Israel planning to open a can of whoop ass?

Things aren't going well in the Middle East. Do they ever?

In the latest episode of my god is better than your god, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the Holocaust a myth and that "Europeans are responsible for any crimes that may have been committed against Jews, and that the 'oppressed Palestinian nation' should not have to pay the price of land." The Iranian president "said the West has 'fabricated a legend' which it holds 'above God' of the systematic killing of millions of Jews by Nazi Germany during World War II."

In other news, Israel is preparing for war against Iran.

According to Human Events Online:
Israel is sending increasingly clear signs that it is gearing up for a major military confrontation with the soon-to-be nuclear power of Iran.

Consider that in recent weeks:
  • Israeli military intelligence chief Aharon Zeevi Farkash said Israel will have to admit the failure of diplomatic efforts to contain Iran’s nuclear weapons program if Iran is not referred to the U.N. Security Council before the end of March.
  • Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz declared that Israel must get ready for actions “other than diplomatic” to solve the Iranian problem.
  • And citing Iran as an “existential threat,” Likud Party Chairman candidate Benjamin Netanyahu was even more blunt, making an attack on Iran an explicit campaign promise.
