The Iranian government is reminiscent of “dark regimes of the past” that tried to wipe out the Jews and then conquer the world, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday in Moscow, vowing to deny Iran nuclear weapons.
“The Iranians deny our past and repeat their commitment to wipe the State of Israel off the map. This reminds us of the dark regimes of the past that plotted against us first and then against all of humanity,” Netanyahu said in an address to Russian Jewish community leaders.
Efforts to portray the Islamic Republic as a peace-seeking nation are propaganda and do not show “the real Iran,” he said, noting that Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khameini on Wednesday “called Jews ‘rabid dogs’ and said that they were not human. The public responded to him with calls of ‘Death to America! Death to Israel!’ Doesn’t this sound familiar to you?”
“They must not have nuclear weapons — and I promise you that they will not have nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu said.
On Thursday, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said that Khamenei, “someone who uses the words of Goebbels and Hitler when talking about the Jews,” has shown that Iran “certainly does not aim to acquire nuclear power for peaceful purposes.”
Liberman called on the representatives of the P5+1 countries to “pay attention” to Khamenei’s words. ”The speech by Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, is the true face of the Iranian regime, not the false representation that [Iranian President Hassan] Rouhani and his people are showing the world,” Liberman said.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is determined to prevent Iran from fielding nuclear weapons, but warned in an interview with German newspaper Bild that the Islamic Republic already possesses enough low-enriched uranium for five atomic bombs.
From the moment it decides to do so, Iran would need only weeks to further enrich that uranium to weapons-grade material.
And, Netanyahu noted, Iran has already built intercontinental missiles capable of delivering its new weapons to Israel, Germany and the rest of Europe.
With the threat so severe and so imminent, Netanyahu vowed to go down in history as a leader "who did everything possible to protect the Jewish people and prevent a repeat of the horrors of the past," despite what others might think of him at present.
Regarding the deal being discussed by Western leaders in Geneva that would allow Iran to keep its uranium enrichment centrifuges, Netanyahu said this is "a terrible historical mistake."
A former senior US official on Thursday used tough rhetoric in warning the Obama administration to employ vigilance in engaging Iran in the ongoing nuclear negotiations with world powers.
“The Iranians are known as great rug merchants, not for nothing,” the 92-year-old former US secretary of state George Shultz told the BBC in an interview. “They’re good at this business of smiling, encouraging you on and then cutting your throat, so you have to be tough-minded, you have to be realistic."
Shultz added that Iran is “a pretty tough customer” and the world’s largest state-supporter of terrorism, including support for Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Shultz, the former US secretary of state, also published an op-ed in theWall Street Journal on Thursday in which he cautioned the US against rushing into an agreement with Tehran. “The guy who is anxious for a deal will get his head handed to him,” said the Reagan-era diplomat, who negotiated nuclear nonproliferation with the Soviets.
The former secretary of state pointed to Iran’s “increasing nuclear capacity and its unacceptable behavior” as points of comparison to nuclear negotiations with the Soviets.
The rhetoric on both sides now has sunk to a new low and the vitriol is spilling over with name calling, jabs and public displays of distaste for each other. While Obama and his Islamic infiltrated government are doing all they can to buy time for Iran to complete their nuclear preps, they have also been stalling Israel and the world claiming just the opposite. How Progressive of them – how very, very evil.
The thin veneer of diplomacy between the US and Israel is cracking and their long friendship is cratering, all because of Marxists and Islamists, who America knowingly let take control. Now these same players are on the verge of destroying America without a shot fired and are doing their damnedest to get Israel wiped off the map. America has always been a friend and staunch ally to God’s chosen people — now we have turned our back and are actively arming her enemies. Not to stand, is to stand and we will pay a monstrous price for this betrayal. A sharp division lays between the American people who support Israel and our Marxist President who bears them ill will:
Rumor has it that Obama and Netanyahu are no longer speaking. Both sides deny it, but I absolutely believe it. Obama’s minions are saying if a deal is not reached (which in essence gives everything to Iran and nothing to Israel), that war will follow.
Do you really think with the hate that Iran and the rest of the Islamic world have for Israel, that when they get nukes they won’t use them? No one is that stupid. So, the ones supporting the ‘deal of the century’ are the ones who hate Israel and want to see her annihilated. Et tu America?
Note to Israel: Obama is not your friend and he never was. He has cost you dearly in the time needed to take down your enemy before they strike you. It is to America’s great shame that you now stand alone. But you will never be alone as long as God is with you. Your enemies will be the ones to pay a heavy price in the end.
Taking a move from the Buzzfeed playbook, a Twitter feed associated with Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Thursday morning shared a photo of an IDF canine unit with his quote from Wednesday that “Israel is the sinister, unclean, rabid dog of the region.”
Using language that Iran analyst Arash Karami called harsher than usual, Khamenei had told an assembly of tens of thousands of Basij militiamen on Wednesday that the Jewish state was ready to fall and that the leader of the “Zionist regime,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was the “rabid dog of the region.”
“The (Israeli) Zionist regime is a regime whose pillars are extremely shaky and is doomed to collapse,” he said, according to French news agency AFP. “Any phenomenon that is created by force cannot endure.”
