DebkaFile: “Iran, and not just Russia and Syria, is taking advantage of President Barack Obama’s decision to refrain from military force against Syria to collect a shower of diplomatic and political dividends.
The new Iranian president Hassan Rouhani announced Tuesday that the coming meeting of the General Assembly opening in New York later this month “may prove the perfect setting to reignite talks about the nation’s nuclear program.“ The US Treasury Department accordingly lifted a string of sanctions restricting humanitarian and athletic exchanges between US and Iranian NGOs and environmental projects, as a counter-gesture of good will. Washington was not put off when that comment proved to be an exercise in image-burnishing for the benefit of the West.
That same day, the Iranian president declared his country would not give up “one iota of its nuclear capabilities.”
Opinion: This is getting hard to watch. US leadership is a thing of the past. President Obama’s fundamental transformation of America took us from superpower to average nation status in 5 short years.
If you study Bible prophecy you will know that the prince who is to come (Daniel 9:26) will rise out of one of the nations that brought about the destruction of the temple in 70 AD. Global leadership will eventually shift to the EU (revived Roman Empire).
The EU will continue to grow until a 10 (king) nation core governing body is formed (Daniel 7:24).
Using the Bible’s guardrails, expect the EU to continue to grow to 70 nations, until its footprint is identical to the ancient Roman Empire. If you combine the EU’s 27 nations with the 43 nation Mediterranean Union (Euromed), the 70 nations will equal the table of nations in Genesis 10 that repopulated the earth after the flood.
Anti-Christ, the 11th king (Daniel 7:24), will subdue three of the kings, and in Daniel 9:27 the prophet says: “He will confirm a covenant (peace treaty) with many.” That false 7 year peace marks the beginning of the 7 year Tribulation period.
