IRGC Deputy Commander: We Will Hunt the Zionists Down from House to House

In a public address marking Quds (Jerusalem) Day, IRGC Deputy Commander Brigadier-General Hossein Salami warned the "Zionists": "We will hunt you down from house to house, and avenge every drop of blood of our martyrs in Palestine." Salami further said: "The world of Islam will become a graveyard for the policies of America, the Zionist regime, and their reactionary allies in the region."

 

Following are excerpts from the address, broadcast on the Iranian news channel IRINN on July 25, 2014:

 

 

Hossein Salami: Today, the resistance of the Palestinian people keeps on growing. The truth of Palestine will rise from the rubble. The tall palm trees of the Palestinian nation will grow even taller from this formidable Jihad.

 

 

[…]

 

 

The balance of power will shift in favor of the Islamic world. We warn the Zionists: You are a community with no roots, no land, no race, and no history – none of the things that form the identity of a nation. You are a tree without roots, planted in Islamic lands by the British. We will hunt you down from house to house, and avenge every drop of blood of our martyrs in Palestine. This is the awakening of the Muslim nations, in order to bring you down.

 

 

[…]

 

 

[We] will not let America and the Zionists enjoy the slightest taste of victory. From this day on, we expect dawns of great victory. We are certain that [the prophecy] of the divine tradition will be fulfilled, and the world of Islam will become a graveyard for the policies of America, the Zionist regime, and their reactionary allies in the region.
