Israel has never been so helpless as it is now: Iran's Defense Minister

Tehran, June 29, IRNA

Minister of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar said here Sunday that Israel has never been so helpless as it is now and its current threats against Iran is a psychological war.
Making the remark at the end of a cabinet meeting in response to questions of reporters on Israeli threats against Iran, he said that the helplessness of the Zionist regime has forced it to embark on diverting the public opinion.
The Zionists attempt to get rid of its internal crisis and cover up its crimes and massacre of innocent Palestinian civilians by resorting to such a psychological war and media campaign against Iran, he noted.
Iran has always been prepared to confront any possible attack thanks to its armed forces and vigilant nation.
Asked about an American missile base in Iraq, he said that the presence of US forces in Iraq is a threat to its own security.
Responding to another question on a plot to kidnap President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during his visit to Iraq, he said, "I confirm that there was such a threat (against the president) and but if necessary, Mr. president himself will speak about it in details."
