Is This Really Happening?
Obama accedes to Israel's possible annihilation.
I really cannot believe what I am seeing in the news about the U.S. and Iran. In 2013, less than 70 years after the end of the Hitler regime in Europe that killed half of all of the Jews in the world, roughly half of the Jews in the world are threatened with annihilation again—and the U.S. administration is not only going along with it, but cheering on the possibility.
Hitler did not have nuclear weapons, thank God, and there was no tiny little country like Israel where 7 million of the race he hated with such a crazed vengeance lived. So he had to send police and militia and the Gestapo and the SS and local anti-Semites to round up the Jews, move them to nearby fields for shooting or beating, or in trains to death factories like Auschwitz where thousands of Jews a day were gassed in the most horrible circumstances imaginable.
The Iranians in the recent past have pledged to destroy the Jewish people in the Middle East. Some of their leaders have boasted that if Iran gets nuclear weapons, Iran will have “a holocaust in an afternoon” by rocketing a few nuclear weapons into Israel. Naturally, the Israelis are desperately worried.
The Jews of this world take threats of annihilation seriously. The U.S. has been extremely helpful by applying sanctions to Iran to persuade them to stop and destroy their nuclear arms program....
Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terror. Many of its top brass have expressed a wish to see an earth rid of Jews altogether. For Mr. Obama to trust these people... is deeply naive or worse. If that trust turns out to be mistaken, it’s a bad day for Mr. Obama.
It’s death for Israel. It’s another Holocaust and the world—except for France—is standing by saying, “Go for it, Iran. We trust you.” There is something Biblically horrifying about the whole situation....
