Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency and Tasnim News Agency reported that Brig.-Gen. Hossein Salami, the deputy commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), recently remarked that last year’s nuclear deal
“was the cheapest way to achieve Iran’s goals and interests.” And, that Iran’s military was poised to attack Israel, saying “the opportunity to destroy Israel is now better than ever.”
Salami declared that Iran has “more than 100,000 missiles are ready to fly from Lebanon” to fire on the “occupied land” controlled by Israel.
“Today, the grounds for the annihilation and collapse of the Zionist regime are [present] more than ever.
“If the Zionists make a wrong move, all the occupied territories will come under attack from dedicated fighters and, God willing, the territories will be liberated.”
“By using advanced means of communication and in cyberspace, general campaigns can be formed by Muslim students based on the opposition to the policies of the US and the Zionist regime of Israel so that when needed, millions of young Muslim students create a big movement in the Islamic world.”
And, Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, reiterated this sentiment accusing the West of exploiting the differences between Sunni and Shi’ite Islamists, encouraging Islamists throughout the world to unite. He 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. We stand with the dispossessed Palestinian nation.”
Keep in mind, these are the same leaders who worked hand in hand with Barack Obama to ensure that Iran would receive billions of dollars in “aid” to “slow” it’s nuclear program. A plan most of Congress refused to stop, and for which both Obama and those in Congress are guilty of treason.
