Menacing Annihilationist Threats

What's alarming is not just Iran's increasing store of uranium or the growing sophistication of its rocketry.  It's also the increasingly menacing annihilationist threats emanating from Iran's leaders.  Israel's existence is "an insult to humanity," says President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. "Anyone who loves freedom and justice must strive for the annihilation of the Zionist regime." Explains the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Israel is "a true cancer tumor on this region that should be cut off."

Artist Mel Alexenberg proposes doubling the number of stones in this Berlin Holocaust Memorial for the six million Jews of Israel that Iran aims to exterminate.  With this memorial, Germany, Iran's major European trading partner today, commemorated their having murdered the first six million Jews.
