Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: “Death to Israel”

Ahmadinejad can claim he only means to encourage a “regime change” in the region of Eretz Israel, that there is no such phrase in Farsi that would approximate the concept of wiping a nation off the map, thus he can hide behind linguistic technicalities. I have been wondering about this myself, though in either case, the man is not sounding too friendly towards the nation of Israel.

There are those who argue this point, but others are quick to point out that though that exact phrase was not uttered, that it was closer to “disappear from the pages of history”, Mr. Ahmadinejad was not using a passive tense, but an active tense, indicating more of an aggressive stance than he will admit to in the American press.

Well, there is no misunderstanding Mr. Ahmadinejad’s words in this video: “Marg bar Israel” or  “death to Israel”. Chas v’Shalom

So for those wondering if Mr. Ahmadinejad or the Iranian mullocracy is such a threat to Israel,  I think the answer is obvious.
