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.

    Young Syrian Jewish Restauranteur Continues a Family Legacy

    JNS.org – At the turn of the century, a young Jewish immigrant arrived in New York. So begins the history of many American Jewish families. It is 27-year-old Albert Allaham’s story, too, with a few unusual twists. Albert’s “century” is the 21st—he arrived almost 100 years after the massive waves of European Jewish immigration. Rather than coming from a small town along the Danube river, his shtetl was Damascus. His first American business was not a pushcart on the Lower East [...]

There’s plenty more on the Cofizz menu, but you get the idea. Dani Mizrahi and Amir Amshalm, two Israeli men in their early 30s, asked themselves: Why not launch a take-out food joint in busy neighborhoods around Jerusalem where everything—and that means everything—goes for five shekels, or about $1.50. They’d seen the concept take off in Tel Aviv, where [...]
