AP:Ahmadinejad warns of Islamic ‘explosion’

Iran’s hard-line president warned Friday that continued Israeli strikes against Palestinians could lead to an Islamic “explosion” targeting Israel and its Western supporters.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told thousands of demonstrators gathered in the capital, Tehran, to condemn the strikes in the Gaza Strip that Israel’s supporters could be the target of revenge by Muslims.

“They should not let things reach a point where an explosion occurs in the Islamic world,” he said. “If an explosion occurs, then it won’t be limited to geographical boundaries. It will also burn all those who created (Israel) over the past 60 years,” he said.

Ahmadinejad once again questioned Israel’s right to exist.

“This is a fake regime … it won’t be able to survive. I think the only way (forward) is that those who created it (the West) take it away themselves,” the president said.

Ahmadinejad, who last year called for Israel to be “wiped off the map,” has repeatedly voiced fiery rhetoric against the Jewish state.

Iran supports — and has varying degrees of influence on — Islamic militant groups in the region including Hamas, Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

Bluster and bloviation from Ahmadinejad. But what else is new?

Iran hates Israel and has been sponsoring terrorists in Palestine for decades while trying to drive Israel out.

But……Israel has NUKES and Iran does not – a big difference. Ahmadinejad can shoot off his mouth but not a nuclear arsenal.

Stay tuned…..
