Nuclear Iran

YNet News (Israel) reported today on Iran's latest nuclear announcement.

Iran is now a "nuclear power," its President, Mahmoud Ahamdinejad, delcared Wednesday, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency .

During a speech delivered in the Western Iranian province of Javanroud, Ahmadinejad said: " The Islamic Republic of Iran is now a nuclear power, thanks to the hard work of the Iranian people and authorities."

Ahmadinejad was also reported to have announced that "Iranian young scientists reached the zenith of science and technology and gained access to the nuclear fuel cycle without the help of big powers."

The Iranian president began the speech by saying that "the powerful Iranian nation resists bullying powers and will defend its rights, including the right to pursue peaceful nuclear technology," the IRNA said.

Of course they'll "pursue peaceful nuclear technology." On their way to pursuing non-peaceful nuclear technology.

But Ahmadinejad was having a busy, talkative day. Agence France Press reported today on another of the Iranian President's speeches.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has predicted that Britian, Israel and the United States would eventually disappear from the world like the Egyptian pharaonic kings.

"The oppressive powers will disappear while the Iranian people will stay. Any power that is close to God will survive while the powers who are far from God will disappear like the pharaohs," he said Wednesday, according to Iranian news agencies.

"Today, it is the United States, Britain and the Zionist regime which are doomed to disappear as they have moved far away from the teachings of God," he said in a speech in the western town of Javanroud.

"It is a divine promise."

No, the divine promise is that when all the world's countries under nutjob leaders like Ahmadinejad, and all the other countries too afraid to oppose them, attack Israel en masse, God (not Allah) will miraculously save Israel.

That day is not yet here, but if Ahmadinejad gets his way, it could be coming soon. Let's hope the world's leaders, starting with our own, have the courage to stop this fanatic while they can.

I couldn't have said it better.

My devotions end with a plead to awaken those leaders able to come to the side of Israel when "the end" comes because this Persian nut is hell bent on bringing it on.

And yes, our Lord will intervene and save His nation.

Great post Skye!

From Ahamdinejad's mouth to God's ears.

I can think of nothing farther from God than the hatred and barbarism that rules the Middle East.

I know that everything - from elections to world events - are part of God's plan. And while I give Him advice every morning - you know, about how I think things should play out - I figure He is going to do things His way.

How do atheists sleep at night?
