“Wise words bring approval, but fools are destroyed by their own words.” Ecclesiastes 10:12
As Iran meets with other world nations to explain their nuclear ambitions, the rhetoric heats up and a war of words is already in full swing. Instead of the “War of the Worlds” or “World War III” we will just call it “Word Wars” …for now!
Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani One of Iran’s most influential ruling clerics called Friday on the Muslim states to use nuclear weapons against Israel, assuring them that while such an attack would annihilate Israel, it would cost them, “damages only.”
Daniel Carmon, deputy director general of the Israeli Foreign Ministry, called Iran “a threat to the entire world,” stressing that “this threat requires an immediate response.”
“The Obama administration is concerned that Israel could attack Iranian nuclear facilities this year, having given Washington little or no warning,” said Cliff Kupchan, a former State Department official who specialized in Iran policy during the Clinton administration and recently returned from meetings with Israeli officials. He said Israel “has refused to assure Washington that prior notice would be provided.”
“Whoever says ‘later’ may find that later is too late,” Barak of Israel said. He switched from Hebrew to English for the last phrase: “later is too late.”
Word wars will lead the way to World Wars and eventually to the Battle of Armageddon.
