USA Senate Passes New Sanctions Against Iran

Naqsh-e Jahan Square, Iran


The Senate of the USA has decided to send another message to Iran:

May 21, 2012

The Senate backed new sanctions on Iran in a voice vote Monday, adding new pressure on the country over its nuclear program.

“With these new sanctions, as negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program are renewed this week in Baghdad, we are reminding Iran’s military and political leaders that they must make a clear choice,” Senate Banking Committee Chairman Tim Johnson, D-S.D., said in a written statement. “They can come clean on their nuclear program, and end the suppression of their people and stop supporting terrorist activities around the globe.  Or they can continue to face sustained multilateral economic and diplomatic pressure, and deepen their international isolation.”

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, however, cautioned that the legislation alone will not do enough to stop Iran from pursuing nuclear weapons.

Iran wishes to become the leader of the Islamic world, and that is probably why it has pursued a program related to the development of nuclear and other weapons.

The USA, Israel, and others have stated that this is not acceptable, and have made military and other threats to Iran.

If Iran is further along on its quest for military power than many think, it may ignore the threats from the USA and others.

Because I do not believe that it will be the final King of the South of Bible prophecy (cf. Daniel 11:4-43), I have tended to believe that Iran may somehow get “neutralized” before this final king rises up. A serious regional conflict in the Middle East may neutralize Iran and neutralize much of its influence. And Syria (Isaiah 17:1) and parts of Lebanon and others may be involved.

The final King of the South will be a confederation of primarily Arabic nations of North Africa and the Middle East (the confederation of the final King of the South may go from around Western Sahara and/or Mauritania to perhaps Afghanistan), with Turkey involved, and with likely some support from Iran, and perhaps some coordination with further eastern nations like Pakistan and Indonesia. And if there is a significant regional war in the Middle East this year involving Iran, this may serve as a catalyst for the Islamic confederation to form.

Watch! (Mark 13:37)
