Iranian Hatred: ‘The Most Virulent Form Of State-Sponsored Anti-Semitism Since Nazi Germany’
INN – “Columnist Colbert King issued a strong warning against Iranian anti-Semitism this week in a column for the Washington Post. King, a Pulitzer prize-winning columnist, termed Iranian hatred ‘the most virulent form of state-sponsored anti-Semitism since Nazi Germany.’
Iran ‘is more than a threat to a piece of geography called Israel,’ he said. It is ‘the greatest threat to Jews to emerge in the past 70 years.’
King quoted multiple statements from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accusing ‘Zionists’ of ‘ruling the major world affairs’ to support his argument that ‘the Iranian government is as anti-Semitic as the Third Reich.’ He also noted Iranian Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi’s claims that ‘Zionists’ and the Talmud are behind the global drug trade.
The focus must not be solely on Iran’s nuclear program, he argued, but on the regime’s threat to Jews worldwide. ‘The fingerprints of Iran were found in attacks on Jews in Bulgaria, India, Thailand and Georgia,’ he stated. ‘Contending that Iran’s threat is mainly to Israel is to ignore reality, unpleasant and challenging though it may be.’
King challenged the international community to stand up against Iranian leaders’ overt anti-Semitism. ‘It is almost beyond belief that the rest of the world would hear such an outrage and look the other way,’ he argued.
Ahmadinejad recently called for Israel’s destruction again, telling ambassadors from Islamic countries that the ‘annihilation of the Zionist regime‘ would be the ‘key to solving the world problems.’ He also accused United States presidential candidates of ‘kissing the feet of the Zionist.’” Source – INN.

Flashback: Iran Ayatollah: Kill All Jews Worldwide, Annihilate Israel – “The Iranian government, through a website proxy, has laid out the legal and religious justification for the destruction of Israel and the slaughter of its people. The doctrine includes wiping out Israeli assets and Jewish people worldwide. Calling Israel a danger to Islam, the conservative website Alef, with ties to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said the opportunity must not be lost to remove ‘this corrupting material. It is a ‘jurisprudential justification’ to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel, and in that, the Islamic government of Iran must take the helm.’” Read more.
