Drunken Iranian girls bite and beat up policemen
Bangalore, February 19, 2010
The prospect of 60 lashings appears to have had a sobering effect on two sloshed Iranian women students who allegedly assaulted policemen conducting routine checks on Wednesday night.
This is the stiff punishment for drinking that awaits them back home if they are deported. Consequently, they were believed to be pleading for mercy a day after their drunken display of rage.
The two foreign nationals were produced before a local court on Thursday evening. The government may deport the women to Iran if they are found guilty of any of the multiple cases registered against them by the Bangalore police.
The Iranians in the dock – Azhar Fazile and Fathima Muhmad – are both in their late 20s and study in separate private colleges in the city. On Wednesday, the women were travelling in a car when they were flagged down by the Commercial Street police near M. G. Road around 1 a.m.
Both girls were drinking beer and wine in the car, the police said. They were also found to be in possession of several liquor bottles. This was not all. Neither of them had a valid driving licence. The car’s registration papers were also not available.
According to the police, Fathima — who was at the wheel — was subjected to an alcometer test. Her alcohol consumption level was detected to be 59 per cent above permissible limits, the police said, adding that they then tried to take possession of the women’s car.
“That’s when Fathima and Azhar started throwing a violent tantrum. They hurled abuses and dared the policemen to arrest them. One of them even bit sub-inspector Rao Ganesh Janardhan when he tried to get them out of the car,” Commercial Street assistant commissioner of police Ashok Kumar said.
“When I managed to pull Fathima out of the car, she started hitting me again with a tool. Then she fled,” Janardhan, who sustained a minor fracture on the forearm, said.
But Fathima returned soon and smashed her own car’s windscreen with a stone, said the police. The two were somehow overpowered with the help of bystanders and taken to the police station.
When the crew of a Kannada TV channel turned up at the police station, Fathima rushed towards the cameraman and smashed his equipment, a police officer said. She had to be pinned to the ground for a few minutes.
After some time both girls came to their senses, he added.
The police have arrested the women and registered multiple cases against them. “We have impounded their passports. Both are in India on student visas. Such behaviour can be ruinous for their academic career,” deputy commissioner of police Chandrashekhar said.
The police have informed the Iranian Consulate in Hyderabad about the incident. “Both girls have realised their mistake. They are pleading for mercy,” said Kumar.
The city police have issued a stern warning to all foreign students in the city. Bangalore is a popular destination for students from Iran, Lebanon, Bahrain and several east African countries.

Professor K.S. Lal has studied and taught the history of Islam in India for the last more than fifty years. His characterization of Islam as an ideology is being presented below:
1 Islam is understood more correctly when it is called Muhammadanism. Muhammad is the central figure in Islam. He controls the hearts and minds of all Muslims everywhere…
2. Fundamentalism is not accidental but essential to Islam It sees unchangeability as strength. That is why the word reform is so abhorrent to Muslim thinkers and religious leaders …
3. In Islam truth is established by the sword… dissent is hated as heresy and stamped out as infidelity … early medieval Indian Muslim chronicles mention the sword as the greatest harvester of converts. Islam was made to spread, as the old saying goes, with Quran in one hand and sword in the other. Sword was freely used in forcing people to become Musalmans
4. There is a uniqueness about Islam. Non-Muslims are to be converted to Islam freely. But once a Kafir becomes a Musalman, he has to remain one for ever thereafter. He is not permitted to renounce Islam or revert to his original faith. Punishment for such apostasy is death…73
5. Islam lacks any doctrine of coexistence... Muslim madrasas cannot shed their Kafir complex… The present adjustment of coexistence is a temporary expediency in India…74 It is the teaching of Islam to shun contact with non-Muslims except with a view to converting them Muslim separatism expresses itself in many ways 75
6. In Islam all human beings are not treated as equals. It makes a distinction between Muslims and non-Muslims. A non-Muslim is a Kafir, an inferior being. Non-Muslims do not enjoy any human right in this world; they cannot enter Paradise after death. Islam has two sets of principles of morality, ethics and justice: one is for Muslims and the other for non-Muslims. Sincerity, well-wishing and brotherhood are for the believers and faithful Islamic scriptures recommend setting Muslims against non-Muslims, believers against infidels to defend Islam and destroy unbelief. Individual and group killings of Kafirs is encouraged 78
