What is the biggest political issue in the world?

Some could credibly argue human abortion. After all, 125,000 human beings die every day around the world at the hands of human abortionists.

The political left sneers at this contention.

Some would argue that the biggest issue is climate change or gay rights.

The political right sneers at these contentions.

Others would talk about hunger issues or human rights, and they’ll get some supporters from both sides of the aisle.

I think there may be a bigger issue: the growing threat of an all-out nuclear war. President Obama is greasing the skids for such a possibility by apparently acceding to every demand Iran is making to develop their own bomb.

Obama’s only tepid request: that Iran wait a decade before they finish their bomb.

Here’s my concern: Iran’s rhetoric toward our friend, Israel, has been anything but tepid. A few examples:

José María Aznar, a former prime minister of Spain, recounted a particularly hateful comment the Ayatollah Khamenei made to him about Israel:

“Israel, to him, was a kind of historical cancer, an anomaly, a country to be put in flames and condemned to disappear. Khamenei said very clearly that Iran must eliminate Israel and wipe it off the map.”

Just to be sure everyone knew where Iran stands on the subject, Ayatollah Khamenei amplified his nation’s position regarding Israel in this sermon from 2000:

“Iran’s position, which was first expressed by the Imam [Khomeini]…is that the cancerous tumor called Israel must be uprooted from the region.”

The next month, he reiterated his country’s position, just in case anyone missed it before:

“The foundation of the Islamic regime is opposition to Israel and the perpetual subject of Iran is the elimination of Israel from the region.”

A couple of years ago, he made the politically-incorrect statement that “Israelis should not be called humans.”

Maj. Gen. Ataollah Salehi, Commander-in-Chief of the Iranian Army, said Iran is ready to strike Israel quickly:

“According to the Supreme Leader’s statement marking Nowruz, if Israel acts foolishly, Tel Aviv and Haifa will be annihilated….The armed forces are prepared with all their power to execute the orders of the Supreme Leader in minimum time.”

How do you feel about Iran with nuclear capabilities? Get ready. Apparently, it’s only a matter of time if the Obama administration gets its way.

Political commentator, Bill Whittle, has simple advice for us in his video commentary above: “take Iran at their word.”

Trust their sincerity in wishing every Jew and every American dead.

A nuclear Iran is a prescription for holocaust.

    I think we can trust Iran to follow through on their threats to annihilate the Jews. They are motivated, and soon they’ll have the means.

    Our POTUS won the peace prize when he took office. The country was ripe for change. Ever since, he seems to be on a mission to convince the world and more likely himself that he’s worthy of the honor. Making friends with our enemies in itself can be a noble thing, but to ignore those ho want death to our country cannot be ignored. In so doing we become weak in the eyes of the world. There was only one Prince of Peace and he lived over 2000 years ago. There will never be true peace until he returns. Sorry, Barry, you don’t deserve the award.

      He won the award before he had done anything. It was all based on rhetoric, or more accurately, hot air.

    It’s discouraging to me that no one, in Congress, the courts, or anywhere, seems to have the guts and wherewithal to stop Obama’s abuse of power. By the time he’s out of office, it may be too late

      It IS amazing. The damage being done is profound.
