The Menace of Islamic Fascist Republic of Iran: its ideology, its actions and threats
DANGEROUS IDEOLOGY: WORLD DOMINATION / THREATENING ASPIRATIONS
- The governments of the world should know that . . . Islam will be victorious in all the countries of the world, and Islam and the teachings of the Qur’an will prevail all over the world. Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in January 1979
- We must strive to export our Revolution throughout the world. Ayatollah Khomeini on March 21, 1980
- We don’t shy away from declaring that Islam is ready to rule the world. . . . We must believe in the fact that Islam is not confined to geographical borders, ethnic groups, and nations. It’s a universal ideology that leads the world to justice. . . . We must prepare ourselves to rule the world.” Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on January 5, 2006.
- “Israel must disappear from the face of the Earth.” — April, 1991. Imam Mohsen Rabbani. [Iran's representative cleric in Argentina, who became a "diplomat" 4 months prior to the AMIA massacre, which he was behind].
- “It is the mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to erase Israel from the map of the region.” — Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in January 2001
- “One bomb is enough to destroy Israel. . . . In due time the Islamic world will have a military nuclear device.” “Israel is much smaller than Iran in land mass, and therefore far more vulnerable to nuclear attack.” …(explaining: a nuclear attack on Israel would obliterate the state, but the Israeli retaliation would only cause damage to the much larger Muslim world). — Iranian president Rafsanjani in December 2001.
- “Israel must be wiped off the map.” — Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on October 26, 2005
- “God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world without the United States and Zionism.” — Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on October 26, 2005

- Ahmadinejad: “The pretext (Holocaust).. is false … It is a lie based on an unprovable and mythical claim, [...] This regime (Israel) will not last long. Do not tie your fate to it … This regime has no future. Its life has come to an end.” – September, 2009.
- [Referring to Israel] “Cancerous tumour that should be cut and will be cut.” — Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on February 3, 2012 Canada compared the Islamic leader’s remarks to Adolf Hitler’s racist book.
- Iran’s supreme leader called to use nukes on Israel in December 2001.
- In January 2007 its official (heading the nuclear program) threatend to use nukes (if conditions change).

- In April 2010, it threatened that nuclear devices will go off in the US.
- In November 2010, France’s leader N. Sarkozy said that “Missile threat comes from Iran.”
- Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Ayatollah: “Kill all Jews, annihilate Israel.” Planning of wiping out Israel in 9 minutes. Justifying genocide as a moral obligation. February 2012.
SOME OF IRAN, ITS QUDS/HEZBOLLAH CRIMES WORLDWIDE
- Iran-Iraq war (1980, 1,000,000 dead, unleashing the horrific Basij militias who brainwashed children to join as martyrs, who used children to clear out mines).
- Lebanon (killing French and American soldiers 1983;
kidnapping and torturing of Westerners in Leabnon as well as Lebanese Jews 1982-1992;
series of assassination of Christians including PM R. Hariri in coordination with Syria;
clashes in 2007-2008 initiated by Hezbollah)
- France (bombing shopping centers in Paris, 1985/6).
- Greece/Italy (1985, TWA hijacking).
- Spain (1985, restaurant bombing).
- Israel (katyusha-missiles [mortar] attacks on civilians since the 1980s, and the use of Lebanese as ‘human shields,’ when targeting Israeli civilians. Also backing Hamas terrorists and warning Arab-Palestinians not to negotiate for peace.)
- Iraq (bloody hands in aiding Shiites’ attacks, via Hezbolah/Quds forces).
- US, embassy attack (holding hostage for 444 days, 1979);
’9/11′ (aiding the Arab-Islamic hijackers of the 9/11/2001 massacre of 3,000 people).
- Afghanistan (invloved in terror attacks via Hezbolah/Quds forces at least since 2007).

- India, Georgia, (embassies attacks, February 2012). and Thailand (foiled attack resulting in injuries, February 2012).
CRIMES ON ITS OWN PEOPLE
- Oppression and crimes against humanity:
Since its Islamic Revolution, it is been regraded as one of the most oppressive regimes on earth.
A special report has been published: Report on Crimes Against Humanity Committed in Iran on the Orders of Mr. Ali Khamenei, supreme leader of the Islamic Republic.
In the early 1980s Seyyed Asadollah Lajevardi earned the nickname “the Butcher of Evin.” A highlighted period was the summer 1988 prisoners massacre of upto 30,000 people, following a “fatwa” by Ayatollah Khomeini.
Iran’s terrible human rights record has been widely documented. There was more scrutiny at the 2009 brutal crackdown.
- Discrimination, racism, apartheid:
Notwithstading Iran’s tightly-closed prison satate. Reports still come out. For example, in 2010, UN anti-racism panel finds Iran discriminating against Arabs, Kurds, other ethnic minorities There’s that bogus pro- Palestinian politics of the reigning regime degenerates into an anti-Jewish language. Iranian racism is particularly evident in Tehran, where similar racist negativity is directed at provincial Iranians- the Isfahanis, the Rashtis, the Azaris, the Kurds, the Lors, the Baluchis, the Arabs, or what the Tehranis in moments of unsurpassed whitewashed racism call dehatis…
Real (not as in the slanderous slur) Apartheid
From the U.S. Congress in 1998: In Iran, those who believe in the Baha’i faith are forcibly repressed by the Iranian Government. They are denied the right to assemble and elect their religious officials, their property is confiscated and they are denied basic civil and legal rights. More than 200 Baha’is have been killed in Iran since 1989. Christians and Jews likewise face persecution in Iran, including discrimination, imprisonment, and death. One Christian human rights groups describes the treatment of Christians and Jews as “Religious apartheid.”
Since the Islamic Revolution veritable apartheid was created an ‘Islamic apartheid.’
Iran has long been accused of Anti-Arab disctimination, persecution and apartheid.
UNPO declared Iran an, “Unknown Apartheid,” in its bigotry towards minorities.
Iranian students say: The Islamic Republic is ‘a political apartheid.’
Bahais decry: “String Of Human Rights Atrocities, Apartheid Policies Against Iranian Baha’is.
Iranians speak up: “Islamic apartheid Regime in Iran can’t stop our wish for freedom.”
The atrocities of Islamic Apartheid has been around long before they took power in Iran in 1979 Revolution.
There’s a deep religious apartheid in Iran.
A ‘special’ anti-Christian apartheid. and an anti-Bahai bigotry which includes an academic apartheid.
