Iran warns ‘nothing will remain’ of Israel if military action begins

Mohammad Ali Jafari

TEHRAN — The top commander in Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard warned Sunday that his country’s missiles will ensure “nothing will remain” of Israel if it takes military action against Tehran over its controversial nuclear program.

Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari also warned that Iran might close the Straits of Hormuz if it is attacked, withdraw from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and hit U.S. bases in the Middle East.

Such warnings and references to Israel’s destruction have been made before by Iranian officials. But Gen. Jafari’s comments to a Tehran news conference were an unusually detailed, strongly worded and comprehensive listing of the means that Iran says it has to retaliate against a strike on its nuclear facilities.

The U.S. and Israel have left open the possibility of such a strike if Iran does not back down from what they say are a push to develop nuclear weapons. Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.

“Our response to Israel is clear: I think nothing will remain of Israel (should it attack Iran). Given Israel’s small land area and its vulnerability to a massive volume of Iran’s missiles, I don’t think any spot in Israel will remain safe,” he said.

He said Iran’s response to any attack will begin near the Israeli border. The Islamic Republic has close ties with militants in Gaza and Lebanon, both of whom have rocket arsenals that could be used for cross-border strikes.

He said he did not believe however that Israel would attack on its own. Should the U.S. launch a strike, Jafari suggested that Iran could respond with missile salvos at U.S. bases in the Gulf.

“The US military bases sprawled around Iran are considered a big vulnerability. Even the missile shields that they have set up, based on information we have, could only work for a few missiles but when exposed to a massive volume of missiles, the shields will lose their efficiency and will not work,” he said.

He also said that Iran warned that oil shipments through the strategic Strait of Hormuz will be in jeopardy if a war breaks out between Iran and the United States. Iranian officials have previously threatened to close the waterway, the route for a fifth of the world’s oil, but less frequently in recent months.

“If a war breaks out where one side is Iran and the other side is the West and U.S., it’s natural that a problem should occur in the Strait of Hormuz. Export of energy will be harmed. It’s natural that this will happen,” he said.

Gen. Jafari said that, if attacked, Iran will no longer be committed to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, under whose terms U.N. inspectors visit Iranian nuclear sites. He said however that this does not mean that Iran would build a nuclear weapon.

“If the world and international organizations fail to prevent such an attack, it’s natural that Iran’s commitments (to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty) would naturally change and the situation would be different from the past. These are the risks and consequences that such an attack will bring about, and these matters would be a deterrent.”

Jafari’s comments come as U.S.-led naval forces from the West and Arab allies gather for naval maneuvers in the Persian Gulf that include mine-sweeping exercises.

    The long-awaited end to a terrible nightmare. Rothchild has his brutes have their boys hanging out in ships right now waiting for word to commence armageddon. Well he and the City of London can froth at the bit from now until eternity.

    They ain’t taking Iran.

    BTW Mark, I wonder if General Jafari is related to our beloved friend Ali!

    Hundreds of sophisticated and poweful missiles hitting Israel….that would be sweet.

    Gen. Jafari is being extremely reckless in his language.

    To express this level of extreme belligerence at nuclear powers shows he does not understand that were he to attempt to obliterate Israel, Israel’s nukes emerging atop cruise missiles from her Dolphin class subs alone would turn all of Iran’s major cities into green glass.

    But for Jews that won’t be enough, as Israel has air bases in Azerbaijan from which Israeli aircraft would certainly leave with nukes on board for Iran.

    While some of these aircraft will get shot down, the others will deliver their nukes, and nukes aren’t just bigger bombs, each on its own is a city killer.

    A dozen major cities gone – Iran gone, but plenty more nukes on the way from planes shooting out from undercover airfields in Israel will still be dropped, even one per town of a mere 100,000.

    Why such vast overkill ? For fun, and also that theirs is a very vengeful God.

    It would be far more conciliatory were Gen. Jafari to have said,”In the event of Iran being destroyed, only then will we destroy Israel, as by then we will have nothing left to lose”.

    The Jews would communicate their understanding by replacing Netanyahu with someone else next month.

    Above is about what Israel would do; space does not permit describing what America in turn would do. But perhaps no space is needed in either case.

    “Iran warns ‘nothing will remain’ of Israel if military action begins”

    I am ready and willing to SACRIFICE TO SATAN if this ever happens! And, I really mean it! …… But, not really!

