Listen to Today's Program
The Jerusalem Conference, a gathering of politicos, military leaders, media people and members of academia heard the world renowned historian Bernard Lewis, who delivered the closing lecture at the conference, tell the attendees that Iran, Israel's number one threat, would not consider a preemptive attack or even the threat of mutually assured destruction as a deterrent factor, but rather an inducement to attack the Jewish state.
Iran's leadership comprises a group of extreme fanatical Moslems who believe that their Messianic times have arrived and that Iran, which is not an Arab country but a Moslem nation, is ruled today by a Moslem theocracy which calculates its policies not by Iran's national interest but by what is good for Islam. Lewis said that even though Iran is actively pursuing a Nuclear Weapon of Mass Destruction (NWMD), a non-nuclear Iran is dangerous for Israel and it must be carefully watched.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The statement by Bernard Lewis, the world renowned historian, that Iran with or without a NWMD is still a threat to Israel, is a page out of Bible prophecy for the Last Days.
The Jerusalem Conference gathers members of academia, politicos, military leaders and media people to Jerusalem on a yearly basis to mainly discuss the Jewish state of Israel's place in the Middle East and in fact, the world. The conference speakers also addressed the major threats to Israel and how they believe these threats can best be handled. Bernard Lewis, the world renown historian who addressed the Jerusalem Conference, gave his evaluation of the term that he coined the "Clash of Civilizations" with an analysis of the threat to Israel in today's world with Iran at the top of the list, which is a glimpse into the End Times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.
A number of Arab and Moslem nations today are preparing to deal with the nation they consider a cancer to the Middle East, the Jewish state of Israel. Ezekiel, Daniel, Joel and to some extent every ancient Jewish prophet, wrote about this Alignment of Nations that will try to destroy Israel in the Last Days, Ezekiel 38, Daniel 11, Joel 2 and Psalm 83.
As Bernard Lewis reveals, Iran is the major threat to Israel, but only one of the threats.
