Iranian outlets have been claiming recently the United States has
been forced to bow before Iran on its nuclear program, demonstrating
the West’s abandonment of Israel and paving the way for the Islamic
regime to annihilate the Jewish state.
While restating that Iran will demand ever more in the upcoming
second round of talks with the 5+1 nations to be held this month in
Baghdad, the Iranian media are now boasting that Israel has been
abandoned by its allies and is in a dire bind.
One such editorial, published last week by Iran’s Keyhan newspaper,
which is directly under the supervision of Iran’s supreme leader,
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, stated, “It can be said that within the last
60 years, this is the first time that the Zionist regime, since its
illegal inception, has had to endure rejection by the West over its
vision and interest in the region.”
The editorial, written by Sadollah Zarei, a columnist for the hard-
line paper, said that within the last three months, Israeli
officials, after reports that America is on the verge of accepting
the Iranian nuclear program, have made several trips to Washington,
where on one trip they met for 10 days with U.S. officials to try to
change President Obama’s decision to accept Iran’s nuclear program.
They were unsuccessful.
“The ramifications of [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s
defeat in the face of Obama’s policies have been a breakdown in
Israel’s usurper regime, where now many within its own government
have spoken against its own prime minister, claiming Iran is a
rational regime and not after the bomb,” Zarei wrote.
While Israel’s government is in disarray internally, the editorial
said, the West is forced to watch Iran’s victory in nuclear
“The West, which in the first (5+1) Istanbul talks would not
recognize Iran’s nuclear program even if the 20 percent enriched
material was sent out of the country, now before stepping into the
Baghdad meeting has accepted Iran’s nuclear program without even
getting an assurance on the 20 percent enrichment process,” Zarei
said. “All of this is taking place in front of the horrified eyes of
the Zionist regime.”
The 5+1 nations, which are the five permanent Security Council
nations plus Germany, have broached the subject of allowing Iran to
enrich uranium to the 5 percent level for peaceful purposes.
Enriching to the 20 percent level is an important step to nuclear
weaponization, which Iran is pushing for as part of its stated goal
of obliterating Israel.
The question now is why the West has changed its policies toward
Iran, the editorial said. It could have continued with the same old
policies of confrontation.
The answer, the editorial said, is that “in the last year, two
important events have taken place. One has been the Islamic Awakening
(the Arab Spring) in the region, which is based on the ideology of
the Islamic Republic of Iran and has the West quite worried and
concerned; the other is the events in Egypt, which, despite all the
analysis by the West, have turned into an Islamic movement with
Sharia laws. These two events have forced the West to rethink its
approach toward Iran.”
As a result, Israel is backed into a corner, alone without its
allies, the editorial said.
Zarei concluded that Israel has been weakened drastically with what
is happening in Egypt, which has collapsed part of Israel’s regional
“With diminishing support for Israel and with the (upcoming) collapse
of the monarchy in Saudi Arabia,” Zarei claims, “there won’t be any
obstacles left facing Iran with its policy of annihilation of Israel.”
Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi, one of the most influential clerics in the
Islamic regime and possibly the next supreme leader, has stated that
it is the duty of Muslims to destroy the “Zionist regime and its
Yazdi had decreed in 2006 that in case of war between Muslims
and “infidels,” Muslims can take the “infidels” as slaves until they
become Muslims and then send them back to their countries.
In a new decree, Yazdi said, “When protecting Islam and the Muslim
(community), martyrdom operation not only is allowed, but it even is
In any attack on Israel, only Israeli civilians who have opposed
Israel’s “vicious crimes” should be spared, but the rest can be
slaughtered, he said.
As WND has reported, the Iranian government, through a website proxy,
has laid out the legal and religious justification for the
destruction of Israel and the slaughter of its people.
The doctrine includes wiping out Israeli assets and Jewish people
