Iran’s President has no problems with Jews. After all there are Jews in Iran. At least this is better than homosexuals because according to Ahmadinejad last year there are no homosexuals in Iran.
But, didn’t Ahmadinejad say a few years ago that Israel should be “wiped off the map?”
A good treatise about Jews in Iran and Shi’ite Iran’s Genocidal Jew Hatred can be read at the American Thinker.
Since 1979, the restored Iranian theocracy — in parallel with returning, brutally, their small remnant Jewish community to a state of obsequious dhimmitude, through execution and intimidation — has always focused its obsessive anti-Jewish animus on the autonomous Jewish state of Israel. For current Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the destruction of Israel is an openly avowed policy, driven by his eschatological beliefs. Mohammad Hassan Rahimian, representative of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, summarized this annihilationist eschatology, redolent with Koranic Jew hatred (see Koran 5:82)-which pertains to Jews, generally, not “Zionists”-on November 16, 2006, stating: “The Jew is the most obstinate enemy (Koran 5:82) of the devout. And the main war will determine the destiny of mankind….. The reappearance of the Twelfth Imam will lead to a war between Israel and the Shia.”
