Iranian President Ahmadinejad

This passage jumped out at me today. My husband & I follow middle east stuff closely because we are passionate about end times prophecies. There always has & always will be wars in the middle east and surrounding the Jews until the Lord comes again. But it doesn't stop many of us from wondering why? If the Jews are God's chosen people, why do they suffer so much? Why do the nations rage against them? Why are things done in the name of religion, terrible things?
I've said before that for most of us in North America, it can be rather easy to detach our emotions for the wars in the middle east & in parts of Africa because we feel safe here. But with all the threats that Ahmadinejad has made against the United States, our safety is starting to feel encroached on, even here in Canada.
I wonder what the next 5 or 10 years will hold in the way of war & peace. I wonder if there will even be another 5 or 10 years to go. The saying goes that "it has to get worse before it gets better". Yes, it will get worse won't it. Being on the brink of nuclear war, it can definitely get worse, but the 'better' is the part I'm holding out for. An ETERNITY of better!
Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, And rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him ~Psalm 2:10-12
