Can we talk about our negotiators on the nuclear deal in the same way that Iran’s leader did about his side? Khamenei said, “Our negotiators did a good job.” Would you make it easier for a country to develop its military capacity when it continued to refer to you as “the great Satan?” Would you vote to approve an agreement with them when they predicted that Israel will be gone in 25 years? By the way, Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism around the world. Wasn’t our policy NOT to negotiate with terrorist states? It doesn’t make sense.
1. Khamenei Predicts Israel Gone in 25 years
Israel will not exist in another quarter century, Iran’s supreme leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said during a speech this week in Tehran, state-run media report.
2. Outrageous statements
“I’d say (to Israel) that they will not see (the end) of these 25 years,” the Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Khamenei as saying Wednesday at the Imam Khomeini Mosque.
“God willing, there will be no such thing as a Zionist regime in 25 years. Until then, struggling, heroic and jihadi morale will leave no moment of serenity for Zionists,” he said, according to IRNA.
From London, where he is meeting with UK Prime Minister David Cameron, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took the opportunity to reiterate his opposition to the nuclear deal, saying that Khamenei’s words leave its supporters with no “room for illusion.”
“He has made it clear that the U.S. is the Great Satan and that Iran intends to destroy the state of Israel. This will not happen. Israel is a strong country and it will become even stronger,” Netanyahu said in a statement. “However, the conclusion that arises from the remarks of the tyrant in Tehran is that all responsible countries must cooperate in order to stop Iran’s terrorism and aggression which, to my regret, will only increase as a result of the agreement.”
Khamenei said, “We agreed to hold talks with (the Americans) only on the nuclear issue and for particular reasons, and thank God, our negotiators did a good job,” he said.
“Some people insist on disguising this Great Satan as the savior angel. (However), the Iranian nation expelled this Satan (from the country); we must not allow that when we expelled it through the door, it could return and gain influence (again) through the window,” he said. via CNN
