August 30 - Khamenei Aide: Fighting the 'Zionist Regime' is Our Policy
Article: Israel And The Last Days
Iran is continuing its verbal attacks on Israel, with the latest remarks coming on Saturday by a close aide to the Islamic Republicís Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The aide, Seyed Mahmoud Nabavi, was replying to British Foreign Secretary Phillip Hammond's recent remarks that Tehran has changed its policy on Israel, and underlined that fighting the ďZionist regimeĒ is Iranís everlasting policy.
"Fight against the illegal Zionist regime is one of the immutable policies of Iran which has always been maintained," Nabavi told the semi-official Fars news agency.
He blasted Hammond's comments and said, "Such words are incorrect since one of the driving goals of the Islamic Revolution has been campaign against the arrogant powers. We havenít recognized the Zionist regime since the beginning of the Islamic Revolution and such a policy will continue," Nabavi stressed.
"Our positions against the usurper Zionist regime have not changed at all; Israel should be annihilated and this is our ultimate slogan," Sheikholeslam told reporters in Tehran.
Despite the nuclear deal that was signed between Iran and the West, Khamenei has continued to bash Israel and the United States. Recently, Khamenei went so far as to publish a new book on the topic of outwitting the United States and destroying Israel.
