An Israeli official says Iran can also be wiped off the map

A former Israeli PM and the present Vice PM Shimon Perez said recently that the President of Iran, Ahmadinejad, should remember that Iran can also be wiped off the map.

This expression from Shimon Perez which did not include who should act against Iran if it continues with its development of a Nuclear Weapon of Mass Destruction. Perez said the UN Security Council must take action against Iran and if they are incapable of doing so, they then endanger their existence as an important world body.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Iran will face a time of total destruction, but not at the hands of Israel that is according to Bible prophecy. The threat that Iran's nuclear weapons program imposes on the state of Israel, the middle East, and in fact the entire world is and has been the subject of discussions among world leaders.

Intense debates in the UN Security Council over how to deal with Iran have resulted in delaying a final showdown with the Iranians. Add to that mix, the insightful statements by Iran's President Ahmadinejad and you have a situation that is causing much concern in our world today. The shot fired across the bow by Shimon Perez, Israel's Vice PM, that Iran can also be wiped off the map as a response to Ahmadinejad's call for Israel to be wiped off the map, that statement has interesting prophetic significance.

The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel wrote some 2,500 years ago that Iran, biblical Persia of Ezekiel 38:5, would join a coalition of nations to come against Israel in the Last Days to try to destroy the Jewish state, that's Ezekiel 38:1-17. Ezekiel also wrote that when the attack does happen those attacking nations, including Iran, will be destroyed; 5 out of every 6 of their peoples will be killed, that's Ezekiel 39:1-7.

The statement by Israel's Shimon Perez that Iran could be wiped off the map does indeed set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
