-Ahmadinejad at it Again–More Anti Israel Rhetoric

by Dr. D ~ August 13th, 2008

image In preparation for a trip to Turkey, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gave the press another anti Israel rant:

"Western countries should not support them (Israel) so much. The life of this regime has come to an end."

"Our position is clear on this issue. A referendum should take place in Palestine. If they withdraw from invaded lands it would be a good step."

The message was obviously intended for the Turks, since they have consistently been a supporter of Israel. Also, the Turkish government has been criticized for inviting Ahmadinejad to visit in the first place.

However, Turkish President Abdullah Gul and Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan have said that his visit was necessary given the current standoff between Iran and the West over Tehran’s nuclear enrichment program. The Turks hope to mediate some kind of settlement on this issue.

Response: There are concerns about Turkey turning away from the West and becoming more Islamic rather than the secular state they have been since WWI.

When Ahmadinejad says that- "The life of the regime (Israel) has come to an end"-one wonders if he is really declaring that he will participate in the destruction of Israel when he has the nuclear power he so craves. Especially since he has said in the past that soon Israel would be ‘wiped off the map’.

Also, he has indicated in past rants that he considers ‘all’ of Israel to be occupied lands–he has suggested in the past that all the Jews should go back to Europe or that maybe USA could give them some land. 

This of course is the real concern of those opposing Iran’s nuclear program. Rants like this just add fuel to the fire. You can bet that the Israelis are watching him very closely and preparing for some kind of response just in case.            *Top
