Rouhani Skates around Holocaust Question

An excerpt from the blog of Joel C. Rosenberg, an American Christian who is an expert on middle east geopolitics and Bible prophecy. He believes that the Iranian leadership is determined to destroy Israel and start a world war that will end when the '12th Imam' or Mahdi, returns to life and rules the world. Ahmedinejad and the Ayatollah are both believers in this scenario and Rosenberg suggests that Rouhani is also a believer.

Is Rouhani honestly pursuing peace? Or is he buying time while in the process of making nuclear weapons? If the latter is the case, then the ruse is a brilliant one. Engaging Barack Obama in talks will ensure that the US will not bomb the Iranian nuclear facilities in the near future. However, Israel is convinced that Iran is close to producing nuclear weapons and may have to bomb the nuclear facilities alone. That would make Israel the aggressor and give the US an excuse to not intervene when Iran and it's ally Russia attack Israel. 

Search "Iran" on this blog for more info on this subject.

"If you watched the portion of Ann Curry’s interview with new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that aired last night during NBC Nightly News, you may have come away with the image of a reformer who wants to work with President Obama and vows never to build nuclear weapons," reports the website, Mediaite.

"But a slightly different picture emerged in remarks shown this morning on the Today Show. Curry asked Rouhani point blank about comments his predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, made in the past about the Holocaust being a 'myth.' She asked Rouhani, 'Do you agree?'

The answer he gave may not exactly be comforting to Jewish people in America, Israel or anywhere else in the world. 'I’m not a historian,' Rouhani began. 'I’m a politician. What is important for us is that the countries of the region, and the people, grow closer to each other and that they are able to prevent aggression and injustice.'"

"Curry did not press Rouhani for a firmer answer on that question, but rather went on to ask if he, like Ahmadinejad, wants to 'wipe Israel off the map,'" Mediaite noted. "Again his answer avoided specifics in favor of generalities. 'We do not seek war with any country,' Rouhani responded. 'We seek seek peace and friendship among the nations of the region.'

He took a similar tack when Curry asked about Iranian access to websites like Twitter and Facebook. Rouhani did not say specifically whether his government would remove its censorship, but rather that 'people must have full access to all information world wide.' Before signing off, Curry told Today’s Savannah Guthrie that Rouhani’s 'non-answer' about the Holocaust 'will likely raise a lot of eyebrows.'"

As I've reported before (see here, here, and here), Rouhani is no moderate. He is a dangerous man trying to buy time for Iran to build not just one nuclear warhead, but an entire arsenal. He and his regime must be stopped before it is too late.
