A senior Iranian official has warned Israel not to provoke Iran a day after Israel’s prime minister issued a similar warning to Tehran.

Ali Shirazi, an aide to Iran’s supreme leader, was quoted by the semi-official Fars news agency as saying Iran is capable of destroying Israel. He says “if you provide an excuse for Iran, Tel Aviv and Haifa will be razed to the ground.”

At a Holocaust memorial ceremony Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Iran not to “test Israel’s resolve.”

Iran has repeatedly predicted Israel’s demise, and supports armed groups pledged to its destruction.

Netanyahu has said Israel will not tolerate an Iranian military presence in Syria, especially along the border. Iran has sent troops and allied militiamen to support Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces.



  1. Obviously Iran has no real knowledge of history. The Assyrians, the Romans, the Greeks, the Christians, the Russian Czars, the communists the Nazis and many others have tried to proselytize or eradicate Jews. For thousands of years no one has destroyed Judaism. The Ayatollahs of Iran would do well to remember the words of a devoted frum friend of mine. I mentioned to Dovid that the leading Nazis committed suicide to avoid punishment. Dovid replied “Gerry were do you think they are NOW !!!”

    A goy,

  2. Goy, don’t make the mistake of thinking that destroying the secular state of israel means destroying Judaism. Judaism and Jews will flourish forever whatever happens to israel.

  3. @avreimi Have some basic decency; don’t call him “goy”, his name is Gerry Mullen. Also if the Arabs ever defeat the secular government in a war; the massacre of Jews in the aftermath would rival the Holocaust R”L.
