An Iranian professor is publicly criticizing the Ayatollahs’ rhetoric on Israel, asking who entrusted them to destroy the Jewish state, Al Monitor reports.
“Iran has explicitly stated many times that it wants to destroy Israel,” outspoken analyst Sadegh Zibakalam said during a speech at Islamic Azad University in Mashhad, Tehran. “None of the other countries that have a nuclear program have stated that they want to destroy a country.”
“I don’t know who entrusted Iran with destroying Israel, Has the United Nations given this mission to Iran?” he asked.
According to the Iranian Students’ News Agency, the issue of Israel was raised as Zibakalam addressed the pressure and sanctions Iran has faced over its nuclear program.

Iran’s Supreme Leader: Jihad Will Continue Until America is No More
God don't you start now.
When you see Iranians chanting every other day about the great Satan / lesser Satan they are not referring to Pakistan.
One day after senior Israeli government officials raised eyebrows at an international conference by remaining in the room when Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif took the stage to speak, Zarif told a German television interviewer that Tehran could restore diplomatic relations with Israel in the event of a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. “Once the Palestinian problem is solved the conditions for an Iranian recognition of Israel will be possible,” Zarif said in the interview Monday.
How to destroy Israel is the name of a new book published in Iran by the Khorasan Central Bureau of Islamic Guidance and Culture. It was released during the 13th Mashad Int'l Book Fair, and was written by a group of University of Tehran clerics and alumni.
Mohammad Ibrahimnia, a cleric and researcher present at the Book Fair in an interview with the media was proud to announce that the book has been awarded the "book of the year award".
The book in seven chapters covers topics such as:
"features of Israeli thought"
"unusual blessings of Israel"
"the crimes and punishment of the Jewish tribe"
"Quran's warnings to muslims about this tribe"
"The weaknesses of the Israelites"
"Methods of confronting this tribe"
He further added that the contents and title of the book are a homage to Imam Khomeini's fatwa who declared "Israel must be destroyed". Ibrahimnia remarked that abandoning Khomeini's command is considered like abandoning the other mandatory commands of Sharia that must be observed (such as fasting and praying).
He said: "The glorious Quran warns us of this tribe more than any other tribe on earth, and contrary to people's beliefs, the zionists are the remnants of the same old tribe that the Quran warns us of."
