Iran’s newly-appointed army chief, General Abdolrahim Mousavi, said on Monday there is no guarantee Israel will exist in the next 25 years, adding that its slightest wrong move may result in the Israeli cities of Haifa and Tel Aviv being “razed down to the ground”.

Mousavi was appointed in August as the commander of the Iranian army, an entity separate from the country’s Revolutionary Guard corps.

Speaking at an event in the holy city of Qom, he elaborated on the remarks he made last month about Israel not surviving 25 years, explaining that he never meant to say the regime would necessarily last that long.

“That we say that the Zionist regime will not see 25 years later doesn’t mean that it will certainly survive for 25 years,” he said according to the semi-official Fars News Agency.

“There is a prerequisite for this famous sentence, that is if the Zionist regime makes any wrong move, Haifa and Tel Aviv will be razed down to the ground.”

Mousavi’s comments alluded to the September 2015 warning by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in which he said “the Zionists” who often raised concerns over Iran’s nuclear program shouldn’t naively feel relieved for 25 years just because the comprehensive nuclear deal was agreed between Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers.

Key points of the historic nuclear deal include a “long-term” International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) presence in Iran that includes the monitoring of uranium ore concentrate produced by Iran for 25 years.

“You will not see next 25 years (…) With God’s grace, nothing under the name of the Zionist regime will exist in the region by then,” Khamenei said on Twitter.

Khamenei also previously warned of the United States’ unswerving hostility towards the Iranian nation, saying that even after the nuclear deal was inked the Americans have been hatching plots and approved a bill in the Congress against Iran.

On Monday, US President Donald Trump warned that Washington will walk away from the deal if it concludes that IAEA is not tough enough in monitoring it. Iranian nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi responded that the greatest threat to its survival was “the American administration’s hostile attitude.”

The headline is incorrect.
“That we say that the Zionist regime will not see 25 years later doesn’t mean that it will certainly survive for 25 years,”. The Zionist regime is NOT Israel.
There is nothing wrong about to erase the Khazarian mobsters “Zionist regime” all upfront this creature Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu.

Yes. According to the Bible, the ‘promised land’ for the Jews is between the Nile and the Euphrates. Thanks to Khamenei, it will become reality : It’s already mostly populated by Jews which just don’t know they are so, as their ancestors were forced into Arabisation and Islam… Israeli did DNA tests. It’s well known in scientific circles that what is the nightmare of all Salafists and Wahhabists, the concept of “greater Israel”, is already here. People just don’t know it… DNA tests also proved the Khazar bias to be total bullshit. In fact, we may have interesting surprises in… Read more »

Why should any Jew give a rats_a to the bible? Yes, it is written by a Jew (long story), I mean the bible, but no Jew gives a damn to it.
Salafists and Wahhabists in one sentence? Do you actually know the difference between Salafism and Wahhabism? Looks not otherwise you would never put those two together, because those have nothing to do with each other.
Anyhow, I don’t understand anyway what you want to tell me with your story?

When that happens, Iran will also cease to exist.
