Iran Test-fires Long-range Missile

Iran has test-fired a long-range missile, signaling nuclear capability for an atomic bomb that could one day strike Israel, The Jerusalem Posts reports.

Maj. Gen. Amos Yadlin, the chief of Israel's military intelligence, said at a Cabinet meeting that Iran has now "crossed the technological threshold" and warns that Iran is continuing to amass low-enriched uranium.

A week ago, U.S. military chief, Adm. Mike Mullen also said Iran has enough fissile material to build a nuclear bomb.

Israeli officials consider a nuclear Iran as the most serious threat to the Jewish state.

Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has repeatedly called for destruction of Israel.

But the country insists its nuclear program is a peaceful way to generate electricity in order to export its gas and crude.
