Israel News Agency
Jerusalem ----- February 19, 2008 ....... As the Israel Foreign
Ministry protests to the UN repeated statements by Iran to "wipe
Israel off the map" security analysts in Israel say that
the Jewish democratic nation is more than ready for any aggression
by Iran, Hezbollah and Syria.
was born from the ashes of the Holocaust," said an Israel
security analyst. "As such, Israel, the Jewish people and
every democratic nation would not allow a second Holocaust to
take place. Israel is more than prepared to meet any challenge
by the new racist Nazi regime in Iran. We know every step they
take, we know the color of the underwear that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
and Hassan Nasrallah wear. If they think that the US can shoot
down a satellite with laser pin point accuracy, they have not
seen the weapons that Israel would and could use to defend herself
- and I am not talking about nuclear or biological."
Revolutionary Guards yesterday stated that the Hezbollah in
Lebanon would destroy Israel.
the near future, we will witness the destruction of Israel,
the aggressor, this cancerous microbe Israel, at the able hands
of the soldiers of the community of Hezbollah," the ideological
force's commander, Mohammad Ali Jafari, was quoted by the Iran
Fars news agency.
Fars News Agency reported that Jafari's prediction appears in
a letter he wrote to Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Lebanese
terrorist group Hizbullah. Jafari was offering condolences to
Nasrallah in the wake of last week's death of Hizbullah mastermind
and arch-terrorist Imad Mughinyeh.
the martyrdom of this sincere fighter (Mughniyeh) will strengthen
the determination of all revolutionary and combatant Muslims,
particularly his comrades, in confrontation with the Zionist
regime," Ali Jafari was quoted.

missile nuclear attack from Iran, but now every citizen
of Europe has become a target," a French security analyst

for its US missile defense shield program in Europe."
was killed in a car bombing in Damascus, Syria last week. Israel
has been credited with the elimination of the wanted terrorist,
who was responsible for several major international terrorist
attacks on Israel, American and Jewish targets. No confirmation
has been forthcoming from Jerusalem. US President George Bush
commented only that "the world is a better place"
without Mughniyeh in it.
escalating rhetoric from Hezbollah in the aftermath of the assassination
of terrorist mastermind Imad Mugniyah is "a profoundly
troubling development" that should be taken seriously,
the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said in a statement.
anti-Israel rhetoric figured prominently in the fiery speeches
during today's mass funeral in southern Beirut, with Hezbollah
leader Hassan Nasrallah blaming Israel for the death of Mugniyah
and calling for "open war" against Israel and "the
Zionists." Nasrallah and other leaders said the terrorist
organization was prepared to retaliate "anywhere"
hateful rhetoric is a profoundly troubling development, for
we know the past record of Hezbollah followers and it is not
unreasonable that they or others could take this as a call to
action," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.
"In this interconnected world it is not just the tens of
thousands of Hezbollah supporters in Lebanon who imbibed this
vitriolic hatred, but a potential audience of millions across
the Middle East and around the world.
threats should be taken seriously as incitement to violence.
We know what Hezbollah is and what they are capable of doing.
The international community must not remain silent in the face
of these open threats against a sovereign nation and its citizens
and supporters," added Mr. Foxman.

want war, then they shall have it. "Zionists, if you want
an open war, then let it be an open war anywhere."

and Israel targets around the world, including the devastating
1983 bombings of the American embassy and Marine barracks in
Beirut, and the 1992 and 1994 bombings of the Israeli embassy
and a Jewish center in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
the assassination, Israel raised alert levels at its embassies
around the world, with the Israel Defense Forces increasing
security along the country's northern border and around key
installations. In the US, the FBI and the Department of Homeland
Security advised state and local law enforcement authorities
to be on alert for potential attacks by Hizbullah on Jewish
communities or other targets within the US.
response to Jafari's threatening letter, Israel's United Nations
Ambassador Danny Gillerman filed a formal complaint with the
UN Security Council on Monday evening. He called on the UNSC
chairman to publicly condemn Iran for Jafari's statements, which
he characterized as anti-Semitism and racism of the "most
has never been more prepared for a conclusive war against Iran,
Syria and Iran Hezbollah puppets," said the Israel security
analyst."As always, Israel will take whatever measures
she can to avoid a war. But if the perverted Muslim leadership
of Iran continues to insist on murdering innocent Israel and
Iran citizens, if the soldiers of Iran really want to meet their
72 virgins, Israel is more than ready to provide a one way ticket."
security sources state that advanced Patriot missiles have been
deployed throughout Israel's northern border. The officials
said that batteries were placed on standby Sunday for the first
time since Israel's month-long war with Hezbollah in the summer
of 2006, when the Lebanese terrorists fired nearly 4,000 rockets
into northern Israel. The IDF would not comment on possible
ground and space laser warfare weapons that they might have
on standby. These advanced and sophisticated weapons, with pinpoint
accuracy, could destroy a car, an underground bunker or a city
in Iran or Syria.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Sunday he anticipated Hezbollah
would try to retaliate for the assassination, possibly with
help from Syria and Iran, and added that Israel was more than
prepared on all fronts for an attack.
