In an address before the United Nations General Assembly, Israel’s Ambassador Ron Prosor on Thursday said that the entire world’s security is threatened by Iran’s nuclear program, not just Israel’s.

“The radical theocracy is working tirelessly to advance its nuclear capabilities, while explicitly threatening to ‘eradicate Israel from the face of the earth.’ But, let me be perfectly clear – what is at stake is not just the security of Israel; it is the security and stability of the entire world,” he said. “Make no mistake – freedom is under attack throughout the world.”

“A war is being waged against human dignity and human rights, and we must fight back,” he added. “Standing united with courage and conviction we can turn back the tide of violent extremism and safeguard the values we cherish.”

Prosor’s comments were made at an event marking the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. He asked the GA to consider what the world will be like if Iran is allowed to proceed with its nuclear ambitions. He predicted that a nuclear-armed Iran would ignite an arms race in the Middle East and provide a “nuclear umbrella” protecting terrorist groups and allowing them to act with “increasing impunity.”

US Jewish Groups Praise Tillerson’s Renewal of State Department Antisemitism Envoy

US Jewish groups reacted with praise and relief on Tuesday to the news that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is...

“This is not the world the men and women who fought vigorously 70 years ago would have hoped for,” he explained. “World War II taught us that the costs of inaction are simply too high to bear. It’s the reason this institution exists and it is the obligation that we must live up to.”

Prosor concluded with what he called a “warning to the world: do not close your eyes to the atrocities around you; do not turn away from the animosity  that ensures. It is your responsibility to speak out against hatred clearly and unequivocally.”

    A war is being raged against the Jewish civilization and the Christians. Ask yourselves what is a Jew? From a scriptural view point. Something similar to a coveted Jew has Been working diligently with God since God began his war ,with those that oppose him, since the garden of Eden. God said he was going to crush the head of the snake and Israel is his hammer. From a Christisn perspective what is a Jew. The Jews were principally the force that battled the serpent for 4000 years and delivered their savior. They did so by rejecting him…which was part of a Gods overall plan. Now the serpents ugly head has risen in the form of Islam and the only force between islam and the world is Israel along with the Christians. The focus of most of the entire world will be to eradicate the Jews and the Christians. God is now putting Israel to the task of saving the unbelieving world during the tribulation. It says in scripture that what Israel delivered for the Christians will be removed from the earth during the tribulation and therefore the age of Grace will come to an end to be replaced by the kingdom age which will be brought in by 14400 divinely protected kingdom preaching Jews who travel the world once again acting as saviors, ,preaching the kingdom of God is here. At this time Israel will be the sole sanctioned force on this earth to save the world from the serpent and from hell. Who are the regimented forces that rule and govern in hell, Islam and the dragon. Ask yourselves israel, where did you spend 400 years?…under the whip of a pyramid building Pharo? What happened to those who refused to step into gods plan during the exodus. This is serious business. Where did those who worked with God go when they died? Abrahams bossem, not hell. God has a solution for the unbelievers and the left wing lunatics who are selling out Israel. In revelation it says he opens the earth and swallows 7000 of those who warship Jstreet. You know what happens then?….Israel has a revival and warships God. It’s your choice Israel, enter into Gods kingdom eternal age, or be tormented in hell with those forces that have opposed God since the creation of earth. The opposing forces will be tormented in hell, by the serpent and Islam, for 1000 years….the millinial age, then ultimately judged at the Great White Throne judgement. Step into the kingdom age and enjoy your God given blessings that you were guaranteed to receive through Abrahams covenant. I might add that those Islamic nations that are favorable to zisrael during the tribulation enter into the milliniam favored and blessed by God…I did not say that!…God did….read scripture, read about Edom, Moab, Egypt…the antichrist knows this…that is why he is squeezing them and refuses to give them arms. Once you understand everything scripturally their are no mysterys about these times…they were all revealed in advance by YOUR prophets.

    Zachor, Remember what Amalek did to you when you were leaving Egypt; that he ambushed you on the way, and he struck those of you who were in the rear, all the weakest at your rear, when you were faint and exhausted, and he did not fear Gd. It shall be that when your Gd, gives you rest from all your enemies all around, in the land that, your Gd, gives you as an inheritance to possess it, you shall wipe out the memory of Amalek from under the heaven—you shall not forget!

    What’s most amazing to me is that this war with Amalek continues—that the world is still so concerned with the fate of Israel and the small number of Jews in the world who do not even amount to a percentage of error when calculating the world’s population. The rhetoric is apocalyptic, even Biblical. Why care about Israel and the Jews? It must be a spiritual struggle of the generations. The Torah then has been proven to be incredibly wise in warning us never to forget or worse, to underestimate Amalek the anti-Semite—no matter how he may appear.

    ON Purim and we will read the story of how Haman, a descendant of Amalek, persuaded Achashveros, King of Persia, to destroy the Jews. But it’s also the story of our time! Once again Persia threatens to destroy the Jews, only this time its name has changed. We no longer call it Persia, we call it Iran. Do you know why?

    There was a love fest between Hitler and Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Persia, from the moment Hitler came to power in 1933. The shah was enamored with the concept of the Aryan master race—especially because Nazi racial theorists referred to Aryan origins in the Proto-Indo-European lineage of Persia. So intense was the shah’s identification with the Third Reich that in 1935 he—can you believe this—renamed his ancient country “Iran,” which in Farsi means “Aryan!” From that point on, Iranians were constantly reminded that their country was bonded with Nazi Germany for all time.

    During the war years, Iran became a haven and headquarters for Gestapo agents and German operatives. In Tehran’s marketplace, it was common to see placards that declared, “In heaven, Allah is your master. On Earth, it is Adolf Hitler!” (Edwin Black, 12/19/05, JTA) And so how could the president of Iran now deny that the Holocaust ever happened when his nation is named for Hitler’s master race?

    Let there be no mistake, the ultimate agenda of Iran and Hamas—like that of Hitler’s Germany—is not simply the destruction of Israel, but of the Jewish people. But many—like we saw in the media as Hitler rose to power—prefer to put their heads in the sand hoping it will all go away. They say that President Ahmadinejad is just using anti-Semitic rhetoric to deflect having to deal with domestic problems, and that Hamas will soften when it has to deal with the responsibilities of power, like collecting the garbage.

    Remember, they also said this about Hitler, about the Ayatollah, and even the Taliban when they took control of Afghanistan. The Torah is clear, Amalek and Haman and all of Jewish history teach us that we must take our enemies for their word. They mean what they say and they say what they mean.
