OBVIOUS: adjective So Very Clear

Our nation’s leaders and large portions of its people pretend to be blind to what is surely ahead for the nation of Israel under the shadow of a nuclear Iran. Can they also ignore the warning God gives to those who curse Israel?

Obvious: adjective So Very Clear

The famed detective, Sherlock Holmes, brought to life by the pen and from the mind of Sir Arthur Conon Doyle, is quoted as having instructed Dr. Watson that, “There is nothing more elusive than an obvious fact.” (1) The quote was effective enough that it was used in the 2009 film version of the great detective’s stories; Sherlock Holmes. What is so very clear is that the obvious facts are being ignored.

"There's nothing so elusive as an obvious fact."
The currently cascading reams of information coming forth regarding President Obama’s “negotiations” with Iran are coming from every sector of the world community; business, finance, the military, commercial, and private sources, yet nothing has been honestly communicated from the West Wing. The Obama Administration has refused to come clean on how it has overwhelmingly allowed Iran to design its own nuclear future. Even many members of Congress have been slow to take a resolute stand on the issue. Many of them seem to be deafeningly quiet as an election year comes upon us. Democrats are beginning to line up in support, just when they need the Democratic campaign coffers the most.
A recent article stated that even if Congress disapproves the treaty that has been created in the sleazy backrooms of the White House, the palace in Tehran and side streets of Istanbul, Kabul, Islamabad, Riyadh, Moscow, Baghdad, and Damascus, there are still mechanisms in place that will permit the Conspirator in Chief to push forward the treaty as if it were U.S. law. Perhaps not since the wholesale abandonment of Sarajevo and the Muslims of Bosnia-Herzegovina to the slaughter of the Serbians has the west, particularly the United States government, been so egregiously guilty of abandoning an ally, Israel. Our nation’s leaders and large portions of its people pretend to be blind to what is surely ahead for the nation of Israel under the shadow of a nuclear Iran. Can they also ignore the warning God gives to those who curse Israel?
The Jerusalem Post ran a portion of a letter President Obama sent to NY Congressman Jerrold Nadler regarding Obama’s alleged support for the Israeli government in a move to garner support for the upcoming vote on the treaty. The excerpt reads, “Our governments should identify ways to accelerate the ongoing collaborative research and development for tunnel detection and mapping technologies to provide Israel new capabilities to detect and destroy tunnels because they could be used to threaten Israeli civilians” (2)  I personally have never surveyed a plot of land nor measured in micro millimeters the length of an inch worm but, common sense tells me that there is a very long distance between ‘Our governments will’ and “Our governments should”

The obvious fact is that the Iranian government has done nothing in the last two plus decades to cause us to put any credence into anything they might say, Secondly, the treaty (and I despise even using that term) ends in fifteen years and then Iran is free to use industrial amounts of weapons grade whatever they choose and their break-out time to a weapon is reduced to a couple of days. But… the administration assures us that our intelligence capabilities will be so much better then, etc., etc., etc. Just as this administration’s and Congress’ fix for the economy is to punt it down the generational path and let our kids and grandkids fix the problem; they are punting a nuclear Iran down the generational yellow-brick road to let the next generation of Israelis and Americans deal with it. Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore!
The key issue is that a sinister, evil group of people are strangle holding a country and they are bullying the world into cowing down to their brazen acts of international aggravated menacing; threatening to wipe an entire nation “off of the map.” If that were not abhorrent enough, the most powerful nation in the world is aiding and abetting their criminal acts by not stopping the terrorists’ threats and eliminating the malefactors that are the cause of the issue. Had someone taken out Adolf Hitler in 1937, think of how different history would be. Instead, Obama ignores the obvious facts and sends my grandchildren to the next world war.

UN-welcome News

Dr. Ross L. Riggs – Riggs Ministry Minute – A ministry of True North Ministries – 15 February 2012

The most recent news from New York – that part of New York that isn’t New York, it isn’t even American – the ghastly string of buildings in Manhattan that proudly declares it is everything that it must be to be anti-American and still we host them at amazing cost to the tax payers. But I digress… the news from the U.N. is most ‘unwelcome’ particularly as it has to do with Israel, Iran and Syria. A recent bill in the U.N that was to go before the Security Council to enforce a strong resolution against the civilian carnage in Syria never left the Security Council chambers. Dual vetoes by Russia and China, according to The Weekly Standard contributor, John Bolton- former ambassador to the UN, “made it clear that the U.N. will play no role contrary to (Russia’s and China’s) interests.”

For the nuclear issue in Iran, the stage then has been set. Bolton wrote, “… there will be no dramatic Security Council action to administer the coup de grace against Iran; no further UN. Sanctions; nothing that could be used to enforce exiting sanctions militarily…” If Israel were not hanging out on a limb all alone before, they are now and the U.N. just handed them a two ton brick to hold. According to Bolton, “We now have no prospect through diplomacy or sanctions  of preventing Iran from crossing the finish line essentially at a time of its choosing.” On January 31stof this year, the U.S. Director of Intelligence, James Clapper testified before the Senate regarding Tehran’s nuclear program. He said, “The sanctions imposed so far have not caused them to change their behavior or their policy.”

Ambassador Bolton believes that the Obama administration is so open about the possibility of Israel conducting a preemptive strike against Iran this spring because private pressure against Israel to back away has not worked. He is concerned, as all Israel should be when he writes, “Who knows what sensitive information Team Obama will next reveal: Israel’s flight plan to the Iranian targets? Israel’s order of battle?” His conclusion is that “Since there is almost no chance that Obama will act (to stop Iran militarily), the pressure on Israel intensifies.”

Finally, in this report, the Former Ambassador states it plainly regarding Israel’s current position as it regards Iran. “…in the absence of American leadership, David needs to decide on his own whether to pick up his slingshot.” It cannot be stated more plainly. I would conclude that if at any time Christian’s ever prayed for the peace of Jerusalem, the time is now to do so; as well as for all God’s people to pray that His will should be accomplished in these last days.
