Iran, Hamas Share Common Goal

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's support for the terrorist organization Hamas could not be any clearer. Speaking at a conference in Tehran called "The World without Zionism," Ahmadinejad said, "There is no doubt that the new wave (of attacks) in Palestine will wipe off this stigma (Israel) from the face of the Islamic world. Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury, any (Islamic leader) who recognizes the Zionist regime means he is acknowledging the surrender and defeat of the Islamic world." (China Daily: Iranian Leader: Israel will be destroyed).

Just in case anyone still had doubts about Ahmadinejad's message he went on to state, "As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map." This hard-line tone should come as no surprise to anyone. Despite quaint slogans such as the "road-map for peace", despite land concessions by Israel, despite a peace accord with the more moderate Egypt, and despite overtures by the Palestinian Authority, the fact remains that the Islamic states want nothing less than the full destruction of Israel. The idea that there can ever be peace in that region is sheer folly.

The blunt statements by Iran's president, however, make it quite clear that he - and Iran - have openly chosen to back the terrorist groups seeking the destruction of Israel. There is absolutely no difference between the terrorists that run Hamas and the terrorists that run Iran. As long as those terrorists exist, there will be no peace in Israel.

While the world takes umbrage over the assassination of a Lebanese prime minister, the world must be equally outraged by Ahmadinejad's remarks and the official anti-Semitic stance of Iran's government. Iran must be taken to task for their open support of terrorist activities in the Middle East. As financiers and political supporters of the terrorists bent on the destruction of Israel, they are as effectively at war with Israel as is Hamas.

In an address to the nation in 2001, President Bush referred to Iran as a part of the "Axis of Evil". He was not entirely accurate. Iran is the hub of that axis. It is the grease that keeps the wheels of terrorism in the Middle East turning. The only way to truly foster peace in that region is to exterminate rodents like Ahmadinejad that openly promote terrorism and scuttle any movements to bring stability to the Middle East.

I blogged this topic this morning too. I took a slightly sarcastic/ humurous tone but Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a scary dude.

It will be interesting to see the world response. Fortunately, Iran is part of the UN, so I am sure he will be held accountable (cough, cough).

Apparently there is no way Iran can be successful in it's goal to wipe out Israel. See The Christian Prophet blog:

Yes, Iran and Hamas share a Common Goal when they are made to experience a reality within a pitch of the west's making that pits one nation against another and sees gain in terms of its expense to another. And all of this, within a historical experience that sees the west having the advantage of steel capped boots.
