The Iranian leadership

Reader comment on item: After an Israeli Strike on Iran

Submitted by Ken Besig (Israel), Jun 26, 2012 at 06:11

Sometimes the Iranian leadership acts and even speaks as if it is made up of incoherent and irrational apocalyptic Islamic maniacs literally willing to sacrifice the Iranian state and people for just an opportunity to destroy Israel. And then sometimes the very same Iranian leadership acts and speaks as if they are entirely sane and reasonable.

As a Jew, I am convinced that the Iranian leadership which countenances the wild and bloody genocidal vision of destroying Israel are certainly the genuine ones.
