Iran Declares War against the Jewish People


Pages: 1 2

The Iranian government, long known for its Holocaust denial and anti-Zionism, has now declared war against the Jewish people.  In a speech delivered in Tehran, Vice President Mohammad-Reza Rahimi accused the Jewish people of spreading illegal drugs around the world, killing black babies, starting the Bolshevik Revolution and causing many of the world’s other ills.  His “proof”:  “The Islamic Republic of Iran will pay for anyone who can research and find one single Zionist who is an addict.  They do not exist.  This is the proof of their involvement in drugs trade.”

There are, of course, numerous addicts among Jews and Zionists, as there are among all groups.  Israel has several treatment centers for drug addicts as do Jewish communities throughout the world.  He also cited “proof” that the Jews caused the Bolshevik Revolution:  not a single Jew was killed during that Revolution.  Of course, thousands of Jews were murdered during the Bolshevik Revolution as well as during Stalin’s purges in the decades following the establishment of the Soviet Union.

But don’t expect truth from a country whose leaders deny the existence of even a single gay person in all of Iran.

Vice President Rahimi cited the Talmud as the source of his claptrap and in support of his claim that Jews believe that they are racially superior and that “God has created the world so that all other nations can serve them.”

These bigoted claims would be laughable if they did not have such a long and disturbing history.  Virtually everything stated by Vice President Rahimi came directly out of Hitler’s playbook of the 1930s and Stalin’s playbook of the 1940s and 50s.  They must be taken seriously in light of the fact that Iran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons and has already called for the Jewish state to be wiped off the map.  Moreover, Iran’s surrogate, Hezbollah, has invited all the Jews of the world to move to Israel so that it will be easier to destroy them in one fell swoop.

Taken together, these statements and actions constitute a clear incitement to genocide, which is explicitly prohibited by international law and by the rules governing the International Criminal Court.  Professor Irwin Cotler, the former minister of justice and attorney general of Canada, has drafted a brilliant brief making the case for indicting the Iranian leaders for inciting genocide against the Jewish people.  Vice President Rahimi’s speech constitutes additional evidence of that crime, if any were needed.

    Dersh nails it again…but is anyone who needs to hear this really listening?

    • stern

      Exactly. It is once again permissible to be anti-Semitic, and will soon no longer be necessary to disguise it as "anti-Zionism". The people Dershowitz mentions are simply on the leading edge – and far from listening to us, they're making all the noise. We need to get loud – very loud.

  • @rushetteny

    As an ex-Democrat pro-Israel Jew, how I wish that Mr. Dershowitz would speak frequently and urgently about the sad truth of the New Left Jew Hatred. He is the one voice familiar enough to my parents' generation to cause a disruption in service. A vociferous repudiation of what his party has become could, potentially, cut through the silence of the corrupt, silence media. Of course, this would mean Mr. Dershowitz would have to forgo the CocktailParty and sip on some tea. The stakes are so high. High enough to pierce the bubble of, say, …. Martha's Vineyard in July?

  • Marty

    And, of course, this rampant and medieval anti-semitism will be vigorously denounced by The Washington Post and The New York Times. The irrational hatred of radical islamists and democrats (you know, the two exemplary vanguards of slavery, racism, treason, and violence) make them and the occupy movement the spiritual descendants of fascism and communism not to mention the ku klux klan and father coughlin. But this is also the result of the relentless propaganda pumped out by the media in the muslim world since islam's alliance with germany 75 years ago. islam is essentially the longest running anti-semitic movement in history. It cannot be reasoned with and anyone who tries is wasting time. Fortunately, muslims are cowards who cannot confront anyone who stands up to them. They can only slink back to their hellholes and hate some more.

    Dershowitz is a secular Jew who remain blind to the great mystery of why so much of the world hates Jews.
    No secular logic can account for this murderous hatred that continues to persist century after century.
    Too bad that Dershowitz and other secular and 'liberal' Jews lack the intellectual curiosity to 'just read the instructions'. Deuteronomy Chapter 28 states the cause plainly. Obey biblical law and G-d will protect the Jews. Ignore the law and Jews will be abandoned to their enemies. Naturally Jewish leaders in both Israel and America are mostly in violation of the law. One would think that after so much suffering over so many centuries that Jews would ponder this admonition. But so far nothing registers in their minds. Even the bible calls the Jews 'a stiff necked (obstinate) people'.

