iran’s mahmoud ahmadinejad: ridiculous name, ridiculous ideology

TEHRAN, Oct. 26 – Iran’s new hard-line president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, told a group of students at an anti-Israel event today that Israel must be “wiped off the map” and that attacks by Palestinians will destroy it, the Iranian student news agency, ISNA, reported.

He was speaking to an audience of about 4,000 student [sic] at a program called The World without Zionism.

He said in his remarks today that the issue of a Palestinian state would be resolved only when Palestinians took control of all their lands.

Referring to comments by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the Islamic revolution, Mr. Admadinejad said, “As the imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map.” [source]

  1. I refer you to two posts on the ‘eye’:

  2. I do want to add that while the comments and the indivudual who made them are ridiculous, the name is not. While they sound funny in English, both the first and surname are common enough, and they both have religious significance. There are a lot of Mahmoud’s out there and at least a signficant number of Ahmadinijads out there to take you up on this.
