The war between Edom and Paras drifts inexorably forward.
In Farsi, there is a word, “haq“, which means “divine and inalienable right”. The term is somewhat related to the Jewish notion of hoq in the sense of its immutable character.
Haq is a term Persians use when discussing the nuclear weapons issue. For them, having unrestrained freedom to develop and control nuclear weapons is their divine and inalienable right that cannot change or be diminished.
This conflict promises to change the world forever, setting the stage for the final redemption.
HaShem should give us strength and joy!
Because, while true that this too is for the good, to quote my esteemed neighbor from England, the situation is really just so bloody depressing!
