Khamenei: Israel Will Be Gone in 25 Years
"The spirit of fighting, heroism and jihad will keep you worried every moment."
Now that Barack Obama has the necessary congressional minorities to block opposition to his Iran deal, Iran’s supreme leader decided to rub some salt in the wound. This time, he’s back to threatening Israel. “After nuclear negotiations, the Zionist regime said that they will not be worried about Iran in the next 25 years,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei wrote. “I am telling you, first, you will not be around in 25 years’ time, and God willing, there will be no Zionist regime in 25 years. Second, during this period, the spirit of fighting, heroism and jihad will keep you worried every moment.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned in a congressional speech in March that negotiating with the Iranian regime was a fool’s errand, and that Obama’s “deal will not prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons; it would all but guarantee that Iran gets those weapons — lots of them.” Best case scenario, let’s say Obama’s right and Iran is prevented from obtaining nuclear weapons for 15 years. That leaves 10 years in Khamenei’s 25-year window to annihilate Israel. And in the meantime, Obama will give Iran $100 billion in sanctions relief with which to keep the jihad going, just as Khamenei promised.
