Iran’s contempt for Israel – and the United States – is no secret. However, their latest show of bravado begs answers.
According to Al Arabia’s English site, Ahmad Karimpour, a senior adviser to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ elite unit al-Quds Force, stated the following in reference to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Kahmenei.
“If the Supreme Leader’s orders [are] to be executed, with the abilities and the equipment at our disposal, we will raze the Zionist regime in less than eight minutes.”
So, what orders have been given, and what abilities and equipment do they have at their disposal that could destroy Israel [the Zionist regime] in less than eight minutes?
Are they speaking of unleashing their full arsenal of ballistic weapons against Israel?
That seems foolhardy – and highly unlikely, especially since it would eliminate Iran’s ability to defend themselves from other potential regional or international threats against their national security.
Do they already have nuclear weapon capabilities, which would be in direct in violation of the recent agreement between Iran, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China, Russia, and Germany?
Is the latest Iranian claim empty bluster?
Can the international community afford to ignore such brazen threats?
So many questions…
Is anyone surprised by the mounting coalition of nations in opposition to Israel? They shouldn’t be.
A careful reading of Ezekiel 38 and 39 offers a fairly vivid picture of those opposed to Israel “in the latter days.” Iran is included in the list as Persia. Although they are mighty in number, they get routed by God in defense of Israel.
