Following are excerpts from an interview with General Yahya Rahim-Safavi, general commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, aired by Jaam-e Jam3 TV on October 28, 2005.
General Yahya Rahim-Safavi: The Americans and Israelis should know that the future belongs to Islam. The future depends on the liberation of Palestine and the occupied territories of Afghanistan and Iraq. The Muslim Peoples in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine will eventually cut off the legs of the American, Zionist, and English occupiers from the Islamic lands. The Iraqi people will achieve freedom, and so will the Afghan people.
As for the Zionists... After 57 years of terrorism, of bloodthirstiness, and of committing crimes... Many oppressed women and children in Palestine get martyred every day. The Islamic peoples' hand of wrath will burst forth from its sleeve one of these days, and cast the Zionist criminals into the sea.
