Iran Amps Up Its Genocidal Rhetoric

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad continues to push his country towards a seemingly inevitable showdown with the West. In a speech posted yesterday on his website, Ahmadinejad contended that the ultimate goal of world forces should be the annihilation of Israel. The speech was aimed at the ambassadors of Islamic countries ahead of “Quds Day,” also known as “Jerusalem Day,” an annual Iranian anti-Zionist event established in 1979 by Ayatollah Khomeini. Quds Day falls on August 17th. The Iranian leader illuminated its significance. “Qods Day is not merely a strategic solution for the Palestinian problem, as it is to be viewed as a key for solving the world problems,” he said. “Anyone who loves freedom and justice must strive for the annihilation of the Zionist regime in order to pave the way for world justice and freedom.”

Expressing many of the all-too-familiar anti-Semitic slanders, he accused “Zionists” of being “behind the scene of the world’s main powers, media, monetary and banking centers.” With a nod towards the American presidential election, the Iranian leader also labeled Jews as “the decision makers, to the extent that the presidential election hopefuls must go and kiss the feet of the Zionists to ensure their election victory.” He further claimed that a “horrible Zionist current” has been managing world affairs for “about 400 years.”

He lashed out  at Europe as well. “Zionism is the modern times plight of the human society and when we meet the European politicians they say speak transparently about everything, but they refrain from talking about the Zionist regime, which proves that Israel is the axis of unity of the world hegemonic powers,” he said.

The attack comes on the heels of the latest round of sanctions imposed by Western nations attempting to persuade the Islamic Republic to abandon its nuclear development program. Iran continues to claim it is intended for peaceful purposes, but the West rightly fears it is about making atomic weapons that would inevitably be used against Israel.

The effectiveness of the sanctions remains controversial. There are reports that the sanctions are crippling Iran’s economy in the short term, producing runaway inflation and high unemployment. Yet as recently as Tuesday, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta was forced to admit that Iran hasn’t reined in its  nuclear program, even as he repeated the increasingly tiresome rhetoric about the Islamic Republic’s “willingness” to negotiate–again.

The House and Senate are currently working to reconcile the latest round of purportedly “crippling” sanctions before breaking for recess at the end of the week. The aim is to close several loopholes by expanding the list of Iranian entities subject to sanctions. The Obama administration is also being asked to impose penalties on foreign companies doing business with Iranian energy and financial companies. Yet as reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Iranians “are pros when it comes to creating hundreds of new front companies to replace those on the sanctions’ list.” They further note that despite congressional requests, the administration is “waging a behind-the-scenes campaign to water down existing sanctions by granting nearly every available waiver to countries that continue to buy Iranian oil.”

Proponents of tougher sanctions, such as Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) Rep. Robert Dold, (R-IL), and Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), insist there is a better way. They have called for a blacklist of Iran’s entire energy sector, labeling it a “zone of proliferation concern.” Lawmakers have also pushed for sanctions on the directors and shareholders of organizations like the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications  (SWIFT), the Belgian bank consortium that provides financial communications and clearing systems for the Central Bank of Iran. The administration is against the move, claiming individual banks would take SWIFT’s place. But as the Journal notes, it is unlikely too many banks would be willing to cut themselves off from the international finance system in order to “place themselves in a basket of outlaw or shady banks.”

    Ahmadinejad is right. There's a jew in every woodpile. The world would be a lot better without Israel, which the Iranian President correctly characterized as a "stinking corpse."

    I have a recurring dream that Ahmadinejad bends over to tie his shoelace and cops and Israeli nuke right up his clacker. This wannabe *itler deserves no less.

    • Kufar Dawg

      Yes if the muslo-nazis want nukes why not give them some? Say from 54,000 feet and in 5 kiloton yields.

    I believe that the Iranian nuclear dumps will not be immediately visited. The islamic cult of death should anyway continue to pile on them all the concrete, plate steel and rocks they have… All that is being done by the clergy… there and also most of the air defenses are concentrated at those sites.
    Easy pickings otherwise… The warnings to the deranged psychopaths could not have been clearer. That includes everyone in that side of the line, everyone…

  • ★FALCON★

    Why didn't Obama arrest his fellow grifter in murder – Ahmadinejad – when he stepped off the plane in New York for the hostage crisis in 1979?

    Why has Mr. Obama sabotaged Israel's attempt to destory Iran's nuclear program by releasing classified materials (stuxnet, Flame, DUQU and Stars)? Even Diane Feinstein admitted it came from the White House, and probably through Valerie Jarrett.

    Why is Mr. Obama stabbing Israel in the back after proclaiming – I have Israel's back?

    Why is Mr. Obama removing dictatorships in favor of the statist fascist totalitarian al-Qaida Islamic Brotherhood surrounding Israel? How is that supporting Israel?

    Why doesn't Mr. Obama admit that he is infact a muslim with alliances steeped in deceit to all who cross his path, especially infidals, read – Christians and Jews.

    • Pacifist1

      Why not just call him a Marxist?… because it means the same thing as a radical Muslim,…without Marxism, he will not be able to use the Muslim card…I am not a Republican, but if I was, that's what I would do.

      Or, a half Muslim, because that is more accurate; and most will interpret that as being Muslim, anyways, without defaming Islam.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

        Obama is a marxist of muslim heritage.

        The way he handed libya to al qaida as a safe haven with oil revenue to fund the growing terror in Africa proved it.

