Israeli Predicament with the World

 

Once again the world is teetering on the brink of another disastrous attempt to press a Middle East grand plan for peace. Do not misinterpret this as the idea that Israel is against making peace as there is nothing the Israelis desire more than a real and just peace. On the other hand what they fear is the concept being once again driven that if only Israel were to surrender further and just find that correct balance of sacrificed level of secure area while giving away dangerous high grounds and leaving from the areas where her intelligence gathering has proven sufficient to prevent another disastrous terror war as well as preventing the replacement of the Arab Palestinian Authority (PA) governance by Hamas or the potentially worse Islamic State replacing Abbas in another coup just as they did Gaza placing all Israel under mortal threat, then there would be peace and no further threat to Europe. Under the world’s radar Israel has prevented any number of schemes to forcibly replace the somewhat milder terrorist PA, and do not ever lose sight of this fact that the PA is a terror entity, with the religiously fanatical Hamas or Islamic State over the last decade since giving that same PA control over Gaza which they lost in a quick but deadly putsch by Hamas allied with Islamic Jihad and the Muslim Brotherhood which brought onto Israel a number of ever increasingly dangerous terror rocket wars. These all proceeded in the same methodology of a slow ramping over weeks leading to months of rockets being fired into southern Israel and eventually in this last war reaching Jerusalem and Tel Aviv all the way up the coast to Haifa. This slowly raising the terror rocket temperature to slowly boil Israeli in the pan of explosive projectiles while not disturbing the media always received little if any coverage only when there was loss of life or such loss being achieved through apparent miracles succeeded in its aim of stealth. This always led to the first mentioning of any violence always came when Israel was finally forced to use the IDF at a high level of force to end the hundreds of rockets raining down on Israeli towns, farms, kibbutzim and into its industrial heart.

 

The same being able to be directed from the overlooking Judean Hills would be more devastating to Israel than any story realized thus far. Hundreds to over a thousand and approaching two thousand rockets and now missiles being launched and directed from the heights overlooking central Israel where almost three out of four Israelis reside and over eighty percent of her industrial and power generating power is centralized and the shuttering of Ben Gurion International Airport would be ruinous for Israel and an assault from which she would take decades upon decades to recover from assuming recovery were even an option. Such an assault would cause a mass and panicked race for the borders of potentially the majority of the Israeli population which could send ripples through the IDF as soldiers moved with their families to anywhere outside the range of the rocket and missile threat. The Arab forces would then have an IDF in disarray and weakened state with the backing of her reserves likely decimated by the exodus to safety. This would be the exact scenario should the French initiative prove to be the grand success that they believe they are targeting and what President Obama might just utilize as a last grand push for peace and a second Nobel Peace Prize as well as cementing his legacy as the President that brought ruination in the form of a grand peace to the Jewish State. Trust that should the Jewish State of Israel be erased from the map, the actual desired end of the Palestinian and Arab peace plans, the Nobel Committee would be beside themselves is glorious celebration that that perceived thorn in the side of a true and lasting peace and end to all Arab terror had finally arrived that they would be handing out Nobel Peace Prizes like candy on Halloween.

 

The reality would turn out to be something quite different. With Israel out of the way the first casualty would be Cyprus followed by Crete and on to the Grecian Islands leaving an Islamic beachhead in the heart of Europe which was not dependent on Turkey or Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan whose desire to lead the next Caliphate relied on Turkey being the Islamic beachhead. Such a situation would also illicit an advance through Sicily and up the Italian Peninsula where the two thrusts would meet once again at Vienna except this time the city would fall. This would in turn permit a push northward across the Balkans and into Austria, Poland and Germany then turning westward through France and into Spain and northward into Britain. This would inevitably lead to the invasion of Scandinavia and finally the push from the west and south into the heart of Russia. This scenario is how the Islamic Caliphate which would have been formed would anticipate such a conquest aided by the millions of advanced troops using the refugees as their regular soldiers and shock troops starting internal strife and rioting escalating as the Islamic forces approached spreading each national military and law enforcement thinly defending the country from forces external and internal simultaneously. The only variable is how far into such a scenario would the remainder of Europe awaken? Assuming that such a scenario were planned and executed over a number of decades the Europeans would be slowly devoured and likely never awaken from their war weary slumbers.

