Iranian Islamic Scholar Mohammad-Bagher Ebadi said that a return to the implementation of the JCPOA without the complete annulment of the sanctions against Iran is a pipe dream. He made these remarks in a Friday sermon delivered in Birjand, Iran and aired on Khorasan Jonoobi TV (Iran) on March 5, 2021. Ebadi said that Iran has advanced so much militarily, that nobody would even consider carrying out an attack against it. He said that the only benefit of the JCPOA is that it has exposed the U.S. and everyone can now see it for what the leader had always known it was. Ebadi added that Biden is a second-class idiot, while Trump is a first-class idiot. For more information about Mohammad-Bagher Ebadi, see MEMRI TV clip no. 7197.
Mohammad-Bagher Ebadi: "Allah be praised, the Islamic republic has advanced so much militarily that nobody even considers [to attack it]. Not only is this military option no longer on America's table, it is not underneath the table either. There is no such thing.
"Unless the sanctions are completely annulled, returning to the JCPOA and completely implementing it are nothing but pipe dreams.
"The nuclear negotiations had only one benefit, brothers. Only one. JCPOA - everybody got to know America like the Leader had known it. This was achieved by the JCPOA negotiations."
Crowd: "Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America! Death to America!"
Ebadi: "The nuclear talks have made us reach this realization. We owe some of this realization to the stupidity of the first-class idiots in America.
We now hope that [Biden], the second-class idiot who came to power, will not follow in the footsteps of the first-class idiot [Trump]. But the future belongs to the dear Iranian people."
