Michael Freund served as Deputy Communications Director in the Israeli Prime Minister's Office under Binyamin Netanyahu during his first term of office. He is the Founder and Chairman of Shavei Israel (, a Jerusalem-based organization that searches for and assists the Lost Tribes of Israel and other "hidden Jews" seeking to return to the Jewish people. In addition, Freund is a correspondent and syndicated columnist for the Jerusalem Post, and authors a popular blog on Middle East affairs, Fundamentally Freund. A native New Yorker, Freund is a graduate of Princeton University and holds an MBA in Finance from Columbia. He has lived in Israel for the past 19 years and remains a loyal New York Mets fan....

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.

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.
