  • Elder of Ziyon
No, I didn't make up this phrase - it comes from an article by Greg Strange:
At the recent Arab Conference of Iraqi Neighbors in Tehran (sounds so innocuous, doesn‘t it?), Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad imparted these words of wisdom to his audience: "The basic problem in the Islamic world is the existence of the Zionist regime, and the Islamic world and the region must mobilize to remove this problem. It is a . . . regime that prevented the progress of the region's nations . . ."

It's the kind of talk that absolutely brings the house down at conferences in that part of the world. It's like pushing a button that sends impulses directly to the pleasure centers in the radical Islamic brain. Call it crack cocaine for Koranic crazies.

Actually, given the subject matter of this particular conference, you wouldn't think the main focus of discussion would be the need to eliminate Israel. But you can bet your sweet Koran that if a conference gets hosted in Tehran about anything from sturgeon fishing in the Caspian Sea to thirteenth century Persian poetry, somebody's going to find an excuse to bring up the Zionist regime.

Very funny, but if you think he is exaggerating, you haven't been following the GoozNews from Iran.

The Iranian media is foaming at the mouth even more than usual in falling over itself to denounce the "Zionist regime." But since it gets so, well, repetitive to hear Ahmadinejad's latest attempts to top himself, they need to find other spokespeople who are willing to demonize Israel.

It's like a who's who of nobodies and Iranian flunkies:

Iran's embassy in Armenia condemns Zionist crimes in Lebanon
Cleric says Israel 'politically dead'
Assembly of Experts condemns Zionist regime's crimes in Qana
I ask God to arouse the dignity of Muslims and destroy America, Israel and their associates,’ says General Safavi.
Asefi Terms Israel Greatest Violator of Human Rights
Iran embassy in Riyadh condemns crimes of Zionist regime
Iranian embassy (in Athens) condemns Israel's attacks on Lebanon
Iran's Swiss embassy condemns Israeli's savage air raids on Qana
Embassy condemns Israeli crimes as being against int'l conventions (Moscow)
Iran embassy condemns Israeli war crimes in Qana, southern Lebanon (North Korea)
Judiciary chief condemns Zionists' Qana bombing
Iranian Embassy in Jakarta condemns Israeli war crimes in Qana
Iranian children condemn Zionist regime's crimes in Lebanon
Iran's Embassy in Kabul condemns Qana bombing
Iranian Embassy in Manila grieves at Israeli war crimes in Qana
Iran Embassy in New Zealand voices outrage at Israeli war crimes
Elham says Qana killing shows Zionists' weakness
Iran’s military chief suspects Bush is a “Zionist
Indian Parliamentarians outraged at Zionist's action on Lebanon
Hamas Calls on World Muslims to Stand up to Israeli Crimes

...and on and on it goes. Every single time any Muslim says anything bad about Israel, the crack Iranian press is right on that scoop. Truly a model of journalistic excellence.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money.
