Ahmadinejad: 'Countdown to Israel's Destruction Has Begun'Topics: Iran
NRO's "the corner" does have a point: The imminent destruction of Israel would require weapons of mass destruction. So doesn't Ahmadinejad saying today that the countdown to Israel's destruction has begun make President Bush's holy-grail diplomatic settlement to Iran's "peaceful" nuclear program moot?
Via Ynet News:After all, wouldn't the "imminent destruction of Israel," require weapons of mass destruction?
The countdown to Israel's destruction has begun, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in a speech commemorating the death of Iranian revolution leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini on Sunday.
"The arrogant superpowers and the Zionist regime invested all their efforts during the 33-day war, but after 60 years, their pride has been trampled and the countdown to the destruction of this regime has been started by Hizbullah fighters," the president was quoted as saying by Iranian news agency Mehr.
Ahmadinejad added that "with the help of all the Lebanese and Palestinian fighters, we will witness the destruction of this regime in the near future... Anyone who works for God and believes in the power of the people will prevail."
Robert Spencer notes at Jihad Watch (hat tip - "the corner") notes that the Thug-In-Chief is apparently working on a timetable, with statements like:" ... the countdown to the destruction of this regime has been started by Hizbullah fighters..., we will witness the destruction of this regime in the near future..., the Zionist regime will be forced to bow down to the Palestinians and officially acknowledge this people" and "The final victory, the power of the people, and the destruction of tryants is near."
Is anyone in our mainsteam media and in Washington paying attention?
As also noted by Spencer, "Israel has recognized the Palestinians again and again. What has never happened, and never will happen, is recognition of Israel by Hamas and Hizballah."
This, as we hear also today from Hamas in Gaza: "Kill the Jews and the Americans "to the Very Last One"
And Iran [and the party of Islamic Appeasers (Democrats) who want us to talk and deal with Islamic fascists, thinking maybe they can find common ground].wants us to trust it with nuclear power?
Think about it, r-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-ally think about it!
