AP's boilerplate big lie(s) on Iran

AP covers yesterday's test launch of an Iranian missile, and ends the article with this boilerplate:
Ahmadinejad has repeatedly called for Israel's elimination, and the Jewish state has not ruled out a military strike to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat.
Grade: 33%. Ahmadinejad has not "repeatedly," or ever, "called for Israel's elimination," and there is no "Iranian nuclear threat." The "Jewish state" has indeed, however, not ruled out a military strike against Iran. Actually "33%" may be too high, because even that is only a half-truth; a more accurate statement would be "the Jewish state has repeatedly threatened military action against Iran."
