In September Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced that "Iran is willing to provide nuclear technology to other Muslim states." Within hours, "European nations renewed an offer of economic incentives if the Mideast nation would halt its uranium enrichment" (Associated Press report, Sept. 15, emphasis added).

Does history show that appeasement of despots brings peace? British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's 1938 "peace in our time" fiasco helped pave the way for the greatest holocaust in history.

U.S. intelligence sources believe that Iran is five to 10 years from producing nuclear weapons. Few doubt they will be willing to use them.

Iran already has missiles capable of reaching most of Europe. A nuclear-armed Iran willing to share its technology with other Muslim nations will dramatically alter the balance of power in that long-troubled region.

Could this be a significant contribution to the beginning of "the end," when the "king of the South"—apparently a leader of a Muslim confederation—pushes against the "king of the North," the leader of a European superpower as prophesied in Daniel 11:40 Daniel 11:40And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.
