A note to President Ahmadinejad

It is reported today that Iranian president ("let's wipe Israel off the map") Ahmadinejad wants to move Israel to Europe. I suppose this is progress.

“The question is where do those who rule in Palestine as occupiers come from?" he asked his Saudi audience. "Where were they born? Where did their fathers live? They have no roots in Palestine but they have taken the fate of Palestine in their hands?”

For over two-and-a-half-million Israelis, the answer is, of course, that they were born in Israel or Muslim lands. Ask chief of staff Dan Halutz, whose parents came from Iraq and Iraq. Or go straight to the top and ask Israel's president Moshe Katsav, who was born in the Iranian city of Yazd.
