Iran helps out the peace process

TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's hard-line president called for Israel to be "wiped off the map" and said a new wave of Palestinian attacks will destroy the Jewish state, state-run media reported Wednesday.
Oh dear. We really are going to have a war with this lot eventually, aren't we?

V!

At least one person was said to be in critical condition and five others sustained serious wounds.
I'm an atheist but at this time I pray almighty God to save their lives.

Three people were killed and five were lightly wounded Wednesday afternoon when a blast ripped through an apartment building in south Tel Aviv, which police said was caused by several kilograms of explosive materials.
Is there any connection between a statement by Iranian president and these terror acts?

Have the Iranians not been saying exaxtly this for the last 26 years. IIRC they have have something similar to Orwell's "half-hour hate" every Friday.

Why can't these Islamic countries just learn to behave like civilised human beings? Iran should get what is coming to it, a bit of Western re-education in decent behaviour!. Though I'm not sure we could afford to engage in another war, my TA battalion is starting to run out of people to deploy to hot sandy places.

Why don't we just use our Trident before they go out of date? By the time the middle east is re-populated we will be using starships to visit the distant galaxies, I have little doubt that the Iranian government would use them on us.

Curious... this has only just arrived on the BBC and it's the reaction, not the original speech that's newsworthy there. It's a pleasant change to see our government adopting some kind of stance on this matter rather than muttering about respecting Iranian diversity and smiling as if the Iranian president was a reasonable person.

There's an article in todays Torygraph about the comedian Omid Djelali (sp?) who happens to be of Iranian extraction. He claims that one of the mjaor Iranian traits is doing or saying things because they feel like it and without giving any thought to the consequences...

I believe he's the one who gets grabbed by the nuts by Ollie Read in Gladiator for selling him queer giraffes.

I guess that the Iranians have been bolstered by declarations of support from countries like Russia, Lebanon, Syria and China.

I think that they know that the nuclear issue is heading for some sort of show down so they are playing to the Islamic wider crowd. As the Iranians were in Lebanon and Syria at the weekend suring up support. They even (after they had got the petals and rice out of their hair) had time to issue a rather ironic joint declaration with the Lebanese calling on the world to pressurise Israel into giving up its WMDs. WMD declaration

So who knows what, if anything, the Iranians are planning :?

You'd almost think that he was trying to encourage the Israelis to bomb the nuclear facilities before they go on line, wouldn't you?
Perhaps he is!

Could it be that he want's the isrealis to start the war?

An excuse to wipe the zionists from the face of the earth and be seen as the new protector of all that is Islamic 8O

Iran launched its first satellite into space from Plesetsk in northern Russia on Thursday...
...
$15m research satellite would contain a telecommunications system and cameras that would be used for monitoring Iran's agriculture and natural resources.
Yes, of course, it is all about agriculture...

Maybe he is for a different reason.

They can't get the damn thing to work and rather than lose face they are trying to get the Israelis to bomb it flat.

Gives them a really good "out" with the bonus of being able to jump up and down and shout a lot.