    In an event of an Iran attack by Israhell there will be a lot of devastation in the Middle East and countries around the Persian Gulf. Iran is not like Iraq. Iran is ready for the “West”, it is a powerful nation that have been preparing for many years. They do not have to go half way around the world to punish the enemy, they can defend themselves in their own back yard. If Iran is attacked may be Russia will supply them with weapons as they have done for many years and China will not play the quiet boy any more.

    Hand salute to Gen. Jafari!
    That is preciesely the only language that Israel understand. The language of force.
    As the saying goes, “might is right”

    General Jafari’s so called reckless statements, are actually words of true courage, and honesty, regarding the defense of his country. Where as presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney, brags about bombing Iran as a campaign promise.

    @michael mazur; You are making a fundamental mistake. You say Israel will nuke this and nuke that if Iran does this and does that. No they won’t.
    First of all the jooz are cowards, unless they outnumber you 10 to 1. Second of all, the thought of MAD (mutually assured destruction) will contain them because they are materialists who want to live in a material world. If they know an enemy can essentially”wipe them out” even though they (Israelis) can inflict major damage on their enemy, they will back down. The jooz are masters at “bluffing”. Don’t get caught up in their game. They aren’t going to nuke anybody because no matter how many they have got, it won’t take out the entire world. When it was over, those of us left would have free reign to, literally, summarily execute any and all jooz we may happen upon in public because they would be known to cause the misery that everyone would be living through by their criminality. Same goes for the so-called “christian” zionists who support them. There will be no mercy, no forgiveness for these people – only eradication….

    “Gen. Jafari is being extremely reckless in his language.”

    What evidence do we have that MSNBC is faithfully reporting his words?

    Anyway, it is hard to put ourselves in the shoes of the Iranians and say what they should or should not say or do when ALMOST THE WHOLE COWARD AND HYPOCRITICAL WORLD IS BEHIND ISRAEL AND AMERICA, NOT FORGETTING SATAN HIMSELF!

    To this very day, when Jews target anybody or country, I do not remember them missing! They conquered the whole of the Western World, destroyed Christendom and Catholicism, perverted all morality, enslaved almost the entire world, fooled almost everybody, but MUSLIMS ARE THE ONLY REMAINING OBSTACLE TO JUDEO-PROTESTANT AND JUDEO-EVANGELICAL HEGEMONY!

    Jesus Christ warned against the Jews and told us Satan was ruling the world. DID HE LIE?

    When the entire West decided to destroy Iraq, the first time, it was my MILITARY GENIUS that told me that there was only one strategy left for the Iraqis because they were ALREADY DEAD with such might in front of them (the whole world against them, including Muslims, Arabs, Christians, India, China and Russia!):


    Didn’t we all see how ISRAEL and the WEST have been threatening to bomb Iran and for how long? Yet, we still haven’t understood!

    If the Iraqis had done just that, WHERE WOULD BE ISRAEL TODAY?

    Both Muammar Al Ghaddafi and Saddam Hussain could have stepped down, but the WARMONGERS would have found faults in the next leaders as well if they refused to KISS THEIR FEET AND BOW DOWN TO THEIR DICTATES!

    It is not Israel that has to be destroyed but THE ENTIRE WEST! And as this is impossible, there is only one way to keep them in their proper place: POLITICAL, CULTURAL AND ECONOMIC BOYCOTT! If we cannot even do that, then why bother. Let us all live as SLAVES AD VITAM AETERNAM and keep enjoying our GM and fast food, fluoride, aspartame, vaccines, Jewish porn and usury, mercury, Godless public school system, freedom to murder babies (abortion), to prostitute our daughters, sisters, mothers and wives, to sodomise each other and even marry Sodomites, and on and on.

    Perhaps the war criminal addicts will paint itself into a corner. Yes, Israel has the military edge, yes they have quite a few ‘first world’ countries on a leash, but we know change is inevitable.

    Because Iran has shown signs of a country with a strong moral foundation, I don’t think they will strike first, unless they have irrefutable evidence of impending attack.. Naturally Israel will continue to threaten & taunt Iran but because they (isr.) have such a nasty reputation of aggression I think they’d rather set up more false flags than a truthful declaration of war.

    Israel won’t go down as the culture that sabotaged, maimed and finally murdered the people of the world, but only because there will be no one left to write that history.