  • dave742

    Here is what Ahmadinejad really said:

    "[Ahmadinejad] noted that people around the world have the right to enjoy justice, respect and freedom with no discrimination and exception, urging all freedom-seeking and justice-seeking nations to adopt a measure to rout the epitome of the Zionist hegemony, with the final purpose of establishing justice and freedom across the globe."

    presstv.ir/detail/2012/08/02/253995/nations-must-unite-against-zionism/

    Ahmadinejad believes that justice-seeking nations should not allow Zionists to run world affairs any more, and that instead justice and peace should prevail.

    Sometimes it helps to find out what the quote was before the Jewish media "edits" it.

    Do you like being lied to?

    • Larry

      You obviously do by pushing the cite at us.

      • dave742

        Please explain how I am lying, and what does "pushing the cite at us" mean? I cited Iran's state media, The JP cited the same source (the JP said that their version of the quote was "published on his website Thursday" – the ADL was more accurate, saying that the quote was "released by the Iranian official news media" : adl.org/PresRele/IslME_62/6357_62.htm) . I quoted the same source as the JP and the ADL. So why are the quotes different? Why would the JP and the ADL change the quote to make it say something different than what was really said?

    • ★FALCON★

      In your opinion – which is more credible?

      North Korean State Controlled Media – or – Iranian State Controlled Media.

      • dave742

        As I said above, I am quoting the same source as the ADL and the JP, which is the Iranian state media. The issue is not whether or not you believe what IRNA said, because the JP and the ADL are also quoting IRNA. Why does the JP and the ADL change what they see reported on IRNA? Are you saying that they look at what it says on IRNA, and just by reading it, they "know" it actually means that Ahmadinejad really said something different, and that he actually said that Israel should be annihilated? Because they "know" this, they feel that it is OK to simply change the quote?
        I am quoting the same source as the ADL and the JP. Try and understand what that means.

        • ★FALCON★

          You were more than "quoting" – You were adding your belief system.

          Ahmadinejad believes that justice-seeking nations should not allow Zionists to run world affairs any more, and that instead justice and peace should prevail.

          You discredit yourself with inane idiocy.

      • Kufar Dawg

        LOL!

    • Stern

      The day the quote first came out, I predicted that soon, we would be told it was mistranslated. Thanks for obliging. So if Iran were to drop a nuclear bomb on Israel, you would no doubt tell us that it wasn't really nuclear and it was only aimed at the chief of the IDF – and all those all other folks killed were really killed, just "edited"?

      • dave742

        No. If Iran dropped a nuclear bomb on Israel, I would acknowledge that it happened. But that has not happened. Let’s try to stick to reality. The reality is that the quote in this thread is a lie. I have looked at many, many of these quotes over the years, and they are all lies. I have also looked at many of the other claims made by the MSM about Iran that are not merely quotes, and they are all lies, too. I detailed some of them here:

        http://www.scribd.com/doc/39038338/Pierre-Goldsch

        If Iran is so evil and if they are planning to nuke Israel, then why does everyone have to lie about it? If Ahmadinejad makes “genocidal” quotes, then why can’t they be reported accurately? Why do they have to be fabricated? Your opinion of Ahmadinejad and of Iran are based on nothing but lies, and if I had the time I could should this quite clearly (I did so for many of the lies in the paper above). Your position, however, is to ignore the fact that they are lies, and to support bombing Iran anyway. In your mind, even though everything that is reported about Iran are lies, let’s bomb them anyway and kill a hundred thousand or so in the process just in case any of it is true. This is your position, yet you say it is Ahmadinejad that is evil.

          If GOD FORBID that happened ,YOU would be the same as all who saw their Jewish Neighbors DRAGGED from their homes and "acknowledged" that they "went away".
          If you're following these events, via Iranian media, you likely believe that this is only about " Medical Isotopes"

    • Ar'nun

      Who are the "Zionists that run World Affairs" ????? And why is there more evidence of Islamic violence than Zionist???? This "Zionist Conspiracy" twaddle has been espoused for a long time.

      ""And what is anti-Zionist? It is the denial to the Jewish people of a fundamental right that we justly claim for the people of Africa and freely accord all other nations of the Globe. It is discrimination against Jews, my friend, because they are Jews. In short, it is antisemitism.

      "The anti-Semite rejoices at any opportunity to vent his malice. The times have made it unpopular, in the West, to proclaim openly a hatred of the Jews. This being the case, the anti-Semite must constantly seek new forms and forums for his poison. How he must revel in the new masquerade! He does not hate the Jews, he is just 'anti-Zionist'!" M.L. King Jr., "This I Believe: Selections from the Writings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr." (New York, 1971), pp. 234-235.)

      • Kufar Dawg

        I didn't realize the antisemitic Zionist euphemism for Jew went back as far as that, or that MLK realized it way back then! If only MLK had lived. He would've made a difference in the ugly world we're living in today.

    • Ghostwriter

      Sorry,Dave742,but I usually don't go to the websites of genocidal lunatics like the Iranian mullahs. You sound like another anti-semite carrying water for those psychos. I have no problems with Israel. It's people like you and your anti-Jewish bigotry I have the problem with.

      Israeli Druze have recently come out in SUPPORT of the JEWISH state of Israel?

    Metzora 4. He who speaks with an evil tongue. A synopsis:

    "Rabbi Yitzchak says that G-d pardons everything except an evil tongue; one who speaks of evil, intending to defile another, is defiled himself. Rabbi Yehuda says that the word Metzora, meaning 'leper', includes the words Mozi Ra, meaning "speaks evil", and we learn that the prayers of one who speaks evil never come before G-d until he repents; then he will be cleansed."

    Let's connect the dots – Egyptian Al-Qaida leader Ayman Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri is and was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood – Obama aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya, Syria, Tunsia, and Sudan.

    Obama funded, provided logistics, and arms for the "rebels".
