1) That's an often quoted mistranslation.
2) He actually asked for regime change in Israel....which is what the U.S. asked for in Iran. (Pot calling the kettle black?)
3) As president he is not in charge of the Iranian armed forces. So he couldn't attack Israel even if he wanted to.
4) Israel can take care of itself.
5) Our stupid foreign policy has given Iran a new ally in the region....Iraq!

either way, we need to take every leader's words seriously. It doesn't matter if it is President Obama's, Merkel's, or MA's, you have to take what they say seriously. I believe that he has said that he wants to go after the Zionists. I don't trust the guy, that being said, what can we really do to stop them from obtaining a weapon? I mean, honestly?
I do want to make one more quick point and I know I am going to receive a lot of crap for this, but here goes:
For all of those who support Dr. Paul's position on 9/11 and how OBL said on numerous occasions the reason behind the attacks was because ofholy land, Palestine, etc, all I would say is that you cannot be hypocrites about words. You can't sit there and say, "look at what OBL said here...", then when the President of Iran says something that raises eyebrows, just simply ignore it and say "it doesn't matter." You have to take everything anyone of any prominent position says seriously. IF Ahmadinejad said something (which I don't know exactly what he said) that was provocative, then yes...take it seriously and hold them accountable. BTW, holding them accountable doesn't nec. mean war. It means attention, however.
"I am, therefore I'll think" - Ayn Rand
Mistranslated quote aside.
Ahmedinejad has still said this of his own words, mind you - موت لاسرائيل /Māwt-lī Isrāel - easily translated to "Death to Israel" not to a regime or governmental leader, the actual country's name.
Even if I believe letting Israel defend itself is the better option, no one can deny Ahmadinejads intentions toward Israel, as well as whether or not he's just giving lip-service on the matter.
Who cares? Even if I still believe he IS a denier of the holocaust -- he has said much crazier things like people stealing Irans rain or an Octopuss being an evil-such and suchOriginally Posted by dannno
Here's a couple of things:
And here's the ADL site apparently lying about it:
I sometimes get into conversations about this with people and when I inform them that it's a misquote (and one often used by politicians who are aware it's a misquote or at least a questionable translation), the rebuke is often "who cares? the guy's evil and he wants to get rid of israel."
My response to this is always the same: "If Ahmadinejad is such a bad guy, why do you feel the need to rely on a known false quote to demonstrate how bad he is? Don't you have something real to back up your claim that Iran is this huge existential threat?"
Of course, as others here have spoken to, Ahmadinejad certainly isn't a saint, but, I mean hey, I don't like Barack Obama, that doesn't mean I go around making false claims about him that are even more horrible than the truth.
