“Hundreds of thousands of Iranians rallied on Friday [Feb. 10] to swear allegiance to their clerical leaders and reject U.S. President Donald Trump’s warning that he had put the Islamic Republic ‘on notice,’ state TV reported . . . They carried ‘Death to America’ banners and effigies of Trump while a military police band played traditional Iranian revolutionary songs” (Parisa Hafezi, “Hundreds of Thousands Rally in Iran Against Trump, Chant ‘Death to America’: TV,” Reuters, Feb. 10, 2017).
Some in the West also oppose U.S. attempts to keep Iran from becoming a nuclear power. It’s an unnerving time, with powers trying to emerge and shift into predominance on the world scene. Some are so resentful of U.S. power and affluence that they prefer to see America humiliated even if it means a threat to global stability and civilization itself—as an Iran with nuclear weapons is exactly that (search for “nuclear Iran” at ucg.org to learn more).
It will take God’s Kingdom of peace being established throughout the earth by the returning Jesus Christ to bring about a lasting solution to what we see in the headlines every day. (Source: Reuters).
