Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami, the commander-in-chief of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), predicted that Israel would soon fall and Iran will use the impending “world war” as a “graveyard” for the policies of the United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia and their allies.
According to a report by MEMRI, Salami, in a speech that was broadcast on Ofogh TV (Iran) on Nov. 27, said, “Rest assured that we will witness the collapse of the Zionist regime, but we will never witness any serious damage to our revolution.”
He added, “Our enemies—America, England, Israel, and the regime of the Saud clan—have left their dens and are overtly meddling in the domestic affairs of this country. We are determined to confront them.”
The Iranian commander continued, “The Quran instructs us….Note that I am quoting the Lord: ‘Oh you who believe, do not take the Jews and the Christians as your allies.’ “
