It wasn't against Iran which executes dissenting academics. It wasn't against Russia whose universities fire dissenting academics.

"God's people have always been under the gun (even before there were guns). Evil has always sought to wipe out God's people.
Nazi Germany was over 6 million Jews on the way to doing that in the 1940s. Out of that holocaust came the rebirth of the Jewish nation after almost 2,000 years.
But evil is still gunning (and bombing) for the nation of Israel. ...
