Iranian paper: Great War To Wipe Out Israel ComingTopics: Iran
I'm shaking my head in disbelief, wondering just how long the West is going to continue to put up with Iran's bellicoseness before they realize that it's Iran or them - with no existing middle ground. Meanwhile ....
[...] Iranian newspapers Kehyan and and Resalat have urged Muslims around the world to prepare for a 'great war' to destroy the State of Israel.Continue reading.
The newspapers published the editorials, translated from Persian by MEMRI , the Middle East translation service, to mark 'Quds' day on October 20, an Iranian 'holiday' calling for the "liberation" of Jerusalem and war against Israel.
[...] "Just as in one 33-day war more than 50 percent of Israel was destroyed, and the hope of its supporters for the continued life of this regime was broken, it is likely that in the next battle, the second half will also collapse."
"On that day... Jordan will not be able to prevent the Jordanian Islamists from operating through the long Jordan-Palestine border, and the millions of Egyptian Islamists... will not let the Sinai-Israel border remain quiet, and the Syrian Golan Heights will not remain as a (mere) observer of the battle. That day is not so far off."
The Resalat newspaper struck a similarly bellicose tone with an editorial entitled "Preparations for the Great War."
Couple Iran's rhetoric with their announcement that they intend to install tens of thousands of uranium-enriching centrifuges and as a senior U.S. official said yesterday - we have nothing less than a "cold jolt" for doubters of Iran's nuclear arms ambitions.
While Tehran insists its goal is civilian energy production, experts say 50,000 centrifuges could produce 20 kilograms of weapons-grade uranium in less than a month.And in a very much related reading, the West needs to wake up to the fact that the ISG's Iran 'partnership' plan is nothing less than "pie in the sky" navel contemplation.
Meanwhile, a leaked report from the International Atomic Energy Agency in Geneva says the agency was investigating traces of plutonium found in containers at a waste storage site in Iran.
