Iran says, “Israel, Wipe Them Out”

Iran’s new President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has dropped the Mr. Nice guy lately.

Yahoo News: Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury, 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.

So Mr. Ahmadinejad just how do you propose to do that with all peaceful nuclear technology you are working on that you just transferred to your military? The radical shift in Iran shows how much pressure having two democratic states on their borders added to the domestic cry for freedom is having. They must paint everyone as an enemy of Iran and create a struggle to maintain enough support to stop freedom. Current political problems in the US have left an opening for other nations to pour on pressure. Several have been taking advantage this week including Canada on timber and NAFTA.

Others : Captains Quarters and Jihad Watch.
