From TOI:
Iran on Wednesday test-fired two ballistic missiles, which an Iranian news agency said had the phrase “Israel must be wiped out” written on them in Hebrew. An Iranian commander said the test was designed to demonstrate to Israel, whose destruction Iran seeks, that it is within Iranian missile range.

Phrases threatening Israel have been emblazoned on missiles fired before by Iran, but this test came after the country signed a nuclear deal with world powers, including America. Hard-liners in Iran’s military have fired rockets and missiles despite US objections since the deal, as well as shown underground missile bases on state television.
I couldn't find any images that showed the phrase written on the missiles, but this news is prominent in Iran's state media.

There were two other stories about these missile tests in Iranian media that were not picked up by Western wire services.

Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Brigadier General Hossein Salami said that Hezbollah possesses more than one hundred thousand missiles Iran has tens of times that number of missiles - over a million of them, of various sizes and types, ready to be launched at the "enemy" at any moment from any point in the country from underground silos.

He added that "we convey all our expertise and our operational, scientific and tactical and strategic achievements to our brothers in the Islamic world and the resistance front against the United States and Israel and their regional allies."

In addition, IRGC Brigadier General Amir Ali Haji Zadeh said Iranian missiles are available "to the peoples of Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and all the oppressed of the world," saying that the missiles constitute a threat to anyone who wants to launch an attack on the oppressed Muslim peoples.

"The work of the evil Zionist regime is completely clear to us, and the range of over 2,000 km for our missiles allows us to face this entity from a distance," he added.

President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry assured critics that sanctions will remain in place against Iran's ballistic missile program even after the nuclear deal:

Obama said last July:
As I said yesterday, even with this deal, we will continue to have profound differences with Iran: its support of terrorism, its use of proxies to destabilize parts of the Middle East. Therefore, the multilateral arms embargo on Iran will remain in place for an additional five years, and restrictions on ballistic missile technology will remain for eight years.

In addition, the United States will maintain our own sanctions related to Iran's support for terrorism, its ballistic missile program, its human rights violations, and we'll continue our unprecedented security cooperation with Israel and continue to deepen our partnerships with the Gulf states.
Kerry was more specific on Face the Nation a few days later:
Secretary Kerry, you're allowing as a part of this deal a terrorist nation to get both conventional arms and ballistic missiles. Why is that a good idea and why is that a part of this?

KERRY: Actually, we're not.

There is a limit on their ability to do so. Under the arms embargo, arms control, there will be limit of five years, and under the missile, in eight years, and the reason that we're only able to limit them to the five and eight, which is quite extraordinary that we got that, was that three of the nations negotiating thought they shouldn't have any and were ready to hold out to do that.

And we said under no circumstances. We have to have those. And they add on to additional mechanisms that we have to hold them accountable on arms and missiles. We have the missile control technology regime. We have other missile restraints on them. We also have other U.N. resolutions that prevent them from moving arms to the Houthi, prevents them from moving arms to the Shia, prevents them from -- to the Shia militia in Iraq, prevents them from moving arms to Hezbollah.

So, we have an ability way beyond, nothing to do with this agreement, to continue to enforce those issues.
How's that strategy working out?

Meanwhile, the amount of information about of Iran's nuclear program under the "unprecedented" inspections regime has been significantly reduced, according to reports. 

But don't worry - the world is a safer place with Iran developing missile technology unhindered, with the ability to hide its nuclear weapons program.


We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
