Israel Threatens to Launch Nuclear Attack on Islamic Sites
By Our Staff Writer
THERAN -- A high-ranking Israeli officer threatened that the Zionist regime would launch nuclear attack on Islamic holy sites in the Middle East, an Israeli newspaper said Sunday.
In case Israel was attacked by states or groups, the Jewish state would respond by dropping nuclear bombs on Islamic cities such as Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia and Qom in Iran. The Haaretz newspaper quoted an unidentified high-ranking officer a s saying.
It is an irony of our time Iraq has been suffering for a decade because it is accused of having some capabilities of unconventional weapons, while Israel announces that it possesses nuclear weapons, but there is not any international action against it.
The officer, a guide in the Israeli military academy, was quoted as saying that Israel possesses hundreds of nuclear warheads along with their delivery systems, including long-range ballistic missiles, long-range bombers and nuclear submarines.
Indeed, while is Iraq under the pressure, Israel is the only entity in the Middle East to possess a huge arsenal of weapons of mass destruction, including a sizable nuclear arsenal.
It is unfortunate that the United States, Israel's main protector, has always prevented any serious move to discuss Israel's weapons of mass destruction. But at the same time it has accused a number of other countries of trying to acquire weapons of mass destruction. It has put them under pressure on the basis of the very baseless accusations it has leveled against them.
It is time the Islamic world in the first place and the international community too took serious action to contain Israel. The Zionist regime is an occupationist, expansionist entity. It must be contained, else the entire world will be in danger.
