Iran Calls Again For Destruction of Israel

Ahmadinejad represents nuclear terrorism,
Iran, Syria, Hamas and Hitler incarnate.

Tel Aviv -----July 10....... Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called again for all Islam states to “mobilize” to “remove” Israel, which he termed the main problem of the Islamic world.

“The existence of this regime (Israel) will bring nothing but suffering and misery for people in the region and the increase of hatred towards the governments that support it,” Ahmadinejad said in a speech carried live on state television.

Ahmadinejad was addressing a gathering of Iraq’s neighbors called by Tehran to review regional security measures as Iran’s neighbor descends into civil war. The anger of people in the region may soon “lead to a vast explosion that will know no boundaries”, the Iranian head of state said. Western governments should “stop the crimes” of Israel and open the way to a Palestinian government, he said.

Ahmadinejad also warned that Israel's defensive actions against rocket attacks coming from the Gaza Strip could cause an "explosion'" in the Islam world. Arabs have staged only small and sporadic demonstrations and their governments have made few complaints. The Iran president warned Israel's Western allies that Israel's incursion could provoke an angry response from the world's 50-odd Muslim nations. "They should not let things reach a point where an explosion occurs in the Islamic world,'' he said. "If an explosion occurs, then it won't be limited to geographical boundaries. It will also burn all those who created (Israel) over the past 60 years,'' he added, referring to the United States and Israel's other Western allies.

Ahmadinejad spoke at the opening of a two-day Iraq security summit in Tehran, aimed at reviewing security strategies that may bring peace and stability to Iraq and the region. The conference has gathered foreign ministers of Iraq’s neighboring countries, including Syria, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. The 22-member Arab League’s secretary-general, Amr Moussaalso, was scheduled to participate in the meeting.

Much of the international community has repeatedly condemned Iran’s position on Israel, calling Ahmadinejad’s comments dangerous and inflammatory.

Although the Western world has evidence that Iran is attempting to build nuclear weapons, Iran Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Secretary Ali Larijani in an interview with the Swiss DRS television broadcast today said that Iran has declared several times that it is against nuclear weapons.

Israel Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has stated on several occasions that Israel would not tolerate a nuclear-armed Iran and lent support to efforts by the European Union and the United States to persuade Tehran to suspend uranium enrichment.

"Israel will not tolerate nuclear weapons in the hands of Iran. We will not be able to accept such a reality. It is quite obvious why. It's a serious danger not just to the state of Israel. It's a serious danger to the entire world," Olmert said.

Olmert has avoided answering questions on whether Israel would act alone against Iran's nuclear program — as it did in 1981, when Israel warplanes destroyed Iraq's Osirak nuclear facility. Olmert said he hoped recent efforts by European countries and U.S. President George W. Bush "will stop any events that will advance Iran toward the possession of nuclear weapons."

In addition to being a nuclear and chemical weapons threat to Israel, Iran funds and supports Hamas terrorist activity in Israel and abroad. Earlier today, Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashal held a press conference in Damascus broadcast live on al-Jazeera, al-Arabiya, and Syrian state television. During the broadcast, Mashal described kidnapped Israel soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit as a “prisoner of war,” said that prisoner exchange was the only solution to the crisis, and appeared to recommend direct negotiations between Israel and Hamas. The press conference was significant, not only for its content, but because it was held in a Damascus hotel: typically in the past, when Syria-based terrorist organizations took responsibility for operations, they did so from Beirut. The high profile Mashal statement from Damascus suggests that the Asad regime has changed its rules of engagement from tacit to explicit support for Hamas.
