Iran threatens Israel with ‘inferno,’ vows to improve missile accuracy

January 29, 2019 — The Times of Israel reports: “Iranian officials continued their anti-Israel rhetoric on Tuesday, threatening to improve the accuracy of their country’s missiles and warning that terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah were prepared to unleash an ‘inferno’ on the Jewish state.

Speaking at a conference on space technology, the secretary of Iran’s National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, was quoted by the Tasnim news agency as saying that ‘it has been an absolute disgrace for the Zionists when an Israeli minister was proved to be a spy, when there are hundreds of kilometers of tunnels dug underneath their feet, and when the resistance forces in Gaza and Lebanon have missiles with pinpoint accuracy and are ready to respond to any foolish Israeli behavior with an inferno.’…

Shamkhani also said Tehran has the capabilities to extend its missile range, but won’t do so due to its ‘defensive doctrine.’

‘Iran has no scientific or operational restriction for increasing the range of its military missiles, but based on its defensive doctrine, it is continuously working on increasing the precision of the missiles and has no intention to increase their range,’ he said, according to the Reuters news agency…” (Israel will never be destroyed.  God has declared His love for Israel from its very beginning: “And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.  None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.  And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live… Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil” – Ezekiel 16:4 – 6; 9.  Deuteronomy 7:6-8 states: “For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.  The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:  But because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.”  Despite the rantings and ravings of the world: “…let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance” – Psalm 83:4, God has promised: “…I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off” – Isaiah 56:5.)

PM warns Iran: Attack Israel and ‘it will be the last anniversary you celebrate’

February 14, 2019 — The Times of Israel reports: “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday threatened the Iranian regime with destruction after an Iranian military leader warned that the Islamic Republic would raze major Israeli cities if the US attacked it.

‘I don’t ignore the threats from the Iranian regime, but I’m also not intimidated by them,’ Netanyahu said in a Hebrew-language video uploaded to social media.

‘If this regime makes the terrible mistake and tries to destroy Tel Aviv or Haifa, it won’t be successful, and it will be the last anniversary of their revolution they will ever celebrate.’

‘They should take that into account,’ he said…” (Iran’s goal is found in Psalm 83:4: “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.”  As I have emphatically stated before – it won’t happen.  God has promised: “…I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off” – Isaiah 56:5.)
