Tehran Times: "Iran missiles can reach Israel nuclear sites"

I've been noting examples of Iran's military bravado in the English material published by its press agencies for years now, and I can't remember seeing anything this specific before. Iran is getting more brazen, and something needs to be done soon:
IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad-Ali Jafari said on Wednesday that Zionists’ nuclear sites and facilities are within range of Iranian missiles.

He made the remarks in an address to the 4th International Conference for Support of Palestine, The Model of Resistance, and Gaza, the Victim of War Crimes in Tehran on Wednesday.

The combat readiness of the Iranian forces is very high, he said adding that Iran is now at its best military status to defend its territorial integrity.

"Our military doctrine is defensive; he said, adding that if the enemies such as the Zionist regime dare targeting the country they will be given a crushing response with full force.

Iran has ample long-ranged missiles which can hit their targets over 2,000 kilometer away which means that all parts of the Zionist regime as well as its nuclear sites are within reach of Iranian missiles, pointed out the commander.

On recent threats made by Zionists officials, he said they have no resort but making such baseless allegations. The U.S. and the Zionist regime are not in a position to take military action against Iran, he underlined.

"I would like once again to repeat the historical comments made by the Late Imam Khomeini that the U.S. and the Zionist regime cannot do a damn thing," concluded the commander.
Also at Tehran Times currently, Ahmadinejad explains that "Zionists do not believe in Judaism":
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday noted that Basically, Zionists do not believe in Judaism, Christianity or any other religion.

Zionism is not a religion, but rather an ideology with evil objectives, he pointed out at the conference on supporting Palestinians which opened in Tehran on Wednesday.

"The Zionist front is a faction with at most 2000 personnel and a few thousands of agents who control financial, political and media centers and some sections of the U.S. and EU governments," he explained. [...]
Only until the upcoming retirement.
