More genocidal saber-rattling from the Thug-In-Chief. From AP:
Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, declared Sunday that Israel had “pushed the button of its own destruction” by launching its military campaign against the Iranian-backed Hizbullah in Lebanon….
“Britain and the United States are accomplices of the Zionist regime in its crimes in Lebanon and Palestine,” said Ahmadinejad.
He said “the people of the region will respond” unless Israel and its allies apologize for their policies.
“Arrogant powers have set up a base for themselves to threaten and plunder nations in the region,” said Ahmadinejad. “But today, the occupier regime (Israel) – whose philosophy is based on threats, massacre and invasion – has reached its finishing line.”…
In Teheran, the government has sanctioned billboards showing Hizbullah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah and a message that it is the duty of Muslims to “wipe out” Israel. Officials also organized a demonstration in the southern city of Shiraz by Iran’s small Jewish community calling for Israel’s destruction and praising Hizbullah.
