Iran: Israel's threats show "crisis of Zionists"

Iran said Monday that the Israeli threats against it were born of the failure of Jerusalem to turn the international community against Teheran. An Iranian foreign ministry spokesman said that recent statements by Israeli politicians regarding the nuclear threat from Iran were due to the "internal crisis of the Zionists," Israel Radio reported, and prove that Israel is the cause of instability in the region. Sources close to Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz said on Monday that Israel knows well what to do about Iran, and that the noisy suggestions about Iran on the part of Israeli politicians only harm Israel's security.
