Iran wants "peace and friendship for all," the country's president said Wednesday while again denying Western assertions his nation is pursuing nuclear weapons and trying to destabilize Iraq.
But Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took a hard line against Israel, calling it "an invader" and saying it "cannot continue its life..."
"We want friendship -- friendship to all. We love all nations and all human beings. Anyone who is killed, we are against it."
Perhaps Ahmadinejad wants to invite all Israelis to a special peace summit.
Iran has been waging a terror war on the US and US interests since 1979. How we deal with Iran is likely to be one of the leading foreign policy issues of the next campaign. Appropriately so.
