Iran Unveils Two Nuclear-Capable Ballistic Missiles After Israel Attack On Syria

Following Israel's dramatic airstrikes on Syria on Saturday, seen by many as a "dramatic escalation" in regional tensions, and the most direct threat against Tehran in years, over the weekend Iran unveiled a series of new homemade nuclear-capable ballistic missiles during military parades, in a move that experts said was a bid to bolster the hardline ruling regime while cautioning Israel against any further escalation.

Describing the missile, Iran's state-run Fars  news agency described one of the rockets, the Ghadr , as a 2000km-range, liquid-fuel and ballistic missile which can reach territories as far as Israel.

The missile can carry different types of ‘Blast’ and ‘MRV’ (Multiple Reentry Vehicle) payloads to destroy a range of targets.

Meanwhile, the new version of the Qadr H ballistic missile "can be launched from mobile platforms or silos in different positions and can escape missile defense shields due to their radar-evading capability."

As the Washington Free Beacon adds,  Iranian military leaders rolled out the latest ballistic missile technology, which includes a nuclear-capable medium-range missile that appears to share similarities with North Korean technology on the heels of an encounter between what Israel claimed was an Iranian drone and Israeli forces.

The missiles are capable of reaching Israel even when fired from Iranian territory, raising concerns about an impending conflict between Tehran and the Jewish state that could further inflame the region.

While it was meant to deter further aggression by Israel, the demonstration of nuclear force by Iran could further inflame tensions between the two countries. Concerns that this nuclear-capable technology could be shared by Iran with its terrorist proxies are fueling longstanding concerns among the Israelis that an attack is imminent.

Iran's ruling regime continues to invest millions of dollars it received as part of the landmark nuclear deal with the United States on its military technology, specifically ballistic missiles, which are subject to a ban under international statutes, even as Iranian dissidents continue to protest over the country's ailing economy. According to conservative estimates, the Iranian regime has spent at least $16 billion in recent years on its military buildup and rogue operations in Syria, as well as other countries.

Some more details on the newly unveiled weapons: the two new nuclear-capable missiles unveiled over the weekend by Iran include the Ghadr missile, a medium-range rocket that was recently modified and upgraded by the Islamic Republic.

"The Ghadr can strike Israel when fired from Iranian territory, and in March 2016, was flight-tested while bearing genocidal slogans against the state of Israel," according to Ben Taleblu, who has researched Iranian missile procurement.

Iranian military leaders also rolled out a rocket called the Fajr-5, which is becoming a new favorite of Iranian-backed terror proxy groups operating against Israel.

"The Fajr-5 is an Iranian rocket that has been proliferated to anti-Israel groups like Hamas and Hezbollah. It can travel up to 75 km, and is therefore a long-range artillery rocket. It uses solid fuel for propulsion," Ben Taleblu explained. "Both the Qadr missile and Fajr rocket represents Iran's commitment to developing stand-off weaponry that it uses for purposes of deterrence and coercion."

As the Free Beacon notes, the new weaponry "could fuel ongoing efforts by Congress to crackdown on Iran's continued proliferation of ballistic missile technology, a large part of which has been incubated by the North Korean regime, which continues to have a technology-sharing agreement with Tehran."

Iran already has the region's largest arsenal of ballistic missiles and is seeking to continue building this technology.

There are no ancient Jewish cities in Israel,...
but there are lots of ancient Greek cities.

What is weird is this; that 2000 years ago, it seems that there were no people even resembling Jews, in Israel.

It turns out that there is not a single ancient Jewish city in what is now called Israel. There is not a single ancient city where Hebrew characters are used on the statues and buildings. There is not a single ancient city where the buildings are in the ancient Jewish architectural style. In fact, there is not even a category of "ancient Jewish architectural style".

Of course, the Hebrew characters that are desired, are those of the Dead Sea scrolls (supposedly from 2000 years ago), which are essentially the modern Hebrew characters without points.

If you check out all the ancient cities in Israel from 2000 years ago, they are all Greek, and their ruins are still there for you to visit. Their inscriptions are in the Greek script and the buildings are in the ancient Greek architectural styles.

