We were told that the Iranian people wanted peace. They said that our economic and trade embargos were strangling the life out of a peaceful people. We were told that the new regime in Tehran was working to bring themselves in line with the West.
We are learning, as many had warned, this was all a lie.
The deputy commander of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard declared Friday that there are tens of thousands of missiles in Lebanon ready to strike Israel.
“Hezbollah has 100,000 missiles that are ready to hit Israel to liberate the occupied Palestinian territories if the Zionist regime repeats its past mistakes,” Gen. Hossein Salami was quoted as saying by Tasnim, according to Reuters.
It should be noted that this is no more than propaganda. If these people had the ability to destroy Israel, they would. They have sworn to eradicate the Jewish nation from the face of the earth. The thing stopping them is not Israeli policy; it is the knowledge that they would fail. And this is why in the same way, there has now come the call for unity in Islam.
According to Fox, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said
“The global arrogance (the United States and its allies) wants to create discord among Muslims … Unity is the only way to restore stability in the region,” Rouhani said. “We stand with the dispossessed Palestinian nation.”
Rouhani spoke as tens of thousands of Iranians joined in an anti-Israel rally to express support for the Palestinians. The demonstrators shouted “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” and while they burned an Israeli flag.
“The Zionist regime (Israel) is a regional base for America and the global arrogance … Disunity and discord among Muslim and terrorist groups in the region … have diverted us from the important issue of Palestine,” Rouhani added.
And thanks to the Obama administration, they have been able to rearm themselves with Russian arms. Another lasting legacy of the failed regime of Obama.
