Iran: We'll send our ballistic missiles to Tel Aviv
Jerusalem Newswire (Link) - Stan Goodenough (November 22, 2009)
Before the dust settles from Israel's attacks on Iran's nuclear facilities, the Islamic Republic will send its ballistic missiles into the very heart of Tel Aviv.
This was spelled out at the weekend by a deputy of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's representative in the Revolutionary Guards, Mojtaba Zolnour.
It came hours before Iran launched what it described as "huge" war games intended to "promote [the] military power of the armed forces against any attack," according to a Brigadier General Ahmad Mighani quoted in Iranian television.
The verbal threats and military exercises comprise the latest saber rattling on the part of the Muslims in Tehran - a leadership that regularly denies the Holocaust even as it prepares to perpetuate another once against Israel.
Instead of forcefully confronting the genocidal government of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the United States and European Union have done nothing more effective than repeatedly threaten sanctions.
Iran has made full use of the space afforded it by this appeasement approach to race ahead with its efforts to achieve nuclear capability.
In the words of a Christian Zionist who served for many years as a tank commander in Israel's Armored Corps - the international community is nearly ready to allow a second Holocaust to take place.
"Israel has become a thorn in the flesh of the world," he said. The sooner it is erased from the Middle East the happier mankind will be.
