Hossein Salami says Tehran also ‘creating might in Lebanon to fight our enemy from there with all our strength’ and eradicate ‘evil Zionist regime’

(SOURCE)   In a recent speech, the deputy commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) boasted that the “Islamic army in Syria” in the Golan Heights was awaiting orders to eradicate the “evil regime” of Israel.

He also said the Tehran-backed Hezbollah terror group had 100,000 missiles aimed at Israel.

“We are creating might in Lebanon because we want to fight our enemy from there with all our strength,” he stated. “Hezbollah today has tremendous might on the ground that can on its own break the Zionist regime. The Zionist regime has no strategic-defensive depth.”

In the speech for the anti-Israel al-Quds Day in June, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Hossein Salami said that the dangers Israel faces today are greater than at any time in history.

“Today an international Islamic army has been formed in Syria, and the voices of the Muslims are heard near the Golan,” he said. “Orders are awaited, so that… the eradication of the evil regime [Israel] will land and the life of this regime will be ended for good. The life of the Zionist regime was never in danger as it is now.”

Salami stressed that “the Zionist regime constitutes a threat… to the entire Islamic world. That is the philosophy of the establishment of this regime.”

He praised Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who led the 1979 Iranian revolution, for making the destruction of Israel a goal of the regime.

Khomeini “spread the rationale of eradicating Israel as a new notion in the world’s political discourse,” Salami said. “Since then, the Zionist regime is fearful, delusional, and worried.”

Israel has for years warned of Iran’s ongoing attempts to entrench itself in Syria, and has been waging a quiet campaign to prevent Tehran from establishing a new front on its border. That campaign came into the light and shifted into more open conflict in February, when an Iranian drone carrying explosives briefly entered Israeli airspace, before it was shot down. In response Israel launched a counterattack on an air base in Syria, hitting the mobile command center from which the drone had been piloted and killing at least seven members of the IRGC.

Tehran vowed revenge after the T-4 army base strike. On May 10, the IRGC’s al-Quds Force launched 32 rockets at Israel’s forward defensive line on the Golan Heights border. Four of them were shot down; the rest fell short of Israeli territory.

In response, over the next two hours, Israeli jets fired dozens of missiles at Iranian targets in Syria and destroyed a number of Syrian air defense systems. The operation was widely seen as a success in Israel.

But Salami boasted of Iran’s success in launching the rockets, claiming the barrage silenced Israel.

“When the Zionists bombed the T-4 base in Syria and killed some young men, they thought that they would get no reaction. They thought that America’s and England’s support could frighten the resistance front. They thought that no one would respond,” Salami said. “But the response came in the Golan, and dozens of missiles were fired, along with the message ‘If you respond, we will flatten the heart of Tel Aviv into dust.’ They were silent, and did nothing further.”

Iran has been accused by Israel, the Trump administration, Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries of supporting terrorism and instability in the region.

Salami blamed Israel for all the Middle East’s troubles.

“All the problems of the Islamic world stem from the existence of the false, counterfeit, historically rootless, and identity-less regime named Israel,” he said.

On Sunday Syrian air defenses were activated near the T-4 air base, in response to an airstrike on the facility, which Syrian state media attributed to the Israeli military, although as a rule, the Israeli military does not comment on its operations abroad.

  1. Go for it Iran!! Go ahead and attack Israel. Don’t make me laugh. Israel will defeat Iran, no question!!!!!! Iran Revolutionary Guards will be afraid of Israel. I believe Iran will be crybaby to Russia and Turkey. Iran, alone can not beat Israel. Period.

    • Thanks for your comment Jim!

      Iran, Russia, Turkey, all key players in the Ezekiel 38 War, and it seems as though we are that much closer to it happening.

      God bless!

      • Hey brother, how are you? I hope things are well with you. I got a question to ask you. Recently Trump met with Putin of summit meeting. I am wondering does Trump knows about the Bible that very soon Russia will invade the Israel? If I were a President, I would be very extra careful with the Russia government.

        The Bible is real and it is the word of God.

        Some people say that Trump and Putin are against New World Order. I’m not too sure. According to Israel Live New said that it was really Pope Francis’s idea to put Trump and Putin get together of this summit meeting and it was stage. I really don’t know if this were true. I have to be careful what to hear. I weight with pro and con. Conspiracy theories believe Trump is really with elite organization. Trump is fooling Americans. I honestly don’t know what to think. I still waiting for Trump to arrest Hillary Clinton. I really don’t think so. Look at Attorney General, Jeff I forgot his last name, how come he hasn’t arrest Hillary Clinton and Obama? See?

        I do know that Deep State, liberal, and Democrats want WAR with the Russia. Trump says, NO, NO war with the Russia. Trump is not stupid.

        Life has been rather difficult lately, but I am marching along with God by my side, He is my shield, my strength, my provider, and my refuge. I hope and pray that you and your family are well my friend!

