Strongman of the Zionist regime, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has attacked democratically elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani after the latter called Israel a “cancerous tumor” in the Middle East.
“Israel knows very well how to defend itself against the murderous Iranian regime,” Netanyahu said late on Saturday, according to the Jerusalem Post. “The defamation of Rouhani, who calls for the destruction of Israel, proves yet again why the nations of the world need to join the sanctions against the Iranian terrorist regime that threatens them.”
In reality, Israel has seen a drastic reduction in its own force potential, not only in its own right, but also in connection with the reduction of U.S power in the middle-east. Iranian backed proxies of Hezbollah defeated the IDF – Israel’s offensive force, over a decade ago in one of the most embarrassing upsets in the history of the region. Since then, the gap between Iran’s force potential and Israel’s has grown even wider.
The commentary from Netanyahu comes in response to Rouhani’s speech in which the Iranian president criticized the West for the creation of the State of Israel and also criticized Israel for being a tool in the hands of the West.
One of the “most important effects of World War II was the formation of a cancerous tumor [Israel] in the region,” Rouhani said, urging the Muslim world, including Saudi Arabia, to unite against Israel and the United States.
“They have mobilized a power in the region that completely obeys the West in regional affairs,” the Iranian president said, adding that “they formed the false Israeli regime and killed and displaced the historic nation of Palestine.”
During his speech, Rouhani urged Saudi Arabia, a well-known US ally, to join a united front against Israel, saying that Tehran considers the Saudis as “brothers” and “does not [require] $450 billion “, alluding to Riyadh’s trade agreements with Washington.
In his speech, Rouhani said that if Riyadh submits to the West, Tehran will regard the act as a “treason against its [common] religion” and “against future generations of this region.”
This is likely to fall on deaf ears however as Saudi Arabia is dominated by the Wahhabi sect of Sunni Islam, that considers the Shi’ites as heretics and a bigger enemy to Islam than any other entity. It is for this reason that Saudi Arabia are creating ties and relations with Israel against Iran.
