Hizbullah's Iranian mission has never been secret.
The recent bloody terrorist riots that Hizbullah inflicted on Lebanon and its peaceful people starting last Wednesday tragically show that Lebanon today is confronting challenges of a magnitude unseen since the end of its civil war in 1990.
That opinion piece prattles on without once mentioning that the Zionists stole the land they're on via terrorist tactics and force of arms.
You know, if militancy and taking other people's land is okay then why should anyone choose the Judaism of the so-called political Zionists or the so called Christian-Zionists of John Hagee over the Islam of Ayatollah Khomeini? Actually, the Islam of the Ayatollah has some things going for it that neither the said "political Zionists" or "Christian-Zionists" have going for them. The Sharia prohibition on Jewish-style usury is actually better.
Also, if you're going to go ahead and be selfish as a male, you may as well agree with having several wives who must keep only unto you or be killed.
Of course, I don't hold with that notion of marriage or with militarism or coercion or usury or even commerce as practiced under Sharia. None of that is good enough.
Still, if I were offered to live only in either Tel Aviv (with its obvious sins on display) or living in Tehran, barring an attack on either by anyone, I should choose Tehran.
Many self-styled Christians might find that shocking and quickly remind me of the religious persecution in Tehran. I would remind them that Christian proselytizing in Tel Aviv will land one in prison.
Frankly, the Iranians allow the Jews in Iran to practice Judaism, because Jews aren't much on proselytizing except for promoting that said political Zionism via neocons about the globe.
Of course, I'd land in prison or dead or both in either case, because I won't not proselytize for the message and exemplary life of Jesus Christ.
