Iran Not a Threat to Israel
IRAN is the 18th largest country in the world by area with a population of 75 million. It is home to one of the world`s oldest civilizations and is of particular geopolitical importance owing to its location in three spheres of Asia. It holds an important position in the world economy as a result of its large reserves of both petroleum and natural gas.
It also boasts a President with the unfortunate habit of indulging in inflammatory invective against Israel and America, and, using this as an excuse, Israel is desperately trying to get the US to join it in attacking Iran and killing its people .
Iran, with no nuclear weapons, is a zero military threat against undeclared secret nuclear superpower Israel, which has refused to sign or abide by the NPT but which is in possession of hundreds of nuclear warheads that are held outside the inspection of the IAEA. More importantly, it possesses the most advanced delivery systems for WMD in the world including five ballistic, missile-firing, German submarines that lie in and around the deep waters of the Gulf waiting to attack, plus hundreds of US supplied F15/16 strike aircraft and helicopter gunships.
A nation with zero nuclear weapons does not attack another with a deadly arsenal of hundreds of WMD that could make it a radioactive wilderness in just 30 minutes.
Don`t be misled by the insidious propaganda from either Israel itself or the powerful Israel lobby in America. Check out the facts for yourself which are all in the public domain.
It is the IRANIAN people who are under existential threat, NOT the undeclared nuclear weapon state of Israel!
