"Issues of World War III" Survey

"Should we support Iranian opposition groups to help them overthrow the Iranian regime?" In contrast to our last issue, readers were divided right down the middle on this question. Half the opinions favored assisting the Iranian opposition, while the other half completely opposed doing so. The additional comments were few and didn't add much, aside from indicating that readers are united against the Iranian regime (not surprising for a Hasidic Jewish newsletter, of course), but that many also didn't trust the opposition groups.

Just who is that opposition? That's the crux of the issue.

Factual Background:
Since last year, the George Bush Administration has been disbursing $75 million to dissidents and opposition groups exiled from Iran, with the aim of bolstering opposition movements inside Iran. But since 2001, the president has also been gradually building warmer relations with the Iranian regime, culminating during the last two months in a series of meetings between high-level U.S. and Iranian officials. (And since the 1990s, Dick Cheney, now vice president, has advocated removing sanctions against Iran.) That's a blatant continuation of Clinton Administration policy, which sought to establish normal relations with the Tehran regime and open up channels for economic trade and assistance. So there's no question Bush isn't planning to overthrow the regime.

That should raise suspicions as to just how genuine the "opposition" really is. Already for a number of years, an open network of non-religious groups, including labor unions, student groups, newspapers, and political parties, has been allowed, even encouraged, by the regime to flourish. Protests have been conducted with little or no action by authorities; "dissenting" views are published, often unhindered; and dissidents are often allowed to fill top offices. Given the all-pervasive control of the secret police (supervised and run by the Soviet Russian KGB), it's readily apparent that the opposition movement must be heavily penetrated by police agents and informants.

For that matter, the movement is run by the regime, too. Various opposition organizations, such as the Islamic Iran Participation Front and the Islamic Student Association, are openly supported by top leaders of the regime, including some of the most notorious terrorists of the 1979 revolution. Ibrahim Yazdi, a top opposition leader, was himself a major figure in the Marxist, Soviet-supported elements of the original revolution, and was a close ally of Khomenei; his Freedom Movement, which participated in the 1979 revolution with Soviet support, has been allowed to exist to the present day and now leads the "opposition." The same can be said of many other opposition figures.

Unsurprisingly, then, the "opposition" is plainly Marxist in ideology, advocates "reform" rather than overthrow of the regime, and vociferously blocks any U.S. intervention that might risk bringing down the Tehran dictatorship.

The exiled opposition isn't any different. Opposition groups based in the U.S. and Europe are composed heavily of well-organized members of the 1979 revolution who originally participated in the Iranian regime. The most openly Communist elements of the revolution, such as the Tudeh Party (Iran's Communist Party), the Fedayin-e-Khalq, and the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), left the regime in the early 1980s when the Soviets decided to create a non-Communist image of Iran. Those are the very groups now influencing or leading the exiled opposition; the MEK, in particular, has received military aid from the Iraqi Communist regime of Saddam Hussein, and many American politicians have lobbied to provide U.S. aid as well. And Soviet-backed revolutionaries who helped install the current regime can be found populating the U.S.-based National Front movement, which parades its Marxism fairly openly.

The wife and son of the former Shah of Iran are trying to rally Iranians behind a possible restoration of the monarchy, but their movement is small and probably heavily infiltrated by Communists and agents of Iranian intelligence. The Shah's son and heir to the throne, moreover, studied political science in an American university, a subject typically dominated by Marxist professors, and spent time in Communist Egypt. Thus his own reliability is in doubt, and in any case he could never hope to change the regime without completely overthrowing it and executing literally millions of agents and collaborators with the government.

Relevant Torah Principles:
1) Various Torah sources explain that the evil nation of Amalek employs trickery and deception to confuse opponents. Ambushes and traps form a major part of Amaleki tactics. Such methods can reduce even the mightiest of opponents to helpless victims, even though Amaleki forces are always militarily weak and could be easily defeated on the open battlefield.

