Pompeo told (Radio Farda) that, while he supports many Iranian opposition groups in the United States and Europe, he does not back calls for regime change in Tehran.
“We don’t want them advocating for regime change, either…We want them working on behalf of the Iranian people, ordinary Iranian citizens who want nothing more than to live their lives, to be able to take their hijab off, to be able to go to work and raise their families and worship in the way they want to worship.”
The major problem with this policy is that totalitarian regimes, like the Islamic Republic of Iran, can’t be reformed. Remember “Communism with a human face”? We never saw it. more …
Opinion: Excerpts: Antichrist: The Search for Amalek:
Six hundred years after Saul spared King Agag, the Amalekite, his descendants assimilated into Persia (Iran) and one of them, Haman, the Agagite, rose to prominence as a noble and vizier to King Ahasuerus, (Esther 3).
Haman was an Agagite, a descendant of Agag, king of Amalek. An Agagite is an Amalekite, and Amalek was a descendant of Esau.
Haman, also known as “Haman the Evil,” desired to wipe out all the Jews of Persia, having inherited the same long-standing tradition of Amalek and Esau.
We are told in Obadiah 1:6 that Esau will be searched out. Esau’s deceptive cunning is hidden, while Jacob is easy to identify. Politically, the spirit of Esau (antichrist) comes in peacefully, but once in power, his evil intentions become obvious, and removing him from power is impossible short of war.
There would be approximately 3100 years between Haman and Muhammad but astonishingly, the Persians of Iran accepted his religion, hook, line, and sinker. You see, it was Muhammad, who after being rejected as the Jewish Messiah by three Jewish clans in Saudi Arabia, made it his mission to kill all the Jews in the Arabian Peninsula (see Blood Feud chapter 2 here).
In the same way, the final Antichrist will be a peace maker, and negotiate a treaty (Daniel 9:27) between Arabs and Jews and allow the Jews to build a temple and re-institute animal sacrifice. The Jews will reject him, causing Antichrist to fly into a rage and try once again to fulfill Genesis 27:41 and kill his brother Jacob.
But God intervenes:
Matthew 24:15-16 God tells the Jews to flee to the mountains (southern Jordan) when Antichrist stands in the temple and declares himself god.
Daniel 11:41-42 God promises that He will protect all of Jordan from the Antichrist because His people will be hiding in the south.
Isaiah 63:1-3 Jesus goes to Edom and His robe is stained red from the blood of the Edomites.
Zechariah 12:10 Jesus appears to the Jews who are hiding in the mountains of southern Jordan (Mt. Seir, Petra) where they acknowledge Him and are saved (Romans 11:26)
