Iranian President to Israel: "Bomb Us, Already"

Dec 8, 2005

TEHRAN - Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said today that Isreal should just go ahead and bomb the country's nuclear weapons development sites. "Come on, already. We know you are going to bomb Natanz and Arak just like you bombed Osirak, so get on with it" said the recently elected hard-liner, directing his comments at Israel's government. Commenting to reporters after the official press conference, he further added that numerous of his recent comments were designed to spur the Israelis to action. "I've been ratcheting up the rhetoric...a little Palestinian solidarity here a little holocaust denial there...who knows, maybe it will move the needle, maybe not, we'll see" the President responded to a reporter. So far there has been no official response from the Israeli government, a request for comment to the Israeli embassy in Tehran was not successful.
