Even though the Iranians are a minority Islam fraction, and they are Aryans, not Arabs, the Iranian are attempting to take de Facto control of the Muslim world. Ahmadinejad and his cronies realize that in order to control the Arabs, who like the Jews are Semites, and like the Jews are preferred by Allah anf Jehova over the Aryans, they must move quickly. Time is not on ther dide of Iran. In spite, or perhaos because of its threat to acquire nuclear weapons, Arab nations, wo are mostly Sunnis, will soon wake up and realize that Israel. the Jews, and their common God, will prevail over the Persians and their Ayatollahs.
The purpose the Iranian instigation of the December 2008 Gaza conflict was demonstrated by two missiles reached Be’er Sheva, Asdodwas also reached. Is this conflict that is getting world wide attention, a demonstration by Ahamadinejad and his cronies that Hammas is getting better equipped and its rockets may soon reach Tel-Aviv?
Not unlike the second Lebanese war in 2006, the Islamic terrorists directed and funded by the NON-Arab Persian Aryan Shiites, understand that Israel has a number of “triggers.” that will make it react; notably capturing its soldiers, or sending hundreds of rockets into civilian centers. Triggering Israel, the Iranian and their terrorist clients, know that Israel retaliation would get world condemnation, and gain the Palestinian cause a number of sympathizers.
The 200 rockets into Israel in December 2008 was a calculated action to generate Israel retaliation. Among other things, the terrorists, under Iranian direction, took the opportunity to send longer range missiles as a demonstration of what to come.
Timing of the 200 missiles was also designed to put the new American Administration that Iran and its [perhaps unwitting] clients, are going to challenge the United States, through intimidation of Israel, its closest ally.
Hammas under its Iranian mentors are betting that in spite of Israeli stating that the Gaza action will be an all out war, Israel is not likely to use the overwhelming force that would be required to eliminate, or at least eliminate Hammas. Short of eliminating the Hammas threat, Israel would appear as if at had lost tw0 wars to the Arabs, the 2006 Lebanese, and the 2008 Gaza conflict; this is not a desirable position for the United States and its allies to be In.
