Ali Shirazi, Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's representative in the IRGC's Quds Force, said in a November 4, 2019 speech that aired on Yazd TV (Iran) that the Iranian people's confrontation with America, which he said is in keeping with the teachings of the Quran, the Prophet Muhammad, and the Jurisprudent Ruler, will continue until the leaders of the White House and of Israel are annihilated and until the "oppressive foundations of the global arrogance are disrupted." He added: "Allah willing, [this] collapse will occur as soon as possible." Shirazi delivered his speech at a rally celebrating the anniversary of the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, which led to the Iran hostage crisis.
Following are excerpts:
Ali Shirazi: The Iranian people are facing the global arrogance in keeping with the teachings of our religion the teachings of the Quran, the teachings of the Prophet [Muhammad], the teachings of the imams, and the teachings of the current Jurisprudent Ruler. The confrontation with America will continue until the oppressive foundations of the global arrogance are disrupted, and until the leaders of the White House and of the Zionist regime are annihilated.
Allah willing – and in the words of our honorable Leader – today's young generation will see the collapse of Israel and America. Allah willing, with the support of this people, we hope that this collapse will occur as soon as possible.
