61. Linda Rivera, what utter drivel.
william ,   England   (10.20.06)
It's precisely that kind of chosen-people guff that gets people's back up. I suppose G-D told Israel it was alright for them to bomb buildings full of women and children in Lebanon and bulldoze innocent families homes in Palestine?
62. 17. HA HA - Your spelling and grammer sucks.
Geography / history lesson: Did you know this? They don't want the Arab people to see how SUPER TINY ISRAEL IS! And for all the hate, sabatoge and terrorism, 22 Arab countries could not defeat TEENY, TINY LITTLE ISRAEL! HA!
63. 17???
Many printing companies are owned by Muslims, so what's your point? Any idiot can pring a map. If this is all you've got, we have nothing to worry about. Israel is the eternal country of the Jewish people. Fact. Period. Good for you that you found a friend with the same map on this Israeli website. What a way to meet! So much in common! LONG LIVE ISRAEL
64. Tell him there are 3XUS battlegroups near Iranian Waters
Alan ,   SA   (10.20.06)
65. #7, Fadi and #17 Samara...both fools
DR ,   Florida, USA   (10.20.06)
You two are pathetic excuses for human beings and bring shame on Muslims all over the world. The fact that you deny reality (Ahmedinajad a man of Peace, and Israel not being on the map) shows how delusional you really are. This is why the only way to put fear inot Muslims is by force. Israel, the US, UK, Germany etc. will eventually have to fight in order to preserve peace on this planet. Radical Islam is ruining the world, you can ask any Muslim here in the US and they'll agree. Pathetic people like you do nothing for man kind, only bring hate, ignorance and therefore, violence.
66. I have to agree with #31
Anonymous ,   USA   (10.20.06)
"How long shall we let this fanatic mad [sic] hide himself under the Palestinian issue alibi?" This is the only statement on this forum that makes sense politically as far as I'm concerned. Call Ahmadinejad what you like, but he is picking up the palestinian issue in order to garner support for his cause, which is hegemony in the Arab world. The palestinian issue is a great cause for him to exploit because it is so volatile and inflames emotions-- (Look at all the enraged comments on this talkback!) --with the added benefit of baiting Israel and the USA.
67. CS, I would neither ignore him nor seek his destruction.
William ,   England   (10.20.06)
My comment reflected my own anger and bewilderment at the childish 'we'll turn your country into a car park' stuff, and very deep 'towel-head' and 'he's just a muslim' comments. At least he's only talking, Israel does have an illegal nuclear weapons programme, and has just tried to bomb one of it's neighbours off the map.
68. Israel and God
Jon ,   Australia   (10.20.06)
Im an Australian and a Christian. The land of israel was given to the people by God himself. If anyone has read the bible, they would know that God will deliever Israel victory over all her enimies. Prepare for the Rapture is near.
69. CS, by the way
william ,   England   (10.20.06)
I'm not suggesting for a second that Ahmadinejad is anything other than a loon - his holocaust denial section is particularly nice. I did say that the idiots were as bad as him, not that the international community should welcome him as an admirable world leader.
70. I am shocked that not one Iranian....
DR ,   Florida, USA   (10.20.06)
has the balls to put a bullet in this man's head. Just like Nazi Germany, the Iranians are a bunch of spineless cowards.
71. # 7 - A Man of Peace??
Tom ,   Old Bridge, USA   (10.20.06)
If he keeps talking the way he is, he will be a man of pieces. How long do you think Israle will listen to his idiotic threats before they nuke that a-hole and his moronic followers?
72. #17 - Your map
Tom ,   old bridge, USA   (10.20.06)
Give me your address. I'll send you a real map, not some ridiculous muslim map. 762 Virgins? Yeah right! Martyr this!
73. Why is this creature so obsessed about Israel?
Keren ,   Sao Paulo   (10.20.06)
What is Israel doing against Iran? What is Israel mixing up in Iranian affairs? What?
74. William - England
Jerry ,   USA   (10.20.06)
Your arguments are non-sequitars. Does Israel have the right to defend itself or not? Be careful how you answer, since jolly old England seems to be head for dour Sharia law. Try really hard to define freedom from oppression and then look about and see whether Jews or Muslims are more likely to lift your freedoms from you. Let's hear your answer. Then we will know who you are!
75. #61 don't kid yourself!
The Chosen ,   USA   (10.20.06)
Many people misunderstand the term "chosen." It does not mean "better than" or "superior to." For the faithful, It means, quite literally , "chosen by God to believe in the One God." It is a matter of interpretation, I guess, and I doubt God would be pleased if he thought his "chosen" people were using it for arrogant reasons, as admittedly many do. In any event, everybody has an opinion for good or ill. Yours lacks a neutral perspective and, therefore, isn't really any loftier. Judging from your remarks, you are obviously just as biased in your political agenda as is Ms. Rivera, so please: Don't kid yourself!
