he said eradicate 'israel' or eradicate 'zionist regime'??? entirely different meanings. a country is not one regime. if i want to eradicate anarchists from USA, it doesn't mean i wish to destroy the country. how many jewish people are also anti-zionist and wish to eradicate zionism? he's never mentioned a single derogatory word about jews. just ask iranian jews? i'm not defending the lunatic, i just want to clarify the actual words he used. he's never said he wants to massacre israelis or jews, just the ideology of zionism which he deems discriminatory.
