AHMADINEJAD SAYS STUFF ABOUT ISRAEL THAT ISN’T REALLY GOING TO HELP HIM MUCH
August 2 2012
Tehran, Iran – It has been literally weeks since Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has hit the headlines but, ever the showman, has done so again. Even after all the attention paid to the ongoing conflict in Syria, Ahmadinejad has made him and his nation the centre of attention once again.
Speaking before a group of ambassadors from other nations, Ahmadinejad once again railed against Israel, or at least the Zionist forces in Israel and the ones he believes are controlling the world. That, given the tension between his nation and Israel, likely won’t make him any friends and could possibly lead to war.
Thus far no one has officially responded to Ahmadinejad’s comments but, given that many countries already want to blow him and his nation off the face of the planet, making those kinds of comments likely isn’t going do him any favours.
“They are the decision makers, to the extent that the presidential election hopefuls must go and kiss the feet of the Zionists to ensure their election victory,” said the Iranian President. “Anyone who loves freedom and justice must strive for the annihilation of the Zionist regime in order to pave the way for world justice and freedom.”
Technically, Zionism is a political and social philosophy which is practiced by many in Israel including current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
It’s believed that Ahmadinejad was just using that word in lieu of actually saying Israel because a comment such as that could easily be construed as a declaration of war. Also, he’s a bigot.
“I have to say that in generally Iran really like to agitate people. There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to actually doing it but they seem to get a kick out of it, or whatever. I mean they keep doing it, angering people all over the world so obviously they like it for whatever reason but this might have gone a little far,” said Scrape TV International analyst Gustav Hander. “I mean clearly he is calling for Jewish people all over the world to be killed which is really the kind of thing that pushes things a little too far, generally. Saying you hate a country, especially one that has stated that it wants to attack you and has been assassinating your citizens, that’s kind of acceptable. Saying this, though, isn’t that. This kind of thing isn’t going to help him any.”
Ahmadinejad finishes his final term next year so he clearly isn’t looking for re-election.
“He also made comments about solving all the world’s problems by resolving the Palestinian issue which is odd. Odd because it most certainly would not do that and only a crazy person would think otherwise. That could be his problem, it could well be that Ahmadinejad is crazy and maybe that’s why he says all these crazy things. I guess that’s a thing crazy people tend to do,” continued Hander. “Unfortunately he is also the leader of a nation, one under serious threat and so saying crazy things, well, that just isn’t going to help anyone want to not attack him and his country. Certainly if he’s trying to avoid war he is going in the opposite direction but who knows. The man might actually be crazy.”
It’s not believed that Ahmadinejad will actually act on his words because he is also a bit of a coward.
