Supreme Iranian ruler Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi-Rafsanjani said last Friday that the Muslim world would win a nuclear exchange with Israel, aggravating fears Tehran’s quest for atomic weapons indeed has one purpose: the annihilation of what it calls the Zionist “cancer.”
“[The] application of an atomic bomb would not leave anything in Israel – but the same thing would just produce damages in the Muslim world,” Hashemi-Rafsanjani was quoted as saying by the government-controlled Iran Press Service.
The spiritual leader, who wields ultimate power in Iran, made the comments during a prayer service in Tehran. It was the first time an Islamic leader of such prominence openly suggested a nuclear attack against the Jewish state, media analysts told the IPS.
Iran’s leaders are “saying very clearly what the Iranians will do if they have a nuclear bomb – they would like to destroy the State of Israel,” Shalom said. Hat tip Right Wing Nuthouse
Speaking to Fox News a day earlier, US President George W. Bush said his administration also views Iran as a true existential threat to the Jewish state.
“I’m concerned about a theocracy that has got little transparency, a country whose president has declared the destruction of Israel as part of their foreign policy, and a country that will not listen to the demands of the free world to get rid of its ambitions to have a nuclear weapon,” Bush told his interviewer.
“I called it part of the ‘axis of evil’ for a reason,” the president added.
However, the most serious punitive diplomatic measure being discussed is Iran’s exclusion from the 2006 World Cup soccer tournament scheduled to take place in Germany next summer.
The Eurabians are CLOWNS. Sad pathetic clowns.
A German Intelligence Service report that says, "Given that the missiles with
longer ranges will be available in the future, and in view of assumed efforts to
provide them with nuclear warheads, Iran will be in a position to reach the
whole of Israel and part of Central Europe." "In plain language," says Bild,

Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Chairman Yuval Steinitz insists the solution lies in the threat of “brute force.”
me too, so why delay? the lefties cry no matter what. It’s up to us to make sure they are free to whine, cry, commit treason, and undermine the country.
Steinitz told CNS News Thursday he recently conveyed to officials in Washington that Iran can be prevented from obtaining nuclear weapons without the use of force, but only if the West is prepared to make it clear to Tehran that it is in fact prepared to use overwhelming military force.
“It’s the only chance [to make them back down],” Steinitz said, warning that “if Iran becomes a nuclear power, it will become a global nuclear superpower.”
But Tehran has been hearing and defying Western threats for years. How the US and Europe could now convince Iran of their seriousness without actually initiating armed hostilities remains unclear.
How about nonexistent? Unclear my ass, NONEXISTENT.
Meanwhile, a report published by the US Army War College this week said neither military nor diplomatic efforts were going to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program.
Entitled “Getting Ready for a Nuclear-Ready Iran”, the report pointed out that “given Iran’s extensive nuclear know-how and capabilities, it is unlikely that the United States or its allies can deny Iran the technical ability to covertly make nuclear weapons.”
The authors instead suggested that Israel try to set an example by first dismantling its nuclear capabilities.
I love this bullshit, Yeah, that’s the ticket, disarm. Oh and while you are disarming hold up the white flag as well. These are the geniuses at US Army War college…….
They admitted, however, that Iran would likely not follow suit, leaving Israel without a deterrent in the crosshairs of a regime with both the desire and the means to annihilate the Jewish state.

massacred during World War II is "scientific", Iran’s foreign ministry has
insisted. While the Israeli president accused the EU of ‘weakness’ towards Iran – Israeli President Moshe Katsav accused the European Union on Sunday of showing "hesitation and weakness" in the face of Iran’s nuclear programme.

accusations came in the reasoning that an Ankara court wrote over the
convictions in July of nine Islamist militants in a long-running case over the

Goss warns Ankara
to be ready for a possible U.S. aerial operation against Iran and
Syria. As people in the U.S. readied
themselves for Christmas, few were aware that CIA Director Porter Goss was in
Ankara, Turkey on Monday, engaged in a meeting that lasted over four hours with
Turkish Intelligence officials. Goss, accompanied by a large delegation, brought
secret data about Iran as he met with officials of the Milli Istihbarat
Teskilati, or MIT. Goss allegedly asked for Turkish support for the Bush
administration’s policies on Iran’s nuclear activities, telling Turkish
officials that Iran has nuclear weapons, a situation that created a huge threat
to Turkey and other countries in the region.Goss said that Iran
sees Turkey as an enemy and will "export its regime," warning Ankara to be ready
for a possible U.S. aerial operation against Iran and Syria.
On Tuesday Goss was
driven in his armored BMW to a meeting with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Additional dialogue reportedly focused on the intelligence data,

OK, all in all, I am aware that Iran doesn’t recognize Israel, and that there is

this from Der

about him otherwise?
Ansari: I think where he really crossed the line
where the domestic audience is concerned is when he said a green aura

This conversation got filmed, and people can watch it on DVD. Ahmadinejad came
home from his speech and told an ayatollah that everyone at the General Assembly
— all these world leaders — didn’t even blink for thirty minutes (out of awe).

Negotiations to deny this certifiable lunatic genocidal weapons

anything about it.
and don’t miss this;
Last month, Ahmadinejad said publicly that the main mission of
the Islamic Revolution is to pave the way for the reappearance of the Twelfth
Imam. As in some versions of fundamentalist Christianity, the second coming will
be accompanied by the usual trials and tribulations, death and destruction.
Iranian journalist Hossein Bastani reported Ahmadinejad saying in official
meetings that the hidden imam will reappear in two years.
So a Holocaust-denying, virulently anti-Semitic, aspiring
genocidist, on the verge of acquiring weapons of the apocalypse, believes that
the end is not only near, but nearer than the next American presidential
election. This kind of man would have, to put it gently, less inhibition about
starting Armageddon than a normal person.
It gets worse. After his speech to the U.N. in September,
Ahmadinejad was caught on videotape telling a cleric that during the speech an
aura, a halo, appeared around his head right on the podium of the General
Assembly. "I felt the atmosphere suddenly change. And for those 27 or 28
minutes, the leaders of the world did not blink… It seemed as if a hand was
holding them there, and it opened their eyes to receive the message from the