    American Jews enjoy the individual right to keep and bear arms, as guaranteed in the 2nd Amendment and as applied to the States through the due process clause of the 14th Amendment. Letters to Editors, public debates, and p.r. blitzes all have their places. Armed defense is sanctioned by the Torah; don't let the A.D.L. and Dershowitz tell you otherwise.

  • Schlomotion

    Mr. Dershowitz has really outdone himself as the Jewish Al Sharpton in this article. In it, he not only attacks Iran but Alice Walker while denying every aspect of Jewish involvement in history save for the polio vaccine. He denies the Israeli cocaine trade, the 1880s Eastern European Jewish onslaught of soci.alism, Leon Trotsky, and the triple shutdown Israel has received over just the past year for trying to get a war on against Iran. Never underestimate the scrawny. Microphones and megaphones do wonders.

    • reader

      How many copies of the Elders of Zion do you own, tro schlo? By the way, you keep ignoring a few facts I had pointed out many times:

      Zionists were against the defeatist Bolsheviks, according to the revolution's mastermind Parvus himself;
      Sovnarkom – the first Bolshevik government – had only one allegedly Jewish member (Trotsky) out of 18
      Trotsky himself denied even being Jewish

      • Schlomotion

        Those are false facts. And it's hard to deny being Jewish when your name is Lev Bronstein.

        • reader

          The facts can't be false, troll. Your falsehoods are. And Trotsky did not find it hard to deny being Jewish. He simply did. In fact, his family never observed Judaism, or speak Hebrew or Yiddish. Moreover, even though it's largely irrelevant, a Russian researcher of Pushkin lineage insisted that Trotsky was not even "ethnically" Jewish, his father being put up for adoption to a "sober" Jewish family – as was customary for the out-of-wedlock children of the Russian nobles.

    • Touchstone

      Only someone with an all-consuming anti-Jewish obsession would find something objectionable about "asking people of good will to condemn all anti-Jewish bigotry", as Dershowitz put it.

      Why isn't Dershowitz allowed to speak up on behalf of Jews who are slandered and demonized by the bigots he takes issue with, the same ones you conspicuously overlook? If he doesn't do it, who will? You?

      When you have an ax to grind with a particular messenger, you shoot him while ignoring his message, even though it's a perfectly justified, relevant, and important message.

      Why the hell should he have to mention the things you list in the context of an article that's about something else, namely the villains who seek to cause harm to Jews? Just because his article doesn't satisfy your ad hoc, arbitrary checklist doesn't make it deficient. Who are you to fling random prerequisites at authors and demand that they meet each one?

      You offer ZERO in the way of cogent, convincing defenses for Iran, for Alice Walker, or for anyone else he criticizes. You offer absolutely no REASON, compelling or otherwise, why these people SHOULDN'T be attacked. You just attack him for attacking! What an empty waste of words you've written. Unlike you, Dershowitz puts forth a rational argument and backs it up with examples to support his thesis. His article is full of facts and quotes. It therefore has the power to CONVINCE. Yours is simply full of tiresome, monotonous, indefensible, irrelevant, valueless, monomaniacal pettiness.

      • Schlomotion

        Obviously Alan Dershowitz needs nobody to "allow him" the freedom to vilify people in order to stay in the press. Last cycle he chose Angela Corey because she was an easy target professionally bound to not counterattack him while he defamed her and called for her jailing, and this time he chose Alice Walker to aggrandize himself against while trying to rip her down. The difference here is that I am consistently lampooning or vilifying Mr. Dershowitz and not seeking new targets every week.

        I don't need to give reasons compelling or otherwise in defense of Alice Walker, because Alice Walker is above reproach. She has made it. Done it. Published many many works and at her discretion established herself as well as helping several already established comediennes and personalities turn the corner as serious actresses and actors. If you look at the several articles here at FPM launched as calculated and coordinated conspiratorial broadsides against Ms. Walker, you can see there is no REASON, as you put it, save for a gang of Jews disliking something she said, namely and only that she will at her discretion not translate her work into Hebrew until Israel stops annexing Palestinian territory and oppressing them.

        Kudos to her.

        I am attacking Alan Dershowitz because whether it is Ms. Walker, Ms. Corey, Mr. Beinart, Mr. Atzmon, Mr. Mearsheimer or any other person he is vaingloriously trying to play David against, Mr. Dershowitz is huckstering for an ostensibly clean and fair fight, that involves himself trying to be Woody Allen in a tank, usually alone, yammering against an opponent who is not present, and always in a new hue of hubris, as the resume of his opponents reach ever higher into the realm of human creative accomplishments.

