Iran's Sinister Islamist Paranoia

"A nuclear-armed Iran is an absolutely unacceptable threat to Israel, to the region and the United States. And I want to reiterate, which I know people still doubt here [Biden visiting the Middle East; Israel and the West Bank], if in fact they break the deal, we will act."
U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden

"The reason we designed our missiles with a range of 2,000 km is to be able to hit our enemy the Zionist regime from a safe distance." 
"The more sanctions and pressure our enemies apply ... the more we will develop our missile program."

"Iran is making a mockery of President Obama’s vow to confront Iran’s dangerous and illicit acts."
"[Obama must] aggressively enforce all sanctions against Iran’s missile programs, support for terrorism and human rights abuses. No more looking the other way."
Representative Ed Royce, the Republican chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives' Foreign Affairs Committee

"To my regret there are some in the West who are misled by the honeyed words of part of the Iranian leadership while the other part continues to procure equipment and weaponry, to arm terrorist groups."
Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon

The West clings to the preposterous notion that Iran's President Hassan Rouhani is a 'moderate'; in comparison to his predecessor, a raving, pathological war-monger, certainly Rouhani is more cautious and skilled in veiling his and his government's earned credentials as supporters of terrorism, and in fact, a government whose agenda is not that far removed from terror-central itself. Repeatedly referred to as a 'moderate', the genial and smiling Rouhani is skilled in intrigue and circumlocution.

And what more proof is required of its sinister intent toward a member-country of the Middle East than the constant declarations from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, supported by the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei of the Islamic Republic's intention to destroy Israel, than the latest ballistic missiles test-fired this week with the phrase "Israel must be wiped out" printed in Hebrew on them. So much for the January nuclear agreement.

A series of such tests are clearly meant to demonstrate with no equivocation that Iran plans to pursue its ballistic program. That it plans as well to pursue its nuclear program, regardless of the deal reached with world powers last year is obvious enough by its actions augmented by its defiant and belligerent threats. Threats which, interestingly enough, have never been denounced in the hallowed halls of the United Nations which is dedicated to world peace.

When earlier missiles were test-fired in October of 2015, Washington imposed sanctions against businesses and individuals in response, a reaction that failed to impress the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps which responded it would never succumb to pressure imposed by any source, to force restraints over the Republic which invokes the requirement of self-defence as reason for its actions in view of the United States' previous interventions in the Middle East.

Israel, as a member-country of the Middle East has never launched a war of aggression against any of its neighbours, although it has launched responses to attacks that Arab countries have initiated. Although Israel had fair enough relations with Iran under Shah Pahlavi, before the Islamic Revolution, when Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini returned from Paris to his native land to establish his brand of fundamentalist Islam, Iran's relations with Israel entered a new track.

Simply put: classical Islam which is the pure Islam tracing to its founder the Prophet Mohammad in the 7th Century, never cedes land once consecrated to Islam to any other religion. That Israel and Judaism vastly preceded Islam by thousands of years -- and its heritage and culture stems from its original occupation of the land it now sits upon, albeit much decreased -- is of little moment to the jihad dominance of conquest in Islam.
