Israel warns Iran this could be last anniversary

Israel warns Iran this could be last anniversary Israel warns Iran this could be last anniversary

Today marks the fortieth anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in Iran - the year-plus struggle, ending in February 1979, that resulted in the ouster of the Shah and the ascendance of a zealous Islamist theocracy that has ever since been in a perpetual state of cold war with the broader West.

U.S. President Donald Trump pulled out of Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers a year ago and reimposed sanctions on Tehran, dealing a blow to the country's economy.

On Feb. 11 that year, Iran's military stood down after days of street battles, allowing the revolutionaries to sweep across the country while the government of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi resigned.

"I bow in admiration to Iran's resilient people who - despite hardships and grievances - today poured into streets by the millions to mark 40th anniv of their Islamic Revolution, which some in the United States wished would never come", Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted.

Iranians burn flags of the United States during commemorations of the 40th anniversary of Islamic Revolution in the capital Tehran on February 11, 2019.

Life-size replicas of Iranian-made cruise and ballistic missiles stood in a statement of defiance after the USA previous year reimposed sanctions following its withdrawal from a deal on Tehran's nuclear programme.

In this February 11, 2016 file photograph, an Iranian woman holds the national flag during a rally commemorating the 37th anniversary of the Islamic revolution, in Tehran, Iran.

Washington alleges Iran's launches defy a U.N. Security Council resolution calling on Iran to undertake no activity related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.

Iranians visit a weaponry and military equipment exhibition in the capital Tehran on Febraury 2, 2019, organized on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Isranian revolution.

The large turnout in state-sponsored rallies came as Iranians face rising prices, food shortages and high inflation that have triggered waves of protests.

In January, Mr Rouhani said Iran was facing its worst economic crisis since the Shah was toppled.

But he remained defiant on Monday as Iranians recalled the end of a monarch who catered to the rich.

Iran "will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa" to the ground if Washington attacks the Islamic Republic, a commander for its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said earlier Monday to mass crowds celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Islamic revolution, according to Russian news channel Sputnik.

"I don't ignore the threats from the Iranian regime, but I'm also not intimidated by them", Netanyahu said in a Hebrew-language video.

"If this regime makes the terrible mistake of trying to destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa, it will not succeed", the Israeli leader said. "They would do well to take that into account".

Today, the United States, its Arab allies and Israel are trying to counter Tehran's growing influence in the Middle East, where it has proxies in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.

Cleric Hossein Firouzi told AFP Iran's revolution had achieved everything it set out to in terms of military power, political identity and scientific achievements.
