Iran: We Can Destroy Israel in a Week


ahmadinejadIranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s chief of staff, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei, said Wednesday that if Israel attacked Iran it would be destroyed within a week.┬áSpeaking at a political conference of ultra-conservatives in Iran’s north, Mashaei said, “If the Zionist regime attacks Iran, the Zionists will have no longer than a week to live.”

The semi-official Fars news agency quoted him as saying that the Islamic Republic would destroy Israel “in less than 10 days.”

Mashaei, who was also formerly a vice president, added that new sanctions to be imposed on Iran for its nuclear program would only harm Western countries.

The statesman is considered a close affiliate of the Iranian president and has previously caused a stir by
saying that Iran was “a friend of the Israeli people”. He later retracted this statement and issued a contrary one saying Israel should be destroyed.

On a visit to Saudi Arabia, Mashaei claimed that the annihilation of Israel should be a global goal. He told Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir that “the corrupt and criminal Zionist regime is harming not only the Arab and Islamic world, but all of humanity.”

  1. Why must we wait for them to actually try !! I say we take them out with a pre-emtive strike just for threatening to destoy us !!

  2. You incompetent boob. Why would it take you so long if you had all the weapons you say you have. Ymach Shmoi. Haman said the exact same words and we know what happened to him.

  3. The way I see it, Iran’s regime looks to be a lot more unstable and likely to die than Israel. Israel can defend itself from Iran just fine whereas Iran has outdated weapons, inferior military technology, and a populace that is increasingly dissatisfied with their regime which is the real threat to humanity. Either the Iranians are bluffing (most likely) or their intelligence services are sorely lacking info and understanding of Israel’s capabilities. My point is that Iran is just dishing out hyped up rhetoric for the umpteenth time yet this time, they can’t even keep it consistent! First he says “no longer than a week’ and then he says “less than 10 days”! Perhaps he realized it might take 8 or 9 days lol. As far as “criminality” goes, we could go on for ages talking about Iran’s criminal behavior towards its own people and in terms of its nuclear program but the UN has not and probably will not do anything about that. It would rather focus its microscope on Israel much to the enjoyment of dictatorships worldwide.

  4. If all it does is harm the Arab and Islamic world, dayenu! That would be more than enough.
    Seriously, folks, everyone knows the days of Iran are numbered. Their fall will be so hard, so fast, it will make the head of that vulgar midget, known as I’madinnerjacket, to spin. I can’t wait to see the downfall of such a sonei Yisroel. I want to see it and rejoice at it!

  5. Excellent thoughts Shmuel! G-d willing, Iran will have a democratic government who is willing to be a friend of Israel one day. My best friend’s family was born in Iran and had to flee to the US. I am hoping that he and his family can go back soon and see the beauty of that place. I sure would like to go visit Esther and Mordechai’s tombs but as long as that double-talking madman holds the reins, all we can do is hope and pray. Gut shabbas everyone!

  6. Just imagine what the UN (Ummm Nothing) would suddenly do if Israel said half of this pure garbage spewed by this attention seeking wannabe unstable madman.
    then again what else is new?

  7. Little does our iranian friend know that Israel can destroy Iran in day. The Israeli intelligence it well aware of every move the Iranians make.

  8. Why does Israel let these hate mongers spout trash. They don’t believe in dialouge, they will continue to fund terrorist, and once they have nukes all will break lose. I’m not Jewish and I do see the difficulty within Israel for peaceful coexsistence with Paletinians- but these radicals have no love for Jews at all. When you see someone without a home you pick that person up and share your bread with him~no matter what realigion he or she is. If there has to be war then let it come quickly. Never back down from a vicious dog- Shove your fist down it’s throat-That is the only way to stop a mad animal from harming you.
