Netanyahu Speaks Truth to Power

Pages: 1 2

While Obama acknowledges the gravity of the Iranian threat, not only to Israel but to the United States’ vital security interests, he still thinks it is possible to reason with the mad mullahs and the megalomaniac Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Netanyahu is under no such illusions. He takes the mad mullahs and the megalomaniac Ahmadinejad at their word regarding their intentions to annihilate Little Satan, Israel, and then defeat the West, particularly Big Satan, the United States. Their pathological course is driven by their belief in the 12th Imam, the last Islamic “messiah,” and in their religious duty to hasten his return.

Destroying Israel  is a necessary but not sufficient step to hasten the 12th Imam’s arrival. The Big  Satan – the United States – must also be brought down. Iran’s Supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei believes he is the 12th Imam’s deputy on earth.

Here are a few samples of what these fanatical believers in the 12th Imam have declared:

On October 26, 2005, Ahmadinejad appearing at a conference entitled “A World without Zionism,” said:

They [ask]: “Is it possible for us to witness a world without America and Zionism?” But you had best know that this slogan and this goal are attainable, and surely can be achieved.

In December 2009, Ahmadinejad accused the United States of doing all it could to prevent the return of the 12th Imam:

We have documented proof that they [U.S. leaders] believe that a descendant of the prophet of Islam will raise in these parts [the Middle East] and he will dry the roots of all injustice in the world. They have devised all these plans to prevent the coming of the Hidden Imam because they know that the Iranian nation is the one that will prepare the ground for his coming and will be the supporters of his rule.

Ayatollah Khamenei linked Israel and the United States together as the mortal enemies of the 12th Imam and declared through a spokesman in August 2009:

We have to train honest forces that can stop the obstacles that may hinder the coming of the Mahdi like the United States and Israel.

In response to street protests in Iran, Khamenei blamed the United States and Israel. As translated by MEMRI, he told his supporters on February 15, 2011:

We say to the Americans and to the Zionists that we consider them to be the real instigators of the fitna. We will never forget who the main enemy is. We continue to shout passionately: Death to America, death to Israel.

Last month, Khamenei told worshippers that Israel was a “cancerous tumour that should be cut and will be cut.”

Addressing a conference of youths in Tehran on the Arab Spring, Khamenei proclaimed:

In light of the realization of the divine promise by almighty God, the Zionists and the Great Satan (America) will soon be defeated.

Iranian scientists working on Iran’s nuclear enrichment program share these beliefs. For example, the wife of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, an important Iranian nuclear scientist assassinated in Tehran, told the Fars News Agency in an interview published last month that “Mostafa’s ultimate goal was the annihilation of Israel.”

Whether it is their threats against the United States, Israel, or their own people protesting for individual freedom, Iran’s leaders today are committed to removing all obstacles, by whatever means are necessary, to achieve their ultimate goal of paving the way for the 12th Imam’s return. Crazy as this is, that is what they truly believe. With nuclear weapons in their hands and in the hands of their terrorist surrogates, the world faces a very scary future. If Israel concludes that it must move forward on its own to stop this mortal threat, it will be doing the entire free world a huge favor.

    Let's leave the "Free World" out of this. A nation that holds millions under decades of military occupation can hardly lay claim to being a champion of freedom and democracy. Israel has always followed solely its own interests. It does so with its occupations. It does so with its annexations. It does so with its "ambiguous" nukes and it is doing so with its attempt at blackmailing the US into war through its Aipac proxys.

    And how exactly is Iran supposed to pave the way for its 12 Immam by starting a suicidal atomic war followed by certain destruction? Stupid slogans for the simple minded.

      "Stupid slogans for the simple minded." What a way to conclude a post that is totally simple-minded.

      Do you have any idea how many Palestinians are under the rule of either Hamas or the Palestinian Authority? They are NOT "occupied"! The vast majority of them rule themselves. Badly, but that is their choice.

      Do you know how much land Israel has "annexed"? Practically none, since that land never belonged to anyone but the Ottoman powers that ruled it before 1914. And how many other nations has Israel threatened with nuclear destruction? Precisely none, unlike Iran, which daily calls for "Death to Israel" and "Death to America".

      And do you have any idea of the way Iran intends to bring the 12th Immam? Read your Islamic theology and you will discover that this supposed "coming" must be preceded by widespread global destruction, something the mullahs are only to happy to precipitate.

      Simple minded, indeed – and you prove it with every word you write.