 

Fortunately the forces of the coming Islamic expansion will be anything but inexorably slow and planned for minimal upheaval attempting to weaken each region internally before striking as the saviors from rioting and terror. Instead there will be an explosion of terror and rioting across much of Europe upon the conquest of the Grecian Isles and the spread into the Balkan States. Romania will be one nation which will likely be bypassed as the perception of a bitter and long struggle will linger from wars past and initially Romania might be bypassed and the assaults strike headlong into Poland and Germany while North African arm assaults Sicily and the Italian peninsula. As this will be one persistent assault and conquest, the sleeping Europe will likely awaken and unite this time before the situation has deteriorated beyond repair. Of course this is predicated on nationalist governments being elected as the more leftist socialist humanitarian governance proves inadequate to the task at hand. Such a uniting of an awakened and truly terrified and terrorized Europe with the enlisted assistance of the United States could terminate any advance before the complete fall of Poland and Germany could be completed and the Italian assault closing but not yet in possession of Rome. The Vatican calling for assistance for the sake of the Church and all Christianity could, especially with a Pope from South America, solidify a united Christian front to counter Islam and all future peace would be dependent on one side or the other being completely victorious and vanquishing the other pressing the other religion literally into the recesses of secrecy and potentially all but eradicated from the Earth.

 

Of course this entire scenario can never be carried out as long as the cork is in the bottle and that cork is Israel. The mere existence of Israel stabilizes the immediate area allowing for a moderate and economically focused military nexus in addition to security oriented Egypt and a stable situation in Jordan and Saudi Arabia. A strong Israel also acts as a restraint on Iran and its slowly deteriorating offensive to build a crescent of power across to the Mediterranean Sea through southern Iraq, Syria and Lebanon also gaining a foothold on the Israeli border and potentially striking at Jordan and the PA in order to weaken Israel. Such a scenario coming into fruition would shock and threaten Erdogan and Turkey which, if attacked, could request assistance through NATO treaty obligations bringing the powers of Europe and the United States et al into the fray and likely ending the advance and with it any Iranian hopes for further conquest. Trust that the biggest threat does not come from the Islamic State, though they are a direct threat to peace in the area any time soon, but from a nuclear armed Iran threatening nuclear ruin on any opposition and once nuclear weapons in any form from an EMP device to a hydrogen city killing device, use of such weapons would bring far more than a slap on the wrist and assisting compliant actions from the United States and even Europe. The civilizational conflict of the ages is once again simmering and potentially about to boil over. The quencher who can turn off the burner before anything gets a foothold is a strong Israel. Simply explained, with Israel positioned to be a ruinous force against any supply lines from the Middle East to any European front and the Israeli long arm which can disrupt even shipments intended for Hamas while they are still traversing the Sudan is just further proof that Israel, especially if sided through secretive agreements by Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, has an extended reach and intelligence network such that any overt actions can be anticipated and mitigated.

The name of the game is to prevent the fall of Europe directly to Islamic forces. That does not mean that Europe is safe as even Israel cannot prevent a European politically correct surrender to the Islamic forces within. The Stealth Jihad has been extremely effective despite not even having any coordinating framework yet established. This is most definitely changing and the race is on between the Muslim Brotherhood, the Wahabbists, Iranian Shiites and the Islamic State as to who will be the puppet master coordinating the terror actions throughout Europe and beyond into the Americas. Iran would be the most dangerous as they would necessarily require changing the dynamics of the entire equation proving to the vast number of Sunni Muslims that their Shiite form of Islam was the preeminent Islamic force and being led by the Mahdi or those sent to prepare for the Mahdi’s arrival which would need to also be sold as imminent. Of course this would require an entire propaganda coup making such an eventuality appear to be within the Iranian grasp but solely by its Shiite narrative within Islam thus giving the Shia Islam the claim of the right path following the strong horse. Until now the strong horse had always been Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Needless to point out, a nuclear armed Iran changes such a scenario once and for all or at the least until the leaders of Sunni Islam develop or procure their own nuclear weapons. Such weapons might very well be utilized by Bashir al-Assad as a final strike weapon of last resort. This is likely to be prevented by the fears of European national reaction which would agitate the European nations and potentially awaken them to the shocking and imminent threat they jointly face.