7. Islam recommends Jihad or permanent war on adherents of other religions This makes Islam a totalitarian and terrorist cult which it has remained ever since its birth.79 There have been wars but wars fought by Muslims are in the service of Allah. This gives Islamic belligerency divine sanction and terrorism becomes a divine command 80
8. Like proselytization, desecrating and demolishing the temples of non-Muslims is also central to Islam. Iconoclasm derives its justification from the Quranic revelations and the Prophets Sunnah or practice …81 non-Muslims cannot reclaim their desecrated temples. This is the law of Islam…82
9.Islam has all the ingredients of imperialism found anywhere in the world in any age… 83 By destroying the national spirit of non-Arab Muslims, Islam has demolished the Asian centres of civilization such as Egypt, Iran and India…84
10. The Islamic principles of denigrating the non-Muslims, of aggression and violence against them – principles that perpetually incite to riot and rapine – have boomeranged. However brave face the fundamentalists may try to put up, the victims of Islam today are by and large Muslims themselves. The Prophet must have known that violence begets violence and repeatedly exhorted Muslims not to kill one another after his death. He also had a premonition that violence of Islam against non-Muslims will be met with a backlash. There is a hadis in Sahih Muslim which says that once the Rasul opined that Islam which began in poverty in Medina would one day return to Medina in poverty. Just as a snake crawls back and coils itself into a small hole, so will Islam be hunted out from everywhere and return to be confined to Mecca and Medina. The increasing power of the non-Muslim West and the disenchantment of Muslim dissidents point towards that possibility, howsoever remote.
Prof Lal has presented many other facets of Islam such as that Islam has no word for democracy; that secularism and Islam are mutually exclusive; that Islam can set up only a theocratic state; that Islam has institutionalised slavery and degraded women; and that Islam has laid waste many countries.

Men stoned to death for adultery, murder in Iran
Officials say two men in Iran stoned to death for adultery and murder
TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) — Officials say two men in Iran have been stoned to death for adultery and murder, while another escaped death by digging his way out of the hole where he was buried to face a similar fate, according to media reports.
The sentences follow sharp criticism by human rights groups of Iran’s use of such punishments.
Judiciary spokesman Alireza Jamshidi on Tuesday told reporters about the stonings, which took place in the northeastern city of Mashhad about 20 days ago, the reports said.
According to the Mashhad prosecutor, the men committed various crimes, including adultery and murder, Jamshidi said.
In the practice, the men are buried up to their chests and people pelt them with stones until they die.
A third was supposed to have been stoned to death. However, he freed himself by climbing out of the stone hole. He still awaits punishment.
“Stoning is a horrific practice, designed to increase the suffering of those facing execution, and it has no place in the modern world,” Amnesty International said last year.
Jamshidi said Iran’s judiciary chief, Ayatollah Heshemi Shahroudi, had made recommendations that would ban the practice and said that a measure has been introduced in Parliament to stop the punishment.
But “until this measure is approved and becomes law, the judges have the independence not to pay heed to the recommendations of the Judiciary chief,” Jamshidi said.
Amnesty said in a report last year that Iran’s penal code allows execution by stoning as the penalty for adultery. The group said the law calls for stones “large enough to cause pain, but not so large as to kill the victim immediately.”
In August, Amnesty International issued a statement welcoming an announcement that stoning had been suspended and several women had their sentences commuted.
In that announcement, the group said at least one stoning execution was carried out in 2007 in Qazvin province and a woman and a man were known to have been stoned to death in Mashhad in May 2006.
“The majority of those sentenced to death by stoning are women. Women are not treated equally with men under the law and by courts, and they are also particularly vulnerable to unfair trials because their higher illiteracy rate makes them more likely to sign confessions to crimes they did not commit,” Amnesty said. end

Stoning victim ‘begged for mercy’
A young woman recently stoned to death in Somalia first pleaded for her life, a witness has told the BBC.
