After the US assassination of Qassem Soleimani and his friends, Iran is responding by threatening the US - and Israel.

The former commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, and secretary of the Expediency Council in Iran, Mohsen Rezai, said Sunday in a televised appearance to a gathering of mourners in Iran that Tehran's response to the killing of the commander of the  Qassem Soleimani, would include Haifa and Israeli military centers.

Rezai vowed that Iran would wipe Israel from the face of the earth in case of any American attack.

The Tasnim news agency on Saturday evening quoted Ghulam Ali Abu Hamza, the senior leader of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, as saying that Iran will target 35 vital US targets in the region in addition to Tel Aviv,  saying "the United States and Israel must be in a permanent state of terror after the assassination of the martyr Qassem Soleimani."

I have seen no evidence that Israel had anything to do with Soleimani's assassination. Iranian media has tried to come up with some very tenuous "proof."  Yet it is completely natural for Iran to say that they will retaliate against Israeli civilians in major cities. Not against England, nor Saudi Arabia, nor any other US ally that is an enemy of Iran - only Israel.

This is one of those cases where leftists would argue that this isn't antisemitism, but merely anti-Zionism. But even if you grant that Iran hates Israel and not Jews, there is still no logic behind holding Israel - civilians or military - responsible for American actions.

Either Iran holds that America is Israel's puppet, or Iran's hate for the Jewish state is so visceral that they will use any excuse to attack it.

Either of those responses proves Iran is inherently antisemitic.

Good luck with getting leftist Jewish groups who claim to care so much about antisemitism to admit it. Good luck getting groups with the name "peace" in their titles to condemn Iran over its threats. Because they are on Iran's side against Israel.

The silence of "Jewish Voice for Peace" over direct and unfounded threats  to hundreds of thousands of Jews shows that it isn't for peace, it isn't a voice for peace and it isn't Jewish.



We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