 

The Europeans and the Americans must open their eyes and realize that Islam is not a religion so much as it is a supremacist document replete with instruction to conquer the entirety of mankind, subjugate them to Islam and utilize Sharia to terrorize the masses of people into submission. There is a reason the Quran requires one to surrender to Islam. That is due to its all-encompassing directives about how to live every minute of one’s life. It invokes a class system which makes social advancement directly related to ones dedication to the precepts of Islam. Islamic teachers will tell people that it has always been the future of mankind and that none may escape the icy hand of Islam as it imposes its dominion over mankind. The ideals of Islam are totalitarian and are blatantly anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, anti-Buddhist, anti-Shinto and against every other religion and other governing structure which does not enforce Islam on all their subjects, their people. It can cause scientific stagnation and potentially lead to regressive scientific knowledge as in its most virulent form, the ones in use today in Saudi Arabia, the Islamic State, Iran, Hamas, Erdogan and all too many others. The individuals attempting to mitigate some of the sharp shards enforced under Islam leads to physical sexual mutilation of women, suppression of all thoughts outside of the Quran and Muhammad’s life, bigamy, honor killing of female (and rare cases of male) members of a family who is believed to have committed a sexual act forbidden in Islam thus detracting from the family name thus requiring their murder, misogyny, slavery (still practiced in some Islamic communities), no religious freedoms, no freedom of speech, no free press or media, no individual liberty, no freedom of thought, the murder of all found to be living a gay or homosexual lifestyle, no deviation from the accepted lifestyle limitations as interpreted by the Imams (which can include bans on such activities as dancing, objectionable lyrics, music, movies, books other than the Quran, singing outside of prayer, clothing restrictions, hair style, beard requirements and other impingements on personal choice) and Islamic supremacy. Islam as it is being applied today is straightforwardly a geopolitical framework for world conquest and domination with no allowance for accepting any other religious or political system to exist throughout the entirety of the world. Islam is banned as a threat to peace, security and general happiness in several nations. It is banned as a practice, a religion, a governing format and is to be fought by these societies wherever it may attempt to root itself within their borders and the closing of exchange be it trade, commercial, movement of people and especially religious leaders as they view Islam as a threat to their way of life and the things they hold dear within their society. These nations also banned Communism for many of the same liberty crushing reasons. Islam demands complete world conquest and subjugation as part of its observance allowing for no other religion or ruling entity other than the Caliphate which is headed by the Mahdi, the supreme Islamic entity.

 

The Islamic final conquest of the world is currently preoccupied with Israel. Their main problem with Israel is multifaceted and starts with the fact that Israel is the land of the Jewish People, strike one. In Islam Judaism is the highest form of evil and must be stamped out. Their final world conquest begins with Israel as it sits on former Islamic lands, strike two. Finally, Israel has a strategic placement which sits at the crux, the joining lands of three continents, Asia, Europe and Africa. Such a strongpoint must be taken before any real conquest of these three continents can be pursued. The Islamic phrase which captures their initial required conquest of Israel does not mention Israel and solely states in Sahih Muslim Book 041, Hadith Number 6985, “Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.” Note it says nothing about Israel, Judea, Jerusalem, al Quds, West Bank, Gaza or any other location but insists on the death for all Jews wherever they may be found and that the Earth herself will reveal the Jews who attempt to hide. One can assume that Islam would also look favorably on the destruction of any groves of Gharqad trees.

Lastly and in closing, allow us to quote Winston Churchill cited a passage said to have been taken from a speech by Churchill, as reproduced in his 1899 book The River War: An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan, spoke of Islam stating,

 

I am sending the attached short speech from Winston Churchill, delivered by him in 1899 when he was a young soldier and journalist. It probably sets out the current views of many but expressed in the wonderful Churchillian turn of phrase and use of the English language, of which he was a past master. Sir Winston Churchill was, without doubt, one of the greatest men of the late 19th and 20th centuries.

