It’s no surprise that many Islamic nations are against any recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Iran may be Israel’s main potential enemy, and has recently threatened Israel’s destruction over the issue.
BEIRUT (Reuters) – “Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital will hasten the country’s destruction, Iran’s defence minister said on Monday, while a top Revolutionary Guards commander phoned two Palestinian armed groups and pledged support for them.”
“Iran has long supported a number of anti-Israeli militant groups, including the military wing of Lebanon-based Hezbollah, which the deputy commander of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards, Brigadier General Hossein Salami, said was “stronger than the Zionist regime.”
