Just Imagine


TEHRAN - Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards are ready to provide a military escort to cargo ships trying to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza, a representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday.

“Iran’s Revolutionary Guards naval forces are fully prepared to escort the peace and freedom convoys to Gaza with all their powers and capabilities,” Ali Shirazi, Khamenei’s representative inside the Revolutionary Guards, was quoted as saying by the semi-official Mehr news agency.

So, Ahmadinejad and his boss the Ayatollah want to deal themselves in, hey?


Any intervention by the Iranian military would be considered highly provocative by Israel which accuses Iran of supplying weapons to Hamas, the Islamist movement which rules Gaza.

No kidding.

This sort of thing would be a blatant act of war on Iran’s part. There’s no way they could claim any kind of otherwise legal entitlement to involve themselves in the running of the Gaza blockade except as an official act by their government.

One wonders if they actually believe they can buffalo Israel, whether by running a bluff or by actually enacting a show of force of sufficient size to cause the Israelis to back down.

Personally, I don’t see it; Unless, of course, they already have a nuke on line to send over, in which case the Israelis will no doubt have a whole lot more to send back.

Let’s pray, friends, that this is not the case.

Let’s also pray that we are not now looking at a prelude to a war between Israel and Iran, both for Israel’s sake and the sakes of the millions of Iranians who crave freedom but are trapped under the thumb of the Islamofascists who have “owned” Iran ever since Jimmy Carter turned his back on Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi and abandoned him to a coup by those fanatical maniacs.

If it does come to a war, I have little doubt but that Israel will win, but it will be a prolonged, bloody affair on both sides — Iran is not Trinidad.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel will continue to stop ships reaching the shore and creating “an Iranian port in Gaza,” a reference to Iran’s support for Hamas.

An Iranian port in Gaza is an apt description, and if Netanyahu does not want that to come to pass, it will not.

The Israeli prime minister is not the sheep Tzippi Livni and her corrupt leftist boss Ehud Olmert were, he is old school Israeli patriot.

I wonder if he’ll tell the mad Ayatollah to “bring it on”, like his late older brother and former commander of Sayeret Matkal might have done.

Remember a true hero named Yonatan Netanyahu?
