Iranian Leaders on their Desire to Destroy Israel

“There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.” (Proverbs 6:16-19)

It is no secret that Iran openly calls for the destruction of the State of Israel. Here are some comments made by leading Iranian leaders on their desires to annihilate the “Zionist enemies”.
