Irans threats are very alarming, and seeing that this isnt his first threat, or the last, I think its silly to think that he isnt planning something to back up his threats. not only has he threatened the "regime" but he has also threatened to blow israel off the face of the map in one big storm..what other kind of storm would remove a whole country besides a nucleur weapon?? I really think something needs to be done, and he needs to not be the president anymore. and I really dont think whoever our next president is will be able to fix the problem we have created. He has is mind set on his apocolyptic view and he claims this will all happen before he dies..and he is over 50 years old. Just a little worrisome.

I suggest you read the link I provided to get a clearer understanding of how things went down. The Brits were there, but walked away before Israel became a Nation once again.
According to IRNA, he made the comments while addressing a group of foreign guests taking part in the ceremony commemorating 19th anniversary of the late Imam Khomeini's demise.
As to the Israel, the Iranian leader said the "criminal regime" which has been plundering the wealth of the oppressed Palestinian nation and has been murdering innocent people in the past 60 years, "has reached its end and will disappear from the scene".
Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday told the visiting political chief of Hamas to keep up the resistance against Israel, warning that abandoning the struggle would lead to disgrace.
"It is evident today that the Zionist regime is at its lowest ebb and is unable to resist the patient Palestinian people," Khamenei was quoted by state radio as telling Meshaal. "Thank God the Palestinian people have stood like a mountain despite the disaster. The only way to the liberation of Palestine is to resist faithfully. "The ones who choose a path that is not one of resistance will pay a price and be disgraced in the eyes of God," he added, according to AFP.

He's not saying anything about destroying the physical entity that is Israel, just that the Israeli regime will be toppled. 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, but not covered in the media as much as it should (or at all).
And lots of folks around the world have serious problems with Israel, mainly lots of human rights groups. And with good reason.

My god man! (?) The inefficiency of your prose... but anyway, absolutley correct. We have an obligation to the Israelis,.
...not to mention, this type of threatening rhetoric is getting old. At least to me.
Also, while the Iraq war may be unpopular, there are concrete reasons for it. Saddam sucked. The Baathists blow. The West is trying to completely eliminate radical Islam. That's no secret and rather than wait for it to come to the West, we've taken the fight to them. I'm grateful. I don't want to have to kill my wife for her violations of Islamic law. I love her and respect her.

“The Zionist regime is dying. The criminals imagine that by holding celebrations ... they can save the Zionist regime from death. They should know that regional nations hate this fake and criminal regime and if the smallest and briefest chance is given to regional nations they will destroy (it).”
(Speech coinciding with President George W. Bush’s visit to Israel on its 60th anniversary, as quoted by Reuters)

Stellar, you really should up your reading comprehension levels before posting.
You are attacking me, although I am NOT choosing sides here.
I said I am not in support of any war against Iran, and I said I am not saying they are right or wrong, just that they are not necessarily innocent bystanders.
As a matter of fact, I even said that AGAIN in a separate post on this thread, just to reiterate. I LOVE IRAN, I LOVE THE US, I DONT WANT THEM TO FIGHT, I AM AGAINST ALL WAR.
There, that better?
Really, this childish side picking crap is annoying.
I don’t think Iran is innocent so I must think that US is in the right and needs to nuke em, is that it?
It takes two dogs of war to tango.
The victim in your blind us vs. them mentality is the TRUTH.
Was that your intent, to set aside the truth in order to propel your anti-US agenda? Cant you just be anti-aggression and see that Iran is not innocent in all this any more than the US is?
We all, every one of us, has blood on our hands and it does not matter who has more blood or less; we need to stop fighting and try to wash it off, both sides.
And so far as your question, one can be an "old testament" and "new testament" kind of guy all at once. If you had any understanding of the Christian faith you would understand that while on the surface it would seem they contradict each other, they are actually complimentary to each other.
One was a preparatory system and a natural and smooth transition can be made between them. One understands that if one reads the WHOLE thing instead of just Leviticus and the gospels.
love you Stellar. Hope you have a good day.