“Don’t kill me, don’t kill me,” she said, according to the man who wanted to remain anonymous. A few minutes later, more than 50 men threw stones.
Human rights group Amnesty International says the victim was a 13-year-old girl who had been raped.
Initial reports had said she was a 23-year-old woman who had confessed to adultery before a Sharia court.
Numerous eye-witnesses say she was forced into a hole, buried up to her neck then pelted with stones until she died in front of more than 1,000 people last week.
Meanwhile, Islamists in the capital, Mogadishu have carried out a public flogging.
Islamists are becoming increasingly open in the capital, Mogadishu
Mogadishu is nominally under the control of government forces and their Ethiopian allies, who face frequent attacks by Islamist and nationalist insurgents.
The BBC’s Mohammed Olad Hassan in the city says the flogging was a show of strength.
He says two men accused of helping to kill a man and torture his mother, who they accused of theft, were each given 39 lashes in the north-eastern suburb of Suqa-hola.
The man who actually killed the alleged thief was released, after agreeing to pay his family 100 camels in compensation.
Before the flogging, hundreds of Islamist fighters performed a military parade, our reporter says.
Cameras were banned from the stoning in Kismayo, but print and radio journalists who were allowed to attend estimated that the woman, Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow, was 23 years old.
People were saying this was not good for Sharia law, this was not good for human rights, this was not good for anything
However, Amnesty said it had learned she was 13, and that her father had said she was raped by three men.
When the family tried to report the rape, the girl was accused of adultery and detained, Amnesty said.
Convicting a girl of 13 for adultery would be illegal under Islamic law.
A human rights activist in the town told the BBC on condition of anonymity that he had received death threats from the Islamic militia, who accuse him of spreading false information about the incident.
He denies having anything to with Amnesty’s report.
Court authorities have said the woman came to them admitting her guilt.
She was asked several times to review her confession but she stressed that she wanted Sharia law and the deserved punishment to apply, they said.
But a witness who spoke to the BBC’s Today programme said she had been crying and had to be forced into a hole before the stoning, reported to have taken place in a football stadium.
“More than 1,000 people arrived there,” he said.
“After two hours, the Islamic administration in Kismayo brought the lady to the place and when she came out she said: ‘What do you want from me?’”
“They said: ‘We will do what Allah has instructed us’. She said: ‘I’m not going, I’m not going. Don’t kill me, don’t kill me.’
“A few minutes later more than 50 men tried to stone her.”
‘Checked by nurses’
The witness said people crowding round to see the execution said it was “awful”.
“People were saying this was not good for Sharia law, this was not good for human rights, this was not good for anything.”
But no-one tried to stop the Islamist officials, who were armed, the witness said. He said one boy was shot in the confusion.
According to Amnesty International, nurses were sent to check during the stoning whether the victim was still alive. They removed her from the ground and declared that she was, before she was replaced so the stoning could continue.
The port of Kismayo was seized in August by a coalition of forces loyal to rebel leader Hassan Turki, and al-Shabab, the country’s main radical Islamist insurgent organisation.
Mr Turki is on the US list of “financers of terrorism”.
It was the first reported execution by stoning in the southern port city since Islamist insurgents captured it.
The BBC had a reporter in the area, but he was shot dead in Kismayo in June.