      "A nation that holds millions under decades of military occupation"……Israel is a tiny nation of 7 million surrounded by some 400 million Arabs who hate their guts and want to destroy them (they tried 5 times already)…and they hold millions under military occupation???..these can only be the words of an Islamist, a brain-washed, totally inculcated pedophile admiring Muhammedan..Treetop..declare yourself for what you are…quit hiding under the guise of a "normal" person and tell us all how you are a part of this attempted Islamic
      global takeover and how your "god" says it is "honourable" to lie. C'mon now, let's hear it….

        I wonder where the likes of such people were when (Trans)Jordan annexed all of "Palestine" East of the Jordan River & declared independence in 1946?
        Or, when Jordan annexed Judea & Samaria in 1948!

      • Henry

        A war with Iran with Barack as our President would not be good for Christians nor Isreal. He is clearly a Bolshevik and he will surrender Isreal with slow reaction or no action to protect "Isreal's back."

        • Henry

          I spelled Israel incorrectly.

    • Choi

      You're starting to REEK like a PAID LEFTY SERIAL TROLL,which of course you are.
      Perhaps you're even connected to the GENERATOR of HATE in this country, aka American "academia".

    • HoR_Emperor

      "Stupid slogans for the simple minded." Well, you're certainly simple-minded in your obsessive hatred for Isreal.

    • Ghostwriter

      "Stupid slogans for the simple minded." Funny,treetop. That's what I thought of your entire post. Also,has anyone called you a Jew hating creep? Well,let me be the first to say it,you're a Jew hating creep.

  • EVABeliever

    Treebottom is a willfully ignorant anti-Semite! He ignores the truth because it is inconvenient. The truth negates his entire thesis so why use it? There is NO SUCH ENTITY AS "PALESTINIAN". There never was an Arab Palestinian government, state or culture. Where was treebottom when the Arabs controlled "East Jerusalem" and no Jews were permitted access? Treebottom should die a slow and painful death as should all other Jew hating idiots.

    Welcome treetop, your education starts today! Stick around, I was a brain dead liberal for many years too but after studying in depth, Islamic theology, mainly the Koran and Hadith, I realised my mind had been conditioned to loathe the west and accept that everyone else in the world is good! It is called 'post colonial guilt'. Unfortunately Islam, I'm afraid is unlike any other religion and is infact 90% geo politcal ideology, 10% religion. The reality is that it is completely fascist and responsible for hundreds of millions of deaths since it began. School, college, TV, papers etc will never give you the facts, you must teach yourself now. Good luck!

    We can at least appreciate the fact that the iranian leadership is saying exactly what it means (except for lying about nuclear research for peaceful purposes): it wants the complete destruction of Israel – both the nation and the state. The pedophile mullahs and their apologists will achieve both if Israel relies on the current administration to pursue policies that have already failed and made the United States a laughing stock. Israel has been given no choice. It must act as it sees fit in the interest of its own national security and the physical survival of its citizenry – both arab and Jewish. No one in their right mind will blame Israel. Those who are out of their mind will not be persuaded anyway and will remain unhappy as long as Jews live and prosper.

    Can AIPAC see who Obama really is? Talk loud and no action, worse yet act agaist his talks. Or does AIPAC still stay deceived comfortably?

  • g_jochnowitz

    Iran's leaders are totally selfless. They are willing to let their people suffer horrible costs in order to pursue virtue: destroying Israel and killing all its citizens: Jewish, Muslim, Christian.
    Former moderate President Ali Akhbar Rafsanjani, in the annual Al-Quds (Jerusalem) sermon given on December 14, 2001, said that if one day the world of Islam comes to possess nuclear weapons, Israel could be destroyed. Rafsanjani said that the use of a nuclear bomb against Israel would leave nothing standing, but that retaliation, no matter how severe, would merely do damage to the world of Islam (reported in MEMRI Special Dispatch Series No. 325).

    Can someone please explain to me the point of this meeting? For Obama it was all about getting elected in Nov 2012. But what was in it for Netanyahu? I can only guess that he must have come here for some other urgent business. Surely by now he's realized that it's a complete waste of time to speak with Obama. Was he actually trying to help Obama get re-elected? Stranger things have happened in politics. Maybe Obama made a secret deal with him to guarantee Israel's survival? I don't get it.

    • Jim_C

      I really would not be surprised if the latter were closer to the truth. By the way: the reason all this is happening? It's an election year in all three countries. (I know, I know–Iranian "elections." But it's showbiz there even as it is here).

    Just wasting some time on Digg and I found your entry. Not typically what I like to learn about, but it was certainly worth my time. Thanks.
