It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned a plea from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to erase Israel. I feel like that used to be a regular feature on The God Blog. JTA reports on the latest:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the objective of the world must be the “annihilation” of Israel.

Ahmadinejad met Wednesday with ambassadors from Muslim countries to convey his wishes for the holy month of Ramadan.

Much of his speech, according to IRNA, the official Iranian news agency, focused on what Ahmadinejad described as Zionist control of the world, which he said stretched back 400 years.

“The president pointed out that in order to evolutionize the status of the world, decision-making is needed, the forces must get united, and their ultimate objective must be the annihilation of the Zionist regime,” IRNA reported.

“The Zionist regime is both the symbol of the hegemony of the Zionism over the world and the means in the hand of the oppressor powers for expansion of their hegemony in the region and in the world,” the news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
