Iranian commander vows ‘harsher revenge soon’ against U.S.
QUINT FORGEY, 01/09/2020

A leader of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards on Thursday threatened that his nation would extract “harsher revenge soon” against the United States after launching a missile strike against military bases in Iraq housing American troops.

The remarks from senior commander Abdollah Araghi — reported by the semi-official Tasnim news agency, according to Reuters — come after President Donald Trump apparently sought Wednesday to defuse tensions between Washington and Tehran in the aftermath of the Iranian assault.

Forty years of revenge, revenge, revenge!

It never ends... :(

With this kind of barbaric rhetoric constantly coming from both sides, it's best to walk away & leave it in God's hands.


PS

Great work, Walid. Hope you’re proud of yourself.

Jewish Self-Hatred Rears Its Ugly Head
Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Jewish American leftists pandering to Islamo-fascists and BDS anti-Israel thugs; Israeli left-wing politicians coddling radical Arab nationalists sitting in the Israeli Knesset, who deny Jews the right to political self-determination, i.e. the State of Israel; these are just a couple examples of the ugly, hypocritical, and dangerous dark-side of Jewish self-hatred and faithlessness.

Speaking of hatred:

Last Time Iraq, This Time Iran, Time For Purim
By Ariel Natan Pasko
- 13 Adar 5778 – February 28, 2018


Stop and think for a moment: the first Gulf War in 1991, ended erev – just before – Purim. The second Gulf War in 2003, began motzei – just after – Shushan Purim. Get the picture? In between, “The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honor,” (Megilat Esther 8:16). Look what happened to Saddam Hussein and Iraq. Hussein was hanged like Haman, get it! And, Iraq isn’t a threat to Israel anymore.

But, we already knew that wars are for us – i.e., the Jews and Israel.
Chazal – our sages – throughout the ages have explained the Torah, telling us that everything that happens in the world is for the benefit of the Jewish People. As it says in the Talmud, “Every war in Israel is a stage in the redemption of Israel,” (Megillah 17b). The Redemption occurs in stages, war after war.

Simply put another way, if all the world is a stage, then the Jews – and especially those in the Land of Israel – are the lead actors on the stage of history, and the goyim – the nations, i.e. the gentiles – have supporting roles, while the evil-doers are props and background scenery. As our tradition states, G-d – the great playwright – created the world for the sake of the Jewish People, and it is our responsibility to implement the Torah – absolute morality and the blueprint of creation – in it.


Read the Purim story in Megilat Esther again, it’s a rags to riches story on a national scale. Haman, the proto-typical anti-Semite, plans mass murder of the Jews and in the end pays with his life, the life of his ten sons – all hanged – and the Jews kill 75, 811 members of the anti-Semitic – i.e. Nazi – party of the time.
...

Bravo, sir!

More sanctions and bullying, eh?

Pompeo doesn’t look like he’s ever missed a meal so what would he know about starving?

This is gangsterism at its worst and will yield more losses and bloodshed for everyone involved.

No class, dignity or diplomacy. Just brute thuggery.

Bravo!

Early life and education

Jay Alan Sekulow was born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Natalie (née Wortman) and Stanley Sekulow.[3][4] Sekulow was born and raised Jewish.[5] Sekulow graduated from Lakeside High School in Atlanta, Georgia, and earned a B.A. in 1977 and a J.D. from Mercer University in 1980.[6] While attending Atlanta Baptist College (now the Atlanta campus of Mercer University), Sekulow became interested in Christianity and converted to Messianic Judaism after encountering Jews for Jesus.[7] Sekulow earned a Ph.D. from Regent University in 2005, writing his dissertation on religious influence on Supreme Court Justices and their opinions.

Hmmm… Methinks, Jay converted to Jews for Judaism somewhere along the way.

Trump and Khamenei want the same thing
Aaron David Miller, January 8, 2020

(CNN)Despite the potential for serious escalation after the US killed Iran's top military commander Qasem Soleimani last Friday -- and Iran retaliated Tuesday with strikes on Iraqi air base hosting US and Iraq forces -- both Iran and the US have dodged a very dangerous bullet.

