Secretary of State John Kerry Warns if Israel Strikes Iran it would be an “Enormous Mistake”
The alarm of concern being sounded for the safety and defense of Israel and the Jewish people is continuing to be rung loudly for all to hear. Secretary of State John Kerry recently defended the nuclear agreement with Iran when NBC’s Matt Lauer pressed him about the possibility of Israel having to defend herself. In response, Kerry stated, “I think that would be an enormous mistake; a huge mistake with grave consequences for Israel and for the region and I don’t think it’s necessary.” Lauer continued to press the perspective of Israel defending herself asking, “If the Israelis are not convinced and they take that action, where would it leave us; would we support Israel; would this treaty go up in smoke? How did Secretary of State Kerry respond? By asking how Iran would respond and how that would affect Iran. Not only is the reality of this agreement of grave concern, but it is additionally concerning when people ask about Israel having to defend themselves because of such agreements and the leadership in America immediately defends the outcome of Iran.
The perspective of Iran towards America is not new news. While the leadership of America is defending this agreement with Iran, Iran is shouting and chanting, “Death to America”. Does this make sense? When the Secretary was again defending the agreement before both parties in a hearing by the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Kerry stated, “If we walk away, we walk away alone. Our partners are not going to be with us.” When Israel is reportedly 100% against this agreement, the question we have to ask ourselves is who are the partners that Secretary of State John Kerry is referring to? It should not matter who is with us or not, as long as we are with Israel.
The weapons that are currently being developed in Iran are not only for Israel, but also for America. In Iran, Israel is described as “the little Satan” and America is described as “the big Satan”. How can we truly believe that an agreement with a nation with such views can turn out good in any way? The events that are unfolding before our eyes are mirroring what took place in 1938 during the Munich Agreement. For the cause of peace, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain met with Adolf Hitler that resulted in the beginning of World War II and the deaths of millions of human lives; 6 million of those were Jews. Winston Churchill responded to Chamberlain’s actions by stating, “You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war.”
We do not have to respond in the same manner. Many have said that history repeats itself. Often times, this is because we do not know history. This does not apply for us today; we have the knowledge of this history and the knowledge of the outcome that resulted in World War II. Joel 3:2 says, “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.” Before the eyes of the Lord, it matters how we, individually, respond to Israel, or how we don’t respond. We can avoid the regrets of tomorrow by doing what is right today by standing in defense of Israel. Hear the full report of what is taking place, and so much more.
