Peres: Ahmadinejad worships bomb over God

Israeli President Shimon Peres, in a radio interview on Monday, called Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a "Joke" And said he appeared to worship "the bomb more than he's worshipping the God in heaven".


Nobel peace laureate Peres told US National Public Radio in Jerusalem that a united front by the international community could stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. Ahmadinejad has said Israel should be "wiped off the map" and recently forecast the destruction of the Jewish state. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said recently that a country with such an attitude must never be allowed to develop
