Egyptian cleric Muhammad Al-Zoghbi said in a January 6, 2020 interview on Al-Rahma TV (Egypt) that "the Jews and the Zoroastrian Iranians are two sides of the same coin." In addition, Al-Zoghbi said that the United States' January 3 killing of IRGC Qods Force commander General Qasem Soleimani spells the end of the Iranian regime. He said that Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei was crying at Soleimani's funeral because Iran's arms have been cut off.
Muhammad Al-Zoghbi: "I have always said that the Jews and the Zoroastrian Iranians are two sides of the same coin. Also, when you talk about the Jews, you are talking about America, and vice versa. '[The Jews and Christians] will never be pleased [with you].' This is why Allah tied these two evil twins together in the Quran. [The Quran says]: 'They will never be pleased with you,' that way or the other. You could say that this is beyond dispute.
"Regarding [Soleimani's death] – is this the end [of Iran]? I am certain that this is the end of Iran's proxies, collaborators, and agents."
Interviewer: "Are you sure that this is the end?"
Muhammad Al-Zoghbi: "Yes, of course. For several months I have been certain that the Iranian regime is done for. Anybody who does not see this is completely blind. The Iranian regime has reached ultimate senility, and this is why we saw Khamenei crying for the first time yesterday. This is not just about the killing of Soleimani. Not at all. [Khamenei] saw [Iran's] arms being cut off entirely. This is why Khamenei cried only yesterday. Not over Qasem Soleimani, but over... Qasem Soleimani was nothing but a mercenary. He is crying over his arms having been cut off, and over seeing them fall off while he is still alive."
