It is time to indict Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on trial for incitement to commit genocide. According to Webster’s definition, genocide is “the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group.” Such action on the part of Western leaders might well prevent the murderous dictator from subjecting the world to a cataclysmic nuclear event.
The following steps also need to be taken immediately: Close the Iranian mission in New York City; cancel all Iranian diplomatic visas to the United States; ask credit card companies such as Visa, Mastercard, American Express, etc., to cancel credit cards issued to Iranian diplomats; disclose all U.S. corporations doing business with Iran, even those doing business through third-party corporations.
Following his call for the annihilation of Israel, Ahmadinejad gave the go-ahead to Hezbollah to launch some 4,000 missiles into Israel in an attempt to kill as many Israelis as possible. His plan was foiled only by the fact that bomb shelters are required in homes in Israel.
We cannot sit idly by and allow Ahmadinejad to gain the means to his determined end – to wipe Israel off the map. The world did that with Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Had the League of Nations (the precursor to the United Nations) taken action against Hitler when he published “Mein Kampf," it is possible that the world would have been spared the Holocaust and the deaths of World War II.
The lack of opposition from the world as a whole only fueled Hitler’s desire to eliminate the Jewish population from Europe through monstrous acts of persecution. He interpreted the lethargic response to his master plan as indifference, and indeed, it was.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has embarked on a plan to become the all-powerful leader of the Islamic world. He has already begun to court the non-aligned nations, and in fact, has visited both Cuba and Venezuela in recent weeks. (His inflammatory speech at the U.N. last week was followed by the incendiary histrionics of his ally, Hugo Chavez. Chavez referred to President Bush as “the devil…a liar…a drunk.”) But this is only the first step in his own master plan to eliminate Israel and to humiliate America and render it powerless to interfere. In Ahmadinejad’s hunger to emerge as all-victorious against the West, he resembles the maniacal Adolf Hitler more and more.
Click here to ask President Bush to close the Iranian mission in New York City, introduce economic sanctions against the rich mullahs of Iran, and lead an international tribunal to indict President Ahmadinejad for violations of the Geneva Convention by calling for the destruction of the State of Israel, for killing Americans (troops) in Iraq and Jews in Israel through proxies. I also ask you to join those asking for Iran to be removed from the U.N.
All of my life I’ve heard that those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. It appears to me that we are well on our way to seeing history repeat itself in the form of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad if we don’t take a stand against his blatant aggression here and now. Hitler was determined to exterminate the Jews; Ahmadinejad’s vision is a world without Zionism (Jews) and America (which to him represents Christianity.)
It is certain that this world cannot tolerate another Hitler; it is equally certain that it cannot tolerate another Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s appeasement policies toward a nation that is bent only on destruction. Having dismissed Ahmadinejad’s threats as just the ranting of a madman, have we already adopted Chamberlain’s attitude of appeasement?
It is time that we recognized and admitted the truth that such totalitarian regimes as that of Ahmadinejad do not operate according to the same moral code as does America. His threats against Israel and America are directly linked to his fanatical religious beliefs surrounding the return of the Twelfth Mahdi, who can only appear as the result of a cataclysmic event – possibly a nuclear attack designed to achieve his vision of a world without Zionism and America.
The nations of the world that value freedom and democracy would be well-advised to deal with Ahmadinejad and his radical beliefs now…before he has achieved his aspirations to possess nuclear arms.
Please ask President Bush today to lead an international tribunal to indict Ahmadinejad for crimes of genocide.
Ahmadinejad has said: “Israel’s existence is the central obstacle that faces the Islamic nation.” He further made his point by sanctioning a parade of missiles boldly labeled: Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
If Iran obtains a nuclear device, it will be too late for America, Israel, for our troops in Iraq, and for the world.
