PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia -
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday the solution to the Middle East crisis is to destroy Israel. In a speech during an emergency meeting of Muslim leaders, Ahmadinejad also called for an immediate halt to fighting in Lebanon between Israel and the Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah.
"Although the main solution is for the elimination of the Zionist regime, at this stage an immediate cease-fire must be implemented," he said.
Ahmadinejad, who has drawn international condemnation with previous calls for Israel to be wiped off the map, said the Middle East would be better off "without the existence of the Zionist regime."
Israel "is an illegitimate regime, there is no legal basis for its existence," he said.
In Jerusalem, Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev responded by noting the ties between Ahmadinejad's regime and Hezbollah.
"Our operation in Lebanon is designed to neutralize one of the long arms of
Iran — Hezbollah," Regev said. "Hezbollah is their proxy, being used as an instrument of Teheran to advance their extremist agenda and the blow to Hezbollah is a blow to Iranian interests and a blow to all extremist jihadist forces in the region."
Ahmadinejad accused the United States of using Israel to try to control the Middle East and its oil wealth.
"Today the Americans are after the greater Middle East," he said. "The Zionist regime is used to reach this objective. The sole existence of this regime is for invasion and attack."

So according to the crazy ass president of Iran, the easiest and most simplest way to end the current Middle East conflict would be to destroy the state of Israel. This of course is an unacceptable solution to this problem and one that will no solve anything.
The President of Iran has repeatedly and maliciously insulted the state of Israel and Jewish people all over the world with his inflammatory remarks of how Israel should be “wiped from the map”, and that the holocaust never happened, he even went as far as to say that if Europe and the United States believe there was a holocaust that they should be the ones to give up land in those areas in the world to make a new Jewish state.
These types of loaded remarks only fuel the international call to remove this obvious madman from power, not to mention that Iran is funding Hezbollah and is arming them with rockets which they are using to kill innocent Israeli civilians.
No one in the world or even our own State Department is talking about how Iran is providing supplies and IED’s to the terrorists that we are fighting in Iraq, there are even claims that small numbers of elite Iranian forces are operating in Iraq.
These actions are directly killing and wounding US and Coalition forces in Iraq and are destabilizing the country and constitute a clear act of war against the United States and the sovereign country of Iraq as well.
The President of Iran has openly invited such a confrontation with our country and has tried to bolster his forces and try to dissuade us from such an attack by testing new weapons meant to catch our eye and force us not to act.
This is why they are working on a nuclear weapon at a feverish pace, to try to stop us from freeing that country from its savage rulers. He has also stated that it would only take one nuke to destroy Israel.
We should take him at his word and believe that he wants to destroy Israel and ourselves, take the initiative and use all means to help the people in the country who want to over throw the Shahs and bring democracy to Iran.
With Israel moving deeper into southern Lebanon, tensions between Syria also are on the rise and we must watch this carefully otherwise that whole region could become engulfed in war with Israel, if that happens we will undoubtedly be pulled into that conflict.
