Netanyahu's Purim Plan
Mar 06, 2012
US President Barack Obama reportedly on Monday gave Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu a copy of the Book of Esther in honor of the Jewish holiday of Purim, which is celebrated on Thursday and Friday this week.
Netanyahu took the opportunity to draw a parallel between the narrative in the Book of Esther – wherein the wicked Haman seeks to destroy the Jewish people throughout the Persian Empire – with Israel's modern day conflict with Iran....
Iran is geographically Persia and the Iranians are descendants of the ancient Persians.
It seems that Netanyahu failed to mention the fact that the Persians were on the side of the Judahites. Their enemy was an Amalekite, who tricked the king of Persia into signing the decree. When the Persian king discovered Haman's real motive, he issued a second decree allowing Judah to defend itself.
Why punish the Persians for this? The real culprits are the Amalekites. Guess who they are today?
This article shows us that Netanyahu really wants to attack Iran during Purim. They already succeeded in getting America to attack old Babylon (Iraq) at Purim in 2003. Now Iran (Persia) is next. Then it will be Greece. Then Rome, which they identify as the Church. Perhaps it would be better to stop their plan of vengeance now, rather than wait for them to destroy the Church.
