Following upon a report in a Kuwaiti newspaper, that US President Barack Obama threatened to shoot down IAF jets en route to Iran if Israel tried to attack the nuclear infrastructure there – a report later denied by the White House – Arutz Sheva's Mark Langfan stated on NewsmaxTV's Steve Malzberg show Monday: “You can’t believe anything the Obama Administration says on Iran or Israel.”
He reminded viewers of the chilling words uttered by Iranian President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani in an Al Quds Day speech on December 14, 2001:
“If one day, the Islamic World is also equipped with weapons like those that Israel possesses now, then the imperialists’ strategy will reach a standstill because the use of even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will destroy everything. However, it will only harm the Islamic world. It is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality.”
Langfan then proceeded to explain, with one of his trademark maps, that 3 million Israelis would likely be killed if Iran successfully drops one 15-kiloton “Hiroshima-size” nuclear bomb anywhere near Tel-Aviv.