The Fate of Infidels and Apostates under Islam by Azam Kamguian
In a feeble attempt to disguise the Islamic attitude to apostasy, apologists often quote the Koranic verse: “There shall be no compulsion in religion”. For a Muslim wishing to leave Islam this is simply not true. In Yemen it’s punishable by death as it is in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan under the Taliban and other Islamic states. The most famous incidence of Apostasy was in 1989 when Ayatollah Khomeini announced a fatwa, or death sentence against Salman Rushdie for his alleged apostasy in writing “The Satanic Verses”. In a similar vein in Iran in July 1998 a man was executed for allegedly converting a Muslim woman to the Baha’i faith, this was even though the woman claimed that her mother was Baha’i and that she was raised according to that faith. Freedom House’s Centre for Religious Freedom recently protested the forthcoming trial, before a Sharia court of Islamic law, of Hamid Pourmand, the 47 year old lay leader of a small Assemblies of God church in the southern port city of Bandar-i-Bushehr. Pourmand, a convert from Islam, is facing charges of apostasy from Islam and proselytising Muslims, both capital offences in Iran. The government of Iran puts someone on trial for his life solely for his religious belief. The state’s criminalisation of apostasy is always subject to political manipulation and indicates an absolute negation of individual rights and freedom. Iran applies an extremist interpretation of Shiite Islamic law or Sharia, which harshly represses the free expression of belief, including religious conversion by Muslims. Iran’s Sharia courts view non-Muslims as second-class citizens, whose testimony is given less weight than Muslims, and sometimes even as non-persons, without any legal protections.
In countries ruled by Islamic law and where political Islam holds sway, writers, thinkers, philosophers, activists, and artists are frequently denied freedom of expression. Islamic regimes are notorious for the violent suppression of free thought. Often, as a government allies itself closely with Islam, any critics of the government will be accused of blasphemy or apostasy.
Non-believers – atheists under Islam do not have “the right to life “. They are to be killed. According to Islamic culture, sins are divided into great sins and little sins. Among the seventeen great sins, unbelief is the greatest, more heinous than murder, theft, adultery and so on. Courageous apostates aim to skewer the hypocrisies and inconsistencies of a faith that commands the allegiance of a billion people-as well as the hypocrisies of those Western defenders of Islam who would not tolerate its strictures in their own cultures.

Have the Courage to Say No to Islam
by Amil Imani, 22-Jan-2008
Nearly 1400 years ago, a group of nomads from across the scorching Arabian Desert conquered Iran (Persia), the greatest empire known to the history of mankind. With that, they injected their Islamic virus into the veins of their victim: the Iranian people.
Isn’t it time for the Iranians, in a show of solidarity, to stand shoulder to shoulder with the civilized free people of the world to defeat this virulent disease of Islam? In most other lands conquered by Islam, the conquered peoples have lost their identity and heritage and embraced the ways of their new rulers, under an “Arab” identity.
Conversely, in Iran a band of indigenous victims, “infected” by Islam, has mindlessly turned on their Iranian countrymen and tried to rob them of their remaining ancient heritage. It is exactly this savage minority that has established an oppressive tyrannical rule and wields power against the Iranian people. Yet even under the rule of Islamofascism, the overwhelming majority of Iranians of various ethnicities and religions remain faithful to their ancient creed – a creed that was given to the world by Zoroaster.
The twenty-first century presents great challenges and opportunities that demand new ways of thinking and behaving. The doctrine of Islam may have been appropriate for the desert dwellers of Arabia some 1400 years ago, for the very people stigmatized in Islamic literature as “Jahil” (ignoramus). But it is dysfunctional today, to say the least. As a matter of fact, Islam went astray from the very beginning and inflicted a great deal of suffering on both its followers as well as those who resisted its advance.
All pre-Islamic achievements that may strengthen the attraction on the part of the Iranian populace are de-emphasized and sometimes even falsely attributed to Islam, to prevent the average Iranian and the world at large from finding out the historical truths about the destruction and retardation Islam has brought to the region. Islam continues to take credit for the arts and sciences produced by the peoples it has conquered — and they were mostly Iranians, Egyptians, Syrians, Mesopotamians, and Babylonians.
Keep in mind that Islamists go by their 1400-year-old charter of Allah –the Qur’an– the same charter that they held in one hand while slashing the throats of millions of innocent Iranians and yelling joyously “Allah is the greatest” the whole time.
Dear Iranians, I am compelled to write this today and the words just stream through me without any outline or preconceptions. I am talking about this today, partly because it is timely, partly because it is good to know what Islam has done to our precious culture. Some things did not have to turn out as they did. Truth and provocative ideas ought to be welcomed by all of us. “A Slave is he who cannot speak his thoughts” said Euripides. Yet provocative ideas by themselves may not be enough. Actions are needed to correct the past mistakes and that starts with you.
