NEWSRAEL: Notice that on this "map" of Israel is not only many targets of Arab cities inside Israel, but the whole of the Gaza Strip. These sites contain Sunni Arabs... is this just a mistake, or does Shiite Iran see these Sunni targets as "collateral damage" - or even as enemy targets in their crazy Shiite dreams?
Iran on Sunday threatened to set Israel on fire, signaling the Islamic Republic's latest threat to destroy the Jewish state amid a growing proxy war between the two countries.
A Twitter account controlled by the Iranian government posted a picture of Israel made of matches and included the warning "Just try and see." The announcement, also written in Hebrew, is a warning to Israel that if it tries to attack Iran's nuclear infrastructure, the rigid Iranian regime will start a war. The package of matches included in the photo indicates, "a ballistic match pack," an indication that Iran will use its vast reservoir, of advanced long-range missiles, to attack sites throughout Israel.
The threat comes as Iran continues to step up its nuclear work, including enriching uranium - the key component of nuclear weapons - to the highest levels in its history. Iran is within touching distance of the creation of highly enriched uranium, which could detonate a bomb carried by the country's advanced ballistic missiles.
While Biden has been working for months to present a new version of the 2015 nuclear deal, Israel continues to warn of Tehran's nuclear activities. Israeli government ministers oppose the talks and fear that the Biden administration will allow Tehran to increase its nuclear weapons program as negotiations drag on as the year draws to a close.
The U.S. has already signaled that it is ready to lift sanctions on Iran - and provide the country with billions of dollars in assets and cash - if the Iranian regime agrees to certain restrictions on its nuclear program.
In negotiations, Iran and Israel have been locked in an intensifying proxy war. Tehran uses its terrorist affiliates, such as Hamas and Hezbollah in Lebanon, to attack Israeli positions with armed UAVs and other weapons.
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."
"Returning to this expired and defective agreement would be a grave mistake," the army commanders wrote. Iran's only goal, they say, is to create a "nuclear umbrella under which Tehran can control the region."
Republican lawmakers are also begging the Biden administration to stop negotiations and re-impose harsh sanctions on Iran to halt its nuclear progress. A group of Republican foreign policy leaders this week warned the Biden State Department that Iran is stepping up its terrorist activities while negotiations fade.
"Tehran and its militias in Iraq have significant skimmer capabilities, capabilities that need to be addressed and stopped regardless of the administration's desire to return to talks and re-enter what we believe is a flawed nuclear deal with Tehran," GOP lawmakers wrote, according to a copy of the letter first reported by Free Beacon.
