Ahmadinejad Makes Threats Of Muslim Revenge

Iran’s hard-line president warned yesterday that continued Israeli strikes against Palestinians could lead to an Islamic "explosion" targeting Israel and its Western supporters. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told thousands of demonstrators gathered in the capital, Tehran, to condemn the strikes in the Gaza Strip that Israel’s supporters could be the target of revenge by Muslims."They should not let things reach a point where an explosion occurs in the Islamic world," he said. "If an explosion occurs, then it won’t be limited to geographical boundaries. It will also burn all those who created" Israel "over the past 60 years," he said. Ahmadinejad once again questioned Israel’s right to exist. "This is a fake regime. ... It won’t be able to survive. I think the only way" forward "is that those who created it" the West "take it away themselves," he said.
