BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz threatened a military operation against Iran if they crossed a “red line” in the region.

Katz told the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera Saturday on the sidelines of the Mediterranean Dialogues (MED) conference in Rome.that a potential Israeli attack on Iran was “an option.”

“If Iran crosses the red line, it will discover a unified front between Saudi Arabia, UAE and the United States, which will launch hundreds of Tomahawk missiles at Tehran,” he said.

By the red line, Katz meant, “We will not allow Iran to acquire or stockpile nuclear weapons. If that is the last option – we will act militarily.”

Iran has repeatedly enunciated its nuclear program as exclusively civilian, subject to the most intensive UN supervision ever.

Israel has also warned Iran against further developing their nuclear program, vowing to prevent the Islamic Republic from attaining these weapons of mass destruction.

Nvertheless, Israel leads the fight against the Iran-led Axis of Pestilence : the quarter of IRGC in Syria comes back home in body bags, thanks to IDF… At this rate, the Jewish martyrs who perished during Hezbully, Hamas, PIJ or IRGC cowardish terrorist attacks either in Israel or at worldwide level, soon will be fully avenged… Although it won’t be complete until the sponsors of these terror gangs won’t be recycled as fertiliser… Nevertheless, Israel should really stop with its purely defensive policy and follow their Talmud when to comes to the critters with lice in their beards in Tehran… Read more »

Israel will not fare well in a traditional war against Iran. They are much better off killing Iranians in Syria. A direct attack on Iran will bring back thousands upon thousands of rockets right back into Israel, which is a tiny nation with a lot of vulnerabilities. This would be terrible for the region.

Israel is panicking. Nothing they do affects Iran. That’s why they keep coming out with these absurd statements. The other day, one of the dumb, lying Israelis said that Iran faces another Vietnam in Syria, seeming to forget that Iran has already been through a war worse than Vietnam (Iran-Iraq War) and letting everyone know that he sees Iran’s power similar to that of the United States without even realizing it.
