He's also said, in a WND report, that Islam and its followers must prepare to rule the world, because it is a "universal ideology that leads the world to justice."

Any mention of Israel being bombed scares the shit outta me. Not only because Israel also has nukes(thanks U.S.) but the U.S. obviously have the largest nuclear arsenal out there. This is also somewhat reassuring however. It would be a suicidal action, to attack the U.S. or any of its allies with nukes, because they all hold a majority of the nukes out there. I don't think Iran can possibly hold more than a handful(not literally).

hmmmm, tbh I really don't think so, alot of this sounds strikingly similar to the vague threats employed by the USSR.

Just replace "Islam" with "Socialism" and it might as well be Kruschchev making these remarks.

I like how people just use this "Well they're crazy Muslims so God knows what they'll do! They don't care if they get nuked!" excuse to assume the worst.

Edit: And I finally read that article. From looking at the site, you can tell they're a bunch of right-wing American nut jobs who want to declare war on Iran and are trying to get people riled up.

I don't know which is worse, American redneck fundies or Iranian Muslim ones.

they mentioned this in the report. The Muslims wouldn't care. They think that by killing us when they die they'll be in heaven. So, they'd probably just bomb us so we would bomb us back. They wouldn't care about how many that die. THey're going to heaven, and the ifidels are going to hell. What have htey to worry about?

And you believe that? Hah! The ruling class of Iran is far more concerned with holding on to power in Iran than bombing Jerusalem to please some nutjobs.

The President of Iran is nothing more than a figurehead. He can't make decisions that important without the backing of the religious leadership, who aren't that screwed up yet.

That's the same mindset that appeased Hitler. Any time a leader publically states a desire to committ such evil acts, he must be taken seriously. If he didn't represent the whacko Ayotollah's viewpoints, they wouldn't have let him run. They want to see the destruction of Israel as much as him.

He won a massive 19% of the vote on the first ballot. He ran on a populist platform and has since veered sharply to the right. Mohammed Khatami didn't mirror the Ayatollah's viewpoints exactly, and while they stop Presidential candidates running if they're too progressive, Ahmadinejad is far more reactionary than the previous President was. The ruling clerics may want the state of Israel to vanish, but they know perfectly well that any attempt to make it do so will result in certain destruction.

The sooner they get to paradise to be with their virgins ;)

We're dealing, fundamentally, with a group of radical Muslims here. I don't think you can assign any logic in self preservation to them.

If they really disagreed with him, why wouldn't they pull him, or have him killed? If my puppet leader suddenly started calling for genocide, and I disagreed with him, I sure wouldn't leave him in power.

Because people did vote for him. The state of politics within Iran is complicated, and Ahmadinejad has proven himself to be very skilful at increasing his appeal. Suddenly removing him from office would cause problems for them.


So one should take his threats more seriously, because he could concievably have his way over that of the Ayotollah's.


If they were so crazy and so genuinely dedicated to the destruction of Israel then why haven't they provided Hezbollah with weapons more dangerous than the crappy rockets that they use.


They want to keep them to themselves, for their own use :p Why give them to a ragtag bunch of idiots? Just the fact that they've supplied Hezbollah with plenty of deadly missiles and soldiers shows that they're committed to the destruction of Israel.

Hababi
08-11-2006, 11:22 AM
So why aren't they attacking Israel themselves? For that matter why aren't they opressing Jews in their own country (more than other people are opressed). If Ahmadienjad is the new Hitler then it stands to reason that there would be more Jew opression going on in Iran. The fact is that if Iran were ever in a position to actually achieve the destruction of Israel, then Israel would in turn destroy them. We can talk about whether the US will/should strike Iran's nuclear facilities, but the entire discussion is academic since Israel are not going to let Iran build a nuclear bomb. Iran will not have the ability to destroy Israel.

An Israeli military strike against Iran would be much more difficult than the one against Iraq. For one, it's a longer mission and would involve flying over US bases, which would mean that the US would be endorsing it, which could cause some issues. Not only that, but they're not stupid enough to stick their development in one place; it's scattered and no one knows all the locations. So, you might get some of them, but not all of them. And then Iran would just be more determined to develope nuclear arsenal.

As for why Ahmedinejad isn't supressing Jews, it's coming. Iran is already saturated with anti Jewish propaganda, in literature, cartoons, television, etc. It'd be foolish to simply ignore this and Ahmedinejad's comments.

Again and again this nonsense is repeated. What evidence do you have that they have no interest in self-preservation? Just because they're crazy Muslims does not logically lead to that. Bush think Jesus told him to invade Iraq, but nobody's saying "Oh **** watch out for Bush! He doesn't care if we nuke him!"