Dear Iranians, as long as you remain a “Muslim” (as you are by default and not by choice), you will remain enslaved by a violent foreign creed and culture. You are unable to think for yourselves and break free. As long as you remain Muslim, you cannot possibly be called an Iranian. Being Iranian is defined by a state of mind, not by a place of residence, your language, your dialect, or even your genetic makeup or race. The barbaric Islamist mullahs and their mercenaries presently ruling Iran are not Iranians by any definition, except by virtue of an identity card. They are Islamofascists who have betrayed their magnificent heritage and have enlisted themselves in the service of a most oppressive and demeaning ideology, Islam.
The detoxification of Islam must start with you. It is you who should pick up the flag of freedom and march in the streets and defend your ancestors who were brutally murdered by the hands of the Arab invaders and forced you to become like them.
Remember, life is precious. It is to be protected, nurtured and celebrated. Humankind is moving, perhaps at a glacier pace, toward reconciliation, ever-expanding inclusiveness without any group or ideology imposing itself on others. Any attempt against this trend of unity in diversity is doomed to failure, as exemplified by the demise of fascism and communism. The charter of Islam, the Quran, for the most part, preaches discrimination, death and imposition of its dogma on everyone. Islam, just like fascism and communism, is a dysfunctional ideology that needs to be abandoned.
Humanity has matured considerably since the time of Muhammad. In order to continue its forward march, mankind must follow a roadmap appropriate for its age and state of development. It is foolish to insist that a book, which demands terrorism and was written over 1400 years ago, must serve as the one and only guide for humanity.
Let us remember that the Arabs who sallied out of the deserts of Arabia did not fan out to the outside world with the Quran in one hand and flowers in the other, preaching love and peace from street corner to street corner, aiming to capture the hearts and minds of the people. Islam was forced on every culture it encountered at the point of the sword. The kinder, gentler alternative was death or imposition of the backbreaking “jizyah” (poll tax) levied on those who were spared the sword and allowed to retain their religious beliefs as “infidels”. In spite of paying the heavy jizyah, non-Muslims were consistently treated, at best, as second-class citizens in their own homelands all across the Middle East.
Iran is our beloved motherland. She deserves love and respect from all her children. Iran is not a land of the evil, even though presently it is in its yoke. Persians often take great umbrage at being confused with Arabs. Authors like Robert Kaplan and V. S. Naipaul have documented the Persian antipathy toward the Arabs, all the while espousing the Arab religion enthusiastically.
Dear Iranians, you have a dilemma. You require reconciliation with the self. You are either the children of Cyrus the Great, who was the founding father of Iran and symbolized justice and respect for diversity, or you can claim to be the descendent of a man who was not an exemplary prophet. In other words, you are either a “Seyyed” (itself a laughable farce), which is another word for an Arab “lord”, or you are a magnificent Iranian who believes in the lofty tenets of Good Words, Good Thoughts and Good Deeds. You cannot be both. It is time to reconcile. The choice is yours.
My aspiration for my motherland is to see it freed from the evil that has been visited upon it ever since our people bought into a most depraved version of Islam. Whether people become Baha’is or Zoroastrians or Christians, it should be a free choice by each person. Even if a person insists on remaining Muslim, that is his or her prerogative. Yet, imposing the suffocating intolerant Islam on an entire nation is something that neither I, nor any freethinking person can accept. Our beloved Iran deserves to be a country where, once again, we take pride in being its children instead of the present when we often do all we can to conceal our nation of birth when visiting abroad.
Those of you who are still entrapped in the cult of Muhammad of the 7th century are victims of the Islamic virus that has destroyed in you the traditional respect for diversity. Iran is now a nation whose residents are most rapidly abandoning Islam( http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=5w5Rm2dxpeI%20%20)as they learn the truth about it. It is the fundamental ancient Iranian belief in the validity and value of diversity that has held the nation together over the millennia.
