Iran is escalating a conflict with Israel

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Why is Iran escalating their conflict with Israel? Is this a pulmonary negotiation ploy as well or are they just wanting to wipe Israel off the face of the earth as their leaders have often said?

KT: Well I think its a bit of both and there’s a third element involved in it as well which doesn’t get talked about quite as much and that is the domestic unrest the on going protest inside Iran. These protest are not going away. There have been hundreds of them now since December and they are roving. They’re going from city to city from town to town. They’re all across the country. The regime doesn’t know how to deal with the demands of the protesters because this is not the liberal Tehran urban alkies. These are actually the supporters of the regime the dispossessed, the poor, the urban poor, the rural poor, the people who are not benefiting from the Revolution as they were promised to benefit.

So the regime has its own supporters protesting against it and I think this has got them very very worried. So they’re hoping to distract attention from domestic protest by exacerbating the situation in Syria and by escalating their threats against the state of Israel. Now that doesn’t mean they don’t have intentions. We’ve learned this week for example that the Russians actually shot down three armed Iranian drones that the Iranians were trying to launch into Israel. The Russians shot them down before they could cross the border.

Russia is trying to tamp down the tension between Israel and Iran and it’s letting the Iranians know that even they have a red line. So the Iranians do have a real desire to attack Israel at some point and probably sooner than later. But they’re going to find that there are restrictions on their activities coming from unusual sources including the Russians presence in Syria. 

JD: Ken Timmerman with the details behind the Iranian escalation of a conflict with Israel.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

As the conflict brewing between Iran and Israel has been ratcheted up in the last couple of days by the Iranians many in the Middle East think that it could happen and happen very soon. The conflict could break out at any moment. Actually this is a page out of Bible prophecy Ezekiel 38:5.

With the situation in the Middle East as it is today the activities between Israel and Iran with both nations armed militarily ready to go at each other. The stage is set, all the actors in place, and the curtain about to go up. It is absolute that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
