Videos asserting Israel’s right to attack Iran go viral


JERUSALEM (JTA) — More than 2.5 million people have viewed two installments of a video advocating Israel’s legal and moral authority to attack Iran.

The videos, developed and narrated by Ari Abramowitz and Jeremy Gimpel, American-born media personalities and co-founders of The Land of pro-Israel activist group, warn that waiting for the international community to take action against Iran would be a dangerous mistake.

The first video, “Israel vs. Iran – Back to the Future,” has been viewed nearly 1 million times since it was posted two weeks ago. It says that “The Jewish people can never entrust our fate in the hands of others, and we want to wake the world up to the reality that the Iranian threat is very real and echoes the threat of Hitler in 1939.”

The second video, “Iran vs. Israel – No Fear,” has been viewed nearly 1.7 million times since it was posted nearly four days ago. “We must learn from our history and allow it to guide our actions during these challenging times,” it says. Within three days of its launch, the film had been seen by more than 1.6 million people.

A third video is set to be posted soon, according to the organization.

The Land of operates a pro-Israel Facebook group with more than 250,000 friends.
