Misled? That can only happen if you let yourself lead by the media in the first place, right?

Not even a word about "map"! A word-by-word-translation would read: Khomeini said, that the occupying regime has to disappear from the "arena of time", in other words, that there is no place for it. Please note, although it may sound picky, that Ahmadinedjad never talked about the STATE of Israel, but the REGIME.
Imam [Khomeini] said: 'This regime that is occupying Qods [Jerusalem] must be eliminated from the pages of history.' This sentence is very wise. The issue of Palestine is not an issue on which we can compromise. Is it possible that an [Islamic] front allows another front [i.e. country] to arise in its [own] heart?
From there, it spread all over the media. Each and every single german newspaper I know of picked up that phrase and translated it into "von der Landkarte tilgen" (not just wipe of the map, but even to extinguish), which is even more reminiscent of speeches by some infamous german dictator 60 years ago, to whom Ahmadinedjad is now constantly compared with: Adolf Hitler).
Our dear Imam said that the occupying regime must be wiped off the map and this was a very wise statement. We cannot compromise over the issue of Palestine. Is it possible to create a new front in the heart of an old front.
