Biblical Warning to the US Congress

by Aaron Klein

Likening Iran to the biblical Haman, the main antagonist in the book of Esther who plotted to destroy the Jews of Persia, a coalition of more than 350 prominent rabbis in Israel and abroad has sent a letter to Congress urging lawmakers to oppose the “dangerous” nuclear agreement.

“Your vote on the agreement - by every legislator - will either facilitate a nuclear war or spare humanity of a nuclear war,” reads the letter.

The rabbinic leaders explain they prefer to steer away from politics; however, “we feel that the current agreement with Iran jeopardizes not only American interests but threatens the very existence of the State of Israel.”

“Over two thousand years ago, in ancient Persia - present day Iran - Jews faced a similar situation. An “ayatollah” by the name of Haman set a scheme in motion that would have annihilated the entire Jewish nation in a single day. Mordechai, the Jewish leader, turned to his niece Queen Esther, the wife of the Persian king and the highest ranking Jewish official at that time, and appealed to her to intervene on behalf of the Jewish people and ask the king to nullify the decree,” they write.

Esther hesitated, however, and claimed that her actions would not only fail to help, but would make matters worse. Mordechai retorted that this was her defining moment: “If you persist in keeping silent at a time like this, relief and deliverance will come to the Jews from somewhere else, but you will have forfeited this privilege. Who knows whether it was just for such a time as this that you attained your royal position,” the letter says.

The letter stands in contrast to another sent to Congress this week by 340 liberal U.S. rabbis, mostly from the reform and non-Orthodox streams of Judaism, who expressed support for the Iran nuclear deal and urged lawmakers to endorse it.

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

The arson attack at Duma has been attributed to "Jewish terrorists", but there is still no conclusive proof of Jewish or Israeli involvement; meanwhile the Israeli government is arresting Zionists in Israel and PA is expending its terror squads! Israeli governments, Labor and Likud parties, never missed an opportunity to undermine and weaken the Zionist movement, using real or false accusations. They have never apologised to Zionists activists, but are very quick to apologize for any accusations made against Israel by international anti-Semites!

Iran will Inspect Its Own Nuclear Program

An unusual agreement between the UN's IAEA will allow Iran to inspect its own Parchin nuclear site, allegedly used to develop weapons. The investigation of the Parchin nuclear site by the International Atomic Energy Agency is linked to a broader probe of allegations that Iran has worked on atomic weapons. (A 24 days’ notice was not enough - now the ‘Ugly Nothing’ is making more ‘sweet’ deals with anti-Israel Iran!)

Nasrallah is Right - Israel Has "No Strategy"

In a televised speech on the anniversary of the end of the Second Lebanon War in 2006, Nasrallah declared "Israel admits it has no strategy that can defeat Hezbollah. Not from the air and not from the ground.” (Israel has forgotten the Zionist dream of Jewish people and has no clear national goal - how to defeat its enemies and how to reclaim Jewish land from Arab occupation)

Huckabee: West Bank is Part of Israel

Republican presidential candidate includes Judea and Samaria, biblical name for the West Bank, as part of ‘all of Israel’ during visit to Israel. Huckabee said he is visiting Israel to meet with officials to discuss the Obama administration’s nuclear agreement with Iran. (Is it a genuine support, or another US presidential candidate ‘in the search of Jewish money and votes’ fake visit, which will follow by change of tune after election? Obama also visited Israel before his first election.)

Turkey Building Fence and Killing Refugees - Nobody Protests!

1) The Turkish military has started building a concrete wall along the border with Syria following a series (just a few) of attacks. The Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) is building the three meter (10 feet) high wall in the Reyhanli district of Hatay province. So far, Turkish military operation has focused mainly on Kurdish rebels (not ISIL), who have responded by tearing up a 2013 ceasefire and waging a bloody campaign against the security forces. 2) Three Syrians trying cross the border into Turkey have been killed by Turkish border guards. At least seven others were also injured by the troops near the Syrian border town of Tal Abyad in al-Raqqa.

