That's just it. Iran never said they wanted to wipe Israel from the map.
Forget it pal. Fox news said it, it has to be true, it doesn't matter how many times people post a DIRECT farsi to english translation, showing the
exact wording, as well as the fact that it was a quote from another, far older, speech. It simply doesn't matter. no one is listening. the war
drums are too loud.
See I love it, "the rhetoric" what rhetoric?
When they say they will defend themselves if attacked? Because that's all they've said.
Is it when they attempted to bend over backwards with relation to uranium enrichment, even willing to send it off to a neutral 3rd party for
enrichment and the US questioned the sincerity of the offer?
Or maybe, just maybe, it's when they called a spade a spade, and had the audacity to suggest, that maybe, just maybe, Israel has a hand in a lot of
the unrest in the region, Israel is the country destabilizing the region, and that if they continue along the current path, will simply not stand the
test of time.
The road Israel is on right now is a dead end, if you can't see that, you are completely blinded.
See, that's what this is about. It's not about oil, there is plenty of oil just here in north America to keep us all going for a few hundred years.
It's not about protecting "us" from "them". They haven't attacked anyone, they haven't invaded anyone, and most importantly, the actual
government of Iran (not the fanatical clerics and crap) has never threatened anyone.
But they refuse to toe the line when it comes to Israel. They refuse to sugar coat what they see as truth. That Israel is constantly provoking
conflict in the region. Israel is constantly and flagrantly ignoring international law. It is Israel that is constantly grabbing up more and more
land in the area.
Even if you support Israel 100%, you can't be so thick as to see that this can not continue. You can not antagonize all of our neighbors, you can't
oppress a people with racist policies, and expect it to work forever. Israel is doomed, Iran knows this, and said it.
For those of you who didn't bother to check that statement.... He said the zionist regime occupying the land (Israel) would fade with the sands of
time. (or to that effect). Fact remains, he never said wiped, never said map, and unless you read the american translation, said nothing at all that
could be taken out of context.
Hell, that single event has been thoroughly debunked here at ats.
