The Gathering Storm

Email Email Print

Iran’s Fanatic-in-Chief today branded Israel as a “filthy bacteria.”

This is far worse than even the rankest sort of anti-Semitism. It is an obvious and chilling incitement to genocide, and it will almost certainly go unremarked upon by much of the MSM.

The growing recklessness of Iran has folks at Harvard’s Olin Institute’s Weatherhead Center for International Affairs very worried about what this escalating rhetoric means (HT: Powerline):

I am worried. Last year I did some historical research on the shifts in discourse within British, Japanese, and South African official elites prior to their use of biological weapons. In all these cases, including the deliberate distribution of small pox-infected blankets by the British in North America, the use of bubonic plague by the Japanese in China, and the use of anthrax by the South Africans in what was then Rhodesia, use of biological agents was preceded by an escalation of rhetorical campaigns to demonize and dehumanize the targeted enemy.
