Iranian ayatollah: Avoid war with Israel+ Israelis protest in TA against war with Iran (Video)

Amid the heated debate in Israel regarding the possibility of a solo attack on Iran and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's harsh statements against the Jewish state, Ayatollah Yousef Sanei, one of the leading interpreters of Muslim law in Iran, has urged the Islamic Republic not to fan the flames of war with Israel.
"We must all do our best to prevent the Zionist attacks on Iran, because if they happen, Iran will be hurt greatly, even though the Zionist regime will be hurt even more," the ayatollah was quoted as saying by the British Broadcasting Corporation's Parsi service.

"We should not act, God forbid, as warmongers in our country and provoke a war. The nation is currently in a special condition, and the most important task is to shut the Zionist regime up with our thoughts, pen, and correct efforts and actions," he said.


Speaking at an observance of the Eid Al-Fitr holiday in Qom, Sanei said "everyone should make an effort so that a possible war with the Zionist regime does not break out, because although the Zionist regime will suffer the hardest, Iran will be damaged."


According to the BBC, he added, "An Israeli attack on Iran would be the greatest crime against the Iranian nation."


After rebuking Israel for its and threats against Iran, Sanei declared, "I support human rights and freedom for all the people, but it is our duty to respond to any possible attack by the Zionist regime in such a way that this regime will never think of such things.


"I warn the Zionist regime that if it takes any military action against Iran, it will be playing with gunpowder and the reaction that it will experience will be such that it will not recover from it; in that case we will not be caring about human rights," he said.


Sanei was one of the clerics who supported opposition elements that contested the results of the 2009 presidential elections. He is viewed as a liberal cleric who is affiliated with the reformist movement.

Ahmadinejadsaid this week that very existence of the Zionist regime is an insult to humanity."


In the speech which was broadcast live on Iranian TV in honor of al-Quds Day, the Iranian president added that "the western powers cannot tolerate criticism of the Zionist regime. They feel compelled to defend it."

The video shows one of the recent protests held in Tel Aviv against striking Iran nuclear facilites. The protests are held in front of the defence headquater and at the evening down below DM Barak residential tower.

In the video they mention Hiroshima and Nagasaky (it was the recent Hiroshima memorial day) and talk about a nuclear clean middle east, including Iran and Israel.

  • The problem as usual comes from religion. Judaism and Islam will NEVER be able to coexist in peace. It is simply impossible since both people's believe their particular god and holy book is fundamentally 100% correct.

    Islam teaches to hate, convert or kill non muslims. Judaism might not be quite so extreme but still teaches the same hatred to Jews which leads to the murder and discrimination which is taking place in Israeli occupied areas.

    War with Iran will do nothing to change anything. The More..

      You have it all wrong buddy.
      There are over 2 million Arabs living inside of Israel in Peace.
      Its the ones in the WB and Gazza that cause most of the problems.
      Jews can coexist with anyone.....our extremists are kept at bay and dont control the country.
      Its Islamic intolerance thats the problem....not Jewish intolerance.
      And that seems to be the problem in every country...not just here in Israel.

      Don't get me wrong Judaism is far nicer in my book than islam. If I had to choose to believe in one of them, I would be in the synagogue faster than you can say 'shalom', but for a non believer like me, when I see the problems that religion causes, it makes me want to weep.

      Murder in the name of, or as a result of conflicts in religion is about the same as killing because of a book on fairy tales. Ludicrous and unspeakably tragic like the slaughter of a clown.

      Stop believing the Arab propaganda....thats all it is.
      Israel only kills terrorists in defense....sure, some civilians get killed too, but never intentionally, and never in the name of religionPeople ignore the fact that the ARabs have tried to wipe Israel with 6 wars and 2 intifadas.
      Israel has a right to protect.

      YOu are right saying the root of the problem is religion......because it definitely isnt land. They could of had their share of Palestine many times.
      But these Arabs are no More..

  • "...in that case we will not be caring about human rights," he said."

    What a joke this guy is. When do any of these ayatollah pieces of shit care about human rights? Even if Israel didn't attack, any jew they get their hands on will be tortured. They kill and torture their own people to enforce the will of allah. The closest these pukes can get to asking for peace is to lay out more threats. It's no wonder nations can't get along with Muslims.

    • @weada "jew they get their hands on will be tortured"

      Interesting, cause last time I remembered Iran has the second largest population of Jews in the middle-east and they seem to be living relatively well. They even have a seat in the Parliament. And by-the-way, last I remember the more serious threats are coming from Israel, a nation with over 200 undeclared nukes constantly threatening an attack on Iran with absolutely no evidence of a nuclear weapons program. I have a feeling you d More..

    • @Cheeseman My apologies. I should have said Israelis. Iranian Jews are exactly that- Iranian Jews. If you were an Israeli, would you travel to Iran?

    • @weada Hell no... I wouldn't travel to Iran either way. I wouldn't even consider a free tour unless those crazy mullah are kicked out of power.

    ------------------------------------------------

    It's funny, I lol'd but Ahmadinejad is a hard liner looking to appease his base. He has already been put in the corner a few times by the Ayatollah. Hopefully Ahmadinejad and Netanyahu die together in some gay dance and their souls forever be intertwined with a big ass piece of bacon wrapping them both together.

  • Don't bring a KNIFE to a GUN fight.
    And definitely:
    Don't bring TALKS to a NUCLEAR fight.

    Given the chance - Iran will wipe Israel off the map with zero hesitation.
