Iran's Day of Terror?
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has frustrated Western officials by refusing to reply to their offer of various incentives in exchange for IranÂ’s discarding its nuclear program until August 22. The Western governments had asked Ahmadinejad to reply by June 29; why would Tehran need two extra months?
Farid Ghadry, the president of the Reform Party of Syria, has offered a provocative explanation for this delay. He asserts that the Supreme National Security Council of Iran chose the August 22 date Â“for a very precise reason. August 21, 2006 (Rajab 27, 1427) is known in the Islamic calendar as the Night of the SiraÂ’a and MiiraÂ’aj, the night Prophet Mohammed (saas) ascended to heaven from the Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem on a Bourak (Half animal, half man), while a great light lit-up the night sky, and visited Heaven and Hell also Beit al-Saada and Beit al-Shaqaa (House of Happiness and House of Misery) and then descended back to Mecca.Â…Â”
So..is little hitler planning a recreation of the night the sky lit up over Jerusalem?
Certainly a nuclear attack on Jerusalem or even an all-out conventional assault against Israel by Iran would be consistent with AhmadinejadÂ’s oft-repeated denials of IsraelÂ’s right to exist and recent predictions that its demise was at hand. He hinted at the use of nuclear weapons in his phrasing when he said that Israel Â“pushed the button of its own destructionÂ” by finally retaliating against HizballahÂ’s relentless rocket barrage from south Lebanon.
Something tells me that little hitler is more froth than substance. I suspect come daybreak, August 23rd, Jerusalem will still be in the hands of it's rightful owners - the Israelis. Who would bet against that prophecy?