Here is a list of some of the known ancient Greek cities in (and near) Israel; Ecdippa, Seleucia, Ptolemais, Taricheia Arbela, Asochis, Sepphoris, Hippos, Dion, Sycaminum, Bucolon Polis, Itabyrium, Gadara, Abila, Dora, Comus, Gephrus, Crocodilion Polis, Caesarea, Straton's Tower, Narbata, Scythopolis, Pella, Samaria, Amathus, Ragaba, Gerasa, Apollonia, Sicima, Pegae, Joppa, Arimathea, Jamnia, Port of Jamnia, Lydda, Modiin, Aphaerema, Philadelphia, Birtha, Gazara, Beth Horon, Dok, Jericho, Samaga, Esbus, Medaba, Ladder of Tyre, Azotus, Port of Azotus, Accaron, Jerusalem, Ascalon, Anthedon, Gaza, Marissa, Beth Zur, Hebron, Adora, Engeddi.

The ancient Jewish cities in Israel are,....... well there aren't any. Not even one.

Here's an interesting example of a first century BC Greek inscription (i.e., in Greek letters) from Jerusalem's Temple Mount forbidding the entry of strangers to the Temple precinct.

The pictured stone was found in 1935. It was actually the second such warning-stone to be found, the first being discovered by Charles Simon Clermont-Ganneau in 1871. It was deemed so dangerous to the "Jews inhabited Israel 2000 years ago" theory, that it completely disappeared for 13 years before resurfacing in Istanbul, where, it was correctly calculated, it would not attract much attention.


The first Jerusalem Temple Mount warning-stone, now found in the Archaeology Museum, Istanbul, is pictured below:

It says (in Greek): "No stranger is to enter within the balustrade round the temple and enclosure. Whoever is caught will be responsible to himself for his death, which will ensue."

Slack Jack's CHALLENGE:

Name ONE ancient city (that existed in what is now called Israel) where the building inscriptions are all in Hebrew, and the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (whatever that may be).

Then give a summary of "the ancient Hebrew architectural style" (you will have to make this up as it does not yet exist).

Then give links to photos of the ancient building inscriptions which show that they are written in Hebrew.

Then show that the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (that you have just invented).

The Dead Sea scrolls Hoax.

The Dead Sea scrolls are a mixture of old documents that were hidden in a number of caves to be miraculously found and used to support the establishment of Israel, a country intended for Jews only.

The main document "finds" were in 1946 and 1947 in caves near the tiny ancient settlement of Qumran.

Israel was created in 1948.

The Dead Sea scrolls are the only really old (well supposedly really old) documents, in the Hebrew characters, that have ever been found. No other really old documents in the Hebrew characters have ever been found.

All other documents in Hebrew characters date from later than 800 AD.

Previous to the "finds", critics had pointed out the late date of all documents in Hebrew characters, and deduced that the Hebrew Old Testament must have been translated from the Greek Old Testament and not the other way round.

Then, low and behold,... a very timely miracle occurs.

The Dead Sea scrolls are "found" and dated to hundreds of years earlier than the oldest previously known documents in Hebrew characters.

Then, it is widely claimed that all the scrolls were produced and hidden in the Qumran caves before 70 AD (the supposed time of the mythical sack of Jerusalem by the Romans).

The critics are not given access to the scrolls nor even photographs of the text, lest they spoil the party.

In fact, for decades, only seven scholars are given access to the scrolls.

This goes on till certain critics are dead and the scrolls have been purged of all anachronisms (like Arabic numerals).

Then, in 1991, only 45 years after their "discovery", the Huntington Library, in San Marino, California, without consent, makes facsimile copies of the scrolls available to all.

So that, in brief, is the Dead Sea scrolls Hoax.

More, however, can be deduced....

One can even guess where the Dead Sea documents came from.

It turns out that some of the Dead Sea documents, for example, the "Damascus Document," are nearly identical to documents from the Genizah collection of the Ben Ezra Synagogue in Cairo, Egypt. So, it is likely that many of the Dead Sea scrolls had their source there.

