Supreme Leader: If Jesus Were Here He Would Fight America
December 27, 2013 — CSNNews.com reports: “Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei marked Christmas Day with social media messages tying Jesus into political rhetoric directed at the United States.
‘If Christ were among us today, he would not spare even a single moment to fight the leaders of despotism and global arrogance,’ he said on Facebook, using the Islamic Republic’s favored term for America.
‘Nor would he tolerate hunger and wandering of millions of people, degenerated by the hegemonic and colonialist powers into war, corruption, and violence,’ he added…” (The prophet Jesus of Islam who, according to Imam Kabbani, who heads up America’s Muslims and for whom Rick Warren spoke at two Muslim conventions undoubtedly agrees because their prophet Jesus called Isa is an imposter and not the Jesus of the Holy Bible. Christ states in John 5:43: “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive”.)
Khamenei Says U.S. is Greatest Violator of Human Rights
January 13, 2014 — Israel National News reports: “The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has translated and posted to the internet a video of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s speech from last week, during which he referred to the United States as ‘Satan.’
During the speech, Khamenei claims that the United States is ‘the greatest violator of human rights in the world’ and the crowd responds by chanting, ‘Death to America!’
‘Nobody should be under the illusion that those who stood up with all their might against the Islamic Revolution have given up [their enmity] today. No, they are still standing up against it. Any enemy backs down when forced to. If you force them to back down – they will. Nevertheless, they will not back down from their enmity towards us,’ he said.
‘This is the case in the world today. We should identify the enemy. The smiles of the enemy must not be taken seriously. We must not get too excited by these smiles. We must not forget the goal,’ declared Khamenei.
‘Today, they think that due to the pressure from the sanctions and economic siege, our nation has raised its hands in surrender. This is a mistake. Indeed, it is. This is a nation that never raises its hands in surrender,’ he added…” (More disproved nonsense.)
Rouhani boasts of West’s ‘surrender’ to Iran in nuclear talks
January 14, 2014 — The Jerusalem Post reports: “Iranian President Hassan Rouhani took to social media on Tuesday to boast that the interim nuclear agreement reached between Tehran and the P5+1 nations was the result of the ‘world powers surrender[ing] to the Iranian nation’s will.’
The UN nuclear watchdog said on Tuesday a planned meeting with Iran next week to discuss steps meant to ease concerns over its nuclear program has been pushed back to Feb. 8 at Tehran’s request…
The International Atomic Energy Agency did not say why Tehran asked for a delay. But the original date, Jan. 21, is just a day after Iran and big powers are to start implementing an interim deal on curbing Iranian nuclear activity, suggesting a busy agenda in coming days may have led to the postponement.
The IAEA has been tasked with checking that Iran carries out its end of the six-month preliminary accord, so the UN agency is also facing an extra workload…” (President Rouhani served under two Islamic terrorists. First and foremost, Imam Khomeini who returned from exile in France to Iran and promoted the idea of overtaking the world. Presently Rouhani serves under Imam Khamenei who stated: ‘It matters not how many Iranians die by nuclear warfare as long as Islam rules the entire world.’ See the next report.)
Army Commander: Enemy Unable to Confront Iran Militarily
January 14, 2014 — The Fars News Agency reports: “Iranian Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi downplayed the US officials’ war rhetoric against Tehran, and said the enemies are not able to confront Iran militarily.
‘Had the enemy been able to confront us militarily, it would have already taken action,’ Salehi said in Tehran on Tuesday.
He referred to the current political and nuclear talks between Iran and the world powers, including the US, and said, ‘Given their weakness in the military dimension, they have opted for the political arena and we will certainly succeed in this area too.’
Salehi voiced confidence that the power and might of the Iranian Armed Forces will influence the talks between Tehran and the world powers.
In relevant remarks in December, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani downplayed Washington’s war rhetoric against Tehran, and underlined that the US has collapsed in all the three arenas of economy, politics and military…”