2) Amaleki disguises and traps are designed to lure an opponent into a no-win situation, where every option brings defeat. The object is to create a sense of futility and despair, of defeatism, that allows Amalek to win through psychological warfare rather than physical conquest. Consequently, one cannot break out of the trap without rejecting all available options and rewriting the rules of the war from scratch.

3) When the Jews were attacked by Amaleki forces disguised as "Canaanites" (Numbers 21:1-3) and couldn't be sure which enemy they were confronting, they promised G-d not to keep any of the spoils of victory, but rather to exterminate the enemy entirely, along with their possessions. In the merit of this promise, G-d delivered the Jews out of the Amaleki trap and gave them victory. In order to receive G-d's blessing for victory over Amaleki forces, we must commit ourselves not just to victory, but to total, merciless annihilation of the enemy. This principle applies only to war against Amalek, an enemy that will not rest even in defeat.

The first priority of Communists everywhere in the world is to infiltrate and neutralize their opposition, to ensure nothing can get out of control and destroy them. Thus it is never possible to change Communist regimes through internal opposition forces, and certainly not through reform or partial measures. Total, overwhelming force must be employed to overthrow the regime, and victory must be followed through with an immediate, wholesale slaughter of every former member of the Communist apparatus, right down to the lowest informants and secretaries. Any show of mercy will only open the door to a return of the Communists and their bloody revolution.

Iran has been playing the "reform" deception with the U.S. for over two decades. In the 1980s, a phony "moderate" faction of the government tricked American officials into supplying advanced weapons to the Iranian military; in the 1990s, another "moderate" faction nearly manipulated the U.S. into extending full diplomatic relations with the regime; and now since 2000, a phony "democratic" movement is being positioned for an internally generated "regime change," much like the fake changes in Soviet Russia, to lure the U.S. into recognizing and aiding the Tehran government. But such aid would only be used to fuel more Communist revolution and terrorism throughout the Middle East.

Sooner or later, there will be an all-out war with the Communist Bloc that will finally destroy their regimes and exterminate hundreds of millions of their members. In our current generation, Moshiach (the Messiah) will ultimately lead the Jewish people in the final war to exterminate every last trace of Amalek and its collaborators, the prerequisite to rebuilding the Jerusalem Temple. But we can already achieve much of that victory with minimal hardship now, by fighting for total and immediate victory rather than falling into traps of bogus "opposition" and "democracy" movements around the world.

Subversion Alert

This week:
Interfaith Subversion Update, Part 9 — update on Shlomo Amar

We thought this would be the last installment of our interfaith mini-series, but since our last issue, Israeli Chief Sephardic Rabbi Shlomo Amar managed to take his treason against Judaism to new lows. Not only is he still actively engaging in forbidden interfaith dialogue and legitimizing terrorists, he's wrapping the whole evil in a mantle of religious piety.

Last week, Amar announced that Israel is morally obligated to intervene in Gaza affairs — to save PLO terrorists! He called on Israel to take measures to stop the (non-existent) fighting between the PLO and Hamas. But since Amar doesn't advocate sending the military into the Gaza Strip to crush both groups — indeed, he even spoke out against sending in troops merely to stop Kassam missile launchings — he was implicitly endorsing the treasonous policy of the Ehud Olmert government, which actively seeks to finance, arm, and surrender to the PLO.

That's nothing new for Amar. He's long been an outspoken advocate of surrendering vital territory to the PLO, precisely the strategic areas the Communist Bloc needs as a staging area for the future invasion of Israel (i.e., the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and Golan Heights). But rather than admitting he's betraying Jewish lives as well as the Jewish religion, Amar actually justifies the surrender as being a religious principle of Torah, for the sake of saving lives (by appeasing Israel's enemies)!

As if that Orwellian inversion of reality weren't enough, Amar couched his new support for the PLO as, of all things, a fulfillment of the Torah obligation to teach the Seven Noahide Laws to all gentiles. And he cynically used the name of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, as justification, since the Rebbe so passionately advocated the Noahide campaign (the main purpose of this JAHG-USA newsletter).

