Iran says NATO missile shield system in Turkey to be "Israel's eye": lawmaker


08:29, November 25, 2011

TEHRAN, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- Chairman of Iran's Majlis ( parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said Thursday that NATO's plan to establish a missile shield system in Turkey will serve as Israel's eye over the regional countries, the local satellite Press TV reported.

"NATO's missile or radar system in Turkey is in fact the eye of Israel in the region and this will not help the security of Turkey and the regional countries," Boroujerdi was quoted as saying.

NATO's radar in Turkey is aimed at enhancing the Israeli regime 's surveillance over the Middle East, said Boroujerdi according to Press TV.

Iranian officials have called on Turkey to withdraw from the plan to deploy a NATO missile shield system in its territory.

According to earlier reports, a NATO warning radar system is going to be deployed in Turkey by the end of this year and it will be used to track missiles launched from Iran.

Another day, another anti-Semitic tinged comment from Iran. Hey "Supreme Leader", your people know you use anti-Israeli rhetoric to prop up your power. What Freud called the narcissism of minor differences - using hate to create a social order that pampers you and fattens your wallet. Real Persians are not haters like your parasitic mullatariat.
