Mahmoud Again Calls For Israel's Destruction

Mah- I'm- in- the- moud- for- euphemisms Ahmadinejad (rhymes with "Antisemitism -- now that's iron-clad) has once again called for the destruction of Israel, but not with his old "wiped off the map" rhetoric. Here's the latest from his mouthpiece news agency, Fars:
TEHRAN - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Saturday warned the Zionist regime of Israel to avoid invading Lebanon, adding that in case it intends to make up for its last year defeat in Lebanon, regional nations would uproot the regime from the region.
Liberal media may see the change from "wiped off the map" to "uprooted from the region" as indicative of a less strident, more approachable Ahmadinejad. They do try mightily to find evidence of more liberalness in Tehran, not because it's there, but because they think it might forestall a Bush-directed attack, which they feel is imminent.

They might note that the kinder Ahmadinejad is so diplomatic that he even warns Israel of the specifics of its forthcoming doom:
"According to our information, they intend to invade Lebanon this summer to make up for their last year defeat, and I warn other nations and this [Israeli] regime to be vigilant and to understand that this year is not going to be similar to last year," the Iranian president underlined.
I wonder how he underlined it. A gesture, perhaps? A swish of the hand across the air? An upthrust arm, palm open?

And what if we should try to stop this new, more approachable Ahmadinejad?
"But we have the honor to proclaim here today that satanic powers are not capable of harming the Iranian nation even for a bit, and if they think that they can make the Iranian nation surrender to them by avoiding dispatch of nuclear fuel or equipment to Iran, they are wrong, because we have already gained access to the production of nuclear fuel at an industrial scale," the Iranian president underscored.
Underscoring, underlining, underhanded SOB. I would humbly point out that satanic powers are not interested in harming the Iranian nation even one bit, because it's doing a fine, fine job of carrying out their agenda.
