Thirty-five years ago, Iran was one of Israel's staunchest allies. That all changed when Ayatollah Khomeini led the Islamic revolution that toppled the Shah and installed a radical theocracy in his place. This week Iranians celebrated the 35th anniversary of the revolution. Hundreds of thousands of people thronged the streets of Tehran as the celebration continued.
Of course today, Iran is bitterly opposed to Israel. Despite the fact that former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was known for his Holocaust denial and public calls for Israel's destruction, has been replaced with a supposedly more moderate leader, the language coming from Iran's top leaders is little changed. This past week another leading cleric declared that Israel is a “cancer” on the Middle East and suggested radical surgery to remove the cancer as the only solution to the problem.
Iran has funded and trained and armed terrorist groups around the world, particularly the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists that inhabit Israel's northern and southern borders. According to Israeli military intelligence, there are some 170,000 rockets and missiles aimed at the Jewish state, and the vast majority of those are there because of Iran.
A careful look at the situation Israel is facing makes it abundantly clear that we must do what we can to help the Jewish People today. That is why Jewish Voice is working every day with a number of ministry partners inside Israel to meet the needs of the hungry, the homeless and the addicted in the name and love of Yeshua. Your contribution of support today will allow us to continue to do more to help those in need. Thank you so much for your generous help and your prayers. God bless you.
