Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, threatened Israel on Friday, saying the Islamic Republic will help any nation or group that confronts the Jewish State, The Associated Press reported.

In remarks to worshippers during Friday prayers in Tehran which were broadcast on state TV, Khamenei said Iran would continue its nuclear program and warned that any military strike by the U.S. would only make Iran stronger.

He affirmed that Iran had provided assistance to terror groups Hizbullah and Hamas, AP reported.

“We have intervened in anti-Israel matters, and it brought victory in the 33-day war by Hizbullah against Israel in 2006, and in the 22-day war” between Hamas and Israel in Gaza, Khamenei was quoted as having said.


So, I would say this is fairly explicit. Is describing Israel as a 'cancerous tumor', and admitting to involvement in Israels conflagrations with Hezbollah and Hamas, AND, throwing in it's support with any party that will see to it that Israel be destroyed, ENOUGH EVIDENCE, yet, that Iran poses a serious threat, perhaps an existential threat, to Israel's wellbeing?

Or shall we throw this into the dustbin and forget what Iran's fanatically religious government represents? The fact that anyone would support a nation like this, which speaks like this, in it's pursuit of nuclear energy in quite unconscionable.

Well, in reality. Everything he says is true.
'Terrorist' and 'Freedom fighter' mean the same thing from different perspectives. Israel has caused nothing but hate and bloodshed since its conception. Oppression of the Palestinian people, Various other terrorist activities in the area,

And now everyone else is pissed because they essentially control everything,
so i don't blame them one bit for wanting to help end Israel, lots of problems in the world stem from that very source.

I think what he said is the truth, he wasn't lieing.

It's just not what you want to hear, Israel (gov) is a cancer, that is a fact.

Read my sig more for clarification.

Khamenei said Israel was a “cancerous tumor that should be cut and will be cut,” and added that the U.S. would suffer defeat and lose standing in the region if it decides to use military force to stop the country’s nuclear program.

“Iran will not withdraw. Then what happens?” he said. “In conclusion, the west’s hegemony and threats will be discredited. The hegemony of Iran will be promoted. In fact, this will be in our service.”

I am wondering.

What financial gain is there if and when The West actually stops Iran's nuke program ?

The sanctions could hurt the sanctioners more than the sanctionees.

The main reason for the sanctions is the nuke program.

Not much else has triggered the recent fervor.

The money agenda might be to get more control of Iran's "inside" economy.

Doesn't Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei threaten Israel on a daily basis?

Throughout his speech he referred to the ZIONIST REGIME not THE JEWISH STATE and large parts of the mainstream media translated it wrong again. It is not the first time.

I'm confused. Are you publicly declaring that you're registered on a site full of ignoramuses? So then that would make you a....? Not trying to be rude. Just wondering.

I'm not sure what he means by Zionist regime. Maybe Israel or maybe just the zionist in power. Whatever it is, he should be allowed to say it. Israel and the US make threats all day everyday and those threats carry a lot more weight too.

No it's not.

Maybe the jews should just drop a small nuke into the religious sector of Teheran, I am sure they know where the Ayatollah lives.
Would shut him up big time.
Even the Russians would secretly appaud.

Very rare for this man to appear on tv and so openly stand up for anything..

they feel a need to directly and abruptly tell the US and Israel to be careful what they instigate.

we must be getting close to there pressure point.

no its not. There are Jewish people and then there is the government of Israel.

Look at Torah Jews. They follow the Torah faithfully and since it says they should not occupy Israel in force, they don't.

Zionism is not synonymous with Judaism. It is a political orientation not a religious or ethnic one.

You are grossly miss informed. Before commenting like that, read or at least fact check your statements.

this is will help explain the difference between Zionist and Jew. There is a HUGE difference and it is usually the one Iranians make. Remember they have the largest Jewish population of any Muslim nation in the world. They don't persecute their Jewish community.

