Iran is not only threatening the United States, but has upped its calls for violence against Israel, as well. The Jerusalem Post reports that Iranian President Rouhani has called for Palestinians to wage jihad against the Jewish state:
Iranian news agency Fars cited Rouhani as charging that the Palestinians should take advantage of allegations that Israel does not seek peace to wage violence in the name of Islam against the Jewish state.
"Today, the world public opinion is faced with this strong argument that the Zionist regime has never been after peace, and this argument and reasoning should be used to show that there is no way, but jihad and resistance for the Palestinians against the usurper regime," he said in meeting with the leader of the Iranian-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Speaking in Tehran to Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah - the leader of the Palestinian terrorist group - Rouhani accused Israel of fueling regional instability and perpetuating "terrorists' operations" to divert attention from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
According to Fars, Rouhani blamed Israel for increased sectarian conflicts in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and North Africa...
