Israeli president Shimon Peres, in a CNN interview, is saying that time is out for Iran to make concessions. If they don’t stop enrichening uranium within days they will suffer an attack on their nuclear installations, he is implying.
I don’t think Iran will stop the enrichening process, because their eschatology says that they must create chaos in order to bring out the Imam Mahdi, the twelfth Imam. The Iranian leadership is composed of true believers in the twelfth Imam. They are as committed to him, as Christians should be committed to Jesus Christ. The difference is that Jesus doesn’t command us to hurt anyone, but “love your neighbor”.
Since most of the world’s leadership is composed of humanists, I don’t think they understand the passion the Iranian leadership has for their “messiah”. Humanists are equally committed to the idea that people are basically “good” despite six thousand years of history saying otherwise.
So the humanists, like Obama, continue to negotiate with people who follow a book that says it is OK to lie to infidels, so long as Islam gains in the end!
Still, I think there is every possibility that the US, and maybe some parts of Europe, will go together with Israel to stop Iran’s enrichment process. They will have to, or Iran will get the bomb. It is not a matter of if, but when. And when they do get it they will use it! They have already stated as much.
If I were a betting man, I would bet that either Israel alone, or with help, will put an end to Iran’s nuclear ambitions, and I would bet it would occur this year.
