They wouldn't happen to be a growing threat to Israel, would they? Like promising to wipe Israel off the map?
Nah...just move along...
Seems Iran has a lot of earthquakes. Will Obama send them aid?
Must be the will of Allah

(...Was that okay?)
Hopefully the place where they are making their nukes caved in.

Pray for the innocent.
Pray for death for the mullahs.

I wondered if maybe the Iranian ragheads decided to test a nuke underground and that set off the earthquakes.

Prayers up nonetheless.

No, but I think Harry Reid has introduced a bill to send Iran a new set of tectonic plates.
Actually, Japans Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a flurry of anti-Israel comments leading up to their 9.0 earthquake.

The Japanese Government is determined to continue its support to the Palestinian people, said Mr. Naofumi Hashimoto, Representative of Japan to the Palestinian National Authority. This support comes from a human security perspective as well as from its political stand for the Palestinian efforts to establish a viable independent Palestinian state and to develop the capacities of governmental and local institutions in providing basic daily services to people.

God gave the warning:
I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. (Genesis 12:3, NKJV)
The fact that godless, pagan, demonic nations reject the God Who gave that promise and disregard what He has said will happen doesn't cancel out what He said.
We can expect more of these un-natural disasters and we can expect them to get worse, including in America.
God says what He means and means what He says. And the fact that there are human beings who don't believe that couldn't be more irrelevant.

We do not need to send aid. The Russians will gladly do that.
About 3-4 weeks ago there was a lot of earthquake activity in South Western Iran. Now North Western Iran moves.
