Subject: Cyrus, King of Persia; Esther; and Ahasuerus, King of Persia
Cyrus, King of Persia (Iran), defeated the Babylonians and freed the Jews from their exile in Babylon. Cyrus then restored the Jews to Judea and helped to rebuild Jerusalem and the Temple. Later, Ahasuerus', King of Persia's, wife died (killed by the Jews?). Mordecai persuaded Esther (her Jewish name was Hadassah) to conceal the fact that she was Jewish and offer herself to the King for a new wife. Hadassah became Queen Esther. Haman, descended from Esau through the Amalekites, allegedly had attempted to persuade King Ahasuerus to punish the Jews for refusing to worship the King. This a doubtful account, but at any rate, Esther talked her husband, the King of Persia, into hanging Haman on the gallows he had prepared for the Jews. Esther then persuaded the King to mass murder all of Haman's people. This is the genocide of Haman/Amalek/ Esau, that the Jews celebrate during Purim. The story is told in the book of "Esther" in the Old Testament. Many lesson are contained in this story. For the Israelis, it must be ironic, if not intentional, and I believe it is intentional, that they are again using a Persian/Iranian King/President, to accomplish their ends, this time to destroy the Persians, themselves, and perhaps to trigger a violent response and a war. It is a reminder of what ultimately happens to those who serve Zionists. I also wonder if after the coming air strikes on Iran, another staged attack will hit us in the US, which it will be claimed was an Iranian retaliation, and this will be used as a pretext to begin the next world war.
God commands the Jews to exterminate Esau/Amalek/Haman (Gentiles), a commandment they must not forget lest God will exterminate them:
"Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt; How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God."—Deuteronomy 25:17-18
"And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi: For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation."—Exodus 17:14-16
"Therefore it shall be, when the LORD thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget it."—Deuteronomy 25:19
Many Jews pretended to convert to Islam and they lived in Turkey. They were called Donmeh (various spellings). The supposed converts showed their true face when the Young Turks under the leadership of Jews revolted against the Sultan, destroyed the old culture, and committed genocide against the Christian Armenians, the enemy of the Jews--from the Jewish perspective.
