Decoding Ahmadinejad's rhetoric on Israel

Hooglund, Eric LU (2012) In Navigating contemporary Iran p.198-214
Abstract
The purpose of this chapter is to analyze three persistent charges that Israeli and Western officials persistently leveled against Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad since 2006: 1) that he has threaded to 'wipe Israel off the map the map'; 2) that he is a Holocaust denier; and 3) that he is developing nuclear weapons, presumedly to use against Israel. Although Iran repeatedly has denied all 3 charges, they have assumed the status of interrogated 'facts' in the international media. Is there actual substance to these charges or are they being reiterated as part of a campaign of moral justification for a military attach on Iran's nuclear development program?