He was a brave young soldier, a brilliant journalist, an extraordinary politician and statesman, a Great War leader and Prime Minister, to whom the Western world must be forever in his debt. He was a prophet in his own time; He died on 24 January 1965, at the grand old age of 90 and, after a lifetime of service to his country, was accorded a State funeral.

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

“A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

“Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

Message to Bernie Sanders and the Other Candidates on Israel

No people are more desirous for peace than the Israelis. The Israelis have sacrificed their security and compromised and given concessions after concessions for peace but Mahmoud Abbas, almost all if not all of Fatah officers, all of Islamic Jihad and Hamas, the Islamic State from the very top to the last and lowest fighter, the Iranian leadership (especially the fanatical IRGC), most of the highest ranking Imams, and much of the Arab and Islamic populations of the world desire the peace of the grave for Israel and the Jews, period. That said; Israel proved beyond any doubt when making peace with Egypt and returning the Sinai which is tens of times the size of Israel itself and with making peace with Jordan that Israel will accept even the coldest of peace to a state of conflict on any level. Winning every war does not mean liking war, it means survival for Israel. A single loss would be the end of Israel and another Holocaust resulting in six million dead Jews and maybe more. It would also mean tens of thousands of other non-Muslims murdered as the population of Israel would face an ethnic cleansing on a whole new level. That is why Israel must never lose a war at any point in time, period.

That is the formula Israel lives with and the United States has not faced ever in its history. The worst price America faced was should they have lost the war of 1812, many top elite of the United States would have been tried for treason against the crown. Otherwise the American people would have lived on under new management which would have been much like the old management except the British would have imposed additional and punitive taxes possibly approaching ten percent. Israel, on the other hand, has faced a genocidal slaughter in every war that has been waged against her and each war was the idea of Israel’s enemies. They had committed a casus belli or an actual crossing of her borders by multiple armies starting each conflict. Under International Law if a nation closes a waterway without having the approval of world bodies, that is considered an act of war. Before anybody goes off on the Gaza blockade by Israel, that has been ruled upon by the United Nations Security Council and the International Criminal court and found to have good cause as it prevents terrorist organizations, universally recognized as such in Hamas and Islamic Jihad, from receiving arms to use against civilian populations. As anybody can detect, this has not been sufficient to prevent these entities from arming themselves with some impressive rockets which they continue to upgrade with the assistance of Iran and others.

Back to the candidates; Bernie Sanders’ claim that Israel killed 10,000 Gazan civilians is an obvious overstatement as there were not even three thousand dead in total. His reclassifying that he may have misspoke and that Israel wantonly struck Gaza destroying entire apartment blocks and struck hospitals is again a gross misstatement. The apartment blocks struck had rocket launchers place on their roofs and at their bases. Israel did not strike any hospitals but a pair of misfired rockets by Hamas did indeed strike a hospital and a refugee camp accounting for many hundreds of casualties which are consistently laid at Israel’s feet as Hamas and Islamic Jihad immediately after their misfire released the charge that Israel had struck both the hospital and the refugee camp despite their not posing any threat to Israel. Subsequently the actual trajectories of the four misfired missiles were released as Israeli Iron Dome radar had tracked all four missiles and their trajectories are displayed in the images below. These claims by Bernie Sanders are proof that Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Arab Palestinians claims, even the definitively proven false claims, made in the immediacy after such accidental strikes leave the lasting impression. Despite the Hamas rockets being misfired, they were still able to immediately place the blame on Israel and that was the image which everybody remembers because in the news with the pictures of a burning hospital or dead bodies in a strike in a refugee camp which were disturbing and memorable pictures, were presented with claims that Israel perpetrated the deed. When later after a full investigation had been thoroughly examined the causes and a correction is added to the end of the next day’s nightly news almost as an aside, that does little to nothing to change the initial shocking pictures and the blame Israel first actions. Bernie Sanders suffers from the affliction of first impression-itis which is a common ailment in many of the accusations repeated ad nauseum against Israel, and the fact these claims are repeated and seldom clarified eventually makes them more believable than the truth. It is proof of the old expression attributed often to Winston Churchill; “A lie gets halfway around the earth before the truth can get it pants on” is as valid as it ever was.

