Nuclear Power and Israel's Inexplicable
Abuse of Iran
as dangerous as Israeli and Western media would lead one to believe? According
to this history lesson from Iran's state-controlled Kayhan
newspaper, rather than being a threat to the Jewish people, for thousands of
years, Iranians have repeatedly rescued them.
Shah Muhammad Reza Pahlavi, 1919-1980. He dreamed
of a resurgent Persian empire, and according to some
Arab accounts, after a CIA coup put him on the throne, the U.S. removed him for having such a dream.
An article published in Massachusetts,
USA, around 1973 or 1974, depicts an image of the former Shah of Iran in full dress
uniform. The caption reads: “The Shah of Iran is
sitting on top of one of the largest reservoirs of oil in the world. Yet he is
building two nuclear power plants and planning two more ...”
The Shah was toppled in the
popular 1979 Islamic Revolution, and a year later, a puppet Iraqi dictator [Saddam]
was commanded by the West to attack Iran and take over its southern oil fields.
These age-old British
colonial hopes were to be finally realized: After 8,000 years, Iran would be
forced out of existence as a united Middle East powerhouse. But Saddam Hussein
failed as did his masters, who eventually had to put down the rabid dog
mind that we obtained most of his air force, eh!
So elements of Tel Aviv's hue
and cry in regard to Iran’s civilian nuclear assets have existed ever since
plans for the Bushehr nuclear reactor were first put on
the table - and under a pro-Western regime.
A light sprinkle of today's
arguments against Iran’s civilian nuclear program can be seen in the above quote
from Massachusetts; it implies that since Iran is rich in fossil fuels, it
mustn't need to produce nuclear energy. So the start of these
monotonous accusations about a threat posed by Tehran date back at least as far
as the early 1970s.
The first major incident on record involving Iranians and the Jewish
people goes back 2,500 years. This was when “Eranshahr”
- i.e.: the Persian Empire as it has come to be known in the West - was on its
first major foreign incursion under Cyrus the Great [photo,
Eranshar’s army entered Babylon in triumph and set about
dismantling a cruel system based on the enslavement of other tribes, one of
which was the Jews who had been brought back from Judea and forced into slavery. A
highly romanticized version of these events has even been recorded in the [Jewish]
Torah [the story of the Jewish
holiday of Purim as recorded in the Book of Esther].
Babylon’s Jews were freed and escorted back to their land, having been
given back all that had been stolen from them. A universal declaration of human
rights issued about that time has survived the ravages of history and is known today
as the “Cyrus Cylinder"
After Egypt was brought under
Persian rule, other Persian kings went even further. They gave administrative
positions in the running of Egypt to Jewish figures, thereby drawing Egyptian
ire. The enmity continued until Alexander [the Great] of
Macedon arrived with his army around two centuries later and drove the Persians
Alexander [photo, left] wasn't kind to Judea by any stretch of the
imagination and exacted a heavy toll on the territory and its Jewish population
- which is why gleeful accounts of Alexander’s operations against Eranshahr by contemporary Jewish historians have always
Let us leave that timeline
and address another incident, this under the Ottoman rulers of the Turkish Empire some 2,000
years later. Jewish courtiers and tradesmen had attained high positions and
amassed great wealth in an Ottoman Empire that had been at odds with Iran's Safavid
Dynasty for centuries. The special position attained by the Jews within the
Ottoman Empire rapidly came undone and the Jews were brutally persecuted.
With the Jews having
faithfully served an empire opposed to Iran, one might imagine that Iranians
would have en-masse rejected the Jewish Diaspora that was fleeing Ottoman
persecution. But there was none of that waiting for the Jewish refugees seeking
sanctuary in Iran. They were allowed back and got on with their lives.
There's no red carpet
treatment for any denomination in Iran other than the one they weave
themselves. The Iranian embrace is a gentle gesture based on human values. It is
not a bear hug designed to break the cultural spinal cord of ethnic diversity
on its soil.
