A House Divided Cannot Stand

While the Democrats are busy pooh-poohing the President’s State of the Union address and denying that the war on terror is more than a handful of extremists who are angry with the United States, North Korea, China, and Russia are busy helping Iran build an atomic bomb that Iran’s leader intends to use against Israel and the United States. While the opposition to the President is sounding a lot like an al Qaeda propaganda machine, the Islamist terrorist machine is busy killing our boys in Iraq and wishing they could kill our elderly, our sons, our daughters, our wives and husbands right here on American soil.

As the President was giving his State of the Union address, the presses were burning ink on a story that North Korea and Iran have reached a cooperative agreement where North Korea will share all the data and information they received from their successful test last October with Teheran's nuclear scientists. It has been known for some time that Iranian military officials were being helped with the nuclear technology that North Korea has already garnered, but the new development, reported by the London Telegraph, indicates that North Korea will assist Iran in accelerating its nuclear development to an underground test possibly by the end of this year.

Meantime, Iran Public Radio is reporting that Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the Syrian Foreign Minister that Israel and the United States would soon be destroyed. The Iranian president also directly tied events in Lebanon to a wider plan aimed at Israel's destruction. He called on "regional countries" to "support the Islamic resistance of the Lebanese people and strive to enhance solidarity and unity among the different Palestinian groups in a bid to pave the ground for the undermining of the Zionist regime whose demise is, of course, imminent."

President George W. Bush has made a lot of mistakes in recent years and has taken some pretty bad advice on a lot of issues, but it seems that this is a time in the history of our nation that we, as Americans, need to quit bickering over minimum wage guarantees for illegal aliens, arguing over taxing Americans for their health insurance, and squabbling over a limit on funds and supplies for troops in Iraq. It seems that we have a much greater enemy before us—one that is unified and seeks our total destruction. I am reminded of the statement by Jesus in Matthew 12:25, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.”

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