Islam, with its barbaric exclusionary and primitive Bedouin Arab dogma, overtook Iran and brutally strove to replace the traditional lofty Iranian belief in human rights and diversity. Regrettably, the forced subjugation of the Iranians succeeded to some degree in transmitting the Islamic psychosocial virus to many Iranians—the virus that transforms the person into a bigot who sees only his way and his belief as the right way and the only right mandate. Any and all people who do not see things “his” way are wrong and must be reformed by whatever means, including eradication, if the bigot sees fit.
The diverse people who give Iran its enduring strength include Persians, Azaris, Kurds, Baluchis, Turkmen, and more. One and all have their allegiance to Iran as an idea and a nation and they all have shaped Iran into a unified nation. Iranians are the spiritual children of Cyrus the Great and adherents to his Charter—the first Charter of Human Rights—that clearly proclaims the equal rights and worth of the beliefs and practices of all peoples.
Iranians are ashamed by the appearance of Ahmadinejad, “the Monkey”, on the international scene and his declared intent to wipe the Jewish homeland from the face of the earth. Ahmadinejad is not an Iranian. Just look at the numerous photos showing him proudly donning the Arab headscarf around his neck—a Palestinian headscarf that presently stands as a symbol of the Arabo-Islamic genocidal hate campaign against the “non-believers” of all stripes. One quick look at his willingness to give away territorial and political rights of Iran is another testament to his “un-Iranian” nature.
This shameless Ahmadinejad and his cronies, the criminal mullahs (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=JXBf1RQvqhc&feature=…, are personifications and agents of Ahriman “evil”. Nothing whatsoever is beyond their evil intentions. Keeping themselves in power by devastating our land, heritage and people is a small price that they are more than happy to pay. Shame, eternal shame on them. Iran shall rise again. It shall rise from its ashes. I am certain of that.
We do recognize that the dysfunctional Islamic “software” is deeply engrained in the minds of its victims who opt to remain in mental bondage rather than purge their minds of the Islamic “blueprint of destruction” and join the rest of the human family with a new emancipating program for life—that of liberty and progress. However, you must avoid any and all Islamic propaganda and join the forces of liberty and gain your freedom from this dark and alien cult of death. For 1300 years, the Islamists have forced you to choose and celebrate death over life, to cry instead laugh and to mourn instead of dance. The crown jewel of Islam simply does not fit the Persians. It never has and it never will.
Keep in mind that Islam hates the power of the individual. Islam hates the achievements of women. Islam hates progress. Islam hates the religious freedom of others. Islam hates the pre-Islamic heritage of Iran and other nations. Islam hates the light of truth. Islam is against free-will and hates democracy, liberty and justice for all. Islam simply loves to crush and eat you alive. That is what Islam does and that is what Islam is. Are you going to worship that? Just Say no, because you are not a robot, you are a human being.
Now, “praise be to the core of goodness” that binds all of us together as devoted lovers of our ancient heritage of respect and diversity. Our motherland is bleeding under the dark cloaks of the oppressive mullahs. Yet, our people shall overcome the poison that courses in their veins and will choose to turn away from the doctrine of death and destruction to, hopefully, pursue life and construction. All of you hold the key and promise for our homeland’s revival and its complete freedom from the centuries old yoke of the barbaric rule of Islam and its “Sharia”.
The light of freedom must be preserved for humanity. To save the motherland, all Iranians must unite and JUST SAY NO to Islam and SAY YES to liberty.

Imam Khomeini – A Unique Personality For The Muslims
June 02, 2008 17:51 PM
NEW DELHI, June 2 (Bernama) — Imam Khomeini, Founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran and leader of the Islamic Revolution was a unique personality for the Muslims worldwide, said an Indian scholar.
In an interview with Iran’s Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), Professor Baseer Ahmed, Vice- Chancellor, Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) said: “Imam Khomeini was a unique personality for the Muslims worldwide with his strong faith and practical devotion imbued with lofty Islamic aspirations.”
