I just mentioned this countries because they are in the same position as Israel, they do not threaten other countries without reason. Iran is the one
saying that wants Israel out of the map, and the only one to be sanctioned.
Actually the statement that Iran want's to wipe Israel off the map is a mistranslation that just so happens to suit anyone who is Pro Israel and Anti
Iran's Jews reject cash offer to move to Israel
The following correction was printed in the Guardian's Corrections and clarifications column, Saturday July 28 2007
In the article below we reported that last year President Ahmadinejad said (quoting the late Ayatollah Khomeini) that Israel should be "wiped off the
map". A more literal translation of the statement he made in 2005, at The World without Zionism conference in Tehran, is "the regime occupying
Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time".
I see this argument repeated by the Iranian apologist crowd quite often on ATS.
How exactly does "the regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time" and "wiped off the map" differ in this context?
On one hand "wiped off the map" implies the abolition of the modern Israeli state to be replaced by a greater Palestine.
On the other saying that "the regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time" is a more melodramatic reference to the abolition of the
Israeli state to be replaced by a singe Palestinian state.
It means the same thing.
How about Iran stops sponsoring terrorist organisations and quits playing games with a nervous world regarding their "peaceful" nuclear ambitions?
Iran has done their part as well to bring the rhetoric and saber rattling to where it is now, to pretend otherwise is naive or disingenuous.
For the record I believe that diplomacy, not force is the solution to the current quagmire.
