A few days ago, Iranian President Mahmoud “Difficult Last Name” Ahmadinejad made a casual little remark about wiping the Zionist entity off the face of the Earth. For some reason, despite the fact that the political and religious leaders of just about every Muslim country on the planet have been repeatedly saying things along these lines since May 1948, this time the international community took notice. This is sort of the international relations equivalent of, after faithfully reading the KKK’s newsletter for 40 years, waking up and realizing for the first time that David Duke doesn’t like black people.
Anyway, boys and girls, warm up your memory holes, because the Iranian Foreign Ministry has released a statement:
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is committed to its U.N. charter commitments. It has never used force against a second country or threatened the use of force.”
Even if we overlook the fact that the use of force was threatened just a few days ago, even if we overlook “Death to Israel” written on those missiles, I’ll bet a few people who lived in Iraq circa 1980-1988 might dispute that statement.
Yet there’s more damage control going on within the Land of the Mullahs:
In a Friday prayer speech, the former speaker of the Iranian parliament, Aliakbar Nateq-Noori, said that what Ahmadinejad meant was that free and fair elections should be held in Palestine, with the participation of all Palestinians, including refugees, and that whoever wins the election should take over the government.
Farsi, you see, is a very nuanced language, and obviously the incompetent translator for the Zionist-controlled media was unable to grasp its complexities and therefore understandably heard “We must wipe Israel from the map” when what was actually said was “Free and fair elections should be held in Palestine.” It’s a mistake anybody could have made.
I don’t know what’s sadder: that Iran expects the world to be that stupid, or that the world probably is.
All I know is that I’m sure glad we successfully killed all those bad terrorists in Iraq and, now that democracy is flowering throughout the Middle East, no sovereign nation would ever advocate, y’know, nuking the Jews.
I love the new world order!
