Why we even let the psychopath Ahmadinejad into the country defies imagination. Yeah, yeah, something to do with the UN, but do we even need them here? So here’s the Iranian defense minister telegraphing plans for the destruction of Israel.
Iran’s defense minister said on Thursday that the regime’s forces are now capable of destroying Israel and fulfilling its president’s pledge to wipe the country off the map.
Brig. Gen. Ahmad Vahidi, the defense chief, dismissed Israeli threats to attack Iran’s nuclear sites as a “bluff” during a meeting with reporters.
“The defense capability of the Islamic Iran against threats by the Zionist regime [Israel] has been developed to an extent that will wipe the [Israeli] regime off the scene,” Vahidi was quoted as saying during a visit to a Tehran mosque Sept. 19, the Islamic Republic News Agency reported.
Vahidi said Iran would display new military equipment in the coming week including armored vehicles and naval and air weapons.
Vahidi’s comments echo those made in 2005 by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who said in a speech that Israel “must be wiped off the map.”
So you would think the madman Ahmadinejad would be a pariah in New York City? Think again.
“Ahmadinejad is also set to meet American university students, artists, intellectuals and elites, including Occupy Wall Street anti-capitalist protestors, despite the ongoing efforts made by the pro-Zionist lobbies to prevent direct link between American people and the Iranian president,” the Iranian organ Fars News reports.
Earlier this year American professors gathered in Tehran to discuss the supposed virtues of the Occupy wall Street movement.
If that’s not bad enough, Obama is starting to sound a lot like Ahmadinejad.
