More Iranian Moderation

By on 10.26.05 | 7:38PM

In case you missed it, the latest reasonableness from new Iranian moderate president Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad is quoted in Financial Times to have said, "...on Wednesday declared that Israel should be 'wiped off the map' and warned Arab countries against developing economic ties with Israel in response to its withdrawal from Gaza."

The FT report goes on: "Anybody who recognises Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury." I guess that means us. Look for the French to decide Israel is the next Taiwan. (And to get an inkling of how that works, take a look at the list of the world's nations on the website for the CIA World Fact Book. Taiwan ain't listed.)
