On video again: Iran announces burning desire to ‘raze’ Israel

This story was originally published by the WND News Center.

Iran’s destabilizing influence in the Middle East, and the rest of the world, has once again surfaced, this time with its video threats to “raze Tel Aviv” and destroy Dimona, which is thought to hold Israel’s nuclear weapons arsenal.

It is the Times of Israel reported on a video released by the Middle East Media Research Institute:

Iran’s threat to bomb Israel “off the map” has been a constant for many years already, which is why the Trump administration pulled the U.S. out of an agreement with Iran created by the Barack Obama administration that essentially set up a time frame for the rogue regime to obtain nuclear weapons.

Biden has tried, unsuccessfully, to restart that agreement and experts differ on how close the Islamic regime is to getting those weapons.

In the video, Iran’s state broadcaster airs its scenario that presumes Israeli jets to bomb Iran’s nuclear site, Natanz.

The threat is that the home base for the jets would be destroyed before they would be able to return, and rockets would “raze Tel Aviv.”

The video appeared on Iran’s state-controlled IRIB TV2 just days ago.

The report explained, “Israel has vowed to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and has repeatedly said it has the right to act in striking Iranian facilities to prevent what it sees as an existential threat.”

The video reveals narrator Younes Shadlou citing “exercises” involving Israel and the U.S.

“Let’s assume that Israeli jets manage to reach the Natanz nuclear site in one piece,” he said. “Even if they manage to leave Iran’s sky safely,” it would take an hour to return to base.

“The question is whether there would be any base for them to land at,” he claimed.

The video includes multiple segments of footage showing rockets being launched.

Shadlou said one target would be Dimona, in Israel.

Though Israel never has confirmed it has nuclear weapons, experts believe it does.

WND reported weeks ago that one of the Israel generals who wrote an open letter to Joe Biden, urging him to flee from a nuclear deal with Iran, said the only reason for reviving it would be to protect Obama’s legacy.

“The only reasonable explanation I have is that it has to do with Obama’s legacy,” Brigadier General (res) Amir Avivi said a day after the letter was published. “This was the No. 1 thing that Obama was trying to push in his presidency. They want to keep this legacy even if it is, in many ways, very problematic.”

The original letter was signed by 5,000 senior officers from across Israeli defense establishments.

The video includes the specific threat from Ayatollah Ali Khamenei that if Israelis’ “make even the slightest mistake,” Tel Aviv and Haifa will be razed.

Military experts in Israel have lately been warning that a deterrent attack on Iran’s weaponry may be needed because of the threat from Iran’s nuclear capabilities.
