Iranian President calls for the destruction of Israel

ABC News (abcnews.go.com) reports that the current President of Iran has called for the destruction of Israel:




The President of Iran calls for the destruction of Israel

Iran's hard-line president called for Israel to be "wiped off the map" and said a new wave of Palestinian attacks will destroy the Jewish state, state-run media reported Wednesday.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also denounced attempts to recognize Israel or normalize relations with it.

"There is no doubt that the new wave (of attacks) in Palestine will wipe off this stigma (Israel) from the face of the Islamic world," Ahmadinejad told students Wednesday during a Tehran conference called "The World without Zionism."

Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury, (while) any (Islamic leader) who recognizes the Zionist regime means he is acknowledging the surrender and defeat of the Islamic world," Ahmadinejad said.

Ahmadinejad also repeated the words of the founder of Iran's Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who called for the destruction of Israel.

"As the imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map," said Ahmadinejad, who came to power in August and replaced Mohammad Khatami, a reformist who advocated international dialogue and tried to improve Iran's relations with the West.

Ahmadinejad referred to Israel's recent withdrawal from the Gaza Strip as a "trick," saying Gaza was already a part of Palestinian lands and the pullout was designed to win acknowledgment of Israel by Islamic states.

"The fighting in Palestine is a war between the (whole) Islamic nation and the world of arrogance," Ahmadinejad said, using Tehran's propaganda epithet for the United States and Israel. "Today, Palestinians are representing the Islamic nation against arrogance."

Iran does not recognize the existence of Israel and has often called for its destruction.

This delusional Islamic Supremacist shouldn't be a president of any country, much less a country with such a rich history like Iran. That said, when such a fascist bastard is in power and clearly calls for the mass murder of millions of people, the world community should ban Iran from all international organizations, including the United Nations. Unfortunately this won't happen, but the Israel army will address such serious threats when the time comes.

In 1981 there was another country calling for the destruction of Israel and acquiring nuclear weapons. For more information, click here to read an article on "How Israel destroyed Iraq's nuclear reactor (built by the French) in 1981".

Iran Leader Calls for Israel's Destruction ABC News, 10/26/2005, Link

TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's hard-line president called for Israel to be "wiped off the map" and said a new wave of Palestinian attacks will destroy the Jewish state, state-run media reported Wednesday.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also denounced attempts to recognize Israel or normalize relations with it.

"There is no doubt that the new wave (of attacks) in Palestine will wipe off this stigma (Israel) from the face of the Islamic world," Ahmadinejad told students Wednesday during a Tehran conference called "The World without Zionism."

"Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury, (while) any (Islamic leader) who recognizes the Zionist regime means he is acknowledging the surrender and defeat of the Islamic world," Ahmadinejad said.

Ahmadinejad also repeated the words of the founder of Iran's Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who called for the destruction of Israel.

"As the imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map," said Ahmadinejad, who came to power in August and replaced Mohammad Khatami, a reformist who advocated international dialogue and tried to improve Iran's relations with the West.

Ahmadinejad referred to Israel's recent withdrawal from the Gaza Strip as a "trick," saying Gaza was already a part of Palestinian lands and the pullout was designed to win acknowledgment of Israel by Islamic states.

"The fighting in Palestine is a war between the (whole) Islamic nation and the world of arrogance," Ahmadinejad said, using Tehran's propaganda epithet for the United States and Israel. "Today, Palestinians are representing the Islamic nation against arrogance."

Iran does not recognize the existence of Israel and has often called for its destruction.

Israel has been at the forefront of nations calling and end to Iran's nuclear program, which the United States and many others in the West say is aimed at acquiring weapons of mass destruction. Iran says the program is for generating electricity.

White House press secretary Scott McClellan said Ahmadinejad's comment "reconfirms what we have been saying about the regime in Iran. It underscores the concerns we have about Iran's nuclear intentions."

French Foreign Minister Jean-Baptiste Mattei condemned Ahmadinejad's remarks "with the utmost firmness."

Harsh words for Israel are common in Iran, especially at this time of year, the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. In Iran, this Friday the last Muslim day of prayer in the Ramadan holiday has been declared Quds Day, or Jerusalem Day. Rallies were slated in support of Palestinians and against Israel's occupation of parts of the city and other Palestinian lands.

Other Iranian politicians also have issued anti-Israeli statements, in attempts to whip up support for Friday's nationwide Quds Day demonstrations.

But Ahmadinejad's strident anti-Israeli statements on the eve of the demonstration were harsher than those issued during the term of the reformist Khatami and harkened back to Khomeini's fiery speeches. Ahmadinejad was a longtime member of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards, which even operates a division dubbed the Quds Division, a rhetorical reference to Tehran's hopes of one day ending Israel's domination of Islam's third-holiest city.

After his election, Ahmadinejad received the support of the powerful hard-line Revolutionary Guards, who report directly to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Last year, a senior member of the guards attended a meeting that called for and accepted applications for suicide bombers to target U.S. troops and Israelis.

Iran announced earlier this year that it had fully developed solid fuel technology for missiles, a major breakthrough that increases their accuracy.

The Shahab-3, with a range of 810 miles to 1,200 miles, is capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to Israel and U.S. forces in the Middle East

The President of Iran, Mahmoud is a very sick man. Not mentally, but Psychiatricly. He has is paranoid that the West and more specifically, Israel and the Jews run the world, that if Israel were " wiped off the map" the world would be a better place, and believes that the whole world, specifacly the West should be Islamasized.

I an tired of this arogant, grandiose, and mentally deficient sub-human in intelligence be given air time of the network news stations of the Western World.

I believe that all of the West should Unite and remove this unstable retard from power. He threatens worls peace, brings other countries into conflict, and like is dead ( thank G-d_ hero Adolph Hitler want a Third World War. He must release the British Sailors at once, be commited to a State run Psychiatric facility. He should be put in a padded room, interogated by the Mousad, beaten by mmyself since I hate him to the core, and be forced to undergo sleep deprivation, given little food or water, and no bathroom breaks. He will undergo intense deprograming of his anti-semetic views, apologize to Israel, England, and the USA for his hatefull ways and be held a hostage along with his cabinet until he comes out singing and saying, I love and respect Israel and Jews all over the world.

I believe this is the only way you deal with a very disturbed man such as Mahmoud.He needs to be forced from power and when he is better teach science at the University and never again speak is hate.

He is irrational, illogical, angry, stupid-- an animal is smarter than him.Let's ignore this diaper wearing, foul mouthed toddler and just put hims away in hospital/prison where he can do no more harm.

Down with Mahmoud and his mentally defcient sons. I hope they all die a painfull death and burn over and over in the fires of Hell!
