A senior Iranian legislator says Zionist regime will receive a crushing response and cease to exist in case it makes the folly of launching a military strike against the Islamic Republic.
According to Press TV, Chairman of Iran Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Saturday that the Zionist regime represents the US hegemony in the Middle East.
He stated: “Although the Zionist lobbies are exerting great influence on the US administration, the Zionist regime will have no power of its own in the absence of the US support.”
Blaming Britain for the formation of Israel on parts of the Muslim territories in 1948, Boroujerdi asserted that Tel Aviv lacks strategic depth and national identity.
The Iranian lawmaker went on to say that the Zionist regime’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon in 2000, and its failure in the 33-day war with Lebanon in the summer of 2006, the 22-day offensive against the blockaded Gaza Strip at the turn of 2011, and the eight-day aggression against the Gaza Strip in November 2012 clearly demonstrated Zionist regime’s vulnerability against anti-Zionist resistance front in the region.
Boroujerdi pointed out: “Despite its claims of being the fourth strongest military power in the world, the Zionist regime is too powerless to be regarded as a major power in the regional strategic equations.”
