Iranian Foreign Minister Calls On Muslims To 'Erase' IsraelTopics: Iran
Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki called on the world's Muslims today to work to "erase" Israel, in the latest of a long string of verbal attacks by Tehran against the Jewish state.
How is it that so many Muslims exist in a state of mind more appropriate for the middle ages than the modern world?
But surely Israel isn't worried. After all, if the American people are so foolishly naive as to elect him, a president B. Hussein Obama will talk to the Iranian leaders and everything will be okay. Israel will not be "erased" or, as Almadinejad has promised, be doomed to disappear like a "stinking corpse" and a "dead rat". Instead, Israel and Iran will simply join hands and sing Kumbaya - and all will be well again.
And if you believe this, please give me a quick shout. My brother's in the real estate business and he's got a great price on the Grand Canyon - if you call now (Cash only, please)!

Ahmadinejad says Israel will soon disappear
"I must announce that the Zionist regime (Israel), with a 60-year record of genocide, plunder, invasion and betrayal is about to die and will soon be erased from the geographical scene," Ahmadinejad said.
Comment: Another Masada?

"Another Masada"? Likely not. More like Iranian-built thermonuclear bombs.
And I do indeed believe in first strike - ours not our enemy's.
It doesn't have to be nuclear, and shouldn't given an opportunity for an alternative. We have the capability, we are indeed going to have to use it. The time will be sooner, not later. None of us want it, but the Islamists are giving the U.S. and Israel no alternative. First they'll come for the Jews, then America.
Does anyone seriously believe otherwise?

Recently ... well, within the last year or so ... I believe Iran held a parade in which a symbolic American flag was presented. The flag resembled our Old Glory, but the star area contained a Star-of-David while the stripes displayed a NAZI swastika.
The youtube presentation resembles the parade to which I referred.
Note the precision with which the Iranian military performs.
I believe the notion that the Jews dominate America is central to the Muslim belief. And, I would say that the same notion resides in the minds of most, if not all, illegal immigrants (La Raza) and Third World nations. To all these less fortunate peoples, the Jews represent the primary evil in the world. They believe that without the avarice of the Jews, the world will be a better place.
Are they wrong?
Whether or not the Muslim are correct in their beliefs, we must concede that Jewish-Americans do appear to reside ... or at least acquire easy access ... to the upper echelons of our society ... mostly financial. And, I do not believe that any parity exists among non-Jews and Jews in our military: non-Jews bleed and Jews get richer.
We just need probe the following concerning non-Jews and Jews in: graduate schools, professions (medical, legal, etc), average income, military service, etc. I believe if we honestly explore this probe, we will discover that the Muslims are not inaccurate in their assumptions. Jews do seem to dominate America.
I believe that it is the Jewish domination of America that riles the Muslims. Muslims hate America, because of the activities ... perceived or actual ... of Jewish businesspeople. Percentage-wise, I believe that an argument exists for Jewish-Americans to get control of their aspirations ... and not default to name-calling and labeling anyone who criticizes them.
Lastly, do I agree on a first strike ... you know I do! And, it has nothing to do with the Jews. We of the West cannot co-exist with Fundamentalist Islam.

I don't know enough about the demographics to judge the accuracy of Harry's assumptions, but would be inclined to agree on the predominance of Jews in the professions. However, as Americans (that is, non-Muslim Americans)we find no fault with their accomplishments. Why Muslims have such a problem with it is beyond me.
On the other hand, why Islam is so focused on hate and violence toward those who don't believe their middle age ideology, is beyond reason in the first place.
