Wow. I didn’t expect this, I was always under the assumption that the people of Iran were not in support of the extremist government. Maybe this event was staged? Either way, not a proud time for Iran.


CNN.com reports:



(CNN) -- Thousands of Iranians staged anti-Israel protests across the country Friday and repeated calls by their ultraconservative president demanding the Jewish state's destruction.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was among the protesters as Iranian officials tried to play down his comments.

Ahmadinejad made his comments Wednesday during a meeting with protesting students at Iran's Interior Ministry.

He quoted a remark from Ayatollah Khomeini, founder of Iran's Islamic revolution, that Israel "must be wiped out from the map of the world."


He actually marched with the thousands of protesters. That eases the situation? Mmmm…

I think the Mods should warn Iran for baiting...

He might be an Ugly Monkey - but he is also a Determined one...



The Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, refused today to retract his call for Israel to be wiped off the map, while the Iranian embassy in Moscow attempted to calm the growing diplomatic crisis.

The Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, refused today to retract his call for Israel to be wiped off the map, while the Iranian embassy in Moscow attempted to calm the growing diplomatic crisis.
Mr Ahmadinejad appeared at an anti-Israeli rally attended by thousands of Iranians in Tehran and rejected the international condemnation of his comments as "invalid".

"My words were the Iranian nation's words. Westerners are free to comment, but their reactions are invalid," he said.

The Iranian embassy in Moscow earlier attempted to pull back from his declaration after the UN secretary general, Kofi Annan, became the latest world leader to rebuke him. A statement released by the embassy said Mr Ahmadinejad "did not have any intention to speak up in such sharp terms and enter into a conflict".

On the other hand, we have Isreal - a Dog that does not Bark, just Bites.

A cat that purrs.

Demonstrations are not enough reason to go to war. Neither are stupid statements. Let's not forget this.

if you look hard enough there is actually a similarity between Bush and Ahmadinejad's monkey likeness. Maybe David Icke's theory is a bit off

Somtimes the media and government don't need to brainwash its sheeple, they govern themselves. This is a perfect example - feed them one news story and it grows and grows and...

Those demonstrations are being held as part of annual Al-Quds- Day Day protests (Al-Quds = arab for Jerushalayim) , which were first held in 1979 after Shiite Muslim clerics took power in Iran.

TV showed Ahmadinejad surrounded by tens of thousands of protesters, many holding banners carrying slogans including "Death to Israel, death to America" and caricatures of U.S. President George Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, British Prime Minister Tony Blair and PM Ariel Sharon.

NR, please keep to the topic, personal remarks are construed as baiting and are against the TOS.

You have yet to comment on the topic.

Heh. You ain't going home.

But what does annoy me is why the Iranian people voted this plank in. OK, election choices weren't up to much, but as you said, this guy has no brains. In a time when Iran needs a good diplomat in the driving seat, why put someone with such a flimsy grasp of international politics as your main vocalist? Sure, what he said was probably more for domestic consumption than anything else, but even he must have been aware that now was not exactly a good time to say it.
I've heard that even the boys upstairs are getting a bit twitchy about his behaviour and that they're thinking about taking foriegn policy out of his hands and handing over more power to Rafsanjani. The problem is, that even though the West feel they can deal with the former president, the media is going to be concentrating on what is coming out of the monkey's mouth. At the moment, Western public opinion is floating around Iraq, but if this guy keeps spouting off, he's going to attract some unwelcome attention right when Tehran doesn't need it.

The Guardian Council must be kicking themselves for letting Ahmadinejad get voted in. I can't see any way in which he is an advantage to Iran. Not unless they have some plan to use him as a pawn. But they'll have to be quick - this dude is going to attract every radical in the country around him. If the Guardian Council aren't careful they could end up having a loose cannon rumbling around as he attracts more support.

What is your point? That the Iranian people are anti-semetic. Please post proof that the whole nation of Iran are anti-semetic. Cheers.

Well what did U all expect. That they will be calm watching everything that goes on? Also done forget there is a good chanse they will be bombed again from Israel? The message they are sending is "we will fight fire with fire" which a lot of ATS members prefer. And they are preparing people for that.

The only interesting thing is will Israel or USA dare to bomb their reactor and if yes/ will Iran go to war allied with some friends like Siria.

Anti-semetic, anti-zionist, anti-Israeli. What's the difference? Don't turn this thread into trash just because of the semantics of a word.
Although I don't believe that the whole Iranian population is anti-semetic per se, it is the argument that Ahmadinejad is using to defend his case.

news.bbc.co.uk...

"Mr Ahmadinejad said: "My words were the Iranian nation's words."


As Ahmadinejad is calling for the destruction of Israel and as the people in Israel are Jewish and as Ahmadinejad uses Islam in his rhetoric just how exactly can it be construed as anything else?

Personally, I don't believe this dork speaks for the whole Iranian nation, but it can easily be construed that he does if you don't know how Iranian politics work.

This has been happening a very long time dating back to the Isalmic revolution. The only reason the media is taking interesting is because their President supports it
