Iranian President Ahmadinejad's Defeatism

Iranian President Ahmadinejad re-ignited the debate over the Israeli conflict with his remarks to a San Antonio radio station on Sunday. "The idea that Israel is going to win the war is just plain wrong. Sharon has a permanent commitment to a failed strategy" Ahmadinejad went on to say, "Israel needs to be out of there and take the targets off their civilians' back."

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad implied that European countries backed the founding of Israel in the Middle East in 1948 based on manipulated intelligence regarding chemical and biological weapons and an exaggerated threat to the Jewish people in the West's head long rush to establish the Zionist state.

Ahmadinejad renewed his call for Israel to strategically redeploy their troops to some place near Israel, perhaps a few hundred miles west of Tel Aviv, laying out what he said was another option for victory in Transjordan. "I want to make it clear" he said, " I am not calling for an imediate withdrawal, but a smooth and orderly withdawal over the next six months."

Ahmadinejad went on to say, "I wish the British and Americans had paid more attention to the history of the area before the Zionist occupation began. I am convinced, and everything that I've read, the conclusion I've reached is there will be less terrorism, there will be less danger to the Jews, and it'll be less insurgency once the IDF is out and Israel is located somewhere in Germany or Switzerland.
