Jerusalem Online: Iran’s strategy is to wipe “the Zionist regime” of Israel off the political map, Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps second-in-command Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami said, in a television address on Monday.
“We announce that if Israel takes any action to wage a war against us, it will definitely lead to its own elimination and freeing of occupied territories,” Salami said, according to Reuters.
“Iran’s strategy is to remove the Zionist regime from the political map, and the Israelis contribute to this by their criminal activities,” he added. more …
Opinion: Behold Haman.
In a March 11, 2017 speech, Ayatollah Khamenei called Israel a “cancerous tumor” which should be “cured” in phases.
According to him, these phases include violent intifadas and terror attacks “until the complete liberation of Palestine.”
Jewish sources stress that in every generation, Amalek rises to destroy the Jewish people and each time, he clothes himself in a different nation. In our times, the new Haman is the Iranian regime residing in Iran, ancient Persia.
The Jewish sources are found in Exodus 17:16; Deuteronomy 25:17:
Moses prophesied that Amalek would attack God’s people in every generation, so he instructed the people to pray against Amalek, a practice that religious Jews do today on the feast of Purim to commemorate when the Jews of Persia preempted an attack and defeated the mighty Persian army.
In the Six Day War of 1967, the Israeli army borrowed from that victory (detailed in the book of Esther 9:1-10) and defeated Egypt, Syria, and Jordan, in a victory that shocked the world.
There are few Jewish scholars today that would dispute the presence of an Amalek in the generations. An October 28, 2017 Op-Ed, the day after the slaughter of 11 Jewish people in a US synagogue, the Wall Street Journal post titled “Amalek Comes to Pittsburgh” by a Jewish writer, confirms that most Jews know who their eternal enemy is.
But most stop short of making an actual bloodline connection.
In our first book Antichrist: The Search For Amalek we followed the movement of the bloodline of Amalek, illegitimate grandson of Esau, to Persia, modern day Iran.
Haman’s lineage is found in the Targum Sheni (Aramaic translation and embellishment of the book of Esther).
Excerpt: “Haman was an Agagite, a descendant of Agag, king of Amalek. An Agagite is an Amalekite, and Amalek was a descendant of Esau. Haman’s lineage is given in the Targum Sheni as follows: “Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, son of Srach, son of Buza, son of Iphlotas, son of Dyosef, son of Dyosim, son of Prome, son of Ma’dei, son of Bla’akan, son of Intimrom, son of Harirom, son of Sh’gar, son of Nigar, son of Farmashta, son of Vayezatha, son of Agag, son of Sumki, son of Amalek, son of the concubine of Eliphaz, firstborn son of Esau.”
In our ebook “Blood Feud”, chapter 6 has a map to show the migration of Amalek’s blood to Persia, modern day Iran (here).
