Jewish party leader: Pray for the annihilation of Iran

This blog has often called out war-mongering speech from Iranian religious officials. But hey, we’re not prejudiced. The Jews can also play that game.

Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, leader of the Shas party in Israel, is now calling on fellow Jews to pray for the destruction of Iran. Apparently, the Shas party is Israel’s fourth biggest political party.

“When we say ‘may our enemies be struck down’ on Rosh Hashana, it shall be directed at Iran, the evil ones who threaten Israel. God shall strike them down and kill them,” said Yosef.”

What was that you said again? The middle east conflict is purely political and not fueled by religion? Right. Of course. Move right along, there’s nothing to see here.

    Those wicked old Iranians have nothing to worry about. Praying just doesn’t work, never has, never will, no matter to which god it’s uttered at. If that’s the worst the Israelis propose, it could be a laid back altercation.
