Maybe he was "misinterpreted" -- again

A commenter from France claims Iran's president has been "misinterpreted" in his statements about Israel (you know, "wiping it off the map," "annihilating" it, Holocaust doubts ...). Wonder what Ahmadinejad means this time in his [Israel] is a "tyrannical regime that will one day be destroyed" statement? The current Israeli government, maybe? That's surely a stretch. The current "regime" is one of the most moderate you're likely to see in that nation.

Let's just be real here. Ahmadinejad, like way too many in the Middle East, wants Israel GONE.

What then? Let's suppose for a minute, the "Palestinian question" is resolved. Every Jew has fled or has been driven into the sea. Israel is no more and Palestine is a soverign state. Would anything change? Would the people be any better off? They would have more land but that's it. The infrastructure and trappings of state must be maintained and the Palestinians are not up to the task. Israel would deteriorate into Ramallah writ large.
