Iran makes the US case

The European Union and Russia have joined condemnation of the Iranian president's public call for Israel to be 'wiped off the map'.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's remark has already been condemned by individual EU states and Canada who all summoned Iranian diplomats for an explanation.

A top Israeli minister called for Iran to be expelled from the United Nations.

The White House said the comment showed the US was right to be concerned about Iran's nuclear programme.

Dumb or what? The US and the UK have been making grumbling noises about Iran for a while, the US has changed its nuclear policy to allow for first strike and the Iranian president calls for Israel to be 'wiped from the map'. I'm thinking this wasn't such a smart move and is going to cost Iran big time.

Everyone seems upset that Iran calls to erase Israel (which is horrible), but there doesn't seem to be anger about they also call for death to Americans as well?

I think it has more to do with the context: Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza strip and the drive towards a co-existent Palestinian state; faced with open aggression from a islamic fundamentalist country with nuclear ambitions and capability.
