London Newspaper Editor Prays for Iranian Nuclear Attack on Israel

London Newspaper Editor Prays for Iranian Nuclear Attack on Israel

Jerusalem Post .....for complete article

The editor of an Arabic daily newspaper published in London said in an interview on Lebanese television that he would dance in Trafalgar Square if Iranian missiles hit Israel.

Talking about Iran's nuclear capability on ANB Lebanese television on June 27, Abd Al-Bari Atwan, editor-in-chief of Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper, said, "If the Iranian missiles strike Israel, by Allah, I will go to Trafalgar Square and dance with delight."

In the interview, Bari Atwan was asked if he thought there is a process of détente [vis-à-vis Iran] and an American-Iranian inclination to reach a deal on Iran's nuclear ambitions.

"If there is a deal, it will be at the expense of the Arabs and if there is a war, it will also be at the expense of the Arabs," he responded. "I'm sad to say that we have no backbone now. If Iran reaches a deal with the Americans, what will be the bottom line? That Iran will have a nuclear program, and even if it does not manufacture nuclear weapons in the next 5-10 years, it will do so later."

Wild Thing's comment........

ALL Muslims “inciting to riot or war” should be forcefully evicted, deported or worse.....from their “host nations”. Can you imagine the riots, the violence, the calls for charging the editor with hate crimes or incitement to violence that there’d be if a Jewish newspaper editor said the same thing about Teheran or the Iranian nuke sites being nuked?

I have e-mailed Sky & The BBC both of whom have this chap doing reports and asked them both to stop using him.

Bringing pressure to bear is the best way to deal with this idiot and also hit him where it hurts, his wallet.

Why would you want to destroy the birthplace of the three biggest religions on the planet? Judaism, Christianity and Islam?
This man or woman needs to be strung up by their toenails.
Over here, we call it treason, but we allow it to happen because of "Freedom of speech."
But no one seems to realize we have to temper it and not make a fool of ourselves with our thoughts put to paper or put our foot in our mouth and hurt someone with it.
Israel is a beautiful place with beautiful people. Yes, they fight, but everyone does.

Not only the UK but we, with our Political Correctness are headed in the same direction. Not congress not the President have the stones to do anything about it.

Congress is too busy trying to OUT Republican Qu... er gays and the president is too busy selling the United States to the Mexicans.

Another "moderate moslem? I wonder if this bonehead realizes that a nuclear attack on Israel almost guarantees major destruction of most of the islamic lands. Israel will go down hard and depending on what kind of leadership America has (a worried thought) we will support Israel.

If enough people did this it would surely put an end to his writing for them.

Mark so true, everyone so busy with their agenda and none of them working in the interest of this country.

Tom, I agree, I pray that Israel gets real leadership, strong like they have not been. Heck I wish that for ouro country too.
