Rafsanjani: Forged Israeli Regime To Be Wiped-Off Map


Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi-RafsanjaniPresence of “the forged Israeli regime” is temporary, as eventually, one day, “this alien existence that has been urged into the body of an ancient nation and a historical region will be wiped off the map,” said Iran’s Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani this week.

The chairman of the Expediency Council made the comment in an interview with Al Ahd news website affiliated to the Lebanese Hezbollah Movement.

In response to a question about why Israel has done its best to prevent the path for reaching a nuclear agreement between Iran and the West, Ayatollah Rafsanjani said that even Tel Aviv knows well that Iran is not after acquiring nuclear weapons.

‘By doing so the Zionist wish to keep Iran engaged in problems permanently, knowing that the Islamic Republic’s political, economic, cultural and propagation status will all improve after such an agreement,’ he said.

Asked about the future of the Palestinian nation, Rafsanjani said that he still believes that eventually “one day the forged and temporary Israeli entity, which is an alien existence forged into the body of a nation and a region be wiped off the map.

“Now when, and how that will happen, depends on the conditions which are rapidly changing. Those conditions can be provided very soon if the usefulness period of Israel will expire,” he said.

“It might as well take very long, as both Israel and its supporters are trying their best to extend its existence period till a very remote future,” he added.
