A close look at Iran's constitution reveals it is a "war document" that calls for the establishment of a universal holy government to rule the world, says Bill Siegel, author of the book "The Control Factor: Our Struggle to See the True Threat."

"What the constitution reveals — I call it the regime's real critical position paper on the issue — is that if you couple it with nuclear weapons, that's a disaster we cannot survive," Siegel told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"This constitution, which was written during the Khomeini revolution, outlines a revolution, and it still applies. This revolution is explained in the constitution. It's global, it's offensive as much as it's defensive, and it's driven by what it calls Islamic criteria, which is to fight the war.

"In one of the translations, they use the word, the phrase, 'holy war.' We in America try to cover that up and pretend it doesn't exist, but it is a war document," Siegel said.

One translated passage in the document reads: "Accordingly, the army of the Islamic Republic and the Revolutionary Guards are to be organized in conformity with this goal, and they will be responsible not only for guarding and preserving the frontiers of the country but also for fulfilling the ideological mission of jihad or holy war in God's way. That is, extending the sovereignty of God's law throughout the world."

Siegel said the constitution concludes with a declaration that these steps are necessary to "witness the establishment of a universal holy government and the downfall of all others."
