Iran's Supreme Leader Promises Israel's Destruction
Iran's Supreme Leader says Israel will soon be destroyed. Move along, EU, UN and Obama administration. Nothing to see here. From AP:
Iran's supreme leader predicted the destruction of Israel in comments posted on his Web site on Wednesday, in some of his strongest remarks in years about the Jewish state.
In the past, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called Israel a "cancerous tumour" that must be wiped from the map, but the new comments mark the first time in years he has openly speculated about Israel's demise.
"Definitely, the day will come when nations of the region will witness the destruction of the Zionist regime," Khamenei was quoted as saying. "How soon or late (Israel's demise) will happen depends on how Islamic countries and Muslim nations approach the issue." He did not elaborate.
Khamenei, who made the comments during a meeting with the Mauritanian president on Tuesday, also accused Israel of trying to destroy the Palestinians "through continued pressure, blockades and genocide." He said the Jewish state will not succeed.
Meanwhile, President Obama once again refers to the "Islamic Republic of Iran" in his SOTU speech last night, which oinly lends the regime legitimacy and discourages the untold thousands of brave Iranian protestors who are actively working to overthrow these scoundrels. You have to think that Ahmadenijad and co. are feeling pretty confident about their chances right now.
