Mark LeVine and Culture (Part 2)

Hat tip Aram Alliance-Iran and Middle East Forum

Tomb of Ester and Mordechai in Iran

Earlier this morning, I posted a "review" of the latest piece of anti-Trump garbage from UC Irvine comedian Mark LeVine. On Al Jazeera, with whom he is a contributing writer going back several years, LeVine got himself all worked up over President Trump's threat to blow up Iranian sites and included this phrase in his warning:

"....the Iranian culture...".

Oh, those poor Iranians with all their precious cultural and historical sites that Trump is going to blow to smithereens......

Oh wait! What's this?

"Breaking: Iranian authorities are threatening to destroy the historic tomb of Ester and Mordechai in Hamedan and convert the site to a consular office for Palestine."

Yes, it seems that the sacred Jewish tomb of Ester and Mordechai is unfortunately located in present-day Iran, and according to this report (if accurate), may be in danger of destruction in favor of a Palestinian consulate. And the threat would not be from Trump.

I just sent the above Twitter link to Al Jazeera as a part of the comment thread to LeVine's article.