They're not brainwashed suicide bombers you know, they're the leaders of an Islamic state, and they know full well that they gain nothing by courting self-destruction. Ahmadinejad is not going to fucking nuke Israel, so you can stop jerking off over that wet dream.

:rolleyes: Like which Historians? Historians that know anything about the current conflict? I doubt it. Hell, historians of all people should know better than to bring up appeasement for any comparision since the reasons for that were very diverse and complex. I don't recall any of us fighting a bloody war against Iran lately, nor do I see any rival country (like the USSR at the time) which we want to use Iran as a buffer for. It's fucking bullshit to evoke any WWII comparision here. Just blatant fearmongering. Don't insult my intelligence like this again please.

EDIT: And there are countless leaders in the Middle East that have stated that they wanted to destroy Israel, it's ****ing boasting. That's what they do in that culture.

No. Jonathan Steele tried way too hard to create the false impression that there had been some deliberate "propaganda distortion". There is little difference between being wiped off the "pages of time" and "wiped off the map" -- there is still the same basic wish for the destruction of Israel. The "must vanish" translation you quoted also happens to be wrong:

"Sohrab Mahdavi, one of Iran's most prominent translators, and Siamak Namazi, managing director of a Tehran consulting firm, who is bilingual, both say 'wipe off' or 'wipe away' is more accurate than 'vanish' because the Persian verb is active and transitive," Bronner writes."

And commentisfree is not really a greet source. It might be run by the Guardian (ahaha), but there are basically no editorial standards.

nowhesingsnowhesobs
08-13-2006, 01:41 PM
I trust first-language Farsi speakers more than an American professor so I'll re-post that quote from the second Steele article:

"Sohrab Mahdavi, one of Iran's most prominent translators, and Siamak Namazi, managing director of a Tehran consulting firm, who is bilingual, both say 'wipe off' or 'wipe away' is more accurate than 'vanish' because the Persian verb is active and transitive," Bronner writes."

The MEMRI translation, which Steele quotes approvingly, is "This regime that is occupying Qods [Jerusalem] must be eliminated from the pages of history".

The MEMRI translation, which Steele quotes approvingly, is "This regime that is occupying Qods [Jerusalem] must be eliminated from the pages of history

There is a great difference between a regime and a country.

dispatch by Reuters confirms 2006-02-21: "The Iranian Foreign Minister Manuchehr Mottaki has [...] repudiated that his state would want the Jewish state Israel 'wiped off the map'. [...] Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had been misunderstood. 'Nobody can erase a country from the map.' Ahmadinejad was not thinking of the state of Israel but of their regime [...]. 'We do not accredit this regime to be legitimate.' [...] Mottaki also accepted that the Holocaust really took place in a way that six million Jews were murdered during the era of National Socialism."

nowhesingsnowhesobs
08-13-2006, 01:58 PM
I think the American professor's view is just as credible. Furthermore, he went as far back the source of the quote which means he is more informed of the meaning that was trying to be conveyed. If the verb is transitive then "vanish" is incorrect.

I'm 19, mine aren't painful but we figured (due to dentist recommendation) it's better to get them out now while it's easier instead of waiting for them to cause lots of problems later.

Your looking at this like they are a sane and logical person.
What the hell reason do you have for thinking otherwise?

If you're going to bring religious fundamentalism into it, I'll remind you that George Bush thinks Jesus tells him what to do, including presumably the starting of two wars, which would make the US viewable as lead by a non-MAD-deterred-madman.

I don't think that's a serious attempt to destroy Israel. If it is, then we have nothing to worry about as Iran's leaders must be utterly incompetent.

I don't think that's a serious attempt to destroy Israel. If it is, then we have nothing to worry about as Iran's leaders must be utterly incompetent.

If I wanted to destroy Israel this is how I would start. And also try to open a second front along the Palestinian borders, and get some warships. But I really don't know much about military strategy.

If this happens is it going to happen US time or Iranian time? Time zones confuse me.

Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani, has said his country is ready to start "serious talks" with six world powers on Wednesday.

Although Iran's chief negotiator has said that Iran is ready for "serious talks", what the members of the Security Council need to know is whether Iran is willing to suspend uranium enrichment by 31 August as demanded by the council, says the BBC News website's world affairs correspondent, Paul Reynolds.

If it is not or gives no clear response on this, the US and its allies will take it as a "no" and will press for sanctions, though these would need a separate council decision.

August 22 came and went (Iran Time) without any nuclear holocaust, apparently.