Let us push forward to the
Second World War and the events in Poland. Once again, Polish Jewish
communities and those from all other Eastern European countries fleeing Nazi
rule found sanctuary in Iran - and many stayed for good. Aside from Israel, Iran
is home to the largest Jewish community in the Middle East.
OFF THE MAP?
Iran is the only nation in
the world that the Jewish version of history hasn't managed to libel. Iran as a
trading nation has neither the time nor the inclination to harbor ill
intentions toward other people. And Iranian compassion is never reserved for
one race, group or ethnicity; compassion forms a central part of our nation's
national character and identity.
Iranians by nature deplore
cruelty and injustice committed in any way shape or form, and since pagan
times, Iran’s long historic record before and after its conversion to Islam
confirms that claim.
Whereas yesteryear it was the
Jewish community that required assistance and sanctuary, things have come full
circle and now it's the Palestinians being tragically driven from their land
and murdered in droves. Just as Eranshahr [the
Persian Empire] once stood against the enslavement of the Jewish community
under the Babylonian mace, Iran continues to stand for those living under
illegitimate, despotic and inhumane foreign occupation.
So, just as cruel and unjust
rulers and domains have faded from the map throughout history because Iran has
moved to assist those under their mace, the same fate will visit today's victims
who have become the instigators of oppression and cruelty.
“Israel will fade from the
map” is a prediction based on Iran’s thousands of years of experience with
those who undertake to uproot and destroy other cultures. It is a prediction
made based on Iranian mysticism: “what goes around comes around.”

However, in the age-old Greek
tradition, this comment [made repeatedly by President Ahmadinidjad] has been mistakenly
translated as “Israel will be wiped off the map,” to a Western political audience
keen on kicking Iran's reputation.
GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE
No matter what the Zionist-sponsored
Western propaganda machine may say about Iran's government, the Islamic
Republic is the result of a mighty popular revolution, and it is the will of
the majority that will direct its future course.
While some of those born
after the event might be busy trying to rewrite history, the generation who
witnessed the affair is fully aware that the Revolution would and could not
have come about without the movement headed by the Islamic Republic's founder,
Ayatollah Khomeini (May he rest in eternal peace).
On matters that concern
national expediency, a government of the people has no choice but to respond to
the popular will - and Iranians aren't about supporting aggression. Rather,
they are united in self-defense. The great majority of people in Iran would
like to see a settlement based on U.N. resolutions that call on Israel to
withdraw from occupied Palestinian territory and allow the formation of an
Iranians don't believe
Palestinians are perfect; in the same way that Iranians don't believe that in
the kingdom of heaven there is a chosen race with special rights [reference to
the Jewish people]. In the kingdom of God, equality, compassion, tolerance and
compromise are principles beyond price.

Quite frankly, the images of
suffering from the pounding of Gaza by the state of the art military of the
Zionists horrified people around the world - and this is a fact that the
Zionist regime will never live down.
So we implore the Jewish
people to try and avert disaster by dumping a theatrical nationalist agenda by
a few among their ranks. A spark is all it will take to send the region up in
flames. The Middle East is fast approaching that critical juncture. Let us hope
that the powers that be are under no illusions about this.
How does a mature person
react when faced with a torrent of abuse from angry adolescents? Most grin and
bear it in the hope that their young counterparts grow out of this
irresponsible phase of development.
Over the last thirty years, Iranians
have suffered the worst indignities at the hands of the Israeli-inspired media.
Given all the support throughout history that Iranians have provided Jewish
communities, the claims of the Zionist entity about Iranian plans to annihilate
it closely resemble the noises that clowns make to entertain people at the
Lashing out at Iranians and
libeling their history, culture and politics will not assist the child-killers of
Tel Aviv, since they don't represent the majority view of the Jewish people.
The mocking of Iranians by people whose ancestors Iran helped survive will not
Iran can only hope that
Israel reaches the level of maturity required to reject racist concepts of a
purely Jewish state. The last world war took place to defeat such
self-promoting and illogical deviations in human thought. And a Black President
in the White House stands for just what can be achieved should a sense of group
identity not be confined to race, creed or color.
