Iran Threatens to Light Israel on Fire
Latest threat comes amid escalating proxy war between Tehran and Jewish state
Iran threatened on Sunday to light Israel on fire, marking the Islamic Republic’s latest threat to destroy the Jewish state amid an escalating proxy war between the countries.
An Iranian government-controlled Twitter account posted an image of Israel constructed of matches and included the warning, “Just try, and you will see.” The message, also written in Hebrew, is a warning to Israel that if it attempts any attack on Iran’s nuclear infrastructure, the hardline regime will start a war. The pack of matches included in the image states, “ballistic matchbook,” indicating that Iran will use its enormous stockpile of advanced long-range missiles to target sites across Israel.
The threat comes as Iran increases its nuclear work, including the enrichment of uranium—the critical component in an atomic weapon—to the highest levels in its history. Iran is just a stone’s throw away from creating highly enriched uranium, which could power a bomb carried by the rogue country’s advanced ballistic missiles.
While the Biden administration has been working for months to ink a revamped version of the 2015 nuclear accord, Israel continues to sound the alarm on Tehran’s nuclear work. Israeli government leaders oppose the negotiations and worry the Biden administration is allowing Tehran to boost its atomic weapons program as negotiations drag on as the year comes to a close. The United States has already signaled that it is willing to unwind sanctions on Iran—providing the country access to billions of dollars in cash assets—if the hardline regime agrees to some restrictions on its nuclear program.
Iran and Israel have been locked in an escalating proxy war as Biden continues to negotiate with Iran. Tehran uses its terrorist proxies, such as Hamas and Hezbollah in Lebanon, to attack Israeli positions with armed drones and other weapons. Israel has responded by striking back at these terror groups and conducting covert operations within Iran to sabotage its nuclear program.
A coalition of nearly 3,000 Israeli military leaders, intelligence officials, and security personnel warned earlier this week in a direct appeal to the Biden administration that diplomacy with Tehran “poses a significant threat to Israel’s security,” the Washington Free Beacon reported.
“Returning to this expired and flawed agreement would be a grave mistake,” the military leaders wrote. Iran’s only goal, they say, is to create a “nuclear umbrella under which Tehran can dominate the region.”
Republican lawmakers are also pleading with the Biden administration to drop negotiations and apply harsh sanctions on Iran to stop its nuclear advancements. This week, a group of Republican foreign policy leaders warned the Biden State Department that Iran is stepping up its terrorism enterprise as negotiations languish.
“Tehran and its militias in Iraq possess significant drone capabilities, capabilities that need to be addressed and countered regardless of the administration’s quest to return to talks and re-enter what we believe to be a flawed nuclear agreement with Tehran,” the GOP lawmakers write, according to a copy of the letter first reported by the Free Beacon.
Notes from the Editor
Either the Biden Administration is blind to the concerns of Israel, or they could care less and are willing to place Israel in a place where they feel they have to act to protect themselves.
I expected this from Obama, who showed no interest in Israel, other then trying to unseat their prime minister and attacking them any way he could. The only thing that stood between Obama and cutting off Israel were senators and house members on both sides of the Isle who were unwilling to tolerate this.
In the end, Israel will not act in the Biden Administrations’ best interest; they will do what any nation would do if they felt their existence was a threat. They will attack Iran to push back their threshold of nuclear armament.
As I watch the Biden Administrations and their push to put the same useless treaty there was under Obama, which gave Iran a path to nuclear arms in ten years, the question has to be asked, “Are they doing this on purpose, hoping Israel and Iran destroy each other in the end, thus getting rid of two headaches for the Left which is showing antisemitism more and more as time passes?”
Remember, this is the same party that has one member saying, “Some people did something” on 9/11; it’s amazing how this person could not figure out who these people were who all came from the Middle East or that they flew planes into the two towers on that fateful day. Maybe Ilhan Omar needs to take another look at the world map.
In the end, we have a party that is being taken over with people like Ilhan, Rashida, AOC, and others who have shown their total disdain for Israel and the Jewish people, directing the DNC in the direction they are now headed towards.
Biden is pushing Israel and Iran towards a confrontation; it seems the party backing him is happy with where this is headed.