Worldwide, there are ten manuscripts of the "Damascus Document" from the Dead Sea scrolls and two from the Cairo Genizah. This strange distribution is a result of the fraud. The "Damascus Document" was first published in 1910 by Solomon Schechter in "Fragments of a Zadokite Work."

The Ben Ezra Synagogue was established around 900 AD.

Now, the Arabs have ruled Egypt since they defeated the Greek armies around 635 AD.

Now, the synagogue (and its Jews) existed happily, undisturbed, in Cairo, in the midst of the Islamic world.

So, maybe the original Jews were a group of Arabs.

This would explain why Hebrew and Arabic are nearly identical languages.

This would explain why the Hebrew and Islamic religious traditions are very similar.

And, it would also explain why Jews turned up in Spain with the Arabs (Moors).

Another couple of points:

It should also be noted that a few Jewish scholars (in particular, Solomon Zeitlin) have long insisted that the Dead Sea scrolls were a Medieval production. [Zeitlin was a well-known Talmudic scholar and would not claim this unless convinced it was true.]

Internal evidence from the scrolls themselves indicates a Medieval production. See, here.

And, the fact that many scrolls are written on vellum (90% of them) proves these are indeed a Medieval production.

It is estimated that 20 people occupied the site of Qumran (estimated by the number of inhabitants for whom there was room in the buildings). Now these 20 people were not just ordinary people, they read and wrote Greek, Phoenician, Aramaic, Nabataean, and Hebrew documents, like natives, and managed to write learned works on numerous religious topics (about 900 manuscripts were "recovered"; about six hundred separate works), while gathering enough water, and raising enough food, for their survival, in a desert.

Some have tried to claim that as many as 200 lived at Qumran, but most have considered that number ridiculously high.

Anyway, I think it is clear that the Dead Sea scrolls are a bunch of old documents that have been thrown together and sold to a gullible world.

Another dull piece of writing with a copypaste. Thanks, we were waiting for it eagerly.

And to take the lame thread-jacking back on topic, is The Washington Free Beacon in some sort of ridiculous headline contest? WTF is nuclear-capable supposed to mean? Here is the essence of shit in their heads. Twin Cessna fell in the cemetery, the rescuers have found 27 bodies...

Guess what? My car is flight-capable. All it needs is an integrated anti-gravity drive. Oh, fuck, I guess I don't have one of those, and I'm not making one, so it looks like I'm stuck sharing the road with idiots.

Always wondered, do they really believe themselves in what they write?

Dude its science. Nuclear warheads, like just about anything, weigh a certain amount depending on the warhead aka payload. Ballistic missiles vary based upon distance and payload capabilities. If a particular ballistic missile can carry a payload equivalent to the weight of a nuclear warhead the ballistic missile is nuclear capable. There, you had your 7th grade physics lesson for the year.

Some folk may grumble about Israel from the perspective of 'nice and decent folk who want to right the wrongs of the world'.  

But we should also remember that it is largely because of the plug in the stream of emigrants from Arabia represented by Israel that there are not 50 million Arabs squatting in shitheaps and no go zones north of the Mediterranean, and Europe from Damascus to Dublin is not speaking Arabic, obeying Sharia and watching its pretty womenfolk enslaved for the sex trade to feed the harems of the House of Saud with fresh meat while men grovel and pay the jizra or get their heads cut off.

So we need to balance the anti-Semitic rhetoric with a sense of gratitude to Israel for holding back the advance of jihad-through-immigration which would otherwise engulf all of Europe in just a few quick years.   The more we can encourage infighting within Islam the less puff they have for external adventures which could affect the remaining civilised world!

In a way, yes.  The Washington Free Beacon is a ((neo-con)) Jew-supremacist disinformation site, much like MEMRI.

Normally ZH wouldn't quote neo-cons but the Tylers for some reason have a profound hatred of Iran so they'll go the extra mile to find hate- and war-mongering anti-Iranian propaganda.

