From ISIS's beheadings, to the tragic terrorist attacks in Paris, including the Charlie Hebdo shootings leaving 13 innocent dead, and the slaughter of four Jews at a Kosher supermarket for the mere fact that they were Jewish, the Western world has been left shocked by an enemy it does not know how to defeat.

The Islamic State's campaign of genocide and crimes against humanity has taken on a new level of horror with the murder of Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kassebeh, who was burned alive by the radical Islamic terror group, the recent massacre of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians who were in Libya, and caging of Kurdish Peshmerga fighters in Iraq. In addition, Israel was subject to Hamas' launch of 4,000 rockets into many of its major cities, and the State has to fight terrorists, including those from Hamas the Palestinian Authority and Hezbollah, on a daily basis to protect its citizens. 

Dr. Mordechai Kedar is an Israeli scholar of Arabic literature and a lecturer at Bar-Ilan University. He holds the Ph.D. from Bar-Ilan University. Kedar is an academic expert on the Israeli Arab population. He served for twenty-five years in IDF Military Intelligence, where he specialized in Islamic groups, the political discourse of Arab countries, the Arabic press and mass media, and the Syrian domestic arena. He is a highly published author who has consulted with both the United States Armed Forces as well as Israeli forces. The Los Angeles Times' Edmund Sanders described Dr. Kedar as "one of the few Arabic-speaking Israeli pundits seen on Arabic satellite channels defending Israel."


This newsletter is dedicated to the six Iranian Sunni Kurds who were executed by hanging in Iran on March 4. This incident was raised to ABS attention by Dr. Mansur Rastani, Contributing Editor to Family Security Matters. According to reports:

"The six prisoners, Hamed Ahmadi, Kamal Mollaei, Hadi Husseini, Sedigh Mohamadi, Jamshid Dehghani and Jahangir Dehghani had started a hunger strike to protest against the inequitable decision by the regime of Iran when transferred to an unknown location of execution. Other Sunni Kurd prisoners also had started a hunger strike to protest the six prisoners who could be expected to be hanged. They were sentenced to death on the charge of Moharebeh, acting against national security and propaganda against the regime of Iran at 28 branch of Revolutionary court which chaired by Judge Mohammad Mogheyse on 2009. According to the Human Rights reports; they were accused of the false charge murdering a senior Sunni cleric with links to the Iranian authorities through the severe torture during enduring excruciating months in Islamic Republic chambers."

In Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to US Congress on March 3, he gave potent advocacy for the Iranian people who are gravely and gruesomely oppressed by their government. The United States has not heard such official commentary since the 2009 uprising over the stolen election in Iran, and has not heard this level of recognition by the US Administration to the Iranian people for the Iranian government's excessive human rights atrocities.

Here is Dr. Rastani's response to PM Netanyahu's speech, in English and Persian. Dr. Rastani is an Iranian-American.

"Netanyahu's speech in US congress today, even though was an emphasis of what the Iranian oppositions in diaspora has been claiming all along, however it contained an important point that hasn't been addressed by anyone (Iranian or non-Iranian) before. And that was familiarizing the public opinion in America with the reality of ongoing situation in Iran, the crimes of the Islamic regime against its own people, its active sponsorship of terrorism abroad, its hegemonic role in the region, and the fact that the Iran's regime has taken the Iranian people as its hostage for more than 3 decades. Given the political correctness context of the US Mainstream Medias, the significance of the Netanyahu's speech is much more acknowledged; it is considered a great service to the Iranians, which is highly appreciated."
