    Pakistani Defense Minister Makes Nuclear Threat Against Israel After Fake News Provoc

    Pakistan’s defense minister, Khawaja Muhammad Asif, wrote a frightening Twitter post in response to a fake news article stating that Israel would attack Pakistan with nuclear weapons.

    “Israeli def min threatens nuclear retaliation presuming pak role in Syria against Daesh,” Asif wrote on Twitter Friday, referring to the Islamic State. “Israel forgets Pakistan is a Nuclear state too.”

    — Khawaja M. Asif (@KhawajaMAsif) December 23, 2016
    According to The New York Times, Asif appeared to be responding to a fake news article published earlier in the week on awdnews.com titled, “Israeli Defense Minister: If Pakistan send ground troops into Syria on any pretext, we will destroy this country with a nuclear attack.”

    Pakistan and Israel both have nuclear arsenals.

    Asif appeared to accept the article at face value, according to the Times. The story doesn’t mention Israel’s current defense minister, Avigdor Lieberman, and instead quotes a former minister, Moshe Yaalon, who resigned in May.

    Israel’s Defense Ministry responded to Asif’s tweet, denying the former Israeli defense minister made the statement cited in the fake news article.

    “The statement attributed to fmr Def Min Yaalon re Pakistan was never said,” the Defense Ministry wrote in its official Twitter account. “Reports referred to by the Pakistani Def Min are entirely false.”

    Asif did not immediately respond on Twitter.


    This isn’t the first time Pakistan’s defense minister has made a nuclear threat. In a September interview, Asif said he would be open to using nuclear weapons against India.

    the sad thing is that it could have been true news, because the way Israel loves to threaten all kind of countries with their strong rhetoric

    at least Israel knows what to expect if they do next time,

    cheeky fuckers,

    If Israel takes on the Pakis they take on half the Arab world as well, including the Saudis as it was them who financed the Paki nuke program.

    Saudi Arabia and Pakistan's nuclear weapons pact - Business Insider

    Which means effectively that the Saudis have nukes on demand if they dont actually have them in the country already.

    Someone in Washington must be wondering who they back in this the Pakis-Saudis or their (ex) good friends Israel.

    I have no doubt Asif knew it was fake news, but took the opportunity to put it out there that Pakistan won't take things lying down.

    Again we see Israel supporting daesh. Fake news, indeed, but credible and with this basis of truth.

    It is. The sucker made a fool of himself by going off half cocked over a fake news report- but what he said isn't scary, it is a statement of fact.

    "Made in Pakistan" I wouldn't be surprised if hits Mecca instead of Jerusalem.

    Yep, it's a non-story really. Media hype.

    It's a biblical prophecy that's bringing us closer to Gods judgment day.
    Pakistan is fulfilling Bible prophecy.

    The Pakis would need a loan for the rocket fuel while the Israelis can rest easy, slurping on America's tit.

    Pakistan's Defence Minister Khawaja Asif Threatens To Nuke India
    Responding to "if" ...

    "We will destroy India if it dares to impose war on us. Pakistan army is fully prepared to answer any misadventure of India," he told private TV channel SAMAA.

    He was replying to a question about India's intention to carry out surgical strike in Pakistan.

    "We have not made atomic device to display in a showcase. If a such a situation arises we will use it and eliminate India," Asif said the channel.
    Just a bit less subtle that the verbiage used by the USA, but basically the same message ...

    "No options off the table"

    Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press January 26, White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card suggested that the United States might retaliate with nuclear weapons to a chemical or biological attack. Hussein “should anticipate that the United States will use whatever means necessary to protect us and the world from a holocaust,” Card said. When asked if that included nuclear weapons, Card responded, “I’m not going to put anything on the table or off the table.”
    President Barack Obama warned Iran on Tuesday the United States would keep up pressure on its disputed nuclear program with "no options off the table" but said the door remained open to talks for a peaceful resolution.
    Donald Trump refused to take the use of nuclear weapons off the table in any situation, including in Europe or the Middle East, during a wide-ranging town hall on Wednesday on MSNBC.

    Saber rattling and you left out the most important part conveniently;

    As India handed over proof to Pakistani envoy Abdul Basit that the terrorists, who killed 18 soldiers in this month's deadly attack on an army installation in Uri, belonged to Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir, the neighbouring country's Defence Minister on Tuesday launched a fresh tirade, threatening nuclear strikes against New Delhi if it retaliated against the killings.

    Statements of fact can't be scary?
