We reported here some time back that if the prophetic pattern held true, Israel’s next battle would be against ancient Persia, modern day Iran. It looks as if tensions are at the boiling point all across the Mid-East. We know that Russia and Iran are “in bed” together. Could an Israeli attack against Iran be the tipping point that will cause the Russian bear to come forth with a coalition of Islamic nations against Israel as described in Ezekiel 38 & 39? Time will tell.

Iran: Israel’s threats inexplicable

Iran’s ambassador to UN demands Security Council take steps against comments made by Ephraim Sneh, who said Israel would attack Iran if sanctions weren’t in place by Christmas

Iran’s ambassador to the UN, Mohammad Khazaee, sent a letter of protest to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moonin which he wrote that “there is no explanation for Israel’s continuing threats against Tehran”.

He was referring to an interview given by former Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh to the Sunday Times in which he said that if Iran were not further sanctioned by this Christmas Israel would attack the country.

Sneh told the paper that if Israel were forced to attack the Islamic Republic on its own it would do so, remarks the Iranian ambassador deemed “irresponsible”.

He said he hoped the UN would take steps against such comments. “Remarks such as these, stated once in a while by Israeli leaders, are no more than sorry excuses aimed at avoiding supplying answers
regarding Israel’s nuclear arsenal and deflecting public awareness from the crimes and terror Israel commits in the region,” he said.

Khazaee once again stressed that his country’s nuclear program was intended for peaceful purposes and said that “the only threat in the region is Israel’s nuclear arsenal, which remains unsupervised to this day”.
