Iran’s New Anti-Israel Slogan Recycles Old Hate

“Israel will be destroyed within 25 years” appears to be the new mantra pro­moted by Iran’s pro­pa­ganda machine ahead of Iran’s “National Day to Fight Global Arro­gance” on Novem­ber 4. It marks the anniver­sary of the takeover of the US embassy in Tehran by the Iran­ian stu­dents in 1979.

Posters to pro­mote the slo­gan, cir­cu­lated recently by insti­tu­tions affil­i­ated with the Iran­ian gov­ern­ment, demon­strate an effort to pop­u­lar­ize the motto as its new anti-Israel slo­gan. The words echo a state­ment by Iran’s Supreme Leader Aya­tol­lah Ali Khamenei, which proph­e­sized the destruc­tion of Israel within the next 25 years.…

Press TV Exploits Iran Deal To Promote Anti-Semitism

Press TV, Iran’s government-run English-language news net­work, is exploit­ing the inter­na­tional dis­cus­sion about the Iran nuclear deal to pro­mote anti-Semitic stereo­types of Jews and Israel as war-mongering and exer­cis­ing nefar­i­ous con­trol over the Amer­i­can gov­ern­ment to act against the country’s interests.

Press TV has a long record of pro­mot­ing per­ni­cious anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­ries as “news” to a world­wide audi­ence. Oper­ated by Islamic Repub­lic of Iran Broad­cast­ing (IRIB), Press TV serves as a mouth­piece for Amer­i­can anti-Semites, con­spir­acy the­o­rists, and Holo­caust deniers, who are pre­sented as cred­i­ble experts that help amplify the Iran­ian regime’s hate­ful mes­sages.…
