There are a number of factors that affect radar. This includes power of the radar set in question, weather at the time, terrain around the antenna, and the horizon. If you have a mountainous region, then unless you set your antenna up at the top of a mountain to look down, the mountains around the antenna will affect your beam, and block it from seeing things in the mountains. Even on the top of the mountain, anything down in valleys or on the back side of a mountain will be blocked.
The US used to have an antenna called the ROTH-b. It had a minimum range of something like 500 miles. It couldn't see anything closer than that because it bounced the radar beam off the ionosphere to look over the horizon. It was affected by atmospheric conditions a lot more than a normal radar would be though.

If anything comes true from religious books, it is because it is self-fulfilling. Such "prophecies" are not true in themselves. Extremist muslims (and I would venture to include Iranian leader Ahmadinejad in this category) believe a great war must be had before the coming of the Mahdi and whatnot. Extremists Judeo-Christians think something similar in regards to the coming of the Anti-Christ/Jesus thereafter.
Lebanese sources later reported a Russian Mig-31 fighter had crossed over Sinai Wednesday in the direction of Israel. It veered west over the Mediterranean after encountering an Israeli warning not to intrude into its air space and continued flying over Lebanon. Military sources say that the only external military force in the eastern Mediterranean region is a fleet of 18 Russian warships, which includes landing-craft – among the largest in the Russian Navy – with 2,000 marines aboard.
