Throughout the history of the world, there have beenfigures whose very name sent fear and tremors through the very soul of mankind.
The ancient world was full of them: Og King of theBashan; the Canaanite General Sisera, Nebuchadnezzar, Nero, Caligula. The past many centuries have had their own maniacs - Attilathe Hun, Ivan the Terrible, Chelminiki, Mussolini, Stalin, Dracula, Hitler, yemach shemam.
Ruthless, vengeful, cruel, and bloodthirsty individuals,they were responsible for destruction and murder beyond our ability to fathom.
Today one dastardly name stands out above all others. Ahmadinejad,the president of
Iran,who remains with his "finger on the bomb". His hatred of the Jewish people and theState of Israel is vitrolic and unparalleled in modern times.
Ahmadinejad learned from the best!! – another Persian,perhaps his great great great great grandfather, the diabolical Haman.
Haman, second to King Achashverosh of
Persia, laid outthe original plan for Ahmadinejad – chas v’shalom - wipe the Jewish people offthe face of the earth.
The Jews of Persia were saved long ago through prayer andunity – thanks to the leadership of Queen Esther and her cousin Mordechai theJew.
We too can be safe from the evils threatened from theNorth, if we strengthen ourselves in prayer, in Torah and devotion to ourbrethren.
Beware, Ahmadinejad, your plans will come to naught,IY”H.
Remember...Haman was hung on the same gallows he prepared forMordechai. G-d protects His nation.
