Bibi the Prophet
The Jerusalem Connection (PDF Online) ^ | Jan/Feb 2007 | James M. Hutchens

Posted on 02/09/2007 7:04:48 PM PST by Salem

Jim Hutchens Chaplain (Brigadier General) US Army (Ret.) President, The Jerusalem Connection, InternationalLike many today, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Natanyahu has made the obvious connection between Nazi Germany of the 30’s and Jihadist Iran of today. Speaking to the delegates of the annual United Jewish Communities General Assembly, Natanyahu declared repeatedly, “It’s 1938 and Iran is Germany.” Incredibly, the reported response of the crowd was tepid. At best he was largely damned with faint praise. Is it possible that many in the modern secular/liberal Jewish community in America are in the same state of denial as many of the Jews were in Germany in the 30’s?

“It’s 1938 and Iran is Germany. And Iran is racing to arm itself with atomic bombs,” Natanyahu declared to his audience that we must “believe him and stop him — this we must do. Everything else pales before this.” With Israel’s preemptive strike against Iraq’s nuclear reactor in June of 1981 as a precedent, Natanyahu predicted that stopping Iran required “preemptive leadership. Preemption requires will and vision.” “No one,” he proclaimed, “will defend the Jews if the Jews don’t defend themselves — Iran’s nuclear ambitions must be stopped.” Only the delusional leadership in the U.S. and Israel will deny the reality of Natanyahu’s assessment.

Now comes former Secretary of State James Baker, a proven Arabist with an anti- Zionist record. His Iraq Study Group, along with the tainted counsel of former National Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft, (see the Lekarev Report on page 5) would have us believe that the key to the solution in Iraq is to solve the Israel-Palestinian problem. Say what? Contriving this connection serves only the purposes of the anti-Israel forces in Iraq, Iran, the Palestinians and much to our shame, too much of American leadership and policy makers.

Furthermore, they tell us we should embrace Iran because they have the capacity to control the sectarian violence on Iraq. The trade off, as Dick Morris notes well in his article, Baker’s Sellout Plan on page 19, will be to allow Iran to fulfill its nuclear ambitions. In a word we are going to supercharge Iran’s race for the atomic bomb. Unbelievably, we are facing the same “peace in our time” crowd that was wooed and won by Prime Minister Chamberlain in 1939. (see Suzanne Fields’ article on page 12). And unless we awaken from this insanity — from this flight from common sense, we can expect the same, beginning with an attempt to annihilate the Jews, unprecedented war and devastation, only this with Islamic Jihadism. First the Saturday people, the Jews. Then the Sunday people, the Christians.

It is imperative, especially for Christian Zionists, to consider all this in light of the Scriptures. We do believe that God is sovereign and remains in ultimate control in spite of the dark clouds looming. “The Lord has established His throne in heaven and his kingdom rules over all.” (Psalm 103:19). Not only is God in control, but he has placed in authority those whom He has chosen for His purposes. “The Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone He wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men.” (Daniel 4:17).

Further, there is the sobering reality of God’s words. “I will bless those who bless you and him who curses you, I will curse.” (Genesis 12:3). Only God knows, but there are those alive today in our beloved America as well as elsewhere who put themselves under this curse because of their treatment of the Jews. There are also those who break God’s commandments and covenants, of whom it is written, they shall be called “least in the Kingdom of God.” (Matthew 5:19).

On a more positive note, we are pleased to announce that Walid Shoebat will be serving as a Contributing Editor for our magazine with an article in each forthcoming issue. (see his article on page 8). Walid’s story (Why I Left Jihad) is one of God’s triumphants of grace. Born in Bethlehem and raised as a committed Muslim, he joined Yasser Arafat’s PLO terrorists. When later confronted with the gospel of Jesus Christ, he believed and was transformed. He is convinced that it is the transforming power of Jesus alone as revealed in the Gospel that can change radical, jihadist Muslims. Welcome Walid, we are honored to partner with you.

I would say that he is close, but incorrect. Iran is not like pre-war Germany, it is like pre-war Japan. In fact, the parallels are striking.

1) The typical Iranian on the street knows that his country should be a world power. The Japanese felt the same way, looking for "their place in the sun". Both were also mistaken as to how they should achieve this power, through aggression.

2) Both blame the United States for "keeping them down". In the case of Japan is was the US dominating the Pacific, and interfering with Japan's efforts to get both oil and steel. And both felt if they can just get the US out of their neighborhood, they would utterly dominate their region.

3) They both understand that a primary target must be at least one US aircraft carrier fleet, hopefully more. (This makes the two fleets in the Gulf right now almost an irresistible target. Since Iran cannot destroy any more than that, much of their strategy is to keep other US carriers out of the region.)

4) Unlike Japan, the Iranians have an additional problem. Once again, the typical Iranian on the street has unrealistic expectations about what having a nuclear weapon will do for his country. They equate it with instant respect, that other nations must do what you say, and that you are instantly "in the club" of world powers.

The parallels continue from there, not that it should be any more reassuring to the Israelis, any more than the Japanese threat was to the Koreans and Chinese.

LOL!!  ! No, but I can see that might be implied by the picture at that place in the article.

No, that's Rev. James M. Hutchens, Ph.D. Chaplain (Brigadier General) US Army (Ret) President, The Jerusalem Connection International USA.

He's the author of the article.

Thanks, that is a very interesting assessment. I recall some of those same national characteristics being attributed to India, before their entrance into the nuclear club.

Fortunate for us, Hinduism isn't a blood-thirsty totalitarian belief system bent on global domination.  !

FIRST, Bibi isn't in office currently for power. SECOND, ex-Senator Santorum gets it as well as Bibi, without the stress of Israeli politics ... meaning, it is valid regardless of standing perspective.

Like JESUS, BIBI is one RIGHTEOUS MAN standing up to EVIL. More power to you BIBI! Recently the arabs are setting up a fuss over the renovation of the Mug... ramp at the temple mount, fearing that the jews will bring down the AL AQSA Mosque.

Maybe BIBI should tell them : another WAR against Israel like last summer by hezbullah, sponsored by iran, and we WILL pull it down. We've already laid the cornerstone for the third temple(to fulfill scripture), we've LONG had it planned down to the last detail.

Push us hard enough with your incurable hatred, and we'll DO IT !!! And go ahead with your armaggedon number, we're READY for that too.....ISRAEL FOREVER...

I think the primary concern is denial of Iran's intentions by the West. By 1938 Japan had already been at war throughout Asia, and there was no doubt as to its ultimate intentions. With Germany, however, her European neighbors acted as if they each thought if they were just cooperative enough, Hitler's appetite would be sated before he got to them. Even Poland cozied up to Hitler to snack on the remains of Czechoslovakia-- right before they got swallowed up themselves.

It is the denial of the danger that is salient here--and Bibi is playing the role of Churchill, who began to warn the world in 1934, but was ridiculed and ignored by the "realists" who figured that just a little bit of appeasement could buy them "peace in our time."

If we are indeed in the end times, the only island of safety will be with jesus and israel. I believe dostoievsky(sp?)described the coming chaos in his literary work : a tiny island of sanity in a raging river of destruction. Hang on for dear life, to YISRAEL, GOD'S chosen people. I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you.
