isn't it the time that the world stand a firm stand against neo-hitlers like iran's ahmedi nejad?
he and his so-called revolutionary guard are terrorists in the very sense of the word. imagine the ttragedies that might inflict the world if a manic like that possesses real nukes. brows thru youtube and u can see the atrocites he and his regime committing every day in his country and how young women get arrested and slaughtered just for not covering their head as his shiite teachings say. what kind of a person he is. i guess the us should put an end to people like him using religion to intimidate other people.

"More important, saying that Israel and the US are united by a shared terrorist threat has the causal relationship backwards: the US has a terrorism problem in good part because it is so closely allied with Israel, not the other way around. Support for Israel is not the only source of anti-American terrorism, but it is an important one, and it makes winning the war on terror more difficult. There is no question that many al-Qaida leaders, including Osama bin Laden, are motivated by Israel’s presence in Jerusalem and the plight of the Palestinians. Unconditional support for Israel makes it easier for extremists to rally popular support and to attract recruits."
As for the reason why they hate Israel. Israel still occupies parts of 3 other countries. It holds 10000 palsitinan prisoners most of whom are held without trial on the ground of resisting occupation. Israel kills Palestinian civilians on a daily basis( and an occasional terrorist every once in a while). Israel has defied 50+ UN resolutions against it. Israel human rights record when dealing with the Palestinians is probably worse than China or Iran ( check website like amnesty international and human rights watch.) So it is not like Israel is an innocent sheep surrounded by Arab wolfs. It just a wolf surrounded by other wolfs.
"Israel is often portrayed as David confronted by Goliath, but the converse is closer to the truth. Contrary to popular belief, the Zionists had larger, better equipped and better led forces during the 1947-49 War of Independence, and the Israel Defence Forces won quick and easy victories against Egypt in 1956 and against Egypt, Jordan and Syria in 1967 – all of this before large-scale US aid began flowing. Today, Israel is the strongest military power in the Middle East. Its conventional forces are far superior to those of its neighbors and it is the only state in the region with nuclear weapons. Egypt and Jordan have signed peace treaties with it, and Saudi Arabia has offered to do so. Syria has lost its Soviet patron, Iraq has been devastated by three disastrous wars and Iran is hundreds of miles away. The Palestinians barely have an effective police force, let alone an army that could pose a threat to Israel. According to a 2005 assessment by Tel Aviv University’s Jaffee Centre for Strategic Studies, ‘the strategic balance decidedly favors Israel, which has continued to widen the qualitative gap between its own military capability and deterrence powers and those of its neighbors.’ If backing the underdog were a compelling motive, the United States would be supporting Israel’s opponents."
"Some aspects of Israeli democracy are at odds with core American values. Unlike the US, where people are supposed to enjoy equal rights irrespective of race, religion or ethnicity, Israel was explicitly founded as a Jewish state and citizenship is based on the principle of blood kinship. Given this, it is not surprising that its 1.3 million Arabs are treated as second-class citizens, or that a recent Israeli government commission found that Israel behaves in a ‘neglectful and discriminatory’ manner towards them. Its democratic status is also undermined by its refusal to grant the Palestinians a viable state of their own or full political rights."
"This was well understood by Israel’s early leaders. David Ben-Gurion told Nahum Goldmann, the president of the World Jewish Congress:
If I were an Arab leader I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural: we have taken their country . . . We come from Israel, but two thousand years ago, and what is that to them? There has been anti-semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They only see one thing: we have come here and stolen their country. Why should they accept that?"
"Israel’s backers also portray it as a country that has sought peace at every turn and shown great restraint even when provoked. The Arabs, by contrast, are said to have acted with great wickedness. Yet on the ground, Israel’s record is not distinguishable from that of its opponents. Ben-Gurion acknowledged that the early Zionists were far from benevolent towards the Palestinian Arabs, who resisted their encroachments – which is hardly surprising, given that the Zionists were trying to create their own state on Arab land. In the same way, the creation of Israel in 1947-48 involved acts of ethnic cleansing, including executions, massacres and rapes by Jews, and Israel’s subsequent conduct has often been brutal, belying any claim to moral superiority. Between 1949 and 1956, for example, Israeli security forces killed between 2700 and 5000 Arab infiltrators, the overwhelming majority of them unarmed. The IDF murdered hundreds of Egyptian prisoners of war in both the 1956 and 1967 wars, while in 1967, it expelled between 100,000 and 260,000 Palestinians from the newly conquered West Bank, and drove 80,000 Syrians from the Golan Heights."
"During the first intifada, the IDF distributed truncheons to its troops and encouraged them to break the bones of Palestinian protesters. The Swedish branch of Save the Children estimated that ‘23,600 to 29,900 children required medical treatment for their beating injuries in the first two years of the intifada.’ Nearly a third of them were aged ten or under. The response to the second intifada has been even more violent, leading Ha’aretz to declare that ‘the IDF . . . is turning into a killing machine whose efficiency is awe-inspiring, yet shocking.’ The IDF fired one million bullets in the first days of the uprising. Since then, for every Israeli lost, Israel has killed 3.4 Palestinians, the majority of whom have been innocent bystanders; the ratio of Palestinian to Israeli children killed is even higher (5.7:1). It is also worth bearing in mind that the Zionists relied on terrorist bombs to drive the British from Palestine, and that Yitzhak Shamir, once a terrorist and later prime minister, declared that ‘neither Jewish ethics nor Jewish tradition can disqualify terrorism as a means of combat.’"

Ahmadinejad does not run Iran, it's the cleric's that do. He is no-more then a political front or a mere puppet.
Less one attempt to match him to be a President alike a majority of nations that have no-one else above them, will magnify the structure of Iran's leadership.
You can also call it a "dictatorship" when it comes to the clerics, because in Iran they influently develop and amend - past and existing politics, especially at the International level.
Nothing can be done without the "head cleric's" knowledge and approval regarding Iran.
With Iran it boils down to blatant religious ideology, nothing more or nothing less.
Their cleric's have made suggestions and commands to allow Jews and infidels to accept the Koran and Allah, before any jihadis kills a person. As a means to convert one into a faith of the Muslims. Thus, saving the life and soul, before they decide to kill you or not. What a bunch of wacko's.Source(s): retired ex-maine (R)

because of the fact we serve in basic terms Jehovah God, putting our faith in his Son and the dominion because of the fact the only answer to mankind's issues, we proceed to be impartial interior the international, siding without governments. We stood on my own because of the fact the only faith keeping Hitler's atrocities and he tried to exterminate us for it. there is information that Jehovah's Witnesses have been put in concentration camps and murdered actual alongside with the Jews, the Jews wore the super call of David on their reformatory uniforms and Jehovah's Witnesses had uniforms with crimson triangles.

Yeah people should really start thinking about doing something about him. I am getting so frustrated because every where I turn I see people saying that he isn't that bad and that war with Iran is the most horrible thing ever (even saying it is worse than war with Iraq).

And what do you propose the "firm stand" to be? Attempt to depose him? The only "stand" we need to take is to make sure that he does not attack the United States or its vital interests. Beyond that, the government of Iran is a matter for Iranians to decide.

It is very clear by Ahmadinejad's own statements that he believes the world is his and it is his duty to obey the Koran.
A war against him should not be criticized by the anti war folks because it's either him or us.
