    El Baradei may well be correct in stating that Israel has Nuclear weapons.

    What he failed to mention is that Israel has since it's inception not waged an offensive war against any other Nation.

    Nor indeed has it threatened any other Nation with it's supposed Nuclear weapons.

    Israel has most certainly never threatened to wipe another Nation from the face of the map.

    That's true. I wouldn't presume to claim that Shimon Peres and his threats represent the entire citizenry of a country.

    Clearly, El Baradei is a terrorist supporter. It's time for him to be removed from his position.

    He was, fortunately.
    He has a few months until he's swapped with the new elected head of UN nuclear agency, some Japanese dude.

    Odd. You were unaware of this in addition to your lack of knowledge about the paramilitary scandals of Alvaro Uribe. You need to brush up on your international studies, my man.

    Peres says that Iran 'can also be wiped off the map' - DominicanToday.com

    Jerusalem.– Vice Premier Shimon Peres said Monday in an interview to Reuters that "the president of Iran should remember that Iran can also be wiped off the map," Army Radio reported.
    Peres Warns Iran for Threatening Israel | Article from AP Online | HighBeam Research

    Israeli Vice Premier Shimon Peres warned Iran that it could be threatened with destruction if it continues to vow to destroy Israel.

    "Be careful with your threats," Peres told Channel 1 TV on Monday. "Those who threaten to destroy are in danger of being destroyed."...Peres, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, drew unusually stiff criticism from an analyst on Israel's state television, Yoav Limor, for talking of destroying another country.

    "There is a broad consensus that it would have been better if Peres had not said this, especially now," Limor said. "I'm quite sure Israel does not want to find itself in the same insane asylum as (Iranian President Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad."
    What's most important to note, of course, is that there's no translation dispute about the now-Israeli president's comments. There's no allegation that his threat that another country could be "wiped off the map" was misinterpreted or that he was actually referring only to a desire to see a political regime lose power, as was the case with Ahmadinejad. Rather, there was a clear and blatant threat regarding the physical destruction of a country, which would presumably entail the infliction of mass casualties on its citizenries and infrastructure. If this position gains any serious influence, the analysis of this regime being the greatest threat to the Middle East was well-considered indeed, especially in light of its control of an undeclared and unregulated nuclear arsenal developed under a previous regime under conditions of deliberate concealment from international inspectors.

    So basicaly what Vice Premier Shimon Peres said was that if you attack us you will be wiped out. Tell me how that is wrong again. Should Isreal not be able to defend themselves or what?
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    The majority (if disputed) view holds that Ahmadinejad was speaking of the eventual downfall of a political regime rather than the physical destruction of a country through military force. Conversely, there is no dispute about the fact that Peres was speaking of the military destruction of Iran itself. His comments were consequently regarded as provocative and inappropriate by persons such as the aforementioned Israeli analyst, while sentiments about Ahmadinejad's comments have been mixed and dependent on the translation of his statement, though the mass media still reports that he claimed that Israel itself should be "wiped off the map" without question, despite the fact that no such idiom exists in Farsi.

    ElB is exactly right. And every Iranian Mullah, Shiite Cleric, Sunni terrorist organization, and Pakistani Premier.....need to understand this as well. Your actions...Gentlemen...your jihads and your threats...need to realize, nukes are the biggest threat. And yer gonna have some inserted in orifices you don't want blocked and then ignited, they'll make a whole new Jewish holiday at your expense. They'll give it some fancy name and party for weeks on your tombstones.

    What say we concentrate on a Palestinian State and genuine peace in the region. Let's agree Israel is gonna be there every morning..and move on.

    Otherwise.....

    I never really liked that guy or trusted him. How many missiles has NK sent Israel, and how many to Iran? Who has supported Hezbollah and Hamas?
