米国とイランの戦闘が拡大したらイスラエルは余命30分?

米国がイランの経済妨害を強め、両者の応酬がさらに激化しています。ホワイトハウスが「(核の)取引が成立する前でさえ、イランがその条項に違反していたことは疑いようがない」と述べて失笑を買っています。
イスラエルとサウジ、UAEが親密度を強めています。UAEとサウジは、ペルシャ湾をはさんで戦闘行為が始まることを恐れています。イスラエルはイランと砲火を交える構えを見せていますが、イスラエルは全域がイランの弾道ミサイルの射程圏。イランの国会議員が米国とイランの戦闘が拡大したらイスラエルは余命30分と述べてイスラエルに改めてショックを与えました。

Tehran Warns US That American Bases Are ‘Within the Range' of Iranian Missiles
On Tuesday, Iran’s Minister of Cultural and Social Affairs Hossein Nejat warned that Iran could obliterate US aircraft carriers in the Gulf if the US attacks Iran, further increasing tensions between the two countries.

"American bases are within the range of our missiles ... Our missiles will destroy their aircraft carriers if they make a mistake," Nejat warned. "Americans are very well aware of the consequences of a military confrontation with Iran."

According to al-Masdar News, Nejat also added that war is not on “Trump’s agenda” and that the US president wants to “drag Tehran to negotiate through the maximum pressure.”

“Iran has put Israel’s security at risk and now it is troubling Saudi Arabia, America and Israel. Tehran is fighting the war at the enemy’s borders and not on its borders,” Nejat continued, the agency reported.

Earlier Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made similar remarks, warning Iran that it is within range of Israeli warplanes. The Israeli official's statement comes one week after Mojtaba Zolnour, the chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, indicated that if the US attacks Iran, “only half an hour will remain of Israel's lifespan,” Sputnik reported.

"Iran recently has been threatening Israel's destruction. It should remember that these planes can reach anywhere in the Middle East, including Iran, and certainly Syria,” Netanyahu said at an Israeli Air Force base Tuesday.

Tensions between the US and Iran have been high ever since the United States pulled out of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in May 2018, despite Iran's continued compliance with the agreement by not pursuing a nuclear weapons program, as attested to by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The US pullout prompted the deal's other signatories, including Russia, China and several European powers, to scramble to try and salvage it. Following the pullout, the US reimposed a series of sanctions that had been lifted against Iran under the terms of the JCPOA. Additionally, Washington has continued to introduce new sanctions against Tehran.

Netanyahu Warns Iran It is Within Range of Israeli Warplanes
This comes after Iranian MP Mojtaba Zolnour warned last week that if the US attacks Iran, “only half an hour will remain of Israel's lifespan”.

Referring to Tehran's threats to destroy Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned Iran that it is within range of Israeli warplanes.

"Iran recently has been threatening Israel's destruction. It should remember that these planes can reach anywhere in the Middle East, including Iran, and certainly Syria", Netanyahu said during his public remarks at an Israeli Air Force base on Tuesday.

“Our planes can reach any area in the Middle East, including both Iran and Syria”, the tweet reads.

The remarks come after Mojtaba Zolnour, the chairman of the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, warned in last week's interview with the Tehran-based Arabic language news TV network al-Alam that if the US attacks Iran, “only half an hour will remain of Israel's lifespan”.

Earlier, Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz told the Herzliya Conference that the Jewish state is bracing itself for its possible military involvement in the event of an escalation in the political standoff between Iran and the US.

He singled out “mistaken calculations by the [Iranian] regime” that he claimed may bring about a “military conflagration” in the Middle East region.

“We must be prepared for this, and thus the State of Israel continues to devote itself to building up its military might for the event that it will have to respond to escalation scenarios”, Katz pointed out.

This comes amid frozen relations between Israel and Iran, with the Jewish state repeatedly accusing Iran of establishing a permanent military presence in Syria.

The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) have been conducting airstrikes against what they have claimed were Iranian military targets in Syria, while Tehran argues that it has only been sending military advisers to Damascus to help it fight terrorism.

Iran, which denies Israel's right to exist, has also ramped up its stern rhetoric against Israel, promising to wipe it off the political map.

'Tactical' rapprochement: Top Israeli diplomat visits UAE for 1st time, talks 'common enemy' Iran
Yisrael Katz has visited the UAE for the very first time, discussing everyone’s favorite bogeyman - the “Iranian threat” - with an “unnamed official.” But is Tehran scary enough to cement ties between Israel and Gulf Arab states?

Katz, the Israeli minister of foreign affairs – and intelligence – visited Abu Dhabi over the weekend. It was the first time the Jewish state’s top diplomat set foot on UAE soil, albeit as part of a UN-led Climate Meeting.

