Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is in annihilate-Israel mode once more. There are people who will tell you that such threats are not aimed against the Jewish people, since it's only the Zionist regime he has in view. And, indeed, on this occasion the 'Zionist regime' is what he's reported as saying must be annihilated, in the interests of freedom and justice. Notice, however, a small detail concerning historical periodization: according to Ahmadinejad, it has now been some 400 years that a Zionist clan has been dominating world affairs and been the decision-makers 'in political, media, monetary, and banking organizations'. That's a lot of years, 400; rather longer than Israel, 'the regime', has existed. So it looks like something more than just regime-change is at work in Ahmadinejad's thinking. Anti-Semitism perhaps?
