Iran’s deputy interior minister, Muhammad Baqer Zolqadr, said Thursday that his country would attack Israel and American targets throughout the world if Teheran were attacked over its nuclear program, Israel Radio reported.
According to the official Iranian news agency, the official, who deals with defense issues, said that no American would be safe from Iran’s long-range missiles.
“We are prepared to fire tens of thousands of these missiles every day,” he said.
He added that the Shahab 3 missiles, which have a range of some 2,000 kilometers, could hit Israel, as well US Army bases in the Persian Gulf.
Meanwhile, Iran’s top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, expressed a more positive view of the situation, saying Thursday morning that Wednesday’s talks with EU Foreign Police Chief Javier Solana had brought them closer to “a united view” of how to break a deadlock over Teheran’s defiance of a UN Security Council demand to freeze uranium enrichment.
Larijani added that Iran was “aiming to reach out for a common paradigm.”
Yes, and here it is: the West surrenders to all Iran’s demands, and Iran has a free hand to pursue its genocidal goals. And everyone is happy. There’s the common paradigm they’re seeking.
