Tehran, Iran, Oct. 28 Irans 1979 Islamic revolution sealed the inevitable fate of destruction for the state of Israel, a senior Iranian cleric told Friday prayers worshippers.
Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani told worshippers that further defeats and withdrawals by Israel came about after further gains by the Islamic revolution.
The first sign of the Israeli downfall was the victory of the Islamic revolution in the lands of the secure and stable island of America and Israel (A reference to Iran in the days of the Shah) in the turbulent oceans of the Middle East; when the strategic partner of America and Israel turned into their arch-nemesis, Rafsanjani, who currently heads the State Expediency Council, said.
The slogan of the Great Israel, a vast Jewish country stretching from the Nile to the Euphrates, has today become very opaque. Even if the Americans came to Iraq for this reason, I tell them that they have been defeated, the former Iranian President said, adding that the Islamic republic had made further gains against its enemies.
Turning to Western pressures on Tehran vis-à-vis its sensitive nuclear activities, Rafsanjani told Western nations, Do not think that in Iran you are up against a faction or a particular party; you are facing a nation.
He said that Iran was completely serious of reaching its nuclear ambitions adding that the United States and Europe had not yet come to their senses.
Irans nuclear science is indigenous. With every branch they try to cut from this tree another branch will grow.
