    Iran Threatens to Destroy Israel in 30 Minutes: Does this Confirm Prophecy of a Speedy Gog and Magog?
    https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/132663/iran-threatens-destroy-israel-30-minutes...
    1 day ago · Iran is over 1,100 miles from Israel. Intercontinental ballistic missiles travel at approximately 3.5 miles per second. Based on these figures, a nuclear-capable ICBM from Iran would arrive in Israel 5-7 minutes after being fired. In this case, Zolnour’s threat of destroying Israel

    excerpt:

    On that day, when Gog sets foot on the soil of Yisrael—declares Hashem—My raging anger shall flare up. Ezekiel 38:18 (The Israel Bible™)

    A senior Iranian official threatened Israel but revised his threat from seven minutes until total obliteration, to half an hour. This raised the question of precisely how long the War of Gog and Magog will last.

    It was reported in Mehr news on Monday that Mojtaba Zolnour, the chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, threatened Israel with retaliation that would entirely destroy the country.

    “If the U.S. attacks us, only half an hour will remain of Israel’s lifespan,” Zolnour said on Monday, according to Mehr.

    This is not the first time Zolnour has threatened Israel and if anything, he gives Israel slightly more leeway than he did in his previous threats. In 2017, Zolnour threatened the U.S. and then expanded his threat to include Israel.

    The US army’s fifth fleet is “all within the range of Iran’s missile systems and they will be razed to the ground if the enemy makes a mistake,” Zonour said. Doubling down on Karimpour’s threat, he added, “And only 7 minutes are needed for the Iranian missile to hit Tel Aviv.”

    Iran is over 1,100 miles from Israel. Intercontinental ballistic missiles travel at approximately 3.5 miles per second. Based on these figures, a nuclear-capable ICBM from Iran would arrive in Israel 5-7 minutes after being fired. In this case, Zolnour’s threat of destroying Israel in half an hour seems realistic. Of course, this is only true if Israel does not utilize its robust anti-missile capabilities.

    From your interesting "biblical perspective" on the news link....
    It's interesting how remarkably similar this is to Hillary's threat
    to "obliterate Iran" if it attacked Israel. Trump has threatened
    Iran's "end" if they fight with Ameristan.

    So questions arise....
    - How serious are all these threats?
    - Should we go to war over rhetoric?
    - If Iran's threat is so very wrong, then are our threats equally wrong?
    - Is it even wrong for Iran to defend itself against USA's attack by
    retaliating against USA's tool in the region, Israel?

    Looking at history, only Ameristan has actually attempted to carry
    out such a threat (using Iraq in the proxy war on Iran). We've killed
    hundreds of thousands of Iranians already. We should expect that
    a country whose very existence we've repeatedly threatened would
    use every means at its disposal to deter future attacks.

    Iran has been threatening Israel for four decades and Israel threatens Iran.. Both threaten the Saudi oil facilities in the Eastern province to include Ras Tanura and Jubail. They're all idiots.

    The saddest part of the story is religion has to do with it.

    I don't think its about religion at all.

    Jews have lived in Iran for 2500 years. Further, until 1979 Israel bought all its petroleum from Iran.

    It's not about religion?
    Your link in the OP is all about biblical prophecy.

    The Saudi Peace Initiative BEFORE Bush's invasion of Iraq included rebuilding TAPLINE from Kirkuk to Haifa.. Ariel Sharon mocked it. Then some in the US media claimed that Bush's war was about cheap oil for Israel. Do you see how incredibly all these people are?

    How about this one?

    Trans-Israel pipeline - Wikipedia
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Israel_pipeline
    Trans-Israel pipeline (Hebrew: קו צינור אילת אשקלון ‎), also Tipline or Eilat-Ashkelon Pipeline is an oil pipeline in Israel that transported crude oil originating from Iran inside Israel and to Europe.. History. The pipeline was built in 1968. Iran halted use of the pipeline after Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi was overthrown in the Iranian Islamic Revolution of 1979.

    I don't see how this relates to Judeo-christian vs Islam religious hostilities.

    Its about dominance and keeping the neighbors poor. Gog and Magog already invaded.. Of course the Rapture Ready crowd don't know that.

    Idiocy certainly abounds.
    But I see it as exacerbated by religion....along with politics & enmity.

    I see more factors at work, eg, USA wanting a neutered Iran, & willing to kill
    millions in order to serve Israel. Christians here go on & on about "God's
    chosen people" (the Jews), & that we must destroy any threat to them.
    Muslim lives around the world don't matter to most Ameristanians.

    Religion.
    Did I mention religion?

    Iranian leadership is also pretty nutty about the end times.

    Israel isn't served by killing Iranians. The Jewish population of Iran has steadily shrunk since Zionism and 1948, but there are still a lot of Jews in Iran and in general they are a prosperous bunch... Like the Jewish community in Bahrain.

    Religion again rears its ugly head.

    I'm no fan of Islam....nor Christianity & Judaism.
    But at least in Ameristan, there's a possibility that sane & secular
    foreign policy can arise. We could begin treating Islamic countries
    fairly & peacefully....gain allies who aren't just Christians & Jews.

    You could say that religion is a tool of politicians.
    But politics can also be a tool of religion.
    Pursuit of evil can stem from either.

    Hold on a minute. KSA has never threatened Israel, nor has the UAE or Kuwait or Lebanon.. Israel NEEDS an enemy so they aren't innocent in this mess.

    I certainly don't see Israel as innocent.
    As for KSA being a threat....
    It supported Iraq in its attack upon Iran.
    https://www.history.com/topics/middle-east/iran-iraq-war

    Saudis are not saints.
    The regime is oppressive, murderous, & has a culture which
    created the 9/11 attackers. They're more customer than ally.

    The 9-11 gang followed Sayeed Qubt and Hasan al Banna… both outlawed since the early 1970s.

    KSA never attacked any other country's oil tankers nor mined the Strait of Hormuz,

    Do you even remember 1980?

      Iraq first targeted Iran's shipping and by 1984 attacked Kharg Island, a crucial oil-tanker-loading terminal for Iran. Its air force also attacked ships in the Persian Gulf.