76. William the rain has kept U indoors today.Go Play .
Alan ,   SA   (10.20.06)
77. The beginning of the end.
Dick Eggleston ,   Washington, D.C.   (10.20.06)
Jew, Christian, Islam-talk like this just points to the beginning of the end of religion. Religion has nothing to do with God, it is about humans and power. Faith is where God is, not in a book. ANY BOOK! But here we find people willing to kill for human constructs that have been deified. If God wants me dead, he doesn't need or want you to do it. He'll do it himself. All involved need to stop playing God.
78. help Zorastrians...
Sankar The Indian ,   Rehovot   (10.20.06)
Has nt Iran got problems with its own people, Poverty, Food etc., Why the hell he just thinks of Israel all the time? A country whose cultre has been completely destroyed by the Arab Muslims has become a major hand of Islamic jihad. Look at these people, they praise the invaders and claim to have arab descent which is disgusting. What happened to Zoraster and their faith. The organic indegenous faith of Iran. Israel and US should help the Zorastrians from around the world to form country which is real Iran and not this Islamic menace led by ahmedinijad.
79. William - Iran is your problem too!
CS ,   UK   (10.20.06)
You might be falling into the same trap and wallowing in you own rhetoric! Whilst I agree some of the language is extreme we cant dismiss the underlying and grave situation thats presented. 1. Iran is threatening the existence of Israel. Is that my imagination? 2. Hezbollah their cohorts, attacked Israel and rained thousands of missiles indiscriminately on Israel. Is that my inmagination? The fact is that whilst Ahmadinejad fronts this shady fanatic and despotic regime and is in a frenzied race to arm themselves with nuclear weapons its not only Israel that should be worried but both of us in the UK too!
80. Iranians investments
Dr D ,   Jerusalem   (10.20.06)
The social problems must be terrible after the Iranian government put in so much money in the nuclear , military built up and terror . Is the President of Iran sure that 70.000.000 Iranian are happy about all those sacrifices ?? The simple people also believe in God but will start to have doubts soon in the good faith of their President and things will change there sooner then he believe. The WW II cost 60.000.000 lives, the War against Iran and the terror will cost much more but at the end, after those insane regimes will disappear, the world will follow the path of peace and democracy only this time those neo nazis who will survive will not find safe passage to Argentina.
DACON9   (10.20.06)
I THINK,,NOW THATS JUST ME.... THAT WE SHOULD TALK TO HIM INVITE TO VISIT THE COUNTRY SIDE ,, TAKE A WALK ON THE BEACH.. HAVE SERIOUS DEEP DISCUSSIONS.. COMPARE THE GOOD SIDE OF A DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY.. SHOW HOM REASON AND LOGIC AND LOVE AND WARMTH AND COMPASSION CAN SWAY HIM.... ALSO WE CAN SEND HIM SOME PLANS ON BUILDING NUCLEUR REACTORS... FOR POWER ONLY.. I THINK WE SHOUULD TRY THIS.. ask any liberal ask any normal left side of politics about my will learn tha they will agree.. NOW ..IF THAT DIDNT WORK AND YOU FIND THAT AHMEDINIJIAN BUILT A BOMB ... ATTACKED ISRAEL CAUSED DEATH DESTRUCTION PAIN & HORROR & DEVASTATION...... THEN AND ONLY THEN ... NOT BEFORE... ONLY AFTER HE HAS **PROVEN ** HE WILL NOT COOPERATE.. THEN PUNISH AHMEDINIJIAN... NOT BEFORE ...OK.....? ON MY NEXT POST i will tell you what the punishment should be... i am thinking something like no shipment of underwear for a month.. or no magazines from the USA i'm thinkin' like start slowly.... and you could try to help ISRAEL a little also.. just to show that you are fair and thinking of them.......
82. #31 is right
John ,   USA   (10.20.06)
All the inflammitory talkbacks here are disturbing. As to the issue at hand, this guy is nuts. I have to assume he wants the US and Israel to attack, somehow he thinks that would be good, like the ultimate jihad, God will save him somehow. I feel sorry for the Iranian people, they are supposed to be remarkably open and pro-western if you go there, even pro American. I shudder when I think of how many people will die because of the diatribe of fools like this guy.
83. Worth reading Professor Aumann
Karah T. ,   G.Dan   (10.20.06)
in today's English Haa'retz online.H'mmm....
84. Why
DM ,   USA   (10.20.06)
I understand the Iranian point of view. Who were we to give palestine to others? Unfortunately, no one understands the USA's point of view anymore. We had to leave our continent to end the most destructive war in history. We had to stop Hitler from killing millions of people. Ever wonder why we are the world's "police force". It is because we sure as hell won't let some idiot start World War III. Too bad for us though, everyone seems to be becoming more and more retarted (or at least that is the impression many Americans are getting). We gave the land Isreal is on today to the modern Isrealis as if a parent would split two bickering kids apart. The "muslim" middle-east is very big. Israel is very small compared to the rest of it. Why can't the Palestinians just move around, the area is big enough to accomodate them. Basically, GET OVER IT. Israel is there and if you don't like it, America will not tolerate you. We (with the help of many other brave countries) ended WW2 and will not let idiots start a new one. I just hope that the world comes to its senses before WW3 breaks out. Oh, and I find it funny that the Iranian "Military" thinks they can stop a US invasion. The Iraq war ended in two or three days, and would end about the same in Iran. The 'war' in Iraq that you see today isn't a war, it is a police action. What else do you expect of Americans there when they bend over backwards not to harm people? They get shot at by people hiding in civilian populations.
