Iran's Determination to "Go Nuclear" and "Wipe Israel Off the Map"

Smell of Oil and Money Overrides Decency.


The 120-member nations of the Non-aligned Movement (NAM) voted last Thursday to back Iran's nuclear development activities, in spite of the fact that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly vowed to annihilate the State of Israel, referring to the Jewish State as a "malignant growth" and promising to "wipe it off the map."

Israel has expressed its disappointment at Germany's decision to permit a firm to build three gas plants in Iran, saying it contravened the spirit of the UN sanctions aimed at halting Tehran's nuclear program. The 100 million euro ($156 million) deal between the German engineering firm Steiner Prematechnik Gastec and Iran was, according to the government spokesman, "for the export of goods (Gas and Oil) that are not of a controversial nature." (Some concentration camps also produced goods of a non-controversial nature during WW2!)

I [Steven Shamrak] have been publishing my editorial letters about the Arab-Israel conflict since August 2001.

Most people, including many Jews, are driven by emotions and by pre-conceived ideas. Often opinions are formed under the influence of the world media manipulation. Facts and logic are ignored and distorted. Neither Israeli governments nor Jewish leadership have been doing anything about the PR side of the Arab-Israel conflict.

I try to disseminate several points in my letters:

· Israel is the front-line defense in the war between Wahhabism - Islamic expansionism and Western democracies.

· UN anti-Israel bias and double-standard is applied to Israel by the International community.

· Jewish people have the right to live in peace on the all land of their ancestors.

· Israel is the only Jewish state. There are 60 Muslim countries, including 22 Arab ones. They have enough land to accommodate all Arabs.

· Negotiation will not stop terrorism, it only makes it stronger.

Elie Wiesel said:

"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference."

As members of the Western democratic society, we all have an obligation to fight indifference and to protect our way of life – Democracy, Social justice and Freedom of Speech.

The blind bashing of Israel is not a part of a true democracy. It is ugly leftover of the "Old World."
With respect.
