What on earth was Mr. Ahmadinejad thinking when he made the commentsd saying he would like to see Israel 'wiped off the face of the map'?
Way to go to put your country back several hundred years, outrage the world, turn many people in Iran into a baying brainwashed mob and undo all the work of the previous President, who although he was a cleric was very understanding and worked hard to forge relations with other countries.
The Iranians that I know are utterly ashamed of their government, and for a country which has majorly a young population who enjoy underground parties, buy illegal booze, movies, music and like western clothing etc, why on earth don't they raise their voices and do something about these ridiculous old men.
Because of Mr. Ahmadinejad's comments Iran should be suspended from the UN although their people have undertaken damage control and said they would never take any action which goes against UN laws and regulations. This man does not think for the good of his people, he spouts his own views and ideals and if he ever wanted to give Bush another reason to cast his evil eye on Iran - that was it - how stupid can you be?
