Meanwhile in Iran

10.26.05

In a chorus of “same old, same old”, Iran’s President has called for Israel’s destruction:

“Israel must be wiped off the map,” Ahmadinejad told a conference called “The World without Zionism,” attended by some 3,000 conservative students who chanted “Death to Israel” and “Death to America.”

[ . . . ]

“The Islamic world will not let its historic enemy live in its heartland,” he said.

Ahmadinejad, who took office in August, said Israel would be destroyed by a new wave of Palestinian attacks.

“Surely the new wave of (attacks) in Palestine … will erase this stigma from the Islamic world,” he said.

Tehran denies accusations it trains and arms Palestinian militant groups, saying it only offers moral support.

“Moral” support. Sure. What exactly is “moral” about advocating the murder and slaughter of over 6 million Jews? Maybe we ought to ask Hitler about that one.

What I wonder is what exactly people thought would be going on at a conference entitled “The World Without Zionism”? Chants of Kumbaya around the campfire?

Damian figures that Iran’s nuclear ambitions have a specific purpose. I wonder if Iran would call launching nukes at Tel Aviv “moral support” as well?

Iranians need to reacquaint themselves with their own history. Jews and Iranians/Persians are NOT “historical enemies” at all. Both the Persians and Hebrews of old got along very, very well.

Iran’s leadership now speaks with the voice of their internalised Arab oppressors/colonisers.

So instead of vilifying Israel Iran’s elite should recover “lost memory” and then demand reparations from Saudi Arabia for cultural genocide.

Oh, don’t get your knickers in a knot girl. 3000 people attended this conference. They’re the equivalent of the “venomous” conservative zionists advocating the same be done, not to Palestine, but to Palestinians. Spewing their “inflammatory” rhetoric. All that “viper nest” jazz, etc. blah, blah.

About moral support, the IDF and the terrorist Israeli state get a whole lot of that from the Israeli population, too.

Ho hum.

Persians maybe are not the historical enemies of the Jews. But you have to remember, these particular Persians are looking at Israel and the Jews through the distorting lens of Islam.

Only tre can stoop low enough to find a moral ‘equivalent’ to these hideous troglodytes from the empire of hate!

What’s with the “ho hum” thing, anyway? Is that supposed to be a cutting remark?

Um, yeah. Razor sharp.

Ho hum. Must be the weather. Blah. Or maybe just tired of this debate.

Dan, I don’t think we were there at the same time. I don’t recall meeting Sari, maybe I did, but I would know her if I saw her.

We were there at the same time, give or take. We didn’t exactly run in the same circles. But we have run into one another… I guess I’m just not that memorable to her… (Should I be insulted?) 🙂

Yes, I can see where you might not have “run in the same circles”.
Tre’s POV, however, DOES seem to run around in circles…

I don’t recall too many of the Hillelniks Sari, don’t be offended. Maybe your memory is the one at fault, maybe you just remember me from that pic Josh (forgot his last name, I know, I know, that’s like referring to Ahmed….which one?) took of me at a rally giving him the middle finger. Who knows.
