United Nations Speaks Out
The United Nations nuclear agency has said this week that Iran must address the concerns that are being raised about its suspected atom bomb research. This UN directive came one day after Tehran alleged that some “terrorists” had infiltrated their organization to sabotage their uranium enrichment plants. Iran has always alleged that their nuclear program is peaceful, but has refused to slow their uranium enrichment, which could be used to build bombs. British Foreign Secretary William Hague said, “We will be intensifying those sanctions in the coming weeks and months in the absence of successful negotiations.” Britain is not in favor of an Israeli military strike against Iran.
Israel is taking Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad seriously as he leads his people chanting: “Death To Israel/Death To America.” Israel sees Iran’s atomic program as a means for them to carry out that threat. Israel warns the world that the sanctions, although increased, are failing to keep Iran from moving forward with their enrichment plans.
Western diplomats said they expect the next U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) meeting to be held sometime in October.
Once again Song For Israel urges you to pray for this volatile situation in the Middle East. God asks us to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem.”
