Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

Whether one classes Pluto as a dwarf planet or not does not affect its position relative to Uranus. Great start, troll!

It is not that we think you are the same-it is that you worship the same ugly bible.
The only difference is that the ugly xtians are more true to the bible than you are.

The above? An example of a Genuine Christhole™ without an actual ...

... argument.

What does he do? Does he criticize existing arguments? Nope.

He goes on **personal** attack instead.

That's all he has, apart from his lies of course.

T-Zar isn't real big on the consequences of his statements.

Neither does he bother to see if they contradict each other.

Exactly as the BuyBull does, come to think of it.

TEHRAN — Two days before he officially took office, Iran’s president-elect touched off an international uproar on Friday with disputed comments about its archenemy Israel, engendering a furious rejoinder from the Israeli prime minister that illustrated the wide gap between the two countries, fed by decades of hostility and mutual distrust.

Although Mr. Rouhani never mentioned Israel in the television clip, nor use the favored Iranian description of Israel as the “Zionist regime,” at least three Iranian news agencies appeared to misquote him as saying: the “Zionist regime is a sore which must be removed.” Later in the day they posted corrections.

Compared with the anti-Israeli invective often heard from other Iranian leaders, most notably Mr. Rouhani’s predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the remarks were mild — a possible indication of Mr. Rouhani’s effort to portray himself as a moderate who wants to take steps to ease Iran’s tensions with the West.

Nevertheless, the initial translation of Mr. Rouhani’s comments infuriated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel. He has previously described Mr. Rouhani as a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” whose June 14 election victory was unlikely to change Iran’s policies, particularly regarding what Israel views as an Iranian determination to become a nuclear weapons power.

“Rouhani’s true face has been revealed earlier than expected,” Mr. Netanyahu said in a statement.“Even if they will now rush to deny his remarks, this is what the man thinks and this is the plan of the Iranian regime. These remarks by President Rouhani must rouse the world from the illusion that part of it has been caught up in since the Iranian elections.

“The president there has changed but the goal of the regime has not: To achieve nuclear weapons in order to threaten Israel, the Middle East and the peace and security of the entire world. A country that threatens the destruction of the State of Israel must not be allowed to possess weapons of mass destruction.”

When told later that the original translation had been wrong, and that Mr. Rouhani had in fact not referred directly to Israel or said anything about removing the “sore,” Mr. Netanyahu’s office was unmoved and seemingly uninterested in nuance.“We stand by what we say,” said his spokesman, Mark Regev.“The remarks attributed to him we think, we are sure, that represents his true outlook.”

Whether intended or not, the episode represented Mr. Rouhani’s first international test over Israel, one of the most vexing subjects for Iranian leaders.

While he has espoused an approach of moderation that would help improve Iran’s relations with the outside world — an approach that helped him win the election — he had been expected to say something critical about Israel at the Quds Day celebration, an annual ritual here for Iranian politicians and a reflection of of what they view as Israel’s illegitimacy.

On Friday, in his final public speech, Mr. Ahmadinejad repeated those doubts.

In 2006, Mr. Ahmadinejad organized a conference in Tehran to which famous Holocaust deniers were invited, among them the former Ku Klux Klan member David Duke

The British foreign secretary, William Hague, has called his Iranian counterpart, Ali Akbar Salehi, to say that the UK is open to improving London-Tehran ties on "a step-by-step and reciprocal basis".

In his phone conversation with Iran's foreign minister earlier on Wednesday, Hague also raised the issue of Tehran's nuclear dossier which is the subject of an international dispute and talks over it is currently at stalemate.

"The Foreign Secretary reiterated the need for urgent progress to resolve the international community's concerns about Iran's nuclear programme," said a foreign office statement.

"He made clear that the UK was open to improvements in the bilateral relationship with Iran, on a step-by-step and reciprocal basis."

Iran-UK diplomatic relations has been downgraded since November 2011 when the British embassy in Tehran was stormed by a mob which triggered one of the worst crises in the bilateral ties since the 1979 Islamic revolution.
