Wipe Israel off the Map? What Ahmadinejad Really Said

Posted by Anarchore on June 1, 2007

Every media outlet is repeating the lie that Ahmadinejad called to “Wipe Israel off the map”. He did not say that, but the lie takes on a life of it’s own in the Zionist media sphere we experience whenever we turn to corporate TV or print media.

Discerning readers know that this is propaganda in anticipation of an attack on Iran.

“Ahmadinejad did not say he was going to ‘wipe Israel
off the map’ because no such idiom exists in Persian” and “He did say he
hoped its regime, i.e., a Jewish-Zionist state occupying Jerusalem, would
collapse.”

Juan Cole, a University of Michigan Professor of Modern Middle East and
South Asian History, translates the Persian phrase as:

The Imam said that this regime occupying Jerusalem (een rezhim-e
ishghalgar-e qods) must [vanish from] the page of time (bayad az safheh-ye
ruzgar mahv shavad).[10]

According to Cole, “Ahmadinejad did not say he was going to ‘wipe Israel
off the map’ because no such idiom exists in Persian” and “He did say he
hoped its regime, i.e., a Jewish-Zionist state occupying Jerusalem, would
collapse.”[11]

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translates the phrase
similarly:

[T]his regime that is occupying Qods [Jerusalem] must be eliminated
from the pages of history.[12]
