Ahmadinejad: Zionists will disappear

BINT JBEIL, LEBANON - In a fiery speech two miles from Lebanon's border with Israel on Thursday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad promised a cheering crowd that the "Zionists will disappear" and that "occupied Palestine will be liberated."

On the second day of a visit to Lebanon, Ahmadinejad traveled to this border town in the southern Shiite heartland, which was hard hit by fighting during Israel's 2006 war against Iranian-backed Hezbollah guerrillas. Iran contributed generously to the cost of rebuilding the town and other Lebanese communities devastated by the war, and the Iranian president used his trip to the border area to voice support for the fight against Israel.

A crowd of thousands waving flags of Iran and Hezbollah greeted Ahmadinejad in the stadium in Bint Jbeil, where he said that the local people had given Israel "the taste of bitter defeat."

"You proved that your resistance, your patience, your steadfastness, were stronger than all the tanks and warplanes of the enemy, "Ahmadinejad told the throng.

"The entire world should know that the Zionists will disappear," Ahmadinejad said as a pair of Israeli helicopters flew along the border within sight of the stadium. "Today the Zionist occupiers have no choice but to surrender to reality and return to their homes and countries of origin."

"Rest assured that occupied Palestine will be liberated from the filth of the occupation by the power of the resistance and through the faith of the resistance," the Iranian leader said, bringing a roar from the crowd.

What a truly revolting human being.

Hyperbolic, but I can think of a lot of other things I'm more inclined to call "truly revolting": US support for a Muslim redoubt in holy Orthodox lands, for example.

The Israeli settlers are trespassing, pure and simple, and I don't see several hundred million Arabs putting up with that forever. We may despise the Iranian president's rhetoric and autocratic rule, but we have a lot of our own meddling to blame.

He will get his come-up- pence , haters like him always do. He will be gone, Israel will still be there and it doesn't matter what the Arabs try to do, it will fail.
Remember, the winners always write the history.
