Proof's in the pudding: 'If you treat them with respect, they will moderate'
For seven years, Barack Hussein Obama has been telling us that if we treat Iran with respect
, they will moderate. Has it worked? You be the judge
Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, a former president of Iran and an ally
of current President Hassan Rouhani, called for the destruction of
Israel and described the country as “alien” and “temporary,” according
to a report
Monday in Iran’s official IRNA news agency. Rafsanjani, who heads the
powerful Expediency Council, which advises Iran’s Supreme Leader
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, made the comments in an interview with a
Hezbollah-affiliated news outlet.
In response to a question why the Zionist regime 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.
Rafsanjani, who along with Rouhani is often characterized as a
moderate, appears to associate Israel’s destruction with the completion
of the nuclear deal.
What could go wrong?
