Please see the source for the video.

Transcript:

General Ismail Kawthari, Deputy Commander of the IRGC Tharallah Base, told Al-Alam TV that Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei had said “that this entity [Israel] must be wiped off the Planet Earth within 25 years,” but that in his own opinion, that was the maximum period, and “God willing, it will happen before that.” The interview aired on September 27.

Interviewer: Iran has provided aid to Hizbullah, Syria, and the resistance movements in Palestine for almost four decades, but it has paid a steep political price for this. Will Iran continue to pursue this policy of support for the axis of resistance, despite the political price this exacts? Continue reading

Military Leader: Iran Sending Elite Fighters Into U.S., Europe

It’s been warned dozens of times on Global Geopolitics that hundreds, if not thousands of sleeper cells, are already in the United States.

For more, see: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE… to name a few.

The Iranian proxy Hezbollah is already near the southern U.S. border, a few miles from the Texas and training camps have been in Mexico (PDF file) for years already. Some Mexican drug cartels have even been converted from fake Catholics to Islamists. They’re all waiting for the green light, which may be given should war break out or even a strong economic downturn to send America off the cliff.

The threat is real. The Obama administration doesn’t care, and they’re aiding and abetting them. Moreover, everyday Americans are asleep at the wheel as the NFL and Kardashians are of higher priority.

What will it take for America to wake up? Hopefully not another 9/11 or worse, but sadly, that is the pattern.

In a September 25, 2016 speech to a Tehran political circle, Mohsen Rafighdoost, who was minister of the Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq War and who heads the Noor Foundation,[1] said that the secret of the victory of Iran’s Islamic Revolution was Iranians’ total obedience to the leader. He said that today the IRGC ground forces are “five times better” than the U.S. Army, and that the Iranian regime is capable of deploying nine million troops against it in less than 10 days.

Rafighdoost added that Iran’s missiles in Tehran and the northwest of the country can reach Tel Aviv, and expressed his yearning for Israel to launch a missile at Iran so that Iran could “flatten Tel Aviv.” He also said that Islamic Revolution founder Ayatollah Khomeini established Hizbullah in Lebanon to promote the Islamization of other countries,[2] and that today, in the era of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the organization has become “a supreme force in the region.”  Continue reading

Iran Hardliners Gain Authority in Backlash That Could Sideline Rouhani

ANKARA (Reuters) – A year after Iran’s nuclear deal with the West, hardliners are gaining authority in a backlash against pragmatic President Hasan Rouhani that his allies say could leave him sidelined or push him out of power in an election next year.

Rouhani, who was elected in a landslide in 2013 on a promise to reduce Iran’s diplomatic isolation, delivered the agreement that resulted in a lifting of financial sanctions in return for curbs on Tehran’s nuclear program.

The deal had the grudging approval of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the arch-conservative in office since 1989, whose ultimate authority outranks that of the elected president. Continue reading

In an October 30, 2015 interview with the Tasnim news agency, which is affiliated with the IRGC, Hossein Sheikholislam, an advisor to Iranian Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, who is close to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, said that Tehran would continue defending the Assad regime. He stressed that Iran is coming to the Vienna talks about Syria as the “victorious” party, and that Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will conduct himself in a manner “befitting the blood [shed by] the Iranian martyrs in Syria.” Sheikholislam added that Iran is not negotiating with the U.S. on Syria (in line with Khamenei’s orders), and that the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, which are the defeated parties, are not qualified to participate in negotiations about Syria’s future because they are the chief supporters of the terrorism there.  Continue reading

In light of these developments, it is not clear whether Iran will officially announce its “adoption” of the JCPOA. It is also not clear whether the U.S. will announce its suspension of sanctions and the E.U. will announce its termination of sanctions, as per the agreement. Continue reading
