|Iran has sent a formal complaint to the United Nations Security Council against Israel, regarding comments made by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz, about the possibility of a military strike on its nuclear facilities. Iran demanded of the UN that it respond to the Israeli threats and that Israel be made to abide by international law... |
Quote: "The letter was presented Monday evening to acting president of the Security Council, the Belgian Ambassador to the UN. The protest came in response to statements made by Mofaz during a visit to Washington last week, heading an Israeli delegation that held strategic discussions with the US dealing mostly with the Iranian nuclear threat. At a press conference, Mofaz responded to a reporter's question by saying that "the military option is included in all the options that are on the table..."
When Iranian President Ahmadinejad stated that Israel should be wiped off the map, his remarks received international condemnation. Former Prime Minister Shimon Peres slammed the United Nations for its failure to act against the Iranian President, stating that "a member of the UN is calling for another member of the UN to be destroyed", and action should be taken to stop this. British Prime Minister Tony Blair remarked that "if someone else were to call for Iran or Syria to be wiped off the map, people would be tearing the house down!". And that is true, had Israel called for Iran to be destroyed completely, you can just imagine the reaction of the mainstream media. Israel has never called for any state to be wiped off the map, even though Egypt, Iran, Syria, Jordan and many other Arab states have repeatedly attempted to do so. But the Bible states that Israel shall never be removed again from its place, though all the nations of earth be gathered against it.
1st Chronicles 17:9
God willing I will be heading to Israel in October of this year, for my first trip to the Holy Land.
