A couple of days ago I said that the Israeli Prime Minister's remarks would be taken as "evidence" by Iran than the "Zionist regime" should be wiped out as soon as possible.  Ehud Olmert had told German television that Iran had a desire to obtain nuclear weapons like Israel, shattering Israel's ambiguity policy over its possession of nuclear weapons. Some in the government are stating that Olmert's slip was purposely intended to send a message to Ahmadinejad not to think about attacking Israel. I personally think the man just didn't think before he spoke. Today, the Iranian government spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini used Olmert's own words against him, portraying Israel as the aggressor and providing "proof" for Islamic extremists that what President Ahmadinejad has been saying all along is true...

Quote: "According to Hosseini, this statement "constitutes a real threat to the security and stability of the Middle East... it's proof that Islamic nations in the region are under a security threat." Iranian news agency IRNA, which reported Hosseini's statement, said that "the announcement indicates the worrying objectives of the Zionist regime and its intention to implement its threats against the Muslim world, to execute an aggressive policy and continue occupation of the region." "The Security Council, the Islamic Council and other organizations must take real and effective steps to cope with these clear threats," the agency continued.

I can't help but think of King David, when Nathan the prophet accused him of the murder of Uriah the Hittite. Nathan said that by this, David had given great occasion for the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme. And indeed he had, and David suffered because of his sin. Likewise, because Israel has turned its back on their Messiah, they have given great occasion for their enemies to blaspheme God and His chosen people, and thus we have episodes like this. When Iran does invade Israel, God will defeat them and He will be sanctified in the sight of all nations, but perhaps not more so than in the sight of Israel itself.
