We already knew that the Iranian leadership hates the Talmud, denies the Holocaust, funds genocidal terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah, murders Israelis and Jews abroad, and generally seems ill-disposed to the very existence of the State of Israel. Now a Reuters exclusive report based on hitherto unseen documents brings the whole picture into focus: the mullahs want to murder Jews. Reports Reuters:
New York police believe Iranian Revolutionary Guards or their proxies have been involved so far this year in nine plots against Israeli or Jewish targets around the world, according to restricted police documents obtained by Reuters…The reports detail two plots in Bangkok and one each in New Delhi, Tbilisi, Baku, Mombasa and Cyprus. Each plot was attributed to Iran or its Lebanese Hezbollah militant allies, said the reports, which were produced following the bombing in Burgas, Bulgaria of a bus carrying Israeli tourists…A second U.S. official said U.S. federal authorities’ tally of alleged Iran-linked plots in 2012 largely paralleled the NYPD list.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: this is how the Iranian regime conducts itself without the most destructive weapons known to man. What such an unhinged, arrogant, Jew-hating regime would do with a nuclear shield after successfully having overcome the West’s attempts to hamper it is a genuinely terrifying thought.A military strike against the Iranian nuclear program would be costly and risky. There are no guarantees of success, and the chance of a wider war is real. VM still thinks the best course of action is to push the diplomacy and sanctions route as far as they will go, but the mullahs need to know that the road doesn’t end with either Israel or the US giving in. These people are not nice, and getting their hands on more powerful weapons will not improve them.
