Website: Iran has 170 Missiles Aimed at Tel Aviv, Some Equipped With Biological Warheads

Iranian President Ahmadinejad.

WND reported that Iran has 170 ballistic missiles aimed at Israel, some equipped with biological warheads.

The source cited by the website, who served in Iran’s Intelligence Ministry and who recently defected, told WND that the missiles are placed in underground silos.

Iran has prepared for the total destruction of Israel as well as attacks on European capitals, the source said.

In August, a report in the Washington Times cited Mashregh, the media outlet of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, as saying that Israel will be obliterated by chemical, microbial and nuclear bombs,  and that those weapons of mass destruction will be used first on Tel Aviv by Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad.

As WND noted, the CIA has long warned of Iran’s growing missile threat. In 2010, Defense Secretary Robert Gates warned Congress of Iran’s capability of launching a salvo of missiles at Israel, and possibly European capitals.

The source told WND  that Iran has made significant advances on several fronts including chemical, biological, nuclear and electronic warfare – and that the regime is looking at the deterioration in Syria and the possibility of an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities as an excuse to set the “region on fire.”

In a speech last week, a close adviser to Ayatollah Khamenei, Alireza Panahian, said, “Based on the recent events and the expansion of the Islamic movement in the region … and based on logical calculation, the coming is upon us and in the coming years everything will be finished,” adding that the coming of the last Islamic Messiah, the Shiites’ 12th Imam, is soon to happen. Shiites believe Mahdi’s coming will be preceded by Armageddon.

    This report is complete and utter nonsense. It’s an example of yellow journalism that should be considered an embarrassment to the industry.

    If they try, Iran will cease to exist and people will talk about it for the next 2,000 years.

    • If Iran is attacked first, then all bets are off. You can’t attack someone then expect only an equal response back. Iran’s policy is the same as Israel’s policy, which is “if we are going, we will take you all with us.” This same policy is held by both countries. And it has prevented a war between them. Although rhetoric has been high. So let me play out 2 scenario’s in case I haven’t made this clear:

      1) Israel/United States attacks Iran. Iran annihilates Israel, the US Navy, and US military bases in the region with some missiles possibly going to Europe. Israel and the United States then annihilate Iran.

      2) Iran attacks and annihilates Israel. Israel and the United States respond in kind, and utterly destroy Iran.

      Both of those situations end up without a winner. And that is why Israel has not attacked Iran as it did Iraq or Syria. And it is why Iran has (reportedly) armed Hezbollah with WMD’s but has ensured that they do not use them yet. Both countries are working off of a deterrent model and it has served them well.

    How Jewish Television Pioneer Milton Berle Inspired Modern Comedy Stars

    JNS.org – Today’s comedy superstars, especially those whose careers are driven by television, may very well owe their success to pioneering Jewish entertainer Milton Berle. Born Mendel Berlinger in Manhattan in 1908, Berle became America’s first small-screen star. Aptly nicknamed “Mr. Television,” he influenced and helped promote the work of hundreds of younger comics. “Milton Berle was deceptively successful and very Jewish,” says Lawrence Epstein, author of The Haunted Smile: The Story of Jewish Comedians in America, published the year [...]

    JNS.org – Idan Ravin’s friends chipped in to buy him a humble but life-changing bar mitzvah gift—a basketball hoop his father attached to the roof of his garage. Little did his friends know that years later, he would be the personal trainer of National Basketball Association (NBA) stars Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, and Stephen Curry. Ravin’s new book, “The Hoops Whisperer: On the Court and Inside the Head of Basketball’s Best Players,” details his rise from a Jewish upbringing [...]

    10 New Hollywood Movies That Aim to Show Support for Israel (SATIRE)

    Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging. Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli [...]

    Israeli Judoka Yarden Gerbi (63kg), 25, of Netanya, on Thursday lost the final round at the Judo World Cup, and her world title to Clarisse Agbegnenou of France, at a match held in Russia. “I have mixed feelings,” Gerbi told Israeli Army radio. But, “I shouldn’t assume that I’d win the world Judo championship twice in a row,” she admitted. Gerbi won gold in Rio De Janeiro last year. “When I made my decision, I knew it was going to [...]

    Surviving the Holocaust by Hiding Their Faith (REVIEW)

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

    Twenty Years On, the Real and Radical Legacy of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach

    JNS.org – “He was part hippie, part yippie, part beatnik, and part New Age,” wrote Elli Wohlgelernter in a Jerusalem Post eulogy in 1994, following the Oct. 20 passing of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Twenty years later, more robust accounts of Carlebach’s life have come to the surface. Earlier this year, Natan Ophir published the book Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission & Legacy. This past summer, Rabbi Shlomo Katz’s The Soul of Jerusalem hit the shelves. But even the authors will admit [...]

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the morale of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]
