Rational Discourse?

Reader comment on item: America's Crash Course on Islam
in response to reader comment: Ahmadinejad Indoctrination

My dear Mr. Kamran, you seem to desire/ request "rational" discourse.

Webster's Dictionary : ra-tion-al adj. [see RATIO] def.- of or based on reasoning. With this in mind, please view the following:

"This regime (Israel) will one day disappear."

"The Zionist regime will one day disappear."

"The Zionist regime is a rotten, dead tree that will be eliminated by one storm."

"In the case of any unwise move by the fake regime of Israel, Iran's response will be so destructive and quick that this regime [Israel] will regret it's move forever."

The above is extremely micro-cosmic of Ahmadinejad's vitriolic venomous hatred towards Israel (He also calls them 'satan').

If no-one comes up with a DIRECT quote, would you be surprised if Ahmadinejad used any means at his disposal to eliminate Jews in Israel?

Come, let's have rational discorse. Do you KNOW that Israel is less than a quarter of the size of California? Do you KNOW that 70% of Jordan's population is Palistinian? Do you KNOW that Muslims occupy the vast majority of the Middle East? Because of this, can you RATIONALLY deduce that Muslims in the Middle East (collectively speaking, and specifically ones that support the Palistinians) are full of irrational, inherent, rabid greed with regards to Israel? Oh, I forgot who I was talking to. Since the majority of Palistinians are not quoted as wishing Israel "wiped off the face of the map", they must not really be a danger to Israel.

"Israel is doomed to be wiped from the map in a war of destiny." - Ahmadinejad

Sound any different now, Mr. Kamran? -JS
