BERLIN Rising criticism from prominent German- Iranians, NGOs and the federal commissioner for culture and media prompted an elite cultural foundation on Tuesday to eject Irans acting Deputy Foreign Minister Mostafa Dolatyar from its board of trustees because he called for the destruction of Israel.
According to a report in Irans Mahan News in 2010, Dolatyar said, We hope that the prophecy of the Imam [Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini] regarding the downfall of this regime [Israel] will occur very soon and that we will witness it.
A spokesman for Bernd Neumann, Germanys federal culture commissioner, told The Jerusalem Post that one of the reasons Neumann resigned from the board of the Schloss Neuhardenberg Foundation last week was Dolatyars presence on it.
The Berlin daily Tagesspiegel wrote on Tuesday that Dolatyar was ejected because of his previous anti-Semitic, aggressive anti-Israeli statement.
Spokesman Jörg Kronsbein told the Post that the foundation was unaware of the anti-Israel statement from Dolatyar. The foundation has been immersed in criticism because of it close ties with Irans regime.
According to the foundations website, the institution seeks to deepen relations and is a place of meeting for different cultures.

Doesn’t the fool know that Mohammed was Allah’s last prophet? He’s all out so don’t believe any claimed prophecy by any Ayatollah come lately.
destruction of Israel = downfall of this regime ??
That is a bit far fetched.
