"I must announce that the Zionist regime (Israel), with a 60-year record of genocide, plunder, invasion and betrayal is about to die and will soon be erased from the geographical scene," he said.
"Today, the time for the fall of the satanic power of the United States has come and the countdown to the annihilation of the emperor of power and wealth has started."
Ahmadinejad also again expressed his apocalyptic vision that tyranny in the world be abolished by the return to earth of the Mahdi, the 12th imam of Shiite Islam, alongside great religious figures including Jesus Christ.
"With the appearance of the promised saviour... and his companions such as Jesus Christ, tyranny will be soon be eradicated in the world."
I suggest you all read this closely, because this involves every single one of you. The life that you have known since you were born is only a special development stage, and is not the life intended for you. The purpose of this stage is to prepare the human race for a special way of living in a well-organized society of peace and harmony. This message will explain why your creator is absent during this stage, why there is frustration and inconvenience during this stage, and how the completion of this stage will take place.
You must understand that this is only the preparation period, and those that have died in the past are being held in a time-lapsed, limbo stage until the awakening. When you are awakened, you will find yourself in a physical body once again. The only difference between your current body and the one truly intended for you is that your current body is designed to age and perish. Your new body has the same functions as your current body, except that one DOES NOT AGE. Before you can have it though, the teacher needs to know who can be trusted with such a body. The only thing you will be judged on is how you treat others, and nothing else. Like many of you, I have also dealt with the rudest, most selfish, most ignorant, and most hostile-minded people that have lived during this process. Did you think that it would be like this forever? Imagine how this world would be if this current young generation was allowed to raise the next generation. The planet would be a very dangerous place to live. That is what would happen if this planet was left unsupervised for too long. There is no need for that kind of chaos because it is not part of this development stage. The way the world is now was caused by allowing everyone to show their true character. And that is what happens when the teacher is gone. Now she knows exactly how to treat you, by watching the way you treat others. Remember that, and I will see you soon.

The whole "He wants to blow up Israel" myth is just that - a myth. He's not stated that, the source of it being a bad translation that has been cleared up many times

Ordinarily I would agree with you, the whole 'wiped off the map' propaganda myth has been sickening.
