You can't kill a rattlesnake by cutting off its rattles, which quickly grow back. Instead, you have to cut off its head. Likewise, terrorism cannot be defeated by continuously striking at its tail, Iran's proxy terrorist organizations, like Hamas and Hezbollah, but only by striking its head, Iran itself, which is the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world today. Unfortunately, our naive government keeps trying to strike a deal with Iran, while Iran masterminds and funds terrorist attacks all over our world, such as the unprecedented one on Israel this past Saturday, as well as continues its mad dash to acquire a nuclear weapon.
Shiite Muslims, like the Iranians, are awaiting the 12th Imam—the Mahdi or Muslim messiah. They believe that when he comes, he will lead them to bring the whole world to its knees in submission to Allah, the god of Islam. Many present-day Shiites also believe that America and Israel are the chief obstacles preventing their Mahdi from coming. Therefore, it is their religious duty to remove these obstacles from the face of the earth and prepare the way for their Mahdi to come and usher in the long awaited utopia of his worldwide caliphate.
In light of the above, we need to remember that it is Shiite Muslims, like the Iranians, who gave our world its suicide bombers. Iran’s late Ayatollah Khomeini, taught his countrymen that "the purest joy in Islam is to kill and to be killed for Allah." According to the late Ayatollah Kkomeini, suicide bombing is the swiftest and surest way for a Muslim to gain entrance into everlasting paradise. It was Islam's founder, the Prophet Mohammed, who taught that all jihad (holy war) martyrs instantly entered at the instant of their death the Martyr’s House, which the prophet promised to be the best house in all of paradise. According to Mohammed, the Martyr's House is made of palaces of pearl and mansions of crystal, sapphire and diamonds. In each mansion there are 70 houses. In each house there are 70 rooms. In each room there is a table with 70 different kinds of food and a bed with 70 sheets of different colors. And on each sheet is a virgin waiting to have sex with the jihad martyr forever.
A few years ago, a former president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, publicly proclaimed that Iran would wipe Israel off the map the moment it acquired a nuclear weapon. When a reporter asked President Ahmadinejad whether or not he understood that a nuclear strike against Israel would result in a retaliatory strike against Iran, ole "Mad Hatter" Mahmoud responded: "What do we care? We'll be in paradise and they'll be in hell." Obviously, Ahmadinejad, or as I preferred to call him, "I'm A Nut Job," believes, like many present-day Iranians, that nuclear war is the ultimate suicide bombing and a swift and sure passage into paradise for the Iranian people.
When the mad mullahs of Iran promise to “wipe Israel off of the map” as soon as they get their hands on a nuclear weapon, they’re not kidding. Nevertheless, the world doesn’t get it. Even our own government has deluded itself into believing that our war on terror has nothing to do with religion; in spite of the fact that it has everything to do with religion. The mad mullahs of Iran actually believe it’s their religious duty to launch a nuclear weapon against Israel. Therefore, no arm-twisting or trinket-rewarding diplomacy is going to slow them down in their mad dash toward nuclear armament.
Do you remember our policy of deterrence in the "good old days" of the Cold War? It was called MAD—Mutual Assured Destruction. We knew, as did the Soviets, that a nuclear strike by either of us would result in the nuclear annihilation of both of us. Thus, we stood toe to toe all of those years without our world ever being enveloped in a giant mushroom cloud. The Soviets might have been our enemies, but at least they were sane. The Iranians, on the other hand, are crazy. If these nuts get their hands on a nuke, they'll consider it their religious duty to use it, not to mention the surest way to secure for themselves an eternal reservation in the Martyr's House. No wonder the Apostle Paul predicted that earth's last days would be the most perilous [dangerous] time this fallen planet has ever known (2 Timothy 3:1).
The ancient Prophet Zechariah predicted: "Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it."
It looks like the Biblically predicted “cup of trembling” is now being put to the lips of our end-time world. Israel, the world’s hotspot and flashpoint, is, as the Bible predicts, becoming a most burdensome problem to world leaders, who foolishly feign to negotiate peace in the Middle East, between insane Iranians, who believe it is their religious obligation to obliterate Israel, and Israel’s Zionists, who believe they must wipe out Iran before it acquires nuclear weapons to wipe out them.
No wonder Joe Biden was nowhere to be seen yesterday, in spite of war breaking out in the Middle East. I suspect our basement hiding president will hunker down in the White House basement more than ever now, since our world, under his watch, has become such a scary place!
