Ahmadinejad: World forces must annihilate Israel

This piece appears in Jerusalem post.
I am a supporter of Israel, but not the unjust policies of Israeli government. The policies are dangerous to security (not defense) of Israel and tarnish the character of Jewish nation.  I have written over 25 pieces on the topic, please visit www.IsraelpalestineDialogue.com

As peace makers, we should listen carefully. The biggest mistake the hard liners among the right wing Muslims, Jews, Christians and Hindus make is simple; they don't listen.

They jump to conclusions and mess up the world. This is what Ahmadinejad said in the same paper and they had the gall to mis-write the heading, "Anyone who loves freedom and justice must strive for the annihilation of the Zionist regime in order to pave the way for world justice and freedom.”|

Criticizing Zionism is not criticizing Israel, Judaism or Jews.  It is downright stupid to call “annihilate Israel” when it was “regime change”.  I do hope the prominent Jews condemn this non-sense.

Nearly half of Israel wants Netanyahu regime gone, it is not annihilation of Israel or Jews, and it is the regime! The same dudes have the ability to distinguish between Republican and Democrat regimes in America.  The late Prime Minister Menachem Begin wanted a regime change when Carter was the President, as Americans we did not look that as Anti-American.
Not all Israelis are enamored with Netanyahu, there are Jewish organizations against the regime, indeed, and there are Rabbis against Zionism.

We should not spread falsities; it is not good for Israel, Jews, Iranians, Americans, Palestinians or any one.

  1. He keeps saying that over, and over, and over again. I think the Ayatollah Khomeini was more realistic, when he said the war with Iraq will gone until Saddam Hussein is overthrown. It was not Iran, but the United States that overthrew Saddam Hussein. Has Ahmadinejad forget the 8-1/2 war with Iraq?
