Bush: We Will Defend Israel

From Jihad Watch:

US President George W. Bush said he hoped to resolve the nuclear dispute with Iran with diplomacy, but warned Tehran he would "use military might" if necessary to defend Israel.

"The threat from Iran is, of course, their stated objective to destroy our strong ally Israel. That's a threat, a serious threat. It's a threat to world peace," the US president said after a speech defending the war in Iraq.

"I made it clear, and I'll make it clear again, that we will use military might to protect our ally Israel," said Bush, who was apparently referring to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's call for the destruction of Israel.

Ahmadinejad may just be saber rattling when he talks about Israel, But I doubt it, and we would be foolish not to take his fanaticism seriously. The above picture shows Ahmadinejad as one of the hostage takers from 1979.
