Iran Leader claims Israel 'A Wound To Be Cleansed'

Hassan Rouhani has called Israel a "Wound to be Cleaned"

President-elect Hassan Rowanhi has stirred anti-Jewish rhetoric on a day of religious celebration ahead of his inauguration.

Iran's president-elect Hassan Rouhani has called Israel an old "wound" that must be removed. These statements would seem to cast doubt on the viability of efforts to revive peace talks betwen the Palestinians and Israel.

"The Zionist regime is a wound inflicted for years on the body of the Muslim world that must be cleansed," Mr Rouhani said to reporters.

His comments echoed those of outgoing president Mahmound Ahmadinejad who earlier whipped up anti-Israel sentiment at an Quds day rally in Tehran.

He said: "I will inform you with God as my witness, a devastating storm is on the way that will uproot the basis of Zionism.

He added Israel had "no place in this region".

Mr Rouhani will formally assume the presidency of Iran this weekend after winning elections held last month by a landslide.

In former remarks, Mr Ahmadinejad accused Israel and its Western supporters of fomenting discord in the Middle East, saying "it was their dream to see the will of regional countries bent on destroying (Israel) diverted towards civil war".

"Who is happy for what is happening in Egypt and Syria?" he asked, charging that Israel celebrating the unrest in those countries.

I think there will be a lot more to come from this statement in the coming days, with previous president Mahmound Ahmadinejad said Israel should "Be wiped from the Map" this is bad news for an already very unstable region, not good at all this. This is breaking news early Friday 2nd August 2013, below he is stating Israel should be no more

If these religious zealots really were wise...they would be wise enough to investigate and study the Bible and see what the future of Israel will be...after all, it is the inpoired Word of God. How can we tell what is written is true and accurate? Nothing has EVER been proved false.

What does it say about the nation of Israel? It staes that no nation will be able to destroy. So, all this stuff that the is said about destroying Israel is silly will never happen.They are protected by the Lord. It's all written in the Word.

I am not fully into the readings Coach, but just talking like this will cause global issues. Iran may be destroyed. For me, and I can only speak for me. No deaths would be good. Sadly there will be. Some idiot will drop a nuke somewhere, it is only a matter of time.

Cheers for the comment and reply Coach.

Well, nations may be wipe out in map but not Israel. Israel is the apple of the eyes of God. If Iran's president would devote his time in understanding the bible. He would know how Israel are precious to God and what bright future awaits in all Israelites in the future times. When he understood that then he will know how foolish he is when he said that speech.
