"Iran's stance has always been clear on this ugly phenomenon [i.e., Israel]. We have repeatedly said that this cancerous tumor of a state should be removed from the region."
No, those are not the words of Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, speaking last week. Rather, that was Ali Khamenei, the Islamic Republic of Iran's supreme leader, in December 2000.

Aksa Martyrs" Brigades and the Islamic Jihad claim joint responsibility for yesterday"s suicide bombing in Hedera.Ã‚ The Al Aksa Martyrs Brigade is under the control of President Abbas.Ã‚ These are the same murderers he told Bush that would be brought into the PA security forces, and Bush of course agreed that it was a good idea.Ã‚ Stating that Abbas was a man of peace, the fact that he headed up the PLO and claims there was no Jewish Holocaust no longer matters as long as he serves Bush"s purpose.Ã‚ What happened to the statement Bush so often makes, that you don"t negotiate with terrorists?Ã‚ Once again we are picking up pieces of our women and children body parts soaked in blood in the streets of an Israeli town while Bush and Rice say we must give them more freedom of movement.Ã‚

Simon Wiesenthal, the Holocaust survivor who helped track down Nazi war criminals following World War II, then spent the later decades of his life fighting anti-Semitism and prejudice against all people, died Tuesday. He was 96.
Wiesenthal, who helped find one-time SS leader Adolf Eichmann and the policeman who arrested Anne Frank, died in his sleep at his home in Vienna, said Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles.
The EU envoy to the Middle East, Mark Otte, said in an interview appearing this weekend that Israel's recent uprooting of Jewish communities is a model for the rest of Samaria, Judea and Jerusalem.

The chief rabbi, Dr Jonathan Sacks, stated three years ago that: "Anti-Semitism exists . . . whenever two contradictory factors appear in combination: the belief that Jews are so powerful that they are responsible for the evils of the world, and the knowledge that they are so powerless that they can be attacked with impunity" (lecture to the Inter-Parliamentary Committee against Anti-Semitism, 28 February 2002).
