Does Iran REALLY Want to Kill the Jews?

This is the subject line of a post put up yesterday by friend Greg over at ALOTTATALK. I often wonder about Iran and just how serious they are about taking on another nation in a direct confrontation. Here’s the bulk of Greg’s post, which I invite the reader to respond to hither and thither (Login required for response):

One of the biggest unknowns about the Iranian quest for a nuclear weapon is the question, “Would they actually use it?”.   Many, if not most people, think they wouldn’t since it would likely be suicidal.  Any nuclear attack on Israel would provoke a large retaliation by Israel  (Israel does not officially admit to possessing nuclear weapons, but it is widely believed they do).

However, the Iranians have made their hate for Israel well, known, and there is a new story saying the top Ayatollah is calling for the killing of Jews and the annihilation of Israel.

From the story:
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 peoplbe worldwide.

All of this is coming to a head, as Israel may be planning attacks on Iranian nuclear facilities, and the US is imposing new sanctions on Iran.

Is this crazy talk just bluster to help prevent an Israeli attack?  Or, are the Iranian leaders really set on killing Jews and destroying Israel?

As much as I’d like to think of this is as bluster and blow on Iran’s part, a part of me believes that we had better not ignore the proclamations, the military exercises, or discount Iran’s stated future intent. Israel is at risk. Period. The Bible gives us prophecy after prophecy about the Middle East (Arab world) rising up to attack Israel, even to the point of annihilation. The inevitable end is that Israel will, literally, have its back against the wall in a confrontation with the Arab world. While not an Arab nation, Iran (Persia) has made it clear for a long time that decimation and removal of Israel from the planet would be cause for celebration throughout Persia.

As far as a nuclear Iran goes, I’m most concerned with what they’ll do with their nukes, the majority of which I believe would initially be aimed at western Europe. My opinion is that Iran would love to strike a first blow at the Jews and western world in Germany, which would be to strike a blow at Israel while avoiding a direct military confrontation. The idea may seem ironic, unafraid of the world but terrified of Israel, but given Iran’s recent actions globally I find some credence in the notion. As far back as the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Teheran to the more recent overt support of Al Qaeda forces in Iraq, as well as active involvement in the North Korean ballistic missile and nuclear technology exchange, Iran has positioned itself as an aggressor force willing to do whatsoever it pleases. When was the last time any nation stepped up and punched Iran in the nose?

Iran knows the time is not right for an open fight with the U. S. or Israel, and so will bide its time until becoming more aligned with the Arab world. Perhaps, and I’ll just throw this out there, that is the intent behind the Arab Spring. To foment an Arab rising, while laying groundwork for something more insidious. By and large, how do the Muslims behave within any country? Do they co-exist peacefully with any other people? Look at the Muslim driven Turkish invasion of Hungary. Look at Egypt a year down the road. Look at Libya. Look at Syria. Look at the Sudan, and now Nigeria. Half a dozen simple, quite stark, examples of nations where there was a modicum, if not somewhat dismal example, of ‘peace’. All ultimately redirected for a fundamental transformation…which, where have we heard that before?

What the Arab Spring has done is bring anything but peace or unification to any of the affected nations. Rather, we see a Muslim uprising of bloodshed and violence found in various parts of the world; again, use the Sudan as an example. One cannot help but wonder if Iran’s Mullahs are hoping for the chance to somehow unite a violent Muslim front against their sworn enemies. How could the Mullahs pass up an opportunity to bring in the Muslim world as useful idiots, engaging them in a cause they believe is their righteous destiny. It wouldn’t be the first time the Persians have pulled off such a stunt. I suppose time will tell if I’m right.

It requires neither a genius nor a prophet to know what a nuclear Iran is going to look like. The Persian mindset today is not so different from that of when Darius faced Alexander. Only, where shall we find Alexander in today’s world? However any of this plays out, there will never again be peace in the Middle East. Ever an elusive creature throughout the region since the beginning of time, peace in the Middle East is, in my opinion, a creature now extinct.

    I think they really do. As a gentile who gets mildly annoyed at Jews, qua Jews, from time to time, the meanest statement I’ve ever been able to come up with in an anti-Semitic way is, “Aw, c’mon, cut that out, yer patrimony is showing.”

    Those guys really do want to kill ’em all, I think.

    I am much more concerned with Iran giving it’s nukes to folks like Hamas or Hezbollah or some other terrorist group to smuggle somewhere and detonate. THAT is what is keeping me up at night.
