Millions of Iranians hold nation-wide rallies to mark Jerusalem Day

Since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran has observed the last Friday of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month, as Jerusalem Day with a way of expressing support to the Palestinians and emphasizing the importance of Jerusalem to Moslems.

This year, millions of Iranians attended nationwide rallies in support of the Palestinians even as the Iranian president said that Israel's continued existence was an insult to human dignity and that the occupation of Palestine is not limited to one land, the Zionist issue is now a global issue. In Tehran, hundreds of thousands of Iranians poured into the streets as they chanted "Death to Israel" and as they burned Israeli flags. The Iranian President Ahmadinejad said, together with other nations, Iran would continue the resistance until the Palestinian lands are liberated from Israel.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Iranian President Ahmadinejad's continued radical rhetoric, focused on the Jewish state of Israel, has a very significant prophetic aspect for the End Times according to Bible prophecy.

The statement during Jerusalem Day rallies in Iran that the creation, continued existence, and unlimited support of Israel is an insult to human dignity is a blatant example of the radical rhetoric by Iran's President Ahmadinejad that is impacting the world. Over the last two years, Ahmadinejad has denied that the Holocaust of the Jews ever took place, that Israel must be removed from the Earth and that the end of the Jewish existence is close at hand, has been a rallying cry for Israel haters to join together to accomplish Ahmadinejad's goals.

Calling your "holy" day, Jerusalem Day, and celebrating the total demise of the Jews from their God-given land is inline with the prophetic scenario for the Last Days that is found in Bible prophecy. A number of the ancient Jewish prophets addressed the issue of attempts by Israel's enemies to try and remove them from the Earth as is the case in Daniel11, Ezekiel 38 and Psalm 83. Zechariah points out that Jerusalem will be on the agenda of Israel's enemies as well, Zechariah 12:2-3 and Zechariah 1:14-16. The death of a large number of Jews, eight million of them, is also predicted, Zechariah 13:8, Revelation 12:13-17.

As Iranian President Ahmadinejad ratchets up his rhetoric, these prophecies come closer and closer to being fulfilled.
