Iran: Sijil-2 "clear message to the Zionist regime"

Meaning, no doubt, "adjust your timetables":
An Iranian expert said Wednesday that the launch of Sijil-2 missile by the Islamic Republic of Iran was a clear message to the Zionist regime and a response to any possible foolish act by the regime to attack IRI's strategic sites.

In an interview with al-Alam TV network on Wednesday, Amir Mousavi referred to high capabilities of the new Iranian-made ballistic missile including its high destruction power and accurate aiming and said the launch of the missile was a clear message to the Zionist regime.

Rejecting the regime's claims that the missile is a threat for the European countries, Mousavi said the missile's range is not too long to hit the European countries, "but it could inflict severe damages on the Zionists."
Let's see, the reason it isn't a threat is because of its limited range. The "World Arrogance and hegemonic powers" should find that very comforting.
He added the Sijji-2 ballistic missile which was successfully test-fired on Wednesday is technically upgraded but its range has not changed in comparison with the Shahab-3.

With the missile, the Islamic Republic of Iran can hit well-fortified and deep targets.

The expert stated that the ground-to-ground missile is equipped with two advanced engines and has high speed and developed launch pad which helps it exactly hit its target. It works on solid fuel, he added.

He said Sejil-2 is equipped with a sensitive radar and a new warhead with high destruction power.
A new warhead--how interesting! Meanwhile, as you doubtless already know, some other Muslims were also very excited about their new missile. Iran's PressTV covers the foiled bomb and missile plot in New York fairly straightforwardly. It doesn't call the men Muslims, but it links Muslims to the motivation of one of the would-be bombers.:
The FBI and other agencies monitored the four men and provided an inactive missile and inert C-4 to the informant for the defendants, a federal complaint said.

Cromitie whose parents lived in Afghanistan was determined to do "something to America" in protest to the killings of Muslim people in Afghanistan and Pakistan by US military forces, the US officials said.

In October 2008, the informant began meeting with the defendants at a Newburgh house equipped with concealed video and audio equipment, the complaint said. The four men selected the synagogue and the community center they intended to hit in April 2009, it said. [...]
While we're visiting Iranian news land, a story at Fars news declares "Iran's Policy Determining in World."
