Now that President Trump has nixed the Iran nuclear deal, the Iranian mullahs who run the country are feeling freer to express themselves more clearly and reveal their murderous ambitions regarding the U.S., Israel, and the Gulf States, while acknowledging their nuclear goals aren’t peaceful at all.
As The Washington Free Beacon reports, Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, a member of the Iranian Assembly of Experts which answers to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, told his audience at a weekly prayer service in Tehran that Iran is "strengthening its missile power on a daily basis" and is just about to turn "Tel Aviv and Haifa to rubble," as translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
Khatami added that Iranians are "more unified and stronger than ever" in their commitment to "Death to America." He targeted Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia, saying they will be "America's cannon fodder.” He ranted, "The Islamic Republic is strengthening its missile power on a daily basis, so that Israel, that plundering regime, will not be able to sleep, and nightmares will constantly be present before its eyes. If Israel makes a mistake, we will turn Tel Aviv and Haifa to rubble … Mr. Trump! A few days ago, you said that the ‘Death to America' [slogan] was fading in Iran. This is Tehran, the heart of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and the people here, more unified and stronger than ever, say: ‘Death to America!'"
The crowd responded in unison, "Death to America!"
