'Arab Spring' Part of Iranian Plot to Dominate
For the first time, an official entity of Iran's Islamic government has detailed the horrific goal of the regime: destroy America and Israel as part of the Muslim "awakening" sweeping Africa and the Middle East.
That "awakening," which the West has labeled the "Arab Spring," is all part of Iran's messianic complex in which it sees itself as the spearhead of a worldwide revolution in which the Shiite version of Islam will dominate humanity.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards' auxiliary, the feared and infamous Basij militia, issued a statement last week in which it said Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has been divinely chosen to impose Islam on all parts of the world. The statement was responding to last Friday's invasion of the Israeli embassy in Cairo, which it called a "nest of spies." The Basij, under the direct supervision of Khamenei, called the embassy invaders "justice-seeking Muslims who have battled Egyptian tyranny."
In its statement, the Basij states that from the regime's very inception in 1979, the Islamic Republic of Iran has condemned what it calls "the illegitimacy of the Zionist regime," which exists as a result of "the plots hatched by imperialist powers such as Britain and America." The Basij claims those powers are the cause of a "series of events, wars and troubles in the region."
After the 1979 Iranian Islamic Revolution, "Muslims everywhere have understood full well that American control of Iran was ended and this blaze of awakening has also now been sparked among Muslims (in other countries)," the statement says. "That awakening (in Iran) has succeeded in causing irreparable damages" to the American economy and security and caused problems to the "Great Satan's" political and cultural institutions.
"The shift in the establishments of the region, preferred by America and Israel, and their growing disposition to Islam, has activated the emergence of movements similar to the Islamic Revolution in Iran, which also endangered American and Israeli interests," the statement says. "The United States and its strategic partner, tyrannical Israel, are clearly petrified of a powerful united Islamic bloc -- led by the Islamic Republic of Iran -- which will totally shift the power in this area of the world."
The Basij says that even non-Muslim countries that are also dissatisfied with the state of the world will begin to seek out "another model" other than America's.
America and its allies don't understand the nature of the rebellions in Islamic countries, and because of their "uninformed and unprincipled confrontationism," the allies have "inadvertently placed themselves in the position to have to come face to face with flourishing glorious revolutions that are both holy and rooted within the Islamic masses," the statement says. "This has been a big slap in the face of those revisionists and deviants who will come to know that this uprising is of the Islamic and revolutionary kind." The Basij says that soon with the leadership of Ayatollah Khamenei, who has directly been chosen by the hidden Imam, both America and Israel will be destroyed and Islam's conquest of the world will begin.
Though Iranian commanders and officials have often reflected the same opinion as the Basij statement, no official statement that details their goal of crushing Israel and the United States has been released -- until now. This announcement by the Basij is significant in that it verifies beyond any doubt that the Islamic regime ruling Iran is truly a messianic one bent on the final worldwide conquest of Islam with the "awakening" as just the beginning.
It is time to understand that the jihadists who hijacked Iran now want to take the rest of the world hostage and are working diligently to arm their missiles with nuclear bombs.
It is only a matter of time for the end of world as the Iranian dictators see it. Will we avert that end?
