Iranian General: Forces in Syria "Awaiting Orders" to Destroy Israel

(MEMRI) On June 8, IRGC deputy commander Hossein Salami said: "Seventy years have passed since the policy of England and America planted in the Islamic world an accursed and criminal tree [i.e., Israel]. For 70 years, this poisoned dagger has been embedded in the body of the Islamic ummah, and all the problems of the Islamic world stem from the existence of the false...regime named Israel." "The Imam [Khomeini] spread the rationale of eradicating Israel as a new notion in the world's political discourse....The Islamic Revolution created a mighty power called Hizbullah, that today, as the Zionist regime itself acknowledges, has over 100,000 missiles ready for launch." "Today an international Islamic army has been formed in Syria, and the voices of the Muslims are heard near the Golan....Orders are awaited, so that...the life of this regime will be ended for good. The life of the Zionist regime was never in danger as it is now." "Iran invites the Muslims to jihad, and the spirit of jihad today breathes in the body of the Muslim nations. The young Muslims who care are proud of fighting the Zionists, the Americans, and their allies, and becoming a martyr is an honor for them."
