Fars News Agency: Israel's military attack on Iran, including 2 screens and 8 step. The first step in this plan was the only of the first screen of the Israeli military attack on Iran is speech and full description of the attack took the appropriate steps 8 will be released.
Note how it starts: Israel's military attack on Iran...
All they are saying after that is how Iran would presumably REACT or RESPOND to an ISRAELI ATTACK.
Did you miss that?
The title of this thread and the opening post imply that the Ayatollah suddenly threatens all Jews with destruction. It somehow forgets to mention the small contextual fact that this rhetoric would apply IF ISRAEL ATTACKED IRAN.
While I do not agree with even that sentiment (and I am certainly NOT an apologist to the Tehran Theocrats), I think that quoting like that, leaving out the very starting words of the article referred (which place all the raging and sabre-rattling in context) is at best unethical journalism and low style propaganda at worst.
TEL AVIV — Tensions between Israel and Iran are on the rise after a group of top Israeli leaders engaged in a round of saber-rattling on Thursday and Iran’s Supreme Leader answered on Friday with a pledge to "remove" Israel.
On December 11, 2006, at the "International Conference to Review the Global Vision of the Holocaust" in Tehran, Ahmadinejad said: “The Zionist regime will be wiped out soon the same way the Soviet Union was, and humanity will achieve freedom”, and elections should be held among “Jews, Christians and Muslims so the population of Palestine can select their government and destiny for themselves in a democratic manner”.
On Israel's 60th birthday, Ahmadinejad said:
Those who think they can revive the stinking corpse of the usurping and fake Israeli regime by throwing a birthday party are seriously mistaken. Today the reason for the Zionist regime's existence is questioned, and this regime is on its way to annihilation."
Ahmadinejad also stated that Israel "has reached the end like a dead rat after being slapped by the Lebanese." Later, he said: "The Zionist regime is dying," and "The criminals imagine that by holding celebrations (...) they can save the Zionist regime from death." Ahmadinejad also stated that "They should know that regional nations hate this fake and criminal regime and if the smallest and briefest chance is given to regional nations they will destroy (it)".
In a speech broadcast on IRINN on September 18 and 23, 2008, Ahmadinejad stated, in regard to the idea of Greater Israel being dead, that:
I would like to declare that the idea of "smaller Israel" is also dead. The very notion of Israel is dead, but they are lagging behind the times. Just like the idea of Greater Israel died 30 years ago, and they did not realize this, and have continued to perpetrate crimes for 30 years... Today, I say to them: The idea of smaller Israel is dead.
In a public address on IRINN TV on June 2, 2008, Ahmadinejad stated:
The Zionist regime has lost its raison d'être. Today, the Palestinians identify with your name Khomeini, your memory, and in your path. They are walking in your illuminated path and the Zionist regime has reached a total dead end. Thanks to God, your wish will soon be realized, and this germ of corruption will be wiped off.
In May 2011, after a protest in which 12 Palestinians were killed, Ahmadinejad said on television "... like a cancer cell that spreads through the body, this regime infects any region. It must be removed from the body," according to a report from Agence France Presse

Wasn't the leader of Iran supposed to have said this a few years ago but it was the media twisting the words around to bring hate upon Iran?
Im wondering if the comments made by the Ayatollah are in direct relation to Obamas executive order he just signed. It freezes all Iranian assets in the US, including all Iranian government assets as well as all assets held by the Iranian Central Bank.

Clearly, to put out information that a country wants to kill "all Jews" produces the opinion that they must be "madmen". The truth is that only a relatively small network of extremely wealthy, atheist Jews is behind all this. The good Jewish people all over the world should be up in arms about how their race has been, and is being used.
So you are stating the Ayatollah is in fact a closet Jew? The Ayatollah is the one who made the statements most recently and Ahmadenijad over the course of his Presidency.
Feel free to use the link to the Farsnews site, which is owned and run by the IRG, who in turn answer directly to the Ayatollah.
Unless you are insinuating that the people in the IRG and those who run Farsnews are all closet jews perpetrating some huge conspiracy?
The statments came directly from the Ayatollahs mouth.
They were placed on Iranian government website.
What more do you want? I am amazed that people are still trying to dismiss what he said and spin it. Although based on Iranian actions in the past I guess the blame anyone and everyone tactic iran uses was bound to fool people who follow them.
