Israel’s President Shimon Peres blasted Iran’s government over the weekend—words that every world leader should take to heart.
Calling Iran the “most morally corrupt nation on earth,” President Peres pointed out that the problems with the government in Tehran go far beyond its nuclear weapons program. Its radical and extremely harsh version of Islam takes a huge toll on its own people. The government of President Ahmadinejad is responsible for the deaths of scores of its own people…in addition to the many around the world who have been killed at the hands of terrorists funded and trained by Iran.
I am so thankful that President Peres had the courage to publicly declare what Iran’s government really is. If other world leaders would exhibit the same courage, the world, and especially the nation of Israel, would be much safer. Please join me in praying today that God will open the eyes and strengthen the spines of world leaders to stand with Israel during the current crisis.
