Iran’s summit nightmare continues

At the American Interest blog, Walter Russell Mead writes that Iran’s hosting of the Non-Aligned Movement annual summit – intended to show off its yearned-for status as an emerging power – has blown up in Tehran’s face. As Mead points out:

First, Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi deviated from the script, criticizing Iran’s allies in Syria and coming out in favor of the rebellion. Then UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon joined in, sharply denouncing Iran’s threats of destruction towards Israel and its persistent denial of the atrocities of the Holocaust.

We hate to disagree with Mead, whom we greatly respect, but we found Ban’s comments to be tepid and his words undermined by his choice to attend the conference in the first place. Morsi’s speech played to his domestic constituency and to pan-Arab feelings about Iran, which is not Arab but Persian.

    God is angry at iran and all those who seek to destroy Israel and her people. The wrath of the ALL MIGHTY LORD will be on those who go against Israel. Scripture speaks of the end days and no matter what happens Israel will have the VICTORY !

      I could agree with you wholeheartedly. God must be laughing in heaven at what is happening in Iran. The President of Iran the mad man he is does not know the God of Israel.

    YES!! I firmly believe that the war that takes 1/3 of the world’s population, as prophesied in the Bible, is coming soon. Iran is pushing it closer and closer, and more people are seeing it come to fruition. Pray for Israel and her people. Pray for Jerusalem!!

    The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the God of Israel, and He will fight for His chosen people. Chosen to bring us the scriptures, the prophets, and our very Own Savior, Jesus Christ. That’s why the devil hates them and wants to destroy them, but God will fight for Israel and He will preserve them.

    The Secretary General and all the other countries know that if you go against the Arab countries, they are going to retaliate like they do in Israel. But as we all know, Israel is fighting back.
    Hope that God will keep Israel on this holiday.

    I love God and I love his people (Isrealites). I am stedfast in doing God’s work. His people will be victorious, through God’s intervention. Any country who stands against Isreal, stands against God’s will.

    WHAT TOOK THE UN SECRETARY GENERAL TO bring out these facts against Iran? And I am very happy about what the Egyptian president has said also!
    If these important people continue and take a stand against Iran and there march toward World War III maybe we can have peace in our time?

      Joseph, you sound like a religious fanatic. Replace the name “Israel” with “Iran” and you will see what I mean.

    There has always been deep cultural, theological and even racial divisions in the Muslim world. Regardless how they “align” themselves, I suspect this will play a large part in their impotence in destroying Israel. There will be a Muslim-Israeli war when Israel takes out Iran’s nuclear capabilities, and I’m betting Israel will gain control of all Jerusalem- especially the temple mount. This is God’s war. He will be glorified in its outcome, and Israel’s continued existence will once again bear witness that the God of Israel is all powerful.

    I’m guessing the US and the west will do little to help, which would detract from God’s miracle in saving His people. It’s important that we as individuals stand ready to give what help we can. We are being set up for the end times, which are rapidly approaching. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, which will come with the return of Messiah. Pray also for the Jewish people as well as true Christians because the times leading up to this are already shaping up to be the brutal times predicted for the end. Above all we should add works to our faith (“faith without works is dead”) and stand boldly for God and for His nation and people, Israel.

      Amen Brother Dan, I have to agree with you 100 percent. I stand for, pray for and would fight along side of Israel, given the chance. We as “Christians” should all do what we can to support Israel.
