Iran wants to kill us (since 1979)

So many in the Israeli (and Western) media like to exaggerate the Iranian nuclear “threat”.

The Forward newspaper reminds us that this kind of myth-making has a long pedigree:

The senior Israeli official’s tone was dire. In only a few years, the Iranians would be ready to launch a nuclear bomb. He minced no words. “If Iran is not interrupted in this program by some foreign power, it will have the device in more or less five years.”

The year this apocalyptic prediction was made: 1995.

As we all know, Israel survived the year 2000. Iran did not get the bomb.
