Ahmadinejad Checks In, But Will He Check Out?

It’s bad enough when Mr. Evil Incarnate spouts his Jew hatred in his own country, but when he takes his anti-Israel spew show on the road to Lebanon and pals around with Hezbollah, he’s pushing his luck. If Ahmadinejad actually heads for the border and tries to throw rocks into Israel, all bets are off.

Ahmadinejad: Lebanon a school of Jihad

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is on a two-day visit to Lebanon, spoke before a mass rally organized in is honor by Hezbollah at the Dahiya quarter of Beirut, which is considered one of the Shiite group’s strongholds.

Wednesday’s rally, which saw masses gather at a local soccer field, waving Iranian flags and chanted “Welcome” in Persian, was missing Hezbollah Chief Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, who welcomed Ahmadinejad to Lebanon via a video feed from his bunker: “I welcome you here on behalf of the injured, the dead, the released prisoners and this people, who have fought to create the miracle of victory. You are a steadfast staff for the resistance.”

“I come from the land of the Imam Khomeini, bearing the best wishes of the Iranian people and its leaders,” Ahmadinejad told the masses. “Lebanon is the an example and school for unwavering resistance to the world’s tyrants and a university for Jihad. Visiting Lebanon and meeting the leaders is a dream come true for me.”

Ahmadinejad spoke in Persian and used an interpreter.

The Iranian leader wasted no time in attacking Israel for violating the Palestinians’ rights: “Do you see anything but crimes in the past actions of the Zionist regime? The massacre of innocent people, the use of weapons, razing homes, confiscating medicine, food and water, attacking civilians in international waters and threatening the world is an everyday occurrence for them.”

The West, he added, considers Israel “means of dominating the world,” and to that end it has given it nuclear weapons.

‘Israel’s weakness exposed’

Turning his attention to the Second Lebanon War and Operation Cast Lead, the Iranian president said the two military campaigns “exposed Israel’s weakness… it is also possible that those barbaric Zionists will seek a new regional adventure to try and compensate. I say – any attack will only bring this phony regime closer to its end.”

Eldad: IDF should kill Ahmadinejad if he throws stones

MK Arye Eldad (National Union) said on Wednesday that the IDF should kill Ahmadinejad if he visits Lebanon’s border with Israel.

“The history of man-kind would be different if in 1939 somehow, a Jewish soldier had succeeded to kill Hitler,” Eldad said.

He continued, “If even for one moment, Ahmadinejad is in the IDF’s sights on the day that he comes to throw stones at us, he cannot be allowed to return home alive.”

“The State of Israel was established so that the Jewish people can be responsible for their own destiny,” Eldad said.

Israel doesn’t actually have to assassinate Ahmadinejad, he’s going to be hanging out with Hezbollah all day and touring their explosives laden camps, tempting fate. Hey, Hezbollah weapons caches have been known to “accidental” blow up before, so it’s far from out of the realm of possibility. You’ll notice that Nasrallah isn’t stupid, he never leaves his bunker, because he knows what will happen if he does.

Dénouement Coming

Iranian nuclear weapons soon to be a reality?

In direct defiance of an international plan to curb Iran’s nuclear program, Iran’s president announced that his country will enrich uranium to a much higher level.

This could put Iran on the road to arming a nuclear warhead within months.

Iran denies any interest in developing nuclear weapons; however, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made a comment in a recent speech addressing Iran’s enrichment program that implies a program that addresses much more than enrichment for power purposes only:

“I declare here that with the grace of God, the Iranian nation will produce 20 percent fuel and anything it needs itself.”

Iran’s current uranium stockpile is at 3.5 percent, and according to Ahmadinejad, Iran is now ready to enrich it to twenty percent which is the grade needed to power a small medical research reactor in the Iranian capital.

Uranium at low levels of enrichment can be used for fuel, but enriched to ninety percent and higher, it becomes weapons grade. The major world powers have been trying to persuade Iran to ship its uranium abroad for processing into fuel for their “research reactor”.

Iran agreed last October that it would ship its uranium out of the country for processing, but has since balked and now refuses to follow through and has presented counterproposals to keep the uranium supplies in Iran – shipping abroad would leave Iran without enough uranium to produce a bomb.

Ahmadinejad vowed that Iran would enrich the uranium itself.

Between thirty to seventy pounds of weapons grade (enriched to ninety percent or above) uranium would be needed to produce a nuclear bomb. Iran currently is in possession of 3,300 pounds of low-enriched uranium (3.5 percent) — enough to produce highly enriched material for two such weapons.

The Institute for Science and International Security – familiar with Iran’s nuclear endeavors – state the process of moving to twenty percent enriched uranium from 3.5 would take months, but from twenty percent to weapons grade would only require an additional couple of weeks. The ISIS went on to state that Iran could be enriching to higher levels within months after reconfiguring and testing its centrifuges, the machines that spin uranium gas into enriched material.
