Iranian paper: Great war to wipe out Israel coming - News from Israel, Ynetnews

Iranian paper: Great war to wipe out Israel coming - News from Israel, Ynetnews:

"Iranian newspapers Kehyan and and Resalat have urged Muslims around the world to prepare for a 'great war' to destroy the State of Israel.

The newspapers published the editorials, translated from Persian by MEMRI , the Middle East translation service, to mark 'Quds' day on October 20, an Iranian 'holiday' calling for the 'liberation' of Jerusalem and war against Israel.

'Hizbullah destroyed at least half of Israel in the Lebanon war... Now only half the path (to its destruction) remains,' an editorial in the conservative Keyhan newspaper declared.

'It was proven that, by means of an offensive operation that need not be equal to Israel's moves, it is possible to neutralize the Zionist navy,' the article said triumphantly.

'Great war not far off'

It continued: 'Just as in one 33-day war more than 50 percent of Israel was destroyed, and the hope of its supporters for the continued life of this regime was broken, it is likely that in the next battle, the second half will also collapse.'"
