The Goal: Annihilating Israel

[Ha'aretz] Yoel Marcus - Israel is the only member of the UN that is being openly threatened with destruction - not just as a country but as a Jewish state. Iranian President Ahmadinejad, who never loses an opportunity to sow hatred against the Jews, is busy drumming up support for the annihilation of Israel with remarks like, "Israel is a dried-out rotten tree that can be knocked down in one storm," and "The countdown has begun for the destruction of Israel." From some corners, Israel is being reassured that the threats to destroy it are all talk. This is not the opinion of Prof. Bernard Lewis, who advises that the Iranian threats be taken very seriously, because there is an apocalyptic Shia sect out there liable to wake up and do something to hasten the arrival of its messiah, Imam al-Mahdi. It is no coincidence that Hizbullah's Hassan Nasrallah is also prophesying the coming destruction of Israel based on such messianic beliefs.
