• Iran: We’ve NEVER Talked About Destroying Israel . . . Promise

    Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told NBC News that his country’s leaders have “never” talked about annihilating Israel.

    There’s just one problem.

    Iranian leaders, from former Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Ali Khamenei, the despotic religious Supreme Leader of Iran, have both publicly and unabashedly threatened to destroy Israel.

    In October 2005, just after Ahmadinejad became Iran’s new president he said Israel must be “wiped off the map,” according to the New York Times.

    And as late as November of 2014, Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei tweeted a nine-point plan to destroy the state of Israel:

    B1_LKrrIcAAMAZB.png_largeKhamenei’s Israel annihilation plan was produced very shortly after it was reveal that Obama has sent him a secret letter asking Iran’s Supreme Leader to join in on a nuclear agreement.

    Further refuting Zarif’s claim that Iran “never” talks about destroying Israel is this lovely tweet from Khamenei’s official Twitter account:

    Zarif says he doesn’t know why Jews might view that sort of language as unforgivable.

    As far as a nuclear Iran goes, Zarif says he’s fighting for a deal that would ensure that Iran’s nuclear program “will always remain peaceful.”

    Yeah, right.
