    I fail to see what would motivate Aznar to make such a statement unless it were true. And if that's the case, one wonders what would prompt Khameinei to be so candid and matter-of-fact about such an aggressive position with another head of state (a pro-Western one at that), unless once again this is in fact Iranian policy. So to sum up, we have two indications that Iran's stated policy is to rid the world of the state of Israel, to which must be added Ahmadinejad's recent rantings and the whole Iranian nuclear issue. Reminds one of "when it looks like a duck..." Iran's intentions are a clear and present danger to Israel. Israel must be just as determined to thwart them, the sooner the better.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
