Obama Gives Iran Deadline for Nuclear Talks

Ad Feedback

President Barack Obama has given Iran until Sept. 15 to agree to talks with the West over its nuclear weapons program.
    
If Iran refuses, it could move the Middle East one step closer to another war.
    
Iran appears to have produced enough enriched uranium for at least two atomic bombs. According to the nuclear watchdog group, the International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA, the clock is clearly ticking.  The Obama administration's push for better relations with the Iranian regime has so far failed to make any progress.

"Clearly, every time the United States has made a gesture to Iran, it was not interpreted as a magnanimous act by Tehran, but rather, as weakness," said Dore Gold, author of The Rise of Nuclear Iran

While the West seems hesitant, even confused, about how to deal with Iran, the Islamic republic and its allies appear supremely confident about their mission.  However, there is a growing number of Muslims in the Middle East who do not agree with the radicals -- and they are speaking out.

Fehida Layadi, a Moroccan Parlaiment member, says democracy and religious tolerance could transform the Muslim world.

"Are you Jewish, are you Muslim or are you Jewish? I don't care about it," Layadi said. "I hope that one day, I will see an Iraqi, a Saudi or an Iranian look at it the same way."
 
Another group has joined these reformers in challenging radical Islam. Raised Muslim, they are turning to Christ in record numbers--and sharing the gospel at great personal risk.

"Islam is not the answer," said Coptic Orthodox Priest Father Zakaria Botros. "Jihad is not the way. Jesus is the way, Jesus is the truth and Jesus is the life!"

Author Joel Rosenberg's new dvd Inside the Revolution takes you into the very heart of the Middle East where he says radicals, reformers and revivalists are battling for the soul of the region.
