Iran ups the ante

FARS news reports that a senior Iranian official is threatening World War III if Iran is attacked:

Responding to a question about Iran's capability to target Dimona nuclear facility in the occupied Palestinian territories, Iranian Armed Forces Deputy Chief of Staff for Cultural Affairs and Defense Publicity Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri told Al Alam News Network that the center "is the most accessible center to Iran", and stressed that Iran enjoys the capability even to target areas farther the nuclear plant.

As regards a possible US or Israeli military aggression against Iran, Jazayeri underscored, "Our capabilities and our defensive tactics will definitely make the enemies, including the US and the Zionists, repent (their action)."

"The US or any other regime may initiate a war, but definitely they will not be the side who ends it," he underlined, and stated, "Iran can manage any military move."

Last night, a senior member of the Iranian Parliament's National Security Commission warned that Israel would find itself in war with Iran in Tel Aviv streets if it dared to attack the Islamic Republic.

"Israel is not in the size to launch a military strike on Iran, but if it takes such a foolish action, the Iranian militaries will fight with the Zionist soldiers in Tel Aviv streets and will force them out of the Palestinian soil," member of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Seyed Hossein Naqavi told FNA on Tuesday.

Naqavi also warned that in case Iran comes under a military attack, the battlefield won't be Iran, but "the entire Europe and the US".

"Iranian forces will fight with the enemies with maximum might and power all throughout the European and US soil, if Iran comes under attack," he reiterated.
And Iran's Supreme Leader says that Iran will attack even if it feels threatened:
Iran “will respond with full force” to any attack − or even any threat of military action − the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, told students at a Tehran military college Thursday.

“The enemies, especially America and its stooges and the Zionist regime (Israel), should know that it is not Iran’s custom to invade any country or nation. But it will respond with full force to any aggression or even threats in a way that will demolish the aggressors from within,” he said, according to a statement on his official website.
Another Iranian "expert" was quoted in PressTV:
He said Israel is more vulnerable in difficult times “because even if Israel fires 100 missiles at Iran it will not even displace a few Iranian families” but four ordinary Iranian missiles are enough to make one million Zionists flee.
