Iran’s saber-rattling and its calls to destroy Israel are more or less constant, and this is yet another indication that the bloodthirsty Islamic regime in Tehran doesn’t mean just to talk; it will act to destroy Israel as soon as it possibly can. The United Nations would not tolerate these repeated vows by one member state that it will wipe out another member state, and direct action to do so, if the targeted nation were any one other than Israel. But when it comes to Israel, any threat, any provocation, any outrage is welcomed by the UN, which is dominated by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
This is yet more of the poison fruit of Obama’s nuclear pact with the world’s leading state sponsor of terror. And there will be even more. It is no small comfort that we now have a President that won’t lay down to these savages. Hit ’em hard.
“Iran news: Tehran building ‘ballistic missile factory’ – Israel releases satellite images,” by Charlie Moloney, Express, September 1, 2018:
SATELLITE images released by Israel appear to show a missile factory being built by Iran as Tel Aviv accused the nation of constructing ballistic munitions capable of reaching Israel’s capital city.
The development, which appears to be a factory, is being built in northwest Syria, near the town of Baniyas.
It lies in an area protected by the Russian S-400 aerial defence system, one of the most sophisticated in the world.
The S-400 can engage multiple aerial targets within a 400 kilometre range and is a threat even to American aircraft.
ImageSat International, the Israel-based company whose satellite images captured the growing development, said its layout was similar to Parchin, Iran’s top secret missile development centre.
They added that as the Syrian seven-year-long civil war winds down it is reasonable to assume the missiles are being developed to add to Iran and Hezbollah’s arsenals for use against Israel.
Iran has stated that it will increase its ballistic and cruise missiles capacity, as well as acquire a new generation of fighter planes and sumbarines [sic], but they say it is purely defensive.
Mohammad Ahadi, deputy defence minister for international affairs told Iranian state news: “Increasing ballistic and cruise missile capacity and the acquisition of new generation fighters and heavy and long-range vessels and submarines with various weapons capabilities are among the new plans of this ministry.
“We have the necessary infrastructure and what we need to do is research and development, and at the same time upgrade and update the defence industry while relying on the country’s very high scientific capacities and tens of thousands of graduates in technical fields and engineering.”
Iran says its missile programme is is not negotiable, defying the United States and European countries.
Israeli media sources argue this factory will be adding to an Iranian arsenal stored in Iraq, which they say is pointed at Israel….
