    Well he doesn't mince his words this guy, that's for sure. A quality treasured in GWB no less.

    None to my knowledge. I even had the impression Israel was recognised by Iran, but apparently I'm wrong with that? Maybe not. It is possible Iran has recognised Israel as a state, but that its current president thinks that is wrong.

    I do know Jerusalem is not widely recognised as Israel's capitol, but that's merely a technical diplomacy issue, I guess.

    I'm curious how long this Ahmadinejad-dude will stay in power in Iran. The nation seems ripe for a revolution.


    A silly question:
    Is CFC accessable from Iran?

    I'm pretty sure Egypt and Jordan have recognised Israel. I think after the Yom Kippur war (not sure).

    A far as I can tell, the (muslim) countries that recognize Isreal are:

    Egypt
    Jordan
    Tunesia
    Qatar
    Indonesia
    Afghanistan

    Not a big list, but growing slowly.

    I know. So much for a unified arab/molsem front. I don't think either country is likely to un-recognize them.

    I really doubt Israel has not been recognised by Syria, Morocco, Algeria or Pakistan. I'm sure about Turkey!

    A list of not-having-recognised-Israel based on facts would be nice :) .

    Ah, he doesn't have to do anything of the sort! An ignorant question: does Isreal occupy any particular land that is holy to Shia muslims? Or do tools like Ahmadinejad just beleive that a state of jews is just a sign of the coming apocolypse?

    Pakistan recognizes Israel it did buisness with it a little while ago. India has a significant Muslim pouplation (150-300 mil???) and it recognizes it alos. And yes Turkey MUST reconize Israel no doubt about that.

    Who gives a damn about a list of muslim countries? What I found interesting about this is that we haven't heard of a world leader issue such boldly hateful words in recent times. Even Kim Jong Il and Mugabe don't say things like this. Putin doesn't talk about Chechnya like this. China doesn't use such language when talking about Taiwan. Either this President is an unskilled diplomatic or he doesn't give a fu**.

    as much as usually advocate caution, here, this guy has gone too far.

    Let's face it, there's not much difference between him, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Hussein. I'd say, assassination ASAP. After all, this guy is developing nukes, and adding a direct threat to that is a totally new ballgame. Now he should learn to play by the ground rules. He chose the ground, now the umpires should react :nuke:
