    “Tehran says its nuclear program is purely for peaceful purposes …”

    For Islam, peace comes as a result of submission to Allah. As part of this, peace can only come about if every last Jew is killed. Closely followed by the polytheists (Christians). And the Hindus. And the Buddhists. And all the other religions of the world. Allah will reign supreme and peace will come …
    God help us!
