    It reads like he's Obama Middle East adviser. Amazing.

    Nothing about how Iran is supplying IED to the Iraqi Insurgents and killing US soldiers. Nothing about how Iranian proxies tried to grab Basra.

    It's like Jimmy Carter all over again.

    Forgot to mention that Iran has the largest Jewish population in the middle east outside of Israel.

    The Iranian Jews where offered cash and various incentives to immigrate to Israel.

    Almost everyone refused the offer, stating that they were perfectly happy and safe living in Iran.

    Iran even has jews who are repesentaves in their parliment, and are specificly protected by the Iranian constitution.

    Yeah, Iran's support of terrorist organizations is disturbing. However, most countries, including the US, have a long and rich history of doing the same. ;)

    Oh yeah. Forgot to mention these little facts I guess:
    Jewish population 1948:100,000
    Jewish population 2004: 25,000
    It's the largest outside Israel because all the other Arab states killed off or drove off their own populations. That includes Iraq. Yemen seems to be only place still friendly. And Morocco, although it's the other side of Africa.

    Rabbi, most people aren't aware that Israel bribed the bulk of jews in other middle east countries with money and free houses if they would come to Israel.

    Then later, Israel issued false propagada, saying that the Jews had been driven out of their countries and had fled to Israel for safety.
