Rarely do I create an article from one line or one quote from a story or article. However, today I find myself compelled to do so. This quote is from an editorial from Investors Business Daily in late October or early November 2007. It came from the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader: “In a dozen years,” he’s quoted by Adnkronos International, “Europe will be an Islamic continent.” My question to the western world, and more importantly to the countries of the European continent is this; what part of this statement does not scare the bejesus out of you? When the ” spiritial ” leader of a terrorist nation makes a proclamation like that, it should raise every red flag you can think of! Think about it, these people, have been a thorn in the side of America and the rest of the world for the last 30 years. It started in the late 70’s with the Iran Hostage Crisis. In case you’ve forgotten, ( and we should never forget what they did ); On November 4, 1979, Iranian students stormed the United States Embassy and took a total of 66 people hostage. 52 of those people were Americans. They held these Americans for 444 days, the release date was January 20, 1981. The day Ronald Reagan was sworn in as President of the United States. That my friends, is the tip of the iceberg.
Over the last 30 years, Iran has evolved into the leader of anti-American sentiment world-wide. Iran has also become the world leader in aiding and abedding international terrorist groups such as al-queda, hezballah and hamas. Al-Queda, headed by Osama bin Laden is responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. that took the lives of nearly 3000 people. Hamas and Hezballah are sworn enemies of Israel, America’s closest ally in the Middle East.
In late March of 2007, , Iran kidnapped fifteen members of the British Navy in waters off the coast of Iran. Iran claimed these waters to be theirs and “arrested” the Brits claiming they violated Iranian waters. The British claim the sailors were in Iragi waters. In a surprise turn of events , the terrorist leader of Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad “pardoned” the fifteen sailors and sent them home.
Iran has also developed a nuclear weapons program. Thats right, the Israel and America hating fanatics are developing nuclear weapons. With the assistance of God knows who. Think about this for a minute. Europe becomes an Islamic continent by the year 2020. That puts Islamic fanatics, not to mention terrorists, an ocean away from America’s mainland! OUR HOME! With the development of computer guidance systems technology, and the willingness of America’s enemies to sell such technological advances to our enemies, America is in direct peril from an organized and well armed attack from Islamic Jihadists bent on destroying our way of life, if not the very existance of America! Not exactly a rosy thought is it?
The bottom line is, America must do whatever is necessary to protect itself and the rest of the world from Iran’s aggression. We must convince our allies throughout the world to join us in this struggle. We must convince them to stand tall against those who would suppress basic fundamental rights, such as free speech and freedom of religion. The very words of the Ayatollah strongly suggest a jihad against christianity. Can you live with that? I can’t!
