I do believe, but I am not an overly religious person, and I try not to learn too much from history. Still, when I read this morning that Mr Ahmadinejad has once again publicly satisfied himself and other Jew-haters with visions of a world free of Jews, I could not help thinking of another Persian who had similar dreams. Haman was hanged together with his ten sons on the same gallows that were supposed to be used for the execution of Jews. More than 2500 years after his violent death, the Jewish people that he so desperately tried to annihilate is still alive and kicking today.
