    iran pres.'s comments straight out of the Old Testament

    From Wikipedia:

    ..."Wiped off the map" or "Vanish from the pages of time" translation

    Many news sources repeated the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) statement that Ahmadinejad had demanded that "Israel must be wiped off the map"
    and another:


    Ahmadinejad said in a televised speech to a rally in the ... that the name of Israel be remembered no more. ...
    Here's what Psalm 83 says.....


    Psalm 83
    A song. A psalm of Asaph.
    1 O God, do not keep silent;
    be not quiet, O God, be not still.
    2 See how your enemies are astir,
    how your foes rear their heads.

    3 With cunning they conspire against your people;
    they plot against those you cherish.

    4 "Come," they say, "let us destroy them as a nation,
    that the name of Israel be remembered no more."

    5 With one mind they plot together;
    they form an alliance against you-

    6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
    of Moab and the Hagrites,

    7 Gebal, [a] Ammon and Amalek,
    Philistia, with the people of Tyre.

    8 Even Assyria has joined them
    to lend strength to the descendants of Lot.
    Selah

    9 Do to them as you did to Midian,
    as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon,

    10 who perished at Endor
    and became like refuse on the ground.

    11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb,
    all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,

    12 who said, "Let us take possession
    of the pasturelands of God."

    13 Make them like tumbleweed, O my God,
    like chaff before the wind.

    14 As fire consumes the forest
    or a flame sets the mountains ablaze,

    15 so pursue them with your tempest
    and terrify them with your storm.

    16 Cover their faces with shame
    so that men will seek your name, O LORD.

    17 May they ever be ashamed and dismayed;
    may they perish in disgrace.

    18 Let them know that you, whose name is the LORD—
    that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.

    This gives me goose bumps. I mean, God inspired to psalmists to write, and He knew thousands of years ago what Israel's enemies would say.......

    That would be scarier if evil zealots hadn't wanted the same thing for hundreds of years.

    It would be even scarier if the Big Mac you got at McDonalds actualy looked like the Big Mac that is pictured on the menu.
