The article reports:
An Iranian newspaper tied to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei recently boasted that the U.S. has “rejected” Israel over the past three months. This belief could have disastrous consequences. The author writes that the only “obstacle” remaining is the Saudi Royal Family and once it falls, Israel can be destroyed.
“It can be said that within the last 60 years, this is the first time that the Zionist regime, since its illegal inception, has had to endure rejection by the West over its vision and interest in the region,” wrote Sadollah Zarei, according to a translation by Reza Kahlili.
The article points out some of the recent events that have fueled the belief that America is no longer supporting Israel, such as the leak from the Obama Administration that Israel had made a secret agreement with Azerbaijan to use Azerbaijan’s airbases to strike Iran.
The article details some recent statements from the former governor of Kish Province and pro-Khamenei strategist, Alireza Forghani, outlining the strategy for killing the Jewish people.
The article concludes:
This genocidal madness was endorsed by Ayatollah Mesbah-Yazdi, an influential hardline cleric. Reza Kahlili reports that he recently ruled that all Israelis who did not oppose the country’s “vicious crimes” are legitimate targets. Mesbah-Yazdi has written in support of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons and one of his disciples issued a fatwa in 2006 justifying their use.
Policymakers need to recognize that public tensions between the U.S. and Israel and displays of American weakness reinforce the regime’s beliefs. In The Coming Is Upon Us, the regime uses quotes from U.S. officials stating that there is no viable military option against Iran as proof that prophecy is being fulfilled.
No good comes from making Iran believe that the U.S. isn’t interested in defending Israel.
Israel is THE country in the Middle East that actually practices freedom of religion. It is a democracy and does not terrorize or enslave its people. It is one of the few countries in the region that shares basic American values. Israel represents freedom in the Middle East. America needs to make sure her support for Israel is unwavering and extremely obvious to Israel’s enemies.
