Constitutional Emergency

Where Do the Candidates for the Republican Primary Nomination for POTUS Stand on the Issue of Iran, Israel and the Middle East?

The nation and world are watching the GOP candidates in Iowa (photo credit:

What message will the voters of Iowa send the nation and the world tonight regarding the future of U.S. policy towards Israel and Iran? The stakes couldn't be higher.

There's a real possibility that Texas Congressman Ron Paul could win. But he would be a disaster as Commander-in-Chief. His comments just this past week have proven how oblivious he is on foreign policy. Of Iran, Paul said, "They don't threaten our national security." Paul said there's no evidence Iran wants to build a bomb, and even if they did they wouldn't use them. He said, "If I were an Iranian, I'd like to have a nuclear weapon, too." He views economic sanctions against Iran as "an act of war" and believes the sanctions should be removed. He said he would severely slash defense spending and bring all U.S. military forces home from the Middle East and Asia, despite mounting dangers from Iran and North Korea. Paul has made similarly outrageous statements in the past. He has said he would end all military aid to Israel and would not come to Israel's defense if Iran attacked. As I noted recently on the blog, Paul's foreign policy of appeasement, abandoning Israel, turning a blind eye to Radical Islam and gutting the U.S. military would represent a total surrender and invite aggression.

All of the other GOP candidates have countered Paul on his views, especially Speaker Gingrich and Rep. Bachmann. But none have been as principled and consistent in his support of Israel and his commitment to stop Iran as former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. He was especially effective on NBC's "Meet The Press" on Sunday. "Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum said he would use air strikes against Iran unless the country dismantled its nuclear program or allowed inspectors to verify that the work isn't aimed at making a weapon," reported Bloomberg News. Santorum said he would make it clear to the leaders of Iran, "You either open up those facilities, you begin to dismantle them and make them available to inspectors, or we will degrade those facilities through air strikes. Iran will not get a nuclear weapon under my watch." Santorum was the first candidate to put a substantive plan on the table to neutralize the Iran threat, and is committed to working closely with the State of Israel, rather than undermine Israel. He has made clear he doesn't want another war in the Middle East, but that we are running out of options and we can't blink now. If all other measures fail, then he will use force. He believes we must stop Iran from getting the Bomb no matter what. He remains the most resolute GOP presidential candidate in the field on supporting Israel and countering Iran, though Gov. Romney has, to his credit, spoken out more on the issue in recent months. On today's blog, I have posted an updated analysis of all the GOP contenders.

I'm not endorsing any candidate in this cycle. I don't believe that's the specific role God has given me at this stage in my life, and there are many issues of policy and character and experience voters need to consider in choosing a President, not just one's positions on Israel and Iran. That said, my readers know that I believe the Iran threat to U.S. and Israeli national security will be one of the top issues facing the U.S. in 2012 and beyond, and I have to be honest that I remain deeply concerned by the support Ron Paul is getting in Iowa -- and elsewhere in the country -- given Paul's policy of appeasement and weakness towards Iran.

Thus, I'm praying hard and watching closely at what message Iowans will send tonight to the nation and the world on these issues. Hope you will be, too.

NO ONE RATIONAL wants war, but the Islamic Shariah-controlled state of Iran is a "theocracy," controlled by the radical elements of Islam and that's why they are the leading state sponsor of terror around the world.  Iran has close ties with Russia, China, Venezuela and North Korea.  Iran and its radical clerics are Shi'ite muslims and they wholeheartedly believe in an end times (eschatology) event ..... where they are waiting for their Islamic Savior, called the 12th Imam, (the great Mahdi).  In addition, the Shi'ite muslims believe that they can usher in the Apocalyptic end times and hasten the return of the 12th Imam by creating chaos and destruction.  These folks are hell-bent on building up an arsenal of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction to unleash upon Israel and the United States ...... and any other western civilized power.  They have secretly developed numerous nuclear plants and defended their position to the IAEA ..... that these nuclear facilities are for "energy" and not for developing nuclear weapons.  But this absolutely is a LIE .... because Iran is a leading producer of oil and gas .... and therefore, really has no need of additional sources of energy .... they are playing "politics" to stall for time ... so they can develop their cache of weapons and start planning and preparing for their nuclear holocaust.  WAR is not a good thing ... and it's always a last resort.  We would rather have diplomacy and peace, but the problem is that you can never have and sustain a lasting peace treaty with dictators and tyrants ..... because they are as George Bush called them "a part of the Axis of Evil" and dictators always break their word. 

So what should be our strategy to counter the threat that Iran poses ..... as a rogue nation, seeking to acquire nuclear weapons capability?  First, we have to identify the "enemy" and then ...... implement policies that engage them on the international level and stay away from policies that "appease" them and give in to their whims ..... because they will never respect weakness ..... this is why Ronald Reagan believed in "Peace through Strength."  We must never succumb and give in to the notion that neglecting our military by policies of disarmament .... will make us safer!

It is unfortunate that .... throughout the world ..... there are many that hold to some very evil ideologies.  This is reality and we must accept this.  Fortunately for us, we have been blessed for so many years because America was a Beacon of Light and a defender of truth and ..... all that is good.  But, as you know, we've fallen into some serious economic chaos ........ because, "We the People," fell asleep and allowed many wolves to get into government and .... whittle away our freedoms and .... over the years they have been able to develop policies to seduce the American public into a moral quagmire (both fiscally and socially).  But the good news is that .... we, the Patriotic Americans, have a great opportunity to step in today.  We have the moral resolve to choose, promote and elect into office true conservatives .... at every level of government.  Godspeed and have a blessed day and a Happy New Year!

Sincerely in Christ,

Robert Sohn

Psalm 122

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem.

    A Song of Ascents, of David. 1 I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.” 2 Our feet are standing Within your gates, O Jerusalem, 3 Jerusalem, that is built As a city that is compact together; 4 To which the tribes go up, even the tribes of the LORD—    An ordinance for Israel— To give thanks to the name of the LORD. 5 For there thrones were set for judgment, The thrones of the house of David. 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May they prosper who love you. 7 “May peace be within your walls, And prosperity within your palaces.” 8 For the sake of my brothers and my friends, I will now say, “May peace be within you.” 9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good.


Genesis 12:1-3

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Abram Journeys to Egypt

1 Now the LORD said to Abram,

“Go forth from your country,
And from your relatives
And from your father’s house,
To the land which I will show you;
2 And I will make you a great nation,
And I will bless you,
And make your name great;
And so you shall be a blessing;
3 And I will bless those who bless you,
And the one who curses you I will curse.
And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”
