PRESIDENT-ELECT AHMADINEJAD DEEPENS IRANIAN NUCLEAR THREAT

The election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, acting on the orders from Islamic leaders who call for Israel’s extermination, presents an even greater threat to the Jewish state. However, Menashe Amir, a leading Israeli expert on Iran, also says Tehran is threatening Europe & The U.S. as well as targets in the Middle East. The Iranians are determined to continue their drive to acquire nuclear weapons and will start resuming the enrichment of uranium for nuclear weapons, unless deterred by the European Union and the U.S. Moreover, although Iran already has developed a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to many parts of the region, it is also working on an intercontinental ballistic missile with a range of 10,000 kilometers (over 6,000 miles). Interviewed by David Essing, analyst Amir also foresees the new Iranian President stepping up aid to Hezbollah in south Lebanon and Hamas and particularly the Islamic Jihad in the Palestinian areas.

Hariri's list swept all 19 seats in the Lebanese capital while the rest of the country votes for the remainder of the 128 seats over the next three Sundays. Saad is the son of former Premier Rafik Hariri who was assassinated in February apparently by Syrian agents. Rafik Hariri opposed Syria's occupation of Lebanon and his murder sparked international pressure which forced Syria to end its 30 year domination of Lebanon. However, Israeli officials believe that Hezbollah, Iran's proxy forces in Lebanon, will not surrender its power easily. Meanwhile, the frontrunner in the Iranian election campaign turns out to be Ayatollah Rafsanjani who has spoken about destroying Israel with one nuclear bomb.
