Breitbart: “Huckabee’s implicit reference to the Holocaust – and his statement that President Obama’s Iran deal facilitates a second Holocaust – has driven typical faux outrage from the same left that labeled President Bush a genocidal maniac and labels modern Republicans warmongers who embrace nuclear annihilation.

So, were Huckabee’s comments “appropriate”? Of course they were. They were also factually correct.

Questions of appropriateness routinely ignore the history of both presidential politics and politics in general. In 1964, LBJ infamously accused Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater of facilitating a nuclear holocaust against American children. In 2012, Vice President Joe Biden accused Mitt Romney of wanting to put black people “back in chains.” The Obama campaign accused Mitt Romney of having a man fired, destroying health insurance for both him and his wife, and leaving his wife insuranceless while dying of cancer.”

Opinion: As a former Baptist pastor, I’m guessing that Governor Huckabee was referencing the tribulation period that prophesies severe death and destruction of up to two-thirds of those who enter the 7 year period (Zechariah 13:8-9), but due to political expediency Huckabee stopped short of saying that.

And that is a shame. As a former pastor, he should also know of the Ezekiel 33:1-6 warning about not warning!

The Times Of Israel: “Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday called on Washington officials to stop using threatening language against Tehran, hitting back at comments by US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Rouhani’s statement, published by the semi-official Fars news agency, came after Kerry said Thursday that the military option remains on the table vis-a-vis Iran, in case it does not adhere to the agreement on its nuclear program reached with world powers earlier this month.

“The US should know that it has no other option but respecting Iran and showing modesty towards the country and saying the right thing,” Rouhani told a crowd in the western Iranian city of Sanandij on Sunday.”

Opinion: The smiles are gone, the veiled threats begin and Israel is in the crosshairs.

The decision to approve the deal now lies with the Republican Congress who, so far, has given the president 100% support.

Arutz Sheva: “US Secretary of State John Kerry indirectly conceded that the US would defend Iran’s nuclear program from Israeli sabotage on Thursday, in a hearing at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in which he was grilled over the deal reached last Tuesday.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) put Kerry on the spot when he asked him and Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz whether the controversial articles in Annex III on page 142 of the 159-page deal would stipulate that the US block Israeli attempts to scupper the Iranian nuclear threat.

The articles in question state that the US, world powers, and the EU obligate to “co-operation through training and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to protect against, and respond to nuclear security threats, including sabotage.”

Opinion: It is amazing how this fits the prophetic scenario. Israel was and is called to be separate from the nations (Numbers 23:9) and a royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9). At the conclusion of the future war of Gog and Magog, they will turn to God and know that their victory was divine (Ezekiel 39:22).

In Hosea 5:15 we find that Jesus will go back to His place until the Jews admit their guilt and in Matthew 23:39 Jesus Himself says that before the Jews will see Him again, they will say, “blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

That happens near the end of the Tribulation, when the Jews have all but lost hope, they will receive Yeshua as their Messiah (Zechariah 12:10, Romans 9:27-28, Romans 11:25-27).

I can’t help but feeling that it is very close.
