Rohani: Israel is an 'old wound' that should be removed


YNet News: “Iran’s new president has called Israel an “old wound” that should be removed in comments published just two days ahead of his inauguration and as millions of Iranians took to the streets to mark al-Quds Day.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in response, “Rohani’s true face has been exposed sooner than expected. Even if his comments will quickly be denied – that’s what the man thinks and that’s the Iranian regime’s game plan.”

These remarks should awaken the world from the illusion that has taken hold on some since the elections in Iran.”


Opinion: Indeed the world  should awaken, Mr. Prime Minister, but in similar fashion to Rohani’s predecessor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the hateful words will undoubtedly fall on deaf ears. Israel is becoming more isolated with each passing day (Numbers 23:9).

Israel just agreed to release 104 murderous criminals at the urging of the US State Department. Israel is being asked to halt all building of housing for its citizens. Israel is being asked to give back land taken in a defensive war that would render the nation defenseless. When you think about it, it seems absurd.

But all this is further proof of the lateness of the hour. All of Israel’s enemies are clearly foretold in God’s word, the Bible. It is all there for us to see and follow. The actors are taking their pre-assigned places on the world stage, the curtain is about to go up, and scoffers (2 Peter 3:3-4) refuse free tickets to the show.

It can be frustrating trying to explain it to people you care about that don’t read His word …  isn’t it?
