The Global War On You Know Who

"The West is facing a concerted effort by Islamic jihadists, the motives and goals of whom are largely ignored by the Western media, to destroy the West and bring it forcibly into the Islamic world -- and to commit violence to that end even while their overall goal remains out of reach. That effort goes under the general rubric of jihad."

Iran: Approves Israel's Existence . . .

. . . somewhere else (hat tip: TC).
Iran's hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad triggered new international outcry by saying the "tumour" of the state of Israel should be relocated to Europe.
Umm, I think someone already tried that whole relocation thing.
His remarks were greeted with outrage from Germany, Austria, Israel and the United States, at the forefront of an international campaign to prevent the Islamic regime from acquiring nuclear weapons.

Ahmadinejad, who in October said arch-enemy Israel
Arch-enemy? What has Israel ever done to Iran? Oh, right. Exist.
must be "wiped off the map", said that if Germany and Austria believed Jews were massacred during World War II, a state of Israel should be established on their soil.
What a flip-flopper. First it's wipe 'em off the map, now it's stick 'em in Europe. Which is it?
"You believe the Jews were oppressed, why should the Palestinian Muslims [ignoring Palestinian Christians] have to pay the price?" he asked in an interview with Iranian state television's Arabic-language satellite channel, Al-Alam.
Why should Israel have to pay the price? Jordan, Egypt, and Syria could open their doors to the Palestinians, but they don't. Islamic policy is to keep Palestinians penned in, fired up, and awash in money for jihad.
"So, Germany and Austria, come and give one, two or any number of your provinces to the Zionist regime so they can create a country there... and the problem will be solved at its root," he said.

"Why do they insist on imposing themselves on other powers and creating a tumour so there is always tension and conflict?"
And so on. It would be almost comical if this was just some toothless Mo Six-Pack venting his spleen. But this is the president of a sovereign nation that openly funds Hizb'allah and will possess nuclear weapons any day now.
UN Secretary General Kofi Annan [a Muslim] also issued a reaction Thursday expressing shock at Ahmadinejad's remarks.
Now that's a howler. Just this week, the UN Security Council refused to condemn Monday's suicide bombing in Netanya. Which is entirely predictable, seeing as
at least since 1967, when the Six-Day War changed Israel's image from victim to victor, the UN has been consistently anti-Israel. About a quarter of all the rebukes issued by the UN Human Rights Commission are aimed at Israel, while dictatorial countries such as [Islamic] Iran are rarely criticized and countries such as [Islamic] Libya are even invited to chair the body.
Well, back to the mad mullahs.
Ahmadinejad also proposed "a referendum in Palestine for all the original Palestinians" to decide on the future of what is now Israel, the Gaza Strip and West Bank.
Great idea. I think Israel should hold a referendum on the future of Iran. He might also want to try this snout-counting concept the next time Iran holds "elections."
But he said "the best solution is resistance so that the enemies of the Palestinians accept the reality and the right of the Palestinian people to have land."
Ah yes, always the "but," followed by ululating cries for Jihad in the Way of Allah.
He was speaking in the Muslim holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia where he was attending a summit of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference.
