    Default Iran’s General Salami Says Destroying Israel ‘Achievable Goal’

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Iran’s top Revolutionary Guards commander, Major General Hossein Salami, warned on Monday that destroying arch-enemy Israel was an “achievable goal”.

    “This sinister regime must be wiped off the map and this is no longer … a dream (but) it is an achievable goal,” he said, quoted by the Guards’ Sepah news site.

    Four decades on from Iran’s Islamic revolution, “we have managed to obtain the capacity to destroy the imposter Zionist regime”, he said.

    Salami’s comments, while not unusual for Iranian officials, come amid particularly heightened international tensions over Iran’s nuclear program and a series of incidents that have raised fears of a confrontation between Tehran and its other main regional rival, Riyadh.

    The United States, which withdrew from the Obama-negotiated JCPOA agreement between Iran and world powers in 2018, has imposed a campaign of “maximum pressure” — with vocal support from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    Salami’s comments were [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] by the MEHR news agency.

    The official IRNA agency also carried his remarks, but placed more emphasis on his assertion that Iran was growing stronger and would finally beat its foes despite “hostility” towards it.

    Iran has been consistently hostile towards Israel since its 1979 revolution, and Tehran openly supports anti-Israeli armed groups including Palestinian Hamas and Lebanon’s Hezbollah.

    In November 2018, leader Hassan Rouhani [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Tehran’s long-held position Israel is “a malignant cancerous tumor that must be removed and eradicated.”

    Rouhani said in an address at an annual Islamic Unity Conference that Israel was a “fake regime” set up by Western countries.

    “One of the ominous results of World War II was the formation of a cancerous tumor in the region,” he said, according to English quotes published a state-affiliated agency.

    Iranian generals routinely express the desire to destroy Israel or claim to be able to wipe out Tel Aviv and General Salami in particular is known for making bold statement of Iranian intent.

    Earlier this month he said Iran has special “hidden” military powers it is ready to unleash at any moment on an unsuspecting world, as Breitbart News [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    Salami offered no evidence to back his claim of the so-called “hidden” powers of military persuasion.

    Instead he warned enemies of his country of secret capabilities of Iran, adding Tehran has significantly enhanced its military power to create threats and problems unknown and unexpected for anyone who opposes it.

    “Our enemies must know that we have increased our capability of creating unknown threats. We have not yet disclosed our main sources of power and what they have seen and we have used so far is a small part of our capacities,” the major general said.

    With tensions high between Israel and Iran, the general who has vowed to “cleanse the planet from the filth” of the United States and Israel has been appointed by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as commander of the hard-line Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

    Brig.-Gen. Hossein Salami was promoted to Major General on Sunday and will replace Maj.-Gen. Mohammed Ali Jafari, who has headed the military force since 2007 and was demoted to the post of commander of the Hazrat-e Baqiatollah Social and Cultural Base, a cultural and educational division of the force.

    “Considering Maj.-Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari’s statement on the necessity of change in IRGC’s (top) command... and given your valuable experience and competence in fulfilling high-level management and various responsibilities in the revolutionary, Jihadi and popular institution of the IRGC, I promote you to the rank of Major General and appoint you as the top commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps,” Khamenei, quoted by Iran’s Fars News, as saying to Salami.

    The 59 year-old general, like most members of the IRGC is a veteran of the Iran-Iraq war and rose through the ranks of the organization, including serving as the former commander of the IRGC’s Aerospace Force.

    There wouldn’t go many days before Iran would also gain nuclear weapons.

    However, the Iranian regime is going to have a hard time convincing the Iranian people to go and sacrifice themselves for a war against Israel, that they don’t want. This of course will be changed if Israel started carpet bombing Iranian cities, but until then the Iranian Army’s motivation won’t be at it’s highest, as Israel will literally fight for their survival, and Iran won’t.

    A war between Iran and Israel will be a waste of human lives, money and time. If just the leaders of the two countries were as eager to negotiate a peace treaty in the Middle East, as they are to start a war.

    The Iranian people don’t hold any grudge against normal Israeli’s as they differentiate between the people and the government. Both countries could learn a lot from each other in many different aspects, but sadly they choose not to.
    In the meanwhile, let’s just hope for peace across the region, and learn to accept and live with each other, despite their differences.

    I do not believe the average citizen in Iran wants this Jihad.
    It is the nut cases in the government and the Ayatollahs.
    Just like they had a revolution against the Shah
    They need another one to take the hard-line Islamist out of power.
    Iran does not just threaten Israel, there goal is Islamic world wide domination.
    Submit or die.

    It would take Israel about a week to destroy Iran. IMHO.

    iran does not really care about their population, the tactics, or the costs............

    they were at war with iraq for 10 years and the casuality rate was estimated at over 1 million on both sides. Iran was willing to use trench warfare and instituted human wave attacks. they endured gas and chemical attacks and now are believed to be stock piling the same stuff as well as developing a nuclear capability.

    they have no problem with conscription and are willing to die........the people are sheep being led to slaughter......and they seem to be fine with the concept of slaughter......be it their own or israel.
    Order without liberty and liberty without order are equally destructive.

    I've watched some videos of Iran lately. The people seem to be happy and living pretty good lives. It's hard to believe they are ruled by these whackos.
