Hi Mr. Tovey,

First of all I do believe that you have misunderstood what was meant by some Iranian leaders by saying "Wipe Israel off the map" . They did not mean that they wanted to kill all the Jews. (this is proven by the fact there is still a very sizeable Jewish population present in Iran)What they meant was they wanted to end the injustice in the holy land whereby Israeli unjust policies affect the daily lives of Christians and Muslims. (For example the recent controversey in Israel regarding banning Arabs to marry Jewish girls as well as the controversey surrounding loyalty oath of all Israeli civilians) I guess this misunderstanding of Iranian leaders on your part is a result of your own biases against anything that is in your view not-sufficiently Judeo-Christian.

So it is clear that Iranians or any one who want to end injustice in Israel are not doing anything against God's plan. Now if you imply that supporting Israel means supporting all policies of Israel (like the recent banning of black Southern-Sudanese Christian refugees entering into Israel becasue they might create a demographic imbalance against Jews) and doing otherwise is acting against LORD's word then I belive you would also want to say to me that all previousl mentioned unjust and immoral actions of Israel are also a part of God's plan. Now my belief is that when you say that GOD is supprtive of the Israeli unjust and immoral policies that I just have mentioned then it would mean that you are saying that GOD is also unjust and in that scenario I have to say he is not GOD if he is unjust. Now does that mean you are an follower and worshipper of the devil himself since I belive all holy scriptures tell that the devil is unjust and immoral? To prove me wrong you need to tell me in clear terms whether or not GOD is supportive of immoral and unjust acts of Israel that I mentioned.

I am still waiting for you to give me at least one example of a nation or a people who did support Israel wholeheartedly and has survived in its original form. So what about that Sir ? Does your silence on that part does not indicate that the notion "those who curse Israel will be cursed or those who bless Israel will be blessed" is false ?

Take care of yourself and your family.
