Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Quotes

OK, I'm back. Still frustrated and disgusted, but back.

You may be riding the fence on whether or not Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is either a crazed, sadistic lunatic or just someone who is well-meaning but misunderstood (note: this is how Dan Rather saw him in a recent interview). Here are some quotes that may help you understand this man a little better. Remember as you read this that this is the same man who is enriching uranium that could be used in nuclear weapons. Question: do you want this guy to have nuclear capabilities at his fingertips?

On the holocaust

"They have invented a myth that Jews were massacred and place this above God, religions and the prophets."

"We ask the West to remove what they created sixty years ago and if they do not listen to our recommendations, then the Palestinian nation and other nations will eventually do this for them."

On Israel

"Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury."

"Israel is a rotten, dried tree that will be annihilated in one storm."

"The skirmishes in the occupied land are part of a war of destiny. The outcome of hundreds of years of war will be defined in Palestinian land. As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map."

On Relations with the Western Nations

"[There is] no significant need for the United States."

On the UN Resolution, which goes into effect Aug. 30, for Iran to stop enriching Uranium

"Do you think you are dealing with a 4-year-old child to whom you can give some walnuts and chocolates and get gold from him?"

That would be like saying US troops have not deployed south of San Diego in 30 years.

I liked that perspective from your previous post, makes it concrete to picture, thx.
