This regime (Israel) is currently in a weak position and is worried about the exchange of regional capacities among Muslim countries against itself and seeks to save itself from this predicament through threats.” Mehdi Davatgari, member of Iran's Majlis Committee on National Security and Foreign PolicyA member of Iran's Majlis scoffs at Israel’s warmongering against the Islamic Republic, Tel Aviv poses such threats to save itself from regional pressures caused by recent developments in the Middle East. “This regime (Israel) is currently in a weak position and is worried about the exchange of regional capacities among Muslim countries against itself and seeks to save itself from this predicament through threats,” Mehdi Davatgari, a member of the Majlis Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy said on Thursday.
He added that the Israeli regime and the US have been posing threats against Iran over the past three decades since the victory of the Islamic Revolution but such a tactic has failed given the country’s progress in various fields.The Iranian lawmaker emphasized that the threats by the 'fabricated' Israeli regime against Iran show that Tel Aviv is approaching its annihilation. He noted that threats have no impact on the Iranian nation and will strengthen their determination to safeguard and promote the ideals of the Islamic Revolution. Davatgari said the Iranian nation has reinforced its unity and stressed that we would witness the collapse of the Israeli regime in the near future. The US, Israel and some of their allies accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear energy program with Tel Aviv repeatedly threatening Tehran with a military strike. Iran refutes the allegations and maintains that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a committed member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it has every right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes. Iranian officials have also promised a crushing response to any military strike against the country. SF/HJL/MA