Time is Running out for Attack on Nuclear Iran

A Russian diplomatic source corroborated an Iranian report that claimed Moscow will supply four batteries of S-300 surface-to-air missiles to the Islamic Republic. Russian President Vladimir Putin had been ready to deliver the S-300 system to Iran already in 2010, but then agreed to ban the sale under pressure from the US. Israel has also pushed Moscow not to send them to Iran.

Israel Sold Drones for Jordan to Fight ISIS

In its first arms sale to an Arab country, Israel has sold Jordan 12 advanced unmanned aerial vehicles of the Heron TP and Skylark types. They are urgently needed to beef up the counter-terrorism campaign against the ISIL.

US will not Release Hunger-striking Guantanamo Detainee

Lawyers from the US justice department have blocked a legal request, made on health grounds, to release a Guantanamo Bay detainee who weighs just 34kg after an eight-year hunger strike. Yemeni detainee Tariq Ba Odah, 36, has been force-fed by nasal tube since he stopped eating solid food in 2007. (But Israel has and still having problem with force-feeding!)

‘Palestine Refugees’ are Unappreciative Bastards

Senior members of Hamas have escalated their threats against UNRWA (the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East), following UNRWA's announcement that it will have to reduce its services (to already the fourth generation of professional refugees) due to a lack of funding. The organization is currently running on a deficit of $101 million. Mushir al-Masri called the decision "an open war against our people and our refugees, and a preparatory step towards removing the right of return to the homes… He further called for Islamic national forces and to Palestinians to come out in "revolution and rage against the decisions which hurt refugees."

Traditional Anti-Semites in Iranian Deal Rush!

Britain reopened its embassy in Iran this weekend nearly four years after Iranian protesters stormed two British diplomatic compounds in Tehran in November 2011, smashing windows, torching a car and burning the British flag.

Iranian Terror Front on the Golan

Iranian-backed network fired, on Thursday Aug. 20, a salvo of four rockets from the Golan into upper Galilee and the Golan. This was an unusually long-range attack from within Syria, Iranian Al Qods and Hizballah officers were building a new terrorist network for mounting large-scale terrorist attacks on Israel from the Syrian border opposite the Golan. There are three radical terrorist movements’ staff in the new network.

Synagogue Arson - No International 'Outrage'

Arsonists set fire to a small roadside synagogue in north-central Israel before dawn in Friday, but the fire was put out before it could consume holy books and tefillin (phylacteries). The synagogue is located next to a rest stop on Highway 6, and enables travellers to make a “pit stop” for praying and then continue to drive down the major thoroughfare.

Quote of the Week:

“The (Israeli) High Court has not only shortened the period of staying in Holot (detention of illegal migrants) to one year that will not create an incentive to leave the country, it is currently also postponing the implementation of the arrangement for infiltrators to leave Israel to countries that are not their countries of origin." - Gilad Erdan, Internal Security Minister - It is well-known fact that Israeli justice system is infested by anti-Zionist self-haters, Labor party stooges!

They Say Islam is Religion of ‘Peace’!

Surah 5:33-34 - Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger strive upon earth (to cause) corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world: and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment, (34) Except for those who return (repenting) before you apprehend them, And Know that Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

Surah 4:89 - “…But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.

Surah 8:60 - “… Strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of God and your enemies…”

Surah 9:5 - “…When the sacred months (Ramadan?) are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them; besiege them; and lie in ambush everywhere for them…”

Surah 9:123 - “O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness. And know that Allah is with the righteous.

Surah 47:4 - “He called them to him and struck off their heads”

Surahs 47:4 - “When ye encounter the infidels, strike off their heads…”

(Some Muslim intellectual believes Islam was high-jacked by Islamists. “Islamism steals from Islam for its own totalitarian ambition,” said Dr. Qanta Ahmed, a Muslim intellectual. Is she right or it is just a ‘smoke screen’ to protect the ‘silent’ Islamic majority from angry reaction to the atrocities that have being committed by ISIS in the name of Allah, as it is prescribed by Koran?)
