Joe you being from the states should see things clearly, but I guess your thinking is clouded. Rest assured that Pres Ahmadin-a-jerk means what he says about the destruction of Israel. But he will go much further than that, if he has his way (now don't be fooled or nyieve) not even you will be able to express your opinion unless it is praising his ideology. The only reason he is not acting on his desires is because he does not yet have the means. But even non believers such as yourself will not be safe if he does. Remember if Hitler got his way we would all be speaking german, and with blonde hair & blue eyes...