        As to when I chose to vilify Mr. Dershowitz, it began in 2004 when I saw him stain the steps of Faneuil Hall with the indelible markings of one of his imaginary but loud lines drawn between freedom and Israel after the year zero established by 9/11. No. No there is not a brokerage between American Liberty and the Jewish fear of Muslims. No way. No dice. No can do. Mr. Dershowitz' most hackneyed trope is to portray himself as a liberal, open minded sort who is merely confronting something which went "over the line." Fie on him and his imaginary lines. Mr. Dershowitz does not broker what is on two sides of a line. He is an opinionist and a television troll, but the Harold and the Purple Crayon routine is crap because he likes to draw it censoriously across peoples' faces and through their books and saxophone solos.

        • Touchstone

          "Alice Walker is above reproach. She has made it. Done it. Published many many works and at her discretion established herself…"

          There are no sacred cows. Nobody is above reproach. Publishing books doesn't make one bulletproof. Neither does "making it" in any field. Prestigious accolades, the esteem of peers and critics, healthy book sales – these are all nice things, but they don't confer immunity from criticism. If anything, they invite scrutiny.

          Dershowitz has "made it", too. He's published many books. He's earned much in the way of accolades, esteem and prestige. Yet somehow you don't seem to find him sacrosanct. Curious, that.

          By the way, after a necessary absence I responded to your posts on the "Alinskyites" page.

          • Schlomotion

            Yes. Indeed Mr. Dershowitz has made it as well. No doubt. But he still seems to think that the Israel Lobby is a sacred cow and no person should be left unshredded if they cross over his ever-weaving "line" of chutzpah. Case in point Peter Beinart, for whom Mr. Dershowitz hastily tried to move the line to include within the tent of secrecy so that the public would not see the real dissension in the Zionist community about how they treat and are perceived in America, and how they treat Palestinians. It still amazes me the immovable blocks of creative talent that Mr. Dershowitz tries to rip down despite his career.

            The other line that he shifts frequently is the line of his criticism. He knows people don't like a censor. He takes great care to say he is only shaming, even though really he is calling for Boycott Divestment and Sanctions. He says he is for a two-state solution, but he really means in the infinite and far fetched future and only by eternal long division. He knows people don't like genocide, attrition and land grabbing. He says he is for even handed and open intellectual discourse, even though he wiggles around and starts defining all the acceptable and unacceptable parameters. He knows Procrustes is the villain and Theseus is the hero. That doesn't stop him from trying to affix people to the bed of media, stretching them to fit and hacking off the excess. He wants to scale all critics of the Israel Lobby into the same "over the line" racked and hacked object.

            That's very un-jazzy. This bandit of the television underworld can only pump so much null and place so many brackets around critics to squeeze them into the double-bed matrix of semite/antisemite. Some of these people he goes after are heroes, and they don't exaggerate or truncate at his behest. Mr. Dershowitz cannot fabricate a consensus on them by yelling the word "shame." He cannot shame heroes for hubris. He is not a god yet.

            (I was very glad for your responses on the "Alinskyites" page and did reply).

    Iran has not shown itself to be a showboat of sanity in the World but this nitwit Rahimi exposes
    the idiocy prevalent in Iranian leadersip. What I find dsturbing above and beyond Iranian
    lunacy is antisemetic rhetoric of religious leaders that is blatantly false. What is in their heads
    when lying about Israel and Jews, have these so called religious leaders not heard and not
    understood the basic Command of God "Thou shalt not bear false witness…." . Who do
    they serve good or evil, obvious to me they should be defrocked and exposed as to how
    false they are. They are false teachers and shed light onto the spread of evil beyond Islam.

      could u outline the "lies" you refer to?…
      who runs the global drug/pornography industry if not Jews?
      which race has the highest proportion of atheists if not Jews?
      you are totally impervious to the divine light of truth! : i wonder if that is by choice or an involuntary expression of inbuilt evilness…?

