Ahmadinejad calls Israel 'germ of corruption' to be 'removed soon'

And the world yawns. But just imagine if the American President had said this about, say, Iran. "Ahmadinejad calls Israel 'germ of corruption' to be 'removed soon,'" from the Associated Press, August 20 (thanks to Dionysius): Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is calling Israel a "germ of corruption" that will be "removed soon."

The comments were posted Wednesday on his presidential Web site. They appear to be part of an effort to defuse criticism by hard-liners over recent remarks made by a high-level official.

Last week, Iranian media quoted Vice President Esfandiar Rahim Mashai as saying Iranians were "friends of all people in the world - even Israelis."...

Horror of horrors!

I think it's pretty hilarious that Obama thinks he can talk Ahmadinejad down. It really shows some ignorance of there culture. I just read a really good article,Should The President of the United States Talk to Ahmadinejad? , that does a pretty good job explaining why this probably wouldn't have great results.
