Gholamreza Qasemian, who is the head of the library, museum, and archives of the Iranian Majles, said in a lecture posted on August 26, 2023 by Sarcheshmeh Nour on Aparat (Iran) that Israel will self-destruct within three years, and that this will be followed by a "final war" in which Iran will confront Saudi Arabia and conquer Mecca. He added that Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has said that it is not a problem that Saudi Arabia is accumulating weapons, since the mujahideen will capture them.
Gholamreza Qasemian: "It is really how the Leader has said that we have reached a pinnacle. I will give you a bargain. Israel only has three years left to exist. There is even no need for a war. [The Quran says:] 'They destroy their homes with their own hands.' [Israel] will self-destruct. There are now all kinds if signs of its [imminent] annihilation. What on Earth do we do when this happens?
"There are Quranic issues that should not be discussed openly. Only between us, I can confirm that the Arbaeen [Pilgrimage] at that time will be extraordinarily glorious, and will get worldwide attention. Who will we face at the final war? The Hejaz. Saudi Arabia, which is the America of the Arabian [Peninsula]... This will lead to the conquest of the main Qibla and the Hidden Imam will reappear there.
"Since they know this, they have snipers all around the Masjid Al-Haram. The Leader [Khamenei] said this somewhere, but never repeated it. He said that it was not a problem that the Saudis are buying lots of weapons, because these weapons will be captured by the mujahideen."