      • WilliamJamesWard

        Lets start wth every word out of the mouth of every Iranian leader and every Muslim where
        they believe in lies as a way of life, and the father of lies is theirs. So called Christian
        leaders that impune Israel are false and do not know the Scriptures or are from whatever
        pride and worldly avarice lost to Truth. Reread the article and what was said against
        Israel and if you can not discerne how false it is you who is delusional. I would say if
        a Jew was and athiest then that is sad, if a pornorgrapher that is sinful and wrong,
        but individual wrongs by some will be there's to answer for. Islam is inherently evil
        and evil moves through the Western World but is not it's basic value. Tell me
        what the author said that is untrue and consider that your opinion but seach out the
        actulity of Israeli through the Scriptures and then form and opinion. Israel is not calling
        for harm and evil to befall anyone, the Islamic world is viscious and without any good.
        If you do not like my opinion, well that's just to bad…………………….William

    These Iranian losers are toothless – if they disagree, they should do something. They will get their butts handed to them, but that is what they deserve.

  • Ghostwriter

    Well,I'm not surprised that the Iranian Mullahs pal,Schlockmotion would come on with another fact-free rant. He blames Jews for every calamity in history. I wouldn't be surprised if this pinhead blamed Jews for Mt. Vesuvius destroying Pompeii. I wouldn't put it past the creep. His anti-Jewish posts are extremely nauseating and vile. I wish he'd stop.

  • Paul Felix Schott

    IRAN … The World is going to Renewable Energy with all the SUNLIGHT we get SOLAR Energy would be very easy to do hear. Do you think the rest of the world will see what we are really doing building more Reactors then we could ever use in a country this size? But we need the electric power to Enrich Uranium to make Many Atomic Nuclear Weapons, to bring the world to a Hellish Place. Earthquakes are increasing every year and could cause us the bad mishap or a catastrophic failure 97 million Iranians could die. Just keep this out of the NEWS.
    We only need to play Cat and Mouse a little Longer and on one will be able to stop us. What about GOD?

  • SAM000

    The solution of IRAN is the IRANIAN RESISTANCE, The Jews of WWII were abandoned to NAZISM deliberately by the Europeans leaded by UK and US.
    HITLER found against himself a PACIFIC and Ignorant world concerning the JEWS, and he exterminated 6 Million Jews under the observation of an agreed world.
    When the world built the UN, they never talked about the sanctions about a power who wants to annihilate a people.
    How many times the Mullahs officials have called for the Jews extermination?!
    Why the Mullahs regime has a representation seat in UN?!
    This Criminal Regime of the MULLAHS do not represent the IRANIANS.
    We are not anti-JEWS.
    we are ANTI-MULLAHS.
    We are ANTI ISLAMIC REGIME of the MULLAHS.
    WE ARE IRANIANS.
    WE HATE the COWARDICE EU an US ADMINISTRATION of OBAMA who emboldens consciously the MULLAHS.
    The JEWS are not the sole target of the MULLAHS, before the JEWS the Iranians and their RESISTANCE are exposed and USA collaborate with the MULLAHS to exterminate the RESISTANCE.
    USA and MULLAHS consider the RESISTANCE "TERRORIST ".
    The Mullahs are right to consider the RESISTANCE "TERRORIST", BUT, USA?! why, what kind of interest (anti Iranian and anti-Jews) gathers USA administration and the MULLAHS?
    FOR A HANDFUL OF DOLLARS OBAMA shares AHMADINEJAD's VISION?!

    Mr Dershowitz speaks the truth about Israel and Iran and the ongoing war against the Jews.
    That's all the so-called "Cycle of Violence" is .
    A continuation of the Holocaust but now the difference is the Jews have a state of their own and are fighting back.
    The Jew haters really hate that.

  • Anamah

    Alan I am so relieved knowing you are in my team! What a pleasure to read your articles. Yes, I absolutely agree; is time to draw the line in the sand. Jewish people and Israel are a precious and essential part of our planet, and is time for the world to appreciate them and enjoy their values.

    It is sad but true, the increase of hatred toward the people of Israel.

    I was once on a solidarity demonstration in Oslo in front of the parliament building peacefully singing with others in solidarity for Israel nation and its people, the anti-demonstrators started throwing things at us. Some enwrapped slippery liquid landed at my head just above ear and split all over my side. At the end I went home making no fuss about this. Others in our group received one or two different things thrown at them even though we were surrounded supposedly protected and shielded by the police (with their dogs and horses). As scary as it was, that people will physically attack those who are out to support Israel nation in a free and democratic Nation, I took it as my quota of standing for LORD and could not do anything about it since the LORD said we should bless and not curse for it is His fight.

