Joel Rosenberg: “Israel— Despite President Obama’s insistence that his nuclear deal with Iran will make the world safer and more secure, it is already driving Iran’s leaders into a “massive military shopping spree” in Russia that will make the Mideast and the world far more dangerous.
For example, Iran’s leaders say they expect to take possession of the Russian S-300 missile system — the most advanced anti-aircraft missile system ever built by the Kremlin — by the end of the year. This billion-dollar system, which Iran has been seeking for years, is state-of-the-art. It would make it far more difficult for any nation’s air force to successfully strike Iran’s nuclear sites in the future.
This raises a sobering question. Does the Israeli government consider the procurement and imminent deployment of the S-300 system in Iran a “red line”? That is, would such a development force Israel’s hand by persuading her leaders to launch a massive preemptive strike before the S-300 could become operational?
Opinion: It is fascinating to see Iran and Russia making deals. The Prophet Ezekiel 38-39 wrote about such an alliance between Iran and Russia as part of a 7 nation force that will attack Israel in the days just preceding the tribulation period.
Could the Iran deal and a pre-emptive Israeli strike light the fuse for that war?
The outcome of the war is equally fascinating, because Israel will win a miraculous victory (Ezekiel 38:18-23) and will know that it was God’s hand that saved them:
“So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day forward.” Ezekiel 39:22
