War is a painful disaster, even if it is for national, defensive or religious reasons. Many countries try to avoid it as much as it can to save its people from its tragic consequences and preserve their homes from devastation and destruction, along with spectre of thousands of dead, wounded, disabled and homeless.
However, Ali Reza Farqani, Iranian editor-in-chief of Arman newspaper, says his country “needs a foreign war,” threatening Washington that pro-Iranian suicide bombers would hit US bases in 112 countries in any possible war.
The author repeated a slogan by the founder of the Iranian regime, Ayatollah Khomeini in the 1980s, when he said that "war is a blessing" in reference to the war between Iraq and Iran, which ended after Tehran was forced to accept the UN resolution calling for a cease-fire between the two countries.
At that time, Khomeini said that he had to submit to the resolution saying: "I drink the cup of poison."
After US President Donald Trump ordered US sanctions against Iran to take effect last Tuesday, with will be further escalated to a more severe level on November 4, Ali Reza Farqani, an Iranian media editor and editor-in-chief ‘Arman Press', has written an article in which he expressed “the readiness of the Iranians to fight the war against the United States of America.”
The Washington Post reported at the end of last April that the Pentagon is working on a plan to counter Iran’s expansion and destabilizing the Middle East through Tehran’s support for armed groups in the region.
“The US military will not face Iran directly, but it will use indirect means to limit its expansion in Syria and Iraq,” General Joseph Leonard Votel, who heads the US Central Command, was quoted as saying.
Ready for war against the US
“We are ready to wage a major war against the United States,” Farqani said in his article. The writer described the war as “jihadist security.”
The editor-in-chief of Arman Press believes that the call for war by Iran would “change the perception of the military and American and Israeli politicians toward the Iranians, and help to stop the talk about the military option.”
The author attempted to interpret and interpret Iran’s call for foreign war as being based on the origin of jihad, claiming that such a war would be between two intellectual models. The first represented theism and the second was humanism.
After describing the details of the differences between the two trends, the hardline Iranian media person issued threats against American officials and warned them: “You have to understand that the next war will ensure the survival of the Islamic Revolution of Iran and eliminate America completely and it will be a war of solidarity for all Iranian Muslims.”
“The Iranian dictionary does not include the word dictionary ‘defeat',” he claimed.
The writer then tried to justify his call for war with America by resorting to the interpretation of Quranic verses on his own, describing the Iranian side as the holy party in this war and the other side in the Holy Land, claiming that Iran is the “front of truth” in such a war.
After a lengthy comparison between the Iranian and American soldier’s preferences and the preference of the Iranian soldier for the other soldiers of the Muslim countries, he addressed the Americans, threatening them with suicide operations in different countries, saying: “America should know that if it entered into a war with Iran, the Hezbollah youth will determine the area of the battlefield far from Iran’s borders and within a period of less than 48 hours will launch suicide attacks.
Threat to rape Obama’s daughter
Ali Reza Farqani was one of the former prime ministers of the government of former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and former ruler of Kish Island in the Gulf, where he left office after disagreements with Ahmadinejad’s government. He is a member of the hardline Islamic movement in Iran and had threatened in his blog to rape the daughter of former US President Obama if Syria was attacked by the United States.
America’s “weak points”, which he considered an easy prey for all the “peoples of the world”, were to threaten to kidnap a member of the family of every minister, ambassador and military commander around the world within one day, he said.
Ali Reza Farqani is a member of the “Ammarioun” headquarters of the radical Iranian pro-Iranian leader and reflects the views of the most extreme spectra in Iran.