Khamenei’s comments on Wednesday prompted rebuke by France, one of the six states engaged in negotiations with Iran over its illicit nuclear program. A French government spokeswoman said Wednesday that President Francois Hollande considered Khamenei’s comments “unacceptable” and that they complicated negotiations.
Spokeswoman Najat Vallaud-Belkacem told reporters that Hollande’s cabinet discussed the Iran nuclear dossier just hours before negotiations between Iran and six world powers resumed talks in Geneva.
She said, however, that France still hopes for a deal and its position has not changed in the talks.
Yikes Scott.....brother, you have been doing some reading this fine morning. Just Wow! Your basic blog is chuck full of relevant data but the links at the bottom are really eye opening.
If anyone truly wants to wash the sleep from their eyes this fine morning and do a gut check, read the last link above....

Re: "Veneer Cracking, The US and Israel"
"I will not keep silent" Isaiah 62:1"
Though God is in complete control, and is not surprised by the choices this US administration is demonstrating, we may all be held "individually" accountable for Genesis 12:3.
Beyond "praying for the peace of Jerusalem," at this critical time, if you would like to let your voice be heard, you can send letters to your congressmen demanding action.
If you visit the website below (Christians United For Israel) you will be prompted to give some information & then taken to a screen whereby the state you live in is chosen. The end result is that they will send a letter to your congressmen with your name on it.

Thanks for the link, Harness.
God bless !
Good morning all, I've had a question on my mind now for some time. Now that President Obama has taken your nation to where it is today, aren't Americans asking about the legitimacy of the Democratic Party as a genuine and respected player in American politics? Are Obama's philosophies representative of the Party and vice versa?
My thinking is after all is said and done as a citizen I'd be demanding the dismantling of the party!
You guys probably don't think like that so if I've offended your system please forgive me.
Blessings guys and enjoy the rest of your wait for our Lord.
DDU, the people are asleep and are duped by the main stream media. It is akin to the frog placed in a pot of water with the heat gradually turned up until the frog has been boiled to death and never jumps out of the water. It has taken place so gradually that inch by inch our freedoms have been removed without people noticing. As Wendy says in the police state article people think they are still free because we hold elections. That is not the case at all and she makes four good point why we are no longer free.
No offense taken! There are as many different responses to your question as there are opinions out there, the following is just my own opinion…
Now that we are into Obama's second term we are just "beginning" to see the tide turn (somewhat) with respect to Obama's popularity. What you probably don't see, the way we see it here, is that Obama has had our public media in his back pocket -- they have not held him accountable for ANYTHING he has done. Due to his healthcare policies becoming such a fiasco, for the first time, we are starting to see some among the major news media, and some in his own party, staring to question him. His popularity is at a new low right now.
To answer your question, there are some in the Democratic party who don't think Obama is "left wing" enough. Oh yes, if you ask those of us on the right, & some in his own party, we definitely would/will hold Obama accountable. There is, also though, a struggle going on within the Republican party right now. Where all chips will fall remains to be seen.
The bottom line is the majority of our population is becoming more and more secular, caring only about physical/temporal things. The candidate that promises to meet those needs is being elected. I can't stress this enough because it's entirely possible we could elect a very humanistic Republican who might have patriotic values & our country could end up as bad, or worse, off than we are now. I think it's important to keep in mind we have Christian brothers & sisters who vote Democratic. We all vote our conscience.
It remains to be seen if, during next year's mid-term congressional elections, if the congress will swing back to a Republican majority. By that time, who knows what will have happened? In the meantime, God knows all about what's happening here, and He has a bigger "story" going on. It will all serve to His glory in the end.
Yes my thinking isn't deep enough. Would I be right in saying that the political party's are just vehicles that a more sinister body of thugs are using to implement their agenda?
Thanks Harness, I appreciate your answer. Politics isn't the answer to a countries freedoms I guess....spiritually speaking. And what you say is eye opening for me in that trusting in a party to bring about the right flavour of politics to suit the country as whole along constitutional lines isn't guaranteed by both sides. I've always thought the republicans were Christian!
Re: "more sinister body of thugs"
Well yes, is you want to give it human form, the conspiracy theory is alive & well in the name of George Soros (lots on the record about him). But if you want to go even beyond that into the spiritual realm-- the name is Satan & his demonic angels.
I need to be careful in my wording harness. Watered down I mean the devil's human minions!
Ah yes, "minions" -- great choice of word! (Actually, you made you look it up) :)
One footnote to your comment…
"I've always thought the republicans were Christian!"
In our two party system typically the Republicans attract the conservative base, i.e, Christians. So, you're reasoning there is correct. At the last Democratic Convention, to nominate Obama, they actually voted to remove the words "in God we trust" out of their party platform. Amazingly, Obama himself told them to put it back in (I believe he did that for "face" value only). And, of course, we see so many biblically based traditional values/beliefs being eroded at the hands of the Dems. But my point about the parties is that they are both made up fallen human beings. Politics is just a means to an end, the goal itself, though, as Christians, is Christ Himself.
Enjoyed talking w/you.
And yet, despite all this, it is NOT time for the end yet. Dow just
closed ABOVE 16 000 for the first
time ever. when will it stop ??
short term daily wave counts show one more NEW HIGH on FRI, and that
But this market has fooled me before.
we will see.
One thing serious though is the FACT that once DEC comes, we are
down to 4 months until the start
of Daniel's 70th week.