85. Iran's evil intention
Brod ,   USA   (10.20.06)
The fanatical Islamist-Jihadist regime in Iran seems confident in materializing their evil intention on Israel. With their tentacles in Hamastan in the Southwest, Fatahan in the West and Hizbullah and Syria in the North of Israel, Iran now seems confident that they have Israel cornered. While they are feverishly working on their nukes, it won't be surprising if they have already secretly purchased a nuke from their tentacles in Pakistan to execute their evil plan. Israel and the Free World should not be caught unprepared afterall Ahmedinejad has repeatedly given his warning of vaporizing Israel. And with the recent discovery of multiple tunnels at the border with Egypt where Hamas terrorists have been feverishly smuggling and stockpiling their high tech weaponry, the unrelenting supply of fresh weaponry to Hizbullah from Syria at the Syrian border, and the high state of alert by the Syrian Army at the border with Israel, Iran's evil plan is being prepared right before the very eyes of the world.
Pro-Israel ,   USA   (10.20.06) October 20, 2006, 12:37 PM (GMT+02:00) DEBKAfile reports: The American Iwo Jima Expeditionary Strike Group joins US build-up opposite Iran Tuesday, Oct. 17, the Iwo Jima Expeditionary Strike Group steamed into the Persian Gulf to join the US naval, air and marine concentration piling up opposite Iran’s shores. It consists of the amphibious transport dock USS Nashville, the guided-missile destroyers USS Cole and USS Bulkeley, the guided-missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea, the attack submarine USS Albuquerque, and the dock landing ship USS Whidbey Island. The Iwo Jima group is now cruising 60 km from Kuwait off Iran’s coast. As DEBKAfile and DEBKA-Net-Weekly reported exclusively two weeks ago, three US naval task forces will be in place opposite Iran in the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea by October 21. The other two are the USS Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group and the USS Enterprise Strike Group. Another of his outrageous speeches was delivered Friday to a pro-Palestinian rally marking the Islami Republic’s “al Qods Day” (Jerusalem Liberation Day). In further inflammatory remarks, Ahmadinejad said “the world knows the US and Britain are enemies of the Iranian nation.” He warned European nations not to harm Iran, saying that if anger in the region boiled over, Europe would get hurt because of its support for Israel. “Europe must distance itself from Israel at once. That is Iran’s ultimatum. “He went on to brand the UN Security Council and its decisions “illegitimate.” DEBKAfile adds: These words amounted to an Iranian threat of harm to the European UN forces deployed in Lebanon unless they left forthwith. His harsh words followed two events: one, the Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert’s statement in Moscow this week after he met with Russian leaders: “They need to fear that something that they do not want to happen will happen. In no case, Olmert stressed, “will we reconcile with nuclear arms in Iranian hands. There is no margin for error here.” The other event was the arrival in the Persian Gulf of the giant US carrier Iwo Jima with its Expeditionary Strike Group to join the American naval, air and marine might piling up opposite Iran’s shores.
87. WHO....?
ALAN ,   USA   (10.20.06)
88. England's heading for Sharia law? Blimey.
William ,   England   (10.20.06)
Jerry, it depends very much on where you live doesn't it. If you're living in Palestine I imagine you'd plump for Muslims to free you from oppression. Israel is lucky enough to be militarily in a position to defend itself, those in Palestine don't have that luxury. Which is precisely why potty Islamic fundamentalists like Ahmadinejad get as much support as they do. I feel pretty free from oppression here though, and don't need either Jews or Muslims specifically to 'lift my freedoms', whatever that means. The Chosen - I've read long discussions about what 'chosen' means for Jews before - I just think that Linda's interpretation might be different from yours. I'm perfectly capable of seeing some truth in both sides of the debate, they're all very well rehearsed and we've heard them millions of times before. Don't tell me that your opinions are completely unbiased though. I imagine your sympathies fall on one side or the other too. And yes Alan, it is raining.
89. Israel must act somehow!
Ram ,   London   (10.20.06)
North Korea is helping him. China and Russia are also openly doing so. The rest of the western world is showing no reaction to his threats. Hitler did the same and nobody reacted. We know what the result was. This guy does not mind if millions of muslims die as long as Israel is eliminated. Israel must pre-empt if the world wont stop him.
90. The Monkey did it again. Iran begs to be destroyed
