Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif stressed Tehran’s readiness to cooperate with other regional actors to establish a “united front” against Israel, the regime-aligned Tasnim News Agency reported on Wednesday.

“We are ready to cooperate with all friends that believe in the necessity of forming a united front against the Zionist enemy and against divisive attempts,” Zarif said.

According to the report, his comments were made during a meeting in Tunis with Rashid Al-Ghannushi, the leader of Tunisia’s Islamist Ennahda Party.

In related comments on Wednesday, Brigadier General Mohsen Kazzemeini, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps’ senior commander in the province of Tehran, said that Iran would continue to expand its military capabilities until it brought about the collapse of Israel.

“They [the United States and Israel] should know that the Islamic Revolution will continue enhancing its preparedness until it overthrows Israel and liberates Palestine,” Kazzemeini told military personnel gathered for an extensive drill in the Iranian capital on Wednesday.

“And we will continue defending not just our own country, but also all the oppressed people of the world, specially those countries that are standing on the forefront of confrontation with the Zionists,” continued Kazzemeini.

Meanwhile, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, met on Wednesday with Hassan Nasrallah, the Secretary General of Iran’s Lebanese terror proxy Hezbollah to discuss regional developments.

In the meeting, Amir-Abdollahian urged “vigilance” on the part of all regional countries in confronting the Jewish state. “All countries in the region should be vigilant in the face of conspiracies by the Zionist regime; and Muslim countries must take care not to be consumed by the flames of war, extremism and terrorism because of imprudence on the part of certain parties,” said Amir-Abdollahian.

Nasrallah, for his part, praised Tehran’s role in the region and accused Israel of being destructive.

    What will Iran do with a hundred billion dollars? What will Germany and France do with hundrds of thousands of Islamic refugees some of whom may well be sent by ISIL to Europe’s shores? The EU doesn’t care as long s Isrel is the main target, but Divine Providence may have other plans.

    the west has become a bunch of chickens I would like to see Israel say they will do everything to bring down the Nazi government of Iran for a start

  • schm0e

    Look up, Israel, for your redemption draws near.

  • Robert.Weintraub

    I thought Zarif was supposed to be one of the more liberal Iranian officials that our President is touting as a leader of the new and friendlier Iran.

  • zadimel

    Where are all the comments?

  • David Goshen

    The dangers of Iran to Israel are becoming more evident.
    Iran continues its suppressing of neiboring countries
    which it obviously hopes to use them in attacks on Israel to execute the overrunning of Israel.Will be interesting to see how the USA will react .Will be like the period prior to the 6day war.Plenty of talking and we will be left to to fight it out alone.It is completely clear that Obama will do nothing.If we will be attacts it will be the start of the first large Nuclear War in the Middle East but this will come as no surprise to anyone!

    ???? G-d forbid, how much writing on the wall will it take. Eventually there’s going to be one of two endings.

  • Dobby

    political chatter, rhetoric.
    The military might of Israel and the US help make impossible any plans for Iran.
    In a few years, Iran will turn into a democratic state.
    Iran’s youth set up in favor of the West. Behind it – the future.

  • From other news I have read today, the whole Syrian war has been a side show for IRAN. Iran practically controls Turkey, Syria, Lebanon and now Yemen. IRAN has been planning this for so long and OBAMA has simply co-operated. This morning I read, ISIS are now handing out Gold Dinar minted in Saudi. The markets have just dropped and gold & silver appear to be the only form of currency worth investing in. IRAN is determined to start WWIII and I believe ISRAEL must now intervene and perhaps aught to have done so earlier rather than wasting her time on peace talks with so called palestinians. Nothing is more important than defeating ISLAM in both Iran and other Islamic nations. I note El Sisi has closed 27,000 mosques in Egypt – Italy’s Aggipp has located gas off Egyptian shores. Israel should have retained the Sinai was it ’67 or 73?

  • Fay Poliak

    This statement from the Iranian regime is pretty straight forward- what about this does the Western world , specifically the White House not understand?

  • This man is Mr. Obama’s newest ally. I sincerely hope that all of the Jews who voted for the most anti semitic President in US history are extremely happy at the prospect that the State of Israel will be destroyed: (God forbid)

    Where are the eleven comments?

  • zadimel

    From its beginnings the savagery of the Iranian anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activities has continued unabated through its proxies. People like Zarif and a senior commander of the Revolutionary Guards will never have the time to bring about the “collapse of Israel.” Indeed, with Israel’s 200-400 nuclear devices, the anti-Jewish and anti-Israel bunch will have to be extremely careful to avoid their collapse.

  • Lauren Goldman

    And these are the ‘people’ this country wants a nuclear deal with. The inmates are truly running the asylum. Every iranian government official should have Taqiyyah as a surname.

  • Max Genghis Cohen

    While Mohammad Javad Zarif is mobilizing all of Islam to destroy the Zionist peril, the forces of ISIS will be chopping off Iranian heads because that’s what ISIS does.

  • Martin Solomon

    It would be wonderful to bunker bust the mullahs and the Iranian Revolution Guard, and thus wipe them out in one night.

  • ironbutterfly

    Javad Zarif, you and your ayatooooolas will overthrow yourself.
    The cycle, the circle, is closing.
    In 1978 YOU started the cycle of worldwide islamic terrorism.
    Every cycle has a beginning and the end.
    ALL the signs are, that the end of this cycle is approaching.
    YOU and all the ayatoulahs will be tried in the court of justice for the crimes you committed against iranian people, and for spreading islamic terrorism around the world.

  • montlasky

    This is the expected bonus for people who would like to take over the world with nuclear capability, who are supporting surrogate terrorists and who have a stated goal of destroying the Big Satan US and the little Satan, Israel.
    We all stand by and let them say what they like which will soon turn into “do as we like” and we gave it to them on a silver platter!
    Appeasement is a disatarous method of keeping the Wolf at bay. It is a temporary measure that ends in disaster for the “appeaser”
    Israel is in the cross hairs of this appeasement and the World couldn’t care less.
    Israel is alone and will have to defend itself by whatever means. The rest of the World will look after themselves if the have the desire to do so!

  • Poor old men – I suppose it was always too late for them to read the Bible? Just as it was for Mr Hitler?

    A Warning to all the Countries that pretend to destroy Israel For the Lord God of Abraham Isac and Moses as well ours will gather you all in the Valley of Armageddon and will Will crash everyone of you till nothing is left of you .

  • SHmuel HaLevi

    Lucky folk over there in Iran.
    So far Israel is posting a speechster and cardboard prop red line painter leading Oslo generalitos.
    Once that layer is moved aside, and it will, then we WILL lead the dance to come.

    Since there was an error in the comment area for the item shown below I have to comment in this spot.
    Thank you for your understanding.

    “Holocaust Denier David Irving Spurs Outrage Over Concentration Camp Tours”
    Here is my comment to this item:

    This creep is denying the Holocaust but he is not below using it to profit from it. He is taking “visitors” to the old Concentration Camps in Poland and other places, and will let his guests “make up their own minds” about those “sites”. Maybe they will decide that these are famous vacation spots like the French Riviera or Baden Baden. Maybe they will observe the lovely sandy beaches and fancy hotels crowding those areas he is visiting.
    I am too disgusted for words, and I hope that there will be others who will be able to provide better comments to this article.
