"president" of Iran: Can we be next?!

Confusing a podium with a stage, Iranian 'president' Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was trying a new delivery of some old material:
Iran's hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that if Germany and Austria feel responsible for massacring Jews during World War II, a state of Israel should be established on their soil. Ahmadinejad, who sparked an international outcry in October when he said Israel "must be wiped off the map", also repeated his view Thursday that the Jewish state was a "tumour".

"Now that you believe the Jews were oppressed, why should the Palestinian Muslims have to pay the price?" the hardline president asked in an interview with Iran's Arabic-language satellite channel, Al-Alam.

"Why did you come to give a piece of Islamic land and the territory of the Palestinian people to them?

"You oppressed them, so give a part of Europe to the Zionist regime so they can establish any government they want. We would support it," he said, according to a transcript of his original Farsi-language comments given to AFP.
What I think is really funny about this is that Israel kept the land fare and square with the proper beating they delivered the multi-national axis that surrounded them in 1967.

For Ahmadinejad to suggest that Europe fork over some land to the Jews is quite entertaining, considering the Arab world has never offered the red-headed stepchildren of the Middle-east - the 'Palestinians' - a chunk of land to call their own. In the meantime, 'Palestinians' have had to endure the 'oppression' that being given full human rights in the only functioning democracy in the backwards part of the tyrannical part of the world.

Oh, except for Iraq, they're a democracy now too.
