Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has issued a warning to the Israeli Government, within hours of Israel announcing that it had test-fired a ballistic missile. Mr Ahmadinejad says Israel would not dare to attack Iran because of the response it would expect. Reports in the Israeli media say the missile tested was capable of carrying what is described as an unconventional payload, an apparent reference to a nuclear warhead. The Israeli military routinely refuses to comment on its missile tests.

In an interview with Al Jazeera TV, the Iranian leader also said Israel "lacks the courage" to launch a strike against the Iranian state. "They're aware that any attempt at a strike will be confronted by a very strong response," he said. Mr Ahmadinejad has also accused US President George W Bush of sowing the seeds of division during his recent Middle East visit. He says Mr Bush had brought a message of confrontation during his tour during which he warned Arab allies that Iran posed a threat.

Mahmaod Ahmadinejad is again playing with fire by teasing Israel with his comments. Israel on the other hand has heard these type of threats many times before. If Israel decides to strike Iran, you can be sure that it will be thorough. Israel will not let Iran strike the first blow.

In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem. Zechariah 12:6
