Reader comment on item: The Mystical Menace of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
in response to reader comment: AND THE SILENCE WAS DEAFENING

You know, if I'd have heard "Mahmoud Ahmadinejad hates the Jews and wants to wipe out Israel" from the US media, I would have been a little more sympathetic to Bush's plea to get Iran disarmed. Instead all I hear is how they're a terrorist threat to the US. Considering this article, all Ahmadinejad seems to be saying about us is "If you get in the way, we'll blow you up too". I know Israel is an ally, but Bush trying to force Iran to disarm isn't going to do anything but make them point their weapons at us. If the world is shown what a lunatic this guy is (rather than just being told), it would be much easier to get him to lay off.

As far as FERN SIDMAN is concerned, he's not doing any better than the Palestine's by saying Israel and Palestine were God's gift to Israel. The whole reason they're fighting over there is because they both think their land God's gift to them alone. What a bunch of crap. Don't write an article talking about how bad a guy is talking down Jews, then act like somebody needs to bend over backwards so you can have your way with their territory. God gave it to both of you, and you don't even realize it. Have you ever considered that God made Abraham's wife barren until he conceived with a concubine BECAUSE he wanted to see how the two tribes would work out their differences? Has anybody speculated that maybe this was some kind of a TEST for His people? If both sides can't work out that they BOTH own the land, then neither will look good in God's eyes. God wants you to see past a piece of land and see that you can both co-exist in the same space without hating each other. I'm sure Abraham would have wanted the same thing.
