Ahmadinejad spouts Israel ‘will not last long’, but it may be Iran that goes bye bye

September 18, 2009

(ChattahBox) — President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has flapped his gums again at his own nations peril, pretty much saying Israel is a goner if he has his way. He said in a speech broadcast live on state radio on the occasion of Quds Day:

“The pretext (Holocaust) for the creation of the Zionist regime (Israel) is false … It is a lie based on an unprovable and mythical claim,” he told worshippers at Tehran University at the end of an annual anti-Israel “Qods (Jerusalem) Day” rally.

“Confronting the Zionist regime is a national and religious duty.”

“This regime (Israel) will not last long. Do not tie your fate to it … This regime has no future. Its life has come to an end.”
His bold statements come just ahead of his appearance at the United Nations General Assembly next week, and before Tehran attends talks on Oct. 1 with major powers worried about the Islamic Republic’s nuclear strategy.  Whether this rhetoric steels the resolve of the six nations meeting with Iran, i.e. the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany is questionable as Russia and China always tend to waffle on strict sanctions. But with a conservative hard line government in power in Israel feeling threatened, it may be Iran that has no future, if Ahmadinejad doesn’t quickly change his tune.

    One does wonder if Israel is willing to use a combination of deep penetrators and nuclear warheads – which they *do* have – if Iran appears to be close to achieving their obvious aim of posing a nuclear threat in the region.

    My observations, going back as far as the Six Day War, indicate that Iran’s loudmouthed “president” is treading on very thin ice – in August, at noon.

    Wait a minute. In this quote, who added in the words (Holocaust), (Israel), and (Jerusalem)??

    ““The pretext (Holocaust) for the creation of the Zionist regime (Israel) is false … It is a lie based on an unprovable and mythical claim,” he told worshippers at Tehran University at the end of an annual anti-Israel “Qods (Jerusalem) Day” rally.”

    Ahmadinijad NEVER uses the words (Israel) or (Jerusalem). That was added editorially. It looks like (Holocaust) was too. But by who? Certainly not by Ahmadinijad’s translator.

    Somebody assumed that by “pretext for the creation” of Israel, Ahmadinijad was referring to the Holocaust. Why would someone assume that?

    The modern Zionist movement predated the Holocaust by decades, and obviously didn’t use the Holocaust as the pretext for the creation of Israel. Not even close. The traditional pretext for the creation of the modern Israeli State is the biblical story of God giving the land of Israel to the sons of Abraham.

    In fact, I’ve never heard an Israeli claim that the Holocaust was the pretext for the creation of Israel. I’ve always heard that God giving Israel to the Israeli’s was the pretext. So why did someone assume that Ahmadinijad was talking about The Holocaust instead of the biblical story of God giving Israel to the Jewish people?

    This doesn’t make any sense. Is there more in the context of his speech?
