Iran's Not Civilized!

Reader comment on item: If Not [Arab-Israeli] Peace Now, What?

Submitted by Jonathan Selby (United States), Aug 13, 2008 at 17:07

The European Union (Acting in its new role as the world's supreme authority) has (fortunately) denounced statements by Iranian leaders against Israel as being "unacceptable, damaging and uncivilized". "The EU has called on Iran to stop hostile rhetoric and refrain from all threats towards other states, and members of the international community."Ahmadinejad called Israel a "filthy germ" and "savage beast" established by Western states in their bid to dominate Middle East nations. AMohammad Ali Jafari, commander in Iran's Revolutionary Guard, called Israel a "cancerous germ" which would be wiped out by Hezbollah. Iran does not recognize Israel and Ahmadinejad has often predicted the imminent demise of the Jewish state. Further, Ahmadinejad has voiced hopes for the eradication of Israel from the Middle East- even by shipping it to Europe or Alaska? (What kind of drug does he use?)
