I must say I was quiet disappointed and am now very concerned. It looked to me as if you and your gang have agreed to play the same role Saddam played in creating yet another no win war designed to frustrate Iran’s resources, while helping the rest of the world in mending crippling economies. It appeared to me, Obama’s bosses in Europe have convinced you to initiate a long war, one in which everyone with the exception of the people Iran and Israel shall benefit, even Russia and China,….. I TRUELY HOPE I AM WRONG ON THIS TAKE.
I also noticed you have a difficult time with history of the region and therefore distinguishing between the people of Iran and the nomad Islamist government running the country by way of force these days. You mentioned Jews will soon celebrate Purim, an event in which a Jewish girl named Esther was able to save the Jews from the wrath of the “Anti Semite” Persians! How ignorant and stupid of you Mr. President. First of all Esther was not just a Jewish Girl, she was the Queen of Persia, an empire you call “Anti Semite”, with a Jewish Queen! as well as her uncle serving as head minister in King Xerxes court. But I have a feeling you know all this, you know well how Esther and her parents and a rather significant Jewish population ended up migrating to Persia. Just in case you don’t, Esther parents were just a couple out of tens of thousands of Jewish slaves whom the Anti-Semite!!! king of Persia Cyrus freed from Babylon. Esther parents were amongst many thousands who did not wish to re-settle back around Jerusalem, they chose to live in under the protection of Cyrus, the king who was the first ruler on earth to declare freedom of religion. Benji, as one Persian, I warn you….Iranian people (Persians) are the only friend Israel has ever had in the Middle East, because of our belief system, and certainly not due to any blood-lines which connects you far more with your biggest foes the Arabs. Don’t lose the natural and historical alliance with the Persians.
