And again: Ahamdinejad threatens Israel

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has once again threatened Israel, calling the Jewish state 'an insect threatening the Iranian nation' (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
"Israel is nothing more than a mosquito which cannot see the broad horizon of the Iranian nation," Ahmadinejad said, addressing a large gathering of the Iranian people in Khorassan Razavi province, Northeastern Iran, on Saturday.

He reiterated that the Zionists accompanied by their western masters have long attempted to impede Iran's progress through ballyhoo and by leveling different accusations against the Iranian nation, but to no avail.

"Our enemies know that if Iran can maintain the same speed in development of the country, it will become a developed country and they will no more be able to challenge us," Ahmadinejad said.
I wonder whether Ahmadinejad has ever heard the story of the Roman Emperor Titus.
According to the Babylonian Talmud (Gittin 56b), an insect flew into Titus's nose and picked at his brain for seven years. He noticed that the sound of a blacksmith hammering caused the ensuing pain to abate, so he paid for blacksmiths to hammer nearby him; however, the effect wore off and the insect resumed its gnawing. When he died, they opened his skull and found the insect had grown to the size of a bird. The Talmud gives this as the cause of his death and interprets it as divine retribution for his wicked actions.
There may be an insect in Ahmadinejad's future. But God willing not as a result of his success in destroying the Jewish state. He will fail at that venture.