        I really don’t know just what President Trump knows about bible prophecy, I do believe that he is a rather new to the faith. But, with that being said, I also know that he has a lot of evangelical Christians by his side, and more likely than not they have informed him of the Ezekiel 38 War. I also don’t think that Trump is so naive as to just befriend Putin without being very cautious.

        Is President Trump for a New World Order? I don’t believe it for one minute! If he was then he would have gone along with President Obama’s plans, he wouldn’t be imposing trade tariffs on other countries, he wouldn’t be against the UN, he wouldn’t be supporting the Jews and Israel, he wouldn’t have moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, he wouldn’t be fighting to build a wall along the U.S. border in the South, etc, etc. We can see the fruit that he bears, his support for Christianity, his insight and knowledge of Islam, and I believe he sees the world attempting to come together into the formation of a One World Government. Like you said, Trump is not a stupid man, he is very intelligent, but he is also a believer in Jesus Christ, I truly believe it!

        As far as Putin and the Pope go, I don’t trust either one of them as far as I can pick them up and throw them! And why hasn’t anything happened to Hilary or Obama? Well, like you said, they are a part of the Deep State, they have a lot of power and control, and President Trump is not only fighting against them but also the Democrats in Congress and the Senate, as well as other Republicans. He is only one man, but I truly believe that God is with him! If God wasn’t standing by his side then we wouldn’t have seen the U.S. Embassy move in Jerusalem, nor would we see the enormous support that he has for Christians, nor would we have seen the restrictions that Trump has put on Muslim immigration in the U.S., just to name a few things.

        Trump is a relatively new Christian, and he is just a man, he will make some mistakes just like we all do, but if he listens to wise counsel, if he follows God’s lead, then he can and will do some righteous things in this world. He has appointed some righteous supreme court justices which will determine the fate of this nation for decades to come, this is a very good thing!

        The problem is that over the past few decades our government has really screwed things up in our country, especially when Obama was president. It’s a very big mess that we are in, not only politically but also socially. Our nation has never before been so divided since the Civil War! This is just another huge mess that Trump has to deal with, let alone all of the negativity, hatred, and opposition from the left in our society. If Trump had it all his way then things would change immediately with no opposition, but that’s not the case, he has to lead us all, not only the right but also the left. There are many, many Americans who believe abortion and gay marriage are our rights and they support them, many, many Americans are not believers in Jesus Christ, and Trump is still their leader as well.

        This is where we find ourselves today, in the middle of a huge mess! It has gotten so bad that it is almost out of control and past the point of no return, and very soon it will be. This is where the world is headed to a point of no return, when things get so bad that there is no way out, then the world will be accepting of the Antichrist! This is where the world is now headed, and this is why I believe that the revealing of the Antichrist couldn’t be too much further away. And if that is the case then the rapture of the church is even that much closer!

        When we see all of these things coming to pass then we know that the time is near, and I believe that if we do see the revealing of the Antichrist then we have missed the rapture of the church! That should tell you where I stand on the issue of a pre, mid, or post tribulation rapture.

        God bless Jim! Maranatha!

      • My belief is Pre Tribulation. Period.

        I’m glad we have a strong President Trump to serve our nation. Finally since Ronald Reagan. George Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama are bunch of jokers. I would say that Obama was/is the number 1 worst, worst President in the US history. Rest my case.

        I personally believe rapture is not far away. It is closer. I know it!!!!!! I became a Christian in 1985 but I was born and raised with strong Christian family background. I have studied Bible prophecy for a long time. I’m 50 years old. I truly believe I won’t see myself 55 or 60 years old on this earth. We are out of here. Keep in mind, I know you know about United Nation Agenda 2030 and ID2020. I refused the microchip implant, but I know the rapture will happen before the chips arrive and Antichrist. Did you hear about Baseball tickets? No more buying the tickets. Facial recognition biometric ticketing are coming to ballpark.

        I believe that we have one of the best Presidents that we have ever had, I put him along side George Washington and Abraham Lincoln! Like you said he is strong, he is not afraid to do what it takes to get the job done, he is not afraid to face adversity, nor is he afraid to challenge those with opposing views. I believe that he is honest, hard working, and trustworthy, that he stands behind the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of America, that his heart is with God, and that he supports one nation under God. I also agree with you that President Obama was absolutely the worst president that we have ever had in our history, much worse than even Jimmy Carter!

        I’ve got you by 10 years my friend, I will turn 60 this year! I can hardly believe it. Unfortunately I was not raised in a strong Christian family, I wish that I was, I didn’t hear anything (very little at most) about Jesus Christ from my family. I haven’t heard about baseball tickets, that is insane! One step closer my friend, one step closer in technological advances towards the Mark of the Beast, to the beginning of the Tribulation Period!

        God bless! Maranatha!
