'Just another terrorist along the border'?

Israeli officials are trying to downplay next week's planned visit by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahamdinejad to southern Lebanon and the border area.
“Lebanon is the primary victim, and if it wants to stop slipping into the jaws of the Iranian crocodile, it – and the moderate Arab world – should raise a strong voice and say this provocateur is not welcome,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Yossi Levy said.


“Israel will not be harmed by the visit,” one Israeli diplomatic official said. “We are not afraid of his visit; he will be just another terrorist in southern Lebanon. It is Lebanon that needs to be concerned, allowing the Iranian Trojan horse into the country. It is their sovereignty that is being chipped away.”

The official added that “there have been greater intellectuals than Ahmadinejad who have thrown rocks at the border, and didn’t do much damage,” a reference to Edward Said, the late Columbia University professor who demonstratively threw rocks at Israeli soldiers from the border in 2000.
Lebanon may be the primary victim of Ahamdinejad's arrival, but if he leaves unharmed, we Israelis will be harmed by losing an opportunity to do something to bring about the end of Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons.

Especially if the Stupid Jews let the Persian Hitler leave unharmed instead of bringing him to justice.

Let them spare us their nauseating hypocritical speeches on Holocaust Remembrance Day about "never again."

Here is an opportunity to make it really mean something, not just talk. Will they measure up to the vow?

I have my doubts. We'll see.

Offing Ahmadinejad would feel good, but it wouldn't end Iran's quest for nuclear weapons.

Wouldn't it be great if Stuxnet could be used to fool Ahmadinejad's plane into landing in Israel instead of Lebanon?
Just imagine Ahmadinejad's face when greeted by a few IDF troopers on the tarmac...
I can dream, can't I?!!!

The thing is the competition to Achmina-nutjob is just as bad as he is, however he is loud and proud about it.

It is a bit easier to muster support against a loud buffoon, than a quiet subtle person who says the right things in the right language. (cf Arafat. Even as he spoke out of both sides of his mouth in different languages). In the long run, this guy is probably a better choice than his alternatives.
