Israel has never had a better friend than President Donald Trump.  Now may be the time to call upon that friendship to eliminate what may well be the biggest threat to Israel, and the world—before it is too late.

On September 30, Iran’s Major General Hussein Salami, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), announced Iran has achieved the capability to destroy Israel:

“This sinister regime must be wiped off the map and this is no longer a dream.  It is an achievable goal.  We have managed to obtain the capacity to destroy the imposter Zionist regime.”

Iran and the IRGC are the most likely perpetrators of the next Holocaust.

Iran is the world’s leading sponsor of international terrorism while the IRGC is itself a terrorist organization, categorized as such by the U.S. State Department on April 8, 2019.  On that date President Trump issued a White House statement:

“This unprecedented step, led by the Department of State, recognizes the reality that Iran is not only a State Sponsor of Terrorism, but that the IRGC actively participates in, finances, and promotes terrorism as a tool of statecraft.  The IRGC is the Iranian government’s primary means of directing and implementing its global terrorist campaign.”

Therefore, Major General Hussein Salami, as chief of the IRGC, leads the world’s most powerful terrorist organization.  The IRGC is the only terrorist organization in the world with an army, navy, air force, strategic missile force, a ballistic missile program, including an ICBM program masquerading as the Iranian Space Agency, which is run by the IRGC. 

The terrorist IRGC is almost certainly in charge of Iran’s clandestine nuclear weapons program.     

Is it possible that General Salami’s announcement that Iran has “achieved the capability to destroy the imposter Zionist regime” foreshadows Iran coming out of the nuclear closet, admitting they have nuclear weapons?


The terrorist IRGC is almost certainly in charge of Iran’s clandestine nuclear weapons program.     
Washington officialdom foolishly trusts the, often wrong, U.S. intelligence community that Iran does not yet have the bomb.  U.S. intelligence estimates “Iran Could Build A Nuclear Weapon In 1 Year” as expressed in a recent headline by The National Interest (September 30, 2019). 

While the Arms Control Association’s Kelsey Davenport thinks Iran being 12 months away from nuclear weapons is “not an immediate risk”—Israel and anyone with common sense should disagree that being merely one year away from the terrorist IRGC’s Islamic Bomb is too close for comfort.     

Moreover, after the U.S. intelligence community’s spectacular intelligence failures underestimating North Korea’s missile and nuclear weapon programs, how can their estimates about the even more secretive Iranian nuclear weapons program be trusted?

Indeed, some very senior and highly respected U.S., UN, and Israeli national security experts think Iran already has nuclear weapons.  See for example the article “We assess…Iran already has nuclear weapons” (Mackenzie Institute: September 25, 2019).

Alternatively, General Salami’s announcement that Iran now has the capability to destroy Israel may refer to development of a revolutionary new way of warfare employing drones, cyber-attacks, sabotage, and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weaponry to destroy critical infrastructures vital to national survival, as described in Iranian military doctrine.

U.S. Admiral James Stavridis, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander, warns in a recent article that Iran’s “sophisticated strikes on key Saudi oil fields” demonstrates achievement of revolutionary new military capabilities comparable to strategic nuclear weapons (Time: September 26, 2019):

“For decades, nations have thought about the strategic triad as the integration of three systems to deliver nuclear weapons: land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles; long-range strategic bombers…and nuclear-powered ballistic-missile submarines…As this turbulent 21st century unfolds, a new sort of strategic triad is clearly emerging, recently illustrated by the sophisticated strikes on key Saudi oil fields in the Middle East, which knocked out 5% of the daily global oil supply with low-cost drones and likely used Google Earth for GPS coordinates.  This new strategic triad is composed of unmanned vehicles…offensive cyberstrikes and special forces.  All of these are relatively inexpensive…and can be ‘equalizers’ allowing an asymmetric advantage that a  nongreat power (or even a nonstate actor) can utilize.”    

Moreover:

“The ability of these systems to create profound strategic damage…is increasing.  Cyber can attack a nation’s electric grid, water delivery systems, financial markets, or medical and transportation networks…At present, nations are not particularly well positioned to defend against such systems.”

Iran could develop drones, like the U.S. Air Force CHAMP cruise missile, armed with non-nuclear EMP warheads for blacking-out electric grids and mass disruption of critical infrastructures.  How long could Israel, or any nation, survive without electricity, water, and communications?

Time is running out for the U.S. and Israel to stop the IRGC from delivering a nuclear or electronic nightmare somewhere, most likely against the U.S. “Great Satan” and “Little Satan” Israel.  If President Trump loses the next elections, he and likely the U.S. Senate will be replaced by a Democratic Party profoundly hostile to Israel and even the concept of a Jewish state.

Reportedly, “there were at least 177 protests held in Iran during the month of August.  These protests took place all over the country with an average of 6 per day.”

Iran is ripe for revolution. Are CIA and Mossad paying attention?
