Wipe Israel from map, says Iran’s president

Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad, Iran’s fundamentalist president, on Wednesday declared that Israel should be “wiped off the map” and warned Arab countries against developing economic ties with Israel in response to its withdrawal from Gaza.
His remarks, delivered at a conference in Tehran entitled “A World without Zionism”, led to diplomatic protests by the UK, France and Spain, while Shimon Peres, Israel’s deputy prime minister, said Iran should be expelled from the United Nations.
In Washington, spokesmen for the Bush administration said the statement underscored US concern over Iran’s nuclear weapons programme.
Mr Ahmadi-Nejad’s comments came as Islamic Jihad, a militant Palestinian group allied to Iran, killed at least five Israelis with a bombing in the Israeli town of Hedera. Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility, saying it was avenging Israel’s killing of a West Bank commander on Monday.
US analysts noted that the president’s remarks were not a departure from hardline Iranian rhetoric and did not represent new policy.
But they said the rhetoric was aggressive and badly timed, and would serve to confirm western suspicions of Iran’s more confrontational approach that were raised by the new president’s speeches at the United Nations last month.
However, European diplomats suggested the comments would not derail efforts by France, Germany and the UK to get Iran to return to the negotiating table and halt work at its Isfahan uranium conversion facility. One diplomat said the EU3 had made a point of keeping the nuclear issue separate from Iranian support for militant Palestinian groups during two years of talks.
“As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map,” Mr Ahmadi-Nejad said, citing Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of Iran’s Islamic revolution.
The president told an audience of students there was “no doubt the new wave [of attacks] in Palestine will soon wipe off this disgraceful blot from the face of the Islamic world”.
“Anybody who recognises Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation’s fury,” he said, in remarks aimed at Arab states.
Mr Ahmadi-Nejad, who took office in August, was departing from the moderate line of his reformist predecessor, Mohammad Khatami, who argued Iran should be no more radical about Israel than the Palestinians themselves. Reformist figures in Iran have recently warned that Mr Ahmadi-Nejad’s stern rhetoric endangers Iran’s national interest and could encourage the referral of Tehran’s nuclear programme to the UN Security Council. Iran denies its development of the nuclear fuel cycle is for military use.

  1. This is not a response to this post but...hehehe...I am a little bit intimidated by some of the links you have posted (blogs). NOT intellectually (oh hell no), but because some of the people seem a little scary to me.! They aren't just different, they seem like a totally different species ;)
    Um...I will try to lurk a bit more to see if I feel that I can say hello without getting murdered one one or two of them. I'm sure they are very nice people but they might see me as a trespassor. However, that could 110% be a subjective misreading of them through ignorant eyes since I don't think I've met people like that before. Anyway, maybe I will soon.

  2. Bad Manatee. I didn't proofread.

  3. Manateechick don't be shy. I am unashamedly a conservative, most of the post I put up will be from those style of sites or blogs. I also love all things to do with the space program and get a lot of amusment out of things that tend to the bizar. As far as proof reading please don't ever worry about that I refuse to run spellcheck or check grammer on any of my posts. This tends to upset some people but I find it as more of a tactic. If someone critisizes someones spelling or grammer it is because they don't have a legittamate argument to debate what the other person is saying.

    Please feel free to lurk. I would also recommend lurking at several of the links on my sidebar. The best ones are as follows Mikes America, for pure politics, Grizzly Mama, a homeschooling mother (not due to religion) but to make sure her girls know how to read,write and are not indoctrinated, A Tangled Web is a British blog well worth the read to see the view from accros the pond, and last but not least. Iraq The Model, this is a blog by two iraqi brothers that are Dentists, if you want a perspective of Iraq that is unfiltered and is actually written by Iraqies it's the best site on the net.

    Being from california and from the left side of the isle I would be wary of sending you to Frontpage Mag, research David Horowitz first..

    Happy Lurking