We fully expect Arab leaders and their apologists to blame Israel for every ill in the world such as the recent claims by a former Arab nation’s finance minister that Israel was the cause of the 2007-8 financial crisis and that the Jews profit from such financial trickery by buying derivatives and other means of stealing the wealth of the Arab world. He proffered as proof writing and quotes from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the old Czarist forgery used by them to blame the Jews for their mismanaging of Russia’s economy and for the lack of food and other staples being suffered under their rule. What we do not expect is for American politicians to fall trap to such lies as all too many European and Third World leaders and politicians have through the years. America has not suffered from overt and flagrant anti-Semitism to the extent that the rest of the world has over the years. We would like to believe that there is hope for the world to get past their historic anti-Semitism which has been prevalent since the time when the Pyramids were still the newest attraction and well before the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Perhaps anti-Semitism is so engrained into the world that such is an expectation which is well beyond the capability of the human race. The one thing we can assure the world that should there ever come a day when anti-Semitism has been eradicated, then there will come a day when it can truly be said that mankind has evolved to a state worthy of the coming of the Messiah, and having that be the Earth and state of mankind that brings such it is far preferable to the other extreme which is the other condition for the coming of the Messiah, when all of mankind is so corrupt that nothing short of the Messiah will be capable of saving us from ourselves. For now let us hope the American voters will save us from Bernie Sanders. Bernie can be said to be basically an honest man which is why we feel he was quoting bad input which his handlers should have prepared him not to have said such ludicrous a statement. Then again, we expected that as he places little if any value on his Jewish roots, we also figured he would distance himself from Israel even further than President Obama just to prove he had no dual loyalties, despite his voting record proving already that he was no real friend of Israel. His desire to prove he is not a Zionist just because he was born a Jew will drive him to do all in his power to walk away from Israel, so if anyone cares about Israel, Bernie is not your candidate, period.

Thanks to the economic and other sanctions which have hobbled the Iranian economy to the point, about eighteen months ago, it resembled a dying man crawling on his belly in tattered pants and the shreds of his shirt, shoes scuffed to the point that their original color was indistinguishable and two vultures already discussing which would get which of the choicest remains, had Iran at the brink of civil revolt. That was when President Obama held back door negotiations where he released some of the most effective of the sanctions which brought the distant oasis to the parched lips of the Iranian economy saving them to make the better deal. It is that deal President Obama, the hero of the Iranians government, is claiming is the best deal and the only option outside of war. But is this claim of peace in our time really just peace for a while in our time? The comparisons between the Munich Accords of 1938 and now President Obama is desperately seeking the same adulation for this close relative to another situation of a nation spreading its tentacles and preparing for war and barely even concealing their arming and their aspirations which have been laid out in writing. The desires for world conquest and the elimination of the Jewish People was laid out step for step by Adolph Hitler in Mein Kampf and the Iranian Shiites (and also the Sunnis just to be fair and even; after all we would not want to take sides now, would we?) in the Quran and the Hadiths where the world is divided between ‘Dar al-Islam’ (Arabic: دار الإسلام‎) which translates to House of Islam and ‘Dar al-Harb’ (Arabic: دار الحرب) which translates to House of War. The followers of Islam are instructed to continue their struggle to spread their religion until it becomes the only religion practiced anywhere in the world. There are many Muslims residing in Western nations who refute any charges that Islam is to be spread ‘by the sword’ should more passive means prove unproductive and there remain some who adamantly refuse to accept Islam which is simply intolerable.