    Reply to michael mazur – Michael i think you should understand irans main aim in the ME. There’s a famous imam Khomeini saying from karbala (iraq) to al quds (jerusalem) this was during the iran/iraq war. When these general’s make these statements their impying those expect home to be fine it will be on fire and from many statements they make they always note that the regime will finish and the khazars will leave and the natives will get back their countries. Its easy to misinterpret what their saying they know full well the zionistz know their capabilities and no wonder the isareli’s are scared shitless of the repercussions of an attack on iran the general is just playing with their emotions which is basically psychological warfare.

    Thank you all for your responses. Yes, it’s possible that msnbc mistranslated – we know that Ahmadinejad was misrepresented as wanting Israel wiped off the map.

    Yes, had Saddam launched an attack on Israel he might have done some damage, since they were the instigators of both wars against Iraq. And back in 1980 he should have been far seeing enough not to be conned by the West into wasting precious resources in attacking Iran, which left him depleted in 1991 when having to face the Americans, which depletion was compounded by 2003.

    Yes, i agree that Israel won’t initiate the assault, wanting the Americans to do it, but one does not taunt a nuclear power – if Jafari was reported correctly.

    Two days on, i feel more strongly America isn’t now going to attack Iran, as that Mossad hit on the Benghazi Consulate on Netanyahu’s orders destroyed all North African, Middle East, Central Asian and Far East policy positions, as co operation with Americans – and Israelis too, will become unacceptable.

    If anyone is wondering why Netanyahu would do such a dumbass thing, it was because he couldn’t help himself, even though he knew that the falseflag cover for that hit risked everything.

    Obama offended him deeply in snubbing his invite to meet him in NYC, choosing instead to book with a talk show host in that very city. And Obama is a black man, and black men do not snub Jews, especially a Ashkenazi PM of Israel !!

    Insufferable mortification was felt by Netanyahu at this double snub, and by a Black Man !

    So the falseflag op on the Benghazi Consulate was done, with the Innocence of Muslims clip as cover – but the whole thing got way way way out of control, and Netanyahu’s political career is toast, having destroyed Israel’s prospects for co existence in the ME, by making the Americans very unwelcome there now.

    Addendum; this 14minute clip was done by Jews to rouse the Muslim street to advance what Regional objective ?

    Clearly there was no objective to advance, as all objectives are nullified by that sense of deep outrage. For example, how is the assault on Syria advanced to thereby justify the planned assault on Iran ? It is not.

    Therefore, ask yourself, dear reader, why was the Benghazi Consulate hit ordered, and by whom ?

    michael mazur commented on Iran warns ‘nothing will remain’ of Israel if military action begins.

    ” – if Jafari was reported correctly.”

    Why waste our time in speculation or in such distraction?

    Looks like inbred Israel is going to get a few missiles up their butts.

    After mass murdering the American Natives by the millions, White European inavders and squatters (like the Zionists!) with their Black African and Hispanic Killers directly murdered millions of Germans, Koreans, Vietnamese, Philipinos, Cambodians, Latin Americans, Arabs, Iranians (thanks to treacherous Sadddam), Afghanis (thanks to treacherous Pakistan), now Syrians (thanks to treacherous Arabs!), Lebanese, Somalis, Sudanese, and indirectly more millions in Algeria, Rwanda, etc.

    For decades many of their soldier assassins have been lamenting how they were paid back with scorn and rejection by their own wives and government, and cried (like their Israeli acolytes!) over the slightest scratch they got after raping, murdering and torturing innocent and defenceless men, women, children and infants.

    But, this time I hope they will not cry over scratches only, but over a LOT MORE THAN SCRATCHES, GOD willing!

    I do not pray for VENGEANCE like the Jews do, TALMUDIC VENGEANCE. I just pray for JUSTICE, JUST RETRIBUTION whether divine or human! Some people believe in KARMA!

    Presently I prefer the tactics of the Knights of the Templar. I ask, had the Magna Carta been respected or the true USA Constitution been implemented, many a great man and woman such as the Joan of Arc (who was actually a Knight of the Templar) would have been respected their reincarnation into the beautiful people of Palestine. Palestine is the incarnated rebirth of the Knights of the Templar. Forget what you have heard about the Knights of the Templar. Forget what Israel speaks through its bitch America who is actually Palestine.

    Remember Rachel Corrie.

    These are the men and women who rebirthed our world into the perfect and True Divine Light.

    The Temple of Solomon has truly been dissolved.

    We don’t know it yet, and can’t see it yet, but we actually are quite free.

    The Great Nation of Iran.

    Umm…edit….throught its bitch America……who it would like to describe is Palestine…….IS NOT.
