'Wiped off the Map' – The Rumor of the Century

  1. Hmm, I guess Al-Jazeera did not get the memo. Or do you think Al-Jazeera is part of the Zionist conspiracy?

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has openly called for Israel to be wiped off the map.

    "As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map," said Ahmadinejad, referring to Iran's revolutionary leader Ayat Allah Khomeini.

  2. when ahmadinejad warmly embraces the rabbis, it lends credibility to the first poster's link. i seriously doubt the rabbis want to wipe out the israeli population, that is just absurd.

  3. LOL, Ahmadinejad embracing anti-Israel rabbis (all 3 of them) who want Israel off the map is supposed to negate Ahamdenejad's threads reported by Al-Jazeera to wipe Israel off the map, right?

    I knew you were an idiot but I did not expect even you to come up with this kind of lame nonsense.

    PS What part of Al-Jazeera's translation of Ahmadinejad's quote do you not understand?
     
  4. so what does that mean?? these rabbis want israel "off the map" or want israel "wiped off the map"... big difference.
     
  5. jem

    jem

    I am not jewish -- but I know not every jew is a zionist.

    it was also clear to me that many muslims wish to wipe isreal off the map and are willing to see it happen by killing.

    I prefer Isreal be on the map but I much prefer they stay there without any of my tax dollars. It seems to me Israels economy is large enough to fend for itself.

    I suspect the majority of americans would agree with me.
     
  6. these rabbis sound like they are part of the Patriot movement. they also confirm what the first link says.(and then some)

  7. look mate, their prez said what he said, an earlier quote from khomeini, that doesn't seem to be under dispute, the context of the speech etc, the exact wording in farsi and the word for word translation... what else do u need?

    i don't recall hearing ahmadinejad calling for mass-murder of israel's citizens... but for the end to zionism, yes, that i do...

    what is it u find hard to believe? that the media may have chosen a more dramatic "interpretation"? sure, never happens...

    and that Ahmadinejad didn't bother clearing up the "misunderstanding"? well, he wants the zionist regime off the map (to vanish), that much is clear... but that brainless bozos in the West believe he wants them (Israeli) all killed, i don't think he has any control over... just look at how his words got twisted by the media... where does one have to start?... plus it's all part of the mutual provocation game...

    in the end, they'll get their bomb... paranoia won't prevail...
     
  8. he exact wording in farsi and the word for word translation
    Who gives a shit about word for word translations, they are meaningless and if you spoke more than one language you'd know that. I am not an expert on farsi but my uneducated guess would be that "vanishing from the page of time" means pretty much the same thing as "wiping it off the map". I provided you with the Al-Jazeera's not Foxnews translation, they can hardly be accused of trying to dramatize things for Israel's sake.


    well, he wants the zionist regime off the map (to vanish), that much is clear... but that brainless bozos in the West believe he wants them (Israeli) all killed
    Exactly, he wants no jewish state in the middle east, whether you call it Israel of "the zionist regime" is irrelevant. And he's indicated that he is planning to act on it, and the only realistic way to achieve it is to attack and defeat Israel militarily. Nice try splitting hairs though.
     
  9. i speak and/or read/write 8 languages incl 2 asians, 1 african (well, used to...), latin etc... farsi is no big deal... have your "uneducated" guess as u will, i prefer direct sources to "media" regurgitated stuff personally... Al-Jazeera is no less a "media" outlet than Foxnews in case u weren't aware

    he said "zionist", not "jewish"... nice try putting words in people's mouths though
