In an interview with Iran’s Jahan News, Ali Shirazi, Ayatollah Khamenei’s representative in the Revolutionary Guards’ naval force, said Wednesday that, were Israel to attack the Islamic Republic, it would take only 24 hours for Iran to destroy the country in retaliation.

“If a war with Israel does happen, it wouldn’t be a long one, and it would benefit the entire Muslim world,” Ali Shirazi said.

Meanwhile, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, told a group of  “young gifted talents” Wednesday that “The Iranian nation has never bowed to pressure and never will, and this is the cause of enemy’s fury,” according to the Fars News Agency.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has faced a range of pressures including political, security, military, economic as well as sanctions, though the Iranian nation has not only neutralized these pressures through resistance, but has become stronger,” The Fars News Agency also quoted him as saying.

    For at least two reasons the Iranians themselves must know these retaliatory threats are nonsense:

    1) Even if the retaliation threat were credible, what could Iran possibly do to Israel in retaliation that would be worse then Iran dropping a nuke on Israel?

    2) If Iran had the capability of destroying Israel the Mullahs would have already ordered it.

  • My wish for 5773 is that the “The satanic Islamic Republic of Iran” goes up in smoke. The Iranians have become the most evil of nations in the entire world. Not even the Arabs have stated in the UN that Israel must be wiped off from the Map of the World. Well actually I don’t mean all the Iranian people, I mean all the Ayatollahs, all the Clerics, all the Military Officers,including all Naval Officers, and not forgetting the dreaded Revolutionary Guards. May they all burn in hell.
