Quds Force? What Quds Force? Their only job is to kill Arabs and overthrow Arab regimes. When was the last time the Quds Tuz Force engaged Israel?

Create more chaos in Arab countries instead of showing muscles to fight the Jewish state? Why have you not sent a single one scud missle from Iran to Israel?

Because they will do it at the right time and at their own chosing. Meaning never. Moughniyeh and his son and many others killed and what have they done in retaliation? Nothing! Mitwalis and yshoodis are اولاد العم
