Iran has successfully tested a Shihab-3 missile, which has a range that can reach Israel. The launch last week was the most successful so far of the seven or eight tests of the missile over the last five years, and has increased worries in Washington - which spotted the test with its tracking mechanisms - and in Israel.
If the assessment proves to be true that the missile, which was launched from east to west, had an effective range beyond the 1,300-kilometer red line, meaning the range from western Iran to Israel, the Iranians could position the launching pads for the rocket deeper inside their country.

Thanks for the ping. Glad to see all the discussion. Thanks for posting the info on Coalition for Democracy in Iran. Very good. I wonder if Eala in the Seattle area might find out some info by contacting them?
Doc, didn't know if you have seen this yet: Michael Ledeen enters the blogospere to defend his Iran policy in an Iranian blogger's comment thread where he had come under attack, then asks how he can help. Amazing stuff. Click
