Iran president says Israel's days are numbered
Reuters via Yahoo! ^ | 12/12/2006 | By Paul Hughes

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday told delegates at an international conference questioning the Holocaust that Israel's days were numbered.

Ahmadinejad, who has sparked international outcry by referring to the killing of six million Jews in World War Two as a "myth" and calling for Israel to be "wiped off the map," launched another verbal attack on the Jewish state.

"Thanks to people's wishes and God's will the trend for the existence of the Zionist regime is downwards and this is what God has promised and what all nations want," he said.

"Just as the Soviet Union was wiped out and today does not exist, so will the Zionist regime soon be wiped out," he added.

His words received warm applause from delegates at the Holocaust conference, who included ultra-Orthodox anti-Israel Jews and European and American writers who argue the Holocaust was either fabricated or exaggerated.

The Vatican, Germany and the European Commission added their voices on Tuesday to others -- such as the United States and Israel -- who have condemned the Tehran meeting.

Iran says it organized the conference to shed light on the reasons behind the formation of the state of Israel after World War Two and to allow researchers from countries where it is a crime to question the Holocaust to speak freely.

"Iran is your home and is the home of all freedom seekers of the world," Ahmadinejad said. "Here you can express your views and exchange opinions in a friendly, brotherly and free atmosphere."

"FACT-FINDING" COMMITTEE FORMED

He urged countries where Holocaust denial is a crime, to respect freedom of speech and not to take action against any of the conference participants on their return.

Human rights groups frequently number Iran as one of the world's worst violators of free speech, where scores of newspapers have been closed, journalists jailed, access to Web sites blocked and government critics hounded out of the country.

Delegates at the meeting earlier on Tuesday agreed to form a "fact-finding" committee to study the Holocaust.

The head of the new committee, identified as Iranian academic Mohammad Ali Ramin, said its members were "not racist or opposed to any particular group."

"Rather they are just seeking the truth to set humanity truly free," the ISNA students news agency quoted him as saying, without naming the committee members.

Robert Faurisson, a French scholar who has described the Holocaust as a "historical lie," said the committee included members from the United States, France, Canada, Switzerland, Austria, Iran, Bahrain and Syria, ISNA reported.

The Vatican called the Holocaust an "immense tragedy" which had to remain forever a warning for all people to respect the rights of others.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the Tehran meeting "shows the danger of the situation Israel is in and in particular the threat that Israel lives under."

She was speaking after meeting Ehud Olmert, who was on his first visit to Germany as Israeli Prime Minister.

Germany has made it a priority to support Israel since the Holocaust under the Nazis and the end of World War Two in 1945.

EU Commissioner Franco Frattini expressed "shock and indignation," adding: "Anti-Semitism has no place in Europe; nor should it in any other part of the world."

And how many Americans have been killed in Iraq because of him, Iraqis in Iraq, Lebanese in Lebanon, and Israelis in Israel? It's long past time when the world needs to wake up to the obvious fact that Ahmadinejad is a murdering, terror-sponsoring, Holocaust-denying despot.

delegates at the Holocaust conference, who included ultra-Orthodox anti-Israel Jews

What does this statement even mean? Are there some Jews who do not believe in the right of the nation of Israel to exist? What end would that possibly serve them? How can they back that up scripturally?

The ultra-Orthodox Jews they are referring to are the Neturei Karta. (Ahmad is kissing one in my post #10 above.) The NK members believe that Israel is the Jewish nation just like Zionists.

The difference is that the NK believe that Israel can only be reestablished with the coming of the Messiah and that any form of forceful recapture of Israel is a violation of divine will.

"Iran is your home and is the home of all freedom seekers of the world," Ahmadinejad said. "Here you can express your views and exchange opinions in a friendly, brotherly and free atmosphere."

But if you speak badly about Iran or Islam we will kill you.

As to your question:
"Are there some Jews who do not believe in the right of the nation of Israel to exist?"


Why would that be so odd since we have Americans that don't think America has a right to exist.

Apparently there are Jews who don't believe Israel should exist. Not sure where the scripture supports that, however.

Yes - there is a small radical Jewish faction (many in NY) that opines that the "true nation of Israel" can only come about (return) with the return of the Jewish Messiah - and thus the Jewish Zionists are just impostors and pretenders

Israel's enemies have been saying the same thing sense the Exodus. Amazing how many of those enemies are on the dust bin of history while Israel remains. Even the Persian empire.

Jer 31:35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:
Jer 31:36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me forever.
Jer 31:37 Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD.

Psa 83:1 A Song or Psalm of Asaph. Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
Psa 83:2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
Psa 83:3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
Psa 83:4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
Psa 83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
Psa 83:6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
Psa 83:7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Psa 83:8 Assur also is joined with them: they have helped the children of Lot. Selah.
Psa 83:9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:
Psa 83:10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.
Psa 83:11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
Psa 83:12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
Psa 83:13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
Psa 83:14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
Psa 83:15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
Psa 83:16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
Psa 83:17 Let them be confounded and troubled forever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
Psa 83:18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.

"Why would that be so odd since we have Americans that don't think America has a right to exist."

From the few searches I've done and read on the Neturei Karta (Thanks, all who answered me... you learn SO much here at FR), it is mostly an American-Jewish non-Zionist population in New York... which is undoubtedly borne of the same coddled, overprivileged elitist nonsense that most of the Leftist Anti-American drivel comes from.

The last few generations have grown up with so much that we've never had to fight for or work for anything, and we expect everything to be handed to us. Very much a "let them eat cake" attitude. Completely no concept of the great wealth they have or how they got it.

Pro-Israel speech in Iran is outlawed. Of course the irony is lost upon the anti-semites there when they meet with fellow Jew-haters from around the planet. All you need to really know is these people want Jews dead.