He referred to Imam Khomeini as a man with balanced mentality who was loved by all Muslims.
He added that although many years have passed since his passing away, his objectives are fresh and have still great effects on other countries.
Praising the exceptional personality of the great leader, Baseer lauded his unflinching struggle to restore the pride and dignity of the Iranian people in particular and Muslims in general by standing up against the arrogant powers.
He said: “Without any army or fighter, Imam Khomeini uprooted the strong Western-supported dictatorship of the Shah.”
Indian Scholar said Imam Khomeini reminded us that the duty towards Allah is very important but the duty towards mankind is much more important.
If a human being fails in one’s duty towards fellow human beings, it is difficult to escape from the displeasure of Allah.
“Imam believed, and rightly so, that if the Muslims of the world moved in the light of Islam and became the true follower of their religion, they would easily overcome the anti-human forces in the world”, Baseer said adding that he taught us the lesson of resistance and patience and to be afraid only of Allah Almighty.
Through this belief, Imam Khomeini shattered the myth of invincibility of America and Zionist regime by urging the Muslims to be alert if any dispute takes place among Sunni and Shia brothers, as it could be harmful to all Muslims.
“May Allah grace and bless the departed soul of Imam Khomeini.” “The great revolutionary leader is no more with us today, but, his soul continues to inspire Muslims in particular and humanity in general the world over” Indian Scholar concluded.
“He referred to Imam Khomeini as a man with balanced mentality who was loved by all Muslims.”

Ahmadinejad-Israel to vanish with or without Iran
Tue Jun 3, 2008, By Phil Stewart
ROME, June 3 (Reuters) – Israel will cease to exist with or without the involvement of Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday, and Israel branded Iran a “neighbourhood bully” that must be met with firmness.
Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told a closed door meeting of Israeli lawmakers in Jerusalem that the international community must take decisive action on Iran and reiterated that military action was an option.
On Monday, Ahmadinejad said in Tehran that the “satanic power” of the United States faced destruction and that the Jewish state would soon disappear from the map, a theme he returned to on Tuesday.
“This will happen whether we are involved in it or not,” he told a news conference at a U.N. food summit in Rome, adding that Israel was “doomed to go”.
At a closed-door meeting of the Israeli parliament’s security and foreign affairs committee in Jerusalem, Livni said the international community must send a strong signal to nations in the Middle East that are undecided on which camp to join.
“These are decisive days and the inability to build an international consensus against Iran will be interpreted in our region as weakness,” an official present at the meeting quoted Livni as saying.
“The military option needs to be kept on the table. Making clear the option is on the table may in the future mean it is less likely to be used,” she said. Livni referred to Iran as the “neighborhood bully”.
No other details of her comments were available.
Israel, an undeclared nuclear power, regards Iran’s potential possession of atomic weapons as a grave security threat, concerns fanned by Ahmedinejad’s rhetoric.
Reiterating that Iran’s nuclear programme was for peaceful purposes, Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday the United States was using it as an excuse to prepare an attack.
“President (George W.) Bush is very much interested in a military attack against Iran,” he said.
“The Iranian people are the most peace-loving nation of the world but we believe that peace can be durable and meaningful only when it is based on justice.”
Iran did not fear a U.S. attack and the president said he did not think Bush would be able to justify one before leaving office in January.
The United States, which severed ties with Iran shortly after its 1979 Islamic revolution, is leading efforts to isolate Tehran over its disputed nuclear programme, which the West suspects is a front for developing atomic bombs.
Iran says its programme is aimed only at generating electricity and rejected a Japanese offer on Tuesday to share its energy efficient technology with Iran in return for a halt to nuclear enrichment.
“If Iran said it would halt nuclear enrichment, it would be opening a window to international society and Japan would also be able to provide technical cooperation,” a Japanese official quoted Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda as telling Ahmadinejad.
The Iranian president flatly refused to give such a pledge, the official said. (Additional reporting by Robin Pomeroy and Isabel Reynolds in Rome, Zahra Hosseinian in Tehran, Jerusalem newsroom; Editing by Jon Boyle)
