The murder of Jews, Islam's daily bread

Reader comment on item: Iran's Final Solution Plan

Submitted by Kenneth S. Besig (Israel), Nov 1, 2005 at 11:40

Unfortunately, the comments made by Iran's new president calling for the annihilation of the Jewish State are all too common throughout the Islamic world. Worse, this genocidal form of anti Semitism frequently finds expression among the intellectual elites and media professionals of all Western European countries and to a lesser extent, the United States of America. Thus to a large extent, the really murderous implications of the Iranian president's comments can be and have been discounted as mere rhetoric or hyperbole.

There is a difference however between those anti Semitic commentators in the West and those in the international Islamic world. In the West most of this sick rhetoric is just vulgar exaggeration, deliberate distortion, and intellectual laziness, whereas in the Islamic world, these genocidal outbursts are understood to mean exactly that, the annihilation of the Jewish State and the physical extermination of her Jewish inhabitants.

The Iranian Islamic Republic is quickly developing from a regional source of instability to a real and immediate international danger. So long as the West continues to try to accomodate these Islamic fanatics, and contain them diplomatically and politically, Iran will continue to develop it's weapons of mass destruction and when they obtain them, they will certainly use them.
