‘Anti-Iran war rhetoric Israeli blunder’

Politics - Iran's Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani has scoffed at Israel’s war rhetoric against the Islamic Republic, saying the Israeli regime is making a mistake by threatening military action.

“This is the Zionist regime’s [of Israel] stupidity to raise the issue of an attack on Iran,” Larijani said in the northwestern Iranian city of Orumiyeh on Wednesday.

He described the idea of an aggression on Iran as a foolish mistake on the part of Israel.


“…No country dare to attack Iran,” he added.

He said the Islamic Republic will defend itself against any aggression.

On October 4, Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan downplayed Israel’s warmongering threats against Tehran and said the Israeli regime is “too weak to dare make such a brazen move.”


“[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s recent aggressive reaction and warmongering remarks shows the Islamic Republic of Iran’s political success and influence in the international arena,” Dehqan said.

Addressing the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly on October 1, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened unilateral military action against Iran to dismantle the Islamic Republic’s civilian nuclear facilities.

He repeated his baseless accusation that Tehran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons, saying, “If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone.”

Israel’s warmongering remarks against Iran came as a recent national poll in the United States shows that 75 percent of Americans favor direct diplomatic negotiations with Iran over the country’s nuclear energy program.

The US, Israel, and some of their allies have repeatedly accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

Tehran has categorically rejected the allegation, arguing that as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it is entitled to develop nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

In addition, the IAEA has conducted numerous inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence showing that the Iranian nuclear program has been diverted toward non-civilian objectives.
