Oh please... "outcry" by citizens will force leaders to do something ? Today's leaders do not give a rip what their citizens think-they are mini dictators. Do you think Obama "cares" what US citizens think about Obamacare or his gun control agenda ? High percentage of Americans are against both-yet he shoved Obamacare down our throats and eventually he will shove some type of gun control ( and more and more of it in the next 4 years)..do you think he cares that most American's are against him sending F16's and millions/billionsin American citizens tax dollars to Muslim Brotherhood led countries ? NO ! He will do exactly what he wants...including covering for Iran and stalling---giving them all the time they need to get their nukes, he hates Israel as much as they do !

This video is a distressing call to war against Iran
I find this video distressing and even frightening, for its language, mixing piety and militarism, clearly calls for armed action against Iran. Think of Iraq and how the United States destroyed that country. And think of the lives that were lost and of the lives that will be lost if this call to war is heeded.

G-D protects Israel, I wouldn't want to be Ahmadinejad!
"For He who watches over Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps"

Ahmadinejad is not a historian, obviously !!
It seems like those who don't read the history of Israel, are destined to repeat it.......(ie. the six day war with Eygpt).

in essence, there is only one way to fight and defeat him, and this is G-d. all we can do is pray to Him and be loyal. G-d has plans, He doesn't mess up. He is waiting for His children to cry out to Him, and He can then "show Who's Boss."

Bloody war with Iran
Nothing will stop Ahmadinejad. Not America, Great Britain, France, Germany, Austria, and all rest. No one will stand up or halt Ahmadinejad's increasing process from creating and advancing nuclear weapons. Everyone of us need to defend for his or her country. Iran and Israel stand alone. God is on our side.

He is pure evil and must be stopped. What is it going to take before the American government takes REAL steps to stop this monster!

Until American Jews wake up and stop backing Democrats then Isreal is doomed. This is coming from a Catholic. I don't understand how American Jews oppose Republican policies to back Isreal.

why did you forget to mention the most important solution? and that is - PRAY TO HASHEM THAT HE SHOULD STOP HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
