Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Thursday in a televised speech marking the Iranian New Year that if Israel attacked its nuclear facilities, Iran would “raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground.”

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei also said the threat of an Israeli attack is “not big enough to stand out among the Iranian nation’s enemies,” according to Reuters.

Khamenei’s remarks came as U.S. President Barack Obama visited Israel, where Obama said Thursday that America “will do what we must to prevent a nuclear Iran.” Obama in Israel added, however, that the U.S. remains focused on diplomacy and sanctions as the preferred solutions to the Iranian threat before a military option is necessary.

Talks between Iranian officials and officials from the six global powers—the U.S., France, Britain, Russia, China and Germany—will continue in April in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

    Yesterday I showed my students in English Composition I at College of Lake County a You Tube video of Paul Joseph Goebbels, the Reichmaster Propangandist of the Third Reich, speaking to a large crowd of Nazi sympathizers in the mid-1930s. Referring to the former Soviet Union, on January 21, 1945, that diminutive man, perhaps five feet, five inches in height, of slight stature, a PhD in Literature, a womanizer stated the following in his last essay, entitled “Die Urheber des Unglucks der Welt” (“The Creators of the World’s Misfortunes”), published by Das Reich: “. . .[t]he enemy clearly says that its goal in this war is to put the total domination of Jewry over the nations of the earth under legal protection, and to threaten even a discussion of this shameful attempt with the death penalty. . . . The deceived nations of the earth may still lack the knowledge they need, but we will bring it to them. How will the Jews stop that in the long run? They believe their power rests on sure foundations, but it stands on feet of clay. One hard blow and it will collapse, burying the creators of the misfortunes of the world in its ruins.” And yesterday Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme Commander of Iran, threatened to “raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground” if “Israel attacked the Iranian nuclear facilities.” In Tehran on national television, on February 16, 2013, Khamenei also averred that the United States could not stop Iran from producing nuclear weapons. Threats of destruction abound in Khamenei’s speeches; moreover, they have been echoed in President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for the last four years. The connection between Goebbel’s last speech, indeed, his last published words, and the incendiary verbiage evoked by the Iranian leaders becomes even more fractious in Khamenei’s allegorical reference: “ferocious Zionist wolves who digest the Palestinian people” (Non-aligned Movement summit [NAM], 30 Aug. 2012). One must ingest the latter vitriol as patently authentic anti-Semitic, anti-Zionistic propaganda, so closely aligned with the Reichmaster Propagandist that any misunderstanding is utterly impossible. Khamenei’s intention is clear, evident, sinister: pure evil. Will anyone stop him from achieving the outcome that the Third Reich fell just a little short of?

  • Hi my Hebrew Brothers & Sisters,

    Take heed the supplication.

    The Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s speech to attack Israel with nuclear weapons is another lie from him who is a cohort of satan the diabolic enemy of Jews and Christians.

    Satan whose wisdom is ZERO will be defeated by God, first will be his cohorts and next him (satan) the father of lies.

    To say the least, Oh Israel, the time has NOW come that you must attack Iran, attack her nuclear facilities and fulfill the prophecies of old to prepare the way for the return of your messiah before it is too late oh my Jewish friends.

    Learn from the lessons of fig tree, learn from the lessons of the second world war and learn from your own precision warfare which you oh Israel fought with God on your side and saw victories over and against your overwhelming enemy nations since May the 14th 1948.

    Oh Israel, you must now cut off the head of the snake, attack Iran now so as not to regret later. Go by your inner peace and with advise from your Rabbis.

    Next year in Israel, Oh Yes Oh Israel, destroy the symbol of satanism too, the abomination to the God of Israel standing in the Holy Land blaspheming the God of your fore fathers day and night which is the DOME OF ROCKS.

    Your God, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob who fought for you and defeated your enemies in the Bible times is still on your side and will be forever, AMEN.

    This ayatollah has said many things over the years. To keep his job, he has to produce so much virulent anti-Israel rhetoric that the am rav in Iran and the Moslem world want to hear. Has it ever occurred to anyone that his behavious is due to a disease called Potzius Minimus?
