“Heap of ash” instead of Tel Aviv; “America is indeed the big Satan”

Thursday, 5 July 2012

Ahmad Khatami, member of the Assembly of Experts, said that “If Israel decides to go mad (and attack Iran), the Islamic Republic’s response would be such that instead of Tel Aviv (in Hebrew tel means hill or heap), there will be a heap of ash.” Regarding the recent sanctions imposed on Iran, Khatami said that Iran has been dealing with sanctions of various severities for the past 30 years, adding that “America is currently in charge of leading the opposition against the Islamic Republic (of Iran). Indeed, Khomeini’s interpretation was correct and America is indeed the big Satan…. Under the current circumstances, Iran’s pulse is in the hands of the Supreme Leader, and he is the only person to decide what should be done about America. No one has the right to discuss this issue, just as any decision about relations with the US is the responsibility of the Supreme Leader.”
