Everyone in Israel Can Now Sleep Soundly
"Iran is quite distant from Israel," said Carter, 83. "I think it would be almost inconceivable that Iran would commit suicide by launching one or two missiles of any kind against the nation of Israel."
So, the Israelis have that bit of Carter wisdom going for them.
Here's what the President of Iran said about Israel's safety from Iranian attack last year:
"Although the main solution is for the elimination of the Zionist regime, at this stage an immediate cease-fire must be implemented," he said.
Ahmadinejad, who has drawn international condemnation with previous calls for Israel to be wiped off the map, said the Middle East would be better off "without the existence of the Zionist regime."
Israel "is an illegitimate regime, there is no legal basis for its existence," he said.
So whom to believe about Iran's intentions, the President of Iran or increasingly morally blind (and anti-Semitic) Jimmy Carter? Tough, tough call.
