What’s Iran got to do with the Geula (Coming redemption), good question?  We find in Medrish “Yalkut Shimoni” (Yeshiya 60)…

“Rabbi Yitzhak said nearly 2,000 years ago:  The year that Melech Ha Moshiach will be revealed, all the kings of the nations of the world will provoke each other.

The Iranian Threat

The king of Persia (Iran) will threaten the King of Arabia (Saudi Arabia) and because of this, the king of Arabia will go to the king of Edom (the west) for advice.

Afterwards, the king of Persia will destroy the world.  The remaining nations will be overcome with hysteria and frantically falling on their faces and will be seized as if by “birth pains”.

The people of Israel will be frantic and hysterical and they will say, where will we come and go?  Where will we come and go?

Hashem will say to them: Do not fear my children, do not fear.  All that I have done I did only for you.  Why are you afraid?  The time for your Redemption has come!

Now back to our original question.  Todays Persia (Iran) is in the process of taking over Iraq’s political infrastructure and infiltrating its military and security apparatus.

Not satisfied with overcoming a once determined enemy Iran has launched a follow-up offensive in neighbouring Syria.

With the express purpose of imposing its revolutionary zeal on a divided Middle East.  This was made possible by Barak Obama overturning traditional Middle East policy and replacing it with a pro- Iran stance.

Flawed Agreement

Obama undertook this policy about-face while at the same time facilitating Iran’s nuclear ambitions through a flawed nuclear agreement.

Obama did not stop there in fact by his actions Syria and Iran gained extensively within the region.

And while the Trump administration makes all the right noises policy substance is very thin on the ground.

Right Noises

In the meantime, Iran (Persia) continues to destabilise Iraq, Syria, Yemen and threatens the northern borders of Israel.

And all this under the very nose of the United States of America.

Along with Putin’s Russia and the erstwhile Erdogan, Iran is preparing for war and that war can only result in the West belatedly taking military action against the Russia, Iran, Turkey coalition.

Hassan Rouhani, Vladimir Putin, Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Any war that involves Putin, Erdogan, and the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei can only bring massive destruction to not only the Middle East but the entire world.

If not managed appropriately we will find ourselves on the brink of destruction.

The Geula (Redemption) is knocking at the door!

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
