Rafasanjani and AhamadiNejads comments

Reader comment on item: America's Crash Course on Islam
in response to reader comment: IT MIGHT TAKE TWO

Submitted by Kamran (United States), Sep 13, 2007 at 16:33

"Rafsanjani (the moderate) made two speeches ,some years ago now, wherein he stated 'Iran's intention to use Iran's first nuclear weapons to destroy Israel."

No matter how distasteful Rafasanjani and AhamadiNejad are, none have ever advocated destroying Israel. You can read the mistranslations of selected sentences out of their speeches as much as you like. But it does not change the fact that thye have not made such statements.