Just a second Buddy! Iran would be within its rights under International Law to pre-emptivly attack Israel as Israel almost daily threatens an attack on Iran. Incidently, Iran has not initiated an attack on another country in over 200 years without being attacked first. Can Israel say that? Iran has signed the NNPT and Israel has refused. Israel has tried to sell a nuke to South Africa increasing the proliferation of nuclear weapons. Iran hasn't even tried to sell or give any chemical or biological weapons to their allies. No one wants Iran to have a nuke but they are surrounded by countries with nukes and it would be prudent to at least develop the technology. Interresting to note that IF they had a nuke they would be pretty much immune to attack.

There is NO way Israel will attack Iran without the support of the US as an unassisted attack on Iran will mean a devastating retallitatory attack which would pretty much destroy much of little Israel. If Israel DARES to use nukes on Iran, Iran will litterally rain missles tipped with chemical and biological warheads upon Israel. Looks to me like Israel will have to get used to a nuclear Iran.

well...the Supreme leader is just swatting back at Israel

for weeks now, Israel has spoken through several channels of news or politicians that spout:

Iran has nukes,
Iran can deliver nukes on American soil,
Iran this-
Iran that....
just about everything sinister imaginable is attached to Iran every two days, from a new voice of the people that Iran is evil, despotic, a rogue state intent on generating nukes and a Regional/ if not World Wide war.

the USA is sanctioning Iran,
to maintain hegemony in the region & eur-asia
to protect the dominance of the petro-dollar, world wide ((Priority # 1))
to perhaps spank Irans nuclear facilities
~just too many factors to list 'em all~

so Israel jabs at and creates propaganda about Iran & little is said
but when Khameini speaks instead of Ahmedineajad, then his words are the cause of all ME conflict/turmoils

the process of creating the Sinister Boogyman, the object of a righteous intervention by the good forces in the world is being played out by both the Israeli and USA Media

Iran is getting painted as Evil, while the other antagonists get a free pass ?
just skewed news, the whole premis is one-sided

hey, i'm not the only one saying this:

by Justin Raimondo, January 30, 2012
~ Antiwar Forum ~

The campaign to lure the US into attacking Iran has one big problem to overcome before the War Party can taste success: the rather obvious fact that such a war would benefit Israel, and not the United States. This is why Israel’s partisans in the US constitute the spearhead of the pro-war agitation, why AIPAC has made this a consistent theme for the past few years, and why the billionaire Sheldon Adelson, aside from funding the Newtster, has poured untold millions into the same project. Hardly a day goes by without some Israeli government official reiterating, once again, that Iran represents an “existential threat” to the Jewish state, and threatening to strike the first blow if Uncle Sam fails to wake up in time, while Israel’s amen corner dutifully echoes the same line. [...]

That this “argument” is based on fantasy – the fantasy that Iran is indeed busy cooking up nukes, and is determined to wipe Israel off the map – is being obscured in a barrage of lies and phony “intelligence” similar to that which dragged us into attacking Iraq. But war propaganda and facts don’t mix: indeed, they are mutually exclusive. The idea behind any effective campaign designed to push us into war is to whip up an emotional storm, and a key part of this hysteria is smearing antiwar writers and politicians as “anti-Semites.” In the America of 2012, where political correctness is the Iron Rule, even the accusation – no matter how unfounded – of racial or religious bigotry is toxic, and the War Party hopes to poison the debate over Iran by injecting it into the discourse.

Is not an act of war by-proxy the same thing as an Iranian military assault.

Yellow bellied cowards do it in the dark

I hope Israel who DO have nukes shut these windbags mouths up for good!

One nice, well placed nuke in Tehran should do the job.

Certainly gets my vote

YAWN !!!!

Here we go again. Rattle the sabre. Blah Blah Blah.

And as expected, stupid idiots on ATS want to nuke Iran turning it into a wonderful 'glass' sculpture.

Then the pro-war grunts wonder why they die when (rumour) all those dirty nukes in USA cities get activated by the muslim 'sleepers'.

And then the pro-war spiritually dead athiests will moan, saying 'What did we do wrong !!!'
