Ahmadinadinnerjacket: Israel "greatest insult to human dignity and will soon disappear"; threatens Europe too

Just like Adolph Hitler made his intentions very clear in his treatise Mein Kampf, Ahmadinadinnerjacket makes his intentions quite clear in speech after speech. Today, the last Friday of Ramadamadan is al-Quds (Jerusalem) Day in the Muslim world, and Ahmadinadinnerjacket launched another series of threats against Israel. Al-AP reports that he said the following:
"This regime, thanks to God, has lost the reason for its existence," he said.

"Efforts to stabilize this fake (Israeli) regime, by the grace of God, have completely failed... You should believe that this regime is disappearing," continued the Iranian president.

Ahmadinejad went on to call Israel's leaders a "group of terrorists" and threatened any country that supported the Jewish state.

"You imposed a group of terrorists ... on the region," he said, addressing the US and its allies. "It is in your own interest to distance yourself from these criminals... This is an ultimatum. Don't complain tomorrow."

"Nations will take revenge," he told a crowd of thousands gathered at a pro-Palestinian rally in the capital Teheran.

Ahmadinejad then called the UN Security Council and its decisions "illegitimate."
YNet adds some more:
“Thousands of people (Palestinians) have become refuges as a compensation for Holocaust victims, but is the Holocaust real? Why isn’t it allowed to be freely researched?

“Why do the Palestinian people have to pay its price? The Second World War was their (Jews) first excuse and they claimed that 6 million were killed. Their other excuse was that Jews lived on the land 2,500 years ago and therefore the land belongs to them,” he said.


The Iranian president added that he was encouraged by the second Lebanon war and pointed out that “what happened there showed that there is no limit to Islamic resistance.”

Meanwhile, Iranian news agencies reported the same day that the Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi addressed the possibility of an attack on Iran and said, “If Americans and Zionists want to try their luck in Iran, they will experience a larger defeat than in Iraq.”

Safavi added during a memorial service held at his headquarters, “We are obligated to our fallen to maintain the readiness and deal a powerful blow on the enemies in case of an attack.

“The Basij (branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) and the Revolutionary Guards are so strong they will not allow the enemy to even think of launching an operation against Iran,” he said.
Al-Reuters reports that
Ahmadinejad warned Europe on Friday it was stirring up hatred in the Middle East by supporting Israel and said it "may get hurt" if anger in the region boils over.

"You should believe that this regime [Israel] cannot last and has no more benefit to you. What benefit have you got in supporting this regime, except the hatred of the nations?" he said in a speech to mark Quds Day, or Jerusalem Day, when Iranians are officially encouraged to demonstrate in support of the Palestinians.

"We have advised the Europeans that the Americans are far away, but you are the neighbors of the nations in this region. We inform you that the nations are like an ocean that is welling up, and if a storm begins, the dimensions will not stay limited to Palestine, and you may get hurt," he said. The remarks were broadcast on state radio.
DEBKAfile adds: DEBKAfile adds:
These words amounted to an Iranian threat of harm to the European UN forces deployed in Lebanon unless they left forthwith.

His harsh words followed two events: one, the Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert’s statement in Moscow this week after he met with Russian leaders: “They need to fear that something that they do not want to happen will happen. In no case, Olmert stressed, “will we reconcile with nuclear arms in Iranian hands. There is no margin for error here.”

The other event was the arrival in the Persian Gulf of the giant US carrier Iwo Jima with its Expeditionary Strike Group to join the American naval, air and marine might piling up opposite Iran’s shores.

Next week too, the Security Council convenes to discussion a form of sanctions against Iran for refusing to desist from enriching uranium.
Frankly, I don't see the significance of Olmert being in Moscow this week, and Olmert's threat is quite empty given the way he orchestrated the IDF performance in Lebanon this summer. The US buildup is quite significant. Let's hope that George Bush has the guts to pull the trigger. I don't expect it to happen before November 7.
