The mainstream media are at it again, concealing the true extent of another hate-filled speech by Iranian madman Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
This AP story mentions his genocidal threats, but quotes only three sentences from a very long rant: Iran President: Israel Is a ‘Fake Regime’.
And to the AP’s Nasser Karimi, threatening to destroy Israel is just a form of “criticism.”
TEHRAN, Iran - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday renewed his criticism of Israel, calling it a “fake regime” that cannot continue to exist.
“Some 60 years have passed since the end of World War II. Why should the people of Germany and Palestine pay now for a war in which the current generation was not involved?” Ahmadinejad said at a news conference. “We say that this fake regime (Israel) cannot logically continue to live,” he said.
This AFP story on the same speech doesn’t even mention the threats: Iran president says no need for talks with US on Iraq.
Neither does this one: Ahmadinejad says UN sanctions ‘unlikely’.
The release from al-Reuters also completely ignores the threats: Iran president says no need now for US talks.
A cynic might conclude that the media are shying away from reporting Ahmadinejad’s insanity because they want to avoid creating support for a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
