  •  Google Iran and "wiped off the map" (7+ / 0-)

    Everyone know the president of Iran said he wanted to see Israel wiped off the map, right?  Except he never did, the BBC interpreter screwed up and everyone ran with it.  

    I thought it odd that Farsi had that expression, so I did 5 minutes of googling and found out it doesn't, and he didn't say that.  But that's too much work for our media, apparently.

      from the pages of history which would had been even worse assuming they will had succeeded in doing so (as if Iran were to succeed at any time in the future then Israel would not exist now, tenses are a pain in the ass when it involves non-linear time).

      •  Actually, he said the Israeli regime (0+ / 0-)

        would be erased from the pages of history, and from what I understand that's not an apocalyptic expression in Farsi.  Heck, there's some American regimes i'd like wiped from history.
