The commander of Iran’s Basij force, Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, has estimated that Israel will be destroyed within the next ten years, wiped out by the Palestinians. He also predicted that the US will be wiped out by 2035.

Addressing students on Monday, General Naqdi, expressed his hope that the “notions, thoughts and ideology that led to Iran’s Islamic Revolution would help Palestinians get rid of Israel in the next 10 years,” Iran’s Fars news reported.

He said that the Islamic Revolution helps fund the Palestinian fight against Israel. He went on to give examples of how the Islamic Revolution was responsible for feats, such as ridding Iraq of Saddam Hussein and helping Lebanon and Iraq get rid of the Americans.

“Considering these developments, liberation of Palestine by the Islamic Revolution is not unlikely at all,” Naqdi said.

This rhetoric goes in line with Iran’s often stated support for anti-Israel terror groups, including Hamas.

On top of these comments Naqdi also made the bold prediction that, according to Iranian analysis, the US will collapse by 2035. However, he did state that date “is an optimistic analysis as this will take place much earlier.”
