You’re Either With Us or Against Us

Jesus said, “You’re either with me or against me.” The same is true for the relationship between Israel and the United States when it comes to handling a nuclear Iran. Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak has pled with the United States to assist Israel before time runs out.

President Barack Hussein Obama, considered by many to be a closet Muslim after his time spent in Indonesia, ordered U.S. forces into Libya when the freedom fighters asked for help. That was a good decision. We eliminated a dictator. Now the President must make a more important decision to help our closest ally in the Middle East, Israel, which has asked him for help.

A nuclear Iran would encourage other Middle Eastern countries–such as Egypt and Turkey–to develop nuclear programs. More importantly, Iran could treat an Israeli attack on Hezbollah as an attack on Iran and could retaliate with nuclear weapons. Or, without warning, Iran could fire nuclear missiles into Israel.

Iran already has enough low- and medium-enriched uranium for a small nuclear arsenal, stored in bunkers, says Barak. The Israeli defense minister said that Iran’s activities have “no other explanation” than the attempt to manufacture nuclear weapons

Iran will likely retaliate if the U.S. uses military force against it. The President now must choose  the lesser of two evils: To take action now and avert a nuclear Iran, with a Hezbollah attack on Israel likely; or to take action later when Iran has nuclear weapons, and the retaliation would be considerably more devastating.

We need a Reagan-like President whose firm promise to use force unless certain demands are met, will be taken seriously. Washington’s talk of more meetings and more sanctions is valueless. The President has to step forth and lay down a deadline for Iran to back off from its nuclear program, or face the consequences–meaning military force. There is no other option.

 

 

Isaiah 64:8-9

Isaiah 64:8-9
But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.

Iran Threatens World Security

Hello world! I’m Day Williams. I practice law in Carson City, Nevada. I have a wide range of interests. For this blog,”Day’s World,” I plan to concentrate on international and national matters.

I love my country, the United States of America. I also love Israel, God’s land, the land for his chosen people, the Jews. I support the Jews and Israel. To that end, my biggest concern is Israel’s security.

The “Arab Spring” deposed dictators and resulted in a radical Muslim string of lands arrayed against Israel. It’s strange that Muslims regard Abraham, Moses and Jesus–all Jews–as prophets, yet they hate the Jews. But Islam often lacks a rational basis.

The biggest threat to Israel–and by extension, world security–is the Islamic Republic of Iran, led by Ali Khamenei and  President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. These people say the Holocaust is a myth. President Ahmadinejad refuses to recognize Israel as a legitimate state, and he urges the Palestinians to continue their armed resistance to Israel. In 2008, he said, “You should know that the criminal and terrorist Zionist regime which has 60 years of plundering, aggression and crimes in its file has reached the end of its work and will soon disappear off the geographical scene.” Another charming statement is as follows: “They say it is not possible to have a world without the United States and Zionism. But you know that this is a possible goal and slogan.”

Meanwhile, Iran intends to back up her words with nuclear weapons. Despite sanctions, Iran has plowed ahead with its nuclear program. Some nuclear scientists in Iran have been killed. Whether the CIA and the Mossad are behind those assassinations, I do not know. I do know it has not been enough.

I have no doubt that Iran intends to manufacture nuclear weapons and use them against Israel. We can quibble for months about what President Ahmadinejad’s words mean, but as we quibble, time is running out. The more time we give Iran, the more secure will be her nuclear program. Iran has prudently scattered nuclear facilities around Iran, and has placed facilities underground. Iran is prepared to meet an attack with a barrage of missiles and other weapons. The sad, sharp truth is that the sooner the U.S. co-ordinates an attack with Israel, the better it will be for the whole world.
