CNN propaganda re/Iran


Richard Moore

The following article is entitled "Iranian president: Destroy Israel". It then 
begins with "Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday the solution to
the Middle East crisis was to destroy Israel, state-media reported."

In fact, what Ahmadinejad talked about was "the elimination of the Zionist 
regime". He is talking about his hope for a regime change -- a sentiment many of
us might share -- not about a military attack. And even the word "elimination" 
must be questioned...whose translation is that?

The article then goes on to promote the myth that Hezbollah, the freedom 
fighters trying to defend Lebanon from ongoing Israeli aggression, are somehow a
proxy for Iran. Clearly CNN is presenting this blatant propaganda in order to 
help set the stage for an illegal US attack on Iran.

Iranian president: Destroy Israel

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday the 
solution to the Middle East crisis was to destroy Israel, state-media reported.

In a speech during an emergency meeting of Muslim leaders in Malaysia, 
Ahmadinejad also called for an immediate cease-fire to end the fighting between 
Israel and the Iranian-backed group Hezbollah.

"Although the main solution is for the elimination of the Zionist regime, at 
this stage an immediate cease-fire must be implemented," Ahmadinejad said, 
according to state-run television in a report posted on its Web site Thursday.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev accused Ahmadinejad of trying to 
rally the region to support Iranian-backed 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 called on all Muslim states to "cut their open and secret political 
and economic ties with the fake and outlawed Zionist regime" in response to its 
attacks against Lebanon.

He also urged Muslim states to "isolate" the United States and Britain for 
supporting Israel's military attacks against Lebanon.

Ahmadinejad also rejected deploying international forces on the Israeli-Lebanese

"Peace and security in Lebanon and its borders has to be preserved by the 
Lebanese government and people. Deployment of foreign forces is not acceptable 
in any shape unless it is just, based on U.N. rules and preserves the unity and 
territorial integrity of Lebanon," he said.
