One thing everyone has already learned is that much is lost in translation when others choose the connotations while doing the translating.

We know that Israel's Zionists aren't going objectively to translate. Zionists are going to put the worst spin on everything any Iranian says unless that Iranian is licking a Zionist's boot.

Also, we all have learned what the Big Lie is (repeating something over and over in the hope that it will just become fixed in the minds of everyone as Gospel). Hitler, it is said, was great at it. Well, we don't have the Iranian translations from Iranian into English with all the nuanced meanings.

Besides, If Iran is wrong to call for Israel to disappear, why is Israel right in making Palestine disappear?

Let's be consistent, shall we. Let's not be dumber than doornails.

The Iranians say that the Zionists continually mistranslate them. Even after the Zionists are called on it, they still go right on ahead restating the same lying translations.

That's an insult to your intelligence by the way. They think you're too stupid to do anything about it.

They've been counting on the stupidity and complacency of Americans for many, many decades now.

Time to wake up! Time to stop supporting Apartheid in Palestine/Israel.

Where are the Iranian's translations into English of their own statements? Are those suppressed by the U.S. mainstream news?

Iran FM calls on Muslims to 'erase' Israel
TEHERAN - IRANIAN Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki called on the world's Muslims on Sunday to work to 'erase' Israel, in the latest verbal attack by Teheran against the Jewish state.

'As the Imam Khomeini said, if each Muslim throws a bucket of water on Israel, Israel will be erased,' Mr Mottaki told a conference in Teheran, recalling a saying by Iran's late revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has sparked international outrage for his repeated attacks against Israel, which he has predicted is doomed to disappear and described as a 'stinking corpse' and a 'dead rat'.

His most notorious attack was in 2005 when he repeated another saying from Mr Khomeini calling for Israel to be 'wiped from the map'.

Mr Mottaki added: 'More than ever, the Zionist regime is disintegrating from within. Today, the Islamic resistance in this region has shattered the regime's legend of invincibility.'

While Mr Ahmadinejad and top military commanders reguarly predict the demise of Israel, such virulent attacks from the foreign ministry are relatively unusual.

Iran vehemently denies charges of anti-Semitism, pointing to the continued existence in the country of the largest Jewish community in the Middle East outside Israel and saying it is only against Zionism.

Tensions between Iran and Israel have also intensified in the past year over the Iranian nuclear drive.

Israel, the Middle East's sole if undeclared atomic arms power, accuses Iran of seeking a nuclear weapon and, along with its chief ally the US, has never explicitly ruled out a military attack against the Islamic republic.

But Iran, which does not recognise Israel, insists that its nuclear programme is entirely peaceful and aimed solely at generating energy for a growing population. — AFP