In fact, watching Tuesday night's Iran crisis play out, I was reminded of the joke about the guy who jumps off a 10-story building. As he's passing the 5th floor, someone yells out: "How ya doing?" "So far, so good," he replies.

But crisis averted does not mean America is on a glide path to a better relationship with Tehran. President Donald Trump's speech to the nation Wednesday morning -- confident, self-congratulatory and even triumphal in tone -- presented a dangerous misreading of both the US's leverage and Iran's continued capacity for trouble-making.

It's by no means clear that either country is willing or able to negotiate or even engage seriously with the another, though that's precisely what's needed.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/08/opinions ... index.html


With all due respect to Mr. Miller, I don’t think a deal with Khamenei could (or even should) be made. He and his ilk have been divisive obscurants since 1979. They pass themselves off as defenders of the faith and nation but it’s all theatrics, I’m afraid. His sole job is to blame America, England and Israel for all of Iran’s problems (as he fills his coffers with money derived from the blood, sweat and tears of Iranians). This bum hamstrings Iran's highly capable diplomats every step of the way.

That's how he rolls.

Ali Khamenei, you’re fired!

Bonyads
Bonyads (Persian: بنیاد‎ "Foundation") are charitable trusts in Iran that play a major role in Iran's non-petroleum economy, controlling an estimated 20% of Iran's GDP,[1] and channeling revenues to groups supporting the Islamic Republic.[2] Exempt from taxes, they have been called "bloated",[3] and "a major weakness of Iran’s economy".[4] They have also been criticized for reaping "huge subsidies from government", while siphoning off production to the lucrative black market and providing limited and inadequate charity to the poor.[3]

Monarchy
Founded as royal foundations by Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the original bonyads were criticized for providing a "smokescreen of charity" to patronage, economic control, for-profit wheeling and dealing done with the goal of "keep[ing] the Shah in Power."[5] Resembling more a secretive conglomerate than a charitable trust, these bonyads invested heavily in property development, such as the Kish Island resort; but the developments' housing and retail was oriented to the middle and upper classes, rather than the poor and needy.[6]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonyad

That’s just one of the many ways Ali and his besties rob Iranians.

Another is the Social Security hustle. According to Iran’s officialdom every Iranian expat can claim their retirement benefits.

My father worked in Iran for about 30 years. His line of work (land surveying eng.) took him all over Iran – rough terrain. He knew the country (roads, bridges and tunnels) like the back of his hand. Anyhow, in the 2010’s he attempted to collect his retirement benefits. After a few months his lawyer told him that the company headquarters had burned down and no record of him paying any taxes could be found (mind you, there should be seven copies), therefore there was nothing he could do. He also said one of my father’s colleagues, who still resides in Iran, was robbed of his retirement benefits as well.

Although he never spoke about it I could tell that he was really hurt. Money aside, what broke his heart was that his own Motherland basically erased him from its pages.

These bums also "nationalized" my father's partnership (among many other firms) shortly after taking power in the name of "Allah" of course.

Millions of Iranians have been (and continue to be) robbed by these bloodsucking Satanists.


Mashalla, Agha Ali. Hope it was worth it.

In other words, these bums were specifically put in power to yell “death to (America, Israel, and England).” This is all by design, Mr. President.

Picture 10

More than 100,000 people gathered outside Tehran's Bazaar Mosque on January 15, 1979. Troops stood by as demonstrators showered them with flowers and kisses while chanting "Long Live Khomeini" and "Death to the Shah."

A Negative Sum Game


Democrats lose six weeks of campaign time and Trump gets “impeached” and stands a better chance of getting reelected. Qui bono?

Why not work on the JCPOA in a bipartisan manner and build towards a final/comprehensive US/Russia/China/India “Unclear Disarmament” and put this Amalek (and the “Unclear Holocaust" fears it triggers) to bed once and for all?

And how many time do we plan on playing the “Ukraine” card (hacks, planes, etc.)?


PS

And a referendum in Iran on whether or not the people of Iran recognize the authority of the "Islamic" Republic (Ayatollah, Mullahs, "morality" police, etc.).


PPS

I personally have no problem with Israel being the sole nation on earth with the "Samson Option." If that anti-Amalek blankie helps Israelis sleep better at night, then I'm all for it!
