Ayatollah warns Obama on Israel

November 29, 2013

An influential Iranian cleric has warned President Obama not to include  Israel in any nuclear negotiations because that country must be destroyed.

“What is visible is that Obama has agreed to include the fake Zionist regime  (Israel) in future negotiations,’ said Ayatollah Mohammad Khatami, a member of  the Iran’s Assembly of Experts.

“However, we firmly believe (Israel) must be wiped off the face of the earth  and we don’t recognize (its existence).” Khatami said, according  to IRNA, the official news agency of the Islamic Republic. The Assembly of Experts is responsible for appointing the regime’s supreme leader.

After the six-month interim deal was reached last weekend, Obama asked in  a telephone call to Benjamin Netanyahu that the Israeli prime minister  “take a breather” in his vocal denunciation of the agreement. In return, the two  agreed that Israel would send a delegation, headed by Israeli National Security  Adviser Yossi Cohen, to Washington to discuss strategy for a permanent  agreement.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said  Friday that all further discussions will have to leave out Israel, IRNA  reported, because Iran would not attend a meeting with a state that is  headquartered in Jerusalem.

“We consider the Zionist regime as the biggest danger to the region and the  world,” Zarif said.

Khatami said America cannot be trusted and that it’s obvious it wants to  break its promises made at the Geneva meeting.

“Already, when the ink of the Geneva agreement is not yet dry, the lie is  reflected on websites that Iran does not have (uranium) enrichment rights,” he  said.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry strongly objected to a White House press release on  the terms of last weekend’s Geneva agreement.

“What has been released by the website of the White House as a fact sheet is  a one-sided interpretation of the agreed text in Geneva, and some of the  explanations and words in the sheet contradict the text of the Joint Plan of  Action (the title of the Iran-5+1 world powers deal), and this fact sheet has  unfortunately been translated and released in the name of the Geneva agreement  by certain media, which is not true,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said  Tuesday.

Shortly after the Geneva agreement was reached last Sunday, the Islamic  Republic’s supreme leader claimed  victory.

“I thank God … the new government … was able to legitimize the Iranian  nation’s nuclear program on the international stage,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei  said, “and take the initial step in a way that the nuclear rights and the  enrichment rights of the Iranian nation are acknowledged by world powers where  before they had tried to deny them. (The agreement will) open the way for future  big strides in technical and economic progress.”

Early Sunday, Iran and the 5+1 world powers – the five permanent U.N.  Security Council members plus Germany – reached agreement in Geneva over its  illicit nuclear program. Under the agreement, Iran, in return for billions of  dollars in sanctions relief, will keep much of its nuclear infrastructure, is  limited to enriching uranium at the 5 percent level for six months, will convert  its highly enriched uranium of 20 percent to harmless oxide and will allow more  intrusive inspections of its nuclear plants by the International Atomic Energy  Agency, which will be limited to only agreed-on facilities.

On  Tuesday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced that the Islamic  Republic’s uranium enrichment process “will never witness the stop of enrichment  in Iran and that enrichment is our red line. The most important fact is that  there will be no new sanctions. This means that the sanctions regime has been  broken.”

Khamenei, as negotiations resumed last week, told thousands of Basij militia forces that the Iranian strategy was an  “artistic maneuver and the use of different tactics (would be used) to reach  different goals and ideals” of the Islamic regime. Stalling tactics for more  than a decade have allowed Iran to greatly enhance its nuclear capability to the  point it could become nuclear-armed within weeks.

Khamenei called Israel a “rabid dog,” “unclean,” “illegitimate” and “a  bastard.”

“The Zionist regime is destined to destruction because this miserable regime  was imposed (on the Middle East) based upon force, and no imposed phenomenon can  last,” he told the Basij forces.

Basij commanders in return issued a statement  Wednesday: “The everlasting covenant with the supreme leader will continue  for the full elimination of arrogant powers (America) and the destruction of the  Zionist regime. We ask God the same way that had Muslims through the renewed  alliance with the Prophet (Mohammad) enter Masjid al-Haram (the grand mosque in  Mecca upon the conquest of Mecca by Mohammad), this renewed alliance (with the  supreme leader) also prepares the dignified and victorious believers into  Al-Aqsa Mosque (the third holiest site in Islam in Jerusalem).”
