Iran threatens Israel: “Destruction in 11 days”

by TheTotalCollapse.com on May 3, 2009

 

German NTV reports on the latest developments in the Iran-Israel tensions: “Destruction in 11 days”. According to NTV, “Iran has made its first ever announcement of a concrete objective of the destruction of Israel”.

The Israeli TV has aired an interview with the iranian leader Attalah Salihi. The leader announced the “destruction of Israel in 11 days”.

What appears to be unclear from the report is how or why such developments would occur in 11 days? Are we witnessing empty threats or revelations of strategic preparations of war? Or is it Israeli propaganda to justify a strike on Iran?

Time will tell…

Update: We have received many emails asking us who Salihi is. From Wikipedia: “Major General Ataollah Salehi is the current commander-in-chief of the Iranian Army since 2005. He has graduated before the Islamic Revolution from Iranian Army’s military academy in 1971 with the rank of Artillery Second Lieutenant of Army’s Ground Forces. He has the direct operational command authority over the commanders of Iranian Army’s Ground Forces, Air Force and Navy.”

Yep, Israel is always putting words into the mouths of Iranian officials to support Israeli objectives.

Not that I wouldn’t mind seeing the Israelis very very successful, but what could be gained by Salehi ‘telegraphing’ Iranian intentions
so obviously. Mayhaps they want to see what the Israelis are doing with ‘their’ new eye in the sky? Mayhaps to provoke Israel into
acting ahead of Bibis visit to Washington? Or just more psyops?
Could they really be that arrogant and stupid? Well yes and no:)

MEMRI says the General said “wipe Israel out of existence within 11 days”. That was my take from the German text as well.
That’s a translation problem from German into English you didn’t get. Were you using auto translation?

Actually MEMRI says:

“The truth is that Israel does not have the courage to attack us. If we are subjected to any attack by Israel, I do not think we will need more than 11 days to wipe Israel out of existence.”

The German article failed to mention the context of the comments.

That’s not the author’s fault, he didn’t have the MEMRI item, just wrote what he saw on TV.
The problem for your understanding is: “in” (German) can mean “in” but also “within” in English. In this case it was “within” but the translation here didn’t get that. Okay, the context would have given the clue in the translation, but the German writer wouldn’t know you translate, wouldn’t he?

Now that the statement is in context in response to a ..what if you are attacked by..style of question, it looks like their gamers are pretty sure of 11 days. However on about day 8 or 9 (or mayhaps sooner) comes the Samson Doctrine and Iran and greater persia will be but distant memories for about 50 more generations. The legends of course will grow around the campfires of the survivors, since Israel will not go quietly into that good night.

To Jon Brooks,

You seem to think that everything can be resolved by using nuclear weapons. You think it’s going to be like a Hollywood movie showing the Israeli Air Force bomber flying back home while a mushroom cloud slowly starts to dissipate many miles behind the plane, with some dramatic music playing, and a close up of the pilot’s face thinking to himself what a successful mission…the “threat was destroyed”. And then a fade out of the scene, THE END.

Well this isn’t Hollywood and no it’s not going to be that simple. I remember reading somewhere that there will be no more Hiroshimas and Nagasakis. In other words, unlike the nuclear bombing of those 2 Japanese cities where the US got off with impunity, this will not happen again should any nation decide to use such force. Consequences will follow.

So pray that Israel doesn’t attack Iran, and hope that the Israelis think over that “Samson doctrine” when they see that Iran is capable of an effective counterattack.
