Iran ‘committed to Israel’s annihilation,’ says top general

Israel Hayom:

When Ahmadinejad purportedly said Israel “should be wiped off the map” there were many who argued that the Iranian leader was mistranslated. No such argument can be made regarding the latest comments by the chief of staff of the Iranian armed forces.

When Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad purportedly said that Israel “should be wiped off the map” there were, and still are, many who argue that the Iranian leader was misquoted or mistranslated. No such argument can be made however regarding the latest comments by the chief of staff of the Iranian armed forces.

According to the Iranian Fars news agency, while addressing a defense gathering in Tehran on Sunday, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Maj. Gen. Hassan Firouzabadi stressed that the Iranian nation remains committed to the “full annihilation of the Zionist regime of Israel to the end.”

According to Fars, Firouzabadi “reiterated the Iranian nation and supreme leader’s emphasis on the necessity of support for the oppressed Palestinian nation and its causes,” and noted, “The Iranian nation is standing for its cause that is the full annihilation of Israel.”

  1. This is an important article. The “click to continue” and the “Israel Hayom” link at the top don’t go anywhere except in a loop to this intro page. Please correct. Thanks.

  2. OK. It’s clear now, no mistranslation this time, or maybe the Farsi phrase this time means something different than the “full annihilation of Israel”?

    In the name of sanity, what is there to talk about with Iran?

  3. You’ll still get the ‘Loathsome Georges’ of the World claiming that what the Iranians really said was that “we love Israel, but can someone please tell them to stop bullying us poor Muslims”.
    I remember the time that Galloway had a radio phone-in and a number of callers complained about Iran threatening to ‘wipe Israel off the map’. George responded with the line “do you speak Farsi?” which he repeated over and over to drown out the caller’s frustrated replies. This usually shut the caller up, until George tried the same trick with one cool customer, whose reply to the question was “yes I do” which left George lost for an answer, but in typical Galloway fashion he did what he does best when losing an argument, he cut the caller off, thus proving to all but the most stupid of people, that he’s nothing but a loud-mouthed buffoon.
    Unfortunately there are many fools like him and this latest Iranian rant will have no impact on them!

  4. Let them keep talking. They came up with another stall by saying they will cooperate with inspectors, which they won’t.
