A new book authored by the Ayatollah Khamenei and available for sale only in Iran has leaked into the hands of a few here in America. In the book, the Supreme Leader disguises his motives but clearly states he will destroy the state of Israel partly due to their loyalty to the Great Satan.
Waging jihad to reclaim Muslim lands has been a mantra in the Muslim world for many years and it is on this belief, allegedly, that the Ayatollah of Iran demands the destruction of the Israeli state.
It’s a way to unite the Muslim world against Israel and the United States.
Three days ago, The Gatestone Institute published a summary and some commentary on the new book authored by Iran’s Supreme Ruler who is referred to as “The flagbearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem.”
Amir Taheri, writing for the NY Post, has copy of the book which is only available in Arabic in Iran. He wrote that the U.S. government probably hopes the American people never hear about the book.
A blurb in the book called “Palestine” states that it is a new book, published by Islamic Revolution Editions last week in Tehran.
The author is identified as “Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Husseini Khamenei,” the “Supreme Guide” of the Islamic Republic in Iran, a man whose fatwa has been recognized by U.S. President Barack Obama as having the force of law.
Edited by Saeed Solh-Mirzai, the 416-page book has received approval from Khamenei’s office and is thus the most authoritative document regarding his position on the issue.
It begins by asserting that Israel has no right to exist as a state, not because of the European phenomenon of anti-Semitism but because of three well-established Islamic principles.
Israelis is an “enemy” and a “foe” because they are loyal to their ally the American Great Satan and they are integral to the “evil scheme” to dominate the “heartland of the Ummah.”
They have waged war on Muslims.
They are occupying Jerusalem, “Islam’s third Holy City.”
The Ayatollah asserts that land once belonging to Muslims must never be ceded to non-Muslims.
Israel’s destruction – the cancerous tumor – is aimed at discrediting the West and boosting Iran’s hegemony, the book states.
Gatestone finds the “sufferings of Palestinian Muslims” unconvincing because not all Palestinians are Muslims and because, among other reasons, the Ayatollah shows no sympathy for the Burmese Rohingya or the Chechens murdered by Putin or Muslims killed by fellow Muslims daily around the world.
The book calls for the liberation of Jerusalem and the Ayatollah uses three words to refer to how he plans to do it – “annhilation,” “fading out,” and “effacement.”
He wants to wage the war through low-intensity warfare that will make life unpleasant and force Israelis to leave Israel since most have dual-nationality and can leave for another country.
He cleverly doesn’t mention his nuclear program but makes reference to Israel not daring to take military action against them.
Khamenei believes the cost of the U.S. protecting Israel will be too high and they will back out as we already have. He calls it “Israel Fatigue.”
His solution will be a one-state nation called Palestine under Muslim rule with some legitimate Israelis being allowed to stay as protected minorities who have few rights and no right to vote. The new land would include the West Bank and Gaza. The Palestinians could vote against the Jews remaining as second-class citizens.
His fighters now launch terror attacks from Lebanon and Gaza which he boasts of in this book as well as his plans to set up Hezbollah units in the West Bank. All will be aimed at making Israelis’ lives unbearable.
His claim of not being anti-Semitic doesn’t wash, Gatestone believes, for a number of reasons. Threads of anti-Semitism run throughout the book and he has nothing to say about the vast areas of former Islamic land that are supposed to be returned, much of which is in China and Russia.
Gatestone has other interesting observations about why the book’s contentions are not honest which you can read on this link.
The Ayatollah wants to one day pray in Jerusalem. He, as usual, denies the Holocaust in the book.
Amir Taheri asks, “This is what Iran’s leaders are preaching to their people and their allies in the Middle East. Do we really want to give succor?”
The Obama administration has allowed Iran to become a major power in the Middle East from the “tiny country” he once thought them to be.
Of course a nuclear Iran poses a threat to the world and they do present a threat to us.
The nuclear deal will give the terror-sponsoring nation $150 billion immediately and Iran or any of the P5+1 can get out of the deal in 35 days. There will be no inspections of the military program, Canadians and Americans will not be allowed to inspect and the president claims no one knows what is in the side deals with the IAEA. We only are allowed to know it concerns the most vital inspections.
Yet, Congress and the American people are told to support this deal.
The sanctions, our one best leverage, will be ended by the rest of the world in 90 days and possibly by the U.S. as well. Nancy Pelosi says they have the votes in Congress to pass this “historic”, “landmark” sellout of an ally and even ourselves.
We have recognized Iran as a nuclear nation.
Since Obama’s 2008 speech in which he called Iran a “tiny country”, Iran has become dominant in Iraq, while allegedly fighting ISIS though they annihilate many of the Sunnis once they take back land; they have taken over much of Yemen; seek land in Saudi Arabia; have satellite governments in Syria; established a presence in Afghanistan and elsewhere.
As ISIS grew in strength, even The New York Times began to make note of the fact that the White House’s goals for an equitable nuclear accord with Iran might be frustrated by the administration’s increasing reliance on Iran as a source of troops in the war on ISIS.
Iran became our boots on the ground and we had at times become their air force. When they take back land, they take it back for themselves, not Iraq.
Our reliance on Iran to fight ISIS made the probability of a bad deal far more likely.
Mr. Obama has in essence charged Iran with being good leaders in the region to keep terrorists like ISIS under control but the problem is they too are terrorists who commit heinous crimes, according to Amnesty International, both in their war against Sunnis and others they disapprove of. Their crimes equal ISIS in viciousness. They are merciless.
Iran executed almost three hundred of their own people last year, including children,
This year, the year of the deal, they’ve stepped up the executions. Iran executed 694 people in the first half of 2015, an “unprecedented spike” Amnesty International warns.
Every six hours, someone is executed in Iran and many are under the age of 18. Most are killed over some perceived sin against the state or because they are involved with drugs in some way. Drugs are an increasing problem in Iran.
Forty to fifty percent of Iran is comprised of religious and ethnic minorities. If they rebel in any way, it’s considered an “enmity against God” and they are executed.
Iran’s rise as a nuclear nation will enable them to move ahead with their desire to rule the Middle East and destroy Israel, who have committed the unforgivable sin of serving as an ally of the Great Satan.
The hill reported today that a new Quinnipiac poll shows Americans oppose the Iran deal by 57%. Wait until they find out about the book!
The end game is to destroy the Great Satan. That’s what the Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles are for.
