Threatened use? Arguably
Targeted an ally? Definitely
Iran threatens to eliminate Israel | Iran news | Jerusalem Post
"Should Israel take any action against Iran, we will eliminate Israel from the scene of the universe," Gen. Muhammad Reza Ashtiani said in Teheran on Tuesday.
The bilateral relationship
Your government argues otherwise.Britain is a good friend of Israel and has a long-standing historical engagement in the Middle East. We strongly support an end to the Arab-Israeli conflict and we are heavily involved in bringing stability and peace to the region. Our good relations with all the Middle Eastern players, our leading role in the EU and our close partnership with the US, make Britain a natural partner for Israel.
I have never seen Israel's PM in UK on my news shaking hands with our PM, what does he do? And British Governments know outspoken support for Israel means a kick in the election.
Well Israel doesn't count. I doubt many Brits see Israel as a 'ally ally'
Allies to me is US, Canada, Australia, alot of our commonwealth who have historical ties with United Kingdom
