    This article and the mere suggestion of kidnapping a head of state is insane. I, by far, am no supporter of Ahmadinejad. He helps the regime in Iran oppress and murder my people in Iran. The whole system needs to go. But, let's make some corrections. 1st, he never said wipe Israel off the map, he was quoting Khomeini when he said the REGIME should disappear into the pages of history. 2nd, he started questioning tue Holocaust when cartoonists were drawing pictures of Mohammad and calling it free speech. He was trying to show. Double standard. But then his insanity kicked in. He brushed aside the millions of innocent people brutally murdered by a true madman. He brushed aside beautiful families and history murdered by a madman. Which, in my book, makes Ahmadinejad a madman. But, he has not committed genocide, nor will he. He is a short man trying to show the Arab streets that he is some kind of hero, all while destroying the beautiful culture and history of Iran; especially when it comes to the deep ties Jews and Iranians have. He is a twit not worth starting another bloody war by kidnapping him. On a side note, I commend Haaretz. In a region and a world where all media is biased, you have shown time and again that you are true journalists. It's shocking, inspirational, and beautiful. Please keep up the great work and don't let the fanatics on either side change you. Salaam-Shalom-Peace be with us all
