Before you start dancing in the streets about the nuclear agreement with Iran, think about this:
Why does history repeat itself? People never learn...
Hedonist societies especially never learn. They try to appease tyrannical (Tehrannical) regimes and therefore gain a few more years of peace and quiet on the golf course. Alas, Hashem doesn't let it happen that way.
Appeasement only fuels the appetite of tyranny. Do you remember the Munich Agreement of 1938? Led by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, a name whom history has made synonymous to appeasement, The UK, France and Italy agreed to allow Hitler to annex Czechoslovakia in return for "peace". Hitler signed the peace agreement, and everyone was all smiles.
Chamberlain came back to the UK from Berlin as a hero, to the welcome of the fish-chips-and beer-drinking masses who were jubilant that the threat of war had passed. Chamberlain told the British public that he had achieved “peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time.”
Chamberlain's folly was immediately challenged by his greatest critic, Winston Churchill, who declared, “You were given the choice between war and dishonour. You chose dishonour and you will have war.” Indeed, Chamberlain’s policies were discredited the following year, when Hitler annexed the remainder of Czechoslovakia in March of 1939 and then precipitated World War II by invading Poland in September, 1939, which triggered World War II.
Now, 77 years later, during the notorious "Three Weeks" between the 17th of Tammuz and Tisha B'Av, the USA has reaffirmed its commitment to hedonism by appeasing Iran and signing a nuclear agreement that is not worth the skin of a garlic clove. Kerry and Obama are walking in Chamberlain's exact footsteps while Iran sees itself as the 21st Century Aryans, continuing in Hitler's path, constantly threatening to destroy Israel. The Iranians mean what they say. As was in Berlin, 1938, the peace won't last for more than a year; indeed, much less.
Why is Hashem doing all of this? He is showing us that we can trust no one but Him. If Bibi is afraid to ruffle Obama's feathers and build new apartments in Judea and Samaria, don't think that he'll have the nerve to go it alone militarily against Iran.
Teshuva and emuna are the only way to secure our future. Hashem's wake-up calls are getting louder all the time; let's put an end to our spiritual slumber.
