Another Source of Convergence

The important news of the day involves the "Haman" of the day, may his name be blotted out forever, in all its incarnations!

Ahmadinejad's unbridled attack on Israel causes foreboding. Ashkenazi sees "tough ordeal" possible soon

... increasingly belligerent statements issuing from top Iranian leaders since the death of Imad Mughniyeh in Damascus earlier this month are seen as betokening serious intent.

...Sunday, Gen. Hassan Firouz-Abadi, commander-in-chief of all Iran’s armed forces, said at a ceremony in memory of Imad Mughniyeh: “Many millions across the world will soon receive the joyous news of the Zionist entity’s destruction.”’ He did not explain how Iran intended to perform this objective, but alluded indirectly to nuclear or radioactive measures.

...in Washington and Jerusalem, these unbridled speeches are taken as an orchestrated campaign to raise Middle East temperatures up to the climax of an Iranian attack on Israel.
It is noted that Ahmadinejad’s speech was delivered on the last day of the Islamic month of Haram, during which Muslims are prohibited from embarking on attacks. The month of Safar when it is permitted to strike enemies of Islam begins Thursday, Feb. 21.
[Edit: It has been noted in the comments that Debka is in error here, but there is a good explanation if you read further to rosalie and david's comments. The month of Safar began, like Adar Alef, with the new moon, but it is davka the middle of the month that is specified, not the beginning.]
Earlier in the week, I brought a post about the convergence of Purim Katan, a total eclipse of the moon and the threat of an imminent attack in reprisal for the elimination of the Master Terrorist. Now it turns out that this is the first day Iran can initiate an attack and if that weren't already enough, now the US has chosen this 24-hr period for it's attempted shoot-down of a failing satellite.

  1. Muslims Against Sharia congratulate the organization responsible for elimination of terrorist Imad Mugniyeh on a job well done!


  2. The month of Safar started two weeks ago. Also in Islam months start with the new Moon.

  3. Thank you for pointing that out Moshe. So much for Debkafile.

  4. And to the Islamic Reform Movement all I can say is "l'chaim."

  5. I think the first of Safar is designated not to make war after a peace treaty Muhammed had with the pagan arabs at that time and the second half of Safar is designated for resumption of war. Sometimes Debka starts out in Hebrew and is translated to English, so you have to take that into account.:)

    Shias celebrate 40 days. Iranians are Shias. That would put it at Feb 20th if my math isn't off. Safar began on the eighth. The first day after the 40 days is the 19th. They like us probably mark periods by at the mid point and beginning of the month placing the beginning today. I'll research more to confirm, But as you can see Debka isn't really that wrong ( as I said someone didn't edit it right.)

  7. I hate to flood the comments with more of the same. Debka File is pretty close to being correct. The Iranian President spoke about destroying Israel on Monday which was the end of the period of not starting wars (40days after the start of the previous month). The next day was the 19th a tuesday, which would have started the period. The Iranian president gave another speech on wednesday (yesterday)and I think that is where the confusion lies. Maybe one of us should write them to edit the article again.

  8. "I hate to flood the comments with more of the same."

    Not at all. I really appreciate your taking the time to set the record straight. Accuracy in information and Truth go hand in hand.

    Many thanks, Rosalie and David.
