We're almost ready to see the issue between Iran and Israel reach the final conclusion. Either Iran will develop a nuclear weapon or Israel will have the capability destroyed or interrupted by launching action against Iran's facilities. There aren't really any other scenarios in play. We know from biblical prophecy that Israel is not destroyed, as they would be from a nuclear weapon, therefore one could conclude that Israel will indeed take some action against Iran. In the aftermath of such action, the safe bet would be that the radical Islamic regions surrounding Israel will become highly inflamed, leading to the prophetic fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39, also known as the battle of Gog-MaGog. Of course Isaiah 17 would come into play as well, most likely preceding Gog-MaGog. It also seems obvious that once Israel takes out Iran's nuclear facilities, Russia will also become involved as they not only have mutual defense agreements with Iran, but they also have many workers at these nuclear facilities.
We are most definitely approaching this tipping point very rapidly:
According to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran and the P5+1 will begin drafting a nuclear agreement in Geneva on Friday. US officials said Secretary of State John Kerry will fly to Geneva on Friday to participate in the nuclear negotiations — a last minute decision that suggests a deal could be imminent.
Tehran’s chief nuclear negotiator, Abbas Araqchi, told Iranian state TV that the six — the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany — “clearly said that they accept the proposed framework by Iran.” He later told CNN that he thinks negotiators at the table are now “ready to start drafting” an accord that outlines specific steps to be taken.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday “not to rush to sign” a deal with Iran over its controversial nuclear program.
“I met Secretary Kerry right before he [left] to Geneva. I reminded him that he said that no deal is better than a bad deal. And the deal that is being discussed in Geneva right now is a bad deal. Iran is not required to take apart even one centrifuge. But the international community is relieving sanctions on Iran for the first time after many years,” he said.
“Iran gets everything that it wanted at this stage and pays nothing. And this is when Iran is under severe pressure. I urge Secretary Kerry not to rush to sign, to wait, to reconsider, to get a good deal. But this is a bad deal, a very, very bad deal. It’s the deal of a century for Iran; it’s a very dangerous and bad deal for peace and the international community,” Netanyahu added.
Earlier Friday, Netanyahu told Kerry that Israel was not bound by any nuclear deal the West makes with Iran on its controversial nuclear program.
Secretary of State John Kerry appears to have shed the last vestige of a U.S. honest broker role in pursuing an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord.
While conducting shuttle diplomacy with stops in Israel, the West and Jordan, Kerry unleashed a torrent of sharply critical remarks about Israel and its government.
If current peace negotiations fall apart, Kerry warned Israelis that the result would be a third intifada of terrorist attacks against Israel.
But that was just for starters.
In addition, Kerry said, Israel would be more internationally isolated, there would be increased calls for boycotts and divestment from Israel, and the advent of a Palestinian leadership committed to violence.
For good , Kerry also denounced Jewish settlements in the West Bankas "illegitimate" and called for an end of the presence of "IDF soldiers perpetually in the West Bank."
Kerry's remarks fit perfectly with the Palestinian playbook. His anti-Israel outbursts were bound to play well in Ramallah and Amman. But in Israel, they left a bitter impression of an determined to score points with Palestinians and Arab regimes at Israel's existential expense.
In response to Kerry, Israeli officials said they won't bow to his "intimidation tactics." They also warned that Kerry's remarks will harm the peace process by encouraging the Palestinians not to compromise. With Kerry on their side, why should they?
Obama's successful visit to Israel earlier this year was just torpedoed by his secretary of state, who presumably wasn't just speaking for himself, but also for his boss.
