agencies, western politicians, and the western media, have cried wolf about Iran developing nuclear arms since the early 1980s. In 1984, Jane’s Defence Quarterly reported that Iran was “entering the final stage of the production of a bomb.”  In 1995, The New York Times reported that US and Israel officials believed that Iran would have nuclear weapons by the year 2000.  Thirteen years later, Iran still doesn’t have a bomb. “It’s 1938 and Iran is Germany, and it’s racing to arm itself with atomic bombs,” warned Israel’s current prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu in 2006.
NETANYAHU’S “STRIKE ON IRAN” through the years:
May 22, 2015 Israeli defense minister threatens to nuke Iran
April 28, 2015 Israel Will Strike Iran First To Thwart Nuclear Attack
March 23, 2014 Israel threatens to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities
October 15, 2013 – Netanyahu makes the case for preemptive strike on Iran
November 6, 2012 – Israeli PM Netanyahu ready to order strike on Iran
November 2, 2011 – Israel Prime Minister said to favor Attack on Iran
August 3, 2010 – Obama warned that Israel may bomb Iran
April 19, 2009 – What would be the timetable for Israel’s strike on Iran?
August 8, 2008 – Will next Israeli leader attack Iran?
March 4, 2007 – Would Israel attack Iran? Depends on who you ask
These threats and counter-threats go back to roughly 2003. The reader may wonder “What happened before 2003?”
Before that, Israel was occupied with threatening and being threatened by IRAQ and Saddam Hussein. Iran had to wait its turn. Before 2002, IRAQ served the same purpose IRAN does in 2016.
2000: Saddam threatens Israel
After the USA took out Saddam Hussein in 2003, the Middle East needed another villain to pair with Israel.
Enter Iran and the “mad mullahs.”
Now, this writer is not claiming that Israel will NEVER attack Iran–in fact, it’s highly likely that an Israeli or Iranian attack will be one of the triggers of the rapidly-approaching World War–only that this sort of rhetoric has been flying in the Corporate Media for a long, long time.
Maybe the strategy is to “cry wolf!” so many times, the world will be lulled to sleep about a possible Israeli attack on Iran? If so, how many years of crying “wolf” will be sufficient?
Or it may just be the case that “crying wolf!” is in the script.
The really absurd part is that it was the United States in 1976 that pushed nuclear energy on Iran. In 2000 the CIA gave the Iranian government (slightly flawed) plans to build a nuclear bomb. In 2003, Iran proposed negotiations with the United States with everything on the table, including its nuclear technology, and the United States refused.
—Why Not Attack Iran?
ISRAEL-IRAN: THE BIGGER PICTURE
“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed,”
“that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:”
“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
In the times in which we live, everything world leaders do is directed toward ushering in the one-world government: a dream of the world’s wicked since the flood wiped out their first “paradise.”
“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.”
“The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”
When the world’s leaders speak to the masses, what they say and what they mean are two entirely different things.
This applies to U.S. presidents as well–ESPECIALLY U.S. presidents.
When leaders speak of “freedom” and “liberty” they mean freedom and liberty FROM THE RESTRAINTS OF GOD ALMIGHTY and His Son, Jesus Christ.
We have confidence because freedom is the permanent hope of mankind, the hunger in dark places, the longing of the soul. When our Founders declared a new order of the ages; when soldiers died in wave upon wave for a union based on liberty; when citizens marched in peaceful outrage under the banner “Freedom Now” – they were acting on an ancient hope that is meant to be fulfilled.
—George W. Bush, Second Inaugural Address 2005
Bush’s “ancient hope” goes way, way, way back: all the way back to when God destroyed worldwide wickedness with the flood.

So the Israel-Iran drama is only a part of a larger end times show. At some point, it’s reasonable to expect that this show will move from its long-standing war of words to an actual shooting war.
At that point, it will likely involve not only Israel and Iran but the USA and others as well.
Still, at the end of the day, believers are commanded to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.”
Jerusalem will only have peace upon the return of Jesus.
Every day brings the world–and the reader–one day closer to the climax of human history.
Whose side will the reader be on?
“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
“Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.”
