Letter: The Iranian threat

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has time and again used harsh rhetoric in contempt of Israel’s place in the world. In May 2011, Ahmadinejad compared the creation of Israel to the spread of cancer throughout the body, saying that this “regime infects any region” and “must be removed from the body.” It’s quite clear what he wants. Ahmadinejad is specifically calling for the genocidal ousting of the State of Israel. Such hate speech cannot be tolerated by anyone.

In America, we all have freedom of speech under the First Amendment to the Constitution. However, this freedom should not be used to spread incitement and hate through lies and a demonization campaign. The accusation that Israel is an apartheid state is false.
