During the political debates the question of Iran has been raised several times. The foreign policy of Ron Paul has been brought into question by all of the candidates. "Ron Paul would be a dangerous president," Perry said. "He would have us ignore all of the warning signs of another brutal dictator who wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. I won't. He would wait until one of our cities is wiped off of the map until he reacted. I won't wait."
As for Paul, Bachmann criticized him as misguided about foreign threats to U.S. interests.
Mitt Romney said, "The greatest threat that Israel faces and frankly the greatest threat the world faces is a nuclear Iran," he said. "One of the people running for president thinks it's OK for Iran to have a nuclear weapon. I don't. I don't trust the ayatollahs. I don't trust Ahmadinejad. I don't trust those who backed Hamas and Hezbollah. I'm concerned that fissile material ultimately will find its way into the hands of terrorists and ultimately create mayhem in the world."
Gingrich said during a radio interview, according to National Journal. “He doesn’t want to blame the bad guys. … He dismisses the danger of an Iranian nuclear weapon and seems to be indifferent to the idea that Israel could be wiped out.
Huntsman has said the US and Israel will have to consider the military option to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, because economic sanctions won't be enough.
Who will a war with Iran really help? America or Israel? Did we really secure democracy in Iraq? How close to democracy is Afghanistan one year or ten more? Look at those who pushed us into a war with Iraq using the same rationale to go to war with Iran-weapons of mass destruction. We don’t need another war to protect the interest of Israel.
Let’s face it people can’t help noticing that a pro-Israel faction has entered into the Republican Conservative language. No one wants to say what is evident in all the media, the Republican leadership and the Republican candidates—the Neoconservatives are running this election. To talk about the hidden agenda of these “newly made conservative” puts a person in line to be called a bigot, anti-Sematic or unpatriotic. They have no problem pursuing their goals even at the expense of the truly Constitutional candidate. They have influenced US foreign policy in the direction of protecting Israel.
Don’t get me wrong I understand the importance of Israel not only to the Neoconservatives but to the Christians who strongly support Israel. I am not an enemy of Israel, I don’t hate Jews nor do I want to see the destruction of Israel. If those who claim to be such supporters of Israel would allow Israel to be the sovereign nation it was established to be, they would solve their neighboring problems without the loss of American lives. If we are such a friend to Israel why do we keep arming their enemies? We need to stop allowing the elite and powerful from manipulating our country into wars that weaken us as a nation. We need to fully understand that those who are forcing us into these wars have an agenda that is not in the best interest of our country.
What I find frightening is that many of the Neoconservative’s who are Jewish and strong supporters of the Israeli government have allied themselves with Christians whose “love” for Israel comes only from their desire to see the end time prophecies fulfilled. Many Christians who profess a “love” for Israel do not wish to see a resolution to the conflict in the Middle East. In order for there to be a fulfillment of the end time prophecies there must be Armageddon—which is actually suicidal for Israel. In actuality there is no true love for Israel by Christians who have an end time doctrine that advocates the destruction of Israel. The word “Armageddon” appears only once in the entire Bible and is found in Revelation 16:16. If you open God’s Word and read this passage yourself along with the verses immediately before and after it, you will be amazed at what you will find and not find in regards to the battle of Armageddon.
Take a look for yourself: Revelation 16:12-21 “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. 17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”
This is what Christians who profess to love and bless Israel are praying will happen soon. The inconsistency of the doctrinal teachings of Christians who profess a love for Israel and the desire for the Rapture which can only happen by making Israel the sacrificial lamb is no more than a self-serving love. The agenda of the Christians who are looking for the Rapture must encourage the ongoing violent struggle in the Middle-East or Christ will not return.
So when I see both the Neoconservative Jews and Christian Zionist coming together I wonder who is being used by whom?
You might ask who the Neoconservatives are--they are not conservatives. They are Progressives, in favor of big government control, more security laws, and a global government. They are the reason that so many in other countries dislike America, because of their desire to unite the globe in the name of American-style Democracy, whether other countries like it or not. They are the ones who involve us in foreign wars and foreign aid causes that have nothing to do with us. With their deceitful ways of running as a Republican, they have been voted in over and over and have succeeded in making America more and more global in foreign policy and less and less isolationist all the while promoting a welfare state and favoring business moving manufacturing to other countries.
This brings me back to the beginning. Why are we so concerned about Iran? Both Neoconservatives and the Christian Zionist share unwavering support for Israel, which they see as crucial to US empowerment in the Middle East. They see Israel as a key military outpost. Both groups believe that anti-Americanism and anti-globalization is unwarranted. Both groups advocate the entire destruction and rebuilding of the Middle East into a US dominated political and financial transformation of the region. Where the Neoconservatives desire ruling a secular world and the Christian Zionist desire ruling with Jesus Christ. Iran is just another stepping stone on the way to bringing about the desires of the Neoconservatives and the prophecies of the Christian Zionist under the guise of protecting Israel.
The US/Israel occupation of Arab land and the security of Israel remains a fundamental principal to be upheld by Neoconservatives in the US Government who traditionally support whatever Israeli government is in power and the Christian Zionist who continue to support the actions of Israel regardless of right or wrong-- all to bring about the Rapture.
Just as a side note—beware of those who favor: large government control, war, foreign aide to help other countries, the spread of American Democracy to foreign countries, globalism, and have a dislike for isolationist foreign policy and supports security at the price of liberty and freedom; these individuals are not what America needs-- they are enemies of our Constitution and will destroy our liberties and freedom to enslave us to their own agenda of world domination.
Before you jump to conclusions, I do believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
