Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatolla Khameini has laid out the legal and religious justifications for annihilating Israel and killing “all the Jews”. What is most shocking in this is that nobody seems to care. It made no headlines, and barely a ho-hum was heard around the world.
The concept is not new; Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been declaring the necessity to “rid the world of the Zionist entity” for years. But the real power in Iran lies with the Mullahs, and Khameini’s statement brought the level of rhetoric to a new and dangerous level.
Khameini’s doctrine includes destroying Israel’s assets at home and abroad, and the (genocide) murder of Jewish people worldwide, including in North America.
According to the Iranian website Alef, Khameini called Israel a danger to Islam, and claimed that there is “(islamic) jurisprudential justification to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel . . . and in that, the Islamic government of Iran must take the helm.”
Never has the message been made clearer. The article, which was written by Iranian analyst and strategist Alireza Forghani, whose position lies firmly in Khameini’s camp, is now being carried on most state-owned sites, including the Revolutionary Guards’ Fars News Agency…
Although Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned against irresponsible “Iran chatter,” US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta publicly estimated that Israel would attack Iran by June.
Iran has taken the bait. In a major speech last Friday, Khamenei announced that Iran will support anyone, whether it is a nation or independent group, which attacks the “cancerous tumor” of Israel. Almost immediately, Pakistan jumped into the fray. A European diplomat stationed in Pakistan, said that if Israel attacks, Islamabad will have no choice but to support any Iranian retaliation. With this statement, the unknown diplomat expanded the theater of conflict and intensified the fear of another world war (note that Pakistan has nuclear weapons and Israel is presumed to).
