Iran committed to ‘full annihilation of Israel,’ says top Iranian military commander
The Daily Caller ^ | 5/20/12 | Reza Kahlili

Posted on 05/20/2012 8:39:19 PM PDT by Nachum

Iran is dedicated to annihilating Israel, the Islamic regime’s military chief of staff declared Sunday.

“The Iranian nation is standing for its cause and that is the full annihilation of Israel,” Maj. Gen. Hassan Firouzabadi said in a speech to a defense gathering Sunday in Tehran.

His remarks came on the day International Atomic Energy Agency director Yukiya Amano flew to Tehran to negotiate for inspections of Iran’s nuclear program. They were reported by the Fars News Agency, the media outlet of the Revolutionary Guards Corps.

While many within the Islamic regime, including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have often stated that Israel should be annihilated, until Sunday no one in the nation’s leadership has announced Iran’s determined intention to carry it out.

Meanwhile this is never brought up during any press conference.
Maybe if Obama and the Republicans close their eyes the bad boogieman will go away.

I believe Obama carried the Jewish vote in 2008.

He will probably carry it again in 2012.

Lying to someone is easy.
Convincing someone they’ve been lied too is hard.

Aything Israel does about these Nazi like threats should be put where the blame really lies -- on Obama!

The Messiah so encourages Iranian agression that military action is inevitible or there is the option of a second holocaust. At about 5,930,000 Jews or so in Israel, such a number could even be rounded up to six million.

Iran’s Twelvers want war:

“The mullahs leading Iran’s Islamic regime believe in the messianic return of the 12th and last Islamic messiah, Imam Mahdi. According to Shiite belief, Mahdi will reappear at the time of Armageddon, and his coming — as the Iranian documentary “The Coming Is Upon Us” revealed – will be triggered by the destruction of Israel.

In a recent statement, Grand Ayatollah Jafar Sobhani, a religious authority and a top Iranian “Twelver Shia” — one who believes in the 12th Imam — addressed the future world described in the Quran. “The Quran is the proof that the world will be controlled and managed by the forces of truth and that there will be one government ruling everyone throughout the world,” he explained.

The Quran promises — twice — the worldwide rule of Islam and its victory over all other religions, Sobhani said, and this will only happen when the last descendant of Muhammad, Imam Mahdi, returns and takes the rule of Islam across the world.

Ayatollah Khamenei referred to this prophecy in a recent speech. “In light of the realization of the divine promise by almighty God,” he said, “the Zionists and the Great Satan [America] will soon be defeated. Allah’s promise will be delivered, and Islam will be victorious.”

**************


The Armed Forces Joint Chief of Staff
**************

"Iranian Gen. Firouzabadi also pointed to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s emphasis on the necessity of supporting Palestinians who fight against the “Zionist regime” Israel.

Khamenei considers defending Israel’s enemies a religious duty.....The mullahs leading Iran’s Islamic regime believe in the messianic return of the 12th and last Islamic messiah, Imam Mahdi. According to Shiite belief, Mahdi will reappear at the time of Armageddon, and his coming will be triggered by the destruction of Israel."
****************

Firouzabadi... is considered close to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.....

Firouzabadi has headed the Iranian army staff since 1989.

He studied veterinary medicine in Mashhad and enrolled in religious studies under Khamenei.

He was a strong supporter of Ahmadinejad in presidential elections.

******************

General Firouzabadi: A General Who Neither Was a Soldier nor an Officer

General Hassan Firouzabadi is the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces.[1] While being Iran’s highest military officer after Ayatollah Khamenei, he lacks a background in both the military and the IRGC. Before receiving the rank of general and appointed to be the Chief of the Armed Forces in 1989, Hassan Firouzabadi had not served in any of Iran’s armed forces.

It was during the war and at the Khatem al-Anbiya base when Firouzabadi came close to collaborating with the Armed Forces. Hassan Firouzabadi, supervised by Hashemi Rafsanjani at the time, was commander of the Khatem base. Hassan Rowhani served as his deputy in charge of coordinating [meetings between] ministry representatives of the Mousavi government at the Khatem base.

After the war ended in 1988, a council of professional military figures decided to confer Hassan Firouzabadi the rank of general. Ayatollah Khamenei appointed him Chief of the Armed Forces.

Firouzabadi, now 59, has this job for 21 years. Ayatollah Khamenei highly admires him, and armed forces personnel consider Firouzabadi faithful and religious [enough] to be Commander of the Armed Forces.

Thank God the Iranians are as stupid as their inbreeding has caused them. The Israelis will beat them like a tin drum while the Iranians watch the fire balls as if they are the coming of the 12th Imam. The Iranians will be either stupid and blind or colored glass.

IN a culture such as Iran,people live or die on how they interpret or promote certain media.At such being able to openly talk about destroying someone,to their eyes,is a fantastic opportunity as reality is bound to follow fiction.

While the IDF isn’t what it used to be and Israel is not quite as hard as it used to be-there is no way Iran can or will do anything.They will post more pictures of old men in robes as objects of adoration while their people starve to death.

I believe he means it. More’s the pity. I’m presently finishing restoration of a Megillat Esther that an inmate at Auschwitz had kept safe. His son/grandson found it in the attic, and wanted the faded lettering rejuvenated. The “thousand year Reich” is gone. Nazism is overused for rhetorical overkill, and little else. Auschwitz is now a museum. This Megilla, that outlived Hitler and all his flunkies, will be read every Purim, and tell succeeding generations about another Persian who was “fully committed to full annihilation” of the Jewish people, who will still be here, laughing and clanging noisemakers at the Haman of that time, as we will at the Haman of this, long after he’s only a memory to be blotted out with a grager.

I think the world would be a happier place without the yahoos running Iran.
