According to credible sources, Iran will have nuclear weapons by April 2012 at the latest. Intelligence reaching President Barak Obama is that by that time, Iran will already have five nuclear bombs or warheads. When that happens—and it’s inevitable—military action against Iran would generate a dangerous level of radioactive contamination across the Gulf region. Because this is the main source of the world’s energy, military intervention at that point would be unthinkable.

On Sunday, November 13, President Obama said that economic sanctions had taken an “enormous bite” out of Iran’s economy. He also said that the “U.S. is united with Russian and Chinese leaders in ensuring Iran does not develop an atomic weapon and unleash an arms race across the Middle East.” He spoke after talking to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Chinese President Hu Jintao at the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Hawaii. The conversation centered on new evidence submitted by the International Atomic Energy Agency, indicating that Iran was engaged in clandestine efforts to build a bomb.

Obama said Russian and Chinese leaders shared the goal of keeping a bomb out of Iran’s hands. As far as sanctions are concerned, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a news conference that sanctions had failed, and “now the problem should be solved though diplomatic channels.” Other than Obama, most agree that sanctions have not worked.

For the first time, however, the President stated that a nuclear Iran would be a threat to the United States. “We are not taking any options off the table. Iran with nuclear weapons would pose a threat not only to the region but also to the United States.”

Jewish leaders were informed by the Obama administration that the U.S. had intelligence there was no more than a couple of months to strike down Iran before it was too late. Israel was told the military option would no longer be viable after April, when Iran is armed with nuclear bombs or warheads. The window of opportunity to stop Iran is closing fast, especially for Israel. But each option has significant negative repercussions for Israel.

If Israel does nothing, Iran will be a nuclear adversary in four months. With Iran’s stated position of annihilating Israel, doing nothing in untenable.

Striking could cripple Iran’s nuclear capability, but just for a short period. If Israel strikes, it will have a galvanizing affect for the entire Arab, Egyptian, and Persian community, and Israel might have to face another war with enemies coming from all sides, which is what many militant Muslim jihadists desire.

Israel’s’ future is in jeopardy, and the threat to the U.S. is real. For decades, Christians have been talking about Armageddon, hoping it would come in their lifetime. They may get their wish. It could be just around the corner.