 

Then there is the Islamic State which has denuded entire cities and swaths of lands in which they have taken control of those who practiced any religion other than not only Islam but their very narrowly defined version of Sunni Islam. The marauders of the Islamic State may have been the Junior Varsity in the eyes of United States President Obama but are anything but the Junior Varsity when it comes to torture and coming up with ever more imaginative ways to ever more slowly murder their victims making sure that they suffered the most mental anguish, even if not the maximum pain, as they progressed from beheadings to burning alive to slowly being lowered in a steel cage into water to drown victims and other horrors and then posted their murderous ways using them as some form of sick recruiting tool. What is even more disturbing are the numbers of those who have rushed from across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the rest of the Western World to join the Islamic State. The only productive news concerning Iran is they oppose the Islamic State and desire to eliminate this horror from the world. But then one must ask themselves, is replacing the Islamic State horrors with Iranian, Syrian and Hezballah horrors really a step in the right direction or simply replacing one murderous and fearsome army turned government with another murderous government using its army.

 

These are the leaders of a nation of approximately seventy-eight-million-five-hundred-thousand largely Shia Muslims of which the vast majority are what are referred to as “Twelvers” with the remainder of the population being also largely Muslims following Sunni Islam. The remaining under one-percent of Iranians follows the following religions in order from largest to least; Bahá’í, Gnostic, Christian, Yarsanism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, and least but with a very nice Synagogue, the Yusef Abad synagogue in Tehran pictured below, Judaism. Interestingly, there are more Jews of Iranian heritage residing in the United States than remain in Iran which according to the 2011 Iranian census stated this threatened populations of Jews at eight-thousand-seven-hundred-fifty-six souls the majority spread between merely ten families, six of them related by marriage. There are those who inflate the numbers of Jews remaining in Iran to over one-hundred-thousand largely in an attempt to portray Iran as an accepting nation granting equal rights to non-Muslims despite the fact that the minorities walk quietly and taking care to be aware of their surroundings at all times and making sure to keep their heads bowed and their gaze fixates on the ground before them and to never under any circumstance stare any Shiite Muslim in the eyes and to always speak in hushed tones speaking in slow and respectful manners and subservient language never to sound challenging or to ever, ever appear as an equal lest one be reported to the police for such an affront and pay the price for challenging their superiors. There is a very good and solid description of life in Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution for Jews and other minorities given by Karmel Melamed, an award-winning, internationally published journalist and attorney based in Southern California who writes the Iranian American Jews blog. This article titled ”The Iranian-Jewish Tragedy in Iran” which gives the chilling view which the Western World needs to understand before they permit the fascist, supremacist dictatorial leadership to once again, in the brief history from 1900 to the present, to allow a cancer which believes they have a right to destroy the world in order to save the world. The history of Iran in that same time period just might give people some pause to realize the direction Iran has taken since 1900 and the path is chilling.

Iran did not exist in the year 1900 as all the way back then it had a name that most will recognize and for the Jews had a varied history where it went from savior to creeping to the edge of committing genocide against the Jewish People except for the bravery of one Jewess, Queen Esther. All the way back as recently as March 20, 1935 the nation was known as Persia. This name of Persia could be traced back to Cyrus the Great, the leader of Persia who conquered Babylonia and granted the Jews the right to return to their homelands and rebuild their holy Temple which many Jews chose to do while some of their brethren remained in Persia. Years later when Persia was ruled by King Ahasuerus (Xerxes I) the Grand Vizier, Haman the Agagite persuaded King Ahasuerus that the Jews were plotting against his rule and needed to be dealt with. This seems to be a repeating theme and almost always leads to someone coming up with the idea that murdering the Jews will make their nation greater, and the order was issued. The problem was that after the King created a vacancy after executing his wife for refusing his orders and generally insulting his authority for which he held a beauty contest, hopefully a contest which took into consideration more than beauty as that had worked so well with Vashti. Well, he chose Esther who the night before the order was to be carried out bravely entered the King’s court without having been invited, punishable by death, begged the King’s attention and broke the news that if his Grand Vizier Haman’s order was to be carried out they could start with her as she was also a Jew. Haman and his sons were executed on the very gallows they would have murdered the Jews of Persia. Haman, Hamas, I wonder, could there be a connection?

