Basij Commander: Syrian Crisis to End with Israel’s Collapse
The Fars News Agency reports: “Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi underlined that the current crisis in Syria will terminate with the collapse of the Zionist regime.
‘The end of (crisis in) Syria will lead to the collapse of the Zionist regime,’ Naqdi said in the Northern province of Golestan.
Elsewhere, he referred to the recent unrests in Turkey, and stressed, ‘What is happening in Turkey is a lesson for those who say that we should turn to the West.’
In relevant remarks, Naqdi underlined that the recent unrest in Turkey is the result of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s policy of concession to the demands of Washington and other western countries.
‘Today, the Turkish government has reached a point that the streets in Turkey are the scene of conflicts every day due to the propaganda of the western media, and Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is complaining about BBC and CNN (‘s biased reports),’ Naqdi said in Tehran.
‘This is the result of interaction with the US,’ he added…” (Israel’s collapse? Never! Daniel 12:1; Matthew 24:21, 22 – the elect who are spared are Jews – Isaiah 42:1; 45:4; 65:9, 22; Romans 8:32; and Isaiah 56:5 where God promises His Chosen People; “I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name…” See the next report.)
Poll: Most Israeli Arabs Support Violent Uprising
Israel National News reports: “About 58% of the Arab citizens of Israel say that the Palestinian Authority Arabs would be justified in starting a violent rebellion (‘intifada’) if the diplomatic process does not advance. A similar percentage advocate an ‘intifada’ by Israeli Arab citizens if their situation does not improve considerably, according to a poll, which was carried out by Prof. Sami Samoha of Haifa University, with the Israeli Democracy Institute.
The views are in line with the call by an Arab Knesset Member, for an Arab intifada inside Israel.
The poll shows that 63% of Israel’s Arab citizens think Iran should continue its nuclear development, despite the evidence that Iran seeks Israel’s destruction through nuclear weapons.
About 54 percent of the Arabs prefer Israel over any other country as a place to love. And yet, 70% do not accept Israel’s right to maintain a Jewish majority.
While 70% of the Arabs say that the government is treating them like second-class citizens, a full 72% would like the Arab parties in the Knesset to join the coalition – although the Arab MKs themselves oppose this move…”
