Any new war in the Middle East “will lead to the eradication of the Zionist regime,” the head of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps declared on Thursday, according to the semi-official state news agency Fars.

Israel — Maj. Gen, Mohammad Ali Jafari asserted to reporters in Tehran — saw “a part of the resistance front’s power during the 33-day and 22-day wars (the Second Lebanon War and Operation Cast Lead) and today that the great resistance front has been formed, this word has been proven.”

“The fate of the resistance front is interwoven and they all stand united and if Israel attacks a part of it, the other component of the front will help it,” Jafari claimed.

Jafari’s comments came as Lebanon stood on a knife’s edge amid the ongoing political intrigue surrounding Prime Minister Saad Hariri and following the recent launch of a missile from Yemen at Riyadh — an “act of war” that Saudi Arabia blamed on Iran-backed Hezbollah.

In an interview published last week by the Saudi newspaper Elaph, the chief of staff of the Israeli military, Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot, said the IDF had no intention of initiating an offensive against Hezbollah in Lebanon, and accused Iran of seeking to escalate tensions there.

Meanwhile, Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quoted on Thursday by the semi-official state news agency Mehr as calling Israel a “cancerous tumor” that “should be fought against.”

“Wherever there is a need for our presence, we will provide help and are not afraid to say so,” Khamenei stated at a conference in the Iranian capital. “We will have no inhibitions when confronting arrogant powers.”

    Jeremiah 31-38 is not related whatsoever to the subject, Ted. Ezekiel 38:18-23 refers to one specific attacker (Gog) and one specific time (when my people Israel are living in safety), not the “(a)nyone” that you allege in your post. Are there passages that more directly support your “anyone … will be eradicated… catastrophically” hypothesis?

    good. lets hope they make good on that eradication.

    Iran resists the IMF and globalist control. The media will tell us they are evil, yet they are surrounded by wars that we started. One cannot blame them for being defensive. I don’t really believe the media BS about Iran sponsoring terror groups. The only terror group that is active is the CIA!

    Bellicosity is the Arabs best weapon.
    Propaganda for the masses of mindless maggots.
    A catastrophic attack on Israel would be apocalyptic for Iran and its Arab proxies and they know it.
    Moonscape with no President Obama to save them.

    I seems that the enemies of the Jewish people will never learn. Psalm 121:

    I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
    My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.
    He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
    indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.
    The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
    the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.
    The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
    the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.
