Iran's Ayatollah Ali Khamenei calls for destruction of Israel, Jews Comments

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is calling for the death of all Jews and the destruction of Israel.  On the Web site, called Alef, Khamenei says the opportunity must not be lost to remove "this corrupting material. It is a "'jurisprudential justification' to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel, and in that, the Islamic government of Iran must take the helm." Continue Reading

    The regimen of Iran is a satanic following that calls for the destruction of God's people. The Bible clearly states Iran, China & Islamic states will come against Israel in the last days in the battle of Armagedon. God will destroy ALL who come against God's people Israel. Be sure God is NOT mocked you will be destroyed. Christ is the messiah, the son of God, he is Jewish & he will come to claim his people & rule the world. Islam will be destroyed

    Dear Sirs,

    Where is the documentation? What is the website so that I may read it for myself? Who translated this, the same people who mis-translated Ahmadinejad's speech to put the famous "wipe Israel off the face of the map" words into his mouth.

    One thing I always admired about the Catholic Church was the solid moral background that it gave me. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor! If you are going to accuse Iran of such ill-advised and inflammatory speech, let's see the whole thing!

    If you want more information on the previous round of Iran smearing I wrote it up at my blog.

    If I remember correctly, Iran threatened Israel's demise first, through their president Ahmedinajad, when he stated that Israel needs to be wiped off the map. And as usual, this religious leader is trying to reverse the tables and claim that this pre-emptive stike is because of Israel's threat of removing their nuclear capabilities. The pre-emptive strike is necessary because of their presidents statements.

    These leaders lie and distribute false information continually and they think that the rest of the world doesn't see it. Khamenei might want to read the old testament (part of their past) regarding God's chosen people and anyone who tries to hurt them. Genesis 12:2-3 - "I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."

    Not surprising. More hateful rhetoric from a hateful man. Mohammad Ali Shariati: Iran may not be as bad as Saudi Arabia when it comes to rligious freedom, but as we can see from the Ayatollah's remarks, Jews are clearly discriminated against, if not actively persecuted. The Ayatollah is one of the figureheads in the hard right-wing of the Islamic fundamentalist movement - they're opponents of religious freedom.

    Does the line get crossed over with such comments as this leader pledges? Support for Israel comes with limits. Those limits continue to be aggressively brought to the worlds attention, no matter how unjust or how much hatred they display. The evils of war make for cautious command and control of our military powers as well as Israels. Crossing the lines on the nuclear guidelines along with a doctrine straight out of hell are more than a cause for concern. The Israeli choice now is to defend themselves before they are blown off the map or get blown off the map. It's a terrible thing, but war is just under terms to save an entire country. The limits have been repeatedly crossed. There is no turning back now to begin military action in upcoming months, weeks or even days.

    A political statement to the Panetta rumors.

    There are around 25000 Jews currently living in Iran and they have a member of
    Parliament representing them. The biggest population of Jews in Middle East after
    Israel. There are also couple of hundred thousand Christian of mainly Armenian Origin
    currently live in Iran and also have their representatives in Parliament. Unlike any other
    Muslim States in Middle East -- the Iranian Jews and Christians are freely practicing
    their religions in Synagogues and Churches all over Iran. Today, there are at least 600 churches in Iran.

    This article misinforms the World on nature of current Iranian regime. If it hates Jews -- it could have started exterminating its own Jewish Population. This type of Misinformation is like a lie and it is a Sin and Produces hate and is dangerous for the world community.

    You can also check the following websites on Iranian/Persian Jews and Christians living
    peacefully in Iran and practicing their religion (something you don't see say in Saudi Arabia):
