Iran’s Rafsanjani Reiterates ‘Israel Will Be Wiped Off The Map’

Iran's Expediency Council head says Israel, an "alien presence" will be "wiped off the map" some day.

Once again, a top Iranian leader is speaking out and vowing the Jewish State will be obliterated. However, in the meantime the West makes a lot of money by taking advantage of its existence, he says.

“The presence of the Israeli regime is temporary,” Iranian Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani assured the Hezbollah-linked Al Ahd news website in an interview on Monday.

“Eventually one day this alien forged existence that has been forced into the body of an ancient nation and an historical region will be wiped off the map.”

Rafsanjani is a former ‘centrist’ Iranian president and is the current head of the country’s Expediency Discernment Council, the advisory body to Iran’s Supreme Leader. He is known to be a longtime friend of current President Hassan Rouhani.

Rafsanjani told the interviewer that “even Tel Aviv knows well that Iran is not after acquiring nuclear weapons,” the Iranian state news service IRNA reported.

However, he said, by preventing an accord between Iran and the West, “the Zionists wish to keep Iran engaged in problems permanently, knowing that the Islamic Republic’s political, economic, cultural and propagation status will all improve after such an agreement.”

Rafsanjani said he believes that one day “the forged and temporary Israeli entity, which is an alien existence forged into the body of a nation and region,” will be “wiped off the map.

“Now when, and how that will happen, depends on the conditions which are rapidly changing. Those conditions can be provided very soon if the usefulness period of Israel will expire,” he said. “It might as well take very long, as both Israel and its supporters are trying their best to extend its existence period till a very remote future.”

He also said, however, that because Israel is a “multipurpose stronghold” those who protect Israel can benefit greatly.

“Of course they spend a lot for protecting Israel, but they are still gaining greater benefits from its existence. One way to be benefited from Israel is that the West is selling arms to the Arab world on that pretext very easily, and pretending it is doing them a great favor,” he said.

    I’m afraid for the people of the Middle East. The Jews have nowhere to go and will not yield without inflicting massive casualties upon the Arab population. Why?

    The U.S. Will never yield to the destruction of Israel. We Americans tend to make great sacrifices for our friends who to advance democracy. WW III will be won by free people. Massive casualties will be inflicted. Why?

    All in the name of Religion. Religion is the opiate of the masses and does not lead to God. It leads mankind towards its destruction.

    I hate the thought of all this destruction.

  49. Tim Benton says:

    Funny, if Israel ever said anything like this about the Persian people, or about Iran, we would hear of the UN convening a emergency session, the Europeans would scream in condemnation, the liberals in the US would raise their ire at Israel. But Iran does it, no one says a word, Europe is silent, it is their wish too I think, and the UN does nothing, and the US liberal fools, they actually stupidly want to make a deal with this evil regime.

    The more you try the more it proves who ever god u trust in is unable.

  88. god will wipe iran off the face of the earth……………….

  89. A lot of Christians say that they love and support Israel, but the underlying truth is that they love Israel's existence so that their end-time prophecies can come true. I'm not totally convinced that they feel the same way about Jews who live there. There was a resident in the building where I live who was all about supporting Israel, however, things she said often had a definite anti-Semitic view. While it is true that she was from Ohio and had a pronounced conservative view of things, sometimes when she would talk I had a feeling that she had been reading 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.' As soon as she said, "The Jews do", or "The Jews are", whatever, it was time to end the conversation because anti-Semitism has such a convoluted logic (sic) that rationality ceases.

  90. Amen. The G-D of Israel will wipe it's enemies off. Make peace with Israel before it's too late.

  91. Thank you James for standing with Israel.

  92. Abe Strahl says:

    this madman does not realize or care that there will be no more iran and probably syria as well….what a sick puppy..
    may he rest with the pigs…fitting

  93. I agree with you that the last American election result was a stupid mistake, with certain Jewish participation, But let's not go to far regarding the World's destruction. Before it will happens, the loud mouth imbeciles like this one above and the rest will disappear from this Planet.
