Iran deal an ‘exemplar’ or leading to ‘collapse’? Iran continues to state it will destroy Israel.


The US Ambassador to the United Nations is touting the nuclear deal with Iran, while a former presidential candidate says it is exacerbating the collapse of the USA’s global leadership:

September 25, 2015

The Iran nuclear deal is a prize for the champions of diplomacy – an “exemplar,” in the words of the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, which “heartened” the rest of the world. …

A band of Democrats emerged from the Iran process beating the drum for diplomacy in the name of strengthening the U.S. relationship with new and existing allies. Many senators pointed to briefings and conversations with the P5+1 foreign ambassadors who brokered the deal as pivotal to realizing that without international partners, the U.S. would be left, weakened, on its own.

For some of those Democrats, the deal’s success is a cue to aim even higher.

“This multilateral framework can serve as a model of how the U.S. should lead, not only in the Middle East, but around the world,” Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) said in a speech at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace late last week. …

Republicans warned that the United States made a bad deal not only because they don’t trust Iran, but they’re also wary of negotiating with countries like Russia, China, and even Europe — arguing their interests run counter to the U.S.when it comes to Iran’s future.

The Iran deal “will likely exacerbate the collapse of America’s global influence that is taking place under this administration,” Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) wrote in a recent op-ed in the Arizona Daily Star.

In last week’s GOP presidential debate, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) warned that Obama “wants to use the United Nations to bind the United States and take away our sovereignty.”

It should be noted that leaders in Iran have repeatedly called for the elimination of the tiny nation of Israel.  Here are two report that demonstrate this:

September 24, 2015

Nuclear deal or no nuclear deal with President Obama, Iran says Israel will be destroyed.

Ataollah Salehi, commander of Iran’s army, told Iran’s state-run news agency on Tuesday Israel’s fate is sealed.

“Israel only barks, no matter how much weapons are given to [it], we are going to destroy them, we will promise this task will be done,” the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday. “We are glad that we are in the forefront of executing supreme leader’s order to destroy the Zionist regime. They have been hit by those supported by us [Iran] even though they have not confronted us directly; if they confront us directly they will be destroyed.”

Saeed Ghasseminejad, an Iran expert and associate fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told the paper Iran will become more aggressive because it sees the Obama administration as weak.

“Iran’s military establishment neither fears nor respects the U.S. anymore,” Ghasseminejad told the Washington Free Beacon. “The U.S. faces a credibility problem in the region; the problem will be there as long as President Obama is in office.”

September 2015

(CNN) Israel will not exist in another quarter century, Iran’s supreme leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said during a speech this week in Tehran, state-run media report.

“I’d say (to Israel) that they will not see (the end) of these 25 years,” the Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Khamenei as saying Wednesday at the Imam Khomeini Mosque.

Khamenei raised the issue while discussing the recent nuclear deal between Iran and the so-called P5+1 — the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, China and Russia…

Some of the agreement’s measures will remain in place for 25 years. Seizing on that time frame, Khamenei noted that some observers say it should allay Israel’s fears about a nuclear Iran during that time.

“God willing, there will be no such thing as a Zionist regime in 25 years. Until then, struggling, heroic and jihadi morale will leave no moment of serenity for Zionists,” he said…

The reality is that after Iran gets much, or all of its frozen assets, it will have little incentive to comply with the deal. But Iran could use some of that money to trade with the Europeans as well as others. Some believe that Iran will be better able to fund terrorism with the funds that are expected to be released. Israel realizes this.

The nuclear deal also lifts most trade sanctions against Iran, which should also assist it financially.  Iran already expects to greatly increase its oil exports by the end of 2015:

September 25, 2015

Iran sees its oil exports rising by 500,000 barrels per day by late November or early December much sooner than some in the West expect, a senior energy official says. 

Director of investment at the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) Ali Kardor said Iran also expects to add 1 million barrels a day to its current exports by the spring of 2016.

In August, Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh ordered directors of oilfield operating and terminals companies as well as NIOC international affairs to be prepared for raising production by 500,000 bpd.

Another official said at the time that a test operation of major oilfields for stepped-up recovery carried out last year would be repeated on all deposits.

“We are ready,” Kardor said, quoted by the Wall Street Journal, on the sidelines of the second Iran-Europe Forum which opened in Geneva Thursday and continues on Friday. …

Kardor said more exports to Asian countries like China and South Korea will begin sooner than some in the West expect, adding the two countries have announced readiness to increase imports.

By exporting more, Iran will likely end up with more money.  Money it will use for its objectives–many of which are militaristic.

