      Iran's War on Israel


      At the same time that they are striving to develop a nuclear capability, the Ayatollahs in Iran are also busy intensifying their war-by-proxy against the Jewish state.

      With Israel’s elections just days away, the Teheran terror-masters are urging their Palestinian cohorts to carry out a major attack.

      Indeed, just the other day, Israeli police foiled a suicide bombing when they heroically captured a Palestinian terrorist on the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway who was on his way to his target.

      And now, Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz has revealed that the Iranians transferred $1.8 million to the Islamic Jihad terrorist group to carry out attacks against Israel.

      This, Mofaz noted, is the largest short-term transfer of cash that Iran has ever sent to the Palestinian terror organization.

      Iran_sucks So let there be no mistake about what Iran’s intentions are: they want to kill as many Jews as possible, whether by funding terror attacks or obtaining more lethal non-conventional weapons systems.

      Thus, however frightening or alarming the idea of a military operation against Iran may seem, we should have no doubts about why such an undertaking may have to be carried out. Quite simply – there may be no other way to stop the mullahs from pursuing their madness to the end.
