i know what he said but the correct translation is this:
According to Juan Cole, a University of Michigan Professor of Modern Middle East and South Asian History, Ahmadinejad's statement should be
The Imam said that this regime occupying Jerusalem (een rezhim-e eshghalgar-e qods) must [vanish from] the page of time (bayad az safheh-ye ruzgar
Norouzi's translation is identical. According to Cole, "Ahmadinejad did not say he was going to 'wipe Israel off the map' because no such
idiom exists in Persian". Instead, "He did say he hoped its regime, i.e., a Jewish-Zionist state occupying Jerusalem, would collapse."
saying that he wants to kill all the jews is blatent propaganda. he made that speech at the world without zionism confrenece and he was speaking of
the political ideology of zionism.
there is no connection between the polticial ideology of zionism and being a member of the jewish race. that speech has been twisted for propaganda
israel has a multitude of nukes. even if iran had just as many they would not nuke israel. it would be suicide. but it would mean israel would have to
treat its neighbors with respect for once. and the zionists simply wont have that, and they are making us go to war for them. cowardly craps.
but no one cares about these details... all they want to do is say :
"oooga ooga, me want war, isreal good, iran bad, bomb good, death good oooga ooga."
