Iranian Nukes "A Flying Death Cam"

The Israelis are beginning to circumvent the Obama Administrations peace efforts by going directly to a last-resort source in Russia. Former Israeli Prime Minister, Shimon Perez, made a visit to Russia with Iran on his mind. Israel sees the growing connection between Moscow and Tehran. They may also be seeing a much greater danger than just the jihadist movement. Of course, that danger is outlined in Ezekiel 38 and 39.
This from the Jerusalem Post
President Shimon Peres told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev Tuesday that an Iranian nuclear bomb would mean a "flying death camp."

During a four-hour-long meeting in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi, Peres told Medvedev that "the problem with Iran is not only the desire to produce nuclear weapons, but also the character of the regime... From my point of view, a nuclear weapon in Iranian hands has only one meaning - a flying death camp.

"The fact that Iran is
investing billions of dollars in the development of long-range missiles, in parallel to its nuclear project, is clear indication of its intent," Peres told his Russian counterpart.

Medvedev assured Peres that Russia was opposed to Iran's attainment of nuclear weapons, saying that he was aware that such a scenario would "lead to a nuclear arms race of other Middle Eastern countries."

According to a statement released by the President's Office, the two leaders discussed the sale of Russian weapons to countries hostile to Israel, including Iran.

"President Peres stressed that the sale of these weapons could damage the delicate balance of power in the region, and requested the Russian president, in the name of the state of Israel, to reconsider Russian policy in regard to this, and stressed that Israel has concrete proof of Russian weapons being transferred to terrorist
organization by Iran and Syria, especially to Hamas and Hizbullah," read the statement.

Medvedev responded by saying that Russia would "reexamine the request."
As well as the Iranian nuclear standoff, the two presidents also discussed the Middle East peace process during their talks as well as strategic ties between Moscow and Jerusalem. Medvedev said that he hopes to upgrade relations between both countries to the same level as those Russia holds with European states.

Russia aspires to host an international conference to discuss the Middle East peace process.
Medvedev welcomed Peres by calling him "one of the world's most experienced politicians" and said he was ready to discuss both bilateral ties and regional challenges.

"We can touch on both Russian-Israeli ties and difficult issues related to the Middle East settlement and other regional problems," Medvedev said at the start of the talks. "There are more difficulties than we wish, but we still need to discuss them."
