Iran Threatens to Conquer Jerusalem

As talks to rein in Iran's nuclear weapons development program go nowhere, Tehran is growing increasingly bellicose.

During a week in which it unveiled several improved weapons systems, including its Ra'd air defense system which "has been developed to target aggressive US planes" (http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=9106241392), Iran has also threatened to conquer Jerusalem. As reported by Iran's Fars News Agency (http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=9106241410):

"A senior Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) commander warned that any Israeli aggression against Iran would trigger an Iranian operation whose objective would be conquering Beitol-Moghaddas (Jerusalem).

'If the Zionist regime embarks on a strategic mistake and initiates an action against our country, we will respond to them with the 'Towards Beitol-Moghaddas" Operations,' Commander of Tehran's Corps General Mohsen Kazzemeini said Thursday night."
