Iranian Official: ‘We are Preparing to Liberate Jerusalem’
IsraPundit ^ | 28 Feb | Dalit Halevy, Tova Dvorin

Militia carries out exercise to prepare for invasion of Holy City. General: the Islamic world is waiting for Tehran to call them to battle.

The Islamist Basij militia force in Tehran ran a special military exercise Thursday and Friday preparing for an Iranian takeover of Jerusalem.

The exercise, entitled “March to Al-Maqdis (Jerusalem),” included training in the event of such a takeover, including drills for the protection of cities, assistance and rescue, dealing with social unrest, the protection of sensitive and important military centers, dealing with the invasion and landing of “enemy” (IDF) forces from helicopters, and carrying out complicated tactical maneuvers at night.

In an official statement, the militia said that the exercise is designed to develop and enhance the capabilities of the Al-Maqdis Brigades, improve Basij military competence, and foster a “self-sacrificing spirit” among the terrorists.

Tens of thousands participated in the exercise and terrorists-in-training flocked to the program from dozens of Basij battalions.

Basij commander General Mohammad Reza Naqdi announced that the exercise was planned because the “boastful” (an expression used to indicate the US and Western powers) are at the end of their path to power and “the fighters and freedom-loving people” worldwide – Islamists – are angry and want to destroy the US and Israel to “restore” Jerusalem to an Islamic city.

Naqdi added that the terrorists “need to be prepared now, more than ever,” for the great “liberation battle” for Jerusalem, which would “avenge for the innocent blood spilled” by Western powers.

The General also claimed that Islamists worldwide are “waiting” for the call to battle from the Islamic Republic.

Last week, “moderate” Iranian president Hassan Rouhani called for the Palestinian Arab “liberation” of Jerusalem in light of ongoing peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA).

“One of the wishes of the Iranian nation is liberation of the Holy Quds,” the Iranian President was quoted as having said by the semi-official Fars news agency.

Rouhani also hoped that “the Palestinian nation and the entire Muslim world will find a serious solution to this occupation through unity and integrity.”

Sort of makes clear what US foreign policy is siding with.

Since terrorists and Islam are one and the same thing,
one can only believe that terrorists in THIS country
are waiting for the “call”.

or preemptively deprived of nukes....they are toothless without nukes. They couldn’t defeat Saddam’s army that we went through in about week on 2 different occasions.

Israel would chew them up and spit them out if they were without the threat of nuclear retaliation

I won’t be surprised if Israel does it. Iran is watching the weak kneed obama and how he’s dealt with Syria and how he’s dealing with the Ukraine. Israel knows they’re on their own.

The only thing that would be liberated in an Iranian invasion of Israel is the world from Iranian foolish for awhile. Israel would pound Iran so far down a hole that it would be decades before it re-emerged.

Good luck with that. God (not your pagan moon-god) has something to say about that.

“-—carrying out complicated tactical maneuvers at night “———that’s going to be the mullahs trying to avoid stepping in their own slit trench in the dark. Try not to get their rag wet. Somebody want to tell them Jerusalem is already liberated? And if they try really hard to get stupid, the “liberation” could happen to Tehran?

Somebody has this backwards. When Israel takes out the Basij, it will be Iran (or rather the Persian people who will be liberated). That will be a glorious day!

I believe Iran now has 4 nukes and working on 5 and 6. Eight would be the minimum go number, but I believe they are now more greedy given O’s negotiations. That means that 12 is now the magic number.

The goal is not to liberate Jerusalem; it is to rain genocide down on the Jewish people, especially in Israel.

To make the plan work they need the military of either Egypt or Syria. They had then lost Egypt and are still fighting for Syria.

Without another country’s help, Israel only has her submarines to preemptively strike. Retaliation would be of little use to Israel as the damage will have been done and the invasion in progress.

Sounds like a silly reason for getting Iranians slaughtered, but if that is how they want to roll, kill them. The world won’t be the worse for it.

Good luck with that, General. If he thinks the ulmahd is going to follow a bunch of screaming Shiites, well, he's just not thinking straight.
