Is Ahmadinejad ready to sacrifice Iran to destory Israel?

Here's one view of the Iranian threat from Israel's former national security advisor.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, if he ever became the supreme decision maker in his country, would "sacrifice half of Iran for the sake of eliminating Israel," Giora Eiland, Israel's former national security adviser, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.

At present, Eiland stressed, the ultimate decision maker in Iran was Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, 67, whom he said was "more reasonable." But, Eiland went on, "if Ahmadinejad were to succeed him - and he has a reasonable chance of doing so - then we'd be in a highly dangerous situation."

The 49-year-old Iranian president, he said, "has a religious conviction that Israel's demise is essential to the restoration of Muslim glory, that the Zionist thorn in the heart of the Islamic nations must be removed. And he will pay almost any price to right the perceived historic wrong. If he becomes the supreme leader and has a nuclear capability, that's a real threat."

In facing up to Iran's nuclear ambitions, Eiland said the United States had three possible courses of action, "all of them bad," and that a decision could not be postponed for too long, "since delay, too, is a decision of sorts."
The three options are to give up and to accept that Iran will go nuclear; to launch a last-ditch effort at diplomacy; and to launch a military option.

Chances of Iran giving up it's nuclear weapon's program? Zero. Guess we have 2 options and letting them have nukes isn't one of them.

I'll agree with anonymous. Israel must survive as a nation. It's prophetic.

Uh, "prophetic" is a gag, right?

How about, "Israel must survive as a nation and not endure nuclear attack - same as France, Canada, New Zealand, and other nations of the world.

Word Verification sucks!

He's ready to sacrifice Iran, that's no sweat of his brow. It's up to the free world to get that done before Israel is destroyed.
