Israel: “destruction of the Iranian nation”
Posted by Parsin on April 9, 2008
Israeli regime has always been a threat to the whole world. Once in a while they escalate war rumors and try to hide their brutal face by diverting world attention from their massacres in Palestine toward Iran. However, this time they clearly revealed their real intentions about Iranian people!! : “destruction of the Iranian nation”!!
Read the full news:
An Israeli Cabinet minister has warned Iran that any attack on the Jewish state would result in the “destruction of the Iranian nation”.
The comments by Infrastructure Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, a former defence minister, came as Israel held a weeklong countrywide civil defence exercise to practice government and military responses to a national emergency, such as an attack by militant groups or enemy state.
Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has often said Israel should be “wiped off the map” and backs Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas who fought a month-long war with Israel in 2006.
“An Iranian attack would result in a harsh Israeli reaction that would cause the destruction of the Iranian nation,” Ben-Eliezer said. “They are definitely aware of our power.”
Iran is pursuing nuclear technology it says would be used to generate electricity. The US, EU and Israel believe Iran is trying to develop nuclear weapons instead. Iran says it already has long-range missiles that can reach Israel.
Israeli leaders, including Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, have declared that the civil defence exercise is not meant to increase tensions in the region.
Meanwhile, Iran has said it is willing to enter another round of talks with the US over Iraq’s security.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini did not give a possible time for the next round of talks.
Washington has accused Iran of funnelling arms to extremist groups in Iraq, but Tehran denies it.
