Iran warns of revenge over Israel
Iran's president has warned that Muslims around the world will take revenge on states who supported Israel against the Palestinians.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad again questioned the extent of the Holocaust, when German Nazis murdered six million Jews.
Israel was founded on "claims about the Holocaust" for which the Palestinians were paying the price, he told a rally.
He was speaking on Jerusalem Day, when there are large demonstrations in Iran in support of the Palestinians.
BBC Tehran correspondent Frances Harrison says the tone of the speech was hardline, even by Mr Ahmadinejad's standards.
Mr Ahmadinejad called Israel's leaders a "group of terrorists" and appeared to threaten any country that supports it.
"You imposed a group of terrorists... on the region. It is in your own interest to distance yourself from these criminals... This is an ultimatum. Don't complain tomorrow."
Mr Ahmadinejad said Israel no longer had any reason to exist and would soon disappear. "This regime, thanks to God, has lost the reason for its existence. Efforts to stabilise this fake regime, by the grace of God, have completely failed."
Mr Ahmadinejad said: "Even if we assume the Holocaust is true, then why should the Palestinians pay the price for it."
He said millions of Israelis should go back to their countries of origin.
Mr Ahmadinejad said Lebanese Hezbollah militants had shattered the myth of Israel's military power, so that "Zionists" in their homes in various corners of the world, could not now enjoy security.

I dont see why Iran and its leaders cannot say this, after all its only the same as what Bush has said, that we will attack any country that attacks us our friends or allies. On issues such as these you cannot have double standards if Iran or any country see others as a threat they have every right to defend themselves, if Israel or the US attacked Iran then that is an act of war and they have aright to defend themselves.
The Palestinians have no effective means to fight Isreal thats why you have constant terrorist attacks against the Israeli's. Israel wont do any thing without the support and backing of the US, that action has made America a legitamate target.
If we want peace in the Middle East then just resettle the Isreali's to America, I mean there's not many of them and it would remove the risk of a nuke war. Why should millions of people die because one small group are threatening the safety of many more. Its not like Israel is the Jewish homeland, they originated in central Europe and it was we theBritish who put them in Palestine after ww2. We knew then this would cause trouble for the future.

"Israel committing Genocide" where? do you even understand what the word means? Where are these camps where jews exterminating Arabs on an industrial scale?
Funnily enough jews are charactarised and demonised in the Arab press EXACTLY the same way as they were in Hitlers Germany.........
The Israeli Defence Ministry will appeal against a supreme court ruling banning the use of Palestinian human shields in raids, officials said.
Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz is prepared to make a personal appearance in court to defend the practice, ministry officials added.
The case was brought more than three years ago by human rights organisations that said the army routinely forced Palestinian civilians into dangerous situations as a means to protect soldiers. Some of the most common methods were to force Palestinians into buildings to see if they were booby-trapped, or to enter the hideouts of wanted men and tell them to surrender. Soldiers also forced civilians to stand in front of them when on patrol.
At least one human shield was killed, and others have been wounded. Nidal Daraghmeh, a 19-year-old Palestinian student, was shot dead after troops forced him to knock on the door of a wanted Hamas fugitive and shooting broke out.

Yet the land Israel is occupying is illegal why?

It's not illegal, the World community has approved Jewish people to establish a Jewish State.
In my opinion, Jews should have had the possibility to either stay in Europe - or anywhere else - or move to Palestine (which many Jews already did before WW II), not to establish a state on Palestinian soil just because their ancestors used to live there, that's an unjustifiable claim. Colonial powers neither can claim back overseas territories because their ancestors used to live there.

Damn right its wrong.
They have no right to be even moving 1 square mm off there 1948 land.
Thats what they were given, if the neighbors dont like you... you have to handle the issue and stand up for YOUR piece of land.
If you ever take theirs, they will do the exact same in return.
