Iranian official: Iran still committed to “full annihilation” of Israel

It really doesn’t get much clearer than this:

Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said threats and pressures cannot deter Iran from its revolutionary causes and ideals, and stressed that the Iranian nation will remain committed to the full annihilation of the Zionist regime of Israel to the end.

Addressing a defense gathering here in Tehran on Sunday, General Firouzabadi said that nations should realize the threats and dangers posed by the Zionist regime of Israel.

He reiterated the Iranian nation and Supreme Leader’s emphasis on the necessity of support for the oppressed Palestinian nation and its causes, and noted, “The Iranian nation is standing for its cause that is the full annihilation of Israel.”

In a 2009 interview, journalist Jeffery Goldberg talked about the inability of many in the West to understand the mindset of terrorist groups and the countries that sponsor them: “People in the United States find it hard to understand how people in Hamas and Hezbollah think … It’s alien to us. The feverish racism and conspiracy mongering, the obscurantism, the apocalyptic thinking – we can’t relate to that.” Later in the interview, he continued, “Just because a belief sounds ridiculous to you doesn’t mean it’s not sincerely held … I think it’s best to err on the side of taking people at their word.”

Time and time again, Iran has publicly said it seeks Israel’s destruction. It would be folly not to take Iran at its word. Israel already does; she can’t afford not to. The question is: will the rest of the world follow suit?

    My Lord sits on His throne in the 3rd Heaven. Satan sits on his throne in the second Heaven. The Throne of David will soon be Jerusalem again. The Temple described by Ezekiel will soon be built too. The Dome of the Rock has an alien inscription carved in the rock on the other side of the earth. I’m not worried about Israel’s enemies being successful at all. They will lose by the hand of GOD. The Scriptures will be fulfilled as it is written. It is 2012 and expect changes in the earth. The Good Shepherd will watch over His people.

    God’s chosen people are under God’s protection
    …perhaps Iran is so named to testify ‘I ran from I Am…He Is rael! Too bad someone hasn’t invented a device to send nukes back whence they came…that would make them obsolete real fast! Standing with Israel:)

    I am so angry and mad at Iran for their stupidity to insult Israel. I pray that their rockets that face Israel will point back at Iran, However we must pray for our enemy that hurt every Jewish.

    I do not stand for Israel only, but also stand for the one standing for Israel. Repent neighboring middle east or you will find yourself fighting against God himself.

    Iran can not wipe Israel out of the map.

    And I will plant them upon there land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of there land wich I have given them, saith the Lord thy God.
    Amos 9:15

    Most of my countrymen DO NOT fully understand, and many of them don’t care , what is going on in Israel. I do because I have read the Nev’im and also the B’rit Hadashah concerning end times. I grew up with jewish classmates and could not figure out why I enjoyed being around them until March 2011. I found I am Jewish on my fathers side, and am SO proud of it. I have two flags in my possession One red, white, and blue the other blue and white. I would give my life for either. Psalm 122:6
