AFP - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Wednesday called Israel a "dirty microbe" and "savage animal", as Iran stepped up its rhetoric against the Jewish state after the murder of a top Hezbollah commander.

RLCC: Who did the translation? What is Iran saying he really meant? He has been badly misquoted before by those who then refused to alter the mistranslation. It was used as propaganda over and over and over. This could be the same thing. Ahmadinejad didn't call for Israel to be wiped off the map but rather to disappear ideologically (that is to say that false Zionism needs to disappear). We agree. We are against all violent and coercive means to accomplish that however.

    It is difficult to find out how well the words were translated. Some sites say he said, "World powers have created a black and dirty microbe named the Zionist regime and have unleashed it like a savage animal on the nations of the region."

    We don't hold with the false version of Zionism. The current state of Israel was formed by terrorists. That's proven history. We've documented it on this site. The majority of Israelis right now are also outright racists and land thieves. Thank God for the Jews who are not. Thank God even more for the Jews who stand up to their fellow Jews to say woe to you who beat your relatives (Palestinians).

    That said, Ahmadinejad has an unhelpful agenda. He is the puppet of the Islamic theocracy of Iran.

    Can they (the Iranian religious leaders) be reasoned with? Well, will they allow complete freedom of religion? That's a beginning litmus test. Forced theocracy is wrong.
