Iran: If war breaks out, we'll annihilate IDF

Tehran's defense minister dismisses possibility of Israeli strike on nuclear facilities; says 'Israel's warlike talk will only see regime's war machine destroyed'

Iran is taking another stab at psychological warfare against Israel: Iranian Defense Minister General Ahmad Vahidi vowed Tuesday that should Israel strike its nuclear facilities, the Islamic Republic will annihilate the IDF.

 

The Israeli leaders, Vahidi said "Are not very smart. They are warmongers… all this warlike talk will only see that regime's war machine destroyed."

Speaking at a conference on defensive diplomacy in the Iranian Defense Ministry, Vahidi said that the Israeli debate on whether to strike Iran is a government ploy meant to distract the public's opinion from the Palestinian issue.

 

"The weak, crumbling Zionist regime, which has suffered humiliations in the (recent) wars cannot deal with Iran's might," he said. "The threats are a sign of weakness by brainless leaders."

 

Israel, he added, is so wary of the "Islamic awakening" of the Arab Spring, "That it's scared of its own shadow. This is why they are trying to use psychological warfare."

 

The timing of the Iranian defense minister's statements is not coincidental as they were made a few days before "international Jerusalem day" – a blatant anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic show of hatred scheduled for Friday.

 

As part of "international Jerusalem day" millions of Muslims use the last Friday of Ramadan to lament the fate of "occupied Jerusalem."

 

Earlier Tuesday, Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said that Tehran was "not taking the Israeli threats seriously. They are baseless and therefore worthless," he said.
