Secretary of the Iranian Expediency Council Mohsen Rezai: Zionist Employ "Iceberg Doctrine" in Establishing the Global Israeli Empire

Following are excerpts from an interview with Secretary of the Iranian Expediency Council Mohsen Rezai, which aired on Channel 1, Iranian TV, on September 25, 2008.

Mohsen Rezai: [The Zionists] have reached the conclusion that concentrating all the Jews in [Israel] is not in their favor. Moreover, they deem it unfeasible. Therefore, they developed the "Iceberg Doctrine." Generally, only a small part of the iceberg is visible, protruding from the ocean – for example, only 10 percent may be visible, while 80-90 percent is under water. The 10 percent may give the impression of being something enormous, but most of the iceberg is in fact underwater. Similarly, they have reached the conclusion that they should lure part of the Jewish people to Palestine, occupy it, and establish a Jewish state there, while placing the other 80-90 percent of the Jews in global political and economic organizations. The invisible part of Zionism supports the part that is visible.


Zionism had three goals. The first was to establish a Jewish state, the second was to establish the "Greater Israel," and the final stage was to establish the "Great Global Israeli Empire."


They haven't yet had the opportunity to plan the Great Israeli Empire, but the Zionists who are pulling the strings in the world are secretly, behind closed doors, still discussing this.


Every so often, you hear that several times over the past year or two, Israel had its planes ready to attack Iranian nuclear facilities, but was deterred from doing so out of fear of Hizbullah in Lebanon and the Intifada in Palestine. Israel was afraid that if it attacked [Iran], it would be attacked from within Palestine and by Lebanon. Consequently, Iran's support of Lebanon and Palestine serves as a deterrent, and will strengthen our national security.
