While Obama talks about an â€™outstretched handâ€™ to Iranâ€™s Ahmadinejad, in the name of his promised â€œtransparency,â€ he finally discloses information he had months ago. At the same time that we learn about another uranium enrichment facility buried near Qom, the Iranians are busy with in-your-face short and long range missile firings, capable of reaching Israel, Europe and American military bases.
Read the enclosed article from Arutz Sheva and then call your Congressional representatives â€“ the Capitol switchboard number is: 202-224-3121 â€“ and scream about this Obamanation. Keep AFSI informed about whatever action you take.
1. Iran Tests Advanced Missiles, Threatens Israel
by Maayana Miskin
Iran fired some of its most powerful missiles on Monday as the Revolutionary Guard concluded two days of war games. Among the missiles tested, according to Iranian state media, were the Shahab-3 and Sajjil.
Both missiles have a range of more than 1,000 miles, and are capable of hitting Israel, Europe, and United States military bases.
On Sunday, the Revolutionary Guard fired a number of short-range missiles. Military leaders said they had also tested a multiple missile launcher for the first time, and had successfully fired two missiles at once.
The announcement of the two-day war games, which began Sunday, was made at the same time as Iranian leaders admitted the existence of a covert uranium enrichment site. â€œAllah willing, this plant will be put into operation soon, and will blind the eyes of the enemies,â€ the Supreme Leader’s Office said in an official announcement.
Iranian officials said the exercises were unconnected to the discovery of the site, and had been planned for some time. Government-run media quoted military leaders as saying the exercises would serve as a message for â€œarrogant countries which intend to intimidate.â€
On Monday, Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi appeared on state television to threaten Israel with destruction in case of an Israeli strike on Iran. â€œIf this [stri happens… its ultimate result would be that it expedites the Zionist regime’s last breath,â€ he said.
Vahidi claimed that Israel is â€œon a slope of destruction,â€ and that its â€œlifespan is today coming to an end,â€ whether or not it attempts to strike Iranian nuclear sites.