Sorry BobEore, I was simply stating facts of the matter, horrible tho they are.  When Islam invaded Spain not long ago, the Caliph ordered up 2000 blonde virgins as the first export from the land of the Moors.  That order was filled.  It is the way of the beast.  Only by confronting such horrors can we move to act.  Carry on.

It's a cut&paste troll, I guess.

This is the stupidest article ever on ZH! Bigtime Bullshit!

What on earth makes a missile "nuclear capable"? All missiles are inherently "nuclear capable".

This like as if I were to accuse the neighbor's kid of collecting "window capable rocks". Try that some time. Call the cops and see what they do.

Jack off jack... n doncha come back.

Your precis is as phony as a pack o rebbes an a talmudic skroll!

This 'ancient land o Srael' is GREEK thing is not suitable for multiple thread jacks.

It's extremely simple. The 'sons of Dan' were the colonists who landed on the "greek isles"... before there were any "Greeks" to speak -of- and intermarried with the local Pelasgians to produce that people which would become "Hellenes" in time... and who

received their alphabet from Phoenician and Phrygian sources... NOT the other way around! Take away>  GREEKS N JEWS in bed together from the get go...

just like the talmudists in Srael and the fake mullah/rebbes in "Iran" are now.

REAL HISTORY ... comin real soon.

Quite correct. The real Jews were Arabs and they came from Yemen and Hijaz (Western Saudi Arabia). The Jews were not in Egypt and the Exodus did not take place from Egypt.

Recently, they found an Egyptian brewery under the centre of Tel Aviv. Israeli archaeologists came out with some pathetic pretend-explanation of the Jews having been under the Egyptians and in Palestine at that time. In reality, the Egyptians later abandoned Palestine due to drought and the place was so dry that it could not support any sizable population.

See for yourselves:

Potsherds used for producing beer discovered at site believed to be northernmost Egyptian settlement in Early Bronze Age, 5,000 years ago…

Indeed. But stupid people(and I include here all hasbara trolls) have a very small brain,not fit for too many ideas. So ,they hold tight on very few ideas,even if they were proven false time and again.They think that repetition will make the claims real.

And if this doesn't work,back to ad hominem and the proven anti semitism,racism,fascism,blah,blah,blah...

Good for Iran and North Korea, who is to say they are not allowed ballistic missiles when Israel and USA are armed to the teeth with them.  Let us not forget that the USA has invaded several countries recently and overthrown govts in South and Central America.

I wonder come Finland no have Hasbara equivalent? 

Why Malaysia ain't got no Hasbara troopies to prop up their side of the story?

You don't even see Macedonia running around the on internet trying to make people feel guilty and engaging in the same old tired shaming tactics.

I don't recall ever reading about Argentina paying people to post pro-Argentina (and anti-Britain) messages every time an article about the Falkland Islands pops up.

So why does evil Israel feel the need to do it?  Only country in the world that spreads propaganda on internet forums like that.

The real question is why is IS...RA...EL allowed to have nuclear missiles and Iran not allowed to have regular ones? Iran MIGHT transform those missiles to carry nuclear ones?

Well,the zionist entity ALREADY HAS nuclear ones(see Mordechai Vanunu and Dimona and one of the reasons JKF was killed as he opposed Dimona). Why would be the zionist entity ENTITLED to have them and others in the ME not? Disruption of the balance of power? HAHA!

CIA- Giving nuke capabilities and rocket capabilities to North Korea & Iran. Doom porn, technology is old. Fear makes for humble servants in need of government protection.


Who holds all of the new oil/gas rights titles in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Lybia ect.


USA Corporations like: CONACO  Phillips.....    So much for wars for other countries. More Oil wars....

What is Joe Bidens son doing with the Ukrainian gas company, Burisma Holdings? Weird....  What US companies are now listing links to Bursima....


Oh ya, its for the JEWS or something. Don't tell US/UK oil companies that are getting all of the oil rights. Theft by US Government for its corporations that run it! Been happening for a hundred years or more!
