Iran's president said on Sunday the Lebanese and the Palestinians had pressed a "countdown button" to bring an end to Israel.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who triggered outrage in the West two years ago when he said Israel should be "wiped off the map", has often referred to the destruction of the Jewish state but says Iran is not a threat.
"With God's help, the countdown button for the destruction of the Zionist regime has been pushed by the hands of the children of Lebanon and Palestine," Ahmadinejad said in a speech.
"By God's will, we will witness the destruction of this regime in the near future," he said. He did not elaborate.
Iran often praises the Palestinians for what it says is their resistance against Israeli occupation. Tehran also described the war last summer between Hezbollah in Lebanon and Israel as a victory for the Iranian-backed group.
I guess we should celebrate, eh, Jimmy Carter? I mean, according to liberals, Israelis are living in land that they "stole" from Palestine, and Palestinians are peaceful people who keep getting provoked unnecessarily by the violent Zionists. It's apartheid, right? Those damn Israelis deserve it. If we hadn't helped them out so much, 9-11 never would've happened... if you believe leftist drivel, anyways.
