Iran Inches Closer Toward its Goal of ‘Wiping Israel Off the Map’

UNITED WITH ISRAEL

With such dire promises of conflict, it would be expected that the international news media and politicians around the world would have something to say about the situation.

By Majid Rafizadeh, The Gatestone Institute

Iran’s military activities and clear public threats to annihilate Israel continue to grow in frequency and intensity. These moves not only instill fear, as they are doubtless meant to do; they also threaten to disrupt the international community.

With such dire promises of conflict, it would be expected that the international news media and politicians throughout the world would have something to say about this situation.

Instead, Iran’s continued abusive behavior continues to be cozied up to at worst, or at best, ignored.
One of the core pillars and revolutionary ideals of the Islamic Republic is destroying the Jewish state. It is also one of the religious prophecies of the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, and his successor, the current Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, that Israel will be eventually erased from the face of the earth.

As Iran’s theocratic establishment believes that the Supreme Leader is Allah’s representative on earth, whatever words or desires the Supreme Leader utters are considered wishes, which must be brought to life by Allah’s true believers.

While they progress toward destroying Israel, not only do Iranian leaders believe that they are inching closer to fulfilling a religious prophecy, but they also see that they are gaining strategic and geopolitical victories — in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and in the Gaza Strip.

The Deputy Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Hossein Salami, recently threatened on Iran’s Channel 2 TV that Israel is “vulnerable and bringing itself closer to death”.

Salami recently made it vehemently clear the strategy of the Iranian government, stating:“Our strategy is to erase Israel from the global political map. And, it seems that, considering the evil that Israel is doing, it is bringing itself closer to that.”

In addition, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei recently posted a Twitter tirade against Israel. It stated that the, “the Zionist regime will perish in the not-so-far future.”

This burst of confidence is bolstered by Iran’s military buildup in Syria, among other places. The Syrian civil war has been viewed as a perfect environment for the Iranian leaders to advance and ultimately achieve their objective of destroying Israel.

Iran has built, or is in the process of building, more than 10 military bases in Syria, some of which are near the Israeli border. Tehran has used this strategic position in Syria to fire rockets into Israel.

While many of the world leaders disregard Iran’s evident intentions to destroy Israel, they always seems extremely quick to criticize Israel for actually defending the safety of its citizens.After Iran’s unprovoked attacks on Israel and its military build-up in Syria were dismissed by the international community, Israel had no choice but to carry out its own strikes against the Iranian military bases and infrastructure that were threatening their country.

Creating a Narrative
Unfortunately, some news outlets and politicians have been attempting to create a narrative to lead people to believe that the Iranian leaders’ threats are just talk. Iran’s leaders, however, continue to demonstrate their intentions not only with verbal threats, but with military actions as well.

Since 1979, Iran has authorized firing rockets and missiles into Israel, and have also used proxies, such as Hamas and Hezbollah, to attack Israel viciously. Iran appears to have Israel solidly in its cross-hairs.

Apparently in a rush to provide cover for Iran, some world leaders have also, for years, been attempting to tell the public that there is a difference between “moderate” Iranian politicians and the hardliners.

Unfortunately, that distinction is make-believe. Iran’s current president, Hassan Rouhani, like the previous president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has called Israel a “cancerous tumor.” Iranian politicians across the political spectrum (hardliners or “moderates”) all agree on one thing: destroy Israel.

有了如此可怕的冲突承诺,预计国际新闻媒体和世界各地的政治家们将对形势发表一些看法。

作者:盖茨通研究所的Majid Rafizadeh

伊朗的军事活动和明显的歼灭以色列的公共威胁在频率和强度上继续增长。这些举措不仅会像毫无疑问的本意那样灌输恐惧,而且还可能扰乱国际社会。

有了如此可怕的冲突承诺,国际新闻媒体和全世界的政治家们都将对这种情况有发言权。

相反,伊朗持续的虐待行为,在最坏的情况下,或者在最好的情况下,仍然被容忍,被忽视。

伊斯兰共和国的核心支柱和革命理想之一是摧毁犹太国家。伊朗伊斯兰共和国创始人阿亚图拉·鲁霍拉·霍梅尼及其继任者、现任最高领袖阿亚图拉·阿里·哈梅内伊的宗教预言之一是,以色列最终将从地球表面消失。

伊朗的神权机构认为,最高领袖是真主阿拉在地球上的代表,因此,无论最高领袖说什么话或说什么愿望,都被认为是真主阿拉真正的信徒必须实现的愿望。

尽管伊朗领导人在摧毁以色列方面取得了进展,但他们不仅认为伊朗领导人正逐渐接近实现宗教预言,而且还看到他们在伊拉克、叙利亚、也门、黎巴嫩和加沙地带取得了战略和地缘政治胜利。

伊朗伊斯兰革命卫队(IRGC)副司令官侯赛因·萨拉米(Hossein Salami)最近在伊朗第二频道的电视上威胁说,以色列“脆弱,并使自己濒临死亡”。

萨拉米最近明确了伊朗政府的战略,并表示:

“我们的战略是把以色列从全球政治地图上抹去。而且,考虑到以色列所做的坏事,它似乎正在使自己更接近这一点。”

此外,最高领导人哈梅内伊(Ayatollah Ali Khamenei)最近在推特上发表了一篇针对以色列的长篇演说。它说,“犹太复国主义政权将在不久的将来灭亡。”

伊朗在叙利亚和其他地方的军事集结支持了这种信心的爆发。叙利亚内战被视为伊朗领导人推进并最终实现其摧毁以色列目标的完美环境。

伊朗已在叙利亚建立或正在建设10多个军事基地,其中一些位于以色列边境附近。德黑兰利用在叙利亚的这一战略地位向以色列发射火箭。

尽管许多世界领导人无视伊朗明显意图摧毁以色列,但他们似乎总是非常迅速地批评以色列实际上捍卫了其公民的安全。

伊朗对以色列的无端攻击及其在叙利亚的军事集结被国际社会驳回后,以色列别无选择,只能对威胁其国家的伊朗军事基地和基础设施进行自己的打击。

创造叙事

不幸的是,一些新闻机构和政治家一直试图创造一个故事,引导人们相信伊朗领导人的威胁只是空谈。然而,伊朗领导人不仅通过口头威胁,而且通过军事行动继续表明他们的意图。

自1979年以来,伊朗已授权向以色列发射火箭和导弹,并利用哈马斯和真主党等代表对以色列进行恶意攻击。伊朗似乎把以色列牢牢地钉在十字线上。

显然,为了给伊朗提供掩护,一些世界领导人多年来也一直试图告诉公众,“温和”的伊朗政治家和强硬派之间存在着差异。

不幸的是,这种区别是虚伪的。伊朗现任总统哈桑·鲁哈尼(Hassan Rouhani)和前总统马哈茂德·艾哈迈迪内贾德(Mahmoud Ahmadine-jad)一样,将以色列称为“恶性肿瘤”。各政治派别的伊朗政治家(强硬派或“温和派”)都同意一件事:摧毁以色列。
