JPost: Lotfollah Dezhkam, the representative for the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei in Fars Province, urged the elimination of Israel in a Friday sermon in the city of Shiraz.
The Islamic clerical firebrand declared, “The global arrogance led by America with complicity of Israel seeks to delay the realization of an important issue, which is the destruction of the Zionist regime.” Kian Meli, a news outlet opposed to the Islamic Republic of Iran, quoted his remarks. Three regime-controlled news organizations – Islamic Republic News Agency, Fars News and Tasnim – reported on his speech.
Sheina Vojoudi, an Iranian dissident who fled to Germany to escape persecution, said, “The more the mullahs spread hate speech against the Jewish State of Israel, the more Iranian people realize that Israel is our friend, because the regime in Iran is the only enemy that we have. His hate speech against Israel is not surprising…. Ali Khamenei as the leader of the Islamic Republic calls for the annihilation of Israel and Dezhkam is his representative.” Read More…
Opinion: Seems like we have heard this before …
“Then Haman said to King Ahasuerus, “There is a certain people scattered and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of your kingdom; their laws are different from all other people’s, and they do not keep the king’s laws.” Esther 3:8
(The Persian Kingdom of Ahasuerus stretched from India to Ethiopia including Iran, Iraq, Palestine and Lebanon, North African countries such as Egypt and Libya, in addition to territories as far as Eastern Europe including Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia)
“If it pleases the king, let a decree be written that they be destroyed, and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver into the hands of those who do the work, to bring it into the king’s treasuries.” Esther 3:9
The certain people that Haman wanted killed, the Jewish people, is the subject of the Book of Esther set in approx. 340 BC.
“So the king took his signet ring from his hand and gave it to Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the enemy of the Jews.” Esther 3:10
Few people recognize the signs of Haman until it is too late. Haman was an Agagite, a descendant of the king of Amalek whom the prophet Samuel had instructed Israel’s King Saul to destroy.
“This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. 3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.” 1 Sam 15:2-3
King Saul kept the King of Amalek and choice animals as a trophy, and six hundred years later, his descendants assimilated into Persia (Iran).
