Rather than becoming more moderate — as promised by the Obama administration during its marketing of the July 2015 Iran nuclear deal — the Iranian regime is now “far more dangerous” than it was when it agreed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with six world powers, a former top Israeli diplomatic official said on Thursday.

Recent hostile rhetoric by top Tehran regime officials — including Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s call for the destruction of Israel — shows Iran is seeking “continuing conflict and escalation,” ex-Foreign Ministry Director General Dore Gold — currently the president of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs — said.

On Thursday, as reported by The Algemeiner, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan declared that “liberating Quds (Jerusalem) and destroying the Zionist tumor is the main duty of Muslims.”
