If Ron Paul is insane, then who is sane?
Doing nothing with the knowledge of our ruin is like suicide.
We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.
- Edward R. Murrow
...I think we have moral obligations to disobey unjust laws, because non-cooperation with evil is as much as a moral obligation as cooperation with good. - MLK Jr.
And Einstein admits he wants no part in something so terrible and frightening as the atom bomb.
also, there is the debate of the translation of these sayings....Kunich and RP argue that the meaning similar to Ahmajinehads wiping Israel off the map, is interpreted incorrectly and that it just means the regime, not the nation.
http://www.jcpa.org/text/ahmadinejad2-words.pdf pretty sure the findings are of zionists/neocons ... I doubt this was an independent query

I've read the original. I don't exactly agree with the revised *true* translation but it is indeed benign compared to the neocon propaganda you posted. The easiest way to tell for a non farsi speaker if some analysis is extremely biased neocon propaganda, is if they do not mention how Khamenei constantly counters Ahmadinezad statements within a few days. He is always going out of his way to clarify and remind the world that he means the zionist leaders, and that Iran will never attack Israel. If that caveat is not even mentioned once it is close to worthless to read.
The ironic thing is in Iran there is a wide circulation of how crazy America is, related to how Christians in America are hoping to bring about the end of the world according to their bible in the book of Revelation, about how they invade countries to bring back Jesus in their twisted insane Christian cult. They quote random ministers, politicians, and translate their rhetoric; sometimes incorrectly, and spout the same type of nonsense. It is why the US is the "great satan", and it is quite funny to see this going both ways, but sadly the general populace in America believes their domestic propaganda more readily.
What you linked there, is no better than linking to an official publication of the Revolutionary Guards for objectivity and truth as to the state of the US government, its Christian cultists, with carefully selected quotes and speeches proving how the Americans are out to destroy Islam and bring back Jesus.

Sorry to give y'all the bad news, but 90% of the Muslim & Arab population in the world has the same goal, the "annihilation" of Israel. I think maybe most people in the world who follow the issue would like to see Israel disappear as well. "Annihilation" is a word that surely is problematic in translation. "Use a non-violent process to get rid of the fascists, apartheid political entity that has stolen Palestinian land from Palestinians" is most likely what he meant.
