2. Rouhani transforms duplicity into an art form.
Steve ,   Wales   (09.26.13)
It was no coincidence that a dozen officials from Iran's controversial ballistic missiles programme were present in North Korea last year, to witness a launch of a long range ballistic missile by North Korea, which took place to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of North Korea's founder. It was also no coincidence that just prior to attending the UN General Assembly this week, new Iranian President Hassan Rouhani took part in Iran's military parade, which included trucks carrying Shahab-3 missiles and signs calling for the destruction of Israel. It is perhaps just coincidence that the mainstream media intent upon portraying the Iranian regime and Mr. Rouhani as moderates, decide to ignore the above. Some interesting headlines pertaining to Iran, its religious rulers and the nuclear issue, all of which can be accessed via basic internet searches. "Iranian general: Israel must be destroyed". "Iran committed to 'full annihilation of Israel,' says top Iranian military commander" "Ayatollah: Kill all Jews, annihilate Israel" "Iran's nuclear program designed to 'finish off' Israel, Hezbollah MP says". "Report of New Iranian Nuclear Work Backs Up Israel's Claims".
3. Speaking with a forked tongue.
Jane ,   UK   (09.26.13)
How Israel's enemies constantly push for a defenceless Jewish state in the face of the surrounding Islamist hordes intent upon Israel's destruction. Every ploy under the sun is used to rob Israel of its perceived nuclear deterrent, and to simultaneously force the Jewish state to cede more territory to its enemies so that it has borders indefensible by conventional means. It irks such people that Israel is both willing and capable of defending itself against those who have repeatedly invaded with a view to Israel's destruction, and against those who constantly seek every opportunity to further such goals to this very day.
4. Different leopard, same spots.
Doug ,   Great Britain   (09.26.13)
"Iran has never sought and will never seek nuclear weapons," President Hasan Rouhani 2013 "If one day, the Islamic world is also equipped with weapons ..the use of even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will destroy everything. However, it will only harm the Islamic world. It is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality." Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, 2001
5. This is starting to sound like a Danny Kaye comedy farce !
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (09.26.13)
6. Dear Rouhani
Kaftzani Capcarici ,   Too near to mention   (09.26.13)
You made me LAUGH! Ahmedinejad was a dry bearded, ugly, cursing, threatening and impolite monkey. You on the other hand wear a Tourban and your beard is groomed and carry a strange, irresistible Persian sense of "humor", hiding the traditional vicious Shia violence, racism and cruelty - did I miss anything? Who knows: maybe Obama could even KISS you - slight shudder. The answer to your suggestion is: Israel will be happy to do what you suggest, as soon as Islam is not part of any present and future Persian DEMOCRATIC government. Deal? No? Thought so.
7. Israel must do nothing. Israel has stated time and again...
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (09.26.13)
...that it will not be the one to introduce nuclear weapons to the region, and has kept its commitment to do so. It is time Iran acted as responsible as Israel has, all of these years, and cleansed its facilities from any agent and equipment that is designed to serve the production of nuclear weapons. And, it is high time the international community demanded it of Iran; the very country that has been fooling the international community so far.
8. Iran is' desperate
Claude ,   London GB   (09.26.13)
Now he is asking for a country he does not recognise, does not believe should exist , to join an international body for nation states. The mad mullah is just a little confused. Actually he is desperate for anything that can save the Iranian regime and Supreme leaders from economic catastrophe How ironic all the anti Israel, anti US anti Zionist, anti Semetic rhetoric may have to be dumped to secure the survival of the regime. The recent ever so slightly moderated language from Rohani is evidence of this. Regimes desperate to survive will do anything including sup with the devil ( satan in Irans case ) Well no one will miss them when they end up in the gutter of history, but I will miss their camp head gear
9. Stalling for more time, 5 years now
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (09.26.13)
10. Israel will give them up under the following conditions
k ,   US   (09.26.13)
If there is a sustained peace in the area for at least 100 years, and any attack against Israel or any attack against any Jew in the world will push it back for 100 years Or if the world is going to Isolate Israel and force them to give it up, that is when the Jews and the Israelis should use their "Samson Option"
11. evil demands lights off......Iran
Calabi ,   Sydney Aust   (09.26.13)
A nation runs like an organize gangs, attack those who do not believe in what they believe. Jail and killed those do not worship allah, jail and threaten death on Christians pastors who reject islam! On one hand call for the destruction of Israel while trying to unite global islamic block lusting for power and control of M/E. Streets gang trying to be a scholar on the world stage. Like a typical muslim selling hatred to an Asian blaming USA for bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. GOD bless Israel

30. Anton and american from Istanbul
David Israel ,   New York, USA   (09.26.13)
Ruhani does not have any point. Israel never threatened any other nation but Ruhani's predecessor threatened Israel many times saying that he would wipe out Israel from the map. For Israel Nuclear capability is only a deterrent. After all Israel just about the size of Konya or New Jersey with a population about 7 million and surrounded with 100 million Muslims hostile to them. They must know that if they use force to wipe Israel of the map and they can succeed Israel will take them down together. This maybe can deter them.
