The following is an excerpt from Joel Rosenberg’s Blog:
(Washington, D.C., February 11, 2014) — Today marks the 35th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. Hundreds of thousands of Iranians turned out on the streets to mark the occasion. Many denounced America as the “Great Satan.” Many also shouted, “Death to Israel,” which they believe is the “Little Satan.”
The fall of the Shah in 1979 and the rise of the Ayatollah Khomeini was a game-changing moment in the modern history of the Middle East. Iran suddenly shifted from a friend and ally of the United States (and even quietly allied with Israel), to a serious enemy. It started with the seizure of our Embassy and taking our diplomats hostage for 444 days.
But it has gone much worse over time. Iran has been implicated in killing Americans in the Beirut bombing of our Marine barracks, and at the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia. They have funded, trained and armed terror groups around the world. Now they are actively developing a nuclear weapons program even as the world refuses to take decisive action to stop them.

In addition to “Death to Israel” and “Down with Israel” signs, were many saying “Death to the USA” and “We are eager for the options on the table.” The last one refers to the Obama Administration’s lame warning: “All options are on the table” which weakly suggests the military option. Check out this excellent video interview with K T McFarland this morning on Fox News. She believes we can beat Iran economically if we keep up the pressure: “They would be so busy worrying about their NECKS, they wouldn’t have time to worry about their NUKES.” K T McFarland worked for President Ronald Reagan and wrote the first draft of his famous “Star Wars” speech.
ITCHING EARS – For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 2 Timothy 4:3
The real problem is not with Iran, it is with the Western nations. President Obama is so averse to force and so subservient to Islam, that he insists on a diplomacy that has emboldened Iran. The Iran “negotiations” are only to determine how much we will give up to Iran for this round of talks, allowing them to continue their march toward nukes.
I know that this “itching ears” verse is usually applied to Christians, but it certainly describes the present Iranian threat. Their new president is an expert at tickling itching ears. We need to pray for our leaders to stand up to Islam. Pray especially for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He is a Bible believer. Pray that he will first hear the voice of Yehovah God, and then that he will have courage to stand for God’s purposes for Israel.
