But there is another development in Iran - this one positive and with great potential - that the world should not miss: civic defiance against Ahmadinejad's authoritarianism is increasing.

    The widely publicized and condemned remarks by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad about Israel and the Holocaust reflect the range of anti-Jewish thinking in the post-Holocaust era.

Often hatred of Jews manifested itself in hatred of the State of Israel, not merely legitimate critiques of Israeli policy, but denial of Israel's right to exist and seeing the Jewish state as the source of all evil in the Middle East, if not the world.

    To think clearly about how best to remove the looming threat of a nuclear-armed Iran, just keep in mind the National Rifle Associationís much maligned Ė but perfectly sensible Ė old slogan: Guns donít kill people. People kill people. Itís the same with nuclear weapons. The threat isnít from the warhead, but from the individual who controls it. For example, right now several countries whose governments arenít always friendly to the US Ė China, Russia, France Ė each have enough nuclear warheads, and the means to deliver them, to obliterate our country. But we donít lose one minuteís sleep over...

In October, Ahmadinejad also said Israel should be "wiped off the map."

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - The Iranian-backed militia the Badr Organization has taken over many of the Iraqi Interior Ministry's intelligence activities and infiltrated its elite commando units, U.S. and Iraqi officials said. That's enabled the Shiite Muslim militia to use Interior Ministry vehicles and equipment - much of it bought with American money - to carry out revenge attacks against the minority Sunni Muslims, who persecuted the Shiites under Sunni dictator Saddam Hussein, current and former Ministry of Interior employees told Knight Ridder.

    WASHINGTON - The Bush administration is ruling out a guarantee not to attack Iran to induce it to halt development of nuclear weapons. ADVERTISEMENT Anderson Cooper Iran must first act like a responsible member of the international community and stop violating its agreements, State Department spokesman Adam Ereli said Monday. "That would represent a sea change in its behavior," Ereli said. "Then maybe other kinds of notions might be more palatable." "But right now, I don't think people should be asking the United States, 'Why don't you do this or why don't you do that?'" the U.S. official said. Ereli's...

    No nuclear power will attack another one for fear of committing national suicide. That is the familiar logic of Mutually Assured Destruction (M-A-D), which kept the US safe but pretty nervous over fifty years of the Cold War. Stalin and Mao rattled some fearsome sabers, and Castro tried to sneak nuclear missiles into Cuba. But as saner voices took over in the Communist powers, the Cold War settled down to a long, drawn-out struggle. Nuclear deterrence created stability. Mohammed El-Baradei, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, has just been quoted as saying that Tehran is only a few...

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel called Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad "very dangerous" on Friday after he expressed doubt that the Holocaust occurred and suggested the Jewish state be moved to Europe. "This was not a misstatement or a passing remark," Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom told Israel Radio. "It is a systematic way of thinking which is intended to bring about the annihilation of the state of Israel." Ahmadinejad's comments drew quick international condemnation, as did his call in October for Israel to be "wiped off the map". Asked whether Ahmadinejad could be compared to Libya's Muammar Gaddafi, once among Israel's...

    MORE NEWS FROM IRAN Speaking of Islamic dictatorships, the president of Iran is once again speaking his mind. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said yesterday that he doubted the Holocaust took place and that Israel should be moved to Europe. That's at least a step up from wanting to destroy it. Kofi Annan condemned the statements, which may be a first. This in addition to the cancellation of his trip to Tehran after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he wanted to wipe Israel off the map. Now given Iran's desire to get rid of Israel, and that regime's previous call for the destruction of the...