 

On March 21, 1935 Reza Shah Pahlavi officially renamed Persia changing the name to Iran. There are two very different theories for the change. One refers to numerous ancient references varying from the Sassanid, the Zoroastrianism, the Romans and other historical references mostly to deal with language. A more modern take takes the date and the rise of the Nazis to power in Germany and the theory of a master race, the Aryans, or the Persian word for the racial designation, Iran. The actual reason is likely was only honestly known to Reza Shah Pahlavi and he will not be giving us any hints. Another item while we are comparing modern day Iran and the Aryans from World War II as a potential enemy; the only war which Iran had fought directly was, to their credit, something which will seldom be found in these editorials in any source, was as a result of Iraqi initiated assaults as Saddam Hussein attempted to grab the Iranian oil fields. That war lasted near to a decade where some of the most horrific and destructive tactics were utilized by both sides. Despite the Iraqi military’s reputation as one of the largest and best trained and equipped in the Middle East outside Israel, Iran held them at bay and often made gains but eventually the war resembled a World War I trench warfare than world war highly mobile and technical war. The most remarked attack in this horrific war came when the Iranians needed to clear minefields and needed to do so with some degree of speed so a fairly brutish and head-on system was necessitated. The Iranians initially attempted to stampede mules and donkeys across the minefields but once the first animal struck a mine the others would scatter and run back the direction they had come from. This led to one of the most disturbing tactics where children were volunteered and upon their death their parents were financially compensated for their patriotic donation to the war efforts. The children were given plastic keys which they were told would unlock the door to heaven for them. In response to the condition of the returned remains led to the wrapping of the children in wet blankets so as to retain their parts when they hit a mine. Such fanaticism and willingness to sacrifice for the religious leadership was horrific and also showed a commitment almost beyond rational belief and which shows the length the Iranians might resort to against an enemy.

 

The question remains as to whether President Obama is saving the world from a war with Iran with his deal or allowing Iran to build up their military and potentially arm themselves with an arsenal of nuclear weapons, potentially thermonuclear warheads and the ICBMs with which to deliver them anywhere on the globe. They may even develop ICBM missiles capable of irregular flight characteristics making anti-missile systems near useless in preventing their striking their targets. Additionally, the Iranians could readily develop cruise missiles and master the ability to launch them from freighter container ships as they have done with some of their fifteen-hundred to two-thousand mile largely unguided rockets, or possibly a poorly guided missile. Of course, if the rocket has a nuclear warhead, exactly how accurate does one need to be? I mean, as long as you strike within a few miles from the intended region and, just as with hand grenades and horseshoes, close counts. What is most worrying is how the situation came to this juncture with the sanctions being weakened by President Obama allowing Iran to continue to limp along while the President and the State Department Team, which included a number of the same people who were responsible for the agreement with North Korea which led directly to their becoming nuclear armed nation, and Secretary of State Kerry appeared to trip over each other seeing who could surrender point after point and succumb to Iranian demands the fastest. The sign that Iran is about to use a fair amount of funds which will represent but a drop in the bucket of the one-hundred-fifty-billion-dollars being unfrozen and gifted to the Mullahs and the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei as they have already made arrangement to purchase Russian S-300 anti-aircraft-and-missile systems, one-hundred-fifty Chinese Chengdu J-10 sophisticated jet fighters with Israeli avionics and finally, two-hundred-fifty highly-advanced Russian Sukhoi-Su-30MK1 heavy-fighter-bombers as well as one-hundred IL78 MKI tanker aircraft; or simply put, Iran is purchasing an entire air force and air defense systems taking them from almost no air power worth mentioning to air superiority by comparison and potentially air superiority over the Kurds, Islamic State, and almost every nation in Northern Africa and many European nations as well. As the nations which Iran is most likely to face if they decide to expand their borders and acquire the airfields and staging areas of southern Iraq, as it appears that President Obama is fully supporting the IRGC forces and eventually other Iranian military forces to operate from within Iraq and Syria against the Islamic State with the United States providing air strikes and air support operations one has to wonder how President Obama might react should Iran decide to turn their forces southward and strike across the Kuwaiti and Saudi Arabian oil fields in response to what they could claim was mistreatment of Shiite Muslims by the two nations after incidents were instigated.

