US-Russian deal lets Iranís nuclear bomb program off the hook

DEBKAfile Special Report

September 27, 2008, 5:21 PM (GMT+02:00)

Friday, Sept. 26, 2008 was the day the policy pursued by Ehud Olmert, Tzipi Livni and Shimon Peres, of reliance on the international community to stop Iran developing a nuclear bomb, sank without a trace. The international community declined to adopt fresh economic sanctions to rein in an increasingly defiant Tehran.

A deal between the US and Russia in New York sealed a very brief non-sanctions draft reaffirming previous council decisions for the five permanent Security Council members and Germany to table. It also called for Iran’s compliance.

This ignored the reality of Iran openly flouting all three previous sanctions resolutions: Tehran continues to enrich uranium, reprocess plutonium, build nuclear-capable missiles and stonewall on International Atomic Energy Agency’s questions and inspections.

Even the usually forgiving IAEA director Mohamed ElBaradei changed his tune and admitted Thursday that Iran was on its way to “mastering technology that would enable it to build atomic bombs.”

Yet no comment has come from Israel, either from the Kadima-nominee for prime minister Tzipi Livni or defense minister, Labor’s Ehud Barak, although ElBaradei was clearly preparing the ground to raise his hands and admit failure in stop Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon capability. The world would have to swallow the pill.

This acceptance was reflected in the West’s backing down on a fourth round of sanctions. Iran, free of fear of retribution, may go forward with its first underground nuclear test some time next year, flaunting the inability of its arch-foes, America and Israel, to prevent it attaining the status of first Islamic nuclear power.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad could therefore afford to be cockier than ever when he addressed the UN General Assembly in Nazi-style anti-Semitic, anti-Israeli and anti-American language. Tehran would ignore any council demand imposed by “arrogant powers” to curb its nuclear program, he declared. The issue was closed.

The Iranian leader can afford to crow. This week he won solid backing from Iran’s ultimate power, supreme leader ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who called on the nation to give him their support.

This cleared the way for Ahmadinejad’s re-election as president next year and enable him to continue to shepherd the national nuclear weapons program through to completion.

He certainly picked up the gap in perception of the program between Israel and the world powers. While Israeli spokesman still refer to a future threat which there is still time to stop, most world leaders appear reconciled to its presence.

The collapse of Israel’s foreign policy on this issue came at an unfortunate juncture:

1. The pandemonium in the US-led financial world has removed the Iranian threat from international consciousness.

2. Moscow, Iran and Syria are cementing their partnership, giving Tehran’s nuclear aspirations a strong diplomatic umbrella.

Moscow is pursuing cold war tactics in two new spheres: the Middle East, from its center of gravity in Tehran, and Latin America, resting on Venezuela’s anti-American posture and friendly relations with Iran.

Israel’s foreign policy, lame and defensive at the best of times since Livni took over, appears as oblivious as ever to the disastrous developments pressing down on the Jewish state.


We need to keep Israel in prayer, please agree with me and keep Israel in prayer.  The world will soon find out the God of Israel is real, mighty, and has never stopped being the Father of His children.  God Bless! Daniel Eggers

Greed

Psalm 10:3, For the wicked boasts of the desires of his soul, and the one greedy for gain curses and renounces the LordI was reading an article this morning addressing the current situation in the financial market; the article made several sound points on why our economy is in the state that it is in, but one really stuck out, greed. What is greed? The American Heritage Dictionary defines greed as: An excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one needs or deserves, especially with respect to material wealth.  Interesting, especially with respects to material wealth. So could our markets be in shambles because of greed? Could this five-letter word be the destructive disease that crippled the unstoppable US economy? Surely not, greed isn’t that bad, right?  Jesus puts it this way in Luke 12:15, Then he said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.” NLT

Paul tells us in 1 Timothy 6:10, For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.  I think this last verse puts it all into perspective.   Hypothetically, if America hadn’t spent the last 60 years pushing God out of every realm of our society and nation maybe more people would have seen greed as the sin that it is. Our economy, the mortgage lenders, and the American people didn’t get the memo, the love of money is the root of all evil, it sure seems the economy and many American families seem to be pierced through with many sorrows.  Looking back the excessive pursuit of greed wasn’t worth it, sadly greed still blinds the greedy, and only when all is lost will the greedy open their eyes to see the truth.  To bad more of us don’t know Hebrews 13:5, Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” God help us all, God Bless!  Daniel Eggers

Valley of the shadow of death.
Most of us have at one time memorized the 23 Psalm, or atleast find ourselves familiar with the verse, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me."  In this hour we live, this day, this week, this year,  we should be comforted, knowing that we are not alone.  God has never left us alone to journey through the valley of the shadow of death.  The valley can be any number of things.  It can be a personal or spiritual struggle, a national depression, or a physical affliction.  I just want all of us to know and take comfort in knowing, WE ARE NOT ALONE. Alot is going on in our world, our nation, and in our homes, but we must never forget, God is always there for us, around ever turn, past every shadow, surrounding our every move.  God Bless!  Daniel Eggers

Pray for our nation.

Our nation seems to not only be in the midst of troubling times, but on the door step of even greater problems to come.  I can't explain the feeling of uncertainty I get in my chest when I hear the greatest names in the political and economical arena try to bolster hope and optimism.  All I see and hear is denial. Everyone has a reason why we are in the situation that we are in, everyone has an opinion on what needs to be done, everyone has a finger that seems to be pointing at everyone but themselves.  I have an opinion about the state of our economy, I have a fix, I have a theory.  Here it is..... God, the Creator of the Universe.  There it is, my theory, my fix, and my reason for why the economy is in the state that it is in.  Is it God's fault? Absolutely not, we can not blame God for destroying what we have not made Him apart of. We cannot expect God to hold together a economy and a nation that wants nothing to do with Him. How can we recieve God's blessing and His national defense if as a majority we deny His existence and divinity. So there you have it, God gave the majority of the usa what it has been religiously demanding...... Freedom from His blessing and soon I fear His protection.  In case you haven't noticed, look back and see just were that Godless freedom so many have been screaming for has gotten us.   God forgive us.  God Bless!
