Iran Promises to ‘Annihilate’ Israel in New Book
When the Iran deal was announced last month, US President Barack Obama said “it is possible to change” while referencing Iran’s threats to “eradicate Israel,” and called for a “different path” of “tolerance” from the Islamic regime.
But now, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has published a new book this week – on the topic of outwitting the US and destroying Israel.
The book, entitled “Palestine,” is only available in Iran, the New York Post reported Saturday – but an Arabic translation is reportedly in the works. It lists Khamenei as “the flagbearer of Jihad to liberate Jerusalem” – and justifies the eradication of the Jewish state not as “European” anti-Semitism, but as an outcropping of “well-established Islamic principles.”
One of these principles is the idea that land conquered by Muslims cannot ever be ceded to non-Muslims – a principle which, in Islamist ideology, justifies the takeover of any number of modern-day countries, spanning from Europe to China.
Khamenei places conquering the Jewish state at an even higher level, the Post says – as the “ally of the American Great Satan,” for acts of war which brand it a “hostile infidel,” and for “Judaizing” the Jewish holy city of Jerusalem, which Khamenei insists is “Islam’s third holy city.”
