Advisor To Khamenei: In Future, There'll Be Middle East Without Israel

Yahya Rahim Safavi, security advisor to Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, said during International Qods (Jerusalem) day on September 26 that the countdown to the fall of Israel had begun, and that in the future, the map of the region will be drawn without it.

The major Iranian dailies wrote that the "cancerous growth" called Israel would soon come to an end, and that the armed struggle will be "the last nail in the coffin of the Zionist regime."

In a Qods Day letter he sent thanking Iran's regime leaders for their support for the Palestinians, deposed Palestinian prime minister from Hamas Isma'il Haniya expressed his hope that Khamenei, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, and the other Iranian regime heads would soon pray in liberated Jerusalem.
