Pay Attention to What Ahmadinejad is Saying

By Hugh Hewitt

Last week Iran's erratic president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad returned to one of his favorite themes--the destruction of Israel. Speaking in a televised address, Ahmadinejad called on the West to acknowledge Israel's "imminent collapse."

Speaking to a crowd on a visit to the southern port of Bushehr, where Iran's first light-water nuclear power plant is being built by Russia, Ahmadinejad further incited his listeners to "stop supporting the Zionists, as [their] regime reached its final stage."

"Accept that the life of Zionists will sooner or later come to an end," the Iranian president declared.

Like Hitler in the '30s, Ahmadinejad declares again and again his plans. And, like most of the free world in the '30s, these ravings of a determined fanatic are largely ignored.

The West desperately needs to pay attention to each and every speech by the ambitious-for-nuclear-weapons leader of Iran. And, if we are wise, we should take him at his word.