Iran wants to eliminate Israel and the USA. Iran’s top leader clearly has personally indicated that (see also After deal, Iran’s Khamenei calls USA ‘arrogant’ and ‘the real terrorists;’ he also says Iran will not change its policies in Middle East).  Some believe Iran may use electromagnetic pulse weapons–including potentially using them against the USA (see Maloof: America unprepared for devastating EMP ‘Black Swan’).

Might Iran’s attitude get it involved in military action against the Jewish state?

The Bible shows that it possible that God will allow Iran to strike the nation of Israel.  Notice what the Prophet Isaiah was inspired to write:

1 The burden against the Valley of Vision.

What ails you now, that you have all gone up to the housetops, 2 You who are full of noise, A tumultuous city, a joyous city? Your slain men are not slain with the sword, Nor dead in battle. 3 All your rulers have fled together; They are captured by the archers. All who are found in you are bound together; They have fled from afar. 4 Therefore I said, “Look away from me, I will weep bitterly; Do not labor to comfort me Because of the plundering of the daughter of my people.”

5 For it is a day of trouble and treading down and perplexity By the Lord God of hosts In the Valley of Vision — Breaking down the walls And of crying to the mountain. 6 Elam bore the quiver With chariots of men and horsemen, And Kir uncovered the shield. 7 It shall come to pass that your choicest valleys Shall be full of chariots,And the horsemen shall set themselves in array at the gate.

8 He removed the protection of Judah. You looked in that day to the armor of the House of the Forest; 9 You also saw the damage to the city of David, That it was great; And you gathered together the waters of the lower pool. 10 You numbered the houses of Jerusalem, And the houses you broke down To fortify the wall. 11 You also made a reservoir between the two walls For the water of the old pool. But you did not look to its Maker, Nor did you have respect for Him who fashioned it long ago.

12 And in that day the Lord God of hosts Called for weeping and for mourning,For baldness and for girding with sackcloth. 13 But instead, joy and gladness, Slaying oxen and killing sheep, Eating meat and drinking wine: “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!”

14 Then it was revealed in my hearing by the Lord of hosts,”Surely for this iniquity there will be no atonement for you, Even to your death,” says the Lord God of hosts.  (Isaiah 22:1-14 NKJV)

The ‘City of David’ is Jerusalem (cf. 2 Samuel 5:6-9).  Elam seems to be a reference to at least some in Iran.  Kir is of interest as it has several possibilities.  One is that the Bible tells that after Tiglath-Pileser king of Assyria took over Damascus, he moved Syrians to Kir.  While this does not mean that Kir must (or must only) be a reference to Syria, the fact that Syria is an ally of Iran is interesting.  Some believe Kir is an area in the south of Iran, while others suggest closer to the Black Sea. The Bible tells of a time when Kir will be destroyed (Isaiah 15:1b) and also says that Syria’s capital Damascus will be destroyed (Isaiah 17:1).

Notice also that Iran is involved with Syria:

September 25, 2015

“The Syrian regime is increasingly dependent on Iran,” says a Western diplomat. “Its footprint is growing.” …

Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps advisers, who are occasionally spotted near the frontlines, shun publicity. Fit-looking Iranians in civilian clothes are sometimes seen crossing the Lebanese border, handing over their passports en masse without being required to leave their vehicles – a sure sign of their discreet VIP status.

“The Iranians are there – and they are not there,” quips a Sunni businessperson from Homs. “They are a ghostly presence.” Speculation about their activities is rife. But the consensus among many Syrians and foreign experts is that their role is extremely important – though very shadowy.

“We know quite a lot about what the Iranians do in specific places – we see weapons, equipment and intercepts – but we still don’t have an understanding of what they do in institutional terms,” says Emile Hokayem of the International Institute for Strategic Studies. “The question is to what extent they are involved in planning and command and control.”

Iran has certainly provided a financial lifeline to Assad since the 2011 uprising, releasing billions of dollars of loans and credit for imports of oil and other commodities. Another important contribution was setting up the national defence forces, locally based militia units outside the regular army, which have acquired a reputation for profiteering and brutality.

Iran is allied with Syria. The Bible also indicates that Iran will one day suffer military defeat (Jeremiah 49:34-38).

Yet, is it any wonder that many in the Jewish state of Israel, as well as some leaders in the USA, have concerns about the nuclear deal?

Iranian leaders keep publicly stating that they are opposed to the USA and want to eliminate Israel.  Yet, some consider that the nuclear deal is a major diplomatic success for the USA.

We may well see a regional war involving Iran, Syria, and Israel.  A war that would see all of them damaged according to Bible prophecy.  But also a war that might lead to another ‘deal’–perhaps one day the deal of Daniel 9:27 that will signal the final countdown to the end.