The diplomat used the opportunity to meet an unnamed senior local official to discuss growing ties between the two countries, economic cooperation and the ever-trendy “Iranian threat.”

“I am excited to stand here in Abu Dhabi and to represent the interests of the State of Israel vis-à-vis the Arab Gulf states,” Katz said. “This is a significant step up in the relations between Israel and the states in the region.”

Even though it was not a state-level visit, it’s still “quite an unprecedented step, showing that the relationship has gone quite far,” believes Dmitriy Maryasis, senior fellow with the Russian Institute of Oriental Studies.

“The Iranian issue is definitely the base of their relationship, it’s always easier to unite against a common enemy,” Maryasis told RT.

Tactically, the Sunni countries of the Persian Gulf and Israel turned out to be on the same side regarding the relations with Iran – both of them perceive it as a threat.

The Iranian “threat” – real or imaginary – is not the only thing that brings together Israel and the Gulf States. The Arab monarchies have apparently also “grown wary” of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Maryasis believes, since it’s hard to imagine that such a “threat” would bring them together some 20 years ago. Still, the improving relations appear to be a tactical move and might not last.

“I see no strategy there, it’s a purely tactical thing. If the situation changes, the relations between Israel and these countries might change as well,” Maryasis warned.

The bonding between Israel and the Gulf States, many of which don't recognize Israel as a country, is unlikely to reach a high-profile formal level.

“Since the Palestinian issue exists, no one would dare to establish high-level political contacts with Israel over ideological and internal policy issues,” Maryasis said, bringing back the example of Egypt. Signing the peace treaty with Israel back in 1979 ultimately cost then-President Anwar Sadat his life.

While the Gulf States and Israel have quite a vast field to cooperate on – Tel Aviv possesses advanced irrigation technologies and the Arab nations have money to spend on them – prospects of their economic cooperation are still quite murky, Maryasis believes. Aside from political issues, the very unstable situation in the region is likely to derail any major infrastructure projects, such as the ambitious “Tracks to Peace” plan, promoted by Katz.

The plan envisions the construction of a railroad from Israel to Oman, which would provide infrastructure and access to the Mediterranean for the Gulf Arab states. Security risks would likely prevent the project from getting from paper into reality, just as they doomed the Egypt-Israel gas pipeline, which ceased to operate after being repeatedly blown up by terrorists in the Sinai peninsula.

Israel ‘preparing’ for military involvement if US-Iran tensions erupt into confrontation
Amid escalating tensions in the region, Israel has said it is preparing for possible military involvement in a confrontation between the US and Iran.

Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz warned an international security forum on Tuesday that the situation might be brought out of the “gray zone” and into the “red zone” of “military conflagration” if Iran makes any “mistaken calculations.”

Israel, Katz said, “must be prepared” for such an escalation and continues to “devote itself to building up its military might” in the event that it would have to “respond to escalation scenarios.”

The comments came after a senior Iranian lawmaker warned on Monday that if the US attacks Iran, Tehran will respond and “only half an hour will remain of Israel’s lifespan.”

The two nations frequently exchange threats and Israel has previously threatened to take military action against Iran to prevent it from making nuclear weapons, though Tehran has denied it is trying to produce the bombs.

Israel has been a major supporter of US President Donald Trump’s aggressive “maximum pressure” policy against Iran, including the economic sanctions Washington has used to strangle the country’s economy. Katz predicted that the “economic war” on Iran would be successful despite the lack of enthusiasm for it shown by Europe and other powers − a source of frustration in Washington.

Tensions between the US and Iran has been mounting for months, with the US accusing Tehran of attacking two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman in June. Iran later shot down an American spy drone which it said had entered its airspace, prompting Trump to consider a military strike which he backed away from at the last minute.

Washington accused Tehran of "playing with fire" on Monday after it announced that it had breached uranium enrichment limits under the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal.

Trump abandoned the deal last year, calling it a “disaster” and the “worst deal ever” but expected Tehran to remain compliant. The White House also alleged on Monday that Tehran had violated the terms of the deal before it even existed.

年間110兆円の軍事費を使って世界を支配している欧米は、イランの核武装を恐れています。もし戦争するならイランの弾道ミサイル施設とウラン濃縮工場を奇襲攻撃をします。イランも反撃するでしょう。イスラエルは、強力な弾道ミサイル迎撃システムを持つています。イランの作戦は、弾道ミサイルの飽和攻撃以外ありません、同時に100発の弾道ミサイルを発射することです。問題は、イランが弾道ミサイルどのくらい数持つていいるかですね。ロシアは、ソ連時代に5万トンのタイフーン型戦略核ミサイル潜水艦の核ミサイル20発の同時発射に成功しました。軍神 安倍総理万歳。
