With the installation of the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, world leaders have been surprised to find out that he is as radical as former Iranian President Ahmadinejad only with a more pleasant approach. My broadcast partner Ken Timmerman says that people must understand that is the case.
Ken Timmerman: Well that's right and I think it's important that people understand that. He's being painted by some people in Washington, the Obama White House in particular, as some great new moderate, but as I have looked at his record and you and I have talked about this a little bit Jimmy on air, Hassan Rouhani is a member of the ruling clerical elite in the Islamic Republic of Iran. His views are not all that different from those of the supreme leader Ayatollah Khomeini who also believes that Israel is a gaping wound in the fabric of the Muslim world. I'm just glad I suppose in a way to hear him actually say these things openly and publicly so hopefully folks will open their ears and they will hear.
How does Washington respond? Will the Obama Administration do as they have suggested they will do, open a new initiative, have a new opening towards Teheran with the new president under the guise that he's some great new moderate smiling mullah or will they look at his record, look at his past statements, look at the people that he's putting in power and recognize that he's simply the puppet of Ayatollah Khomeini who hasn't changed one iota in his determination to destroy Israel and to destroy America?
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
It doesn't really matter who the president of Iran is today because Iran will be a major player in the last days that is according to Bible prophecy.
When Hassan Rouhani was elected, world leaders thought that he was going to be a moderate Iranian president, however even before his installation, Rouhani was spouting radical rhetoric against the Jewish state of Israel calling Israel a wound on the Muslim world that must be removed. That's exactly what Bible prophecy calls for.
The Psalmist in Psalm 83:4 said that Israel would be wiped off the face of the earth and her name forgotten forever. Ezekiel 38:5 mentions Persia, modern day Iran will lead the way to eliminate the Jewish state in the Middle East.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is leading the way to set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
