Luke 21:20-22 “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city.
“Hardly a day goes by when our senses are not bludgeoned by some new outbreak of terrorism in the Middle East. Despite our best efforts at making and keeping the peace, political, economic, and religious tensions often lead to unrest, violence, and riots.”
-Jim Bakker in “Prosperity and the Coming Apocalypse”
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast deplored the recent allegations made by the Israeli president against Iran, and cautioned that the threats and aggressive moves made by the Zionist regime leaders are posing a major threat to the regional peace and security.
“Everybody knows better than us that the existence of the illegitimate Zionist regime and its threats and aggression against the surrounding countries as well as the crimes committed by this regime are the main threat to the region,” Mehman-Parast told reporters in his weekly press conference here in Tehran on Tuesday.
He stated that the claims raised by the Zionist officials about Iran are aimed at intimidating the regional countries and portraying Iran as a threat.
Mehman-Parast added that such claims also aim to overshadow the destabilizing presence of the Zionist regime in the region and derail current developments and popular movements in the region.
The remarks by the Iranian Foreign Ministry presser came after Shimon Peres claimed that Iran has a negative influence on the region.
“Tehran does not want establishment of a stable Middle East, but it wants to take control of it through stirring tensions through Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza Strip,” the president of the Quds occupying regime alleged.
Earlier in July, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad described the Zionist regime of Israel as the greatest threat posed to the region, and urged the regional states to take the necessary actions to contain this threat.
“Effort should be made to take all measures to contain this fake regime,” President Ahmadinejad said in a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu here in Tehran, and cautioned that “any move in line with the Zionist regime’s goals and objectives means committing suicide”.
