Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Ahmadinejad's tirade would be an acceptable (if partial) reading of the history of the creation of the State of Israel.

Stuff like this might be enough for, for instance, Germany pulling out of the negotiations around Iran's nuclear program. Iran does need some European mediation there, otherwise it will be just the US and the IAEA, and we know how that turned out last time around.

I really wonder whether Sharon's recent shakeup of Israeli politics is not an attempt to get peace with Syria, Lebanon and Jordan as soon as possible, in anticipation of a meltdown in Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Finally, I played down Ahmadinejad's previous comments, but now it's obvious I was wrong.
