Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on September 10, 2017

Benjamin Netanyahu has accused Iran of planting “very dangerous weapons” in Syria in a bid to threaten Israel.

According to the prime minister, Iran is “seeking to plant very dangerous weapons in Syria … for the specific purpose of our [Israel’s] destruction.”

He went on noting that Iran’s alleged actions are directed against Israel, since Tehran “openly calls, daily, for the destruction, the elimination of Israel from the face of the earth.”

Meanwhile, Iran responded to Israeli accusations with harsh words, stressing that the country’s military was capable of defusing any potential threat against Iran.

“The armed forces are delivering their best services and no threat frightens Iran,” Iran’s Armed Forces Chief of Staff, Major General Mohammad Bagheri said as quoted by the news agency IRNA.

Relations between the two countries, which have always been strained, deteriorated last month after two Israeli F-15 fighter jets struck the T-4 airbase in Syria April 9, killing seven Iranians operating in the country on behalf of the government.

The war of words between the two countries has intensified further, after Netanyahu claimed earlier this month that Israel had obtained 100,000 paper and digital documents, which, according to him, irrefutably prove that Iran’s nuclear program had a secret military component, codenamed “Project Amad.”

This declaration was made shortly before a May 12 deadline, when US President Donald Trump to decide whether or not Washington will remain a party to the nuclear agreement.

Nobody seriously intends to attack Israel unless the Zionists strike first.

What destruction? It’s not Israel getting destroyed, it’s the Arab world self destroying itself, don’t you see? So either Kamenei+cronies were saying the truth when they declared they can wipe out Israel, so Netanyahu is not insane but is actually doing what he has to do at preventing it to happen (and be clear, I wouldn’t like to be in Tehran or any Iranian city the day they unleash anything on Israel as it won’t be long until these cities become radioactive parking lots). Now such threats make only sense if they violate the JCPOA, so they’re a bunch of… Read more »

And also you seem to forget that Israel avoided Iran from facing a Saddam with nukes, demolishing the Osirak nuke reactor after Iranians failed to do so. Without Israeli weapons deliveries to Khomeini, while no one else, even the Soviets or Chinese were willing to sell to the mullahs, it just avoided Iran to fell under Saddam’s rule… Now read well what I’ll write. Khomeini had barely no problems with Israel. Now be aware of this : Khamenei is the Farsi translatr of Sayeed Qutb. Qutb was the mastermind behind the Muslim Brotherhood literature and propaganda until Nasser hanged him… Read more »

The only thing nutty proves, over and over, is what a liar he is. Of course, this set of lies is to give the lying twit-in-chief his excuse to violate even more laws. The US and it’s puppets will now go ahead with sanctions, hoping to stir the pot and instigate yet more turmoil. If Europe has any sense, they will tell the buffoon to go F himself. If not, then they too will suffer even more as the sanctions will hurt more than just Iran. Europe was salivating over commercial contracts with Iran. What will these new sanctions do… Read more »

The Iran leaders constantly give the Mossad first and insights to their plans about Israel. Irony.

p.s. The Israeli chief nutter takes all for stupid. Nobody shares plans with Israel. So how can he have a clue about Iranian plans?

Only the deluded psychopath Netanyahoo could believe Iran can grow ” very dangerous weapons ” on Syrian soil. You wouldn’t put it past him to make such a ridiculous claim though ! lol.

It is not forbidden to be able – the Zionist nutter claims the same. They sure out brag each other.

p.s. Their bellicose stance has IMHO interior reasons. Like Napoleon III’s bellicose rhetoric against Bismark’s policies. Such war plans can go wrong. The putative stronger Grande Nation’s emperor lost the war and his throne.
