Iran's Insane President....

Iran's crazy President, the unpronounceable Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, suggested that the slaughter of Jews during the holocaust in World War II may not have taken place and that Israel should be moved to Europe.
He said that if Austria and Germany believed Jews were massacred during World War II, then a state of Israel should be established on their soil.
He made these comments at a conference in Mecca hosted by Saudi Arabia designed to promote Islam's more moderate face. Wow, don't invite him to the party next time!

Arab leaders are aghast at his bellicose and wild statements as of late....
One Saudi official compared Ahmadinejad to ousted Iraq president Saddam Hussein and Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, whose renegade statements frequently infuriated other Arab leaders and have targeted the Saudis in particular.

"The Iranian president seems to have lost his direction," said Gilan al-Ghamidi, a prominent commentator in Saudi media. "Iran should be logical if it wants to receive the support of the world. The president didn't score any points. He lost points."

Turkey also denounced the remarks, warning against escalating international tensions and mistrust between nations.
And even some of the hard-line Iranian supporters of this madman are worried...
Even some of Ahmadinejad's allies in Iran were growing disillusioned, fearing that he has hurt the country with his wild rhetoric.

"The president has to choose his words carefully. He can convey his message to the world in better language tone," Hamid Reza Taraqi, a leader of a hard-line party, the Islamic Coalition Society, said.
And of course, Iran is working hard on developing a nuclear bomb and this guy will have his finger on the trigger, a lovely thought! Israel will bomb Iranian nuclear facilities before summer and maybe with the support of others in the Middle-east.

The Iranian madman had also called for "wiping Israel off od the face of the map" recently, and I found this today...
Israel's defence minister Shaul Mofaz on Friday said Israel must prepare solutions "other than diplomatic" in the face of Tehran's persistent advancement of its nuclear programme, Israeli daily Haaretz reports. During a visit to a Tel Aviv market, Mofaz said "the right move would be to let a diplomatic approach guide us, but we must also prepare other solutions."
