Iran has never hidden its hatred for Israel and seems to blame them for losing their general, Qassem Soleimani. The terrorist sympathizing country is, reportedly, behind the hacking of Israel’s largest newspaper, The Jerusalem Post, which left a chilling message to the Israeli people.

Iran Threatens Israel
For a brief time, The Jerusalem Post website showed an illustration of a hand coming out of the sky with a ring on its finger very similar to the one. worn by Soleimani. Out of this ring came a flying projectile in a similar shape to a rocket. Below this image is what looks like an exploding temple mount area of Jerusalem. Written in the sky, both in English and Hebrew, a chilling threat: “We are close to you where you do not think about it.”

The Post is not the only place where this message was left. The Maariv newspaper, which has the same owners as The Jerusalem Post, briefly held the same message. Both sites had the image taken down and were running as normal within a couple of hours of the apparent hack.
A History of Hostility
Iran has been at war with its middle eastern neighbors for centuries. Yet, some peace was restored to the area in the early 1900s, only to be decimated in the 1970s when the reigning Sheik was kicked out. The more moderate ruler was replaced with the Sharia Law-loving religious Imams who support Jihad and protect terrorists.
Hostility towards Israel has been cultivated in the Iranian culture for decades but became a thriving rage under the Presidency of Donald Trump.
The hackers replaced the Jerusalem Post’s homepage with an image depicting a missile coming down from a fist bearing a ring long associated with Qassem Soleimani, the Iranian general killed by a U.S. drone strike in Iraq two years ago. https://t.co/7OcxG9mvxK

Trump was a man of his word when it came to his leadership style. If he talked smack about a terrorist leader he made sure to follow through with action. This was just the case with the death of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani who was commander of the Quds Force, the foreign operation’s arm of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards.
Two years ago today, US Forces carried out a drone strike killing the most dangerous terrorist in the world, Qasem Soleimani. Under the Trump-Pence Administration, we took the fight to terrorists on our terms on their soil. Peace Through Strength. 🇺🇸 https://t.co/RoWavmqzUp

Soleimani died in a targeted airstrike by the Trump administration. It is believed that Israeli intelligence helped with this attack, and Iran has not forgotten.
Qasem Soleimani was actively engaged in plotting against America. We took lawful military action to make sure that no Americans were killed. American leadership now has the responsibility to keep every American safe against the threat from Iran. pic.twitter.com/HasnBzEE7m

President Trump also recognized Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel, moving the United States embassy there, a promise that has been broken by many American presidents. Trump knew how to treat Israel as the ally they are, the question remains will Israel have the support of its American Ally under the Biden Administration?
