From the Little Green Book of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

From UPI, the words of Ahmadinejad.

The countdown for the destruction of Israel has begun.

Zionists are the personification of Satan.

The West invented the myth of the massacre of the Jews (in World War II) and placed it above Allah, religions and prophets.

To those who doubt, to those who ask is it possible, or those who do not believe, I say accomplishment of a world without America and Israel is both possible and feasible

Is there a craft more beautiful, more sublime, more divine, than the craft of giving yourself to martyrdom and becoming holy? Do not doubt Allah will prevail, and Islam will conquer mountaintops of the entire world.

Iran can recruit hundreds of suicide bombers a day. Suicide is an invincible weapon. Suicide bombers in this land showed us the way, and they enlighten our future.

The will to commit suicide is one of the best ways of life.

We don't shy away from declaring that Islam is ready to rule the world.

The wave of the Islamist revolution will soon reach the entire world.

Everyone seems to expecting war in Lebanon. From Michael Totten, a report that Syrian troops have taken up positions 3 km inside Lebanese territory in the Bekaa Valley. Ynet quotes a MEMRI translation to the effect that Syria has told its citizens to leave Lebanon by the 15th of July when the "current political crisis may become a violent conflict". The IDF believe that this conflict will take place inside lebanon and is primarily a Shiite-Sunni struggle, but one that could easily spill across the border. The UPI article above sees in the offing attacks by Hezbollah on Israel and by Israel against Syria. No-one is forecasting sweetness and light.
