The Real Striking Thing About Iranian ‘Attack’ Map

You’ve probably read about it already. The “peaceful” Iranian government has used its state-affiliated newspaper to threaten Israel, publishing a map of the country riddled with markers as a reminder where they can strike us if they choose to do so.

The Tehran Times doesn’t need to remind the illegitimate regime of Israel of Iran’s defense capabilities. Yet, they need to remember something.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei responded to all Israeli threats in 2013, saying, “Sometimes the leaders of the Zionist regime even threaten us; they are threatening to strike militarily, but I think they know it, and if they do not know it, they must know that if they make a mistake, the Islamic Republic will destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa.”

Keep your hands off!

Looking at the map, something really stood out for me:

While they might try to avoid Arab and palestinian Arab cities, everything is so close in proximity that these strikes would most certainly wreak havoc on those the Iranians claim to be supporting.

For example, the pins are clearly meant to appear “around” Gaza and not inside. But I posit that any rockets landing there would cause substantial damage within Gaza (especially if, G-d forbid, they had a nuclear payload).

Other palestinian Arab controlled places like Nablus and Jenin look like they won’t escape unscathed either. Not to mention the fact that many Israeli Arabs live in the main Israeli cities – especially Haifa, which they mention specifically as one of the cities they can destroy.

In other words, Iran have shown they couldn’t care less about those whose cause they supposedly champion.

Which makes them run-of-the-mill Israel-haters.
