If you go to the website of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists who give us the doomsday clock, look under the headline ‘Iran’ and you won’t find them ever pointing out Iran as a threat to world peace. The threats are those who actually have nuclear weapons, which according to the scientists, Iran does not. Their biggest concern is how US/Israel keeps provoking Iran, and also other countries who do posses a nuclear program.
“Trump’s reneging on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is a severe blow to nonproliferation in general because the agreement represents the highest standards of nuclear transparency and verification ever negotiated. In his belligerent speech announcing the decision, Trump referred to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s theatrical presentation last week, which sought to raise questions about Iranian compliance with the JCPOA. What Trump did not mention was that Iranian compliance has been verified in 11 meticulous IAEA reports since the deal went into effect in January 2016 as well as by the UN secretary general. Trump’s action not only undermined the responsible international bodies that deal with nonproliferation but also admonishes America’s closest allies, who strongly pushed for him to remain in the agreement.” thebulletin.org
Responding to threats today by an Iranian military commander to destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa, Netanyahu warned that military action by Israel would put an end to Iran’s “revolution.”
By World Israel News Staff lies
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed threats issued today by Iranian military leader Yadollah Javani, who claimed the Islamic Republic’s military would decimate Israeli cities like Tel Aviv and Haifa if the US attacks Iran.
Netanyahu responded in Hebrew on social media, posting a video in which he warned, “I don’t ignore Iran’s threats, but I’m also not intimidated.”
He added, “If [the Iranian] regime makes a terrible mistake and tries to destroy Tel Aviv or Haifa, it won’t succeed. And it will be the revolution’s last anniversary they ever celebrate.”
Javani’s remarks were issued at a rally celebrating the Islamic Revolution’s 40th anniversary, a milestone marked with aggressive speeches by Iranian leaders, military parades, and gatherings at which regime supporters chant the popular slogan, “Death to America!”
COLOR US UNIMPRESSED: The world heard even harsher bluster a few months ago. And Iranians have heard them —albeit more civilized ones—for 40 yrs. We’ve been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, incl our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries. BE CAUTIOUS!
