I'm trying to think of something positive to say about the results in yesterday's Iranian elections. The problem is that I can't . It is absolute disaster for the Middle East and potentially the rest of the world.
Let's be honest here, you know you're in real trouble when even the criminally one-sided BBC can't say something nice about the new President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. I bet Hamas and Islamic Jihad are are rubbing their hands with glee as are Bin Laden and his cronies, the Syrians, Hizbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt - this is indeed a worrying day for the rest of us.
The only question that's on my mind this morning is when, not if, Israel will be knocking out their nuclear reactor (assuming it's a feasible operation). This Meshuggenah (i.e. nutter) will no doubt be accellerating the building programme, which only makes things worse.
For the first time, the Europeans will see who they're actually dealing with. This guy is not going to negotiate with the West - and as a result, the bloody Europeans are waking up today, with egg on their faces. I'd love to gloat, but I'm too depressed.
There's not much I can add here, except that right now, the world needs another Purim miracle.
O Lord, you saved us in Persia the last time around. Will you please come to our aid again because we need your help ASAP. You're the only one who can make a difference - humanity is failing all of us yet again.
