In a recent gathering of world leaders, French President Sarkozy made the dramatic statement that an unilateral attack on Iran by Israel would be a catastrophe and that not only would Israel and Iran be damaged, such an attack would be harmful for the entire Middle East and even Europe. Sarkozy's statement comes at a time when both the United States and Israel believe that Iran could have a nuclear bomb within the year according to US and Israeli intelligence, however, both nations believe that will not be the case at least right now.
Meanwhile, Israel continues to prepare militarily for a preemptive attack on Iran, realizing that the Iranian threat and a nuclear weapon of mass destruction is still the number one threat to the Jewish state.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The fact that a world leader like French President Sarkozy could say that Israel defending itself from being wiped off the face of the Earth would be a catastrophe, is a step closer to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy for the last days.
The ongoing threat of a nuclear powered Iran will not go away and world leaders really don't have a resolution to this problem. However, many world leaders do not hesitate to put pressure on Israel to not launch a preemptive strike against a nation that says they will wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. As reported, the French President went as far as to say if Israel did strike Iran in order to destroy the possibility of Iran producing a nuclear weapon of mass destruction, that type of an attack would be a catastrophe. Many of the Arab leaders and the Israeli government believe that if Iran does acquire a nuclear weapon of mass destruction, that would be a catastrophe.
The ancient Jewish prophet Ezekiel prewrote history for our day which I would describe as the last days, the end times. Ezekiel 38:5 speaks of Persia as a nation that will move to attack the Jewish state to wipe it off the face of the Earth. By the way, Persia is the Biblical name for three nations today: Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran. These three nations are major players today and Iran is leading the way to destroy the Jewish state of Israel. This indeed is evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