It goes without saying that the Rebbe never intended the Noahide Laws campaign to be twisted into a sick excuse for promoting Communist revolution. The Noahide Laws are aimed at bringing gentiles out of false religions to become Hasidic Gentiles, not to support genocide against Jews and Arabs by the Communist PLO and its Soviet Russian sponsor. If anything, the obligations of Jews toward gentiles include sending Israeli troops into the Gaza and West Bank to annihilate the PLO and re-liberate those lands as part of Israel, thereby saving palestinian Arabs from mass murder and opening the door for their conversion to the Noahide Laws.

Of course, Amar also twists the Noahide Laws into the very opposite of their intent through ecumenical dialogue — which is to say, gradually merging Judaism with other religions rather than bringing the world to Torah values. Thus Amar is now working on interfaith projects with Israeli government minister Ghaleb Majadle and other Arab "Muslim leaders." Majadle is a top member of Israel's Labor Party, an affiliate of the Soviet-controlled Socialist International, and he participates in meetings with Communist Parties from around the world; Majadle has likewise worked closely with the Israeli Communist Party (now renamed "Hadash") in promoting Israel's surrender to the PLO. And the other "Muslim leaders" Amar favors are, by definition, those who support the PLO. So not only does "Rabbi" Amar promote Moscow's objective of Jewish-Muslim ecumenism, he does so in support of the Communist political agenda. And all in the name of Torah.

No matter how you look at it, Amar is clearly a conscious, dedicated agent of the Communist conspiracy. If orthodox rabbis had any real spine, they'd strip Amar of his rabbinical ordination, put him under a ban of excommunication from the Jewish people, and actively oppose all his Marxist and interfaith subversion.

Alas, these are not days of moral backbone.

To be continued…

(Note: The underground Communist apparatus and its aboveground tentacles are actively engaged in subversion in all sectors and institutions of society today. Its agents would dearly love to know the full extent of our information, which would assist their disinformation efforts. Consequently, we do not divulge all our facts or sources. These profiles are intended only as a warning to the wise to monitor the individuals and groups exposed here, and to avoid their influence.)

Eye-Openers in the News

A closer look at news reports in recent weeks turns up some revealing gems:

We need more volunteers to approach nervous, spineless "refusenik" rabbis to ask them why they refused, and to lobby them to change their mind. With even just a little pressure, we can quickly turn many of them to endorse the PLO-defunding campaign. Let us know that you're ready to help by visiting our volunteer page at http://www.attacreport.com/plo/volunteer.php.

Letters to the Editor

(In response to the article on women as political leaders in our June 10th issue):
"…[You wrote] regarding women never being in [political] office, but you failed to mention your previous comments on women leading temporarily…" [i.e., today women may have to lead anyway]. — JA.

Our response: In our last issue, we did mention that, while the Torah is very much against women serving as political or judicial leaders, there are times that the Torah does allow some limited and temporary female leadership. But that's only during a crisis in which there aren't any men willing to be men, and so a strong woman may have no choice but to step forward to save the day.

On the other hand, Midrashic Torah sources inform us that the Jews were redeemed from slavery in Egypt in the merit of the women, who steadfastly maintained their loyalty to Jewish customs and population growth. Torah tradition likewise tells us that the Messianic redeemer will come in the merit of the Jewish women.

How does that translate into practice today, when we find ourselves in the midst of total, global war with international Communism, the modern manifestation of Amaleki revolution? How can women today show leadership while still adhering to the letter and spirit of the Torah?

It isn't necessary for women to step forward and replace men as leaders today, nor would that even be helpful. Women simply aren't the best leaders for combat. Even Deborah, the prophetess who was forced to lead the Jewish people in a time lacking in manliness, sent Barak ben Avinoam (a man) to lead the soldiers into battle against the Canaanites. Barak and all other men of the generation were too weak to lead overall, but military combat just doesn't work with women.

Rather, women's leadership today must come from below, by pushing their men — their husbands and sons — to perform their duties in fighting Communism, defunding the PLO, and proselytizing gentiles to drop false religions and become Hasidic Gentiles. Moshiach (the Messiah) will come because women will force their men to act like men, rather than trying to replace them.
