So President Ahmadinejad has said in public that soon Iran will bring about the total disappearance of Israel. What should be done with this "president" and his statements? Just continue to ignore all his comments (just like those statements he made in 2005)

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's president said on Monday Israel would soon disappear off the map and that the "satanic power" of the United States faced destruction, in his latest verbal attack on the Islamic Republic's arch-foes.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was speaking at a gathering of foreign guests marking this week's 19th anniversary of the death of Iran's late revolutionary leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, in 1989, the official IRNA news agency said.

"You should know that the criminal and terrorist Zionist regime which has 60 years of plundering, aggression and crimes in its file has reached the end of its work and will soon disappear off the geographical scene," he said.

Turning to the United States, he said the era of decline and destruction of its "satanic power" had begun and added: "The bell on the countdown of the destruction of the empire of power and wealth has begun to ring."

Opposition to Israel is a fundamental principle in Shi'ite Muslim Iran, which backs Palestinian militants opposed to peace with the Jewish state.

A 2005 statement by Ahmadinejad saying that Israel should be "wiped off the map" outraged the international community.

In April, a senior Iranian army commander said Iran will respond to any military attack from Israel by "eliminating" it, in comments condemned by Washington.

The United States, which severed ties with Iran shortly after its 1979 Islamic revolution, is leading efforts to isolate Tehran over its disputed nuclear program.

Some analysts have speculated that Israel might attack Iran to stop its nuclear activities, which the West fears are a front for weapons development. Iran, which does not recognize Israel, insists it wants nuclear technology only for electricity.

Iran, the world's fourth-largest oil producer, says it has developed ballistic missiles able to hit Israel and U.S. bases in the region.

Washington says it wants a diplomatic resolution to the nuclear dispute but has not ruled out military action if that fails. Tehran insists it will not bow to Western pressure.

The more psycho-babble that spews from Ahmadinejad's mouth, the more damage Obama will inflict on the US by 'negotiating' with him. He's actually worse than Hitler. Hitler at least had a brain.

So what?  Krustchev used to say   "we will bury you!"   Are we going to base our foreign policy on nonsense like this?   What are the actual "facts"?  What has he actually "done"?

. What  is Israel going to do?  It is all basicly their creation that we are making our own.

What changes words to actions is the advent of a nuclear capability in the hands of "fanatics".  With Khrushchev, second strike capability, etc was always the deterrent.  With fanatical leaders like Ahmadinejad, he is not deterred by second strike; he is willing to sacrifice many lives to achieve his goal.

Bad comparison. K. was safely atheistic, and feared M.A.D. Ahmadinejad is a religious fanatic who actually wants to trigger the End Times, so as to resurrect THE TWELFTH IMAM. Look frig'n out.

Iran's president is evidently one of the demon-possessed leaders of the east who start the battle of Ar Mageddon.

Ahmadinejad says Israel to vanish with or without Iran

He isn't even saying he will be behind it. Of course, we don't know exactly what he said, due to no comparison translation.
The important thing to remember about American history is that it is fictional, a charcoal-sketched simplicity for the children or the easily bored. For the most part it is uninspected, unimagined, unthought, a representative of the thing and not the thing itself. It is a fine fiction...
Neil Gaiman

‎"Ignorance of ignorance, then, is that self-satisfied state of unawareness in which man, knowing nothing outside the limited area of his physical senses, bumptiously declares there is nothing more to know! He who knows no life save the physical is merely ignorant; but he who declares physical life to be all-important and elevates it to the position of supreme reality--such a one is ignorant of his own ignorance."
- Manly Palmer Hall

What we do know, however, is who is most attentively listening to these translations.

Those NOT interested in peace with Iran. They LOVE their bogeyman! They PROP HIM UP!

Personally, I could not take this moron in Tehran less serious than I already do.
tl;dr
