The Iranian Islamic Regime … led by the Maniacal Mullahs … is Meshugana, fou, c’est fou, pazzo, loco en la cabeza … but, make no mistake … they are DEAD serious.
The Iranian Revolution was a hostile takeover (1978–1979) which violently ended the monarchy of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi and replaced it with an Islamic Republic, the theocracy of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (1901–1989). (Some still believe that coup de grâce was enabled by Jimmy Dhimmi’s administration … but that’s for another discussion.)
These Shia Muslim zealots have long referred to Israel as “the Little Satan” and the US as “the Big Satan” … and since Israel is in proximity to the former Persian Empire (and filled with more of the people they hate than the US), the crazy Clerics’ focus remains on the Jewish State.
The Mullahs, via their former kidnapper-turned-President Ahjad (short for Ahmadinejad), have said such things as:
2005 (BBC News):
Some European countries insist on saying that during World War II, Hitler burned millions of Jews and put them in concentration camps. Any historian, commentator or scientist who doubts that is taken to prison or gets condemned. Although we don’t accept this claim [of the holocaust], if we suppose it is true … If the Europeans are honest they should give some of their provinces in Europe – like in Germany, Austria or other countries – to the Zionists and the Zionists can establish their state in Europe. You offer part of Europe and we will support it.
2008 (AFP – Agence France-Presse): On Israel’s 60th birthday, Ahmadinejad said: “Those who think they can revive the stinking corpse of the usurping and fake Israeli regime by throwing a birthday party are seriously mistaken. Today the reason for the Zionist regime’s existence is questioned, and this regime is on its way to annihilation.”
2012 (Islamic Republic News Agency; The Jerusalem Post; Al-Akhbar; The Times of Israel): In July, ahead of Qods Day:
Ahmadinejad said that “any freedom lover and justice seeker in the world must do its best for the annihilation of the Zionist regime in order to pave the path for the establishment of justice and freedom in the world,” and that the ultimate objective of world forces must be the annihilation of the “Zionist regime”. Ahmadinejad added that “the Zionist regime is both the symbol of the hegemony of the Zionism over the world and the means in the hand of the oppressor powers for expansion of their hegemony in the region and in the world” and that “liberating Palestine” would solve all of the world’s problems. Ahmadinejad also made allegations that Zionists control the world’s media and financial systems, and that a “horrible Zionist current” had been managing world affairs for “about 400 years.”
But that’s all changed now, right? The new President Hassan Rouhani is a moderate … or is he?
2013 (In August, 2 days before his inauguration): “The Zionist regime is a wound that has sat on the body of the Muslim world for years and needs to be removed.”
And if these few examples have not shed some light upon the rabid-ness of this regime, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali “Coup-Coup” Khamenei “Tweeted” this concerning the turmoil and coup d’état in Egypt (caused by the Muslim Brotherhood’s stranglehold on power): “Mubarak’s collaboration w/ Israel & US made Egyptians feel humiliated so they made a #revolution & Zionists reacted against this revolution now.”
Wingnut? Indeed … but not the “grandpa thinks he’s Napoleon” type. This kind is perniciously serious.
And they’re prepping to have their digits on a nuke. It might very well be time to worry, just a wee bit…
Shalom through strength…
