The script is very familiar: a maniacal nation leader is hell-bent (literally) on mass murder against people who he and a few million others deem unworthy of living (the people of Israel) and publicly states his ethnic cleansing intentions on what seems like a weekly basis. While our new leading character Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad comes out with a new verbal assault on Israel with alarming frequency, the passive United Nations (UN) wring their hands and continue to attempt to “negotiate” with him so that he may see the error of his ways, and dissuade him from continuing to develop Iran's nuclear weapons capabilities.
Though somewhat religiously biased and irreverent columnist Charles Krathhammer I believe accurately conveys the dangerous stakes at play:
Everyone knows where Iran's nuclear weapons will be aimed. Everyone knows they will be put on Shahab rockets that have been modified so they can now reach Israel. And everyone knows that if the button is ever pushed, it will be the end of Israel.
However, to all true Christians remember the following words of Jesus in Luke 12:4-5: “My friends, don't be afraid of people. They can kill you, but after that, there is nothing else they can do. God is the one you must fear. Not only can he take your life, but he can throw you into hell. God is certainly the one you should fear!” (CEV)
