This Purim, Jewish Think Tank Warning America About Iran

It is not unusual for Jewish or pro-Israel groups to use the holiday of Purim to warn their constituents about the dangers of the modern Persian threat to the Jewish State.

This year, the organization Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) is warning America of that danger.

On Wednesday, March 12, EMET released a video warning Americans of the history of the Iranian build-up of nuclear weapons and of its concomitant willingness to misrepresent the truth of its activities to national and international representatives seeking to dissuade the modern Persian leaders from fulfilling what those leaders see as their right.

Sarah Stern, EMET’s founder and president, spoke with The Jewish Press by telephone on Friday morning.

“Purim is very much a holiday in which we look at the masks, but we have to appreciate what lurks behind those masks,” Stern said. “We are drunk on moral relativism all year, but our lives depend on distinguishing between Mordechai and Haman. This Purim we at EMET strip away the mask and help reveal to everyone the true face of Hassan Rouhani.”

EMET wants Americans to be aware of what it calls “the disastrous nature” of the deal with Iran signed this January by the P5+1 nations, including the United States, Russia, China, France, Great Britain and Germany.

“Unfortunately, the six-month interim deal, whose text will not be publicly released by the Obama Administration, will provide Iran with sanctions relief amounting to ‘well more than $20 billion dollars,’ but in return gives little of any real value to the West.”

EMET claims that recent analysis reveals that even if Iran fully complies with its responsibilities under that deal, “its ability to build a nuclear weapon will be delayed for just one month.”

Americans need to take their obligations as citizens of this democratic country and inform their elected representatives in Washington, D.C. that they were elected to protect and defend and respond to their constituents, not to any particular political party or its leader, according to EMET. It is recommending that anyone concerned about the safety of their country contact their representatives in Washington and insist they ensure that Iran is prevented from developing nuclear weapons.

EMET is a Jewish, pro-Israel, non-partisan think tank and policy shop located in Washington, D.C. It is headed by Sarah Stern, who authored an article also released on March 12, “We are Still in the Iranian Crosshairs.”

Here is EMET’s video, “What’s it going to take.”

  2. David Dahl says:

    Iranians/Persians consider Purim the first known genocide in the world and are in general disgusted by the fact that Jews still celebrate it.

  3. It just sucks. They are hell bent on murdering and destroying. I wonder how a people can exist with such hate in them? A seeming lack of love or compassion or conscious…. :( The Lord help us.

  4. Johnny Boye says:

  5. This is the nation pursuing a nuclear program .What will happen when they develop it and have nuclear arms? Then the world will be on fire and according to them and not God,Israel and America shall not have any chance to exist.We pray that God will frustrate and bring this evil and weird act to zero in Jesus name.

  6. Lidia BE says:

  7. Alia Arif says:

    Iran wants to wipe Israel off the map because it is antisemitic and also it thinks this will remove the Western foothold in the Middle East.It is a Crusade for Iran.

  8. Haman..we need an Ester..but Golda is gone

  17. Leo Erwin says:

    WHILE YOU DO IT….TAKE OBAMA AND HIS TRIBE WITH YOU…..FIRST…..TO SHOW US YOU CAN DO IT…ASS…

  18. Joseph Sanchez says:

    Why can't you just target the greedy, lying , corrupt, money hungry American government official and leave the good American people out of it? You would be doing all of us a great favor! The American people and our government ARE NOT ONE, the American people have NO VOICE and have been stripped from there GOD GIVEN constitutional rights by those we trusted in office! WE NEED A MIRACLE TO SAVE US NOW!!!!

  19. Anonymous says:

    what Obama and Kerry are really thinking…or better, understand the Arab/Iranian mind?…I do not think they do; more important…do they really care?…????????!!!!

  20. Joseph Sanchez says:

    All they care about is money, greed, power and the new world order at any cost!
    BUT SO DO ALL POLITICIANS IN EVERY COUNTRY!

  21. What happened and happens now in Iran, Iran has to thank to the jackass James Earl Carter.

  22. The Islamic Republic of Iran's Supreme Ruler in addition to keeping the sanctions in place must be given a DATE CERTAIN,that if passed the military will totally destroy their nuclear bomb facilities and it's program.Should they retaliate the military will take the same action against the finatic Japanese as the U.S did when it ended WWII

  23. Maynard Miller says:

    I fully believe this article and video to be an accurate assessment of Iran. Unfortunately, most of those we sent to Washington to represent us have their heads buried deeply in the sand. They believe that if they keep their fingers crossed and hope that everything will be O.K. Boom, Boom, Boom good bye America!

  24. Iran wants to destroy the world through their evil motives.

  25. Jools Ferguson says:

    Joseph Sanchez our government here in Australia is most definitely NOT interested in the "new world order". Maybe so in many other places, but our leaders are practising Christians and are not part of the nwo idiots!

  26. Jools Ferguson says:

    Totally agree – it looks from over here in Oz that your leader is setting the stage for his muzzie mates to invade to take you over – top level muzzie brotherhood men in key government roles – appointed by ayatollah obummer, banning guns, so you have NO MEANS of protection, removal of the National Christian Day of Prayer and replacing it with a muzzie day of prayer – HOSTED by the ayatollah himself AT the White House, helping to destabilize the American dollar, so the people become depressed and pliable – I could go on, but I'm sure you see it more clearly than we do. Our PM has stopped the infiltration of the muzzie "refugees" into Oz in less than 6 months of taking office, in spite of the Greenie leaders and labor idiots, the bleeding hearts etc. I fear for the future for our friends in the US and pray to our good Lord that you will be kept safe and that the ayatollah is deposed sooner than later.

  27. According to history, Iranians/Persians first plotted to commit genocide against Jews and were found out, which brought about the death of those who plotted. Be thankful you are not Native American and have to live with Columbus Day, watching your homeland celebrate a butcher, pedophile, thief and slave trader. Grow up.

  28. Remember Haman tried to murder all the Jews. Never forget.

  29. Gary Harper says:

    You are dealing with Obama. He does not like the political institution called "America". His policies are designed to destroy it, not perpetuate it. Anything that leads to the downfall of our Republic is looked upon with favor by him.

    Expect no help from American politics and politicians for the near future. We are all fighting for our freedoms and our very survival daily here, right now. Most of the Western nations are already lost to Socialism. Soon they will fall. We may follow suit, that is what this war is about.

    Obama is actually an Amalekite, elected by Amalekites and atheists. So what real help can you possibly expect to get from our government right now?