    It is sad but true, the increase of hatred toward the people of Israel

    When I read the bible (the book of revelation among others) it is obvious that if the things written there were to take place, most of the world will hate the Israelites. The books states that the people of Israel, when they found themselves isolated and more helpless than ever (the time of Hitler included), will they seek GOD in Christ Jesus as the veil is removed from their eyes, then the LORD recuse them.

    I pray for comfort and protection of the elect in these times of prosecution all around the world against the children of GOD – Jew or gentile. In Jesus name Amen!!

  • Tess

    Psalm 147:1-3 (NKJV)
    Praise to God for His Word and Providence
    Praise the Lord!
    For it is good to sing praises to our God;
    For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful.
    The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
    He gathers together the outcasts of Israel.
    He heals the brokenhearted
    And binds up their wounds.

    Isaiah 40
    “Comfort, yes, comfort My people!”
    Says your God.
    “Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her,
    That her warfare is ended,
    That her iniquity is pardoned;
    For she has received from the Lord’s hand
    Double for all her sins.”
    The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
    “Prepare the way of the Lord;
    Make straight in the desert
    A highway for our God.
    Every valley shall be exalted
    And every mountain and hill brought low;
    The crooked places shall be made straight
    And the rough places smooth;
    The glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
    And all flesh shall see it together;
    For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
    The voice said, “Cry out!”
    And he[b] said, “What shall I cry?”
    “All flesh is grass,
    And all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.
    The grass withers, the flower fades,
    Because the breath of the Lord blows upon it;
    Surely the people are grass.
    The grass withers, the flower fades,
    But the word of our God stands forever.”
    O Zion,
    You who bring good tidings,
    Get up into the high mountain;
    O Jerusalem,
    You who bring good tidings,
    Lift up your voice with strength,
    Lift it up, be not afraid;
    Say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!”
    Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand,
    And His arm shall rule for Him;
    Behold, His reward is with Him,
    And His work before Him.
    He will feed His flock like a shepherd;
    He will gather the lambs with His arm,
    And carry them in His bosom,
    And gently lead those who are with young.
    Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,
    Measured heaven with a span
    And calculated the dust of the earth in a measure?
    Weighed the mountains in scales
    And the hills in a balance?
    Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord,
    Or as His counselor has taught Him?
    With whom did He take counsel, and who instructed Him,
    And taught Him in the path of justice?
    Who taught Him knowledge,
    And showed Him the way of understanding?
    Behold, the nations are as a drop in a bucket,
    And are counted as the small dust on the scales;
    Look, He lifts up the isles as a very little thing.
    And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn,
    Nor its beasts sufficient for a burnt offering.
    All nations before Him are as nothing,
    And they are counted by Him less than nothing and worthless.
    To whom then will you liken God?
    Or what likeness will you compare to Him?
    The workman molds an image,
    The goldsmith overspreads it with gold,
    And the silversmith casts silver chains.
    Whoever is too impoverished for such a contribution
    Chooses a tree that will not rot;
    He seeks for himself a skillful workman
    To prepare a carved image that will not totter.
    Have you not known?
    Have you not heard?
    Has it not been told you from the beginning?
    Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
    It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
    And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
    Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
    And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
    He brings the princes to nothing;
    He makes the judges of the earth useless.
    Scarcely shall they be planted,
    Scarcely shall they be sown,
    Scarcely shall their stock take root in the earth,
    When He will also blow on them,
    And they will wither,
    And the whirlwind will take them away like stubble.
    “To whom then will you liken Me,
    Or to whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One.
    Lift up your eyes on high,
    And see who has created these things,
    Who brings out their host by number;
    He calls them all by name,
    By the greatness of His might
    And the strength of His power;
    Not one is missing.
    Why do you say, O Jacob,
    And speak, O Israel:
    “My way is hidden from the Lord,
    And my just claim is passed over by my God”?
    Have you not known?
    Have you not heard?
    The everlasting God, the Lord,
    The Creator of the ends of the earth,
    Neither faints nor is weary.
    His understanding is unsearchable.
    He gives power to the weak,
    And to those who have no might He increases strength.
    Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
    And the young men shall utterly fall,
    But those who wait on the Lord
    Shall renew their strength;
    They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
    They shall run and not be weary,
    They shall walk and not faint.

    I'll be praying for Israel!