 

The other front we can expect to come from Iran is for their expanding the influence of Shia Islam across formerly Sunni strongholds spreading their control over Madrassas potentially replacing Wahhabi Madrassas after they have swarmed across the oil fields, complete their control through the Houthis of Yemen and then using a pincher attack from the north and the south in order to capture Mecca and Medina and thus controlling the heart of Islam. This would also complete Iranian control of the Red Sea and the Bab El-Mandab Strait. From that jumping off point it would not be difficult for Iran to then establish a beachhead from which to operate starting in Somalia and spreading from there through Eretria and Djibouti in order to spread through the Sudan and from Iraq and Saudi Arabia into the Sinai thus being on Egypt’s southern and eastern borders. Should Iran also desire to place a substantial force injected into Syria to assist Bashir al-Assad retaking the lands he has lost and using Hezballah to cement their control over Lebanon then Iran could have a northern and southern fronts on Israel and even more troubling should they also gain access to Gaza supplanting Hamas and Islamic Jihad in controlling the area. We can also expect that Iran will fortify their ground forces with purchases of armor most likely light armor to facilitate fast swarm style attacks overwhelming any defense an opponent would be likely to have at any front relying on lighter resistance and by overwhelming the initial positions and driving deeper into any nation they intended to strike thus appearing unstoppable and gaining a perceived position of strength which would also give the Islamic State considerable challenge especially when one considers that Iran will have a very well-armed air force, something completely missing in the Islamic State’s arsenal of abilities. The likelihood that President Obama would take any position opposing any Iranian moves in the entirety of the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) as such would be viewed as Iran simply doing exactly what President Obama desired, Iran stabilizing the entirety of the Islamic world, and what better way of being the hegemonic power than to also control all of the valuable lands and suppressing every potential adversary.

 

It would not be a complete surprise if should Iran manage to take control in Egypt that the Muslim Brotherhood might ‘see the writing on the wall,’ so to speak, and decide they had been in error about the lineage and correct successors of Muhammad and turn to back a Shia Islam. The truth is that there will either be a war with Iran or Iran will bring the war to each and every corner of the world one site at a time. The only question is at what point will their expansions be one bite too many and at what disadvantage will the world be in when facing the Iranian threat. History will point to the past decade and a half as the period when Iran could have been collared with minor losses and as being an opportunity squandered placing the world at risk. Once again, it appears the greatest threat building in the world is being left to Israel to stop. Let’s hope that Israel gets the necessary support of those others facing the same dangers or be willing to take on the task themselves. This is one time we can know that the United States has nobody’s back or if they do, then it is the worst of all possible scenarios placing Washington solidly behind Iran as President Obama had tilted his entire time in office, even with his efforts to place the Muslim Brotherhood ruling Egypt or turning a blind eye to Erdogan suppressing Turkey turning it into a Sharia state and potentially joining with Iran. At the very least, a combining of the regions and its people into an alliance of Israel, the Kurds, the Druze and the various Christian strongholds be brought together and aided to eliminate the Islamic State, thus putting Iran on notice that they should carefully consider their next moves as they will make all the difference in the world. As a result of removing the Islamic State, regions of Syria and northern Iraq will now be known as a state for the Kurds in the area originally promised the Kurds for Kurdistan at the end of World War I but not fulfilled due to the Mosul oil fields and politics as usual. The Druze will likely be granted some degree of autonomy within those areas in Syria where they reside and the refugees should attempt to put their lives and country back together and learn to live with a multi-ethnic nation. Further, as Hezballah has shown so much concern for Syria perhaps they can live there and maybe the Bekaa Valley but the rest of Lebanon is to be a Christian refuge free and resolute to act with favor on the Christians of the entire area and make a nation from the ruins left by Hezballah. Such a solution would be so nice and clean which is why it is unlikely to come into fruition. As Winston Churchill told the British Parliament “You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you will have war.” and additionally from his writings from “The Gathering Storm,” “If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds are against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.” May some heed the warnings that many in the leadership positions in Israel be joined by those in Europe, in France, in Germany, in Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Poland, Romania and even Greece raise their voices and call for those who cherish the G0d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob not succumb to the forces of those of Abraham, Ishmael and Mohammad, Amen.
