JERUSALEM, Sept. 25, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- As Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad prepares to speak at the United Nations, Heart to Heart has released a new video portraying Israel's enemies attacking Jerusalem, its capital. Showing a woman enjoying her morning coffee while watching the news depicting the instability of the Middle East and its threats against Israel, the ominous headlines turn into reality. The ending is every Israeli's worst nightmare. (www.afmda.org/heart-to-heart-cant-ignore-the-risks)
The dramatic portrayal was produced by Heart to Heart to generate support for its campaign to protect and preserve Israel's blood supply. Heart to Heart Director Jonathan Feldstein said "the Iranian threat, and other threats Israel faces, are very real and Israel needs to be ready for every 'what if' scenario. All we did was visualize what is on the mind of all Israelis."
This week, commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guard, General Mohammad Ali Jafari said the war between the two nations will eventually happen and Iran will "destroy the Jewish State." This is not the first time Iran has threatened to annihilate Israel. Ahmadinejad has threatened to wipe Israel off the map numerous times, and called for its countdown to destruction.
After watching Heart to Heart video, Ryan Mauro, noted commentator, national security analyst, and founder of WorldThreats.com, said "we must be committed to ensure that the great evil threatening Israel does not prevail. However, in case the safety of Israel is compromised by an actual attack, we need Heart to Heart to save lives in the aftermath."
Commenting about the timeliness of the video, Pastor Stan Doland of International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, said "This week, the Jewish people around the world are observing their most sacred holiday, the Day of Atonement. In the past, the church stayed silent when humanity's worst evils were unleashed over seven decades ago. During this biblical season, we must demonstrate our commitment to 'Never Again' by standing at Israel's side. At one time people thought Hitler's words were empty threats. We know differently now. When an extremist leader is vowing to wipe a nation off the map, we cannot stand idly by."
