Iran Launches Long-Range Missiles Emblazoned With Slogan: ‘Israel Should Be Wiped Off The Face Of The Earth’

Please click on the link, read, and watch the video.  You don’t need to read Farsi or Arabic or Hebrew, since it’s translated, but I’m a fan of original language since things do get left out in translation.

Many of the larger Grad (Russian) and other Iranian built missiles that have been launched out of Gaza since 2008 have had “love letters” from Iran stamped all over them.  Literally, stamped, so you can read them on the bodies of the exploded missiles.

In fact, more than one container ship has been stopped in the Suez Canal, full of Iranian “home missile kits” which, when fully assembled, make nice big missiles with warheads full of ball bearings, to do the most damage to whoever gets in the way.  Fortunately, there aren’t many habitable areas in Israel, so most of the missiles land in inhabited areas, or on the poor Bedouins who are really the ones who got screwed when they were forced out of their nomadic life in North Africa.  Like so many others, they took refuge in Israel, but since Israel is the size of Delaware, there’s not much space for them to wander.  So they get hit with missiles meant for Jews.

The concept of getting rid of Jews is not new to the world.  What is disturbing to the Jewish soul is that the Muslim world seems not to care that if they blow up Israel, millions of their Muslim brethren will also perish.  Is that the way to solve the bickering over who “owns” the land between the Jordan and the Mediterranean?  Wipe it out?  Clean the slate?  Ridiculous, doesn’t it sound that way?  Could never happen?

Well, history shows otherwise.  Even modern history, going on right now.  The wars in the Middle East have been raging on for decades, and I am not talking about Israel/Palestine/Jordan/Lebanon/Egypt.  I am talking much, much bigger players and bigger numbers: Iran/Iraq/Afghanistan/Syria, of which Serbia/Kosovo is an extension.

The reality on the ground in terms of weapons supply chain is:

Russia>>Iran>>Syria>>Hezballah, Iran>>Hamas/Fatah.

Now there is the new factor of the “Islamic State,” which is turning the ideals of Shari’a law on its head by doing things that are theoretically permitted but never done, at least not since the 7th century, specifically, capturing, using, and selling sex slaves from “enemy/infidel tribes,” specifically the Yazidis.

I’ll explain the Yazidi situation in another post, since I don’t want to get too much farther off track here.

The point I want to make is that in getting rid of Israel, Iran will happily take out millions of Muslims, not only in the West Bank and Gaza, but also in Egypt, Lebanon, and, of course, whatever’s left of Syria.

We Hebrews have our own beliefs about this process of extermination of our own people, which has been going on for thousands of years.

But for the Jewish mind, there is no way to understand a people who are willing to sacrifice hundreds of thousands of their own brothers and sisters all over the world, just to get rid of everybody else. 

Coptophobia: Christian Heads Also Fly

http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/9024.htm

Along with Jews (“descendents of pigs and monkeys,” according to Islamic State propaganda), who are clearly the root cause of everything bad, and Hindus, Sikhs, Baha’i, Muslims who refuse to join their ranks, and anybody else who isn’t them–IS has been quietly conducting a campaign of genocide against the already tiny population of Coptic Christians, who once thrived in Egypt, albeit as dhimmis after the Muslim conquest.

As dhimmis, Christians are to be protected under Shari’a law, in return for a special tax on top of the customary taxes due from Muslims.  However, IS has declared that existing Shari’a is not “authentic,” and have taken it upon themselves to rewrite the law.  The well-vocalized aim of IS is to impose a new Caliphate, and this appears to include re-writing the Qran and Hadiths, to the exclusion of laws extant since the seventh century C.E. (Common Era).

If there is a reason that the venerable Ban Ki Moon chooses to ignore this unconscionable injustice, and allow this entire people and their rich culture to be  wiped out at the whim of a rogue faction, I cannot fathom it.

If a tiny fraction of the news and rhetoric currently devoted to the current crisis in the Land of Israel  were used to publicize the dire situation of the Coptics, it is my fervent hope that the Christian world, at the very least, would come to the aid of their brethren in Egypt.

No doubt the spectacular art and architectural masterpieces of the Coptics would be lost; but there are lives and culture and traditions that, if not saved, and quickly, will be lost forever.

Unlike the good fortune of the Baha’i, who managed to escape the harsh persecution of the Persian regime and found sanctuary in Israel (then called by the Roman name “Palestine”), the Coptics find themselves pinned down with nowhere to go.

Already the Christian population of Nazareth and Bethlehem have found themselves under the “leave or die” policy of the Palestinian Authority.  Many have been outright murdered.  The rest have fled to the PA-unoccupied portions of The Land, where they live in safety.  But the Copts, that is, the few that remain, are unable to leave Northern Africa.

It would take an operation such as the Israeli airlifts of Ethiopian Jews to rescue the Copts.  Unfortunately, that would involve bloody battles in which additional Coptic, and many Israeli, lives would be lost.  And in all candor, I believe that the teeth of the once fearsome and heroic Israeli commandos have been blunted out of fear of “world opinion.”  Today, I doubt whether the spectacular 1976 rescue of over 100 Jewish hostages at Entebbe, Uganda, would have even been considered as an option.

Did you know that according to the website adherents.com, which in my opinion is the least biased of the world religion tabulation sites, there were, as of 2005, 2.1 billion Christians (as a whole), 1.5 Muslims (although, since it is the fastest growing religion world wide, the numbers are many more today, while Christianity is slowly decreasing), and a mere 14 million Jews–even fewer than “Spiritists” (sorry, I’m not familiar with that term) and Sikhs?

So why does it fall to Jews to rescue who needs rescuing and take the blame for who needs blaming?

I call upon Christians, both religious and by tradition, to hear the cries of your brethren who are being slaughtered by “a new Pharaoh…[who] has arisen in Egypt” (paraphrase, Exodus 1:8).

May they be delivered in time, and may their oppressors vanish.

The Knife Intifada Video

Yup, you’re right.  I don’t drag politics into my blog, because my blog is about living with mental illness, and I hold to that.

However, there is something going on in the world that can no longer be ignored, pushed off as a one-off, or justified by other actions.

Rather than waste more of your time, I ask you to watch what’s going on here, and regardless of your political position, ask yourself, “what does this mean for ME, as a human being, and for the world?  Do I believe in genocide for any reason?  Who is the people who are marked for genocide here?  Are they a numerous people?  Is genocide condoned by the UN?”
