Iran’s defense minister threatens to leave no part of Saudi Arabia untouched if Riyadh “does anything ignorant”.

Iran’s defense minister threatened Saudi Arabia on Sunday, days after a Saudi prince ruled out dialogue with Tehran and said he would protect his kingdom from what he called Iranian efforts to dominate the Muslim world.

“If the Saudis do anything ignorant, we will leave no area untouched except Mecca and Medina,” Dehqan said, according to the report, in comments made to Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV. Continue reading

Israel is “truly terrified” of the nuclear deal Iran signed with world powers, the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) envoy to Iran said, adding he hoped Teheran would “produce 1,000 nuclear bombs.”

The comments by Salah Zawawi were made in a Feb. 20 interview on Iran-backed Hizbullah’s Al-Manar TV and were translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). Continue reading

Iran Steps Up Threats to Israel, U.S.

 

  • “En Sha’a Allah [God willing], there will be no such thing as a Zionist regime in 25 years. Until then, struggling, heroic and jihadi morale will leave no moment of serenity for Zionists.” — Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, September, 2015.
  • “If the Supreme Leader’s orders [are] to be executed, with the abilities and the equipment at our disposal, we will raze the Zionist regime in less than eight minutes.” — Ahmad Karimpour, a senior adviser to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ elite unit, the Quds Force.
  • Iran is also attempting to intimidate Donald Trump from taking a tough stance against Iran. Trump ought to be wary of falling into Iran’s tactical game of fear-mongering. For Iran, US concessions and silence in the face of Iran’s threats mean weakness and fear. On the other hand, when Iran sees that the US is taking a robust stance and that the military option is always on the table, Tehran retreats.
  • As long as Iran’s Supreme Leader is alive and as long as the ruling clerics preserve the political establishment, Iran will maintain the core pillars of its foreign policies and revolutionary principles: these are anchored in anti-Israeli, anti-American and anti-Semitic politics. Iranian politicians across the political spectrum totally agree on these fundamentals.

Iran’s threats against Israel and the US are becoming bolder and louder. Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is now repeatedly threatening Israel’s annihilation relatively soon.

According to Iran’s Press TV, Khamenei recently stated:

“The Zionist regime — as we have already said — will cease to exist in the next 25 years if there is a collective and united struggle by the Palestinians and the Muslims against the Zionists.” Continue reading

Hezbollah Threatens “Tens of Thousands” Israeli Deaths

When following the new stories lately, one might realize the bigger picture in that all sides seem fully prepared and braced for conflict. The only missing component is what sparks the fire that will engulf the entire Middle Eastern region. A sudden and imminent collapse of the Syrian regime could be once such factor. The use of chemical or biological weapons will also mean all bets are off the table and Damascus is likely to be razed.

The leader of the terror group Hezbollah has vowed to unleash a barrage of missile attacks on Israel, potentially causing “tens of thousands of fatalities” in the Jewish state’s northern region, according to a recently translated interview.

Hassan Nasrallah, the terror group’s longtime leader, briefly emerged from hiding late last week to discuss Hezbollah’s ability to “turn the lives of millions of Zionist Israelis in all of occupied Palestine into a living hell,” according an interview with Al-Manar TV that was translated Wednesday by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“We are capable of changing the face of Israel,” Nasrallah said. “I say to the Israelis: There are a number of targets” in Israel that can be “reached by several precise missiles.”

“We possess such missiles,” Narallah added, confirming suspicion’s that Hezbollah has been stockpiling more sophisticated weaponry. “Striking these targets—which I will not name—with only a few missiles will turn the lives of hundreds of thousands of Zionists into a living hell. We may be talking about tens of thousands of fatalities.”

“We have the coordinates of these targets,” Nasrallah said. “Our missiles are set in secret locations and are aimed at these targets.”
