With friends like Edwards, who needs enemies? A spokesman for US presidential candidate John Edwards has denied he made remarks at during campaign address that he believed an Israeli strike in Iran is the biggest threat to Middle East peace. According to a report by Variety.com, the remarks resulted in a "chill" in the room and at the end of the event.

Quote: "According to the Associated Press, Edwards denies the statement. His spokesman, Jonathan Prince called the Variety.com story "erroneous" and was quick to correct it. "Senator Edwards did not say nor does he believe that the greatest short-term threat to world peace is the possibility that Israel would bomb Iran's nuclear facilities. Senator Edwards said, as he has in the past, that Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon is one of the greatest short-term threats to world peace," Prince explained. 

We've been saying for some time that since the Democrats regained power in Congress, the chances of the US coming to Israel's aid over a conflagration with Iran are now a lot less likely. You only need to look at the hammering President Bush has been given over the Iraq war. They've made such an issue of it, that I doubt a Democrat controlled government would ever allow President Bush to go to war again. Even if Iran started it. Slip of the tongue, or perhaps John Edwards really did make those comments. In any case it shows us just how Satan works, portraying evil as good and good as evil. Iran is the nation that is working towards developing nuclear weapons and has threatened to wipe Israel off the map, yet in the eyes of many Israel is the aggressor for just wanting to ensure its own survival and trying to prevent a global nuclear catastrophe. Go figure. Edwards' thoughts reflect those of former British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, who labelled Iran and Israel as potential threats to Middle East peace. Someone please tell me the last time Israel threatened another nation with annihilation. 

But that's the way Satan works. You can see it in every interview, in every editorial, in every publication that mentions the conflict in the Middle East. It's either for Israel or against, and those who are against Israel must justify violence and bloodshed. Either they will brush it under the carpet and not mention it, or they will say there is a moral equivalence to violence by both sides (the media loves that one), or that people have a right to kill one another to resist occupation (Ken Livingston, Cherie Blair). All three of these in my Bible is murder, and the Bible says not to be a partaker of another man's sins. Those that fight against Israel will find themselves fighting against God.

Zechariah 2:7-9 
Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me.
