Fresh bigotry

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called for Israel to be “wiped off the map.”

“The skirmishes in the occupied land are part of a war of destiny. The outcome of hundreds of years of war will be defined in Palestinian land,” he said.
Worldwide condemnation for the comments has been swift. Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister said he wanted to “vigorously condemn the remarks made by Iran’s president. We are in the 21st century. Canada will never accept such hatred, intolerance and anti-Semitism. Never.”

The comments should be condemned in the strongest possible terms. They are anti-Semitic, vicious, counterproductive and immoral.
